Still around folks… just a bit busy (with a smattering of proscratination)! I’m reading a whole lot more of other people’s blogs and not keeping up with my own 😛
I finally got my second huge book haul! I waited a whole extra week to get it, since it was sent home and I live on campus. But, oh, that wonderful feeling! For me? A package? Why, thank you! (proceed with decimation of cardboard box in which the books were nestled)
Thanks to your dedicated efforts at reviewing some of these books, I have spent quite a hefty sum on internet shopping. Then, waiting with increasing impatience for the package to arrive (literally, I waited a whole MONTH, by then, some of the books had already arrived at the local bookstore…*sigh* I am a victim of my own impatience).
Some of the goodies I got:
– Lonely werewolf girl by Martin Millar
– The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
– The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt
– Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling
– After Dark by Haruki Murakami
– The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
– The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
– Graceling by Kristin Cashore
– Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliasotti
So lovely! Such intriguing plots and deep thoughts! Such pretty covers for book lovers!
And, also, I won by first book – Prospero Lost! From Graeme, at Graeme’s Fantasy. I checked my email at the wee hours of the morning, just before class, and quietly shrieked with delight so as not to wake any of my roomates up (they’re all lazy bums and wake up 5 mins before class :P) Ah, the joy of winning a free book!
So expect a nice, slow, leisurely trickle of book reviews but lots of obsessive comments and blog visiting from me for a while!
