Weekly Wrap-Up: 10 May 2019

Happy Friday!  I feel like my life is getting back to normal (see my April wrap-up post for more) and I'm finally reading again. This week has been a good one -- I read a bunch of books and am off to see Detective Pikachu after work.

My NetGalley TBR: A Selection

A confession: I'm terrible at keeping up with my NetGalley books. I can be super excited to read something, but ultimately I'm more tempted by physical books than eBooks. Despite this, I have some amazing stuff just waiting for me on my Kindle. I pulled a couple of titles here to not only show off the books I have, but to encourage me to pick them up.

Book Review: Before Mars by Emma Newman

I make no secret of the fact that Emma Newman is one of my favourite authors. I absolutely loved the first two books in her Planetfall series, Planetfall and After Atlas, so I had faith in the fact that I’d also love Before Mars. Each Planetfall book is a little different, and Before Mars is no exception with its gripping psychological thriller plot. I ended up absolutely adoring this book and falling back in love with the sci-fi genre, which I have been neglecting for a long time.

Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2019

It feels like an absolute age since I've been here, despite a couple posts sprinkled here and there throughout the month. Things have been so crazy lately between starting a new job, adjusting to a whole new commute, going through a terrible reading/blogging/BookTube slump, and generally planning and plotting other projects. Also, life. That gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it? I don't know if anyone noticed I was gone, but hey, I'm here now!

Book Review: My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately and needed something totally different to help claw my way out -- enter My So-Called Bollywood Life, a debut novel I learned about at an showcase event held by the publisher earlier this year. I don’t have a huge amount of experience with Bollywood films, although I absolutely love the four or five that I have seen (and am obsessed with the soundtracks of some I haven't seen), but I was incredibly curious to pick up this because it sounded so amazing. It turns out the My So-Called Bollywood Life was exactly what I needed to rediscover the joys of reading.
