Week In Review

So it’s been months since I did one of these! My reading and blogging life was very quiet in that time, but I’m back in the swing of it now!

Lots of books / ARCs / e-ARCs have made their way into my house since my last Week in Review post, but I’m just going to talk about some of the more recent ones:

The Lost Girls, by Heather Young;

Good as Gone, by Amy Gentry; and

By Gaslight, Steven Price.

As for ARCs, there have been some really fabulous books sent my way lately!

As part of my swag pack from Raincoast Book’s for yesterday’s winter and spring 2017 Teens Read preview, I received an ARC of one of my most-anticipated reads, Caraval by Stephanie Garber. I definitely let out a happy, excited squeal when I saw this!

You’ll also see that a sampler (of the first four chapters) of Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom was included in the swag pack! I know this book comes out this month, but the waiting is agony right now! Six of Crows was one of my absolute favourite books I read last year, and this sequel (and final in the duology) is going to move right to the top of my TBR when my pre-order arrives!


I also received ARCs of The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon, and Vassa in the Night, by Sarah Porter. These are two books that I’m very very excited about!

For e-ARCs, I received:

A Season of Daring Greatly, by Ellen Emerson White;

Silver Stars, by Michael Grant (the sequel to Front Lines, which I LOVED);

Radio Silence, by Alice Oseman;

The Women in the Walls, by Amy Lukavics (YES YA horror is my jam); and

Something in Between, by Melissa de la Cruz.

Thank you to Raincoast, Penguin Randomhouse Canada, Harper, and Harlequin Teen!!
