So, I went from not doing this meme at all the last half of 2014, to now I started my first Friday of 2015, and now the last Friday of January 2015 doing a meme I used to be pretty regular with.  But I am definitely open to new followers, so this will be a […]

First I’d like to thank vvb32reads for this book which I won on from a giveaway on their blog.   This was a book I just knew I had to read, as well as own, as soon as I saw it. It was almost fitting for where I live because we just got an IKEA store […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’ve chosen the 2nd book of a duology by an author I have enjoyed in the past.  And the first book, Blackbird, was so totally original and unique, that I can’t wait […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Tor Teen for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  This is my first book by this author, even though I do really want to read the Article 5 series, I just haven’t gotten a chance to pick them up yet. But now that I’ve read and really […]

I’m not sure exactly who to thank for the ARC of this that I received in the mail about a month ago.  I don’t know if I requested it through a Shelf Awareness giveaway, or if I have maybe got a contact in Scholastic since I emailed last fall and requested Blue Lily, Lily Blue […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I think I did a lot better this week!  Only one physical book, and it was through YA Book Exchange, so by getting it, I actually got rid of another one! YA Book Exchange […]

So, I’m not quite ready to post a review of the book I’m reading, I’m not even  halfway through it yet.  However, with today being National Readathon Day, and the hours of Noon-4 pm are supposed to be set aside just for reading!!  So, I’m hoping to get a lot of my book read in […]

First thanks to Netgalley and Egmont USA for allowing me to read an egalley of this.  And before I go on, I want to mention some upsetting news that I heard this week from another author, supposedly Egmont USA is going to be shut down.  This makes me very sad as they seem to publish […]

Bookish (And not so Bookish) T..

Posted January 22, 2015 by Lisa Mandina in / 17 Comments

Well, things have led to me not getting my book finished in time to post a review today like I’d hoped, so I searched Thursday book memes online and found this one that Bookishly Boisterous hosts.  It sounded like an easy one for me to do today so that I can keep up with my […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’ve chosen a book by the author of the Monument 14 series that I really enjoyed.  This one sounds like a totally opposite type  of story, well, no apocalypse, but still sounds […]
