Me on This Week's Book Week (20)

This Week's Book Week is my uncleverly-titled thing that's pretty much the same as Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews. :)

Hello. I miss talking to you people. But not when you say "I hope you really enjoy that book" when it's a finished copy I bought of an advance copy I've already reviewed. Hmmmmm. Maybe I should start linking to reviews if I get a finished copy.

I'm headed out to Word on the Street tomorrow, because that's when it is in Vancouver. This weekend (as opposed to last weekend in Toronto). I think I'm going to wander around tomorrow for as long as I can before I get bored or lonely or buy too many books. ;) Now sure what I'll get, since there's going to be a bunch of different authors there, some YA, but we'll see. Whatever I get will probably go up in next week's post. :)

My sister's been knitting a bunch of stuff, like hats and now a sweater. It kinda makes me wish I knew how to crochet more than scarves and blankets. ;) Those are easy. Knitting in a circle to make a sweater that includes cap sleeves and a button hole? It looks so complicated, but she knows how to make it work. *sigh*

It's a three review week this week with posts on Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills, Velveteen by Daniel Marks, and Mystic City by Theo Lawrence going up. :) Now, I'm off to read.
Starling by Lesley Livingston
Rage Within by Jeyn Roberts
Received to review:
Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally (from Raincoast Books)
Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride (from Raincoast Books)
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (from Raincoast Books) (It's going to be hard to keep from reading this one.)
