I have been surprisingly busy this week. I’m really behind on commenting and I’m sorry if I missed anyone’s posts! It wasn’t even doing anything important or interesting. I’ve just had to keep running into town for various things. I had a paranormal investigation Friday night. Then this morning the fam and I went to the platform markets and I indulged in waffles with strawberries, nutella, almonds & coconut. One of my towns many beaches is directly across from the markets so we walked across there and bought Iced Chais. There was even more people than usual at the beach today and almost every single one of them had dogs with them and I was confused, but in no way complaining. It was heaven. Then when I got home I realised it was the RSPCA’s Million Paws walk and it all made sense. I was also hoping to get this post finished and in my schedule before tonight’s investigation, but that didn’t happen so 😂
These are old photos, but still – you get the idea 😂
I mentioned this in my award post the other day, but after four years my favourite band, Pierce The Veil, FINALLY released their new album. It was perfect and it’s all I’ve been listening to for the past three days. My favourite songs are: Dive In, Texas Is Forever, The Divine Zero, Floral & Fading, Circles, Bedless and Song For Isabelle To say I was highly anticipating this album is an understatement. Finally listening to it was a very emotional experience.
Also, my football team won their game today by 103 points so that was pretty rad.
I hope everyone who went to BEA and BookCon had an amazing time. I’m totally not jealous or anything. Nope. What gives you that idea 😂
Covers = Goodreads.
If you follow me on Twitter you’d know I was fortunate enough to win a copy of The Star-Touched Queen thanks to Rachel @ Nerd Herd Reads who hosted an April New Release Giveaway! I was so happy when I won because Star-Touched wasn’t available in e-book format for Australia and the hardcover was $25AUD on Book Depository, which is a little out of my price range. I should be finishing A Court of Thorns and Roses, but this kept staring at me and I couldn’t resist so I caved and read the first few chapters and I adore the writing style. I can’t wait to read more!! Since I won Star-Touched this means I bought NO physical books this week! I’m more shocked than you are.
The Fall of Butterflies is pitched as We Were Liars meets Looking For Alaska. I loved both of those books so much, so I’m really interested to see if it lives up to that claim. If I Was Your Girl is about a MC who is a trans woman! The author and the girl on the cover are both trans women too and that makes me so happy. I’m excited to eventually get to it! I’m still on a The Raven Cycle hangover and want to try and read Maggie’s other books. I’m not really in the mood for werewolves at this point in time so I grabbed The Scorpio Races. It sounds super interesting and Sheridan loves it so I’m sure I will too!
