Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

It’s a New Year and a new week, which is why I like to start with opening the doors to The Bibliotaphe Closet to my readers by introducing new books and bookish items that I’ve been lucky enough to add to my library collection.

This meme “Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet” was inspired by the original meme that I participated in and which many of you may be familiar with: “Stacking the Shelves” hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

My posts will take the format of books and bookish items (including SWAG) that I have:

  • received from publishers and/or authors for review
  • purchased
  • received as a gift or prize through winning a contest


Here are this week’s new items, which continue to help make The Bibliotaphe Closet provocative.
