  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!

    Rachel, *ducks*. Sorry!

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me Your Recs

Guys. We are going on a trip―a trip we have been planning for years. And it is finally happening next week! We're going to visit my parents in France, and we are taking the whole gang. Or rather, all three kids but not the dog. Who I am desperately sad about leaving and really hope he doesn't think we've up and given him to another family and proceed to forget all about us. It's just two weeks. But we've never left him that long before, and I am obviously emotional about it. Have I posted pics of Sodapop here before? I'm not sure that I ever have. Here he is on the day we got him: And here he is now in his natural habitat, which is to say in my library on laundry day: Ahem. 
The actual point of this post is to get your reading recs for the trip! I'm completely torn over which physical books to take with me. Yes, I realize most of my reading will be done on my Kindle by necessity, but I always have to have some physical copies with me. For both safety and I…
