This week was pretty successful for me in terms of getting books! Due to the Stanley Cup game between Vancouver and Boston, Chapters had a Canucks sale online where members got an additional discount. This offer was too tempting for me to pass up so I bought three books that have been on my to-read list for a while now! Due to the mail strike in Canada right now I didn't expect to get these books for another couple of weeks, but I was happily suprised to find them in my mailbox on Wednesday :)
Falling Under by Gwen Hayes
Falling Under intrigued me from the moment I first saw its cover online a couple of months ago. I put it on my to-read list right away, but then sort of forgot about it until after my friend Chelsey from Bright Lights, Big City suggested I pick up a copy as it came with one of her highest recommendations! According to Chelsey the cover "feels like velvet in your hands," and it turns out she was right! It has one of the softest covers I've ever felt! I can't wait to get started on this one!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
When I first heard about Anna and the French Kiss I thought that it looked like a fun, lighthearted novel, but it wasn't something that I was completely interested in reading. My mind was soon changed, however, after reading so many fantastic reviews online about this book! Rather than passing it by, I thought I would pick up a copy and see if the reviews have been right! Hopefully I won't be disappointed!
Red Glove By Holly Black
Ever since I finished reading White Cat I have been dying to read the sequel!! After restraining myself for weeks whenever I drove by Chapters I finally managed to order a copy of Red Glove! I really hope this novel is as good as the first one, and I am super excited to find out what happens to Cassel next!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Before my shipment of books arrived in the mail I stopped off at the library and picked up a copy of Clockwork Angel to read, thinking that my order would not arrive for another couple of weeks. My friend Jackie from The Hardcover Harlequinn swears by this book, so I'm excited to see how good it actually is! While I'm craving to start digging into some of the other books I got this week, I think I'm going to start reading this one first since it's due back at the library next week!
