{Mirror Mirror} Liza’s Amazing Haul, Journal and Victoria

Posted February 11, 2017 by Liza in Memes & Features, Stacking the Shelves / 13 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

Hi there gorgeous readers!  It’s been almost a month since my last Mirror post so bear with me because I have a lot to share today.  Let me start by getting my usual complaint out of the way.  Boy, are we busy at work!  It’s been an amazing beginning to the year thus far, SO much work that’s not even funny.  Thankfully two new staff were hired so I hope they’re trained and up to speed soon.

We are planning some fun romance related posts for next week.  Hubby and I are planning to have dinner on Sunday instead of trying to do something on Tuesday since it is a log busier during the work week.

I have been working on my journal and getting use to using it every day.  Here is the February journal spread:


What do you think? 

I have a weird fascination with anything related to Queen Victoria and the Victorian era, so imagine my delight when I discovered this awesome series.  I watched the first four episodes already and I’m loving it!

I’ve also been watching a lot of ice skating events on TV, I can’t wait for the Winter Olympics 🙂  I’ve tried to stay away from the news because, although I try to avoid talking politics in this blog, this are quite depressing right now.

  1. I really need to get a copy of The Wood when it releases – or earlier if I can manage. It looks and sounds terrific. You’ve collected quite a few good looking books and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on some of them.

      Well, it’s kind of a bullet journal, but simpler. I really don’t track a lot of stuff, but I love lists and tracking book/blog related things. I adored Heartstone for sure! It managed to capture the essence of Pride & Prejudice, which I love.

      You too Alyssa 🙂

    You got a very good haul of books! Heat Stone and Anglebound sound good and I am curious about them. Have a good week ahead.

    I read Antigone by Sophocles (written 442 BCE) and The Trojan Women by Euripides (written 415 BCE). I highly recommend reading them. I also picked up Hard to Get. As for why, it is not dark or threatening to remove hope and is positive. I need a break from Patricia Briggs’s Blood Bound. She is hitting me in the feels too much.

      I read Antigone and Oedipus back in college and they were okay. I haven’t seen Blood Bound before, but it sounds like you’re loving it. Happy reading Nathan 🙂

    I like your journal entry setup. So cute. Nice batch of books this week. Wintersong looks like a good one for the winter season. Happy reading.

      Get Heartstone!!! Specially if you love Pride & Prejudice (My review is scheduled for next week I think). Victoria is in the BBC channel here and I’m love it 🙂
