The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hi all! So this is going to be a bit of a two week wrap-up. Woot!

In the past two weeks: 

I participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon. Unfortunately my performance was much less than I would have liked it to be, but sometimes my reading just isn’t what it could be. I’m sure most readers have times like that though. I think in the end I finished up with 2 books read, 1 novella read, and 2 other books started. I read a total of somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 pages during that week.

I also posted three book reviews this week…

Silver and One Bullet Away were major wins while Beautiful Bastard was in that not bad, but not great category.

Recent reads:

I’ve been really touch and go with reading in the last week. Unfortunately work has been kicking my ass so I’ve pretty much been coming home and doing nothing… except buying books… lots of books. As for what I’ve been reading, I’ve been tackling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. Both books are good thus far.

Coming up:

I’m really hoping to improve my reading this week. I have two whole days off this week right next to each other! It’s almost like an actual weekend! That should be good recuperation and reading time right there. I’d like to finish Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Bloodlines and dig into some of these new books I’ve gotten. So much awesomeness waiting to be had!

The book haul:

My favorite part! I love book hauls. Even though my reading may have recently suffered, my book buying certainly hasn’t! Shocker, I know. So in the past two weeks I’ve bought (and I apologize ahead of time for bad pictures)…

new haul 1

-Sucker’s Portfolio by Kurt Vonnegut
– Junior by Macaulay Culkin: I had no clue Macaulay Culkin wrote a book. None. When I saw it, I had to have it. Say what you want about him, but the 90s kid in me will never hate him. =]
– This is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin: OMFG – so psyched for this. I can’t wait!
– The Mongoliad: Book One by Various Authors: This is  trilogy that’s a compilation from like seven or eight different Sci-fi/fantasy authors. It looks really interesting and for just a few bucks I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a go.
– Ettiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger: Pretty sure this requires no words.
– Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson and Ronald Cotton: We discussed this book in one of my classes this semester and I kept thinking about it so I bought it.
– The Law of Nines by Terry Goodkind: I’ve seen Goodkind’s name a lot, but never checked out his work. I got this hardback for two bucks, so why not give it a whirl?

newhaul2

– How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran: I’ve heard lots of great things about this book so it was past time for me to get a copy.
– Man in the Empty Suit by Sean Ferrell: The premise of this book sounds frickin’ awesomesauce! Simple as that.
– Numbers by Rachel Ward: I actually got a free copy of the second book in this series from Scholastic completely by surprise (thanks Scholastic!) so I finally got the first book so I can read them.
– Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn
– Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith: I went on a Seth Grahame-Smith binge this week. No lie.
– Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith: Forgot to include this one in the picture… lols.
– Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith: Told you so. So yes, I already have this book, but this new one? It’s a gorgeous hardback edition with new paintings in it and stuffs… and I paid less than two bucks for it… so yeah.
– Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls: I haven’t read this one yet, so that was another one that I figured it was past time.
– The Fire Rose by Mercedes Lackey
– Immanuel’s Veins by Ted Dekker
– The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny: I read most of this but had to return it to the library, but I loved what I read so much that I willingly forked over the dough for a new hardback copy. Oh yeah.
– Unwind by Neal Schusterman: This book sounds so good. I don’t even care that it’s not my usual genre.
– And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini: I fangirled so hard. So. hard. When I found out he had a new book coming out. Sadly I didn’t get to go meet him this past week when he was in my state, but I did get a pre-ordered signed copy so I’ll content myself with that. So psyched for this book! Bring on the feels.

That’s everything so, Happy Reading!

The Sunday Post: May 12th

sundaypost

It’s Sunday Post time, but before I get started I just want to say Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead

It’s been a really slow week here, slow as in one post. It was my last week in school and I had extra hours at work so when I was home I was pretty much pretending to read or outright passed out. On a happy note I’m almost recovered from the semester ending (super YAY!) and I have tonsssss of new books to dig into – as if I don’t already own hundreds of unread books, lol.

Recent Reads:

I did finish the Sweep series books that I was rereading this week.

