Fresh on the Shelf - January 2019 Book Releases + Book Giveaway


Happy New Year, Cupcakes!

How was everyone's winter holiday?

I celebrated Christmas with family but, sadly, rang in the New Year with a sprained ankle (not fun!)
Luckily, I had plenty of books to keep me company, and had fun doing some binge reading. My binge read included The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan, The Wicked King by Holly Black, and Kakuriyo (vol.1) by Midori Yuma. Additionally, this Christmas I received a plethora of manga and books, both romance and young adult, and can't wait to binge read those, as well!

During December I did plenty of movie watching (ahem...AQUAMAN!) and sight-seeing. Below, is a video I edited and shared on Instagram of an incredible light display at someone's home in Toronto. Dubbed the "Desario House", they annually decorate their home in epic light displays and ask for visitors to offer a donation to the Sick Kid's Foundation. This was my first year seeing their light display.
