Me on This Week's Book Week (21)

This Week's Book Week is like Stacking the Shelved hosted by Tynga's Reviews only named by me and not as cleverly. ;)

Hi. *snooze* Suffering from other round of e-galley burnout. More often than not it takes me days to read an e-galley, but a paper book I can read in a few hours. Sorry, digital world. My brain is still hardwired to only accept paper books.

The fall anime season started this week. Yay. :) *crickets* Well, this only matters to you if you like anime, and over the past 8 or 9 months, my TV watching has transitioned into anime streaming watching. But I'm sad. Out of 40 shows, there are 2 I really want to watch, 1 I happened across and found interesting, 2 I'm sort of interested in, and 1 with people chucking bombs at each other and lots of explosions. The sadder thing is that, while the list hasn't been finalized, Crunchyroll doesn't have 1 that I really want to watch and 1 that I'm sort of interested in. It's weird, in the summer there were about 9 or 10 shows I watched. There's something lacking in the fall season that confuses me. Hmmm.

Of course, I was pleased to find out that one of the shows I really wanted to watch is full of Shakespeare references. Book nerd win. ;)

Went to Word on the Street in Vancouver last weekend. More book nerd win. ;) I got my copy of Rage Within signed by Jeyn Roberts (they were giving away copies for free *gasp*), I bought a book I'd been meaning to get for a while now, and I hung out with Nicole who was author-stalking so she could get books signed. :)

Hope all the Canadian bloggers have a good Thanksgiving weekend. :) Mmmmm, pie.
Adaptation by Malinda Lo (it's so good, I previously read an e-galley and posted a review in September)
Way to Go by Tom Ryan (picked up at Word on the Street, yay for Canadian authors)
Destroy Me (e-book) by Tahereh Mafi (... oh, Tahereh, why are you so good??)
Kamisama Kiss Volumes 1, 2, and 3 by Julietta Suzuki (new manga, yay, also a new fall anime so reading along can be fun but not when each episode is a chapter or two)


  1. Eeeep!Judging from your comment after Destroy Me you've already read it. I am reading it right now and I am so glad that you enjoyed it. I am liking it a lot so far.

    The Adaptation cover looks like it would be amazing in person (must go read your review).

    I couldn't agree more. It takes me longer to read an e-galley than a regular book. There is just something about a physical book that appeals to me much more.

    Happy Thanksgiving weekend. I wish you lots of reading time in between yummy food.

  2. I am reading Destroy Me and its soo good!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. I have Adaptation on my TBR it sounds really creepy! Great haul!

  4. I so have Destroy Me on my TBR. Hoping to get to it soon. Great haul.


  5. I don't really watch anime but I have so many (IRL lol) friends that do so I've been hearing a lot about it, haha :) Hope you enjoy!

    DESTROY ME... destroyed me. Holy. Warner. My Warner. Like, I just have all these FEELINGS! Can we have Unravel me nownownow?

    Yay, glad that you had fun at WotS! :) I always mean to go but then forget about it until after it's too late. I'll have to check out Adaptation... I've heard awesome things about the author in general.

    Happy reading! Hope you had a fantastic long weekend as well <3
