Huzzah to Book Binging! There is nothing quite as tasty as a good book! If you can’t tell I have a serious book buying and acquiring addiction! Heck, I don’t know a book blogger that doesn’t. If I don’t grab at least as many books as there are number of days in a week I start to go through withdrawals.
So what’s more fun than jumping around and seeing what everyone else has added to their shelves for the week? For that reason I link up two these two lovely ladies:
The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews.
I’ve been really good lately by controlling myself on the number of books I’ve requested the past 1-2 months because I knew I would be going to BEA this coming week. With that said – there are only 3 books this week – I know amazing how much self control I have right? One was a gift from my marvelous fellow blogger friend Mogsy @ The Bibliosanctum. Thanks my dear!
Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris | Goodreads | A gift from Mogsy! I can’t wait to read it!
Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne | Goodreads | – super excited to read this one.
Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz | Goodreads | – This one was a total surprise as I didn’t request it. Hopefully it’s good, I have read 2 or 3 of her various books and have mostly been middle of the road on them so far. But I did hear her Blue Bloods books were the best and this looks to be the first in a new spin off series. So we’ll see.
BEA OR BUST!
So it’s that time of year again when all the folks that are going to be heading to BEA are furiously compiling their spreadsheets that will make up their crazed schedule for the marathon book grab that is BEA. Ok so it’s not only a book grab, its a chance to meet tons of authors, get your books signed, meet lots of awesome fellow bloggers and see what books are being showcased for the rest of the year. I guest posted yesterday over at OH, THE BOOKS! about the types of Book Conventions and how to know which kind is for you.
I was lucky enough to attend last year and had myself a blast (You can read about my trip last year on my BEA 2013 wrap up post). This year I have to admit the excitement hasn’t sunk in yet. Maybe it is because I know what I’m in for but also because this year I’m just tired because of work and stress. I haven’t even had time to put my own plan of attack spreadsheet together. But luckily my lovely ladies Jen from At Random and Anya from On Starships & Dragonwings are helping me out in that arena by sharing some of their book planning with me. I’m also excited to say that I’ll be sharing a hotel room with Anya and Kim from The Midnight Garden.
My apologies if I’m very slow at commenting back this weekend I’m in a wedding today and then I have furious packing to do. Lots of scheduling of posts and then heck I’ll be out of town for a week without access to my PC because I have no laptop currently just an ipad! So if you visit no worries I’ll be in touch – It’ll just take me a few days. In the meantime Maggie and Tina will be around and hopefully visiting about while I’m gone!
What books are you binging on this week!?
