My blog is like my baby and I hate leaving it for so long, but I am back and have some exciting things to show/share from my mini vacay in Northern Michigan with Autumn from Kitty Cat Reads (and my real life bff and soul mate!) Of course the two of us went to a local bookstore and coffee shop to work on our blogs for a day!
I am all about supporting local and independent bookstores so I had to make a purchase (of course). I bought Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead, which is the first book in a four book series. (I am planning on someday owning/reading everything by Richelle Mead!) We spent the rest of our time enjoying the sunshine and reading our books! We even attempted to do some vlogging (not sure if I will actually post it, we will see what the final product looks like)
How could you not enjoy this view! As well we were also able to find an awesome deal for a bind up of a trilogy from Walmart. Autumn and I both bought a copy of SummerTrilogy ( The Summer I Turned Pretty, Its Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer) by Jenny Han! I have had this trilogy in my cart on Amazon for awhile since it has been talked about a lot recently in the book community and could not believe the deal for the bind up.
When I stopped at my parent’s house on the way home I picked up my package that was delivered there, which was a surprise and I have no idea where they are from, but inside the box was The Sweet Trilogy (Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril and Sweet Reckoning) by Wendy Higgins! I really wish I knew where the box came from, but still how could you not love a box of surprise free books!
When I got home from my trip I found some presents in my mailbox! I received some swag from Michelle Krys the author of Hexed! I got a two bookmarks and a signed book plate! I also received an Arc copy of How We Fall by Kate Brauning! The book comes out in November and you can check out the synopsis and such here! The author was nice enough to send me a copy for review as well as some book swag! She wrote me a cute little note along with some info bookmarkish things (one of them is even signed!) She was also nice enough to sign the book for me! Thank you so much Kate Brauning! (This is my first official physical Arc!)
As well as all the books, another exciting thing was posted this weekend on YA Reads , my guest post about the top books I have read so far this year! So you should definitely go check that out! A few months ago I would have never believed I would be getting so many opportunities and making an impact (whether it is just a small one) in the book community! Thank you to everyone who has friended/ supported me 🙂
