Fresh on the Shelf - January 2019 Book Releases + Book Giveaway

Happy New Year, Cupcakes!

How was everyone's winter holiday?

I celebrated Christmas with family but, sadly, rang in the New Year with a sprained ankle (not fun!)
Luckily, I had plenty of books to keep me company, and had fun doing some binge reading. My binge read included The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan, The Wicked King by Holly Black, and Kakuriyo (vol.1) by Midori Yuma. Additionally, this Christmas I received a plethora of manga and books, both romance and young adult, and can't wait to binge read those, as well!

During December I did plenty of movie watching (ahem...AQUAMAN!) and sight-seeing. Below, is a video I edited and shared on Instagram of an incredible light display at someone's home in Toronto. Dubbed the "Desario House", they annually decorate their home in epic light displays and ask for visitors to offer a donation to the Sick Kid's Foundation. This was my first year seeing their light display.

Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Sarai has lived and breathed nightmares since she was six years old.
She believed she knew every horror and was beyond surprise.
She was wrong.

Fresh on the Shelf - December 2018 Book Releases + Giveaway

Happy December, Cupcakes!🎄

I hope everyone had a lovely November, I know I certainly did!
I did plenty of reading, movie watching, and adventuring, most recently having seen the CP Holiday Train, which makes a yearly stop in Toronto. You can check out my short video below that I posted on Instagram - it was an absolute blast!

Anyways, is anyone else EXTREMELY excited for Queen of Air and Darkness? I pre-ordered the Indigo Book Box edition of Cassandra Clare's latest, and can't wait for it's arrival! It comes with a signed copy, a bookmark, tote bag, and mug - I can't wait! In addition to Queen of Air and Darkness, I also can't wait to read Kiss Collector, Evermore, and The Cursed Sea. All three titles are very high on my to-read list, here's hoping I have the time to review them!

Which of the following December 2018 book releases are you most excited for? Let me know!

See you in the New Year and.....

Happy Reading!📚
