Note: I won’t be posting my usual Monday look forward/back because that is mostly covered in by July wrap-up post.
It was another good book week! Probably too good :-).
In the mail:
My Forbidden Desire by Carolyn Jewel was a win from a giveaway from Kristi at Books and Needlepoint. I don’t know much about paranormal romance, but the more I read about it, the more intrigued I am. This looks like a good one!
Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton is another paranormal romance, this one for a blog tour. I’m not sure if this sounds more like urban fantasy or paranormal romance or if I even know the difference. I love the cover on this one, and I’m looking forward to reading it later this month.
Luv Ya Bunches by Lauren Myracle was sent by Abrams publishing through Shelf Awareness for review. It looks like a fun book aimed at middle school aged kids. I need to read it, then hand it over to my daughter to get her opinion.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick caught my eye when I first saw it on Shelf Awareness due to its striking cover illustration. I read the description and was very interested. When it started appearing around the blogging community, I shrugged and figured I’d buy it when it came out– I do understand that I’m still pretty small by publisher standards. I was thrilled to get it in my mailbox this week!
Bundle of Trouble by Diana Orgain came from the author via Twitter. I love the premise, and have to admit that the idea of becoming a PI occurred to me when my daughter was young and I was a stay at home mom (as I still am). I didn’t even start to follow through! I’m looking forward to reading how it works out for the character in this book.
These two books were Costco impulse purchases, and show why the book section in Costco is so dangerous!
I’d been waffling back and forth as to whether to read Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout for Twitter Book Club next week. When I saw it at Costco, I saw this as a sign, and grabbed it. I got home and realized that I have a much better chance of finding time if I download it from the library and listen to it.
When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn must have jumped in my cart when I wasn’t looking. Why else would I have picked up a book 6 of a series I haven’t read before? Seriously, the cover description caught my attention for reasons I can’t describe. I do enjoy this genre, and it’s been a while– maybe that is all the explanation I need!