Current Reads:

I’m still reading King of the Class which I hope to finish by Monday night and I’m reading Silver by Rhiannon Held.

Coming Up:

My (kinda) usual meme posts, since I have no excuse not to post, should be up Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

I’m also hoping to get a few more reviews polished and posted this week. Namely, One Bullet Away, Beautiful Bastard, and Walking Disaster. I think I started writing another review recently, but I honestly don’t remember which one. I just have notes all over the place… literally, in notebooks and post its and on the computer and stuff. It’s insanity. I feel some spring cleaning coming on. Anywhoodle… the best part.

The Book Haul:

As if I really needed to buy more books this week after hauling 57 new books last week, but I’m an addict and Amazon and Barnes and Noble are dangerous places. So… what did I get?

newbookage

I guess you could say I bought a book or two (and this isn’t even all of them!)…. darn that free two day shipping on books that are already cheap.

gonegirl

I finally got Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn! I’ve heard so many good things about Gillian Flynn from tons and tons of people so I knew I had to get one of her books eventually.

missperegrineshome

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: This is another book I’ve meaning to get my greedy bookworm paws on for a while and finally did! I mean, there’s a girl levitating on the cover…. what’s not to love?

mapoftime

The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma: This is the first book in the trilogy by Palma. I hauled the second book last week and finally got my copy of the first one. This to has a pretty cover.

war

War by Sebastian Junger: A couple of months ago, I had watched the documentary Restrepo (which was fantastic for those who are into military documentaries). Sebastian Junger is one of the journalists who was in Afghanistan making the documentary. Ever since I’ve been on the lookout for a copy of this book.

warmbodies

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion: I’m betting most everyone has heard about this book by now. I finally hopped on the bandwagon and got my copy. I can’t wait to read it!

midnightingarden

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt: My mom suggested this book to me a few weeks back and when I saw a copy on Amazon for just a few dollars I had to have it. Now I do. When I told my mom she actually squealed aloud which was kind of shocking for me, lol.

Just a warning… I may fangirl a little bit (or a lot) over this next purchase. So one day probably two years ago I was flipping through youtube and I found the vlogbrothers after watching this video. Even so, I still to this day have not read a John Green book. However, since The Fault in Our Stars he’s been EVERYWHERE. Blogs, bookstore sites, sites like goodreads…. errrwhere! So I finally decided I needed to buy one of his books and I ended up with this….

greenboxset

A box set of his four books. But that’s not the coolest part, not the fact that I got a seventy dollar box set for nearly half price. The coolest part is this:

green1

green2

HECK YEAHHH…. the copies of Looking for Alaska AND The Fault in Our Stars are signed. SO COOL, omigosh.

So yeah, that was an awesome surprise.

To finish up this haul, there are a few more books I got that aren’t pictured.

Silver by Rhiannon Held: I actually borrowed this from the library, but I didn’t finish it before my re-renew period was up XD, so I bought a copy. Why not, right?

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire: This is the companion novel to Beautiful Disaster. Regardless of my thoughts about Beautiful Disaster, I’m quite psyched for this read.

Dead Iron (Age of Steam #1) by Devon Monk: I’ve seen Devon Monk’s name all over, so why not dig in with steampunk. I love me some steampunk.

The Balefire omnibus by Cate Tiernan: Tiernan is the author of the Sweep series that I spent the last couple weeks rereading. I decided it was time to check out her other stuff and got all four of her Balefire books in one. Can’t. Wait.

The Poison Tree by Erin Kelly: To be honest I know nothing about this book other than it has a pretty cover and was a 5 dollar hardcover. I’ll have that thank you verry much.

And that does it for this week. Have you read anything good this week? Should I put any of these at the top of my list? Anything else you’d like to share? Have at it.

The Sunday Post: May 5th

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

It’s the first Sunday of May and I’m here with a mega post that will mostly be my mega book haul from my recent trip to my favorite used book store plus all the other books I got, lol. So… lets get going.

