Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 199


The People In The Trees by Hanya Yanagihara | First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen | The Only Child by Andrew Pyper


Hello!

I’ve managed to stay away from the bookstore this past weekend so I don’t have too many to share with y’all. This is good, though. Gives my wallet a break! LOL. I’d like to thank Simon & Schuster Canada for my review copy of The Only Child. Looks to be another good one from the author of The Damned. Excited to read this!

I started First Frost last weekend, but I got sidetracked by other books. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far and I’m looking forward to continuing. The People in the Trees looks interesting and hopefully less angst-ridden than her other book (A Little Life). I saw these books at the bargain bin two weeks ago and couldn’t resist.

FEED MY READER

Undecided was on sale for like, $1.52 on Amazon so I downloaded it. The Girl Who Shot First was free the last time I checked. Oryx and Crake was on sale on Audible; Pretty Face was a request from Net Galley.

READ THIS WEEK

I’ve had a great reading week.

The Burning World completely eviscerated everything that was cute and fluffy about Warm Bodies. I swear to you, this world and story line got a makeover from hell. And it was fucking awesome!

Undecided was exactly what y’all have gushed about since it came out. It’s so good. I can’t believe I waited until it went on sale before downloading a copy. I’m definitely getting a physical copy. 

The Bastard Billionaire was good, too! It makes me want to read the rest of the books in the series. 

Under Rose-Tainted Skies Gah. My heart. Love, love this book to pieces. Norah’s plight was so heartbreaking. 

Illuminae Gosh darn, y’all. Had I known how freaking awesome this book is, I would’ve started long ago! Can’t wait to read Gemina. 

So yeah. This has been an amazing reading week. Hopefully, I’ll be able to continue this streak. What about you? How was your week?
