This week was pretty eventful.
– Second week of year 12, and my goodness, it shows.
– I went to my first book event, #BTCYA (hosted by HarperCollins) – met some awesome people and had a fantastic time.
– It’s also WINTER again, in terms of weather. It was snowing in the Blue Mountains, right near where I live…snow doesn’t often happen in Australia, but when it DOES, it’s in the weirdest time. This time last year there were bushfires, and now snow. Crazy. There were also thunderstorms and I drove in the rain for the first time and…
Why am I talking about the weather?
Let’s just go to Stacking the Shelves.
Stacking the Shelves is a book meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
Nona and Me by Clare Atkins – I won this thanks to the awesome Cait @ Notebook Sisters and Black Inc Books. Cait’s random generator thingy really does love me – I’ve won two things from her this year!
Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas – the wonderful Sarah Epps had a spare copy of this and sent it to me! Because she is AWESOME. I then proceeded to read it VORACIOUSLY. My review will be up soon.
The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty – I own the first book in this series but haven’t read it yet. I traded this one with Eugenia @ Genie in a Book.
The Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim – another trade with Eugenia! This one looks like a lot of fun
Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant – my final trade with Eugenia – Cait gave this one a fantastic review and I seriously need to read it. Like right now.
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente – the second book in the series, this looks like SO MUCH FUN. I traded this with Gina @ Behind the Pages.
The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valente – the THIRD book in the series, another trade. I can’t wait to give these two a go!
Corruption by Jessica Shirvington – I bought this at BTCYA because…well, I couldn’t NOT BUY IT. And it’s so shiiiiiiiny. *strokes book*
Books Read Since Last Week
Wow, have I had a fantastic reading week. All three of these were four-stars. Reviews coming soon 🙂
Dune and Fahrenheit 451 are both for school – I’ve read Fahrenheit 451 before and absolutely loved it, so I’m enjoying it again. As for Pandora, I didn’t particularly like the first one, but hopefully this one is better.
This one looks so exciting!!
