{Mirror Mirror} Liza’s Haul and the Cave

Posted April 15, 2017 by Liza in Stacking the Shelves / 7 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!  I hope you had a great week and an even better weekend.  I took a few days off from work this week so I feel more rested than usual 🙂

First off, I want you to join me in congratulating Effie, our newest co-blogger on her birthday!  Happy birthday and all the cupcakes 🙂


The kids were on spring break this week and we did a few fun things with them. My favorite was a visit to Luray Caverns in Virginia.  They are huge and the whole tour lasted over one hour. Here are some pictures:

I do hope to get another post related to my bullet journal soon as well as more discussion posts.  I’m also trying to study for a professional certification since I need to take the test soon and that’s kicking my but.  Wish me luck!

You Might Have Missed

New to my Shelves

Purchased for Kindle

Happily Ever After by Kelly Oram – I had pre-ordered this one since I adored Cinder & Ella!

Purchased for Audible

Till Death by Jennifer Armentrout – Everyone’s raving about this book and so I must read it.



Red Sister by Mark Lawrence – I haven’t read any books by Lawrence but Red Sister sound awesome!

Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser – Another book with a pretty cover that sounds amazing.

Spill Zone by Scott Westerfeld – I love Wsterfeld and Spill Zone is a graphic novel. What’s not to like?

Audiobooks for Review


Death and Night by Roshani Chokshi – This is a novella that’s actually 0.5 in the Star Touched Queen series and I can’t wait to read it.

Gem and Dixie by Sara Zarr  – Sounds like a profound story 🙂

Before I go, all of us at Quite the Novel Idea want to:

  1. Wonderful photos of the caverns. Hopefully I will get Till Death read soon, I just purchased it recently. Great selection of audio you have this week. Happy Reading.

    First I want to say Happy Birthday to Effie! Those caves look amazing, I wish I were there. Red Sister looks interesting. I will have to check it out. I hope you enjoy your books and this Easter weekend. I recently bought Horizon Alpha: Predators of Eden. Space colonies and dinosaurs, need I say more? The Romes came today from my schools library so I shall start it for my essay.

  3. We have a similar place here called Innerspace Caverns. I dreaded going down when I was little (heights, man, afraid of heights). I loved visiting the gift shop, though! I should go back. What a great way to spend a spring break day!

    Happy birthday, Effie!

    Happy reading and have a fantastic Easter!

  4. You got so many amazing books this week! I really want to get my hands on Gem & Dixie. It’s one of my most anticipated releases! Also, I really need to get my hands on Till Death and try to actually read it. I have my doubts about it, even though I’ve loved every J.L Armentrout book that I’ve read. Thank you for sharing!
