News Update #19 (I think)

So...It's Summer. I'm off school for six weeks. And it looks like the conventional vision of Summer at the moment, as opposed to the British meaning. Yay!

So...what's been going on?
Er, I've gotten lots of books.

School library
-A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
-Paper Towns by John Green
-Coraline by Neil Gaiman
-Transformation by Mary Shelley
-We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
-The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
-The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
-Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
-W.E. by John Dickenson
-Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Other places
-Frostfire by Zoe Marriot (from Walker)
-Devilish by Maureen Johnson and a lot of bookmarks (from Michelle @ Much Loved Books)
-Fallen by Thomas Sniegoski (from Lisa as a book swap)
-The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (from Scholastic)
-Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz (from Mira)
-Annie on my Mind by Nancy Garden (from Caroline @ Portrait of a Woman)
-Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel (from Random House)

Big thanks to everyone who sent me stuff!

And other news...
Emma Mill's Witchcraft and Witchlove have got covers! Well, Witchcraft already had one, but then they changed it.

We now have a very pretty trilogy! For more info, go here.

Cait and Liz's Contemporary Summer is still going! Well, it's nearing the end, but if you like that stuff, go check it out!

We're getting three more books from Will Hill and Harper Collins! Two more in the Department 19 series (which I love) and a standalone.   Can't wait!

I think we have more cast for the City of Bones film! I think we're doing well now... The cast as it is.

I'm still happy for signups for The Month Before Halloween!

And...I'm sure we have some other stuff going on. But I don't have time to go over all that now.

Have a great weekend!


  1. great write up and I love the sound of some of the books you've got! FrostFire is immense and I loved Coraline! :D

  2. Ooo lots of books to keep you occupied! I love the Handmaids Tale (ages since I read it though!) and I read the 'Kevin' book in the winter for book club... wow its a horrid, dark & very disturbing book!

  3. Great haul, I'm glad Devilish and the swag made it there in one piece. I am really looking forward to reading The Raven Boys, I've read Spellbound from netgalley but I really enjoyed the next book more.

    Thanks for stopping by

  4. Wow you got some great books! I hope you enjoy The Raven Boys. I just finished it recently and loved it. Frostfire looks great too! Great haul! :)

  5. Yay thanks for the mention =] I really really want to read The Raven Boys so I'm v. envious. Got The Handmaid's Tale to read...really need to!! Hopefully this weather will keep up ;)

    Enjoy your summer of reading :)
