Week In Review

September 26 – October 2

Hello! Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. My husband and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary yesterday! Time flies!

As for books, this was a big week! First off, it was like Christmas came early on Edelweiss, courtesy of Harper! I snagged a bunch of e-ARCs that I’m so excited to read:

Replica, by Lauren Oliver (SO EXCITED); and

The Thousandth Floor, by Katharine McGee.

What Light, by Jay Asher;

The Witches of New York, by Ami McKay; and

The Trespasser, by Tana French.

I also bought myself a few goodies this week! After book club, I picked up two Alison Cherry books:img_20160928_214807.jpg

For Real; and

Look Both Ways.

I’ve never read any of her books so I’m excited to check these out! They both sound great!

This is definitely one of those weeks where I am overwhelmed by how much I love books and reading, and by how lucky I am to get to read some fabulous books early!

I finished reading two books this past week: A Darkly Beating Heart, by Lindsay Smith, and Wilde Lake, by Laura Lippman.

Currently, I’m reading Crooked Kingdom, Replica, and Last Seen Leaving, by Caleb Roehrig.

I posted two reviews on the blog this week: Mostly Void, Partially Stars, by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, and As I Descended, by Robin Talley.

Coming up this week are reviews of The Women In the Walls, by Amy Lukavics (YA horror!) and The Female of the Species, by Mindy McGinnis (soooo good).

That’s it for me! Time to get back to my books. Happy reading!

    Such a good book haul this week!
    I chose 4 from Edelweiss, I love when they add a ton of books 🙂 I’m also hoping to get Crooked Kingdom and read it soon, I need to know what happens next.
    Have a good week and enjoy all your new books!
