This past week on my blog, I reviewed Book Two of The Walking Dead series. I found that I liked this one more than Book One and am anxious to read Book Three now. =) I also reviewed Die For Me by Amy Plum, which has proven to have produced my most mixed review to date. I ended the week with a post on why I did not finish Anne Cassidy’s Dead Time, which releases this week.
I also shared with my YAdystopia/post-apocalyptic author rendition of SURVIVOR for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which made its way around the Twittersphere courtesy of @AndrewFukuda. Patrick Ness would like everyone to know that I was wrong…people would vote for HIM, not Michael Grant! But to each person his own opinion. =)
I also joined in the Bout of Books Readathon, which helped motivate me to get out of my reading slump. I met a lot of new people on twitter and read a lot of good books! You can see my progress page here!
During this past week, I finished 5 books—Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare, Bunheads by Sophie Flack, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin, and City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. I would have had one more book completed, but I put down Anne Cassidy’s Dead Time (for reasons see above).
In the world of Bookish News, I have made a reading list tab for the 2012 YALLFest author line-up! It is freakin’ AMAZING!!! You can get to it by clicking here or checking out the YALLFest Tab at the top of the page! Woah!!!! I am so excited!!
And now, for this week’s Book Haul!
