I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because I want to get back to my book! I hope my Canadian friends had a fantastic Canada Day last weekend (I took a couple of extra days off work for a very long long weekend, and went to Toronto for the Canada Day Toronto Blue Jays game – had a great time even though the Jays lost) and that my American friends had a great Fourth of July.

Books received:

Lots of great books! I went back to work after my extra long weekend to find two books from Penguin Random House Canada waiting for me (big thank you!!):

What to Say Next, Julie Buxbaum;Now I Rise, Kiersten White.

I also pre-ordered The Merciless III by Danielle Vega and was delighted that it showed up last week in the mail, a few days early:

My picture does not accurately capture how pretty and sparkly the cover is. I love this series, and I am really excited to read this book!

 

 

 

 

 

And I won a Goodreads giveaway (my second time! I used to say I never win anything but clearly that is no longer true) for S. K. Ali’s Saints and Misfits, which I have heard is excellent. Definitely looking forward to reading this one!

Books read:

Since my last WIR post, I’ve read five books:

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman;

Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book, Jomny Sun;

Warcross, Marie Lu;

Lumberjanes, Vol. 6: Sink or Swim, Shannon Watters et al.; and

The Last Neanderthal, Claire Cameron.

I DNF’d Roar by Cora Carmack around 51%. I just wasn’t interested in anything that was going on.

Current reads:

I started Kiersten White’s And I Darken yesterday and I am loving it! I want to read more right now!

Reviews:

With the long weekend and being out of town, I only posted one review this past week:

Magpie Murders, Anthony Horowitz.

Ok! Time to get back to And I Darken and some coffee! Happy Sunday everyone!
