What happened on the blog this week?

Reviews of:

Crewel by Gennifer Albin   "Oh, what a subtle web we weave...." What did I think of this dystopian?

Velveteen by Daniel Marks  Did this story of love and revenge have me spellbound?

  1. I'm catching up on some "older" releases this weekend too: Because It Is My Blood (finally) as well as the new Thursday Next book. Hope you enjoy The Raven Boys-that's on my tbr list in December/January.

    1. Well, I think they do. Right? Maybe? But my blog is not the place to get the lowdown on that!

      I need to watch that show this summer. I read three or four of the Vampire Diaries books way back when.

  3. I LOVED Venom AND The Raven Boys!! I really hope you like them too. I want to catch up on some older books too. I have a few blog tour commitments to do first but I think November and some of December might be time to read some of them for me!

  4. I like the Freaks Like Us cover! Must investigate further...

    I'm about to organize my bookshelves. That should occupy my whole day (or weekend!)

    1. I'm about to start that one. Will let you know!

      I am constantly rearranging my bookshelves. I'm kinda OCD..

  5. Love the search term! I've had some like that and I've had to go search myself to figure out where exactly they led to. Sometimes I can't find anything!

    That's awesome you have a bit of a lull and can read what you want! I like days like that. :)

    Enjoy your week!

  7. I have the Raven Boys sitting next to me also! I just have to quickly get through The Diviners before it needs to go back to the library. The Stefan and Elena thing cracks me up. Very VERY fanfic, although I am much more a Delena girl myself.

    1. "Quickly get through the Diviners"

      Excuse me while I fall over laughing. I think it's almost 600 pages!

    2. I know. That is delusion at its finest.

    3. You can do it. Don't let my mockery discourage you. I'm listening to it on Audible and I'm half way through. It's fun!

  8. I have heard that Venom is the best of the Breathless Reads books, hope you enjoy!

    1. I thought Falco was ... okay. I need to know more about Luca. I think he's going to end up to be more interesting. LOL -- you and I have very different taste in guys. Except Adrian of course.

  13. I haven't read anything this week because my brother is visiting and we decided to a few projects that I've wanted to do on my house.

    I really hope you love Venom, and I have a copy of The Raven Boys, but I just don't know when I'll get to it. I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Have fun with your brother. It's beautiful out here and I want to get outside too!

  14. I agree, what?

    I just read The Raven Boys this week and LOVED it! It is my favorite of hers by far. There wasn't really much romance, which was fine by me. I think she is actually going to let it be a natural relationship (no instant-love) and build over the series, which is the best. I'm sure there will be some twists too, since there already were some in this first book. :)

    I've got to catch up on your other reviews and get some more books added to my tbr.

    I hope you have a great week this week! :)
