Weekly Wrap-up + New Books

Hello everyone,
I didn't post nearly as much this week as last week because I was in the midst of the BookTubeAThon reading marathon. It's going well--I'm on my fifth book with two more days left! May be able to sneak in another book before it officially ends. However, Leslie came back to the blogging world (after a 4-month hiatus) with a review. Yay!

I vlogged! I shared what books I'm planning to read for the BookTubeAThon.

Review: Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule
An underrated debut. More people need to read this book.

Book I Covet: First There Was Forever by Juliana Romano
The description said this debut novel is perfect for Huntley Fitzpatrick fans.

Loved one, liked one and one was meh.

Leslie: Haze (The Rephaim #2) by Paula Weston

Michelle: Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

I didn't think we were going to get any books this week but my Amazon orders surprisingly got delivered sooner than I thought. And we got a review copy of a book we've both been highly anticipating.

Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis (ARC for review)
This is the one where the whole town mourned for the main character's death but she reappeared months later like nothing happened and she's strangely drawn to the mysterious circus in the woods.
Haven by Kristi Cook (bought)
Mirage by Kristi Cook (bought)
I quite enjoyed Kristi Cook's Magnolia (my review) so I thought I'd check out her other books.
Arranged by Catherine McKenzie (bought)
I was craving a straight-up chick lit and this one sounds really good and has high ratings.

And here are the covers of the books.

What new books did you guys get? I wanna see! Leave your STS* link so I can come gush over them.

Happy reading,
