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!)
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.
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!
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.
Time to get back to my books! Happy reading!
