It saddens me that the last thing I posted on the blog was also a book haul. But what can I say? I’m currently struggling to write book reviews and there’s nothing I could do about it. I used to have discussion posts on the ready for when I’m running behind with book reviews but unfortunately, the creative well is currently dry. So yeah. As much as I want to post something else other than a book haul and an update, I got nothing. You can’t bleed a stone, you know what I mean? Sigh.
I got three books from Penguin Random House Canada that I thought I’d share with you all. I still haven’t bought any physical books as of late. It’s not for the lack of trying, mind you. On Saturday, I went to the bookstore and had three books on hand when I had an accident. I was trying to reach for a copy of A List of Cages when it fell on my face. Let’s just say there was a blood bath as I got a deep gash on my nose because of it. I’m so mad, y’all. I didn’t even have any intentions of going to the bookstore in the first place but hubby so sweetly nudged me to go. I think it’s the bookstore’s way of expressing their disappointment in me for being away for so long. So yeah. I didn’t buy anything this weekend again.

I’ve been meaning to read this since I got it. I’m a huge fan of books set in WWII so this fits the bill perfectly. It was very interesting. I was kept in constant suspense in a way that the fate/lives of the characters were always hanging in the balance.
I have enjoyed a few of Ms. Albert’s books so I had to request this one on NG as soon I saw it crop up on blogs. It was to be expected. I enjoyed it and will be looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
*Snorts* I had to get it. You know what’s weird? I didn’t notice the age difference between them. Ms. Hale didn’t really put that much focus on that aspect of their relationship so I wasn’t mortified as I was with the title. Lol.
This is it for me. I’ve got so much book reviews to write but I really don’t know where to begin. We still have another day off so here’s hoping I’ll be able to write or at least read.
Have a great week, everyone!