Recently on the Blog:

  • I participated in Top Ten Tuesday and talked about my auto-buys for books. 
  • I posted my April wrap-up and my tentative May stuff.

I’ve read:

On Friday I mentioned I’ve been re-reading a series that I loved when I was younger and at that point I had read through book 6. Well I’m currently on book 10, so in the last week I’ve read books 1-9 in the Sweep series.

I’ve also been reading King of the Class by Gila Green.

Coming Up:

I do know that I’ll be taking part in Musing Monday tomorrow and I know exactly what I’ll be talking about. I also intend to participate in Top Ten Tuesday and Booking Through Thursday. Other than that, I’ll be writing my last paper of the semester!!!!!

So I kept that short and sweet because… my book haul… it’s bad.

The Book Haul:

I was meaning to do pictures and stuff, but I forgot to do them earlier and quite honestly I’m too lazy to do it now, so there will be some cover pictures from the internet and LOTSA listing of book titles. I’m also going to try to separate my hauls so they’re not too confusing… or something. XD

Ready? Set? Go!

During a couple of recent Barnes & Noble trips I’ve gotten (Fiction first!):

shadesofgrey

  • Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde – this book has been on my list for a while now and when I saw this in the bargain section I just had to have it. Plus, the cover is frickin’ awesomesauce.
  • American Gods (The Tenth Anniversary Release) by Neil Gaiman – I’ll admit, I already own a copy of this book and even though I haven’t yet read it, I’ve heard enough good things that I decided to splurge on this version which is the author’s preferred text version and has a pretty cover. Now to decide which version to read first… help?!
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
  • 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
  • The Sweep series, Volume 1 (Books 1-3) by Cate Tiernan – they didn’t have the first three books at the used bookstore when I went so I ended up ordering it from B&N.
  • Triangles by Ellen Hopkins – I read Crank by Ellen Hopkins when I was younger and LOVED it. Triangles is her first adult novel so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a go.

Non-fiction from B&N:

theheartandthefist

  • The Heart and the Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy Seal by Eric Greitens
  • Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain by David Eagleman – a book about the brain… however could I say no??

Moving on to my used book store haul… Prepare yourselves.

To start, I bought books 4-11 in the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan to fill in the ones that I lost…

  • Dark Magick, #4
  • Awakening, #5
  • Spellbound, #6
  • The Calling, #7
  • Changeling, #8
  • Strife, #9
  • Seeker, #10
  • Origins, #11

Quick story about this series just to illustrate how deeply I love it. I first read this series when I was about 13. OMG, did I love it. Well, I was reading it when my mom and I went to Ireland on vacation and I brought three of the books with me figuring that between the flights and the airport waits and the reading I would do before bed that would be the perfect number of books to have with me. Well… I finished them halfway through the trip, so part of my time touring Dublin was actually spent scouring bookstores so that I could keep reading this series… which was actually even funnier because I couldn’t seem to figure out that the series was released under a different name in Europe. So… yeah. Dedication right there. Moving on.

I also bought a few books in Jacquelyn Frank’s Nightwalkers Series:

  • Gideon, #2
  • Damien, #4
  • Noah, #5

Funny thing… I was positive that Damien and Noah’s books were 3 and 4 respectively so I’m all like… ‘yeah man I can continue this series.’ Turns out I’m wrong so I’ll probably be hauling the real book three in the near future. Whoops.

I also bought the Hannibal Lecter books (which I hope I have in the correct order) because I felt like it, lol…

reddragon

  • Red Dragon, #1
  • Silence of the Lambs, #2
  • Hannibal, #3
  • Hannibal Rising, #4

To add to my Zebra Horror collection, I bought:

  • Haunted by Tamara Thorne

In Sci-fi/Fantasy, I bought:

mapofthesky

  • The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma – so this is technically the second book of a trilogy and I was looking for book 1, but they didn’t have book one and the cover was just so pretty… so I bought it.
  • Homeland (Dark Elf Trilogy #1) by R.A. Salvatore – this was actually suggested to me by a friend of mine.
  • Dracula in London edited by P.N. Elrod – This is a series of short stories about Dracula I guess… It looks interesting though I’ll wait until I actually read Dracula since I haven’t yet. XD
  • Godmother Night by Rachel Pollack
  • The Presidents Vampire (Nathaniel Cade #2) by Christopher Farnsworth
  • Red, White, & Blood (Nathaniel Cade #3) by Christopher Farnsworth

