Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

It’s been a while since I’ve last published a post on the new books that have been added to my collection. But, since then I’ve been privileged to receive a number of great works of literary fiction—books I have been waiting to buy and read. And so, I’m also looking forward to this year’s summer TBR list where I have a few months to fully indulge in some much-awaited down-time dedicated solely to reading!

Here is how The Bibliotaphe Closet has grown:

Books for Review:

A special thank you to Random House of Canada for providing me with a number of books to review for May and June 2014:

  1. I want to read quite a few of these, including Summer House with Swimming Pool, Boy Snow Bird, Elizabeth Is Missing, and A Tale for the Time Being. The only one I’ve already read is Behind the Beautiful Forevers, which was great.
