And here's my retrospective:

Monday- I premiered my Meandering Monday feature where I ramble about random things, though this week I was a bit focused so as to unveil my new schedule for the next couple weeks.

Tuesday- I reviewed Stork by Wendy Delsol, which is out in stores now.

Wednesday- I unveiled the cover for Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers and also answered questions in Ask Book Chic and put out the call for new questions. This of course means a contest- you can win an advance copy of Delirium by Lauren Oliver. The contest ends Dec. 10, so get your questions in soon!

Thursday- I reviewed Matched by Ally Condie, which is out in stores now.

Friday- I read from Rosebush by Michele Jaffe as part of Fragment Friday. Rosebush's official release date is Dec. 9, but some stores may already have it out!

Saturday- I reviewed Indigo Blues by Danielle Joseph, which is out in stores now.


  1. James, you are the sweetest! I am so glad you are excited about the books :) I love to be able to share, plus I <3 u too!

  2. I'm doing some serious coveting right now. You got some awesome books! I hope you enjoy them and can't wait to hear what you think about them.

    You know, thinking back, I think you were the first person who mentioned The Summoning to me *grins*

    Happy reading!

  3. Wow you did get quite the number of books! I believe I picked up the first Tapestry book in the store last month as it caught my eye. I love the covers! I *think* it is middle grade?

    It's a series that's on my radar anyhow. ;)

    Just thought I'd pop by and let you know that. I haven't commented in a loooong time. Sorry, James!

  4. @Bookchicclub(James),

    There go the cats again lol! Great vlog and I'm so, so jealous! Especially pertaining to those last few books you mentioned, A Touch Mortal, Fallen Angel, and so forth. Gosh, I hope you like all of them and I've gotta remember to stop by and check out your reviews!


  5. Fab books! Especially Iron Thorn and Cryer's Cross.

  7. Hi James - Thanks for mentioning me in your vlog. Very exciting! I hope you enjoy the book as much as you're hoping to. Fingers crossed from London ... sophia xxx
