Hello all. It’s that time again. Time for this week’s edition of The Perks of Being a Bookseller.
I’m feeling pretty rushy today… if that’s a real word. So, without any further adieu, this is what I acquired this week from various publishers.

I’m in between a lot of publishers’ seasons. However, I’m still expecting Macmillan, Hachette, and Penguin to deluge me soon. And likely Scholastic as well, though all three of those tend to come in spurts instead of proper drizzles. That copy of The Bone Season is from Macmillan and I started it already. It’s very intriguing, albeit a bit dense in the world building aspect.
Still, most intriguing. I am enjoying it.
I don’t have a lot of time to talk so I’m going to wrap it up quickly this week. I told you I was feeling rushed. But I’m still walking/reading and fighting the good fight. I’ve lost ten pounds so far and read 15 books last month. So it’s working. In spades.
Go me!
Happy reading all! What are you most looking forward to?

I’ve been interested in The Bone Season for a while now, but it’s going to be quite the lengthy series so I’ve wondered how detailed and dense the worldbuilding will be. I’ll definitely be interested to see what you think!

Glad to hear your reading walks are paying off – go you! XD 10 pounds is really impressive in such a short time – good for you and good luck losing the rest for your dress!

I look forward to your inevitable book deluge soon! 😉
