Me on This Week's Book Haul (6)

Did I get books this week???? Why, yes I did. Hooray for stop-gap measures. ;)

If you know me, you'll know that I do this volunteer spot for a week in August at the Vancouver Public Library. I'm doing it again this year. :) It looks a little different than last year, but then last year was a little different than the year before.

Did everyone see the new cover of Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me? It's gorgeous. And I will totally admit that while the first cover was nice, I didn't totally get it. Looking at the new cover, I realize that this isn't a 'girl in a dress on the cover' series. Isn't it pretty? I'll so be getting a copy when it comes out in October.
Kathy tweeted me Tuesday night to let me know she was able to get a copy of Gennifer Albin's Crewel for me at BEA. Then she told me Genn signed it. Awwww. Last year BEA sucked because I was at home still hobbling around in the air cast. This year it sucked because I won't be in New York until September. (My mom bought the tennis tickets, so we're actually going.)

So, while I'm off in New York for that first week of September, I'll probably have some scheduled reviews go up, but I won't be taking my laptop with me. Hopefully, there will be Wi-Fi at a bunch of places so I won't be totally cut off from Twitter and e-mail (like, not just at the hotel).
The Goddess Legacy by Aimée Carter (from Harlequin through NetGalley)

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

  1. ooh, enjoy The Goddess Legacy! I got it a few weeks ago and can't wait to read it. In fact, I read The Goddess Hunt this week in hopes of getting to TGL next week or something.

  2. Awesome books this week!! Never Enough sounds soo good!

  3. I really need to get around to reading SHATTER ME, especially with the new cover...

  4. The Shatter Me cover is crazy amazing. I LOVE IT! So much more than the first cover, which I didn't really get either (even though it is pretty). This fits the series so much better and I hope the rest of the books keep similar covers. Totally getting a copy of this too.

    You are most welcome for Crewel! Hope you enjoy it.

  5. Endlessly!!! T_T
    The Goddess Legacy!!!!!
