Me on This Week's Book Week (117)

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. ;)

Hi! After all the sun and the rain and the weird humid stuff, the weather was very average this week.

I saw someone tweet about how they had a lot of September ARCs and e-galleys to get through, that there were a lot of September releases. Does anyone else have that? With me it seems to be October, especially October 14th releases. I think it's up to 5 or 6 now. Which means there'll be 2 3 review weeks in October. I should really get reading.

I imagine lots of people will be seeing the If I Stay movie this weekend. I haven't read the books, you guys know me and my occasional relationship with contemporary. It sounds like it's a pretty good adaptation, which is good. I'm all for good book-to-movie adaptations.

Reviews going up next week will feature Girl Defective by Simmone Howell (Tuesday) and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (Friday). :)
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (bought)
The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma (e-galley from Algonquin Young Readers) (It's my first 2015 ARC/e-galley! I feel like a time traveler.)
Battling Boy by Paul Pope (borrowed from library)
The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook (borrowed from library)
Year of Mistaken Discoveries by Eileen Cook (borrowed from library)

  1. I have a bit September ones but like you I think I have more October. Though I don't have many arcs anyway lol The Almost Truth looks good. I'm going to have to add. Nice haul this week!
