Me on This Week's Book Week (162)

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. ;)

*reforms from a melted person puddle* It was hazy this past week, all the smoke in the air from the forest fires up north, which meant it was cooler than it was the week before. Then the rain came Friday morning! It was awesome. It's just been so hot and dry for too long.

I've seen a bunch of awesome stuff come out of SDCC the last couple of days. I don't know that I've ever go, though. So many people! I feel like I'd be spending my days in long lines or rooms full of people and wouldn't pay attention to the awesome TV and movie and book and comic and game things. Just lots of standing and waiting and elbow-jockeying and body-checking and trudging back to a hotel nowhere near the convention centre. But props to those who go and are willing to brave the crowds. As much as I'm not sure about going, I do hope that everyone who went had a great time. Also yay for Star Wars things! ;) Kid me is all over these upcoming books and the new movie.

No reviews next week! I need a bit of time to catch up and read as I've fallen behind due to a good chunk of my day being spent in my new job of puppy wrangler. But there will be reviews the week of the 20th. :)
Bought/borrowed/received:
The Accident Season by Mo├»ra Fowley-Doyle (ARC from Penguin Random House Canada)
Miles and the Monster Outside by Philippa Dowding (ARC from Dundurn Press, along with some awesome things like bookmarks, a tote bag, a t-shirt, and a mug.)
