New To My Book Closet

It's that time of the week again. Time to show you what bookish goodies made their way into my home and book closet (to be saved from the evil book eating cat monster named Aria). This is inspired by the various "mailbox" posts out there (eg. In My Mailbox by The Story Siren, and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews).

This week was an insane book mail week! So many amazing titles made their way into my house. I am looking towards a pretty amazing summer of reading with all of these titles.

First up was the Ottawa Book Blogger Meet Up. We had a fantastic day filled with bookish talk, and fun. The publishers were incredibly generous and sent a lot of awesome titles.

Never Ever by Sara Saedi (goodreads)
Everland by Wendy Spinale (goodreads)
Run by Kody Keplinger (goodreads)
Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick (goodreads)
The Last Boy And Girl In The World by Siobhan Vivian (goodreads)
The Memory Book by Lara Avery (goodreads)
Drag Teen by Jeffery Self (goodreads)
Two Summers by Aimee Friedman (goodreads)
The Merciless II by Danielle Vega (goodreads)
Roses and Rot by Kat Howard (goodreads)
The Oxford Inheritance by AA McDonald (goodreads)
The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye (goodreads)

It's probably not surprising that I am SUPER excited about the two Peter Pan inspired novels! I have already read Everland and LOVED it. I have high hopes for Never Ever. Thanks again to all the publishers for helping make this meet up extra special and thanks for everyone who came. It was great to see you all!

Next up was a bookish mug I purchased for Evie's Society6 store. My love of Peter Pan is well known and this mug paired perfect with my reading of Everland! I intend to use it again when devouring Never Ever.

Evie's designs are always lovely! I have also purchased a set of carry-all pouches with this design on it! Excited for them to arrive.

Raincoast Books, who distributes a lot of publishers here in Canada, had their annual blogger fall preview event and they sent us swag packs filled with awesome goodies along with two upcoming ARCs.

Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige (goodreads)
One Was Lost by Natalie D Richards (goodreads)

Thank you to Raincoast for the fun event, and the swag pack! I am super excited to read Stealing Snow and was thrilled to find it in my pack. At the meet up I heard One Was Lost described as The Breakfast Club meets The Blair Witch Project and I immediately needed to read it!

I had some pre-orders come in as well this week. Two books that everyone is buzzing about (and for good reason as both of these are highly anticipated books)

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas (goodreads)
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (goodreads)

The Unexpected Everything is simply adorable. It's a perfect summertime read! I am super nervous to read A Court of Mist and Fury based on some spoilers I heard, but hope to get to it soon. I anticipate having an unpopular opinion about the events of the book but I do trust Sarah J Maas to write a beautiful story.

What bookish items made their way into your mailbox this week?

Happy Weekend and Happy Reading!

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
