Me on This Week's Book Week (55)

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 looking more and more like summer. I might have to go shopping. And not for books. And it's shaping up to be an e-galley heavy late summer for my to-read list.

So, how far in advance do you guys read books? Right now I'm reading the books I have scheduled to review in June. Afterwards, I'm going to try and read most of the remaining ALA ARCs I have. There are still about 20 that I haven't gotten around to yet. I'm kind of surprised, those books have made up most of my reading for the past 4 months. I can only imagine what it would be like if I went to BEA.

I've got an empty box. I'm going to stick a bunch of ARCs in it and give it away soon. I wasn't sure what to put in the box but I think I've got it all figured out, it's spread out a bit in terms of genre. Keep an eye out for a giveaway post in the next week or so. (I'm a little concerned about how much shipping could cost, though. It might end up being Canada & US only.)

Reviews going up this week will feature Rush by Eve Silver (Tuesday) and The Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher (Friday). :)
Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl by Emily Pohl-Weary (from Penguin Canada)
Vicious by V.E. (Victoria) Schwab (from Raincoast Books) (so so so excited to read this)
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake (e-galley from Macmillan through Raincoast Books)
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (e-galley from Macmillan through Raincoast Books)
Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau (e-galley from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt through Edelweiss) (finally, an Edelweiss approval, and it's for a book out in early January, so it'll be a while until I get around to reading this)
