Week in Review & IMM

IN MY MAILBOX: 12.18.11

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!

CURRENT GIVEAWAY:

Check back later today when I post a review that should have gone up, er...yesterday.  But I had to finish reading first... ^^;;

READING NOW:

*DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver (Re-read), followed by PANDEMONIUM
*ASPHODEL by Lauren Hammond (This book is less than 170 pages.  I have been reading it for over a week.  That's how busy I've been...!)
*CANDLEWAX by C. Bailey Sims [out April 3, 2012] (Again, I've been chipping away at this one very slowly.  Gotta love the holidays...)


[link to my GoodReads account so you can see my blurb feed as I read]


READ THIS WEEK:

This is actually for the last TWO weeks.  And, um, I didn't read much of anything last week...I just chipped away at ASPHODEL (see above), which I'm finally nearing the end of!  I normally read 3-5 books in a week.  I've chipped away at two and finished three (one was under two hundred pages, the other under three hundred, and the third just over three hundred, so they were all relatively short, too!).

*THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT by Jennifer E. Smith

*FLYAWAY by Helen Landalf (Again, I hoped to get this review to you this past week, alas...)

*THE INTERNATIONAL KISSING CLUB by Ivy Adams (Mmm, should have reviewed this on tour yesterday but, um...had to finish reading it first!)

REVIEWED THIS WEEK (TWO WEEKS):

*ASHA IN TIME by Mandy Nachampassack-Maloney (Blog Tour Stop)

(So sorry for so few reviews in December, bookworms.  I'll make it up to you in January!  This month has been so busy for me!!)

Loot:

The holiday edition!  Happy New Year, everyone!!

What's your resolution?  How'd you do last year?

In 2010, I blogged about 38 entries in an entire YEAR.  In 2011, I vowed to blog more frequently.  Now, I often have almost that many entries in ONE MONTH.  Crazy!!

This year, my resolution is to finally finish writing Super Secret Project FizzyPop, revise it, and start the querying process.  Wish me luck...and kick my butt if I get lazy again!  I haven't written since the summer...

  3. Hey Bonnie! Glad to see you got some lovely new books. :)

    Looks like we both got Legend and Sweetly. :)

    As for the writing, you really do need to get going on that. I'm not much better though. :p Revision for Moon Dance is going SLOW. *shakes head*

    Anyway, Happy New Year!
