How’s your weekend so far? I’m absolutely ecstatic and nervous for the coming BEA. I’m anxious to meet a lot of bloggers, authors and industry people alike, but at the same time, I’m freaking out. I’ve never been very good at being friendly, so bear with me if you find some discrepancies between my on-line persona and the person you will be meeting in person. But heck, I’m looking forward to meeting you, anyway. 🙂
As for books, there’s nothing really that I’m dying to read, except maybe for Prototype but Dutton did not list it as one that will have a showing. So, if there’s any books that you think is worth lining up for, then feel free to leave it in the comments.
This past week has been a relatively so-so reading and blogging week.
This was such a lovely summer read. I quite enjoyed it. The story about a girl who had to find bravery within her in a bid to find her best friend who vanished without preamble. I always like finding playlists accompaniments on books, and this has a couple, at least. Bonus.
This novella shows us why our hero and anti-hero (which is which is your prerogative) became who they were. And in the centre of their plight, is Emma; the woman that inadvertently (and unknowingly) steered their respective destinies. Ms. Waters’ publicist said this will ease some of the pain of waiting for Prototype, but I respectfully disagree. It did not soothe anything; it just fanned the flame of my miserable want to murderous degree. July is too fucking far away.
God. Where to start with this book? I hated it with a passion. I had to take a breather on a couple of occasions while I was reading. I’ve never hated a group of characters as much as I hated these people. Sweet Brodee couldn’t save the story for me.
Net Galley Grabs:
Started reading Stitching Snow, it’s Cinder-like, and so it’s quite addicting.
I haven’t touched Mortal Danger just yet. I have no clue what it’s about, but I wanted Ann redeemed in my eyes, so I downloaded this one as soon as it came available.
Anyway, that’s it for me this week. I have reviews to write and Bloglovin’ posts to read!
