Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

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


My supposed book-buying ban is well…theoretical it seems. I see a book and WHAM! I buy it. It’s a dangerous thing. So glad I have an understanding (and literate) husband. Here’s this week’s book haul:

Books for Review:

escape velocity


A special thanks to Goose Lane Editions

for a copy of Escape Velocity by Carmelita McGrath


good to a fault


A special thanks to Random House of Canada

for a copy of Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott


Books I Bought:

some great thing


Some Great Thing by Colin McAdam


the host


The Host by Stephanie Meyer


Books I Borrowed:

books borrowed


The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani

N.W. by Zadie Smith


Unfortunately, I didn’t win any prizes this week, but I’ll be sure to keep my fingers crossed for next time.

Out of the books I listed above, which ones are you most interested in reading?

What titles did you haul this week?

    1. I know the feeling. I have so many “new” books on my shelves that just haven’t been read yet. If only I could read fast enough. That, or stop buying/getting new books. And you and I both know the latter won’t happen. The short haircut is new. I’ve had every kind of hairdo. It’s summer so I’ve gone short, but I can’t wait to grow it back again. 😀
