Me on This Week's Book Week (88)

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. ;)

Things are weird. It's feeling vaguely like spring. I heard there's a cherry blossom tree in Vancouver with cherry blossoms on it. Like already blooming. And it's only the end of January! Geez, our winter sure was mild and not terrible.

On Friday I got some book mail, a finished copy of Hollow City and the sampler of Ignite Me. It wasn't until I'd taken a picture for this post that I realized how appropriate it was that both came on the same day. Oh, Tahereh and Ransom. You're the most adorable author couple ever.

Oh, ALA Midwinter. You were so cool last year. And I miss that I'm not at you this year and probably won't be until you're in Seattle again. In 2019. I'm trying to curb my jealousy at those who are in Philly this weekend. Maybe I should just avoid Twitter all weekend.

Reviews for the coming week will feature Cress by Marissa Meyer (Tuesday) and Alienated by Melissa Landers (Friday). :)
Bought/borrowed/received:
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs (won from Indigo Teen Blog on Twitter) (plus a tote bag)
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi chapter sampler (won from HCC Frenzy on Twitter)
Avalon by Mindee Arnett (e-book borrowed from the library)
Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski (e-galley from Random House through NetGalley)

  1. I just finished reading Hollow City and loved it! I didn't know they were an author couple! That explains why Ransom's author photo was taken by Tahereh Mafi, though. :)

  3. I still haven't Ms Peregrines, but with all this Hollow City hype I definitely need to get to it. Enjoy all your new books this week =D
