Week in Review: The Birthday Edition

T h e  B i r t h d a y  E d i t i o n !

I had a birthday this past week, and was lucky enough to receive some fabulous books as presents that I've been coveting!


*Nothing active.  Finished a book last night!

*SIRENZ: BACK IN FASHION by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman {Need to make time to pick this back up!}

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

*FROSTFIRE by Zoë Marriott
*BECAUSE IT IS MY BLOOD by Gabrielle Zevin
*CREWEL by Gennifer Albin

*OFF BALANCE by Dominique Moceanu

*Cover Art REVEALED: STORY'S END by Marissa Burt
*Mythological Mondays: The Birth of the Olympics
*Mad About Nails: The Olympic Edition
*Is it a bookcase...or a musical stage to perform on?


Birthday Gifts:

{Not a book, but based on the novel A TALE OF TWO CITIES by Charles Dickens.  A lot of the cast is made up of LES MIS alumni and the show was created by Frank Wildhorn (JEKYLL & HYDE, THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL, WONDERLAND, etc.), so I'm looking forward to finally watching this!}

*LIBERATOR by Bryan Davis
{I'm not a HUGE dragon fan, but STARLIGHTER introduced me to such an intriguing, desolate world, and I can't wait to see how everything ends.}

*THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY AND OTHER WORKS (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics) by Oscar Wilde
{I've been waiting for an Oscar Wilde leatherbound to add to my collection, especially since there are so many things by Wilde that I've been wanting to go back to!}

*THE PRISONER OF HEAVEN by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
{If you like books about, well, books, and haven't read THE SHADOW OF THE WIND or THE ANGEL'S GAME, what are you waiting for?  Once you finish, there's THE PRISONER OF HEAVEN to look forward to!}

*A cute Japanese notebook
{...because how can a writer ever have too many notebooks?}
{My favorite type!}

*Three boxes of Prismacolor Col-Erase Correction Pencils
{Blogger Tiffany Schmidt did a trial-and-error with every type of correction pencil, and author Nova Ren Suma (IMAGINARY GIRLS) mentioned that professional copy-editors use Col-Erase.  I'm excited to try these out!  But...I guess I forgot to mention that I wanted green (or, more likely, that element was overlooked), because I wound up with pencils in green, blue, and red! ^^;; }

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Happy Birthday. Great week. Like the journal you got. Those are some nice books, especially the Barnes and Noble Classics.
