Books I have received to review this week:

The Art of Letting Go is a blog tour I signed up for, I heard the words NA and I was in!
Stay With Me is from NetGalley and why yes it is another NA.
Girl on Tour thanks to Caisey Quinn. I loved Girl with Guitar and can’t wait to read more about my old friends and see what trouble they get into on tour.
Waiting on the Sidelines is a contemporary, coming of age YA from NetGalley.
Bit of a mix this week! When I say my book motto is anything goes, I’m not joking 🙂
Books I have bought this week:
Just one this week. One very highly anticipated book!
And I was so impatient all week as it was released on Tuesday but despite stalking amazon all day, it wasn’t available for purchase. I went into full fangirl meltdown as you can see! Thanks to Rachel for being so awesome and for promising to send me swag as well <3
So that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
