Happy Saturday! It is the first week of my summer vacation, and I couldn't be more happy. I have been staying up late reading and waking up at 7:00am (very late for me). So I have been having so much fun. I also took a serious look at my TBR on my Kindle and joined the COYER (Clean Out Your E-Reader) Challenge. There are 22 books I need to read! So I am trying to read one or more e-books a week...Starting next week! This week has been all about reading the gigantic Lady Midnight, by Cassandra Clare. It is 669 pages of awesome!
BTW: If you like this blog, I would really appreciate a follow. Just put your method of following in a comment, and I will follow you back! Thanks and happy reading.
Read This week:
I loved Lady Midnight. The Shadowhunting world is back, baby! I was not so impressed with The Life-changing Magic Of Tidying Up. I lived in Japan for three years, so I understand the need to live without many material things. Japanese homes simply are not that big. One must throw out old things. But I objected to getting rid of mementos such as photographs and letters. I can't do that. I just can't.
New from NetGalley:
What can I say? I love Jay Kristoff's storytelling, so I am over the moon that I got accepted to read this book through NetGalley.
This looks like such a fun book! I can't wait to read it.
Bought during B'Fest:
I saw Wendy Spinale last two weeks ago at the Bay Area Book Festival, but I waited until now to buy her book, Everland. She was super nice to my daughter and her friend, and signed the book, "To Princess Jenny"! That is what I called her when she was very young. Amazing.
From The Author:
I met this author at the Bay Area Book Festival. The novel seems to be about mermaids, so I couldn't resist.
From The Publisher:
Thank you, HarperCollins and author Lois Metzger for the finished copy of Change Places With Me. I read an advanced readers copy and am posting a review of it on June 21st. I really enjoyed this book, and the finished hardcover is so lovely. Lots of flowery details on the pages!
That is it for now. I hope everyone gets to read, sip a refreshing beverage and have an exhilarating week.
