Welcome to Filling the Shelf, or as many of you know it, Mailbox Monday! If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, click away! (but beware, visiting other mailboxes will probably add to your neverending wishlist!)

Good Monday everyone!

I hope your week went better than mine : I was so ready to get back into blogging, but alas, it wasn’t to be. I got sick with my second cold this month, and this one was a very nasty one. Of course, when one of us is sick, the other soon is, too, so we’ve both spent the weekend inside, resting. I’m still coughing my lungs out but the worst seems to be in the past, and I’ve managed to do lots of reading.

I did manage to write one review, too, for Fiona Barton’s The Child I liked it, mostly! It’s out this week, too!

This week will be better, I just know, so I should have a positive update next Sunday. My mom is coming for a “surprise” visit. She’s moving closer to me, which is very exciting, so we’re going to look for some places for her!

And now, the books! You guys might recognize the first three from my 10 Thrillers I’ve Recently Added To My TBR list, and I am really looking forward to all of them – but most specifically, The Fact of a Body, which just sounds really interesting to me. And I’ve been wanting to read I Am the Messenger for so long, it’s quite close to the top of my TBR right now!

The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich – He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly – One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak – American Street by Ibi Zoboi – The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

What books did you recently add to your shelves?



  1. Nice mailbox! I really want to read The Fact of a Body!

  2. Hope you feel better soon. We’ve had a virus running through the family the past two weeks. Not fun.
    I’ve heard good things about He Said, She Said so I hope you love it!

  3. Feel better! I hope you enjoy He Said/She Said as much as I did.

    The Fact of a Body looks tempting, too. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. Oh no on your cold and your family’s cold. I hate the coughing kind.

    So nice you will have your mom closer.

    I enjoyed THE CHILD….a bit of a slow start, but it was good.

    Nice books…I didn’t know Markus Zusak.

    Get better. Try to enjoy your week.

  5. Sorry to hear you had a rough week. I hope you both are completely well soon. That is exciting that your mom will be closer.
    You have a good group of books to pick from. Hope this week is better. Happy Reading!

  6. Oh not fun! I got hit with a double whammy earlier this year. That’s so miserable. How awesome your mom is moving closer. Hope yall have fun looking about for her. 🙂

  7. I hope this week is better and that you’ll find a great place for your mom. Markus Zusak has a new book?!