Other Fiction Books:

  • Esperanza by Trish J. MacGregor
  • Ghost Key by Trish J. MacGregor
  • Imajica by Clive Barker
  • A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammed Hanif
  • The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris
  • Sleeping with Soldiers by Rosemary Daniell
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin
  • Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
  • The Remedy by Michelle Lovric
  • The Watchers by Jon Steele
  • The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian
  • The Celibate by Michael Arditti
  • The Effects of Light by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
  • Gaijin by Marc Olden
  • The Information Officer by Mark Mills
  • The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose

Last but not least, Non-fiction!

  • Lords of the Sea by John R. Hale
  • The Salem Witch Trials by Marilynne K. Roach
  • Courtesans & Fishcakes: The Consuming Passions of Classical Athens by James Davidson – Okay… how do you not buy a book called Courtesans & Fishcakes? I mean really? This book could have been about sewage or  a blade of grass or whatever and I still would have bought it just for the awesome title.
  • Darwin Among the Machines: The Evolution of Global Intelligence by George B. Dyson
  • On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War & Society by  Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
  • In the Rose Garden of the Martyrs: A Memoir of Iran by Christopher de Ballaigne
  • The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Catherine Liszt – This book was actually mentioned a few times in Sex at Dawn and went on my list way back then so I’m glad to finally have found a copy
  • Homosexuality & Psychoanalysis edited by Tim Dean and Chris Lane – this has psychology nerd written all over it… bring it on.
  • Appetites: Why Women Want by Caroline Knapp
  • Seductress: Women Who Ravished the World & Their Lost Art of Love by Betsy Prioleau

So… that should be all 57… yes… fifty-seven books I’ve recently purchased. I can admit that I have a problem and no… I don’t intend to do anything about it, lol.

Anything look good here? Anything you’ve read that I should knock up to the top of the TBR? Let me know.

The Sunday Post: April 7th

sundaypost

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

I’m back with my third Sunday Post! Woot!

So this week my Sunday Post is actually going to serve as my March Rundown and… well, my Sunday Post. Multitasking for the win!

Looking Back at March Reads:

March wasn’t the most impressive reading month I’ve ever had to say the least. It wasn’t the least impressive either though, so score one for me – I think.

All told, I finished eight books in March.

  • One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick, which was amazing!
  • Rush by Maya Banks, the first in the Breathless trilogy which also was amazing
  • Creed’s Honor by Linda Lael Miller, which proved to be another win for her
  • The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski, I liked this book a lot, but I may need to re-read it to gather my thoughts more before talking about it in a review.
  • And from the BDSM Romance kick I went on was, With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright and the first three books in the Rescue Me series by Kallypso Masters 1. Masters at Arms, 2. Nobody’s Angel, 3. Nobody’s Hero

So that’s what I read in March, like I said… could be worse, trust. Now for the usual Sunday Post programming!

In the Last Week I’ve:

Done nothing here on the blog because when I wasn’t working or at school I was being lazypants. My b.

I read:

  • The fourth book in the Rescue Me series, Nobody’s Perfect by Kallypso Masters – ’twas good!
  • Fever by Maya Banks, the second in the Breathless Trilogy – also very good!
  • Suicide Note by Teresa Mummert – which was… less good.

Current Reads:

Sadly, I still haven’t finished the last three books I was reading for my last Sunday Post. Fail. And to be honest, other than those books, I haven’t really decided what to read next, so when I know, you will. OR.

Suggest some stuff… because I like suggestions. What have you liked recently? Tell me! Tell me!

