I’ve officially posted 1,000 times! Apparently I have a lot to say! Still, it’s a milestone and I took a screenshot like the proud bloggling I am.
My TBR is growing behind my back, though. One week I’m on top of it, the next week — BOOM — I begin looking at new bookshelves in the catalogues. Mind you, for every 1 review-copy I request, I seem to get 3 unsolicited ones. Not that I’m complaining! It’s just daunting.
Tissues! A warning label! THAT IS SO CUTE. I love the way publishers take care of us. (Also shout out to Gina, because she nudged this idea to life and that is just. so. cool.)
Thanks Pan Macmillan for As Stars Fall. This an ARC, so the cover’s green and plain, but if you get a chance, jump over to Goodreads and see the real cover. It’s beautiful. (I’m such a cover addict it’s probably unhealthy.)
Thanks Allen & Unwin for Razorhurst! I’m on the blog tour and ohhhh this is going to be fun. So keep an eyeball peeled for my review and giveaway and…look at that title! Does this give me a reason to use Edward Scissorhand gifs? Say yes. Just appease me and say yes.
From my library, I borrowed Anna Dressed in Blood and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (are you happy, Emily?! This is all your fault!) and A Monster Calls (I think Patrick Ness is a genius). I’m really excited for Aristotle and Dante because everyone raves about it. Peer pressured reader? Guilty as charged.
Thanks Harlequin Teen on Edelweiss for Lies We Tell Ourselves! I finally got the guts to sign up to Edelweiss…and this is my first approval. Woot! I’m really excited for this book too!
Thanks Sourcebooks on NetGalley for Some Boys. I don’t know why I requested this. I liked the cover? In my defence though…I really like the cover.

You know how last week I read four 4-star books?! Don’t worry. Good streak = broken.
The Year of the Rat: brilliant. Loved. Cried. Weird lack of Chinese food in there though. [4-stars]
Breaking Butterflies: Absolutely awful and I would not recommend it at all. [2-stars]
Dead Dog in the Still of the Night: Ohhh, if only I could unread this. [1-star]
Aidyl @ Novel Tea is celebrating her authorly anniversary with a giveaway!
Robyn @ Spiral Bound started her blog! (Yay!) She also (cruelly) showed me Chicken on A Raft which has graciously run around my head ALL WEEK. Heeeey hooooo, Robyn. Thanks.
Kara @ Diary of a Teen Writer talks about swearing in YA.
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence asks why we watch books or movies that make us cry. (I really loved this post!)
Faye @ The Social Potato talks about Goodreads and how we use it. She also has some fabulous bookmark printouts!
Lydia @ Planet Lydia discussed naps and Egyptian pillows. You want to know what the Egyptians used for pillows? Trust me: you do.
Maggie Stiefvater says books don’t make you smart.
‘Scuse me while I dash all over the world to see these incredible bookstores.
This is movie-tie-in-book-cover-editions done right: If I Stay.
I was at YAvengers this week, being Hulk, and talking about 4 questions writers need to ask themselves (as asked by George Orwell, I might add).
I was also at The Book Chewers comparing City of Bones: movie vs. book. Guess which one I liked better?!
Phew I’ve been busy.
