This Week's Headlines:
Hey all! So it's actually been a great week, as school has just begun and I attended my second-ever book event in Toronto! My classes are going pretty well, and am stuck with a pile of homework and assignments, and it's just going to be the fourth day. I have Science, Math, History and World Religions this semester, though am pretty glad to have the classes with a big group of my friends.
Yesterday (Saturday) I set off into the downtown core, Toronto, heading over to one of the most gorgeous libraries I've seen (I haven't seen many, though), heading over for Raincoast Books' Winter-Spring Preview of 2016 books! I'll be doing a recap on that sometime this week, but, all I can say was that it was fabulous! I ALSO RECEIVED TWO AMAZING BOOKS AND SWAG AND... you'll see that below, though.
My Book Haul:
BAM BAM BAMMM! My queen that I've been waiting a year for is finally in my grabby hands! Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas has a stellar cover and I can't wait to get inside Celaena/Aelin's world again, for the fifth time, counting the novellas! It has so many 5-starred reviews!
I can't believe what I had the pleasure of receiving from Raincoast at the event! TRUTHWITCH IS FINALLY IN MY HANDS, EVERYONE! After my horrible attempt of getting it (and signed) at BEA in May, I thought my chances were over for ever getting it before its release in January.
And I See Reality? It's also out in January, coming from Macmillan. I haven't heard about it before, but that was what the sneak-peek event was for! Twelve short stories about real life issues? It totally sounds like my kind of book. *winks*
*Thank you so much to Raincoast Books for these special goodies, and for inviting me to the event!*
