I've been travelling a lot lately and so this is my first chance to put together a post for Stacking the Shelves. I've been quite spoiled lately so I hope you don't think me greedy. =) Without further ado, here's what I've acquired in the past month. Tynga was kind enough to pass along some of her old books to me and she gave me a book I'm quite excited about, TIMELESS by Alexandra Monir!

Jenn

Born and raised in the Toronto area, Jenn moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, eight years ago for school. She's still in school (thankfully on another degree!), now trapped in her dissertation. When she's not dissertating, which happens more often than it should, Jenn spends her time reading, watching movies, playing volleyball, travelling, and enjoying the local music scene. Her latest addictions: yoga and Almond Crunch cereal.
