Me on This Week's Book Week (16)

Hello again, people, and hello to the new people who have come from the big list in the Stacking the Shelves post at Tynga's Reviews. :) This is mostly the same thing, except without a witty title. The title will change in September after I'm back from a trip.

Two weeks until I'm in New York. *spaz-flail face* What am I forgetting to do? I need to go to a bunch of places before, print out a bunch of addresses and flight info, get my passport out. I figure we'll take a taxi to and from the airports and either walk or take the subway for the rest of it.

Wooooo, book camp. *flops over* Book camp can be lots of fun but there can be some panic moments in there, too. And some exhaustion. I was so tired the last couple of days. The fun thing is I was a nerd and made buttons of book covers. :) Well, I was a neurotic nerd and made 3 buttons with The Raven Boys cover because I had picture size and placement issues. *sigh* I'm such a nerd. Still, they're all pretty. :)

You know that face you make when you tell someone how good a book was? That mouth open in a small circle semi-pout gush face? I totally made that face in front of Eileen Cook when I said how good The Raven Boys was. I'm such a nerd. How do you put up with me?

I am very afraid that all the e-galleys I have to read will give me horrible screen vision and my eyes will go all broken and stuff. *sigh*

So, how was your week? :)
Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook (Eileen was one of the workshop leaders at the book camp this past week and was awesome (at least for the morning my group was with her). Since I've read Unraveling Isobel but don't have a copy, I bought this and got Eileen to sign it at book camp.)

Adaptation by Malinda Lo (from Hachette Book Group Canada through NetGalley)
The Diviners by Libba Bray (from Hachette Book Group Canada through NetGalley)
Spookygirl: Paranormal Investigator by Jill Baguchinsky (from Penguin Canada)