This week on the blog:

I will get my crap together. Wanna know how I know? It’s cause I actually checked my email and made notes and stuffs. It means that there’s a plan! What’s that they say?….. It’s almost like I know what I’m doing. XD

Also, since I’m off until Tuesday, I’m planning on using at least some of the next day and a half or so for a mini read-a-thon for myself, if I can ever decide what to read. I’m hoping to be able to participate in the Dewey ‘thon on the 27th, but not sure yet if I’ll be working. If I am, at least I’ll have some sort of reading marathon for myself this month.

Last but not least…

The Book Haul:

This weeks haul is actually pretty small. Only four books. But that’s okay since I have a trip to my favorite used bookstore in my near future!!! You know what that means ;D

So my recent purchases are…

fever

Fever by Maya Banks! Which I read pretty much right away, lol. And not pictured is Rush which I already read, but didn’t have a hard copy of… so. Yeah. I’m that guy who buys books I already own.

johndiesattheend

John Dies at the End by David Wong. I randomly got a text from a friend of mine this week gushing about this book and its sequel, and I trust his word about this stuff. So I went out and bought it. I still don’t really know what it’s about.

beautifulbastards

Lastly, Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren. I have heard so much good and bad about this book. So much. My curiosity finally got the best of me and I just said what the hell and grabbed it. Hopefully it’ll have been worth the 15 bucks.

And that’s all for today… Any reading suggestions? Help a girl out!

Happy Reading!

The Sunday Post: The ‘I Totally Disappeared For a While’ Edition

sundaypost

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

So… Hello one and all!

I’ve totally been gone from the blog over the last couple of weeks because of work and school and needing to sleep when I wasn’t dealing with either of those things. Needless to say, my life was hectic and I let the blog get away from me for a while there. To be honest, I let all things bookish get away from me. Except for my ability to buy books, because I’ll admit it. When I need comfort and sanity in my life, I buy books. Coping skills 101 right there.

That being said, here’s a two week special edition of The Sunday Post, which will mostly be pictures of books and bookish stuffs.

Since my last Sunday Post I’ve:

I’ve Read:

To be honest… not a lot. In two weeks I’ve finished two books… two. I CRY! Literally, too.

edgeofneverI read The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski sort of on a whim. This was one of my recent ‘I can’t sleep so I’m going to buy lots of e-books’ binges. Can I just say… So good. The emotional anguish was about as bad as The Reluctant Dom fiasco meaning tears… hella tears.

withthiscollar

Another e-book binge purchase was With This Collar by Sierra Cartwright because I’m just hooked on the BDSM romance. I can’t kick the habit and that’s okay, ’cause I can own it.

Current Reads:

So, I’m in the middle of three books that I started before my disappearance two weeks ago, that I desperately need to pick up and finish. Those would be:

  • The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny
  • Laura Meets Jeffrey by Jeffrey Michelson and Laura Bradley
  • Silver by Rhiannon Held

Also… To continue the BDSM trend, because I wasn’t kidding about being addicted, I’m reading the Rescue Me series by Kallypso Masters which I happen to be loving thus far.

Plans for the Rest of the Week:

The only plan I have is to get all my bloggy-ness organized. Respond to emails. That sort of stuff. For the rest I’ll be flying by the seat of my pants. If nothing else it should be fun to watch the insanity that’s sure to come.

Onto the best part….

The Book Haul!!!!!!

Since I’ve been gone… I’ve bought a book or two… or more.

startedearlytookmydog

I totally bought this book for its cover and title. I didn’t read the synopsis or anything. In fact, about 45 seconds ago, when I went to the Barnes & Noble site to get a photo of the cover I discovered it’s the fourth book in a series… so. Whoops.

cleopatra

Another spot and grab from the bargain section at Barnes & Noble. timeless

Be still my FANGIRL heart! I can finally, gloriously get caught up on the Parasol Protectorate series. Oh, hells to the yes!

bornofshadows

This is from my review catch-up list so I grabbed it when I saw it during one of my recovery trips to the bookstore, lol. Doesn’t hurt that I love everything I’ve read by Kenyon so far.

beforeigotosleep

I love my creepy stuff every so often and this one looked sufficiently creepy, so I grabbed it. Hopefully, it ends up being so.

secret

S.E.C.R.E.T. has been on my list since I first read about it and I literally just grabbed it without question when I walked by it. I couldn’t resist.

bloodlines

DO YOU SEE?! DO YOU SEE?! I finally bought Bloodlines!!!!! So psyched, so frickin’ psyched!

