Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book BenderÂ recap and share blog events from the week, and talk about what they’re reading.Â Now they’re letting the rest of us join in the fun! Head over to Amanda’s blog if you’d like to participate and link up.
- A 5 star review of Grave MercyÂ by Robin LaFevers
- Yesterday was the annual national event Free Comic Book Day. I dragged my husband to my local comic book store to pick up free books, and tried out a new store as well. I even got a book signed by the author, which was fun.
- I sat through almost 8 hours of theater this weekend (The Iceman Cometh and CATS), plus saw The Avengers. I’m exhausted about watching stuff and paying attention.
- I’m nearing the end of my migration to WordPress, thanks to Cialina at Paper Wings Design Studio.
- Look for my Spring Blog Carnival game and giveaway tomorrow!
- I continue to slog through two different manuscripts and waste many, many hours getting myself familiar with WP.org.
- The organizers at Armchair BEA put out a call for sponsors. Put your publishing contacts to work!
- Alison Can Read is giving away a copy of The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa!
- Ruby is hosting another Saturday Swap at Ruby’s Reads. Have books you’re dying to trade? Here’s your chance!
- Stephanie at Poetry to Prose shared the cover to Prodigy by Marie Lu, the follow-up to Legend. She also linked to the USA Today article, where you can read the first chapter! I’m so excited to read this one.
- The Apocalypsies (2012 debut authors) are hosting another YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes giveaway extravaganza. Go, now, and meet lots of debut authors and enter to win lots of cool stuff.
- design for game of thrones – not much help here, I’m afraid
- fire stoningÂ – Don’t mess with me!
Cindy at Princess Bookie clears her personal bookshelves every so often, and puts the books up for sale. She posts a list and asks people to choose what they want and you name your own price. I rarely can resist her sales because she always has books I want. So I picked up 7 books on the cheap!
I own the first two books in the Ivy series (not that I’ve read them yet), so I wanted to complete my set. The Ghost and the Goth was highly reviewed by Small Review, and I trust her opinion.
Funny aside – My husband saw The Ghost and the Goth cover and immediately began making fun of me. Him: “You know, that cover makes it really hard for me to tell what the book is about. I think it must be something dark and serious. What’s it about anyway?” Â Me: “It’s a really complicated metaphor. You wouldn’t understand.”
