I feel like it has been forever since I have posted an STS post, but I haven't been getting very many books now that I am in college. However, I got legitimately the surprise of a lifetime this week. College has been an adjustment, and it's not the easiest thing to transition into. Gillian at Writer of Wrongs is my go-to for anything and everything. She's stayed up with me until 4:30 am and has shared in all my ups and downs thus far. And, when I hit a particularly rocky patch, she made my day ten times better. And, in all honesty, I can't live without this girl.


She gifted me the surprise of a bookish lifetime...

The Harry Potter boxed set with all the new covers. Look at that! I've never owned my own HP series, and now I do. Not only that, the spines create Hogwarts! And the books are so soft! I can't even help myself. This is seriously the best birthday gift/Christmas gift/pick-me-up I could have ever asked for.

Thank you, Christy, for this lovely trade!


All in all, I'd say this was the most amazing bookish week ever for me. I can't even explain my excitement over that boxed set. I hope everyone else had as great of a week as I did!


Don't forget to link me to your STS posts!

  2. That's a great gift, it looks really pretty with all the books together like that. I love seeing the different covers for HP from around the world.
    And I know what you mean about college being an adjustment - my freshman year sucked, but it picked up a lot the following year, and now I'm a senior and getting nervous about going out into the 'real world'. ;)

  5. Wow! That is a fantastic friend!! I love and also I'm so in awe of our community and how, though we have our ups and downs, we support each other, and we are there for each other, oftentimes just as much as an IRL friend or family member. It's so awesome!

  7. That's so awesome. I don't own a HP set either. I think I have one hardcover sans the cover that I picked up at a library sale. I hope you start adjusting to college soon.

  9. Oh, Lili, you are so FREAKING lucky!!!!! I would absolutely dance around the living room if I got a gift like that!!! I LOVE Harry Potter!!!! I had no idea there were new covers now! I'm off to investigate further, so I can put this set on my Christmas wish list! (I have to be EXTRA nice to hubby....lol.)

  11. I can't wait to re-read HP and read HOURGLASS for the first time.

  12. Of course! Seeing the different covers is something that always intrigues me. My freshman year has sucked thus far, no questions asked. It's making me wonder if my school is the place for me. It's adding unnecessary stress and drama to my life.

  16. I own the first book, but I obviously don't need it anymore. My Dad has a set of all the books in his bookcase, but now I've got one officially for myself! hahahah

  17. I cried a little bit when I opened it, if you want the truth. It was a necessary pick me up. They're new illustrations in a limited edition paperback boxed set. (:

    And haha, you're welcome!

    College is hard in the beginning, but once you get into the rhythm, you'll be fine, you'll probably even get some time to read just for fun again! don't despair :)

    It's my first participation in Stacking the Shelves, I hope I've done everything right!

  29. What a wonderful week you've had, Lili! Followed by the long Columbus Day weekend. Hope you're able to squeeze in a little bit of recreational reading. Enjoy!

  30. That Harry Potter is seriously cool! I have all the books in hard cover, but that does tempt me to pick up the new editions. The covers are beutiful and I had no idea that would all make Hogwart's shelved together. That is really an awesome gift!
