Me on This Week's Book(less) Week (66)

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. ;)

No books this week. :( Oh, well. It's been a while since I've had a bookless week, I figure I'm due. ;)

Summer is still here. It sucks a bit, things are dry, lawns are brown and brittle, flowers are thirsty. Upside: the lawn doesn't need a lot of mowing. Downside: when it does, it's hot out.

Do you guys get anxious when you loan books to people? I kind of have that right now, but it's my own doing. Someone's borrowing my ARC of The Dream Thieves and I'm waiting for them to be done so I can pick it up. It's my own fault, I had it and said she could read it and then let me know when she was done so I could get it back from her. But that doesn't stop me from hoping it doesn't come back to me all battered.

Reviews for the upcoming week will feature All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill (Tuesday) and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (Friday). :)

Since it's a bookless week, here's what I've been reading. :)
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Again. ;)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. Finally, something fresh and new and vampires. Well, not so new if you've read the short story in the The Eternal Kiss anthology. ;)
Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock. Back to Mac and Amy's ghost appearing in cryptic dreams.
Inheritance by Malinda Lo. I love this duology, it and last fall's Adaptation. It's an intriguing look at encounters, at adolescence, at sexuality, and the other. And it's a sci-fi thriller with aliens. Whoever said you couldn't have an LGBTQ sci-fi thriller should read these books. :)


  1. Inheritance sounds brilliant!

  2. Great haul! I still have to pick up the first books to both of these sequels. I hope you enjoy. :)

  4. That Dream Thieves again! I am still recovering from the pain of being rejected by NG. Please continue reading for the both of us.
