Me on This Week's Book Week (54)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

It's June and it feels weird because it really doesn't feel like it should be June. Especially since it was raining so much this week.

This week a guest post I wrote for HarperCollins Canada's YA site/group/fun people @HCCFrenzy went up on the site during the week-long celebration of Hilary T. Smith's Wild Awake. They asked if I'd write a post on reading a book set where you live, as the book is set in Vancouver. And so I wrote something on reading a book set where you live. You can read it here. :)

Hopefully, this is my last plague finger update. It looks about the same, no better or no worse than when the PICC line came out. If it's not swollen or leaking gross fluid or exploding, there's nothing else they're going to do. And there's my free healthcare at work. I get it, it's not doing anything strange and there's nothing wrong with the rest of me, what else is there to do? Still. I didn't think I'd have to go through life with a weird finger. My next plan is to see how it goes as the nail grows out, wait a few weeks.

There's a special post going up on Monday (June 3rd)! I'm the first stop for Random House Canada's blog tour for Amy McCulloch's debut YA fantasy/adventure The Oathbreaker's Shadow. :) Other stops will be at Confessions of a Reading Addict, More Than Just Magic, Cozy Up with a Good Read, and Retreat by Random House. :)

So many e-galleys this week. It's like the internet version of BEA. I hope everyone who was at BEA had tons of fun. One day I'll go. *wistful sigh* ;)

Reviews this week will feature The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy McCulloch (Tuesday) and Linked by Imogen Howson (Friday). :)

  1. *high five* to my fellow Oathbreaker tour host! Looking forward to your post.

  2. YAY for Tumble & Fall and All Our Yesterdays! I love the cover for All Our Yesterdays, and I'm curious about Tumble & Fall! Might have to go request those! And I hope you enjoy the latest Richelle Mead novel! I haven't read anything by her. Yet? :D

    Check out my STS post!

  3. I am so jealous of Tumble & fall since I missed the chance to request it, I think and it's one of my most anticipated reads! I got All Our Yesterdays as well, though i have the UK cover (which I kind of like but I prefer your US one!)!

    Enjoy your books :D

  4. Great haul! I'm excited for All Our Yesterdays and The Bone Season. Enjoy your new books. Happy reading!

  5. The Bone Season sounds like a really good debut!

  6. I agree about it not seeming about June because of all the rain - we had so much rain counties around me were having mandatory evacuations due to river flooding. Love the cover for All Our Yesterdays, and happy reading!
