I've been pathetic lately about reading, I know. Hopefully this week I'll get at least 4 or 5 books read. If not 10.

And a quick update:

  • I now have 100+ followers, which means I'm plotting to give away a book I'm reading this week - any guesses to which one? All will be revealed later...
  • On Saturday, I plan to post my first author interview with Jack Regan, author of T'Aragam. I am part of his virtual book tour! Yay!
  • I hope to get my last review and an awards post up today. Maybe not right now.. but today, sometime.
Thanks for tuning in! And let me know what you are reading!


  1. I'm curious to read your review on Graceling, it was one of my reads this week too and I loved it. Have a good reading week!

  2. ***SCREAM*** You have "Hush, Hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick. I wanna read that one!! Bet it is gonna be sooooooo awesome.

  3. I've never read Anne of Green Gables but I use to love the movie.

    Oooo and Hush, Hush and Catching Fire, those will be good.

  4. I'm reading The Hunger Games and I think it will be one of my favorite books by the time I finish it.

    My friends tell me The Name of the Wind is a fun read even though they say the main character is a Gary Stu.

    As a reader, I'm mixed on what to think about Hush, Hush. Is this going to be romance for teens with a fantasy/sci-fi backdrop or will it be a chilling tale that deals with the dangers of love and the choices we make for it?
    As an artist, I'm thinking 'wow, look at that amazing font and the composition is really cool, I want to read this now!'

  5. wow, you have some great books on your list. hope you like most them because I've heard great things on most :)
    Here's my list :)
    happy reading :)

  6. Hi, Kristen -

    I found your blog through The Little Bookworm, and I'm really enjoying it! Your job sounds awesome!

    I loved The Hunger Games and can't wait for Catching Fire.

    And The Ride of Our Lives is one of my all-time favorites! It's such a great story. Did you see the videos on the Today Show a couple of years ago? Be sure to watch the DVD that comes with the book.

    I have two book blogs, one for grown-up books at and one for kids/teens at

    I'll be back (and I will sign up to follow you). Nice to "meet" you -


  7. Nice list! Have a good week.


Leave some love!
