August 2017 Recap

I didn’t think that I had a very good reading or blogging month until I was preparing this post, but I actually read much more and posted much more than I thought I did. So yay for me. The most exciting thing to happen this month was that I got to go with Amanda to two different book events to see Karin Slaughter and Lisa Scottoline.

I also won a contest for an ARC (and “swag”) of Renegades by Marissa Meyer! I’ve started the book and am enjoying it so far. The “swag” were some pens and a slap bracelet. Are slap bracelets back in? I remember them being very popular when I was a kid…until people kept getting cut by them. This one has a rubbery exterior so I think it’s safer than what we had back in my day. I don’t really know what I’ll do with it, though.

Emery Lord is writing a sequel to The Start of Me and You

My favorite Emery Lord book, The Start of Me and You is getting a sequel! Unfortunately we have to wait until 2019 for The Map from Here to There, but it’s always exciting when the author of a beloved standalone decides to continue the characters’ stories.
