There is lots of glorious wonder in today’s post! First of all: books. And then: intense fangirling. AND THEN: a giveaway!
Oh, the delicious excitement.
I am an intense fan of all things Maggie Stiefvater AND NOW I FINALLY HAVE THE DREAM THIEVES TO READ. CUE FLAILING. My library rocks. And, I’ll have you note, this is my only library borrow. I am so controlled.
Aaaand, I won Say What You Will from Iris @ IrisjeXx! (Thank you!) Which I am excited and nervous about because it’s pitched as “John Green meets Rainbow Rowell”, which, um, are super big shoes to fill.
Thanks Thames and Hudson Australia for The Peculiars! This was a surprise, sooo…not sure about it yet. I haven’t read much steampunk.
Thank you to Hardie Grant Egmont for the review-copy of Gone! This is going to be a fabulous reread for me and oh gosh, I love the new covers. (I will rave about it in the review to come, naturally.)
And I won The Neptune Project (don’t say anything about me winning stuff, okay? don’t jinx me!) BUT I DON’T REMEMBER WHO FROM. I feel awful. But I still thank you, wonderful blogger!
sunday – Yay! New blog design! And we return from hiatus!
monday – We review Fire & Flood which we had mixed feelings about.
tuesday – Please, for the love of Lamb Stew and Dried Plums, STOP comparing books to The Hunger Games!
wednesday – We link up for Top Ten Tuesday and Cait reveals she has a mild obsession with the TV show Man Vs. Wild.
friday – We review Alexander Altmann A10567 and basically cry and use Sherlock gifs.
saturday – Cait wishes she was Iron Man…and also questions if one should write consistently or in bulk?
Oh, and so this other majorly exciting thing happened which caused me to fangirl greatly. You know how I wrote a post about YA authors and their animated character look-a-likes? I was too shy to tweet it to any authors…because, you know. SHY. Buuuut…J.R. Johansson (who I said looked like Merida from Pixar’s Brave) found it and tweeted it!
And excuse me, but I am fangirling so hard I couldn’t even stumble out a coherent reply. AUTHORS WERE ON MY BLOG. You can see the twitter conversation here, too!
Then A.G. Howard put it on facebook! So basically I had JR Johansson and AG Howard and Leigh Bardugo and Natalie Whipple (whose tweet is somehow hidden above) WERE ALL ON MY BLOG. #bestdayever
