AFTER by Anna Todd | ETTA and OTTO and RUSSELL and JAMES by Emma Hooper | VIENNA NOCTURNE by Vivien Shotwell | THE WHITE RUSSIAN by Vanora Bennett | THE STRANGE LIBRARY by Haruki Murakami


Hello, all.

I just can’t seem to resist buying books. Gah. I read a lot this week, though. But I’m not planning on adding anything new to my current reads. The good thing about this self-imposed reading marathon is that I’m making some headway on my TBR. I’m also way ahead of my blogging schedule. At the moment, I’m booked up until the end of January – which is a rarity!

This week, I got one book for review from Simon & Schuster Canada. To be honest, I’m having second thoughts about agreeing to review this book. AFTER by Anna Todd is not a good book. I don’t like the characters and the theme it tackles. Basically, you can let a guy play with your emotions because LOVE. Which is a total bullshit. I know what I like, and I can already tell that  I have a very low tolerance for Tessa’s and Hardin’s characterizations. But I’m going to remain hopeful that I can find some redeeming qualities about them.  And who knows? Maybe I’ll get addicted to this series? Maybe this book will be the start of a twisted relationship? And maybe, Christian Louboutin will finally invent a pair of six-inch-stiletto heels that feels as comfortable as fuzzy slippers.

WINNERS!

*throws confetti*

  1. $20 Amazon Gift Card was won by Brooke. She responded and I think she’s already collected her winnings.
  2. $20 Amazon Gift Card was won by Glass. She’s collected her winnings as well.
  3. Two books of choice from TBD  was won by Pat. She chose Murder in Death’s Door by Elizabeth Rose and Bake, Battle & Roll by Leighann Dobbs.
  4. THE MOTHER LOAD was won by Jessica! She’s already responded, and is probably anxiously waiting for these books. They’ll be on their way come Monday,  Jessica. Looking for a box big enough for all these goodies. Eeeeeeep.

That’s been my week. How was yours?
