So maybe I did accidentally go to the library. But I’m working my way through my unruly stack with such speed I thought I deserved a reward. (Basically: more books.)
Happy middle of the year, also! Since Mime is on school holidays, I’m taking a small break from All Things Writing. Which, naturally, has lead me to plotting an epic fantasy series that I’m bribing myself to ignore. I don’t need more book ideas. I do not. But since she will be at Youth Orchestra this week…maybe I could make a Pinterest board for this weed book idea. Maybe. That’s not giving in, right?
Thanks Text for The Astrologer’s Daughter. This was a complete surprise. Probably not something I’d pick per se, but I’m going in with an open mind.
Thanks Hatchette Australia for The Young World and The Seventh Miss Hatfield. I specifically requested The Young World and OMG I GOT IT. Excuse me, I need to flail for a while. Some apocalyptic action that’s already optioned for movie rights (because the writers is also a film director)?? Yes please. Miss Hatfield was a surprise. Buuut, it’s a teen author and I’m interested.
From my library (yeah, yeah, I said I wasn’t going to the library BUT I LIED, OKAY?) I borrowed Shiver (which will be a reread in preparation for the awesome that is Sinner) and The Maze Runner (because MOVIE) and It’s Kind of a Funny Story (because Emily raved about it and I’m peer pressured that way…I also didn’t realise this one is a movie! It looks awesome).
monday – Cait writes a letter to Unlikable Characters. (Spoiler: She doesn’t like them.)

Giselle @ Book Nerd gives advice on how to write reviews and what ELSE book bloggers could post about! (Loads of ideas, peoples.)
Faye @ The Social Potato ignites my Tintin fangirl with pictures of a Tintin store’s opening.
The Book Chewers are celebrating Harry Potter month….and looking for guest posters.
Maggie Stiefvater gives advice to shy people attending book signings.

I don’t usually have room to post all reviews on the blog…so I want to know what YOU want me to post about. Plus: deciding what to read is hard. You do the dirty work. That’s what you’re here for.
