PS I don't think I am ever going to do another vlog. I have no video editing knowledge and my husband has to do it all for me. Since I wasn't really sure if I was going to go through with this I never asked him till midnight and I needed it up by tomorrow. Not to mention he has to be up by 6am, he was getting grouchy and I wanted to scrap the video by the end. He wants to edit it more and has lots of ideas on how to make it better, but not the time.

Congrats on your first video blog! I love, love, LOVE SAILOR MOON. I just bought the first volume, too, as well as the first volume of SAILOR V! Congrats on winning HADES! I want to read FURY! I really want to read DRAGONSWOOD; congrats on the win! I have to read EVE this month. I wanted to do it last month... It took a while to get into ALL THESE THINGS I'VE DONE, but by the end, I really liked it and can't wait for the next book! Congrats on being chosen as an official event blogger! It sounds like it will be AWESOME!! I really like Jessica Brody. I like MY LIFE UNDECIDED the most. I love going to sigings, too. I'm going to see Lauren Oliver this month, and there will be ten local authors at my local bookstore later this month. I'm also going to see Tamora Pierce, Rae Carson, and John Connolly next month. I'm a junkie, too :)

I loved Sailor Moon as a kid! I had all the comics when they were originally published by Mixx or something. I read those things over and over! :P
Congrats on your first vlog; you did a great job! :)
Hope you enjoy all the books you got this week!

I can't wait to read Possess I've had it for a little while. It looks so creepy and definitely my kind of book! Great haul!

I'll be reading All These Things I've done this week and I loved Parnanormalcy.
Congratulations on all your book wins!

Tiffany Drew said...

Completely jealous of Eve and All These Things I've Done, I want to read them both so bad! You did a great job on your vlog. I am way too shy to even attempt one lol.

Thank you for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

Kathryn (clean teen fiction) said...

I loved Paranormalcy too! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Kris (Words That Fly) said...

I loved Eve so much! I really hope you like it and Fury looks so good... unfortunately I was unable to read it while I had it within my grasp *major fail*. So many books! Happy reading Kristina!

Misty said...

Ooh, lots of goodies. Enjoy!

If you click the link on my post (or go to, you can buy the Disney/Kinkade calendar from Orrrrr your store might have it in stock. That's where mine came from. I saw it at the store and got so excited! I love the B&B picture best! I wish they'd come out with one for that Disney Designer Princess line, too. I'm really annoyed that the notecards are going for so much money on ebay. All three of the local Disney stores--and the website--are sold out and I so want to frame and hang the ten princesses!

I have a feeling we don't live anywhere near each other since I can't usually get to the tours you talk about, so we won't meet at a signing. Maybe if you ever do BEA or come out to NYC :) The Tamora Pierce/Rae Carson/John Connolly signing will be in NYC, so I'm taking a weekend trip to the city (it would have been one day, but we're seeing two musicals, too). The other two events are in PA. I'm so excited!! Tamora Pierce was my favorite author until I discovered Jodi Picoult, I just loved Rae Carson's debut novel, and while I still have to read THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS by John Connolly, I do own it, lol. I don't know if I'm more excited about this or seeing Lauren Oliver!

I'm glad to find another SM fan, too! Do you know that the book coming out in January, CINDER by Marissa Meyer, is written by a SM fanfic writer formally known as Alicia Blade? That's how I first met her, ages and ages ago! She was of the SM fanfic founders!

YAY for your first Vlog!!!! You did amazing hon!!! I really do hope that you vlog more!!!! :D

YAy for getting your copy of Hades!!! I'm sooo happy that you got it!!! Congratulations again on the win :D:D:D!!!! And thank you for the shoutout! :) hehe you and I are alike! I always wait for the last book in the series to come out before reading everything because I can't stand cliffhangers! I will be needing to read Halo and Hades right away though since I have received Hades for review. I'll let you know how I like them soon! :)

*SQUEE!!!* Congrats on your other win from Rachel's blog!!! I really love her blog and her ramblings and everything!! hehe :)

Awesome titles this week as usual!!! Can;t wait to hear your thoughts!!!

Mary @ BookSwarm said...
