I wish I had a lot to say about last week, but alas it was pretty average. Oh wait I accomplished some things! I finished a super long audiobook that’s been in my Audible queue forever AND I also finished Wings Of The Wicked which is over 500 pages. So yes, I feel like my week went on a pretty high note. Plus! Today I’m going to a signing for Libba Bray and Gwenda Bond with co-blogger Allison. Are you doing anything bookish this week?
Ash by James Herbert (Unsolicited) – Well, the cover is a bit cheesy, but the back blurbs have comparisons to Stephen King and so I think I’ll save this one for when I am snowed in because I do love to be creeped out when it’s cold outside.
17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma (Unsolicited) – Friends! This book is signed. I opened it up there was a little letter saying the book has been signed by the author and I’m like nahhhh, it’s probably a stamp. BUT IT IS REALLY AUTOGRAPHED! And I got a little too excited over that. Also I legitimately cannot wait to read 17 & Gone, I liked Imaginary Girls for the most part, so I’m curious about this one.
Pulse by Patrick Carman (Unsolicited) – AHHHH! I was glad for this book because I really enjoyed the previous 2 Patrick Carman books that I’ve read. ALSO. I have 2 other unread books by Patrick Carman in my house so perhaps I will have a mini author readathon soon.
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt (Netgalley) – You guys, I freakin loved Sean Griswold’s Head so when I saw this was on Netgalley there was no thought before clicking request. I am so excited and might make this my next bike read after I finish up The Different Girl.
White Horse by Alex Adams (Netgalley) – I am not entirely sure what this is about except that it’s compared to Justin Cronin and Stephen King thus my attention was instantly there.
Through A Glass Darkly by Karleen Koen (Kindle) – Pretty much I bought this because the book takes up so much shelf space real estate and I figure if it is safely on my Kindle, then I can put the big huge box in a box in the garage until we move and I can have the built in shelves of my dreams. Plus, this noise was only $2.99.
In case you skipped it or missed it, here’s a recap of what we’ve posted here last week:
Have money left over after buying presents? Check out these Kindle Books For Under $5.
It’s hard for me to convey how much I loved DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT but I made a valiant attempt.
Unfortunately, I was not entirely won over by USES FOR BOYS.
We’re 2 for 2 with CARNIVAL OF SOULS — Allison writes her review and turns out she loved it too!
Want a shiny ARC of Just One Day and a paperback of Where She Went? Check out our contest!
If you love reading about tragedy, you’ll probably love THE WATCH THAT ENDS THE NIGHT a unique verse book about the Titanic and the passengers aboard.
Allison makes a good life choice and reads THE AVIARY.
Remember that 28 hour audiobook? I reviewed it, A DISTANT MIRROR here.
In which I admit to loving cheesy Christmas romances and am fine with that in my review of CALL ME MRS. MIRACLE.
Finally, I got to be a guest blogger for Smugglivus, so check it out — I’ve recommend 5 awesome under the radar reads!
