So, for review, via the post, I got Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, Will Grayson Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan, and The Things We Did for Love by Natasha Farrant.
I also got Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey, which I ordered off Amazon.
Then the lovely Rosi emailed round telling of netgalley awesomeness. So my kindle received Department 19 Battle Lines by Will Hill, and some other things.
Then I went to the Hot Key Books/Templar Books thing. And this is when my book holding devices start finding knives and other suitable instruments....
I now have
- Me, Suzy P by Karen Saunders
- Arcadia Burns by Kai Meyer
- Ferryman by Claire McFall
- Last Chance Angel by Alex Gutterridge
- The Savages by Matt Whyman
- The Beautiful and The Cursed by Page Morgan
- Death and Co by D. J. McCune
- Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield
- Stray by Monica Hesse
- The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
- Red Ink by Julie Mayhew
- The Quietness by Alison Rattle
I'm not sure when I'll read them. I might just give some away, because they wouldn't stand out to me in a bookshop, and I really don't have time to read anything. We'll see in a couple of weeks.
Anyway, I'm now on a complete book obtaining ban. At least in theory. I shall try.
It was really nice meeting so many people! As well as Karen, Claire, Matt, Alex, Julie and Alison, and all you cool publishing people, there were lots of bloggers.
- Megan, the Book Addicted Girl
- Andrew, Pewter Wolf
- Stacey from Pretty Books
- M & Little M from We Sat Down
- Viv from Serendipity Reviews
- Luna from Luna's Little Library
- Kirsty from The Overflowing Library
- Daphne from Winged Reviews
- Georgia from Books and Writers Junior
- Darren from Book Zonefor Boys
- Michelle from Much Loved Books
- Sarah from Feeling Fictional
- Most likely some others.
It was lovely talking to all of you!
Also...I need a new tagline! What do you think of any of these?
- Life's too short to read bad books
- Life's too short to read Twilight.
- Have tea, will read.
I wanted to go for the second one, but some (slightly saner) people thought that it might insult Twilight fans. I'd quite like a variation of a well known quote, but changed to fit death ,books or tea. Tell me in the comments, or add your own! If I take one, I'll give whoever came up with it a £5 Amazon/Book Depository voucher!
Finally, I'm insanely jealous of everyone who's going to see John Green later. How's everyone else?
