Me on This Week's Book Week (216)

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. ;)

Hello all! It was sunny and warm this week, so much so that I got a sunburn when walking around with my sister and her goofy dog. Fun! Do sunburns make anyone else feel tight and groggy? I felt terrible the first day after, so tired and stuffed up and wanting to sleep so much.

I've totally fallen into the pit that is Pokémon GO. I played Pokémon Gold and Crystal so much when I was a teen, I loved the collecting aspect and the wandering around, so I'm liking it so far. I'm not totally sold on the gym and the battling parts, though. I waited for the game to actually be released here in Canada before playing, which means I'm behind those who played early and levelled up and captured the gyms, but we'll see how it goes in the weeks to come. It's possible that people will stop playing as the summer goes on and into the fall, once the novelty wears off. As I like collecting things, I figure I'll be playing for a while. At least until I get certain ones like all the Eevee possibilities and the starters and so on.

Reviews going up this coming week will feature The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray (Tuesday) and Two Summers by Aimee Friedman (Friday). :)
The Stone Heart by Faith Erin Hicks (e-galley from First Second through NetGalley)
Exile for Dreamers by Kathleen Baldwin (borrowed from the library)


  1. Oooo, I have Exile for Dreamers as well! I haven't read book one though, so I may binge-read the series at some point. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week, Lindsey. :)

    Check out my STS post!

  2. I hope your sunburn gets better. Enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. I am playing Pokemon Go with my teen daughter! I haven't been able to do much lately, but I find it to be really fun. I get mad that so many people my age are ridiculing it. Have fun with your new books.
