It’s one of those weeks when nothing really happened in my droll life. Though, I must admit that it’s a good thing. I don’t think my poor heart can handle all the excitement of riding in an ambulance and playing a crash test dummy for fun. Anyway, all is well.
This week, I got one copy for review from the fantastic people over at Random House Canada. I started reading The Fearless by Emma Pass, and I must say, I’m intrigued by this band of soldiers wreaking havoc in all the land. Let’s see how intense this is going to be, but so far, I’m so into it.
I mentioned in my review of Revenge of the Kremlin how much I enjoyed what I’ve read of Malko Linge so far. So much so that I bought the only other two that’s been translated in English. I was so excited when I found them at my bookstore! I can’t wait to dive into these books.
I managed to keep in touch with the lot of you, and posted some reviews this week. I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself. *beams* Considering how insane work had been, I’m pumped that I was able to write something coherent before my brain turned to soup. Goodness knows, work has been known to do that to me.
Oh man. I bought Irresistible because the cover attracted me so. As I was reading up on the reviews on Goodreads, I soon realized the error of my ways as the book feature two of my most hated character flaws: doormat girl meets douchebag boy. Sigh. Wish me luck.
E-books. Yes. I do buy and request them from time to time.
I read Beautiful Secret on the day of its release. I enjoyed it enough, but not as much as I did its predecessors. I requested copies of Some Kind of Normal and Every Last Word from NetGalley. Thanks so much to Sourcebooks Fire and Disney-Hyperion for these copies!
So that’s the kind of week it’s been. How was yours?
