Me on This Week's Book Week (57)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

It's summertime... for the most part. :) And I only got one book this week, but it's a good one. ;)

Looks like it was cover reveal explosion time this week. I like seeing new covers, but that's about it. I don't quite get the need for big hooplas. But I guess it's business, publishers do a big reveal in order to start early early buzz and interest. My favourites have to be Wayfarer by Lili St. Crow and Let the Storms Break by Shannon Messenger. :)

I've been thinking if I need a new layout here at Me on Books. It's been the same one since I started back in October of 2010 and I wonder if it looks a bit outdated. Hmmm. Maybe I just need a button or an icon, like a circle with the blog background as the background and 'Me on Books' on top. Nothing fancy, you know. Hmmm. Must look into this. (Or, if anyone was bored...... ;))

So, Google Reader is going away soon. I added a button for Bloglovin where you can follow there (it's in the left sidebar, you might have to scroll down a bit). There's also the usual Follow by e-mail bit as well as the standard bookmarking the site and checking back on posting days (which are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays (unless something's come up)). :)

Reviews for this coming week will be on Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey (Tuesday) and When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney (Friday). :) (Do you like knowing which reviews are coming out on which day? Should I keep doing this?)
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (from Kathy who picked up a copy for me at BEA and also sent some of the cards for Vicious)


  1. I am glad it arrived safely! Don't you love the trading cards Victoria made? She's so crazy talented. I can't wait to see what you think of The Dream Thieves.

  2. OMG!! I am sooooo jealous! I wish I'd had someone at BEA to grab a copy of The Dream Thieves for me, that is the one book that I wish I'd gotten more than anything! That is an awesome haul all in itself.

  3. I really want to check this series out though I haven't started it yet. I love Maggie Stiefvater!

  5. Ok, I am ridiculously jealous of this one!! AHHH! I can't wait to get my hands on this one! TOO COOL! LOVED book 1! Happy reading.
