  9. Pretties! I'm so glad I went to BEA too or I'd be sooooo envious! I really like how this picture has a border around it. How do you get that? It's cool.

  12. Janssen, next year...next year...repeat it like a mantra. :)

    Jennie, I think I grabbed a copy of everything I could. It was like a feast.

    Mandi, grin. I understand. I have a hard time believing it myself!

    Kath, those were the three I was most excited about I think! I just finished FIRE last night and cannot wait to review it. Really looking forward to FOREST BORN and CATCHING FIRE.

    mjmbecky, lol. I will enjoy. And I will be giving away some of them, too. So stay tuned!

    Liza, I know. *sigh* The stacks are multiplying and migrating throughout the house!

    Harmony, they are all galleys I picked up at BEA (Book Expo America).

    Janice, I'm so glad you went too! The secret to my border is a Photoshopping husband. ;)

    Liviana, thanks! I think fun is in the cards this time.

    Kay, it really is serious. I'm gonna have to come up with some sort of system for deciding which one to read next.

    I'm so glad you got a copy of Soulless. I meant to ask you if you knew about it when we were waiting on the Ballad line. It looks very interesting!

    I also took pictures of my books even though I don't plan to post them anywhere. I was just so pleased with everything I picked up, I wanted a picture.

  18. Karen, I'm really looking forward to SOULLESS. She seemed very nice and offered me tea and cookies after signing my book. :) And I would love to see your picture of your haul!

    Chelle, I plan on plowing through the stack.

    Rachel, *ducks*. Sorry!

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken 's debut novel-- Brightly Woven --last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here . As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Woven first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in

Interview with Diana Peterfreund + Rampant Giveaway!

Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meani
