Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
It is very hard to believe that I have not written an In My Mailbox post since January! Crazy to think that at the time of me writing the 13th edition of this series of posts, we had no idea how insane the year would become. As a result of COVID-19, publishing houses have been sending out a very limited number of physical ARCs (luckily, I bought a Kindle Paperwhite, so I have been loving reading eARCs lately!), especially since most ARCs are printed and distributed from US warehouses, while I live in Canada. However, I have received quite a few incredibly exciting ARCs in the mail over the past three weeks, which I will be featuring right here, right now!
The first book I received in the mail was Group: How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life by Christie Date. This book was sent to me from Simon & Schuster Canada, and is set to release on October 27, 2020. This year, I have been loving non-fiction, specifically memoirs, so I was very intrigued when this showed up in my mailbox at the beginning of August! The concept of therapy is really interesting to me, and I hope to learn more about it though this book!
The second book I received was Even If We Break by Marieke Nijkamp. This book was sent to me from Raincoast Canada, and released on September 15, 2020. I read one of Nijkamp’s former publications, This Is Where It Ends, several years ago, and remember enjoying it, so I hope I enjoy this one just as much!
I then received In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren (insert screaming here)! This book was sent to me from Simon and Schuster Canada, and is set to release on October 6, 2020. Words cannot describe how shocked I was to find this inside of the package! I have only ever read Christina Lauren novels as either eARCs or library books, so I am thrilled to finally have one to add to my physical library! Here’s hoping that I enjoy this one just as much as I loved The Unhoneymooners!
The fourth book I received in my mailbox was Undrafted by Nick Kypreos. This book was sent to me from Simon and Schuster Canada, and is set to release on October 20, 2020. Kypreos is a former hockey player and current hockey analyst on Sportsnet (a Canadian sports network). He is one of my favourite hockey analysts, and I am very excited to read his memoir!
The final book I received from Simon and Schuster Canada was The Woman Outside My Door by Rachel Ryan, which is set to be released on November 24, 2020. This is one of my most anticipated reads of Fall 2020, and I even had it pre-ordered from Indigo! I am so thankful to S&S for sending me this ARC (among all of the others!), and I can’t wait to read and review it!
The second last book I received was Beautiful Wild by Anna Godbersen. This book was sent to me from HarperCollins Canada/HCC Frenzy, and is set to release on November 3, 2020. If you were a member of the online book community around 2012, you have probably heard of The Luxe Series, as it was an incredibly popular series during the “old-days” of BookTube and the book-blog-osphere! While I never read any of them, I really looking forward to Godbersen’s newest release!
The final book I received in my mailbox recently was Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson! This book was sent to me from HCC Frenzy, and was released on September 15, 2020. I have had this book on my radar ever since it was first announced, and I am so thankful to have it in my hands! I can’t wait to read and review it!
Those are all of the books I have received in my mailbox recently! Thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada, Raincoast Canada, and HCC Frenzy for sending me these beautiful ARCs! I am looking forward to reading and reviewing all of them in the near future!
Good Night Book Owls!
