Book Haul, or the One with the Red, White and Books
Still waiting on the missing mystery package (le sob) BUT a very exciting package is coming for me on Tuesday and I am literally counting down the hours (and damn near close to counting down the seconds because EEEE IT'S COMING). But I bought myself some loverly reads this week:
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
High fantasy + lots of diversity = auto-buy
On the Fence by Kasie West (my review)
ALL THE CYOOTS.
The gooooorgeous new paperbacks of the Old Kingdom trilogy, Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen by Garth Nix. Lirael in particular is absolutely beautiful. I loved this series as a kid and so thrilled to reread them before the prequel, Clariel, releases in October. Doesn't Garth Nix totally sound like he himself could be a fantasy character himself with that name?
I reviewed Magnolia by Kristi Cook, which I absolutely adored, and On the Fence by Kasie West, which was cuter than puppies.
I announced that I get to be a part of the #ReadISLA promotion team, which basically means I get to yell about Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins a whole bunch.
I listed my top ten favorite classic novels.
Looking Forward: July in which I showcase my most anticipated July releases.
Last week's weecap highlights since I keep forgetting:
Reasons to Read: Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard
Review: The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Review: Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson
Bustle quoted my "review" of Rebels: City of Indra by Kendall and Kylie Jenner, which is pretty cool and also kind of hilariously strange. They called it gif-tastic, which it was, but I now kiiinda regret calling Simon & Schuster "Satan".
Oh, and 'Merica had a BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, 'MERICA. (Now act your age.)
Happy holiday weekend to my fellow Americans, and happy regular weekend to all the rest!
