I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Last week went by pretty rapidly. Mostly because my team and I were preparing for the 5th grade Field Day. It was a success, and the kids had a blast! By the end of the day I was exhausted, and so I came home straight from work and crawled in the bed. Thus, I missed Yallwest’s Preview Night, for which I had tickets. No regrets! I was a dead woman walking, and needed the rest. However, things went better for me on Saturday when I went to the event. I bought The Rose & the Dagger and The Glittering Court. Now there’s no doubt what I’ll read next, as I’ve had an ARC of The Wrath & the Dawn sitting on my bookshelf for over a year. Time to bust it out!
Aside from buying books on my 2016 Must Have list, I also received a few freebies. OwlCrate gave me Da Vinci’s Tiger, First in Line let me grab And I Darken, I won Rook from Scholastic, and my most prized position was an ARC of Marissa Meyer’s Heartless that I received from Fierce Reads. Overall, it was a great day, and I really enjoyed the convention, especially the “Women of Marvel” panel. It was great to see so many women working for the comic giant, and to learn how much growth they’ve had in this area over the past 5 years, or so. Very inspiring!