So that’s everything I bought in the last couple of weeks… in hard-copy  You see… I would normally talk about my e-books too, but the thing is, being exhausted and unable to sleep at 1 A.M. with a nook next to the bed signed into a B&N account with a valid debit card set up is bad and dangerous and here’s a sampling of what my inbox has looked like…

bandn

Yeah, that’s literally just a sample and I’d be here ALL week just trying to get that stuff organized, so I’m skipping the e-book purchases this go around.

With all that, Happy Reading!

The Sunday Post: March 10th

sundaypost

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

I found Kimba’s blog last month during the Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-thon, and after seeing a few Sunday Post’s decided I’d like to join in… so here’s to my first Sunday Post.

Before anything though, I’ll make an admission… I’ve actually shied away from posts like this in the past because I didn’t like the idea of setting a schedule, so to speak, for myself here. The reason being, I’m one of those people who says to expect A, B, and C this week and you would see A while B and C would be lost to the wind, yet D, E, and F which I never mentioned would be in your face. Because I’m cool like that. And I change my mind a lot.

I like to talk about bookish stuff like this though! And I like to see what bookishness other people have going on, so I want to take part. And I will, but everything that I mention for the future will be tentative, and that way when I go off the rails, it won’t be totally unexpected. Moving on…

This past week (Last Sunday included because I want it to be):

  • On the blog, I posted my Monthly Rundown which included my February wrap-up and plans for March (minus talking about Women’s History Month plans because I fail).
  • I participated in Musing Mondays (on Tuesday, win!), Top Ten Tuesday (where I talked about series I must read and put wayyyy too many more on the TBR reading others’ posts), and kinda whined about DST in my BTT post.

Notice how there is nothing about books I reviewed up there? That’s because I didn’t post any. Not because the reviews aren’t written. They are… they’re chilling in MS Word waiting to be shared with any curious eyes. Again, I fail. No worries though, they’ll be here starting this week.

I read:

onebulletaway
rush
creeds honor

Plans for the week ahead (Tentative!!):

  • I suspect I’ll be participating in my usual Monday, Tuesday, Thursday meme-age. Such is the plan at this point.
  • I’ll be posting my reviews for One Bullet Away, Rush, and Creed’s Honor as well as starting to post mini-reviews for books from the backlog
  • My review for A Watershed Year by Susan Schoenberg, part of my review book catch-up, will go up.

I’m Planning to read:

  • The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny (which I actually started last night. I’m only a few chapters in, but I’m intrigued to say the least)
  • Laura Meets Jeffrey by Jeffrey Michelson and Laura Bradley
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfield
  • Phantom Evil by Heather Graham

Last but not least, Bookish Loot:

I received a copy of King of the Class by Gila Green for review (thanks go to author Gila Green and Now or Never Publishing!)

King of the Class

Is that cover not awesome? I can’t even tell you how much time I’ve spent staring at it. Love it.

Also, I went to the library today!! =] I behaved myself though and only took out three more books!

Etiquette and espionage

ZOMG, yessss! I might be a little behind on the Parasol Protectorate books, but I still adore them to no end. I will follow Gail Carriger to the depths of YA and back with no issue!

Vagina

As part of my Women’s History ‘celebration’ I’m going to read Naomi Wolf’s newest book, Vagina: A New Biography. Gotta say, I’m pretty hyped to read this.

Silver

I stumbled upon this as I frantically searched the library for Etiquette & Espionage. The blurb on the back says that Silver is taking werewolves to a whole new level. I love me a good wolfy story from time to time so I’m hoping it lives up to the hype.

Happy Reading!
