Week In Review

June 29 – July 5

Sadly, today marks the end of a mini-vacation for me. I had last Wednesday off for Canada Day, and then I took Thursday and Friday off, and therefore had a glorious 5 days off work. I’m sad at how quickly the time has flown by, as it always seems to when I’m not at work, but the next time I have a couple of days off, it will be when my husband and I move into our new condo next month! So that’s exciting.

I did a lot of reading while I was off work, and I also went to see Mad Max: Fury Road with my friend Ciara. That movie was incredible! Visually, it was stunning, but the story and the action and the female empowerment were all awesome and made the whole movie something really amazing. I want to see it again!

I borrowed a few books from friends and received a few ARCs, making this a very excellent book week:

Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo (e-ARC);

Ungodly, by Kendare Blake (e-ARC);

Tonight the Streets are Ours, by Leila Sales (e-ARC);

Firewalker, by Joesphine Angelini (ARC);

The Nightmare Charade, by Mindee Arnett (ARC);

Damage Done, by Amanda Panitch (borrowed ARC);

All the Truth That’s In Me, by Julie Berry (borrowed ARC);

Illuminae, by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (borrowed ARC); and

The Scorpion Rules, by Erin Bow (borrowed ARC).

Thank you to Raincoast for the e-ARCs and ARCs, and to my friends Meaghan and Ciara for lending me some books that I’m super excited to read!!

I have finished four books so far, and am hoping I can finish one more before the weekend is over:

Ruthless, by Carolyn Lee Adams (ARC);

Beastly Bones, by William Ritter (borrowed ARC);

Bellweather Rhapsody, by Kate Racculia; and

Damage Done.

Currently, I’m reading The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee, Enduring Armageddon by Brian Parker, and I’ve made some good progress on The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell.

On the blog this past week, I posted my reviews of Noggin by John Corey Whaley, and Survive the Night by Danielle Vega. I also talked about Supernatural episodes Devil’s Trap and In My Time of Dying.

Coming up this week are more Supernatural posts, of course, and reviews of Lynn Weingarten’s Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls and Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier.

Happy Sunday everyone! I’m off to drink some coffee and read!
