I’m officially back from holidays for a week now though I’ve only been to work for a day. I had a scare the other night that involved my husband calling 911, and me riding shotgun in an ambulance. The combination of the lack of sleep and lack of sustenance did me in. Basically, I woke up at 2 in the morning on Wednesday and couldn’t get back to sleep. After an hour or two of reading, the world started spinning. I really thought there was an earthquake. Have you ever had a severe case of vertigo? I thought that was it for me. I couldn’t move my head left or right because my world tilts as soon as I’m jostled. Everything is fine now though I’m not so confident about driving. I’m scared I’ll have an episode and get into a car accident. So I’m going to get chauffeured for a week or so until we’re certain everything is really fine.

Remember when I slaughtered a virgin goat and offered it as a sacrifice to the ARC-giving goddess? 

While I was away on holidays, Random House Canada/Penguin Canada emailed me and asked me if I would like to review some books. Rhetorical question? Trick question? Of course I said hell yeah! They sent me four: Empire of Night; Everything, Everything; Blood on Snow, and Revenge of Kremlin. I love that they sent me two adult fictions and two YAs. I read Blood on Snow this weekend and loved it; I’m halfway through Everything and have enjoyed what I’ve read so far. So thank you, Random House of Canada for the books! And it totally works! Lol.

Also in the mail was a copy of The New Neighbor from Simon and Schuster Canada. I started reading this one until I realized it’s not out for publication till July. This, after reading 5 chapters! That’s how engrossed I was with the story.

This has been my haul this week. Any of these in your pile? Let me know what you got this week as well! Thanks for visiting while I was away. 🙂
