Genie's Weekly News (46)

Sunday, 22 November 2015

Well it certainly has been more than a week since my last weekly news update, but I'm finally back with another one. I haven't gotten back into blogging as quickly as I would have liked firstly due to adjusting to my new post-HSC working/life in general schedule and also because my old laptop went kaput. I'm looking for a new replacement, though in the meantime I have to use the shared one which means I can't post as often as I'd like. That aside, I'm looking forward to blog-hopping more again (oh how I miss seeing all your fabulous new posts!) and writing more of my own.

*Reading Right Now*


Basically - loving it so far!
*Recommendation of the Week*


What can I say? This sequel was just as awesome as the first book, and full of even more twists!

*From The Interwebs*


Thank you to HarperCollins, Holly and Elspeth for these!
My two most anticipated reads from this haul are definitely arc's of Passenger and Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club! I've loved what Alexandra Bracken has written so far and this new novel of hers has a promising premise! As for the other, I love historical fiction, and this one is by an Australian author as well. Said to be "Buffy x Pride and Prejudice" I can't wait to see how it turns out!

*Recent Events*

Friday night was BTCYA held by the lovely people at HarperCollins Australia! Tim and Amanda did another wonderful job at hosting, and I can definitely say that next year will be filled with some really exciting releases in the YA world! From fantasy to historical, heartbreaking contemporaries and thrilling stories - there will be awesome novels coming from every direction. I'm going to a Sarah J. Maas event this week (!!!) so that is definitely something to look forward to.

*New Facebook Page*

I've just made a facebook page for Genie In A Book where you can catch up on my latest posts and other bookish news from me. You can check it out here!

What's the last amazing book you read?


  1. So glad to have you on Facebook! It's fantastic seeing your bookish updates there. It sounds like you had a great time at BTCYA, it was so much fun seeing the tweets and hearing of all the books.

    1. It's a good way to keep in touch, and up to date with all the bookish news of course! :) It was a fantastic event, and always good to get the bookish community together.
