Pearls Before Swine




Most Exciting Book Mail

Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes, #2) Wolf By Wolf (Wolf By Wolf, #1) Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between Every Breath (Every #1)

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch: I’m so excited for this sequel and am so thankful to HarperTeen for sharing it with me!
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: This is one of my most anticipated books for the rest of this year and I can’t wait to read it! Jaime from Fic Fare sent this and Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between to me and I’m so thankful!
Every Breath by Ellie Marney: I purchased this one because it’s a Sherlock reimagining that so many people are raving about. I can’t be left out! I hope I love it!

It was also like Christmas on Edelweiss last week. I went a little crazy and downloaded all of these winter HarperTeen books!

Sword and Verse The Girl from Everywhere A Study in Charlotte The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1) Flamecaster (Shattered Realms, #1)

Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan * The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig * A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro * The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine * Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

Favorite August Reads

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) Everything, Everything A Curious Tale of the In-Between (Pram, #1)

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff * Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon * A Curious Tale of the In-Between by Lauren DeStefano

I highly recommend looking into each of these books and putting them on your To Read lists immediately. I loved them all.

Coming Up in September

Holy crap, September?!?! I haven’t even thought about September at all. At least nothing really past Queen of Shadows. But I do have a few tour stops happening here next month that I’m pretty excited about and hopefully a lot of reviews that I’ll be catching up on from August that I just didn’t write or post. I will also have my regular September New Release Giveaway as well as a giveaway for Banned Books Week. So there should be a lot of great stuff coming up!

I hope you guys all had a great August and a great end of summer. We had a great summer here and I still can’t even really believe that it’s over. We’re homeschooling this year which makes our schedule slightly different but so far we’ve loved it and the flexibility it has offered us. Plus, the kids are still participating in one class each at their old school so they still see their friends every day. It’s pretty much the best of both worlds! We still ended up with beginning of the school year colds though, even we couldn’t escape that.

Fall is my favorite season and I’m so excited that it’s just about here! Beautiful colors, great clothes, cooler temperatures, and none of the stupid humidity of summer! I hope you guys are looking forward to September! At least we know a lot of great books are coming our way!
