Week In Review
May 4 – 10
Woah summer has arrived! We kind of skipped spring and have jumped right up to the too-warm-for-me temperatures. And of course our air conditioner died yesterday! We had to go out and buy a new window unit, because even though we’re moving in the fall to a new condo with central air, we could not survive the Ottawa summers in this hot little apartment without an air conditioner. So that kind of sucked.
I know I said in last week’s Week in Review post that I was going to the Ottawa Blogger Meet Up, but I never really got around to recapping it. It was lots of fun, of course, and it was great hearing author Holly Bodger talk about her book, 5 to 1 (and we all got a copy).
We were spoiled with a bunch of great books! My gift bag included:
Silent Alarm, by Jennifer Banash;
All We Have Is Now, by Lisa Schroeder;
The Porcupine of Truth, by Bill Konigsberg;
Vanished, by E.E. Cooper;
Boo, by Neil Smith;
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between, by Jennifer E. Smith;
I Am Princess X, by Cherie Priest;
The Pocket Wife, by Susan Crawford;
I Want It That Way, by Ann Aguirre;
Powerless, by Tera Lynn Childs and Tracy Deebs;
The Creeping, by Alexandra Sirowy; and
The Dead House, by Dawn Kurtagich.
Phew! That was quite the haul! Huge thanks to the Ottawa bloggers who organized the whole event, and to the publishers.
I also received a couple of e-ARCs from Edelweiss this week:
And I couldn’t resist buying A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas (e-book).
I don’t think I finished reading any books this week! Oops!
I’m off to try and read today, celebrate Mother’s Day, and celebrate my husband’s birthday! Happy Sunday!
