Me on This Week's Book Week (15)

Hello new and old people who read my ramblings. :) It's sort of like a Stacking the Shelves post like what Tynga has only not as cleverly named. I might change the name soon to avoid confusion. :)

3 weeks until I'm off in New York. It's starting to feel weird and pressure-y. I need to do a bunch of stuff before we go. And read so many e-galleys.

Last weekend was so brutally hot. Like warm, thick, heavy air hot. This meant the Lower Mainland complained all weekend about the abnormal temperature. It happens once a year, maybe every year. It's not like this is Toronto where it's humid and gross for weeks and thunderstorms only make it worse. I found it funny when people here were complaining about those few days, then stopped Monday when it cooled off. Geez. Then there was an awesome lightning storm Tuesday night, like the longest thunderstorm in a while. There was one time a few years ago when the sky went all dark and purple and rumbly, that was pretty cool. The sky wasn't as dark this time, but there was lots of lightning. :)

Book camp starts on Monday, which means I'll be downtown all week at the happiest... the nerdiest place in Vancouver. ;) Odds are there will be tweets about the library, pictures of the library (it's famous, it's been in TV shows like Fringe and movies like ones I can't think of), and pictures of all the buttons I'm going to make with the button-maker. :) It's so cool, I'll make buttons of book covers and look like a total nerd while doing it. Achievement unlocked. ;)

*sigh* I'm such a nerd.

Oh, Crewel is up on NetGalley, if anyone's interested. It's a really interesting book, all complicated and suspicious and glamourous and complicated and secretive. I really need to re-read it once I get my ARC back.

No new reviews next week. There also won't be reviews while I'm in New York, which sucks because it's looking like I'll need to post 3 reviews per week for the 3 weeks after I'm back. Stupid e-galleys with release dates of late September and early October. *big sigh* But I'm off to another baseball game tonight, complete with fireworks this time.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (borrowed from Jess, it finally showed up)

The Mephisto Kiss by Trinity Faegan (from Egmont through NetGalley)
(You) Set Me on Fire by Mariko Tamaki (from Penguin Canada as part of a blog tour)
