This week was a pretty awesome bookish week, had a lot of great new books turning up which was a nice surprise. I also saw the Maze Runner movie last week with Bec and found it disappointing because of all the stuff they blatantly changed and cut out of the book.
I also got my PAX tickets which is a gaming expo in Melbourne every year! We’ll be jetsetting off to Melbourne on October 31st, I’m super excited.
A reminder for Read Play Blog on October 16 – the topic is “What game character would you like to be for Halloween?” Whether it’s your favourite character or someone you admire, we want to know! Read Play Blog is a gaming meme out on the 16th every month which features an answer to the monthly topic, a recommendation and what you’re currently playing. More info here.

Review copies — physical
Dissonance by Erica O’Rouke – I definitely prefer the US cover better, but I can’t wait to read this time travel story!
After by Anna Todd – Haven’t heard much about it, but the author is an internet sensation, so this NA should be interesting.
Crash by Sean Williams – I met Sean Williams recently and he was the loveliest guy, so I’ll definitely have to read Jump and this!
Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst – This sounds freaking awesome with that creepy carnival setting, reminds me of The Night Circus.
Jonah from Tonga by Chris Lilley – I haven’t seen Tonga or Summer Heights High, so I don’t know if I’d be too keen to read this one.
Thank you to Allen and Unwin, Bloomsbury Australia, Simon and Schuster Australia and HarperCollins Australia for the review copies!
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield – couldn’t resist this ghostly read on sale!
