In My Mailbox- Week of May 1 + Retrospective

I have another vlog for you guys with some really awesome books featured. I apologize in advance for the shaky camera at points in the first few minutes. My stupid cat kept moving around on the bed. Normally, they just sit and do nothing, wondering why I'm talking, but this one (Pearl) kept wanting to move around and stuff. Le sigh.

Books Shown:

The Lucky Kind by Alyssa B. Sheinmel (Hardcover, May 2011)
Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions Edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong (ARC, Sept. 2011)
Possess by Gretchen McNeil (ARC, Sept 2011)
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (ARC, Oct 2011)
Vanish by Sophie Jordan (ARC, Sept 2011)
Frost by Marianna Baer (ARC, Sept 2011)
If You Ask Me (and Of Course You Won't) by Betty White (Hardcover from library, May 2011)
From This Moment On by Shania Twain (Hardcover from library, May 2011)

and here's my retrospective for the week:

Monday- I answered two questions about BEA that readers sent me. If you have any others, leave a comment on that post or email me (or, heck, you can even ask in comments on this post).

Tuesday- I reviewed Die for Me by Amy Plum, which is out in stores on May 10!

Wednesday- I posted an Ask Book Chic, where people ask me how I like my birthday cakes, what obstacles I've had to overcome, and something else I cannot remember.

Thursday- I reviewed Abandon by Meg Cabot, which is out in stores now. (Psst... I'm going to see Meg on the 26th in NYC at her This is Teen signing! Who else is going?)

Saturday- I reviewed So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti, which is out in stores now. (Psst again... I'm going to see Susane at the Teen Author Carnival on the 23rd! Anyone else going?)

Also, Lauren Myracle gave me a few tour dates she's got coming up this week (btw, I'm doing an interview with her that's going up later this month, so come back for that), so check it out!
