Hi, kids! Hope you're all having a nice, relaxing weekend. I thought it was going to be a light book week but I ended up going to the library and buying a few eBooks. I also went to the Summer Lovin' Tour featuring authors Jenny Han, Morgan Matson and Jessi Kirby and ended up buying a bunch of books there. I also strayed a bit into Netgalley even though I am on a NG diet. But I was good and only requested one book that I really wanted.
Did y'all see The Avengers last weekend? I did and it was so much fun. Exactly what I wanted in a summer movie. And Jeremy Renner - yes, please! Now, onto the books!
Insurgent by Veronica Roth - I was surprised to get Insurgent because I was sure there would be a huge waitlist but it came in. I have one other book to read before I can start this one.
Remembrance by Michelle Madow - I see this one online all the time and was curious about it.
Hourglass by Myra McIntyre - How awesome is this cover? Another one that I see in blogland a lot but never got around to. It was available for Kindle on my library's Overdrive so I picked it up.
Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris - This one I borrowed from my friend K who borrowed it from the library. I am on the waitlist for a copy but she got one first. I am going to try to get to it this weekend so I can give it back to her.
The Summer I Turned Pretty, It's Not Summer Without You, and We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han - Like I said, I went to the Summer Lovin' Tour and could not resist these pretty paperbacks. I haven't read any of this series yet and think I might make it my fun summer read.
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - Another Summer Lovin' purchase. I am a big fan of road trips so I thought I'd read about one.
The Summons (A Goblin Prince Prequel) by Shona Husk - This prequel to Husk's Goblin Prince series was free on Kindle this week. I haven't read The Goblin Prince but do want to so I picked this up.
Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper - This one was free on Kindle as well. Honestly, I've been seeing it in the blogosphere and, while I enjoy mermaids, the cover turned me off. It's so awkward looking. It made me think of maybe doing a new feature on the blog where I talk about covers that I don't like.
Improper Relations by Juliana Ross - I read a good review of this by Stella and decided to buy it. It's less than $3 on Kindle right now.
Lethal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #3) by Larissa Ione - Thank you NetGalley for this one. I am a big fan of Larissa Ione and, even though I didn't love the last Lords book, I am really looking forward to seeing what happens in this installment.
That's it for me. Sorry I didn't link my books to Goodreads this week. I am way too tired to look up the links right now. I hope you all have a great weekend. And, because I can, I leave you with some eye candy for the weekend. TTYL!
