Weekly Latte Rewind is a weekly feature where we will recap posts, books read, books we received and other bookish stuff. We’ve linked to Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

 

GEN’S LIFE HAPPENINGS

  • I’ve been staying with my BF this whole week. One day, he surprised me and got me roses and pizza! I mean, what more can a girl ask for, right?
  • We also went to the beach and coconuts! Man, those coconuts were so cold, which made the drink more refreshing! When we got to the beach, it was deserted. We went on a weekday during work hours so yay for that! It was just for the two of us and it was so good. We both needed that relaxing time at the beach.
  • My friend gave me her recipe to make crepes from scratch so I’ve been making them this week!
  • My BF and I went to see one of the gold PR flags and took a bunch of pictures there. It was really fun!

 

GEN’S HAUL

for review

Thanks to my lovely mom for taking pictures of the books I got this week!

PHYSICAL ARCS + UNSOLICITED

SOLICITED: I got THE LAKE, which I’m so excited to read! I also got a sampler of BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME! (Thanks Bloomsbury!) | I was contacted to review THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC and the premise sounds really good and the cover is gorgeous! (Thanks Disney-Hyperion!) | I finally got my copy of VIOLET GRENADE! (Thanks Entangled Teen!)

UNSOLICITED: Intermix sent me a bound manuscript of ILLEGAL CONTACT! It’s an M/M Romance that I’ve heard wonders about so I can’t wait to read it. | St. Martin’s Press is awesome and they are always sending me copies of books I could be interested in. This time, they sent me BEST INTENTIONS, which truly sounds amazing. They also sent me STOLEN MARRIAGE, which sounds good but not sure if I’ll pick it up anytime soon. | Lake Union sent me three books that actually sound really good and I’ll definitely be reading: STILLHOUSE LAKEEVERYTHING WE KEEP, and EVERYTHING WE LEFT BEHIND.

BOOKSTAGRAM TOURSI got finished copies of THE NAMES THEY GAVE US and BAD ROMANCE for their Bookstagram tours. I’m so loving them!

eARCs

I’m so excited for all of these! I’ll be starting This Is Dangerous extremely soon because I need my Logan and Kayla fix! | I can’t wait for this new Renee Carlino book. After loving the last two books she published with Atria Books, I’ve been wanting to read more (I’m not counting Lucian Divine, which was horrible). | Mask of Shadows was being offered to the first 500 readers as a Read Now option, and after reading the summary, I had to request it. Plus, that cover!

bought

I had to buy these two after reading the first book. I need to binge-read these!

 

GEN’S WEEK IN READING

 

Final Girls was so freaking good!! I highly recommend it. Say You’ll Stay is truly wonderful. I can’t recommend this enough.

    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

  • I can’t wait to hear what you think of Wish You Were Here!!! 😀

  • Laurel-Rain Snow

    Great photos! I have Stillhouse Lake, but haven’t read it yet. I must get a copy of The Stolen Marriage. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and have a great week.

  • So jealous of that haul! I want bookmail! XD haha

  • I love Rachel Caine to the moon and back so I hope you read and like Stillhouse Lake. I am so curious about Violet Grenade, too.

    I love all your pictures, too!! I’d love to see all the historic parts of PR. So beautiful 🙂

    Have a great week!!!

  • Omg CREPES! Please send some my way! XD Those are some awesome books this week too! I’ve heard good things about Mask of Shadows! I hope you love all of them and have a great week!

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!

  • I am glad you and the BF had a nice beach day. I just got back from Europe, and in France, the people I was with had crepes every day! I couldn’t because I can’t have gluten, but real crepes in France are apparently worth dying for! Your pictures of PR are amazing. I went once when I was 18, but I would love to go back some day!

  • Mmmmmm, pizza and roses. Now I want pizza. 😀 What’s the tower in that one picture? The PR flags excursion you mentioned? I looooove towers. And old architecture. Architecture in general. o_o I hope you have a great week, Gen! =)

  • Savanah | Off-Color Literature

    I got Mask of Shadows too! I can’t wait to read it. Congrats on all your ARC’s! It’s so cool that you get so much physical book mail!

  • I hope you enjoy Mask of Shadows and all of your other books 🙂 I love crepes, I often make them on the weekends! Amazing post, thanks for sharing!

    Brittany @ Brittany’s Book Rambles

  • Nice book haul! You have a lot of reading ahead of you. 🙂

    I love crepes especially with savory fillings.

    Hope you have a great week!

  • Your relaxing beach day sounds amazing. I love coconut drinks. They always taste so much better for some reason! And being the only people on the beach sounds wonderful and relaxing. Glad you had a great week! I’ve seen so many people talking about THE NAMES THEY GAVE US. I really like Emery Lord but I wasn’t sold on this one. After seeing all the rave, though, I think I’m going to have to give it a shot.

  • aww…pizza and roses are such a nice gesture!! Looks like you have been having a blast with your man.
