How fast is this year going?! I can’t believe its February already! I’ve finally managed to get out and about without 1) freezing my butt off, or 2) almost falling on my butt thanks to lovely ice everywhere. It makes a nice change! I don’t expect it to last long, but it's nice to see the sun for a little while!
In bookish news…
Did you see it, did you see it, did you see it?!
END OF DAYS has a cover!
What do you think of it?
Entertainment Weekly hosted the cover reveal for End of Days yesterday, and I love it! I’m so glad all three books will have matching covers! I love the gold, too. I was expecting red as that was the place-holder cover on Goodreads… but anyway, I cannot WAIT to read End of Days :D It’s one of my six most anticipated releases of 2015, and I need more Penryn and Raffe in my life!
What I Read This Week
It took most of the week to get through it – yeah, I’m not the fastest reader in the world, unfortunately – but I finally finished Gone, and really enjoyed it. I wish I'd read the series sooner though, it's really good!
I'm currently reading Melt, and oh WOW, it’s an intense read! I finished Part 1 before I began writing this post, and I love it so far. I love the distinct differences in POV between Josh and Dorothy, and I love the way the formatting is done. I have this horrible feeling something bad is going to happen, though! I don’t want anything bad to happen! I just want to do two things: a) reach into the pages and give Josh a hug, and b) ELIMINATE HIS FATHER! I haven't really figured out Dorothy yet, but she seems really calm and collected, certainly in comparison with Josh. It'll be interesting to see what happens!
Books I Bought
I’ve been really good at not buying books lately! I bought a couple of Kindles, but I haven’t bought any physical books since October last year, with the exception of pre-ordering Ensnared back in November… so I had a pretty good idea this day would arrive sooner rather than later... I went a bit mad on Amazon and The Book Depository.
These are the only arrivals so far:
I cannot WAIT to read Say Her Name! I’ve been looking for a really creepy/scary book for a long time and nothing I’ve read has fully fit the bill and actually been… scary! But! Bloody Mary? Yes, now that should be scary :D
This is a picture of the synopsis on the back cover…
Mwahahaha! It sounds super creepy, and I can’t WAIT to read it!
Books For Review
Firstly, HUGE thank you to each publisher for these beauties!
Cleo by Lucy Coats – Cleopatra? The Cleopatra, Cleopatra? As a teenager?? Yep, I’ve gotta read it!
The Infinite by Lori M. Lee – I bought Gates of Thread and Stone last weekend, but it hasn’t arrived yet. When I saw book two on Netgally, I jumped at the chance to read it!
I think we’ve all requested a book where we didn’t think we stood a chance to get it. I know I have, this was one of those instances, actually! I saw Bloomsbury UK add a certain book to NG a little while ago, and I took a chance and requested it. I knew there was no chance on this EARTH that I’d ever get accepted, and I was a zillion percent positive I’d get a rejection email.
You can imagine my shock and excitement when I logged into Netgalley and I saw this beauty sitting there.
*Hyperventilates* I’m really failing to compute! I wasn’t expecting this… I don’t even know… I can’t even… AAAHHHHHHH!!! Thank you SO MUCH Bloomsbury!!
