Book Hoarders Anonymous (7)

This morning I drank a pumpkin spice latte, which means that despite it not being official…to me, AUTUMN IS HERE, BABY!! School is back in session, and the days are getting cooler. Did everyone have a nice summer? It was pretty quiet on the blog because I was enjoying my free time by reading ALL OF THE BOOKS and watching hours upon hours of Arrested Development (SPIIIICY CLUB SAUUUCE) and Doctor Who (it’s Tennant Time and OH BOY DO I LOVE HIM! ❤) So what has been happening? I got some awesome books this summer and it’s Classics Retold time! Let’s take a look!

The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley – Getting ready for Classics Retold!!

What Did You Miss?

I recapped the amazing trip to Book Expo America and that one time that I met Neil Gaiman and didn’t touch his hair

Brittany from The Book Addict’s Guide and I started a new blog that manages ARC tours and the #LitLush Twitter chat!

I reviewed a few books, my favorites being The Woodcutter by Kate Danley, and Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

What’s to Come?

As mentioned in my Classics Retold post, September is going to be dedicated to all things Robin Hood, though I will be sharing my thoughts on Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein, and book three in A Song of Ice and Fire (It was a doozy, that one!), among others. Stay tuned, we have some great things planned for you for the upcoming months!!

  1. I’m SUPER excited to read Her Dark Curiosity!!! I liked The Madman’s Daughter, but I think this one is going to be even more spectacular.
    Lovely haul!! Looks like you have some great reading ahead of you ❤

  2. Lots of good books! I’m gonna need Edelweiss to hurry up and approve me for some of these titles! 🙂

    I’ve never read Great Expectations but Havisham sounds AWESOME! I may have to check this one out!
