Week In Review

November 25 – December 1

This has been a really nice and relaxing weekend so far. I caught up on some shows (The Mandalorian and His Dark Materials), read some books, and played a lot of Pokemon Shield.

New books:

It was a pretty magnificent week for new books:

A big thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for these eARCs:

We Are the Wildcats, Siobhan Vivian;

The Honey-Don’t List, Christina Lauren;

Darling Rose Gold, Stephanie Wrobel; and

In Five Years, Rebecca Serle.

I also snagged some eARCs from Edelweiss:

The Unwilling, Kelly Braffet;

Sisters of Sword and Song, Rebecca Ross;

Seasons of the Storm, Elle Cosimano;

The Fascinators, Andrew Elipulos; and

Parachutes, Kelly Yang.

And of course the only Black Friday deals I was interested in were book related. I found some great deals, redeemed some Kobo points, and used a gift card to treat myself to a whole bunch of books:

Bunny, Mona Awad;

The Lady Rogue, Jenn Bennett;

Remedial Rocket Science, Susannah Nix;

Vermilion, Molly Tanzer;

Strange Practice, Vivian Shaw;

The Visitors, Catherine Burns;

The Past is Never, Tiffany Quay Tyson;

The Right Swipe, Alisha Rai;

We Hunt the Flame, Hafsah Faizal;

Supper Club, Lara Williams;

Nine Perfect Strangers, Liane Moriarty;

The Reunion, Guillaume Musso;

Wakenhyrst, Michelle Paver;

The Starless Sea, Erin Morgenstern; and

Greenwood, Michael Christie.

Phew! I think I have enough books to read for the next while.

And of course, on top of all of that, some more holds came in from the library:

Dead Girls, Abigail Tarttelin; and

Into the Crooked Place, Alexandra Christo.

Books read:

I managed to finish four books this week:

The Kiss Quotient, Helen Hoang (I DNFd this at the very beginning of the year, but decided to give it another try);

There Will Come a Darkness, Katy Rose Pool;

The Stranger In the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit, Michael Finkel (a rare non-fiction read for me); and

The Monster of Elendhaven, Jennifer Giesbrecht.

Current reads:

I am still reading an e-ARC of Francesca Zappia’s Now Entering Addamsville (it has taken me a while to get into it, but I was also trying to prioritize reading my library stack). I’ve also just started to read Dead Girls.

Posts and Reviews:

I posted my reviews of Wylding Hall by Elizabeth Hand, as well as The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary.

I also posted something new: Quick Lit (check out the other posts at Modern Mrs. Darcy), briefly discussing the books I read in October but didn’t fully review.

I hope to get a lot more reading and Pokemon in today! Happy Sunday!
