New info on Book Signings- My signing that I'll go to August is now covered- Maggie Stiefvater is holding her book launch for Shiver on Friday, August 7 in Williamsburg, VA. I'm gonna do my best to go to it. Hey, maybe I can make it a habit to go to all of Maggie's launch parties. I was there for Lament's and now will be there for Shiver's. Since she lives in VA, it shouldn't be a problem at all. I'll be your launch party buddy, Maggie! LOL. :)


  1. Wow, a lot of people have been getting Tempo Change lately. It looks like a really interesting read, and I love the cover! Happy reading!

  2. Hey!!! you got some great books this week. I have Tempo Change in my TBR pile and will have to devour it soon. It looks to cute to pass up.

    I hope you read The Awakening sooon, because it is friggin' awesome. Actually better then it predecessor.

    I am glad that your going to see Maggie again. I hope that she comes out my way. I will be going to DC in July to RWA and I hope to see you there :)

  3. What a great week! =] Can't wait for the reviews. Happy reading!

  4. Whoo hoo . . . and of course the goal is to make each launch party successively bigger until eventually it's like my Launch State of Virginia. ;p

  5. Silver Phoenix is good, I think you'll like it! Excellent book week! I got Mare's War and the other book too... ooops! forgot to mention those! I love baby kitties! I want to see Maggie! Tell her to go north a little bit more! Happy reading!

  6. I've recently read The Chosen One. The book is so AWESOME! Ahhh!! I'm so hungry right now, I think I might puke....

  7. Those are some excellent books. Happy reading!

  8. The Chosen One is just so good. I've been meaning to read the Guinevere books myself. Happy reading!

  9. Wow what a great book week! Hope you enjoy reading them all!

  10. Do you know if that policy is becuse of the bookstore or the auther becuse i have a booksining for the supernatural summer tour and i was plaining on bring a pic
    of the cover of the books i didint buy

  11. Melanie- I should see what the summary says, lol. I haven't had a chance to look at it. Would you maybe want it for keeps? Let me know- my email addy is somewhere on here, lol.

    Ravenous Reader- I should be getting to The Awakening very soon. I just have to finish up SplitScreen and Allie Finkle 3 first, and then I'm gonna get started on those books I had you guys vote on. :) Where do you live? Maybe I'll poke Maggie into going there, lol. For RWA, we should chat more closer to the date so we can hang out at the signing and author-stalk, hehe. :)

    Kate- Thanks! Keep an eye out for my reviews here! :)

    Maggie- Haha. And then after that, it'll be Launch Party of the East Coast, right? Or will you just go straight for the whole of the US? lol. :P I really hope I can make it!! Oh and Kristi (below you) says you need to go north a bit more so she can see you. DO IT.

    Kristi- Haha, don't worry- I forgot about The Sorceress and After the Moment in my vlog. They were in a different pile further away and so I missed them. Next week though. I'm excited about reading Silver Phoenix- it seems like a wonderful read! And I have two videos of the baby kitties up on my Youtube page- go check them out! :)

    Letter Garden- I know, I'm so excited to read it! And thanks for the mental image, lol. Go eat something then!!

    Liyana and Amelia- Thanks!!

    PolishOutlander- I've never even heard of the Guinevere books before, lol. I'm kinda hoping my library has the first book so I can donate this second book to their collection.

    ShareYouSweetTread- It's just that particular indie bookstore that has that policy, though maybe other bookstores do too. But I don't think chain stores would have a policy like that. Indie stores however do need the money, so that's probably the need for the policy.

  12. You got ALOT of great books. Happyreading!

  13. You sure got some great books. Enjoy.

  14. You got some pretty awesome books. Fairy Tale looks awesome.
