It’s so hard to believe August is here! I go back to work on Tuesday for Orientation Week, and the students start August 12th. I can’t believe how close the school year is! Yesterday I went up to my school and did some serious work on my classroom. It’s actually starting to look halfway put together, although I still have a LOT of things to do. This weekend I’m going to work on little details, like getting the kids’ names on the door decorations and name tags, printing out a couple of cute reading-based posters I found online, etc. I still need to take care of all the bulletin boards, finish sorting the books the previous teacher left for me, and figuring out what to do with all the miscellaneous reading materials. Plus probably a whole bunch of other things I’m totally forgetting about. SO OVERWHELMED! I just need to remember to breathe, and take it one step at a time. Right?
Anyway, I actually haven’t picked up that many books the past two weeks. I’ve been diligently trying to get through some of my outstanding e-galleys, so am glad I don’t have too many more to add to my to-read/review pile. The month of August is going to be made up primarily of e-galleys, because I just really want to get on top of things. And once I get a handle on my galleys, I plan on NOT requesting anything else unless I can read it as soon as I’m approved. Or at least that’s the goal. We’ll see how it actually works out.
Library/Received for Review:
- Where Beauty Lies by Elle and Blair Fowler (from publisher for review)
- Her Highness, the Traitor by Susan Higgenbotham
- Ashes of Twilight (Ashes #1) by Kassy Tayler (from publisher for review)
Thank you a ton to St. Martin’s for the finished copies! I received the sequel to Ashes of Twilight a couple weeks ago, but hadn’t read the first, so asked if any copies of it were available. I’m really grateful that they were willing to send me a copy. Look for my reviews of both books in this series within the next two months. I also haven’t read Beneath the Glitter, which is the book that precedes Where Beauty Lies, but am actually not all that interested in the series. So instead, I shall be passing my copy on to Lauren @ Lose Time Reading, who has promised to give it a good home.
- The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (NetGalley)
- The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark #1) by Bree Despain (Edelweiss)
- When the World was Flat (And We Were in Love) by Ingrid Jonach (NetGalley)
- The Beautiful and the Cursed: Marco’s Story by Page Morgan
Thank you to Disney-Hyperion, EgmontUSA and Angry Robot for the e-galleys! After reading and LOVING The Beautiful and the Cursed, I also had to pick up this novella about Marco. I can’t wait to find the time to squeeze his story in!
So that’s what I picked up the last two weeks. What did you get? Please link me!
