In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)
Monday and Tuesday this past week were full of rain, then Wednesday was bright and sunny and it sort of felt like April (except for the cold breeze). Weird. But there's been a lot of weird weather over the past year. Last summer was so mild it was like spring from March to October, then it got a bit cooler, then it snowed for only a week in January. Climate change, people. We haz it. (According to my sis, and I think I'll trust her and her honours degree in environmental science.)
Have been contacting authors about Canadian YA lit blog event in May. This is your last chance to suggest an author I haven't thought of yet. :)
Still watching anime on Crunchyroll. I've discovered two detective-type ones with magic-type stuff (one historical like Gosick, one more present-day/futuristic) and an alternative history one with half-fox spirit girls. I'm starting to wonder if all the anime I've watched is affecting my dreams, sometimes I don't think I'm dreaming in English. Well, every so often I think about the French translations of some words, but that's cause I took it in school for 8 years.
I rather like it when pub contacts send mass e-mails to their reviewer lists saying what ARCs are available as opposed to e-mailing them and asking. It gives you a better idea of what's available. So, when Raincoast sent out their blogger newsletter during the week, I was rather excited. If you're a Canadian book blogger and you're not on Raincoast's list, you're missing out.
Thumped by Megan McCafferty (from HarperCollins Canada) (Turns out this was sent to me by accident. Apparently, there's more than one Lindsay in Canada on HC's list who's a book blogger. Who'd've thunk it? ;) Because I haven't read the first one, I'm torn on whether or not I'll read it. It might end up in the giveaway pile.)
The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova (e-galley from Raincoast (Sourcebooks) through NetGalley)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (e-galley from Macmillan through Raincoast) (I saw the cover reveal on Friday, rather dark and mysterious.)
This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (e-galley from Macmillan through Raincoast) (I totally freaked when I saw this in the newsletter from Raincoast. So excited.)
