Weekly Recap

I haven’t had very great internet access this past week so I didn’t post very much but I did have Lori Goldstein stop by the blog to guest post and I posted the newest addition to my Etsy Obsessions series featuring Throne of Glass  merchandise!

I’d say I had a pretty good week.  Any suggestions about what I should read first?

The Patrick Ness books are completely gorgeous, you guys. I’m currently hosting a giveaway for a set so you should probably go enter if you haven’t already. I’ve never read anything by Patrick Ness so I’m pretty eager to check out More Than This and the Chaos Walking trilogy. Also, Belzhar looks amazing! I’m really excited to be part of a fun campaign that Penguin is putting together for this book. If you don’t follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you should do that because that’s where I’ll be posting most of the stuff to do with Belzhar!

I couldn’t resist requesting My True Love Gave To Me. It’s edited by Stephanie Perkins and it includes stories from some of my favorite authors. I’m also pretty excited to read the third book in the Finding Fate series. It’s a really fun new adult series.

STS Aug 3

Bought:
Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) by Diana Gabaldon
Voyager (Outlander #3) by Diana Gabaldon
Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4) by Diana Gabaldon
The Fiery Cross (Outlander #5) by Diana Gabaldon
A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6) by Diana Gabaldon
An Echo in the Bone (Outlander #7) by Diana Gabaldon
The Outlandish Companion by Diana Gabaldon

Needless to say, I broke my book buying ban. I watched the first episode of Outlander and decided I had to start the series. I’ve read the first book already and I’m not reading the second one. I went ahead and bought through book 7. I figured those would keep me busy for a while. Well that and I ran out of money to buy the newest book.
