Summer Nostalgia & More ARCs

I was going through my bookshelves today trying to decide which books to take a picture of today. While I was doing this I spotted The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares. I knew right away I was going to take a picture of these because today for a lot of Canadians is the first day of summer holidays. I remember as a teenage devouring this entire series. It then became a tradition for me to read the series every summer. As I grew older I found myself identifying with different parts of the books, different characters. Now as an adult I’d be really interested to go back and read them again.

Are there any books you guys like to re read every summer?


In other news I got two more ARCs to read from NetGalley that I would like to share with you guys.

The first is The Last of the Firedrakes by Farah Oomerbhoy and the second is The Santa Klaus Murder by Mavis Hay.

The cover of this looks amazing, the story looks great too. I will be posting a review when I get around to reading it.

I am a real sucker for cozy mysteries and British books. I love that this is a classic like mystery, British AND Christmasy! I will post a review when I finish reading it.

That’s all for now, happy reading!

First book off of NetGalley

So I’m pretty excited. Yesterday I joined NetGalley (all book readers should check this out!). It’s basically a website that can let you read advance copies of books coming out. It is up to the publisher on who they send copies to (all copies are e-books) and it depends on many factors.

Anyway I was just pre-approved for my first book, Cocktails at Le Carmen by Isabelle Andover. Here is the blurb about the book which can be found on goodreads:

When job cuts at Chloe Saddler’s London communications firm result in an unexpected transfer to Paris, she finds herself leaving behind her friends, family, and boyfriend Scott to start a new life in the City of Light. Getting to grips with La Vie Parisienne and keeping a long-distance relationship afloat is not made any easier by the culture shock. Committing the odd French faux pas and inadvertently indulging in a few too many flirtations with her very sexy (and very taken) boss, Jean-Luc, is just the start of it. Factor in her bridezilla of a sister’s wedding (the hottest event of the year in the Saddler family’s social calendar), an unexpected session of hot, naked yoga, a slightly psychotic stalker, and one incredible kiss at an infamous Montmartre nightspot, and Chloe can say au revoir to her old, safe London life and bonjour to the romance, splendour, and glamour of Paris.

It looks really good and I’m about to dive in tonight πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to share with you all about it!
