Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Over the past three weeks, we have had three snow storms, and my mail has been so off and on because of the weather. However, I received five books yesterday, so I thought it would be very fun to share them with you! I always love watching BookTube unboxing/book mail haul videos, and this is my written out version of them! As always, I am not trying to brag in anyway and create these posts as a preview to future reviews that I will be sharing in the future!
All of the books that are featured/shown in this post were sent to me for free by either Raquel Rich, Raincoast Books or Penguin Random House Canada (I will specify which book came from where when I mention it).
The first book I received was Hamartia by Raquel Rich. Raquel reached out to me a few weeks ago to see if I could review her book, and I gladly accepted the invitation! This novel sounds really interesting, especially if you are into Sci-Fi books. From the reviews I have read online, it seems like this book is going to be really great, so I am really looking forward to reading it! Thanks to Raquel for sending me her novel!
The second book I received came from Raincoast Canada, and is called “Wicked Saints” by Emily A. Duncan. I am participating in the Raincoast Blog Tour for this book, and my post/review will be up on March 29. I am super excited to start this book, and think that it is going to be a really interesting read!
You have NO IDEA how excited I was to receive this book in the mail!!!!! The second book I received from Raincoast Canada is “Again, But Better” by Christine Riccio (A.K.A. Poland Bananas Books on BookTube)! I had seen ARCs from Christine’s personal friends social media accounts, and am beyond fortunate that I received an ARC for myself! This book is among one of my Top 3 releases of 2019, and words cannot describe how thrilled I am to be able to read this book before the release date!! I might not be able to wait until May to read it… and now I don’t have to!
Thanks again to Raincoast Canada for “Wicked Saints” and “Again, But Better”!
Later yesterday afternoon, I received a large box in the mail from Penguin Random House Canada! I had requested a few books from their February newsletter, and since we are already near the end of February, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be sent my requests… but here they are!
The first book I received from Penguin Random House Canada was “The Hiding Place” by C.J. Tudor. Since my love affair with mystery/thrillers started during the last quarter of 2018, I haven’t been able to stop reading them! I don’t know much about this book, other than that it is a thriller combined with horror elements.
The second book I received from Penguin Random House Canada was “Chicken Girl” by Heather Smith. Penguin Random House Canada doesn’t usually offer many Young Adult titles, so whenever I see one that I am semi-interested in, I will usually request it. This one seems like such a great book, and I’m really excited to read it!
The last book I received from Penguin Random House Canada is one that has received a lot of buzz over the past few weeks. “Black Leopard, Red Wolf” by Marlon James is a book that I have had on my radar ever since ARCs were sent out and posted around the book-socials. Apparently this one combines african history and mythology, which sounds very intriguing to me!
The last two books I received came from Simon & Schuster Canada via NetGalley. “The Last” by Hanna Jameson has something to do with people trapped in a hotel during a nuclear war, and also has a sub plot line about a murder mystery that takes place within the hotel. Doesn’t that sound so interesting?! “Social Misconduct” by S.J. Maher is about a girl whose phone gets hacked and life (potentially) gets ruined because of it (I think). I’m really looking forward to both of these titles! They both are scheduled to be released sometime in April.
Those are all of the books I received literally yesterday!! Thanks to Raquel Rich, Raincoast Books, Penguin Random House Canada, and Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me these ARCs, I am so appreciative of them!
Good Night Book Owls!
