Hello and happy Sunday. Is everyone enjoying the first week of summer? It's always warm where I live so it is sometimes hard to separate summer from all of the other seasons. I try to eat lots of ice cream to help me get in the summer mood. :) I had a pretty good week this week. Work was alright and I got myself a few books. I also get to see my family this weekend as my brother is taking his wife and kids to Disneyland. I am excited to see them all as I haven't seen the baby in a couple of months and had to miss her birthday party last weekend. But enough about me, you came here for books, so let's get to it.
eBooks for review
The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz - Thank you NG and the Harlequin auto-approved list. Super excited to read this one though I have to read my book club book before I can start this.
The Marquess Who Loved Me by Sara Ramsey - Requested this on a whim from NG and am glad that I did. A story of lovers reunited after 10 years and they're not very happy with each other. First time reading Ramsey but not my last.
Bought & Borrowed
The Wig in the Window by Kirsten Kittscher - This is a middle grade mystery. I went to the launch party for this earlier in the week and got a signed copy. You can read my recap here.
Paradigm by Helen Stringer - At the Wig book signing, I ran into Helen Stringer who is friends with some of my friends. Helen was kind enough to give me a copy of her new YA novel. It's sounds a bit dystopian/apolcalyptic. Unfortunately I can't find it on Goodreads yet but I have linked to Helen's author page.
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan - Snagged this at the library. I've heard that it's very good.
This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith - Another library score. I really enjoyed Smith's first novel and am looking forward to this one.
Last but not least is Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris. Yes, yes many of you will probably say that this series jumped the shark a while ago. I don't disagree but I have read every book in this series and I am going to see how it ends. Crossing fingers that I like it better than the last one.
That's my book haul this week. What's in your mailbox?
