I love how last week I was SO excited that my busy week was over, but then this week proved very busy as well — I won’t go into details but will just say that I managed to have a ton of presentations. Regardless, I am optimistic about this upcoming week — I have an out of office trip – about an hour both ways, so YAY reading time. And of course, a few more presentations. I’ve not been doing TOO awesome with my goodreads challenge, currently I am 3 books behind. However, I’m about to finish my audiobook (The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick), so that should help a tiny bit. I am not entirely loving my Kindle/egalley read – Gameboard Of The Gods by Richelle Mead. I can’t seem to find a rhythm with that one or really be into it. OH! And I started my first book from my TO READ BEFORE BEA LIST! YAY! And for this curious about my book haul, here ya go:
From Edelweiss and Netgalley:
When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney – AHHHHH, I am so so so excited for this. A few of my contemporary loving peeps have read this one and loved it.
Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff – I just really love Zadoff’s YA work and will gobble up anything he writes.
Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang – I absolutely love American Born Chinese so, when I saw Yang had 2 companion graphic novels up on Netgalley, I immediately grabbed them because I know that I will hopefully enjoy them.
What My Mother Doesn’t Know by Sonya Sones (Kindle) – This was a Kindle Daily Deal and I honestly can’t resist YA contemporary verse books ever. Or sales.
Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith (Kindle) – This has been on my wish list forever, and so now that it is down to $1.99, I had to have it. Also? I just love some epic fantasy.
The Shattered Mountain by Rae Carson (Kindle) – I know people like to talk shit about novellas, but honestly, as someone who is a super fan of Carson, I am going to fucking buy anything she writes and that includes novellas. And you know, if novellas help authors make the money they need so they can focus on writing books and not getting a second job, bully for them.
Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reeves (Kindle) – This is currently on sale for $1.99. I thought I’d buy it because I’ve gotten the sequel twice in the mail and honestly, I’d like to read both.
Variant by Robison Wells (Kindle) – This is on sale for $1.99. I have an ARC and haven’t read it yet, so when I saw the sale price I was like, oh snap I can toss the ARC into my donate pile. I also am very interested in reading this book, but also interested in reclaiming more house space.
To Give Out:
Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life by James Patterson – This is the book I am giving for World Book Night. I cannot wait! Seriously, cannot wait. Alas, my box is in my care still and Tony has driven it to work today in order to get my oil change done. So, no picture just yet.
In case you skipped it or missed it, here’s a recap of what we’ve posted this week:
- I review Beautiful Bastard and admit I don’t curr what anyone says to me about guilty pleasure reading.
- Basically I just love griffins and middle grade books and The Menagerie.
- There’s a reason book bloggers are head over heels for Golden by Jessi Kirby.
- Of Goals & BEA 2.0
- The hype is dead on, balls accurate for The 5th Wave.
- I am not as impressed by The Second Empress.
