  2. The Raven Boys! Can't wait to read that. I hope it's just as good as The Scorpio Races.

    1. I'm trying to manage my expectations post-Scorpio, because it seems ludicrous to expect the same thing in terms of impact. However. I really cannot wait to dive in!

  5. I'm so glad to see that The Raven Boys were unputdownable, Angie. One of my Norwegian book blogging friends went to BEA and she surprised me with mailing me copy of The Raven Boys when she got back home. I was over the moon! Can't wait to delve into Maggie's world :)

    1. Mari, that is so awesome!! What a good friend.

      I haven't read them yet, I should clarify. They were just the ones I couldn't bear to stick in the box to ship. Lol.

  6. I'm reading THE DARKEST MINDS now. (And then probably THE RAVEN BOYS.) Good picks.

  9. I can't wait to try The Darkest Minds. I really liked Brightly Woven--it doesn't get enough play, IMO. Look forward to your thoughts:)

    1. Flannery, I feel precisely the same way. It really flew under the radar, and I've been so excited to see what she'd do next.

  10. GAH! Proof that I have way too many books to read atm is the fact that I have both of these, and am STILL jealous of you having gotten to them. Hope they made great company on the trip home!

    1. Heidi, LOL. We book bloggers are a strange lot, to be sure.

      To be clear, I haven't read them yet. Just stroked fondly and savored the anticipation. I know . . .

    1. Shane, there were a LOT of people excited about snagging a copy. And rightly so.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men.

Blog Tour Review | Breath Like Water by Anna Jarzab

Today, I'm happy to be taking part in the blog tour for Anna Jarzab's Breath Like Water courtesy of Inkyard Press . You are likely familiar with my love for sports and sports-themed novels (may the Giants play again soon). So I was intrigued by both the lovely cover and the concept of an elite swimmer who peaks quite young but is still determined to claw her way to the Olympics.   ABOUT THE BOOK This beautifully lyrical contemporary novel features an elite teen swimmer with Olympic dreams, plagued by injury and startled by unexpected romance, who struggles to balance training with family and having a life. For fans of Sarah Dessen, Julie Murphy and Miranda Kenneally. Susannah Ramos has always loved the water. A swimmer whose early talent made her a world champion, Susannah was poised for greatness in a sport that demands so much of its young. But an inexplicable slowdown has put her Olympic dream in jeopardy, and Susannah is fighting to keep her career afloat when two importan
