Waiting on Wednesday: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

From Goodreads:

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed “Daughter of Smoke and Bone,” Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she’ll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a “must read” by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by Amazon.com, and The New York Times called it “a breath-catching romantic fantasy.”

The first book was frigging amazing and I doubt this one will be any less. Also, how awesome is that cover? Expected publication date is November 6, 2012.

In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

So I have been seriously negligent on posting IMMs for the past few weeks. In my defense…I have no defense, actually. I’ve just not felt like recording vlogs and that led to me not doing anything altogether. Dumb. I don’t even have any pretty pictures, since I’m not on my usual computer and I don’t have books with me. So instead, I offer you this gif of a bulldog watching tv:

Anyway, this is what I’ve gotten over the past couple of weeks.

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin
Touched by Cyn Balog
The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab
Velveteen by Daniel Marks
The Little Woods by McCormick Templeman
Blackwood by Gwenda Bond

Literally passed a solid gold brick out of a certain orifice when I saw that I had been approved for these. Random House Children’s Books and Angry Robot are AWESOME.

Awesome reads ahoy!

In my mailbox is  a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. This is my second attempt at vlogging. Sidenote on the video below: I realize that you can change the still picture when you upload a video but this one is so hilariously unfortunate that I can’t bring myself to do so. It’s like someone actually went through the video frame by frame and picked out the worst and most mortifying shot they could find. And since I’m my own favorite thing to laugh at, this amuses me to no end.
