Indulgence Insider is my version of Stacking the Shelves and the Sunday Post, bringing you this week’s haul, bookish news and discussion posts from around the blogosphere!
Thank you all for helping me celebrate my 2 year blogoversary this week, it was a wonderful day and I feel very loved! Hopefully I will be blogging for many more years to come 🙂 Enter my giveaway here if you haven’t already to win a $15 TBD book of your choice!
Last week I didn’t have an Indulgence Insider, I usually do them when I gather up enough books to preview.
I have always posted at 6pm during the weekday and whatever time on the weekends. This week I’ve been changing up my posting times, around 9am or 12pm on weekdays. Do you guys have a preference for posting times?
Review copies – physical
Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth – Totally in for some more Four!
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – I have finished reading this from my buddy read with Kristy and it is amazing. Still gathering my thoughts on it.
The Queen of Tearling by Erika Johansen – Signed proof copy and I read the insert and Emma Watson has read the book and is cast in the film – wow!
Five Ways to Fall by K.A. Tucker – Have heard very good things, very eager to continue the series.
Masquerade by Kylie Fornasier – No doubt this will be incredibly atmospheric, I look forward to it.
Thank you to Random House Australia, Allen and Unwin, Harper Collins Australia, Simon & Schuster Australia and Penguin Australia!
I really need to stay away from the library, but every time I go in to return my books I feel the urge to check out what’s on the shelves. I’ve been working through these copies at the moment, some I’ve really wanted to read for ages like Ketchup Clouds and Roomies.
Every Word by Ellie Marney – Thank you to Mel @ YA Midnight Reads for your amazing competition!
