Genie's Weekly News (42)

Sunday, 6 September 2015

I missed last week's installment, so there are a lot of things happening in this one! With STRAY feels abound, as well as a whole heap of new books to add to my shelves, things have been quite busy over here. So without further ado...

*Reading Right Now*


I'm reading this series in preparation for the blog tour happening this month!

*Previous Posts*

*Recommendation of the Week*


What can I say? It's historical fiction by Kate Forsyth at her finest. LOVED.

*From The Interwebs*


The Tribe series by Ambelin Kwaymullina - I'm so excited to read this series, especially with the 'Indigenous Futurism' influence'

Invisibility by Andrea Cremer/David Levithan and The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle - I got these through #booksfortradeAU by swapping with Michelle @LovelyGirlReads and can't wait to read them...eventually. In any case, I've been wanting to read The Infinite Moment of Us for aaages so now I finally can.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray - This is a monster of a book (it's huge peoples), but since loving The Diviners I hope I enjoy this one too. Thanks Allen and Unwin for the review copy!

The Last Girl/The Last Shot by Michael Adams - Thanks to Chiara @EternalDelicacy for these books through #booksfortradeAU! Yay for Aussie YA post-apocalyptic fiction - I can tell these are gritty reads.

Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller - Another swap with Chiara, and I've also had this on my TBR for a long time so I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations.

The Next Together by Lauren James - Thanks to Walker Books for this ARC! Two people falling in love throughout time - how romantic. I'm really looking forward to this one!

The River and The Book by Alison Croggon/Atmospheric by Carole Wilkinson - These are more books from Walker Books focusing on human rights and the environment respectively. 

*STRAY Discussion*


For those of you who have read STRAY by Rachael Craw, a quick reminder that there's a discussion on goodreads where you can share how you felt (with spoilers) because OMG SO MUCH HAPPENED.

If you're interested and need an outlet to chat with other fans, here's the link:

*What I've Been Watching*

Since I've been sick with a cold, I've been searching on Netflix for things to watch while nursing a cup of tea, and this came up (ironic huh?). I still don't know exactly how I feel about it after watching the two seasons (warning - it can be both comedic, gory and depressing all at the same time), but Daniel Radcliffe was certainly interesting in this role.

So - how has your week been?


  1. You're reading Ashala Wolf? YAY!!! I LOVE that series!!!!
    And I finished reading The Next Together earlier today...absolutely ADORED it! Matt and Kate were just so adorable.

    1. That's great to hear Cassie - I hope I love it too! I could see from your tweets that you really enjoyed The Next Together and now I'm really looking forward to starting it myself :)

  2. The Infinite Moment of Us and Where the Stars Still Shine were instant cover loves for me, which is why I had to read them both immediately. I was so happy to see how good they both were too. I hope you enjoy them, and all of your other new goodies as well! :)

    1. They do look so tempting! Thanks Lisa, I hope so too :)
