Filling the Shelf
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!)
Hello, hello, hello!
It’s been quite a while, right? Over a month since my last Mailbox Monday. Books still add themselves (magically, of course) to my shelves but I’ll be honest and say that, with the move, I’ve barely had the time to read – and I miss it immensely!
We are scheduled to move 2 weeks from now (2 weeks!!!) and there’s much left to do, but we are excited. For both of us, it will be the first time we are living in a city that isn’t where we met or where we live now. We’ll still be close to Montreal, but it’s a small town in a region that will mostly be new to us. We can’t wait to discover it together! Inspired by our past traveling experiences (which we kinda miss!), we’ve started a list of parks, restaurants and places we want to explore. The great thing is that we don’t know anyone living there (and we’ve gently asked friends and family not to ruin our adventure by googling too much – my mom loves Google, haha!), so it’s ours to discover, uninfluenced. We’ve never had this kind of experience, to explore the place where we live by ourselves, and we’re thrilled! So, once our very busy October is over, that’s our plan for November! The next two months should be fun 🙂
Now, on to the books! That’s five weeks of books and it’s not too bad, considering it was also my birthday. I’m looking forward to reading all of these – after the move, of course! But let me point out how gorgeous these new editions of Pride and Prejudice and The Book Thief are, and the awesome nostalgia of My Best Friend’s Exorcism‘s cover.
The Inconvenient Indian by Thomas King – Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine – Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen & illustrated by Alice Pattullo
