Me on This Week's Book Week (87)

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. ;)

So. This year's been ok so far. Not terrific but not terrible. As I type this up it's rather foggy outside. It makes the whole day a bit spooky.

I had an awesome reading burst this week when I got through a book a day and wrote up the review for it. It was awesome. Now I'm all caught up on reviews for the rest of the month, there'll be 2 next week and 3 the week after (1 of those 3 will be about Cress, which was awesome). And then some more regular 2 a week weeks. Do you like the current schedule I have set up, reviews on Tuesdays and Fridays? I've considered moving Tuesday reviews to Monday and taking part in Top Ten Tuesdays more often.

I finished Call the Midwife this week. So good. BBC dramas might be the reason why I don't watch American or Canadian primetime shows, or TV at all. The only things I watch on TV seem to be sports (hockey or tennis or curling right now), the news at lunch, and Doctor Who (when it comes back in the late summer?). Sometimes other shows, like Bitten or Masterpiece Mystery on PBS, but that's it. TV is losing me as a viewer.

Reviews for the coming week will feature Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd (Tuesday) and Secret by Brigid Kemmerer (Friday). :)
Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam (from HarperCollins Canada)
Replica by Jenna Black (borrowed from the library) (now I won't be lost when I read my ARC of Resistance in March)


  1. Awesome haul. I got Replicia in my TBR pile. Nice haul of books. Come check out my stack as well.

  2. YAY I loved Elusion! I just posted a review on my blog a few weeks ago. It's a really great science fiction novel! And the romance is sort of sweet and adorable :) I have not read anything by Jenna Black, but I really hope you enjoy that series! :)

    Check out my STS post!

  3. Nice haul. They're both newer to me.
    How's Rise treating you? It's been on my shelf for a while now.

  4. Elusion looks interesting. The cover reminds me Lisa Frank stickers. I mostly watch hockey on TV, too. I do watch some series when the full seasons come out on DVD. Happy reading!

  5. I'm so jealous that you snagged Elusion! I hope it's as good as it sounds! My STS

  6. Oh gosh, these covers are the best! I have a serious cover-love-crush on Elusion. I hope you enjoy it! My StS!

  7. Jealous that you got an ARC of Resistance, I read both Replica and Resistance as e-galleys. Both are good!

  8. Great haul! Elusion looks really great, I should hurry up and read that one. I hope you enjoy your books! My STS :)

  9. I love when weeks go well and you're productive. Makes you feel good. I haven't heard of either of those books. Looks like I'm in the minority from the previous comments haha Check out My STS if you have time!
