Week In Review

May 28 – June 3


 Happy Sunday! It’s nice and sunny, and I’m looking forward to spending the day lounging with some books.

Yesterday I participated in Raincoast Books’ 2018 TeensRead 2018 fall YA preview. Raincoast always puts on fantastic preview events, and I end up hearing about so many upcoming books that sound fantastic and end up on my TBR! Two of the books mentioned that I am super excited about are Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer (monster parts on the black market!), and The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke (monsters and mercenary girls!)

New books:

Raincoast sent out packages with some swag and ARCs ahead of the preview event, and I was SO EXCITED to find an ARC of Courtney Summers’ Sadie in my bag! (Thank you Raincoast!)

Sadie is one of my most-anticipated books of the year, so I couldn’t wait and started reading it right away!

I purchased a few books for my Kobo as well:

The Dante Chamber, Matthew Pearl;

To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf; and

Borne, Jeff VanderMeer.

Books read:

I only finished one book this past week: What We See When We Read, by Peter Mendelsund. It was super interesting!

I did a quick count and I read ten books in May, so that’s pretty good. I’ve read 43 books this year so far and I’m a couple books ahead of schedule for my Goodreads goal. Yay!

Current reads:

I’m reading three books right now:

I started rereading Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian. I read this years ago, just before I started this blog, and I don’t remember much. I’m really loving it!

I’m also reading my ARC of Sadie, and The Amateurs by Liz Harmer.


On the blog this past week, I posted my review of Kara Thomas’ fantastic Little Monsters, and my sister’s review of Curses, Boiled Again by Shari Randall.


 Time to get back to my books! Happy reading!
