Me on This Week's Book Haul (8)

Sorry about the lack of reviews this past week. I needed a break and I had no review buffer. Well, I had a couple unposted reviews, but you guys know me. The earliest before the release date that I'll post a review is about 2 weeks. I wasn't about to post reviews in mid-June for books coming out in August.

Earlier today was Richelle Mead's signing in Burnaby for The Golden Lily. An event recap post will go up either tomorrow or on Monday. All the bloggers were there. Well, no. Some of the bloggers were there. ;) I'd hoped to pick up a copy of This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers but they didn't have any.

I've been in such a slump lately, and it's bugging the *#@^ out of me. Like, I have books to read, and I have books to read to review, but it takes me a bit to get into them. *sigh* I'm going to the library on Monday, maybe I'll find some good stuff. Give me some recs, people. YA and maybe some MG and graphic novels and even some manga.

And, if you're at ALA this weekend or happen to have an extra, I'll like/love you forever and pay you back if you've got a spare ARC of The Raven Boys. If not, no worries. :)
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead (bought at the event so it's all signed and pretty, and I got my copy of Vampire Academy signed)

The Girl with Borrowed Wings by Rinsai Rossetti (from Penguin Canada/Razorbill) (When it arrived, I wasn't sure why it was sent, then I realized that the Razorbill site has that 'Get It First' page where you can request an advance copy and people are randomly picked to get their choice and this was the book I picked.)

To review: Spark, Endlessly, The Goddess Legacy, Touched, Scarlett Dedd, The Blood Keeper, Blackwood, Shift, Unspoken, Yesterday, Velveteen, Romeo RedeemedMeant to Be, Tune and Altered. :)
