Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 104

I really haven’t got much to say but apologies today, everyone. It has been such a crazy week, but I’m hoping things will be quieter this time around (hmmm…is there an echo in here?).

Despite my incredible failure to post anything or visit your blogs, I feel that I really should just start anew. So this week, I planned on being a good little blogger/reviewer that I haven’t really been and try to accomplish something. Prepare to be annoyed. Lol.

Last week, Simon & Schuster Canada sent me a couple of books for review. I cannot. Wait. I think I’ve seen Since You’ve Been Gone on so many WoW posts that I couldn’t help but feel the same way as y’all.

So much love for you, S & S. πŸ™‚

It’s been a slow couple of weeks. I’ve been really good. I think it’s because I don’t work near any bookstores anymore that I’m not able to do a lot of books shopping as I used to. Anyway, thank you all for sticking around.

Thanks for reading!

  • Since You've been Gone seems pretty good! I have been reading mixed reviews about Tsarina, but I hope ya enjoy πŸ™‚

  • These books are new to me (or well I have seen Tsarina around but other than that it's probably set in Russia I know nothing about it ~.~) but I hope you'll enjoy them. πŸ™‚

    Hm, I think I'll look up The Edge of Water. The cover catched my eyes and I like to read about “secrets” coming out πŸ˜‰

  • Thanks, Richa. πŸ˜‰

  • Thanks, Katie. πŸ™‚

  • right? it's really difficult not to judge, but oh well. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Dre. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Becca. I hope I will too. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Jas. I hope it'll be good. It's everywhere so now I'm wary. O.o

  • Definitely. I don't get them often, but it's really awesome when they notice I'm still alive. Lol.

  • LMAO!!! No kidding, eh? (the Canadian in me).

  • Mel! I haven't seen you around. πŸ™ And thank you. You are good for my heart. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Jen. I really hope so too. Thanks for visiting!

  • Thanks, Rachel. I've seen it everywhere as well. I really hope it lives up to my expectation. Whelp.

  • O.O Now I'm terrified…and morbidly curious. Lol.

  • Aren't they, though? And you are much too kind, Melliane. πŸ™‚

  • I think I saw this on your WoW post many moons ago. So when S & S offered it, I jumped at the chance. I hope it'll be good. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks! I will. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Adriana. I hope you'll get to read it soon.

  • I did at one point as well, Andrea. After a while, every single novels tend to blend in together. Lol.

  • Thanks, Lisa. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, Brandi. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks, K. xoxo

  • Thanks, Jeann. I hope I will too. πŸ™‚

  • I loved Infinite Sky! And that new cover of it is lovely πŸ™‚ I'm pretty excited for Since You've Been Gone, hope you enjoy it <3

  • Nice to see you back and these books are gorgeous!!

  • I know you should never judge a book by it's cover but all your new books this week are gorgeous! I've only heard of Since You've Been Gone but the rest sound interesting too. Happy reading πŸ™‚

    Kate @ Fictional Thoughts

  • Those book covers. Bookgasm! I love love the covers! Haven't seen any of these books before, but I'll be checking them out on Goodreads. Awesome hoard this week, Joy!

  • So jealous of those novels! I can't wait to read Morgan Matson's new read. Hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

  • Don't worry Joy, I totally understand life getting in the way, and that sucks that you don't work near any bookstores anymore, regardless this is still an epic haul. Like I mentioned on Instagram, I can't wait to read Since You've Been Gone, I agree everyone seems to be receiving a copy lately! Also I need to read my copy of The Waking Dark asap! Happy reading! πŸ™‚

  • <3 You are awesome. The books looks awesome; and I hope you will love them all :D Getting books from publishers is just awesome, isn't it? <3 I need to read my copy of Tsarina soonish. Probably. If I can get myself to read anything these days, lol :p But anyway. Happy reading Joy :)

  • Annoy away, girlie. πŸ˜› I bet the bookstores you frequented really feel the hit in their sales from you not buying as much. Now they might go out of business. Way to crush people's lives, Joy!

  • You are an amazing blogger, no one will ever be able to get put off with you. πŸ™‚ I love your hoarders editions! So many awesome books. Since you've been gone sounds awesome, I wish I could get it soon. Happy reading Joy πŸ™‚

  • After loving Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, I've practically been salivating for Since You've Been Gone. I hope it lives up to our expectations! Tsarina and The Waking Dark were just middling reads for me, but I know others who absolutely loved them. Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  • Aww, there's no need to feel bad! We all have times where it just doesn't happen. πŸ™‚ I've been seeing Since You've Been Gone absolutely everywhere, so I'll be interested to see what you think! I don't think I've heard of Infinite Sky, but I really like the cover, so I'll check it out. I hope you have a great week Joy! πŸ˜€

  • God, The Waking Dark was absolutely terrifying! In fact, my god friend who is a huge horror fan and even writes close to horror herself couldn't finish it. But I loved it! So different.
    Happy reading.

  • Oh they're all new to me but the covers are so beautiful! I want your reviews!!!! Happy reading!

  • Some weeks you just don't have time to post OR to visit. Don't feel bad! It happens. I cannot freaking wait to read Since You've Been Gone. I hope it is awesome. I have Tsarina checked out from the library, but just haven't been able to get to it. Hope you love all your new books!

  • S&S are awesome. Since You've Been Gone looks really good! Enjoy all your books πŸ™‚

  • Nice haul! Since YouΒ΄ve Been Gone is on my wishlist, Enjoy your books. πŸ™‚

  • Since You've Been Gone sounds so good – lucky! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on that one and Tsarina. I have a minor obsession with the Romanov family at that time, but I've heard that it doesn't deal with the family as much as the time period.

    Andrea @ Bookish

  • OMG!! I'm dying to read Since You've Been Gone. So jealous!! πŸ™‚ Enjoy your goodies!!

  • Infinite sounds good, and no apologies needed dear!

  • Having a quiet week bookwise is good, Joy! πŸ™‚ I have no doubt you'll get back to hoarding as soon as possible. I hope your workload gets lighter so, sweetheart x Beautiful books as usual, enjoy!

  • So many amazing books from S&S Joy, I hope you enjoy all of them! I haven't heard of most of these except for Tsarina.
