Me on This Week's Book Week (133)

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. ;)

Our tree went up this week so it's getting closer to Christmas.

The Raincoast Teens Read Spring Preview was fun, it was nice seeing local YA bloggers and booksellers again, and the Raincoast publicity girls. It's nice that Raincoast is local, it lessens the blow when I hear about fun events that publicists in Toronto have set up. And it sounds like the Google Hangout video was a good idea for those non-local bloggers. (Take note, publishers.)

I'm back from dog-sitting. It was fun and everything went smoothly, but I could tell after a while that Koda got tired of me not being his family. Which I understood.

I've been debating whether or not to do a top books of 2014 post, I might do it on Tumblr instead, just post a bunch of covers because there are some books I've really enjoyed that I don't have finished copies of yet.

Reviews going up this week will feature This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner (Tuesday) and Chorus by Emma Trevayne (Friday). :)
The Truth About Us by Janet Gurtler (ARC from Raincoast Books' Teens Read Spring Preview)
Sweet by Emmy Laybourne (ARC from Raincoast Books' Teens Read Spring Preview)
Earthling by Aisha Franz (from Nafiza over at The Book Wars)
Also from Raincoast's preview event are some buttons, a small-ish poster of Fairest, and a Chronicle Books tote.


  1. All of your books look like nice reads. Plus they are new to me.

  2. The Truth About Us has me intrigued. Also curious about Sweet. Enjoy! Happy Holidays & Happy Reading!

  3. Oh I just love putting the tree up. I usually do this Thanksgiving weekend, but this year everything is so out of order. Thanks for sharing your book haul.
