Me on Some End of the Week Book-Related Stuff

I'm not one for controversy. If you want to know what happened this week, it's called Google. Still, I'm not sure where to go from here, if I'll go back to IMM or not, if you guys still want to see me ramble on about my week and say what books I got. Hopefully, I can come up with a title that doesn't suck. Like, 'This Week in Review Babble,' or something. 'Rambling About a Bunch of Stuff.' I suck at titles.

After last week's mail freak-out, I got 4 books on Monday (1 was an e-galley). Way to redeem the week before, Monday. ;)

My Canadian YA lit blog event starts on Tuesday. Are you excited?? :) There should still be IMM/book mail stuff and Waiting on Wednesday posts, if that's the only reason you wander past the blog. But there will also be guest posts and Q&A's and reviews. And giveaways. More than one. :)

Why, yes, I'll be in NYC for the first week of September. ;) My mom asked if I wanted to go to the US Open (tennis) and I said yes, so we're going for the second week. I've never been to NYC but I've been in the state, went to Corning (the glass museum) and Cooperstown (baseball hall of fame). So, if there's anything book-related happening around then that you guys know about, that'd be awesome. Or book-related places to go. The Strand is on my list. :)

Revived by Cat Patrick (to review from Hachette Book Group Canada)
Real Mermaids Don't Hold Their Breath by Hélène Boudreau (to review from Raincoast Books) (rather temped to read this now and include it in the blog event)
Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan (to review from Raincoast Books) (the thing is, I haven't read Glow yet, but it is at the library so I've got a bit of time to read it)
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead (to review from Penguin Canada)
Soulbound by Heather Brewer (to review from Penguin Canada)
The Opposite of Tidy by Carrie Mac (won from Razorbill/Penguin Canada)
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu (to review from St. Martin's through NetGalley)
Timepiece by Myra McEntire (to review from Egmont through NetGalley)

To read & review: Fated, Shadow and Bone, The Golden Lily, Soulbound, Never Enough, Spark, Innocent Darkness, Glitch, Scarlett Dedd, Blackwood, Shift, Yesterday, Romeo Redeemed and Tune. :)


  1. Great books! I can't wait to read Glitch.

  2. I am super excited about Golden Lily. I can't wait to read it! Revived is wonderful. It reall surprised me in fantastic way. I hope you enjoy it just as much.

    I like you won't be doing IMM. I will be doing something else until I see where everyone is linking up.

    YAY for NYC! You have to stop by Books of Wonder if they having a YA signing that week. They seem to have some pretty awesome signings all the time.

    Great bunch of books. Curious about Spark and what you think.

  3. I know what you mean re: IMM. I dunno... I think a lot of people are abandoning it and the title. I personally don't really know. I figure it's not my place to judge a situation I'm not a part of, so I kept the name but I just made my own graphic and took away the link.

  4. NYC is wonderful! You'd love it. And also, great bunch of books this week. I hope you enjoy Golden Lily and Glitch!


    *calms oneself*

    so, yeah, I'm just doing a book haul. I can't support her because of what she did, and participating in her meme, linking up on her blog, is supporting her and I'm not okay with what she did. I say do whatever you want.

  6. also: I am so excited for your Canadian lit event! can't wait to see what authors you highlight and all the good stuff going down on the blog. :)

  7. all of these books look amazing!! looking forward to more posts from your blog!!

  8. you got the FREAKING GOLDEN LILY I can't help it, excuse my jealousy aura!!!!!!!! :I

    Happy Reading!
    -ps. I won't be doing an IMM either but I've seen around one already that's called Stacking the Shelves hosted by TYNGA'S REVIEWS
