Well, it is here in Australia. Sorry, Northern Hemisphere, but you guys get Autumn (and winter!), which is probably just as awesome because it means it’s getting cold. Here? It’s getting hot. Ugh. I’m swamped with uni work at the moment, so my posting efforts are a bit lax, but I’m slowly making a dent in my physical review books, and I’ve almost cleared off my Netgalley read list. What?!? I know right. That’ll be the day when I stop requesting Netgalley books (I daren’t even look at my TBR from Edelweiss. Curse pre-approval!).
(this is the cutest gif ever omg they’re books dancing send help)
One of the great things about this time of year is that it seems like all the amazing books are having release day parties. Which, let’s be honest, is detrimental for us readers because we just want all the books and not just for pretty Instagram aesthetics (I digress, that’s one of the reasons why). And let me tell you, there are some amazing books coming out in the next couple of weeks (or have just been released) which makes me so glad it’s almost my birthday and I can justify a book buying binge.
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess // Release Date: 20th September 2016
