I was just jesting when Lauren confirmed she wanted me to raid her bookshelves! With all my feels, I feel honored! Thank you so much! She and I began newly friends over, what else, of course, books! Ultimately crying err, screaming over Rin Chupeco’s The Bone Witch Series, that I had long overdue wanted to read and now is just one book behind, because our bookstores sucks, Shadow Glass is yet to arrive BTW, Lauren…

I am getting far, so I was just jesting when I saw and commented on one of her post regarding Browsing Bloggers’ Bookshelves. And she gladly accepted and contacted me! REALLY SML!!!

Without further ado,

Welcome to Lauren’s Bookshelves!


  • I have read my fair share of Lauren Oliver Books and I have yet to read Replica Series, so yes! (ADDED)
  • WARCROSS BY MARIE LU is another, although I had my reservations with Wildcard, it was not for me. (READ and RECOMMEND!)
  • This Mortal Coil and This Cruel Design!!!! I have this set in my TBR in the back of my mind. I am not sure if I had this set on Goodreads but I have seen fellow bloggers raving about it. (ADDED)
  • I have the first book of Kingdom of Blazing Phoenix. (TO BE READ)


  • I want to reach into my screen and steal books 2 and 3 of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton; for I have this first one and I do not own those yet. Hahaha! (TO BE READ)
  • The Last Namsara sounds really good! (YES, another book that is still in my TO BE READ)
  • These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch, I was fairly hyped about this book, unfortunately, it didn’t sit well with my expectations. I mean I was imagining more sea adventures and all that and, I just, it’s not for me. (DO NOT RECOMMEND)
  • Mirage too is in my TO BE READ.


  • The Throne of Glass Series – Sarah J. Maas: I kind of grew up with that book? I read them when the first two books were only released and my, younger me love and was obsessed with it. Hell, I am still obsessed with Tower of Dawn. I claim it as SJM’s BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN HAHAHA (please, emphasis on me, myself and I). And then the last book happened. I was not pleased. I am sorry. I still liked it though, and I still RECOMMEND IT.
  • The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. I succumbed to the hype. And I buried myself in it. RECOMMEND.
  • Gosh, I haven’t tried any VE Schwab Books yet! I do own The Archive and The Unbound. I am too curious to pass out on ADSOM and Vicious too, so TO BE READ.
  • The Bone Witch and The Heart Forger – Rin Chupeco. I recently finished the second book. I TOLD MYSELF I WAS READY. I WAS NOT. Yes, another book I WILL RECOMMEND TIL MY DYING BREATH.
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor. I was not a fan of my first Laini Book, I still would love to read the sequel and give it a chance but I am not seeing it any time soon.


  • I am reading The Rose and The Dagger – Renee Ahdieh now, like at the moment, yes, I am sorry Priory… And the tension happening here now is raking my brain. So, far? I recommend hahaha!
  • A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas. I was taken surprised by this book. Hahaha! I really liked it, I have my frustrations at certain actions done here but I’m gritting at the edge of my seat! I would love to continue still with the 3rd and novella books. (RECOMMEND)
  • The Reader – Traci Chee. Here we go again, I want to get your copy. I recently scored The Speaker and The Storyteller at a local bookstore. And this is the only one I do not have yet. (TO BE READ)

There are so much more in the shelves, I wanted to hold myself from adding more. I am pretty sure I am not alone, a reader, who has a TBR that could kill them. Haha! Anyway we have reached the end. It was fun to go through your shelves, Lauren! I am thankful for this collaboration and opportunity! Hoping to do more with you.
