What an amazing time we had at the Silicon Valley ComicCon last weekend! It was three days of non-stop fun. But, as entertaining as it was, it was also exhausting. As a result, I only read two books this week. But I received a bunch of new titles that I can't wait to read!
Read This Week:
I enjoyed both books I read this week. But I was most surprised by Aurora Sky. It was very different from other teen paranormal books (and definitely for older teens and adults). I will be reviewing the book this week and will give a detailed explanation at that time.
I also ran out my time on the audiobook I was listening to, so I will need to go back on the waiting list at the library. Live and learn, right? So here's what I got this week...
I already devoured Aurora Sky. It's a quick and fun read. All of these titles look awesome! I can't wait to read them. I am somewhat disappointed that Children of Icarus is only on PDF so I cannot put it on my Kindle. This means I need to sit at my computer in order to read it. I would have been okay with it, except that NetGalley didn't mention this until after I requested it. Oh well. I am still happy to get it.
Borrowed From The Library:
Oh, how I love the library! I came in to pick up The Thirteenth Tale (which I was on hold for an eternity), and walked out the door with two more books. I just want to sit in bed all weekend and read all these lovelies!
Thank you, Delfy Hall for the autographed copy of your book. I won this from a Twitter giveaway from Anne of Inked Brownies and it looks really good!
Bought At Silicon Valley ComicCon:
One of the aspects of the ComicCon experience that I love is the chance to talk to people. A very silly guy had a booth with all kinds of cat related stuff to promote his comic book, Cathair Apocalypse. Yes, it is so silly. But I am a mega cat person, so I was hooked.
Then, waiting in line for a panel (about web comics), I got to talking with the guy next to me in line. It turns out he wrote comic books. He gave me a copy of his comic book Boylord. I was really impressed with the art work and production values.
On Sunday, I saw the booth for authors Mark Gelineau and Joe King and talked with them about their YA Fantasy book series. I love how they are taking the reigns and promoting their books at these events. Aren't the covers for these two books gorgeous? And now I am excited to start reading them.
So, what did you get this week? Which books are you excited to read? Let me know in the comments.
