Me on This Week's Book Week (32)

This Week's Book Week is like Stacking the Shelves at Tynga's Reviews only not as cleverly named. ;)

Happy post-holiday fun times! :) And birthday fun times, if you're like me and have an end of the year holiday birthday.

Christmas was fun like always. My birthday was fun like always. Presents ranged from books (yay) and clothes (yay for a new sweater) to a calendar (paintings of women reading) and Starbucks mugs and a gorgeous emerald green leather purse from my mom. My other purse had an accident a couple weeks ago, while I was Christmas shopping, so it was a last minute addition to my list.

The Underrated YA Books of 2012 post went up on Thursday. Here's the link for you to check out. Maybe you'll add a few new books to your to read list for the new year. :)

I was looking up some books with late winter and spring release dates for ALA midwinter and I got all nervous in anticipation. Not long now, it's about 4 weeks away.

I saw Cassandra Clare's coming back to BC in March for the tour for Clockwork Princess. Hopefully I won't be broken this time around. ;) It's a wristband event and I saw what the process to get one is on the Chapters site: on the 19th (the book release date) you go to the store where the signing will be, buy a copy of the book, get one of the 400 wristbands, and then you get to come back on the 26th and get your book signed. Apparently, people can come and watch the event, but you need a wristband to get books signed. Well, I know where I'll be in the morning of the 19th and for a good chunk of the 26th.

Happy (early) new year. :)
Legend by Marie Lu
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Crossed by Ally Condie
Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
(Oh, finished hardcover copies, how I love you. I should mention that I've read and reviewed all these already, but I reread Incarnate and plan to reread Legend and Under the Never Sky before reading the sequels that come out in January.)

And a signed bookplate for The Raven Boys from Maggie Stiefvater and Scholastic Canada. This showed up in the mail on the 24th. :)


  1. Great new books!! I absolutely ADORED Legend! And I've heard amazing things about Days of Blood & Starlight but I haven't read either book myself *hides*

  2. Oh a lot of great books, I hope you'll enjoy them all. Happy reading!

  5. I loved Under the Never Sky. That one is easily in my top five favorite books of last year. I still need to read Legend and Incarnate.

    I enjoyed Crossed even though I know several people who didn't.

    Great haul!
