Me on This Week's Book Week (85)

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 a new year. :) Which means new books to look forward to, and new reviews to write, and new authors to talk to when their debut comes out.

I'm slowly planning for this year's Canadian YA Lit Event. Yay! :) Which means it's time for you to list authors you'd like to see Q&A's with or guest posts from. Or reviews you'd like to see.

Because it's a new year, I've made a list of YA debuts I'll be keeping an eye out for this year (because I can't tell if anyone's hosting the Debut Author Challenge this year). At the moment, I only know of 5 YA debuts written by Canadians: The Story of Owen by E.K. Johnston, Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen, Boys Like You by Juliana Stone, Hexed by Michelle Krys, and Winterkill by Kate Boorman. Hopefully, I'll discover more over the next few months.

Reviews for the coming week will feature Shadowplay by Laura Lam (Tuesday) and Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau (Friday). :)
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor (finally purchased because I didn't have a copy and wanted the hardcover to match my hardcover of Days of Blood & Starlight)
Going Dark by Robison Wells (e-novella borrowed from the library)
Glitter & Doom Bethany Griffin  (e-novella borrowed from the library)
Valkyrie Symptoms by Ingrid Paulson  (e-novella borrowed from the library)
One Day More by Aprilynne Pike  (e-novella borrowed from the library)


  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is an amazing book. I love that book. Days of Blood and Starlight is pretty awesome as well.

    Books of Love

  2. Ooo, I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I have not read Days of Blood and Starlight yet, but only because I'm waiting for Dreams of Gods and Monsters to come out. Oh, the long, long wait...

    Have a fabulous weekend!
