Not even gonna make excuses......it would do not good. However, I do have an observation. Have you ever noticed that books come in groups? Seems whenever I request some books at the library, they all arrive within a week of each other which adds a lot of weight to my TBR and results in multiple trips to said library where I usually end up browsing the new releases and find even more books screaming to come home with me. And can we discuss Netgalley? What's up with requesting books and then for months you hear nothing, so you think, OK, didn't get approved, so you venture over and request a few more, and then the back requests pour in. Am I the only one experiencing these dilemmas?
Anyways, here is my massive library haul. However, as long as no one else requests them, I can keep them 9 weeks and then an additional 2 before any fines come do. See, I know how the system works.
I grabbed "Bliss" totally on impulse because Shay Mitchell helped write it and I really enjoy her on "Pretty Little Liars." But it has really mixed reviews so who knows. I also want to give "A Court of Mist and Fury" a chance even though the last book was disappointing until I reached the last third. I have heard this is better and hey, if I don't get to it, it's HUGE so it will make a nice doorstop in the meantime. I can't wait to get to "Night Shift" and by the way, does anyone know if this is the last in this series?
For review I received the following:
At least some of these don't come out until later this summer or early fall. I had to grab "Braineater Jones" after seeing it on another blog. And come on, who can resist the cover on "Weregirl."
So, it was a productive 2 weeks on the book front. I also bought some books (big surprise), found some great Kindle freebies, and won a giveaway, but I will save that for next week.
So what did you add to your shelves this week?
