Rewind & Review (44)

Rewind and review

Blog Posts You Might Have Missed

Interestingly, my two reviews this week featured a win and a fail in world-building. How symmetrical. Also this week, Cover Love went old school, I confess an envy problem, and we talk bucket lists.

 

Stuff I Received

  • The Zoo at the Edge of the World by Eric Kahn Gale (from HarperCollins vis Edelweiss)
  • In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis (from HarperCollins via Edelweiss)
  • This Is How It Ends by Jen Nadol (from Simon & Schuster via Edelweiss)

Thanks this week to HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster!

Books I Read

  • Meridian by Josin McQuein – Started this one last week and finished it this week. Review to come but O_O
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – Eep!
  • The Cute Girl Network by M.K. Reed and Greg Means – my first “real” graphic novel!
  • Nil by Lynne Matson – Literally just started this one, so no opinion yet.

No audiobooks this week, and I allowed myself a break from the schedule to read more Harry Potter. Look for a Blogging Unicorn recap on Friday!

Happenings

  • My cousin had a baby! Little princess Cosette now has baby sister Juliette Ilsa to build a snowman with.
  • I donated two bags of ARCs to a local high school. It’s SO nice to get them out of the house, and I can’t wait to hear how the kids like them.

    I have not heard of The Zoo at the Edge of the World before, but it looks interesting! You’ve never read a graphic novel before? Did you like that one? I love GN’s, but I haven’t read that one yet! Have a wonderful week! 🙂

      The illustrations were really cute, but it had too much language and scatological humor for my taste.

    Yay for A Handful of Dust! I requested it, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
