Stacking the Shelves

Sunday Posst

From the library:

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

From Barnes & Noble:

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Nameless: a Tale of Beauty and Madness by Lili St. Crow

As you can see, my eyes are bigger than my stomach.  I highly doubt I will get to all these anytime soon, but it’s good to have reading options, right 🙂

Life Tidbits

  • As I mentioned in my vlog, work has been very busy.  I love my job, but I am definitely feeling a bit overwhelmed.  It’s either so busy, or there’s a draught.
  • Spring is here, you guys!  It hasn’t been particularly warm, but it hasn’t been cold.  And the sun!!!  She’s here and shining her beautiful face down on Syracuse.  Woot, woot!
  • I bought this giant tub of Nutella at the store last weekend, even though I knew I shouldn’t.  But hey, it’s been a tasty week.  Note to self – pick up crackers for Nutella tomorrow 🙂
  • I ordered a Cath Kidson bag from Ebay.  It’s the first time I ever ordered anything from Ebay, and I hope I am not disappointed.  The seller had great feedback, and the bag is sooooo cute.  I can’t wait until it gets here.

      Yeah, Nutella was like the one good thing I took away from French in high school 🙂

      I don’t really have any expectations for Will Grayson, so hopefully I’m not disappointed.

  4. Your library is AMAZING. Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist & Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares two of my favourite books. Happy reading.

  5. I read Dash & Lily;s and it was okay. I still have Etiquette & Espiomage somewhere on my shelf.. Enjoy your reads! 🙂

      I’ve been meaning to read Dash and Lily for such a long time. Hopefully this is the time I actually get to it. And Etiquette & Espionage looks like so much fun!

  6. That festival sounds like so much fun! I want to go 🙂 I want to read Etiquette and Espionage!

    • Quinn says:

      Rochester Teen Book Festival is going to be awesome! Something that I love is that seating is reserved for teens. If there are more people than chairs, teens get the chairs. It’s good for teens to feel important like that. Although, I hope I get to sit down 🙂

  7. Stephanie Verhaegen says:

    Ohhh I’m so jealous you got Nameless! It’s one of the books I wanna have to badly!
    Happy reading!

    Here’s my STS!

  9. I think the Nutella and Etiquette & Espionage would go well together:) Nameless looks good too. Enjoy your books & hope you have a better week.

  10. You got a lot of great books. I hope you enjoy them :).

  11. Siiri says:

    Dude, you totally made me hungry for some Nutella LOL. As for the books *ashamed* I have not read a single one of these. I really want to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson (I always seem to stand infront of it in a book store) and Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares – one of my top tbr books. I hope they’re all enjoyable and have a great weekend:-)

  12. Thanks for stopping by my STS! Thirteen Reasons Why wasn’t as good as I expected, just okay for me. I do want to read Grave Mercy and Etiquette and Espionage though. Happy reading!

  13. Kelly L. says:

    I’ve had Grave Mercy on my shelf for so long and still didn’t get to it sadly. I can’t wait to see what you think of it Quinn!
    I’ve heard so many good things about Etiquette and Espionage, I have to read it soon.
    Thanks for stopping by my STS Quinn! (:

    • Quinn says:

      I’ve checked out Grave Mercy from the library before, but never read it. I’m a little intimidated by it, but I definitely need to read it

  14. I have a signed copy of Everyday by DL on my desk that I won in a contest a while back. I know I will love it if I could just find the time to read it! Great haul! That author event sounds like so much fun! 🙂

  15. Danielle says:

    Dash & Lily is cute. Achingly hipsters at times. I adore the Nick and Norah movie so can’t wait to hear what the book is. Grave Mercy sounds so good, everyone’s raving about it. Can’t wait to get around to it. Enjoy!

  16. I loved Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares and need to check out Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. I’ve had Grave Mercy sitting on my bookshelf for about a year now; it’s definitely time for me to get it read! Enjoy all of your books, and thanks for stopping by!

    • Quinn says:

      That’s how I feel about Grave Mercy. It’s about time that I read it. I’m a little intimidated by it, but I’m determined that I will maybe read it 🙂

  17. Lisa says:

    I LOVED Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. I read it around Christmas time and loved it so much I had it under the tree come Christmas day. Will Grayson, Will Grayson was okay. Just okay, though. I don’t know why… I just didn’t dig it as much as I was hoping I would. I’m reading Etiquette & Espionage right now. It’s pretty interesting so far. I hope you like all your books! (:

  18. I’ve been wanting to read Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. Heard it’s really fun. Will Grayson Will Grayson is supposed to be amazing as well. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

  19. I love Dash & Lily, it’s really a favorite of mine. Grave Mercy is amazing too. Work can be overwhelming… I’m glad I have the blog and reading as an outlet 🙂 My kids LOVE Nutella, we always have it around.

    • Quinn says:

  20. I hope you enjoy all of your books!! Etiquette and Espionage looks really fantastic for historical fiction fans, and Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares has been receiving really great reviews! At least the ones I’ve seen recently 🙂

    Fantastic haul! OMG I love Nutella too! I refuse to buy it because when I do I always manage to put on five pounds…

    Happy reading!

    • Quinn says:

      Yeah, I’m definitely going that way in terms of all the Nutella I’ve been eating lately! No willpower with it in the house. All I want is NUTELLA.

  21. Love Nutella! Great book haul, I’ve got Will Grayson, WG and thought Dash and Lily was a fun read. Happy reading 🙂

  22. Merin says:

    I hear you about being too tired to read when you get home from work. I feel that way myself quite often. 🙂

    And I picked up Nameless a few weeks ago. It’s a Snow White retelling, but that’s pretty much all I know!
