Genie's Weekly News (48)

Sunday, 3 April 2016

So in seeing this post, you may well be thinking:

Well, it definitely hasn't been a week since my last wrap-up like this, but it's good to be back! While settling into a new routine with uni starting and life being busy in general, I know that this blog has taken a back seat a little. However, I have missed posting here, and want to be more active on the blogosphere in general again. I'll be doing my best :)

*Reading Right Now*


It's they type of psychological thriller where at the moment I can see that there's something definitely brewing in terms of the suspense, but it hasn't it the 'creepy' stage yet. That being said, I'm pretty hooked and want to see what happens next.

*Recommendation of the Week*


I loved Gone Girl, and since I've heard good things about this one I thought I'd give it a try. Although perturbing and unflinching insight into a macabre situation, it is still compulsively readable and definitely worth checking out if you're a thriller fan.

*From The Interwebs*

There's a new book bloogger joining our Aussie community! Holly's a fellow bookseller and bookworm , and I can't wait to read more of her posts here.

Thanks so much to HarperCollins Australia for these review copies!
This is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang - This is one of my most anticipated contemporary releases of the year, and since Falling Into Place was so emotional and beautifully written, I hope this one lives up!

The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry - Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres and apparently Julie Berry's first novel All The Truth That's In Me was a big hit, so I'm excited for this one.

*AusYA Bloggers and Readers Group Announcement*

I'm sure a few of you have seen it already, but for those who haven't, there's been a rebranding and redesign of our Facebook group, and we now have a twitter account @AusYABloggers 

How has your week been?

  4. I hope uni is going well for you!!! It's definitely a big change haha. But omg I so need to read This is Where the World's been getting really negative reviews but hello it's Amy Zhang.

    Also, loving the rebranding of the Aus YA Bloggers :D

    1. Same to you! It certainly is. I've seen some negative things about it as well, but I'm hoping I love it!
