Renegades by Marissa Meyer (Calendar Girls Readalong Announcement Post & Sign-Up)

RENEGADES readalong post banner final VERSION 3 B.png

Welcome to the third Calendar Girls readalong! If this is the first time that you’re hearing (or rather, reading) about Calendar Girls, you can find out more about the blog event here. But basically, it’s an event that we my co-host, Melanie and myself, host once a month, and included in the event is a monthly Twitter chat, and also a readalong to go along with the month’s pre-chosen theme! Since November’s theme is “Best End of a Series,” and it would have been close to impossible to find a book at the end of a series that everyone happens to have been following was impossible, we decided to do a theme-less readalong this month. Also, due to panicking at the thought of adding another book to my reading list for November, I decided to simply share the books I was already planning to read as options, and you all voted (Calendar Girls through the private poll, as well anonymous voters in a poll that I threw up on Twitter)…and here we are! If you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments below, or contact me privately through my Contact page, or  by DMing me on Twitter (@flavbibliophile)!

#ARCstravaganza (#6): Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

It’s Monday again! How does time go by so quickly? Seriously. Anyway, even though Kyrsti has already featured this book in one of her posts (check it out here), I couldn’t help but feature it as well. Especially since the publication date (August 29th) is coming up quick! I’ve been so excited for this book, and I wasn’t sure until a few days ago (when it came in the mail), whether I would get a copy of this for review or not. I’m pretty sure there are a million holds on the one copy which my library will be getting, so I don’t know when I would have gotten around to reading and reviewing it for you guys if that were the case. So, yay!

I also have a bit of news for you (in the case that you have no read my previous #ARCstravaganza posts). While this meme was created by Krysti at YA and Wine, and hosted by her, and Sarah at The Clever Reader, due to personal circumstances they have had to let it go. But then Krysti came to its rescue when she asked me if I wanted to take over the meme, and I said yes!
