Stacking the Shelves #59



Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!

------

Here are the books I've received the past week:


I haven't had the chance to buy books for myself recently but I did receive this surprise package of graphic novels from Macmillan! I've already read (and loved) Wires and Nerve and I'm super excited for the rest as well.

Three Year Blogaversary!



Well guys I don't know how the time passed by but it's officially been THREE YEARS since I first started blogging! When I first had the idea of creating this blog I was a freshman in high school and I hadn't been to any book events or met any authors yet. However, I saw all these book bloggers talking about books and their time blogging online and I really really wanted to join them. So even though I had no idea what I was doing I created Never Ending Books (it was called Dystopian Books back then) and started posting.

In the three years since then I've become a senior in high school, been accepted to several universities, been to BEA 2015 + 2016 + tons of book events, met and became friends with a lot of bloggers and other book-loving people, and a whole lot more. I've met publishers, publicists, editors, authors, and a bunch of amazing people that I continue to talk with to this day. 

It hasn't always been easy, I've had blogging and reading slumps where I just couldn't find it in me to continue even though I really wanted to or sometimes I just didn't have the time because of school and life. Despite all that, I continued blogging because at the end of the day I wanted to blog and discuss books; it was something I loved and I didn't want to give it up.

So here's to another three years (I can't even imagine what I'll be doing in a year let alone three) or more. I'll be starting college in the fall and I'm sure it'll take up a ton of time and make my blogging less frequent but I fully plan to continue and keep blogging! So thank you to everyone who's visited my blog, discussed books with me, and been with me all these years and I hope that the following months and years will be even greater than the ones before.

January Wrap-Up!





Summary:

With every single one of my college applications finished January was probably my easiest month of senior year yet. With the lightening of work I was able to read four amazing books that I thoroughly enjoyed. I have a review for Passenger up from when I first read it (2015) but the reviews for the rest should be up in the next month or so!

Books Read:

1. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken


2. Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

3. Caraval by Stephanie Garber

4. Frostblood by Elly Blake

Things I did in December:
1. Got accepted EA to the University of Miami!

2. Watched the movie Your Name and definitely teared up quite a bit

3. More college interviews! Now that I'm done applying and what's done is done the interviews have become much easier and even kind of fun

Things Planned in January:


1. MORE READING! I started to get back into it in January and February I hope to at least double the amount of books I read.

2. (hopefully) get into my EDII school! I don't want to reveal it's name just yet but if I get in you'll see me tweeting about it.

3. Maaaaybe go to a book event at Books of Wonder, I want to but I won't know until closer to the date.
