Week In Review

September 25 – October 1



It’s the beginning of my favourite time of year! Autumn, cooler weather, Thanksgiving, favourite TV shows coming back (Supernatural; The Walking Dead), Halloween, and then the lead up to Christmas! And today is my wedding anniversary, so it’s been a lovely weekend of celebrating with a fancy dinner and buying a new coffee maker!


New books:

It’s also been a pretty exciting book week!

I received a copy of Tom Hanks’ Uncommon Type from Penguin Random House Canada (thank you!), a collection of short stories.

From Raincoast Books, I received these ARCs as part of their Teens Read Fall Preview swag pack:

A Girl Like That, Tanaz Bhathena; and

Bound to You, Alyssa Brandon.

The Raincoast previews are always great, and this one was full of upcoming books that sound so good!! The ones I think I’m the most excited about are:

Zombie Abbey, Lauren Baratz-Logsted (zombies and Downton Abbey!);

Furyborn, Claire Legrand (the first in a new fantasy trilogy); and

Brightly Burning, Alexa Donne (Jane Eyre in space!).

I also picked up my pre-order of Stephanie Perkins’ There’s Someone Inside Your House, which I immediately read (and loved).

Books read:

I finished two books this week:

Genuine Fraud, E. Lockhart; and

There’s Someone Inside Your House.

Current reads:

What Happened, Hillary Clinton;

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling; and

A Line in the Dark, Malinda Lo.


I posted two reviews this week:

A Stranger in the House, Shari Lapena; and

Wonder Woman: Warbringer, Leigh Bardugo.

I also wrote a little bit about some of the books on my fall TBR. This time of year always puts me in the mood for darker, creepier stories.

Time to see if I can get a bit more reading done before the weekend is over! Happy reading!
