I haven’t stacked the shelves for TWO WHOLE WEEKS so I have a lot of books accumulating. It’s scaring me just a little.
And I’m still editing. I feel bad, because I tormented my book early on about how fat it was. That was cruel of me. Now it’s losing waaaay too much weight. It’s gone from 82K to 68K. I’m feeding it fattening scenes and culturing its self respect. As one does when working with their books.
I’m linking up with Tynga’s Reviews for the meme Stacking The Shelves! Basically: you recount books you’ve won/bought/collected this week.
Frankly, this stack scares me. It’s not reading time I’m worried about. It’s blogging space. Seriously, you blogglings are in for a deluge of reviews. I EITHER GET ALL THE BOOKS OR NONE. WHY?
Thank you Allen & Unwin, Bloomsbury, Penguin Australia, aaaand Walker Books Australia! I love you.
Oh, and I need to take a moment to fangirl intensely. SARAH J MAAS!!! OH MY GOSH!!!! Also: I’m looking forward to Half Bad a lot.
I won (sort of) Cracked and I asked for Dead Ends last year, so I didn’t think it was coming. And Suzy Zail is a fantastic Australian author who writes books about the holocaust and makes me cry. Thanks, Suzy. You’re the best.
Thank you Hachette Australia on NetGalley! Look! They approved me twice! They must love me.
I love my library! Just thought I’d mention that. John Boyne blew my mind with The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and I nearly had a heart attack when I realised Stay Where You Are And Then Leave existed! (Okay, but the dude does need to work on his titles.)
Aaaand I’m having a bit of a fairy-tale party with Jackson Pearce and Zoe Marriott. Has anyone read Shadows on the Moon??! I’m curious! I DEMAND YOUR THOUGHTS. It’s a Cinderella retelling in Japan. Awesome, right?
As for Thirteen Reasons Why…I feel like my memory has fallen out of my left elbow, but SOMEONE reviewed this recently and I reserved it on a whim. I know not who you are now, or how I came to find you, but I’m reading your recommendation! You rock, person who I desperately wish to remember. Obviously I read waaaay too many reviews.
This is a new addition to my stacking the shelves posts! I love reading other blogs and I want to share with you some of my delicious finds of this week across the blogosphere. So go read them. I told you to nicely, so that counts.
Kat @ Cuddlebuggery lists 3 books she’s sick of reading. (This is so funny!) And while we’re over at Cuddlebuggery, Steph listed the survey results from their blog readers. It’s really interesting.
@ Oh The Books! recommends awesome reads with strong female friendships. (Go Iko and Cinder!)
Allie @ Little Birdie Books asks if Bad Boys are yesterday’s news?
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence talks about reading styles and if you change them up?
@ Epic Reads collected the first tweets of authors. These are HILARIOUS. Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs are probably the funniest people ever.
@ YouTube there’s this hilarious video of a dude singing Let it Go in ALL THE VOICES. As you do.
@ Hypable Julie Murphy (author of Side Effects May Vary) said how she feels about being compared to John Green.
sunday – We spill our secrets! ALL THE THINGS you didn’t know about the Notebook Sisters.
monday – Why can’t countries agree on book covers? Huh? WHY.
tuesday – Cait reviews
Morpheus the Moth Unhinged and basically fangirls the whole time. Useless review, naturally.
wednesday – Cait’s Bookish Bucket List involves discovering immortality and Hobbit shoes.
thursday – GIVEAWAY! Huzzah! You could win Night Vision by Ella West.
friday – Cait and Jack Sparrow sum up all the book blogging advice there is.
saturday – We review The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. Um. That was interesting.
