This Week's Book Week is pretty much like Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only without the smart and catchy name. :)
It's been a hard week for a lot of people. *hugs for everyone*
I'm seeing a bunch of RL friends tomorrow for our annual Christmas meet-up and Secret Santa present exchange. We're heading down to Stanley Park to wander around and see the Christmas lights. :) I might spam-tweet a bunch of pictures Sunday evening, so be warned.
I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson this week (I had an e-book copy from that time last year when the e-book was free for a little while and just now got around to reading it because I was bored and The Darkest Minds isn't something I wanted to start right before I went to bed because it's pretty big). I think I enjoyed it so much because I've been reading Maureen's tweets for the past year and a bit and the book constantly reminded me of Maureen. Of course, it also made me want to re-read The Name of the Star. I think next week and Christmas week will have a bunch of re-reading. :)
It's about 6 weeks until ALA Midwinter. It's not necessarily panic I'm feeling but more that I wish I knew some things, like about the hostel where Caitlin and her friends and her co-bloggers are planning to stay that I'm butting into (now, Caitlin did offer a spot in the room, but I still think I'm butting into their plans). Once I know what days out of the four they're going to be there, I can book a spot on a train or bus (no way I'm driving down into downtown Seattle again). Still, it's 6 weeks away.
Borrowed from the library:
The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson
The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
Received to review:
The Culling by Steven dos Santos
(from Flux through NetGalley) (I realize the title of this book borders on inappropriate, considering what happened yesterday in the US, but I requested
this book earlier in the week and I saw the approval e-mail Friday
morning before I saw the news. It seems to be a rather dark dystopian with an LGBT romance.)
