For my birthday (which was last month), I pre-ordered Dreams of Gods & Monsters. Oh, was it worth the wait! I didn't realize that Chapters was doing an "Indigo Exclusive" so my copy came with a signed drawing of Karou in the back! And I needed to add another $8 or so to my order to get free shipping, so I added the paperback release of Dark Triumph, even though I haven't yet read Grave Mercy. I just have a feeling that I'm going to like the series!
I signed up for Epic Recs a while back and, even though I haven't posted about it on the blog, I've been paired with a fellow new mom who's an avid reader! We've bonded over Goodreads messages, but she doesn't have a blog. Last summer, I had a major case of the blogging blahs and one of the things that's helped is allowing myself to read and enjoy books without forcing myself to review them. My Epic Recs books have been just that. I've only read one book so far, and it was a hit, but I just picked up Tamara's lastest recommendation, The Husband's Secret, from the library. I'm not sure that I'll have time to get to Roomies and The Sea of Tranquility before they're due back (all three are short loans -- grrr!) but I'll try!
I have no new e-galleys in the last month! I'm getting caught up on what I already have for review and trying to read all my summer books so that I can see if there are any fall releases that I'm interested in reading! I'm hopelessly behind on watching Epic Reads' Tea Time since I had to focus all my attention on getting my schoolwork finished, but I'm hoping to get caught up on the missed episodes in the next week or so. It's through Tea Time that I find out which e-galleys I might be interested in downloading!
BUT, Random House sent me a list of their April releases and I chose The Here and Now (which I've heard mixed reviews about already, but at least it's short!) and All My Puny Sorrows (I LOVED A Complicated Kindness when I read it years ago). I can't wait to read both of these!
What about you? What's new on your shelves lately? Leave me a comment below!
