Week In Review
February 3 – 9
My Olympic fever is in full swing! I love getting up early to watch the events, and coming home from work and seeing the highlights and replays. It was awesome to see the Dufour-Lapointe sisters win the gold and silver medals in the freestyle skiing, and to see Mark McMorris win the bronze in the slopestyle snowboard. And the women’s hockey team had a great game too! And that’s only day one!
I’m really looking forward to watching more figure skating, the men’s freestyle skiing, and more hockey!
It was an awesome book week because a bunch of my pre-orders showed up! I’m especially excited for The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman and Teen Spirit by Francesca Lia Block. I also bought Legend by Marie Lu; Infinite by Jodi Meadows; and Cress by Marissa Meyer.
I won a copy of A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard on Twitter from Pub(lishing) Crawl, which arrived in the mail too.
I posted my reviews of Ilsa J. Bick’s White Space, and Ellen Hopkins’ Impulse. I also shared my Top Ten Tuesday post on the top ten books that made me cry, and my Waiting on Wednesday post for Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle.
Also, coming up on February 20 is my interview with author Mindee Arnett! Be sure to check that out!
Happy Sunday and GO TEAM CANADA!
