As you can tell from this week’s pile, I haven’t done much but acquire more books than I can read in this lifetime. But most of these were birthday presents from a couple of weeks ago so I think I’m allowed. Ha. I won an ARC of the latest Tiffany Reisz from Olivia of Olivia’s Catastrophe blog (thanks, hun!) and I got three books for review: one from Penguin Random House Canada and two from Simon & Schuster Canada (much love!).
So grateful to everyone who wished me – however belatedly on my birthday! I’m doing my 2-3 posts a week thing on the blog so if you’re wondering where I’ve been, that’s my excuse. I’ve been reading a lot during my disappearance so that’s good. But I’m stuck on romance after a bunch of non-fiction from January.
Freebies From Hell
Last week, iBooks had an email out about some free romance series starters. I should’ve known that they’re only setting a trap for me. Those bastards can read me like the back of their hands. They know that I wouldn’t be able to resist reading the rest of the books in the series. So yeah, damn you, iBooks!
I guess you can say that I read a lot this week because I read the Dirty trilogy from Meghan March and read all the books from Songs of Submission from CD Reiss. I’m working on Barefoot with a Bodyguard at the moment but haven’t started Virtuous and Fair Game. It’s only a matter of time, I tell ya. My Kindle and iBooks are full of romance novels right now.
The Bane of My Existence aka, Net Galley
Feel free to call me out on my bullshit. I pretend to be mad at Net Galley when in reality, I’m so happy to get these books! Lol. I’m especially looking forward to reading Royal Bastards! It’s one of my most anticipated reads this year. I’m sure there are more books available for request since the last time I checked but I’m not going there until I read all of what I have so far. That’s just asking for trouble.
I’ll try to be more present this week. I have some time to read and catch up on what I’ve missed since we have Family Day on Monday (long weekend), so yay! I’d planned on not doing anything else but read.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone! Thanks for sticking around. 😀
