Week In Review

September 2 – 22

I haven’t done one of these all month! Life and work got very busy but I managed to get a decent amount of reading in.

And even though this weekend is quite hot, I’m so happy that we are heading into my favourite season! I love when the leaves start to change and the temperature falls so that I can walk around in jeans and sweaters.

Another of my favourite things about this time of year is that I start really getting into spooky books and movies. I spent all day Saturday watching Marianne, which is a French eight-episode Netflix series and features some of the creepiest scenes I’ve watched. It was really good, and I’m definitely looking forward to a season two.

New books:

I received some ARCs via Edelweiss that I’m excited to read:

The Stars We Steal, Alexa Donne;

Be Not Far From Me, Mindy McGinnis; and

Yes No Maybe So, Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for eARCs of Winterwood by Shea Earnshaw, and Our Wayward Fate by Gloria Chao.

Thank you to Raincoast Books for the ARC of Sara Faring’s The Tenth Girl!

I also purchased a few books and ebooks this month:

Tunnel of Bones, Victoria Schwab;

This Is How You Lose the Time War, Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone;

Bringing Down the Duke, Evie Dunmore;
