Browsing Bookshelves: Lauren @ Northern Plunder

I have known Lauren aka Sizzle aka the owner of Books and Tea discord server since I joined it back in August last year and she has been such a huge help in my blogging journey and is just an all-round awesome gal.

She started doing this series on her own blog and I decided it might be fun to do and she agreed, you can see her post browsing my book shelves here.

Basically we swap pictures of our book shelves and go through picking out books we have read, would recommend, want to read e.t.c. So let’s get started!

Let me know in the comments any books from her shelves that you have read and loved!

Have Read and Recommend –
Vicious by V.E Schwab: was my first Schwab book I ever read and I loved it! Have yet to pick up the sequel but will hopefully get to it this year.
Shiver by Junji Ito: I know me and Lauren are both big fans of Junji Ito, the master of horror manga. I have yet to pick up Tomie and Uzumaki but have read his 3 short story collections.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I actually read this book because Lauren talked about it so much in BooksandTea and am glad I did, loved it.
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan: I think we both read this around the same time when it came out last year and both loved it, can’t wait for the sequel this year.

Want To Read –
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik: I was gifted this for our Xmas discord swap and still havn’t picked it up! 😦
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: Is on my physical TBR and will definitely be read this year.

Want To Read –
There are quite a few books here that I have on my physical TBR and want to read soon:

Hi Brienne I see you

Have Read and Recommend –

Love the Saga Funko Pops!

Have Read and Recommend –
Saga graphic novel series: I know both me and Lauren have read all 9 volumes and cried over it, everyone should read this series honestly.
Locke & Key graphic novel series: The first graphic novel series I actually read and it is one of my favourites, so good.

Want To Read –
The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson: I am actually currently reading the ARC and so far am loving it, it comes out in July! Check it out 🙂
Warcross by Marie Lu: One I’ve been debating on picking up for a while and probably will at some point.


Thanks to Lauren for agreeing to do this post with me! It was really fun! But I’d like to see more Japanese authors on your shelves 😉

Which books would you recommend?

  1. afj;dslkjasd;lfsda;kljafds; I’m SO jealous of the three copies (EACH) of TCP and TWK, I adored TCP and I’ve heard TWK is just as good … but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, maybe because I know then I’ll just have to wait for QoN 😅 also I will probably never be over how pretty the Raven cycle books are, I own the ebooks but I love the books so much and I want like 20 copies.

    I see lots and lots of books that I’ve heard good things about, but not a ton that I’ve actually read! hm. Spinning Silver and Caraval are great, as are Vicious & Vengeful & ADSOM. and Labyrinth Lost wasn’t my absolute favorite but it was pretty good too!
