add it to the list [18]

add it to the list is brought to you by In My Mailbox, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

this week, i share with you the bookish goodies i scored over the past 7 days. since i'm too lazy to shower (see reason why at the end of the post), you get some photo action.


first up, Tom Angleberger responded to my original request for a drawing of M'Lady Luggertuck by sending me yet another personalized drawing of my favorite scowly lady. he was even so kind as to include a Darth Paper illustration, too! seriously, Tom is the tops. if you haven't already checked out his books, you totally should! 


and next, i received Abe in Arms by Pegi Deitz Shea. this was part of the Nerds Heart YA Tournament, and although it didn't move on to the next round, it's definitely a book that's off of the beaten path. if you want a more in depth review, be sure to check out Rebecca's blog! thanks to Rebecca for sending me her copy.


and finally, i received a paperback copy of Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey from Little, Brown. i've heard great things about this book, but wasn't a fan of the original cover. this cover, however, is totally baller and i love reading a book with an award label on it. also, it's been getting shout out's from YALSA which is nothing to scoff at. 

it was all about quality, not quantity this week for me. rumor has it the next week might be poppin, so i'm pretty stoked about that jazz.

thanks for checking out what i added to my list this week! i apologize for not doing a vlog...but i didn't feel like showering because i was spending time with one of my favorite people...


Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. Is that a Gandalf hamster? If so, that is beyond BALLER!

    And holy moly that cover of Guardian Of The Dead is excellent, I may have to order the paperback just to have that on the shelf.
