Week in the Nest is a new feature on the blog where I'll discuss bookish things from the past week or so! As soon as summer comes, it will be more of a weekly meme. But for now, I just really wanted to share with you my book haul this month heheh. I've linked to The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews :)
(Click on the cover to be linked to Goodreads)
-Ebooks + Physical copies-
Featuring one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends: Connor Cobalt from the Addicted series!
It comes with 15 other YA/NA novels too for only 99 cents so I thought, "Gimme".
Via NetGalley. Thank you Patchwork Press - Cooperative, Skyscape and Random House Children's!
The super sweet Tanya at T&G Book Boutique gifted this lovely book to me.
It sounds like an emotional read which is right up my alley so I can't wait to dive in!
THANK YOU THANK YOU, TANYA *blows kisses*
Waiting on Wednesday (11)
Review - Cinder by Marissa Meyer(?)
I subscribed to OwlCrate, a monthly YA subscription box where you'll receive one newly published YA book and a few bookish goodies! I first heard of it from Siiri (bless that darling because I don't often watch booktubers and I probably wouldn't have heard of it otherwise)! Then after watching a number of unboxing videos, my interest was piqued! I had to give it a shot. One thing I really like about OwlCrate is how each box is centered around a theme which they announce on the 15th of the month prior. The theme for the May box (the one I'll be getting) is Parallel Worlds. I can't wait!
There were a number of wonderful recap/discussion posts in the blogosphere last week!
Aimee at Deadly Darlings recaps her trip to Japan and entering the wizarding world of Harry Potter
Allie at Little Birdie Books asks how do you keep the spark in blogging?
Benish at Feminist Reflections talks about themes in NA books that she dislikes
Jeann at Happy Indulgence discusses emotional vs. critical reviews
Lisa & Becca at Lost in Literature discusses the difficult choice of ebooks, physical books or audiobooks
You got some great books. I love the cover of Art and Soul. I really want to read The Consequences of Loving Colton. I need to get my hands on placate but I keep missing the deadline to.a sign up.ReplyDelete

I've heard The Consequence of Loving Colton is a fun one. I hope you get your hands on it soon!Delete
There's a wide array of books there. I'm very boring in my taste I'm afraid and stick to one or two genres!ReplyDelete
Oh I feel ya! My go-to genre will always be Adult/New Adult Contemporary Romance but I'm slowly moving towards YA books and I'm enjoying it so far :)Delete
Nice haul! I really need to give Rachel Van Dyken another chance. I didn't enjoy her Bet series. Hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete

Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

I see quite a few books that look fantastic. I really hope that you love all of your new books this week.ReplyDelete
Grace @ Books of Love
Great haul this week. I have been wanting to check out Aristotle and Dante for the longest time so I will be looking forward to your review. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian
A number of my friends really enjoyed it and said it's a cute read! Hopefully I'll get to it soon, I have a whole summer binge list to get through haha.Delete
That's a spectacular mix of genres. So many I'll be checking out. Enjoy and have fun with OwlCrate!ReplyDelete

Thanks! And I'm glad to hear you loved Simon!! I keep hearing how enjoyable and cute it was.Delete
Congrats on snagging an OwlCrate subscription! I'm super jealous! Maybe I'll be able to get one soon. Everyone I know who has received one loved it, hope you will too.ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of those books myself, but I see a few that I am going to my TBR right this moment.
Dreams @ Once Upon A Dream Books
I was basically sitting around that night waiting for the subscriptions to go live again lol. Hope you'll get your hands on one next time!Delete
You have Aristotle and Dante!I've been wanting to read that book for a long time.Let me know what you think of it after you finish the book!ReplyDelete
I've never heard of Owlcrate before,but it sounds amazing!I can't wait to see what you'll get next month:)
I'll definitely write up a post about it next month! And I hope I'll get to both Aristotle and Simon soon! I have a list of some of my older tbr books that I'm going to try to get through first heheDelete
SO MANY BOOKS!ReplyDelete
Ahhh i'm super jelly! I did also get Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda though so I hope you enjoy it too! We shall discuss once we've both devoured it!
YES! We will indeed and of course we'll be eating oreos during said discussion, right?!Delete
Oh my gosh, I'm slightly jealous - there are some books I've been DYING to read (mainly Simon and Ari & Dante on your list. I'm quite interested in hearing what you think about them - I've heard some awesome buzz. :D And yay for OwlCrate! I love the idea of a bookish subscription box, and getting a box of bookish goodies every month can never be a bad thing ;)ReplyDelete
Ain't that the truth!! I was a little hesitant to subscribe because it's quite pricey but thought it wouldn't hurt to try it once to see for myself. I hope you get to read them soon!! I've only heard good things so far :DDelete
Aw I just saw my blog on here, thank you for sharing :) 5 to 1 sounds pretty exciting, I have a copy of that as well and I should dive into it soon - happy reading! I hope you enjoy all your new finds.ReplyDelete
Benish| Feminist Reflections
Thank youu!! And my pleasure, it was a fab post (as everything about your blog is tbh) Hope we both enjoy 5 to 1!Delete
I need to read Simon, so many people adore it. Those different book box things are pretty popular. I keep seeing different types. Hope you're having a great week.ReplyDelete
Same here, Christy!! I hope you're having a wonderful week :DDelete
Thanks for sharing my post, love! And gah, I would totally love to subscribe to OwlCrate and the likes, but unfortunately shipping will probably cost a fortune, so... :( I HOPE YOU LOVE SIMON! It's just the cutest thing ever I swear. And 5 to 1 was pretty brilliant too. :)ReplyDelete
Dude, I'm reading it right now and am really enjoying it! I don't know if it's because Sudasa's chapters are written in verse, but I'm just flying through it!!Delete
