Hello ladies and gents and non-gendered folk. How are you out there in book world? I’m sick as a dog with a head cold plague but trying to keep in good spirits. I spent two straight days alternatively sleeping and reading. So, I read quite a lot and I’m on the road to feeling good.
Ish. (Probably more ish at this point than good.)
And here’s what I received this week.
So yeah… lots of books. Some I have read and some I have not. It’s all good, just adding them to Mount-Not-Read and Mount-To-Be-Read. Someday… someday.
Also, in all things blurby, this has been happening over on Goodreads.
So, that is all sorts of nifty. I like the mileage that Penguin is getting out of that Archetype blurb. Makes me feel all sorts of warm and fuzzy.
I have a pile of books I have to review this week. I’m currently reading a couple of freelance, so those I can’t talk about until the reviews are released. In the interim I have a couple of MUST-READ-NOW! books on the list. Most importantly is Rachel Caine’s Prince of Shadows (which I am behind on getting a review in for. Whoops). and Ryan Graudin’s All That Glows (no spoilers on either book, please!). Beyond that I have to read Hounded by Kevin Hearne with a group read-a-long soon.
In other news, Anya from On Starships and Dragonwings and I are planning a read-a-long weekend in a few weeks. The plan is to hunker down and read as much as possible in that two-day period and blog about it. I am welcoming everyone out there to join us in our endeavor. It’s the weekend of February 28 through March 2, 2014. I have a series of books that I am eying, so we should be all good. Just need to get enough caffeine and goodies in the house to prevent us from killing each other and we’ll be fine. *grins*
So, with that I am off. What are you reading right now and what are you looking forward to read?
