Today, March 8th, is release day for some super awesome titles in both SciFi/Fantasy and Contemporary that I’m really excited for. Basically what this means is that I can finally put hold requests for them at my library. Am I doing a happy dance right now? Yes, yes I am. *Deflates slightly when crashes into current TBR and is reminded of it’s monstrous size. Re-inflates to the size of a hot air balloon at the prospect of such a challenge, because devouring books is endgame and no, there is no such thing as too many books.*
So, I know some of these titles are super hyped up, but since I don’t really pay attention to hype (as in I don’t hear it because of the very comfy rock I live under) and I typically go into books blind after reading the blurb months in advanced anyway, it turns out that for some of these books I’ve already forgotten what they are supposed to be about. So essentially, I’m trusting my past self’s judgement, my tendency to be a click-happy fiend whilst perusing Goodreads, and of course their glorious or not so glorious covers (because, yes, I am totally an unabashed cover snob #sorrynotsorry).
Here’s a look at the titles that are being released today that I’m totally, crazily amped up for and want right now despite the fact that I just returned from the library with a delicious haul of some other amazing books that I had been drooling over for ages.
SO MANY GOOD BOOKS!! *fans self* Like can we just take a break from life, hole away for a week, or two, or three and binge read until we can’t see straight anymore? Like can that be a thing? Someone needs to invent a reading retreat like NOW.
Things have been warming up here in Georgia *leaps for joy*. FINALLY, I was tired of freezing to death and interchangeably being caught in torrential downpours where hydroplaning was code for recreational fun. The warmer weather means that I’ve been seen dragging a blanky out on any grassy knoll that I can find, bringing my book along and getting in some reading time while managing to avoid getting steamrolled by the kids and encouraging them to do said steamrolling to each other instead >.<
While on that note, what’s the weather looking like where you’re at? Is the sun coming out? How does the weather play into your reading time? Do you like to go outside to read? Oh, and sort of random, but what are your favorite spring snacks to bring along on a picnic, because snacks are important, and I need ideas people, two hungry munchkins are eating me out of house and home, remember?!?
Oh, and what books are you looking forward to this week? Or what are you currently reading?
