Meaghan runs the blog A Bookworm's Haven, which is AWESOME. Go check it out. And here's my retrospective:

Monday- I reviewed Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund, which has gotten no comments! What's up with that? Go show it some love!

Wednesday- I posted the 12th edition of Ask Book Chic and am running a contest that goes until 11:59 PM on October 5. The prize is an ARC of Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and all you have to do to enter is ask me a question to use in future editions of Ask Book Chic! So go enter!

Thursday- I reviewed Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay, which is out in stores now. Note: This is an adult book.

Friday- I posted my Fragment Friday, where I read an excerpt from I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett.

Saturday- I reviewed I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett, which is out in stores now.


  1. Some great books this week, I have I Was Jane Austens Best Friend with the UK cover which is completely different! The cat made a cameo at the end!!

  2. oh you have so many books I am longing for! Jealous!

    BTW I am almost 100% sure I commented on your Ascendant review, maybe blogger is now eating your comments too. I'm going to try again now.

  3. Revolution is REALLY good! I don't know your reading taste well enough to say for sure if you will like it, but I was really sucked into the story - especially to the historical fiction sections and historical fiction is generally not my favorite.

  4. I REALLY want that copy of Anna. I have to wait until November, since it releases in Australia (Penguin) in January and that's when they stock the final copies, I believe.

    But yeah, anyway, great books as always. Really excited to read Rev, as well as Unearthly!

    Check out what I got this week here

  5. Oooh, can't wait to hear your thoughts on REVOLUTION. Obvi, it's challenging to share my thoughts here, but...wow. Definitely much to talk about with this one. Can't wait to read your review!

  6. Revolution is great! You should definitely give it a chance.

  7. I'm about halfway through Revolution and I think it's pretty good. You got a lot of really great books this week! Thanks for sharing :)

  8. Yay, I am so glad you are excited about The Lost Saint! It is a good, one so I hope you like it :) And yes, I loved Unearthly, such a great book! Thanks for mentioning me, I <3 The Book Chic!
