Hey, everyone! This STS post is going to be a little different for me. I got called into work with no notice today, so I wasn't able to film a vlog and my preparations to get hit by the Frankenstorm has left me no time to take pictures, so I'm sorry for the weird format of this post! But yeah, I had an awesome week, so let's begin...

Every month I meet up with the amazing Nicole and Kristan because Nicole lives just ten minutes away from me and Kristan is an hour from us. We do huge book swaps because we can always give them back and it saves us some money. So, I want to thank them for giving me the awesome week! Check out this haul:

Temporary Swap:

Mystic City by Theo Lawrence

What did YOU add to your shelves this week?

I'm a 18 year old from a small town in New Jersey that's a newcomer to the book blogging world. Because I am an incoming senior in high school the closest thing that I have to a job is being a volunteer at the town library, so I spend most of my time reading and persuading my parents to let me buy more books!
