Me on This Week's Book Week (70)

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 might be updating this post later today because I'm off at a blogger/pub meetup with awesome teen publicity girls Crystal and Melissa from Raincoast Books (plus others). I wonder what awesome winter releases will be discussed (5 bucks says Cress), or if first we'll gush about some fall ones like Fangirl or Vicious. :)

If you're interested in the latest Goodreads drama... feel free to Google it. As far as I know, none of my reviews or shelves have been deleted, but I avoid drama like the plague. I'm at Riffle and BookLikes, if you've moved to either site, but I don't know how often I'll be there. As always, Twitter is the best place to talk to me. :)

Reviews for this coming week will feature Inheritance by Malinda Lo (Tuesday, LGBTQ sci-fi) and Vicious by Victoria Schwab (Friday, adult paranormal superhero thriller with YA crossover appeal). Also, on Thursday I'll be starting a new 'segment' called Books I've Never Reviewed. It's the home for all those books you read and never had the time to review. :)
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (Oh finished copy, how gorgeous are you. Crossing my fingers that I'll get to get it signed when Maggie's at the Van Writers Fest in a month.)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (I'm so jealous of you Toronto people that get Rainbow visiting in early October. I enjoyed this book so much.)
Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce (from Scholastic Canada)
Sorrow's Knot by Erin Bow (from Scholastic Canada) (Canadian author :))
The Opposite of Geek by Ria Voros (from Scholastic Canada) (another Canadian author :))
Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender (from Scholastic Canada)
Kobo Aura (from Kobo) (I was so surprised when a large box showed up, but then I opened it and found a gift basket inside. I'll be fiddling around with it, trying it out and seeing what's different from the Kobo Aura HD I was sent earlier in the year, but since I'm still using and enjoying the previous one, this new one's with my mom.)

UPDATE! So the Raincoast Books Winter Preview was so much fun. I didn't get Cress (they only had 2 ARCs that went quickly) but I got a bunch of other amazing books. I'm not going to write out all the titles, I think you can see them all from the picture.
Of course, now I have 2 copies of Fangirl. Oops.


  1. Nice. I love seeing what people get. Marie Antoinette:Serial Killer looks funny. FanGirl by Rainbow Rowell looks really good. Come check out my haul as well.

    Books of Love

  2. Fangirl was cute! Not as amazing as Eleanor and Park, but I'd say it's pretty close. I'm reading Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer and so far it's been everything I've expected, so I'm happy! I hope you enjoy your books!

  3. What a great package from Scholastic! I am dying to read a few of those titles

  4. Glad you enjoyed Fangirl - I'm really looking forward to reading it.
