Last month I wasn't able to go to the Cassandra Clare signing in St. Louis like I had planned, but the awesome Emma who has been trying forever to get me to a signing with her (one day!) was nice enough to get my copy of City of Bones signed and also get my sister's copy of City of Glass signed. She even sent me a poster and a bookmark. 

Also last month I got a birthday package from my wonderful amazing friend Sab! *does happy dance* Inside was a signed copy of If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This book is one of my all time favorite reads and bonus Sab got me the paperback which has my favorite cover on it :) Thanks again Sab!! You rocks my socks :)

Even though I already showed it once in the above pile, I have to give a special spotlight to the book I'm currently reading:

I'm only half way through, but I think this is going to be one of my favorite debuts of 2010! I love a main male character and Mindi has hit the nail on the head with Seth.

All right kids, that's it for me. What did you get this week and what are you reading?

Wow, I am so wanting some of those books!

Okay, Vampire Kisses...I read 1-3 and 7. They are cute, fast reads and def. for the younger crowd. I interviewd Ellen a couple of weeks ago and will post the video this coming Friday.

Awesome week! You're lucky to get Grace - can't wait to hear what you think of that one. And signed books! Yay! So cool.

I'm glad you're enjoying Freefall. I'm looking forward to it even more now.

Happy reading as always!

Leanna Elle said...

Amazing books this week! You got lots that I want to read such as The Eternal Ones and Haunting Emma. Hope you love them!

I must check out Freefall - I haven't heard of it before!

Ah! Such great books! :]
I am quite jealous of your signed copy of If I Stay. Gayle is so sweet.

Loving all the book you got this week, especially Grace and You Wish.

What a great hall! Deception was pretty good, and I'm about halfway through Raised by Wolves myself.

I've read Vampire Kisses #1-5. They're really quick reads (never took more than an afternoon to finish). They're cute and light and fluffy. And they're not like so many paranormal YAs that are much darker when dealing with vampires and such. I think you'll enjoy it.

Here's my IMM
