February 2 – 8
This was not my best week. I ended up at home sick with a bug for a couple of days, which was frustrating. I hate being sick and whatever I had hit me hard: I was exhausted, had stomach problems, and a headache that would not go away, among other troubles. Fortunately, I think I’m starting to come out of it.
I initially wrote this without remembering that The Walking Dead comes back tonight – I don’t know how I could have forgotten about that! I chalk it up to being sick. I am so excited for the show tonight, to see what happens next in the wake of the midseason finale, which made me so sad! I love this show so much.
Anyway, on to books. It was an excellent book week because I received an e-galley of Victoria Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic (thanks Raincoast!!). Her book Vicious is one of my favourite books and when I heard about ADSoM, I was so so so excited. I am definitely going to be buying a finished copy for my bookshelves. I’ve already started reading and am loving it!
I also received The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy from Edelweiss (thank you Simon & Schuster!). This sounds twisty and creepy – my kind of book!
I finished a bunch of books last week – look for these reviews in the next couple of weeks:
The Troop by Nick Cutter;
Geek Girl (Geek Girl #1) by Holly Smale;
Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver (one of my most anticipated books, and it did not disappoint!); and
Winterkill by Kate A. Boorman.
Currently I’m reading A Darker Shade of Magic. I’ve just started and can’t wait to really settle down and get into it!
Coming up this week are my reviews of Forget Me, by K.A. Harrington, and The Troop.
I hope I’m really truly over whatever bug I had, because I want to spend today painting my nails and reading, watching AMC’s Walking Dead marathon all day, then the new episode tonight! I might also check out the Better Call Saul premiere – anyone else planning to watch?
