Hello, dear readers!
Happy Memorial Weekend, to my American friends and followers! It’s such a beautiful weekend up here so far. Yesterday, temperatures reached a high of 29 C – which is very summer-like, and very much an awesome way to send off Spring! I have three days to prepare for BEA. I have not packed, only glanced at the festivities schedule, and slightly going unhinged at the moment.
I’m so proud of myself this week, y’all! I only bought one book (The Biggest Flirts). Well, technically, two, but I bought Plus One when it came out but forgot to include it in my post then. The rest I either won or was sent by publishers.
I won Gender Outlaws at last month’s LGBT Litfest over at Cayces’ and Laura’s blogs. It’s non-fiction, very out there for me, but I’m excited, nonetheless. Much love to Seal Press! I received Dissonance and Through to You from Simon & Schuster; Divided by Elsie Chapman from Random House, which will be stopping by here sometime in June; In the Name of the Blade and Evil Librarian from Candlewick Press. Thank you so much to these awesome publishers!
Stitching Snow started off so great. It was fast-paced and very engrossing. Unfortunately, it petered off when Snow went back home to confront the King and the evil Queen. I say it’s a 3-star read for me.
I don’t know how much time I could spend blogging next week, but I’d planned to do a regular update of the goings-on while in New York. I’m going to do a Live Top Ten Tuesday, which means, I’ll be updating my post as I see random things about NYC that day. I hope I can, anyway. Otherwise, I’ll probably do a Tuesday night post.
