{Mirror Mirror} Liza’s Updates and New Books

Posted August 5, 2017 by Liza in Stacking the Shelves / 14 Comments

Mirror Mirror is our feature that replaces the old Stacking The Shelves/Weekly Recap posts. Bieke decided to make her own original feature because it was more than just a STS or recap post.

Life, News & Happenings

I there gorgeous readers!  Crazy busy week, so I’m happy that I’m able to rest today.  The last members of the family left on Tuesday so we have the house to ourselves again.  This always brings mixed feelings since I miss them but I also enjoy going back to my routine.

Today is hubby’s birthday!!!  ¡Feliz cumpleaños tesoro!

So, that’s it, no more updates this week (sorry, but I’m so tired and getting a headache!)


You Might Have Missed

Stacking the Shelves

Purchased for Audible

Lucky in Love by Kasie West – I’ve yet to read a Kasie West book I didn’t love and I expect no less of this one 🙂


The Reunion by Sara Portman – Can I just tell you that I fell in love with this cover?  Gorgeous!

Monstress Vol2: The Blood by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda – I read volume one a couple of months ago and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

The Hawkweed Prophecy and The Hawkweed Legacy by Irena Brignull –  Not requested, but appreciated. These covers are so beautiful that I can’t help but want to read them.

A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor – I guess that this is the post of gorgeous covers!  Sounds good too.

Spellbook for the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle – I really liked Folwley’s previous book, The Accident Season, and this one has been in my TBR since I first saw it.


Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett – Nick loved this one, so I must read it.

What’s new to your shelves this week? 



I'm an avid reader (since I learned to read at age four) and a book blogger (since May, 2011).I read mostly YA, but I also read romance, new adult and some middle grade.

Born in Puerto Rico, hola :), military wife for 22-years, and mother of three boys.I work full time doing something else that I love (sadly I don't get paid for reading!)

    Volume 2 of Monstress! That is so exciting!

    I have been watching Alex, Approximately since its release because it looks so cute. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that and the other books.

  2. Happy happy birthday, Liza’s husband! You two are #goals. I am happy to hear that you have your house back to yourselves! Family houseguests are great but it’s even better when they are gone, no matter how much you love them. 😀 I hope you feel better!

    Have a lovely week, Liza. =)

      Thanks Alyssa! I’m feeling more rested now, but having a few health issues and crazy busy at work. If you want some advice, please don’t get old 😉

  3. I hope your husband had a lovely birthday! I totally agree with you, Kasie West always makes me happy. I LOVED Spellbook. It might even be better than The Accident Season, and Alex is one of my top reads for this year. So many good books! Enjoy! I admire all you guys that do STS, I am trash with keeping track, but I do remember I got If Ever by Angie Stanton this week. It was a really sweet romance and totally made my heart pitter patter with joy. I also got Autoboyograpyhy after the authors saw my Can’t Wait Wed tweet, which I thought was just awesome.

      I think he did Sam! I keep hearing amazing things about Alex, I hope to start on it soon. I’ll check on If Ever, it sound lovely 🙂
