50 Book Pledge Weekly Roundup: January 16-20

Happy weekend, Savvy Readers! I hope you all had a wonderful week (didn’t it just fly by!?) and that you have exciting (reading) plans for the weekend. We had such a fun week with so many great books being released and more fun stuff.


Check it all out below!

The 50 Book Pledge

This week, we reached over 4,000 pledgers! And it’s STILL only January! We’ve also read over 10,400 books! We’re here to blow 2017 out of the park, eh?!


This Week’s Featured Read


This week’s Featured Read was Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson. We’ve definitely started double-checking the locks on our doors since reading this one (which makes it a good book, because it’s stuck with us and taught us important lessons, right?!). Kate Priddy switches apartments with her cousin for a change of atmosphere. But soon after, she makes a shocking discovery… her next-door neighbour has been murdered. And the danger Kate has imagined isn’t nearly as twisted and deadly as what’s about to happen.

Our fellow readers this week come from the HCC First Look program. See what they thought here!
