Me on This Week's Book Week (61)

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. ;)

I should put up some kind of disclaimer that I'll be complaining about the sun and the heat and the no rain as long as it's sunny and hot and not rainy. Here's week whatever (maybe 3 or 4) of my complaint. It's nice, sure, but things are starting to dry out.

Also. Anyone else experiencing Comic Con envy right now? ;)

I'm slowly getting back into reading after that weird span of me not really wanting to read anything. Of course, reading a book I've read about 3 times already this year instead of reading a review book isn't helping. Ooooops. ;)

On Wednesday I headed out to Richmond to meet Amanda Sun and Elsie Chapman and to see Jeyn Roberts again (I first met her about a year ago). *hugs for Canadian YA authors* It was so nice to finally meet Elsie and Amanda, they're both so much fun and so sweet. They didn't mention anything spoilery for their next books, Elsie's Divided out next February and Amanda's currently untitled book 2 out sometime next spring/early summer, but there was a lot of visiting Japan talk. It sounds nice there. And look! An actual picture. :) Elsie is on the left, Amanda is on the right (holding the special-made contest prize Tomo-pony).
No write-up for the event, it was rather informal, just the authors standing at tables with their books to be walked up to by customers walking into the store (right behind me taking the picture is the entrance). I sort of thought there'd be a talking or reading, but no. But this kind of set-up made it easy for me to talk with Amanda and Elsie for almost 90 minutes. :)

Back to two reviews this week! :) This week will feature reviews of Indelible by Dawn Metcalf (Tuesday) and Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike (Friday). :)
Dualed by Elsie Chapman
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten (from Random House Canada through NetGalley)


  1. You seem to be one of the many people who have acquired Lola & the Boy Next Door. That's totally awesome and I think I need to get this one soon.

  2. Oh I really want Dualed, it's been on my wishlist for o long. Lola wasn't as good as Anna, but good nonetheless!

    My Haul

  3. You will love Lola and the Boy.
    I've also heard mixed things on Dualed. Hopefully you'll enjoy that one.
    Enjoy all your lovely books! (:

    My STS

  4. Stephanie Perkins is just fantastic! Anna's my favorite, but Lola made for a good second book. I can't wait for Isla!
