Yes, I know it’s Monday and this post is a day late. I had it all ready to go and then realized I had a prior commitment that I put down in my spreadsheet for the wrong date and I hate posting twice in one day so I just had to flip flop yesterdays and todays posts.
I’ve been failing at read the past two weeks so yay! Life has just been incredibly busy with my son’s birthday and the party I planned for him and also the annual toy drive my family runs for the Children’s Hospital that takes care of my son just ended and it completely takes over every aspect of my life.
So here’s a look at the books I tried to read from the last Sunday Stacks and what is on my TBR for this week.
I actually tried so hard to get through The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen and I just couldn’t do it. It took me a couple of hours to get only two or three chapters into and I honestly had no clue what any of the words were meaning. I felt guilty DNFing it since I had a review copy, but not every book is for every reader, and that’s okay. Fantasy is a genre I want to like so badly, but just really isn’t for me.
I’m actually a little over halfway through She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller right now! If I would just sit down and read it without getting distracted by everything under the sun I would be able to finish it fairly quickly. It’s a really fast read but I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it overall yet. I think I like it? But it’s super repetitive and doesn’t seem like it has enough forward motion story line happening if that makes any sense. We’ll see how it wraps up at the end and hopefully I’ll have a full review for you on Thursday.
I crammed Remember Me by Chelsea Bobulski in and got it read in just a few short hours because I got my posting date for the blog tour mixed up. This is one I was looking forward to and had a feeling I would enjoy but it completely exceeded my expectations! Definitely one of the best young adult horror novels I’ve ever read. The characters were wonderful, there was a really great story line, and it was definitely creepy. Make sure you read my full review!
I was supposed to only be reading only ARCs this month but I got a gift card for my birthday and finally got my hands on a copy of The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth. This is one I’ve been wanting to read for several years now and seeing Arin from Tomes of Our Lives talk about it constantly has made me even more excited. I know I won’t be able to focus on any other books knowing this is waiting for me on my shelf so I’m making an exception to my ARC only August rule.
Sonia Hartl’s debut, Have a Little Faith in Me, is one of my most anticipated releases this year! I’m so glad it’s finally coming up on my schedule of things to read. The blog tour is happening in just a few weeks and I was privileged enough to interview Hartl which was a little bit of a dream come true. I’ll also have a review for you soon!
What are you hoping to read this week? Let me know in the comments and let’s chat!
