This week has mostly just been me working. I can tell I am back at work and also blogging again, my reading it taking a massive hit because of it. Although, to be fair, I am already seven books ahead on my reading goal. That was thanks to having the first week of January off work. Christmas stole all my money as I have so many people to buy for, that has meant 0 money in January to buy any books. That is most definitely a good thing as my seven bookshelves are full and my floor is covered in books I need to find space for!
This week I have reread the first two books in the Half Bad series and am just about to finish Half Wild.... IT IS AMAZING!!! My shipper heart is going to die of happiness. And now I am even more excited for whatever Sally Green does next.
The haul this week is the other half of the huge eARC haul that I got in the last month. It is massive and the books are all so awesome and I just want all the time so I can get to them all. Why do I have to be a grown up, and work, and pay bills?!? Boooooo!
Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto, The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan, Take the Fall by Emily Hainsworth, Thicker Than Water by Kelly Stultz and The Word for Yes by Claire Needel
Revenge and the Wild sounds like a really great Western, mixed with magic and fantasy! I APPROVE. The Leaving Season is a contemporary that will probably make me cry. Take the Fall is a murder mystery, which can sometimes be really awful... but occasionally surprise me. Thicker Than Water sounds super interesting, girl accused of killing her own brother. The Word for Yes looks like it might be an intense read, I hope this one is done well.
Love Blind by Christa Jesir and Jolene Perry, The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder, The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin, Ascending the Boneyard by C.G. Watson and How to Disappear by Ann Redisch Stampler,
Love Blind sounds like another interesting contemporary. I can't seem to get enough of contemporaries, I just want to read them all. So that is why I have a few more contemporaries here. Ascending the Boneyard sounds really good, but in a great way!
The Girl Who Fell by Shannon M. Parker, Shades of Darkness by A.R. Kahler, Strike by Delilah S. Dawson, Three Truths and a Lie by Brent Hartinger and 26 Kisses by Anna Michels
The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith, Escaping Perfect by Emma Harrison, Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman, Essential Maps for the Lost by Deb Caletti and Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan
The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine, Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers, The Mystery of Hollow Places by Rebecca Podos, Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan and Dreamology by Lucy Keating
The Shadow Queen, Assassin's Heart and Reign of Shadows are three books that I am really excited for!!! Ahhhhh, I can't wait to get to these.
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig, Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima, The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins, A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro and Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie
I am very excited for so many of these books. I have 30 just in this post, 40 in last weeks. That is 70 books, that is almost a years worth of reading for me. HOW DO I GET TO THEM ALL!?!? And if I have to choose between them, how will I even start. A Study in Charlotte is one I am desperate to get to. It looks AWESOME!
