Weekly Update #17

So...not much has happened in personal terms, but in booky  terms...WOW.

 I learnt this week (I'm a lot slow) that Ray Bradbury died a few weeks ago. I really liked Something Wicked This Way Comes, and I really need to get round to reading Farenheit 451. RIP Ray Bradbury...
On a much happier note,  A Monster Calls won both the Carnegie AND the Greenaway, a historic event that will probably be hard for any book to repeat. Oh, and Patrick Ness won twice in a row. You can read about us fangirling here.

Here's what I got this week...
Won from Raimy-Rawr, Queen of Teen compilation book.
From libraries:
Wither by Lauren Destefano
Shift by Em Bailey
The Coming of the Terraphiles by Michael Moorcock
Clockwork and Corsets -compilation
Dark Inside- Jeyn Roberts
Ash-Malinda Lo
Shadows on Baker Street-compilation
Clockwork Prince-Cassandra Clare

I only just remembered that the name for a compilation is an anthology. Oops. week is Japanese Fiction Week. It's an extension of the Japanese YA Week Caroline (Portrait of a Woman) and I did, only this time we get Laura (Sister Spooky) and Andrew (The Pewter Wolf) too! Have fun this week.
