What should you expect? Every Thursday I’ll post a list of new books I’ve received through publishers or I’ve purchased myself. I will also include a portion about my activities in the book community that are especially exciting or “bookish” in my opinion.
I recently joined a Postcards Exchange Group on Goodreads. The group features itself as an “International group of people who love reading and mail”. Each month the group is tasked to send a post card to someone (or everyone!) in the group with a cute,book themed message. Ive already received one adorable post card in the mail this month and should be receiving another. I love how this group utilizes snail mail and also incorporates a love of reading!The Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read Along is an event hosted at The Book Addicts Guide for readers who wish to re-read or start reading The Lunar Chronicles before the new installment Winter is released in the fall. Considering I’ve had The Lunar Chronicles on my Kindle account for awhile now, it seems like a good idea to finally read it.

Plus, The Book Addict’s Guide has TONS of Lunar Chronicle swag to give away to US participants!
| by Roland Smith: NetGalley.I remember reading and loving the Everest series by Gordon Korman as a teenager. I have long desired to read another book like it so when I found Peak I was intrigued. A book about a teenager who climbs Everest with a climbing troupe sounds just as fun as the original.
After fourteen-year-old Peak Marcello is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, he’s left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or go live with his long-lost father, who runs a climbing company in Thailand. But Peak quickly learns that his father’s renewed interest in him has strings attached. Big strings. As owner of Peak Expeditions, he wants his son to be the youngest person to reach the Everest summit–and his motives are selfish at best. Even so, for a climbing addict like Peak, tackling Everest is the challenge of a lifetime. But it’s also one that could cost him his life.
Roland Smith has created an action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice, family, and the drive to take on Everest, despite the incredible risk. The story of Peak’s dangerous ascent—told in his own words—is suspenseful, immediate, and impossible to put down.
