Menagerie by Rachel Vincent | Monsters: A Love Story | The Wine of Solitude by Irène Némirovsky | A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess | The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson | The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis
Did you have a great week? I had a very long one for some reason and considering it was only a four-day week, I swear, I didn’t think it was going to end. The kids officially went back to school. We have a grade 10 and a grade 4 in our midst. I can’t believe how fast they’re growing. *sniffs*
On Friday night, I attended a book club meeting with fellow Winnipeg book bloggers. It was our first get-together so we picked our initial book (This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab). It’s great to talk to other people about the same obsession we all have in common so I was excited to be a part of this book club. And of course, because the meeting was held at a bookstore, I couldn’t resist picking up a few.
If you’ll remember from my last Hoarders post, I mentioned downloading a copy of Menagerie by Rachel Vincent. Well, I ended up loving it so much that I had to get a physical copy. I was also coerced into getting a copy of The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. I remember why I was so against this book and it had to do with the supposed love triangle I’ve been reading from the reviews. They insisted that it wasn’t much of a love triangle, anyway so I might love it too so I decided to check it out. Crossing my fingers that I’ll enjoy this.
Read this week:
Cooper by Juliana Stone was a fast read – enjoyable but not remarkable. I’ve reviewed Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts last week and hope to write one for Menagerie soon. This book was so good, guys. If you haven’t read it, you should pick up a copy for yourself. It reminds me of The Others by Anne Bishop if the Human First League won. It was difficult to read at times but all in all, it was fantastic.
I hope you’ll have a great week ahead.
