Me on This Week's Book Week (124)

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. ;)

Hello! The leaves outside my window are turning yellow and orange and red, and it's possible that I mowed the lawn fro the last time this year this week. *phew* What kind of mood is everyone in right now? It's Thanksgiving up here this weekend (holiday on Monday), but Hallowe'en is on its way. And grocery stores are starting to stock up on egg nog.

So many October 14 releases. *falls over dead from backed-up review schedule* And then BLLB comes out on the 21st. Exciting!

Next Saturday there's a book signing with Veronica Roth and Tahereh Mafi. I'll be going, but it's looking like it's ticketed with some really specific conditions. I'm thinking I'll just go to watch and take pictures. Then the next Wednesday is a Vancouver Writers Fest event with Marie Lu (The Young Elites) and Robert Paul Weston (Blues for Zoey). More exciting!

Reviews going up this coming week will feature Mortal Gods by Kendare Blake (Tuesday) and Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker (Thursday) with a special blog tour post on Friday. :)
Bought/borrowed/received:
In Real Life by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang (finished copy from Raincoast Books)
Batgirl #35 (bought from my local comic book store) (I'm giving this a test read. The downside is I haven't read the last 34 issues.)
This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner (free Starbound e-book)
