    February 2019 TBR: Bookstagram Edition

    *A new month means a new TBR and I’m very excited about my line up of books this month. So many of these were recommended to me on Bookstagram. I can’t wait to dig in. Grab some coffee or cocoa and add some new books to your TBRs. The books I’m most excited to read. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor I’m so excited to finally get my hands on a beautiful copy of this book from Illumicrate. I got special editions of Strange the Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares. They were so expensive but so worth it! The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon I can’t wait to get back…

    2019 Reading Challenge + January TBR

    *Welcome to the January 2019 Reading Challenge here @thecozyshelf. 2019 Reading Challenges I’m participating in a few reading challenges this year: The Modern Mrs. Darcy reading challenge My personal Goodreads challenge The Cozy Shelf reading challenge This year, my goal for Goodreads is to read 100 books. I read 71 books this year, and I wasn’t really focusing on completing my goal, which was 60 books. So I think with some actual motivation behind it I can get to 100 books pretty easy.

    November 2018 TBR

    *Today is the first day of November! All you book lovers know what that means. New TBRs! I have just a few books on my list this month. With the holidays just around the corner I’ll be surprised if I get more than what’s on my TBR finished.  My November Reading List Although my book list is small it’s filled with some quite hefty books. I am really excited to read all of them, but the top of the list is A Court of Mist and Fury. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses last month for the #charmsextracredit. I loved it! I read it in about a day…

    October 2018 Book Recommendations

    *Disclaimer: I am having a lot of trouble getting book covers to format correctly with Gutenberg. So this post has no actual pictures, but each book is linked to Book Depository. (These are not affiliate links. It’s just a way for you to see the cover images until I can figure out Gutenberg.) I really pick books based on their covers so if you’re like me just click the links to see all the pretty covers.* It’s officially fall. I’m so excited for the change in season. The fuzzy socks, comfy pants, and never ending cups of coffee are in full effect. So are all the yummy smelling candles and…
