Week in Review: The PAYA Signing Edition

T h e  P A Y A  S i g n i n g  E d i t i o n !

I went to PAYA last weekend and met (or re-met, as the case may be) so many amazing authors.  I wound up buying six books for the event, and if you saw my PAYA Recap Video, you'll know that I got at least double-that signed!

If you haven't watched the video, you should, because you have a chance to win some fun event swag!

Physical Arcs / Finished Copies:

*SON by Lois Lowry
{Out Oct. 02, 2012}
{THE GIVER has always been one of my favorite "had to read in school" books.  I still love it.  I've been wanting to re-read it and the two companions GATHERING BLUE and THE MESSENGER for a while and haven't been able to justify the time.  With SON on the horizon tying everything together, now I can feel good about re-reading this!}


*NEVERMORE by James Patterson
{I've been wanting to read this one for a long time, but a bit of it has been spoiled for me, so now I just...am no longer in the mood to read it.  Give it some time....}

*SPARK by Brigid Kemmerer
{Review finally coming soon!  I've been sitting on this one forever.  SPARK is definitely my favorite book by Brigid so far.  I loved finally meeting her at PAYA!}

{I hear that this one is AMAZING.  Plus, she has a Printz Honor, which is high praise indeed!  I've been wanting to read this for a while!}

*TOUCH OF POWER by Maria V. Snyder
{I've read INSIDE OUT and OUTSIDE IN, but never read TOUCH OF POWER when everyone buzzed about it  because it reminded me of THE SHIFTER by Janice Hardy, which was still fresh in my mind at the time.  I decided to try this one out at the signing because they were sold out of POISON STUDY.}

*SHADE, SHIFT, SHINE all three by Jeri Smith-Ready
{Everyone has buzzed about these books for so long now, from trusted bloggers to authors.  Supposedly it's paranormal for the non-PN-loving crowd [aka...me!].}

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Boy you did a lot of Vlogs this week. I liked the Paya video. Man, you got some interesting books this week. Never have read Lois Lowry. Only read the first book Shade by Jeri-Smith Ready, but her adult stuff is fab, Shade was awesome. Come visit me as well.


  2. Nice selection of books this week. I really liked Touch of Power but then I love most of Snyder's adult books. Here is what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and at Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  3. Ahhh I really need to buy Touch Of Power!

    I loved Poison Study, it's too bad they sold out of it.

    I hope you enjoy Jeri Smith-Ready's trilogy. It's very good.

    Happy reading :-D

  5. A.S. King is an awesome writer! I read her newest book Ask The Passengers and it was really good! I hope you enjoy everything =)

  6. I am sooo fist-pumping at the prospect of all three Shade books. That reigns as one of my top favorite series of ALL TIME. I hope you enjoy!
