Week In Review

March 30 – April 5

Happy Easter, everyone! I’m very grateful for my four-day long weekend right now. I let myself turn off my alarm and sleep in (which for me turned out to be 8 am) and just be a blob on Friday, but I want to spend the rest of the weekend reading, blogging, watching some baseball, and playing some Nintendo.

I am so sad that there’s no Walking Dead on TV tonight, but last week’s season finale was pretty awesome! Now I’m waiting for the spinoff to premiere sometime this summer, and for Rick and co. to return in October – which feels really far away right now!

I think I’m going to post my little blog project announcement later this week, depending on how productive I can be over the long weekend.

It was a pretty exciting book week! I’m super excited to have an e-ARC of Vengeance Road, by Erin Bowman! I’m really looking forward to reading this one! I also received an e-ARC of Killer Within, by S.E. Green, the sequel to Killer Instinct (Thank you HMH Books for Young Readers and Simon Pulse!).

It feels like all of my library holds come in all at the same time! This week I picked up a bunch of library books that I hope to get to before they’re due back:

Hellhole, by Gina Damico;

This Is How It Ends, by Jen Nadol;

The Young Elites, by Marie Lu (this is like the fifth time I’ve taken it out from the library so I’d better actually read it this time!);

I Was Here, by Gayle Forman; and

Dove Arising, by Karen Bao.

I also purchased two books: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, and Sanctum by Madeleine Roux.

I finished reading The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things, by Ann Aguirre, which I enjoyed. I also ended up DNF’ing Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge. I just wasn’t pulled in to it, but I gave it 100 pages before I gave up.

Currently, I’m reading an ARC of Skandal by Lindsey Smith, and I’m trying to decide which of my library books to start reading.

On the blog, I reviewed three books, all of which I enjoyed:

We All Looked Up, by Tommy Wallach;

Fangasm: Supernatural Fangirls, by Katherine Larsen and Lynn Zubernis; and

When, by Victoria Laurie.

Coming up this week are reviews of Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore, All the Rage by Courtney Summers (over on Ciara’s blog), and The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things.

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re all spending it with family and a good book! šŸ™‚
