Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet
By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis
It’s been an abundant Valentine’s week where I received not only great gifts from my husband who wooed me with my favourite kind of goodies—a lamb plush toy and a set of China Glaze and Nicole O.P.I. nail polishes—I received a number of book greats this week!
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
- 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.
