Monday Morning Visits

Phew. Back from a weekend trip and trying to get caught up on everything from family to work to blog, etc. Just a couple of stops worth making this Monday morning.
Penguin interviewed the very lovely Moira Moore about her Heroes series and the recently released fifth installment--Heroes Return. You can read my review of the book here, but I definitely suggest going over and checking out the Penguin interview for a fix on all your Lee & Taro needs.
Lenore of Presenting Lenore is in full swing mode during her Dystopian August extravaganza! She's got interviews, giveaways, roundups of blogger reviews of dystopian books, and more. So if you've been wanting to read a dystopian novel and review it on your site, now is your chance to join in and see what all the fuss is about.
Lastly, the Book Smugglers are pressing forward with their second annual Young Adult Appreciation Month. They're churning out lots and lots of reviews of young adult novels, including Ana's take on a favorite of mine--How I Live Now--and there are author interviews, giveaways, and fun galore. Stop on by and be sure to contribute your own post on YA on the 15th!

    I hope you had a great trip!

    Thanks for linking to the Moira J Moore interview. I loved what she had to say about music, Japan and her influences. You know I love when Lee reacts to music and wish it happened more often. It's uncomfortable for her, but it always leads to fun outcomes. The interview also made me remember how much I enjoyed reading Heroes Adrift. Taro's discomfort was so entertaining!

    By the way, the interview didn't indicate whether there's a 7th book, which concerns me. But I'm glad she said she's having fun writing the 6th.

  5. Lenore, I can tell! I'm glad I'm back and can keep tabs on everything. :)

    Michelle, yup. Listening to her talk about her two jobs fascinates me. They seem so very different and such great ways of channeling her strengths.

    Karen, it was great. Incredibly busy, but great. And I agree with you completely on Lee and her reaction to music. It's a genius touch in her books and it really should play a larger role. So Taro can save her some more and so there could be some really excellent stuff between them. ;) It's her one weakness and it should be explored more. That one time in HEROES ADRIFT hasn't been quite enough for me...

    And I, too, am very worried about the lack of mention of a 7th book. I know right now she only has a contract through book six, but hopefully Ace will buy another one, if that's what she needs to wrap up the series satisfactorily.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Triple Prize Pack Giveaway!

Not long ago I discovered a few of you tweeting to get me to the 300 follower mark. As little things I read on Twitter often do, that one sort of made my day. You're all really too sweet for words and I joked that perhaps it was time for a giveaway. The truth is I've been in the mood to have one for awhile now and this is as good a time as any. So here's the deal. This will be a triple prize pack giveaway , meaning there are three packs and you can indicate which one you'd like to be entered to win in the comments. I will choose three random winners and contact them. This giveaway is open to anywhere The Book Depository ships! Here's the list of countries , FYI.
