The Perks of Being a Bookseller: Part 48

  • February 17, 2014


It’s been a week. I was quoted in a New York Times Article (which most of you know by now). And I read Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick, which doesn’t release until October. I’m currently reading Prototype by M.D. Waters, which releases in July. So I would call that a win.

Meanwhile, here’s what came in this week.


For those of you paying attention week to week, that is a second ARC copy of Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige (Full Fathom Five). I am still ambivalent if I wish to read it since it is a FFF packaged book, and I think James Frey is a piece of work. However, the Oz fan in me from my childhood is railing at the book. So I may pick up the first chapter out of curiosity.

The Immortal Crown equals a win in my book though. I am completely geeked to see what happens in the second book. Completely.

I have two or three “must-review-now!” books to attend to as soon as possible. I let a book release date go by in favour for another one. I’m getting too many now. Even the e-copies are passing me by. It’s strange, but still rewarding. I wouldn’t change what I am doing for anything.

…Except maybe painting. But that’s another discipline.

I’m trying to keep up with so many titles now. I have a priority pile list in my computer with now fewer than, oh, fifty titles or so. They’re all things that are exciting me. I just need to ration them out. I have A LOT of B and C-list books. We’ll see what happens. I’m trying.

(Still wouldn’t change it.)


 I think that’s about it folks. What are you reading right now? What are you looking forward to read most?
