In Which There Were No Books

This is a bit sad.

Last week, I made the grave mistake of telling my husband that if I ever get the urge to go to the bookstore, I gave him the permission to pull me back. Ever since then, his favourite word is, “no”.

He’s no fun these days.

So instead of my regular Hoarders post, today, I’m just going to give you guys an update of what I’ve been up to this past week.



The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black took me out of my misery. The Dinner by Herman Koch had me wondering what gave me to urge to read it in the first place. Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan left me thinking, “what the hell is your point?”

 What to read, what to read.

10576365Well, I’ve started on my winter reading list last week, and am currently working on the second book of the five: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I don’t know how I ended up with a paperback, a hardback, and an iBook copies of this book, but there you have it. No excuses why this book shouldn’t take any precedence over all my books.


Next week on the blog:

Reviews for the following books:

  • The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black
  • Afterlife of Stars by Joseph Kertes
  • The Dinner by Herman Koch
  • Throwback Thursday: TBD. I haven’t decided what to feature for my classics review. I’m thinking about reading Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews, but I’m not sure yet.

The book that will end my eight day book buying ban:

22078240 For the first time ever, Saga’s first 18 issues will be released in hardcover! You guise. You don’t know how much this makes me happy! Even though I own the 18 issues already, I’m still super, super stoked that I will be able to hold them in my greedy little hands! Gimme, gimme, gimme! Rest assured, I will be at the bookstore come Tuesday duking it out with my fellow nerds. Ha.

So that has been my week.

I hope yours has been relatively…better than mine. Because a week without going to the bookstore is bleak, y’all. I have the shakes.
