Me on This Week's Book Week (78)

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. ;)

More rain! More writing! Some reading. ;) Taking Sunday off writing again to get some reading done.

One last day to enter the 3 Years of Me on Books giveaway! Or just a few hours. It ends soon so hurry!

New Doctor Who next week! So excited. Also, does it bug anyone else when there's a Doctor Who reference in a book and they call it 'Dr. Who?' It drives me insane. He's not Dr, Who, PhD. He's the Doctor, the show is called Doctor Who. Also, Doctor Kawaii is the best. :)

The other day I asked on Twitter what I should read first between These Broken Stars (which I've had an e-galley of for a while) and Cress (which I just got an e-galley of on Wednesday), and a few people said Cress. It's not like I was unhappy, I really like the series. Now, if you're waiting to read Cress, or if you've already read it and now kicking yourself for not waiting so the wait for Winter wouldn't be as painful, I suggesting popping over to YouTube to check out RWBY (pronounced ruby). Yes, it's anime, but it's in English (done in the US) so no subtitles for people who hate subtitles. There are a lot of interesting characters, there's some good vs. evil fighting going on, and there are really cool fight scenes with girls kicking butt. And there's some fairy tale crossover for you retelling fans. ;) (try to start with the 4 preview trailers, not the volume 1 trailer)

This week will be the last one review a week week, so check back on Tuesday for a review of Cracked by Elisa Crewe. :)

  5. Both Cress and These Broken Stars are on my review stack. These Broken Stars is on the list to read next week. Cress is a while off. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media if you get a chance. Happy reading!

  6. That Doctor Who thing annoys me too. Editors of the world take note!

    Also I'm really excited to read Flame. I've enjoyed the series and can't wait to see how she wraps it up
