The week of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has arrived. I think this pretty much eclipses any other releases scheduled for this week. It’s no wonder there are so few other titles to pick up at the bookstores. I did pre-order the paperback of Backlash though, so that’s something.
Three months ago I weighed in on the Kindle Oasis ahead of its release date. I noted the features I wished Amazon had announced and evaluated what they did announce. The Kindle Oasis wasn’t the ideal device that I wished for but in the end, I still decided to upgrade from my Kindle Paperwhite (2012).
In light of this week’s theme, Beach, of course I had to set out to the seaside. Actually I was hoping for a sunny day to capture a summery vacation mood. Alas, the weather didn’t agree with me. Instead, it was overcast with the constant threat of rain. Thankfully, the view was clear enough to see Malaysia on the horizon. So with the help of my sister I then managed to capture the moody waters to match the beautiful cover of The Passenger by Alexandra Bracken.
You’d think the summer months would be prime time for new young adult releases. Vacations beg for new books as readers kick back and enjoy some respite. In any case, there still might be books that capture your interest this week. If not, I’m sure TBR (to be read) piles aren’t complaining back home.
In order to take this week’s photo for the Nature theme, I brought out The Chimes by Anna Smaill into the green. Rather than pay attention to the content of the book, I was more concerned with the aesthetic. The cover is bright and the colours pop, as do flowers in the wild. Although, it does feature the waters, which is essential to sustain nature.
