This week's Stacking the Shelves is the American Lit II Edition. All of the books featured I will be reading in my American lit class next semester, and I'm not going to lie the list is a little daunting (since it also contains two books I already own and an anthology), especially because I have four other classes this semester- two of which are literature classes- so this semester will be interesting to say the least.
What I Bought For School:
Tracks, Louise Erdich
Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
Uncle Tom's Children. Richard Wright
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain-- Gorgeous Penguin Deluxe Classic Edition.
Just For Fun:
Chopsticks, Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral-- a book told through photographs and illustrations- not words.
Born Wicked, Jessica Spotswood-- First in a YA trilogy about a teen witch living in a Salem-esque town.
Jackaby, William Ritter-- I have been wanting to read this since it was released, and I scooped it up when I saw it on a good deal on Nook. I love this cover. so if I love this book, I may have to buy a hard-copy too!
What Happened This Week:
This week was a little crazier than I thought it would be. I did a lot of visiting with family and my best friend stayed with me for the week so I didn't have a lot of time to read or post, but I'm hoping to spend the last one and a half weeks of break getting some reading and posting done!
Thursday-- I took an accidental break for New Year's Eve.
And you can read last week's wrap up here.
What's Happening Next:
Honestly? I have no clue- hopefully a review of For Darkness Shows the Stars and another installment of my Literary Look Series, as well as a couple fun posts. I'm hoping to get some posts done and scheduled for the first two or so weeks of school in mid-January so I won't have to worry about them, so that will hopefully happen this week and next week too.
