Okay, so week 3 of my self-imposed book-buying ban didn’t fair AS well as the past 2 weeks, but still not bad! I also got a couple books for my Paris month, but that’ll have to wait until I reveal during April :)

And if you missed it from this past week, I talk about my latest obsession with Draw Something, a recap of Leah Bobet’s launch party for Above and the crazy moment I started a heated debate on the bus between strangers because I offered up my seat. I’ve also reblogged some of my “crazy” stories over to a new blog called “Catnip for Crazies” (as affectionately dubbed by my former roommate) LOL



Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1) by Kelley Armstrong <– Bought 1) because it’s set in Toronto apparently, and 2) so I could pass to Wendy (A Cupcake and a Latte) for her to get signed for me since I won’t be here when Kelley is doing her book signing!

The Earthquake Machine by Mary Pauline Lowry <– Received for read & review from the author.

Exposed: A Novel by Ashley Weis <– Free for Kindle on Wednesday!

Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein <– eARC for read & review from publisher

The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind by Meg Medina <– ARC gifted to me from Wendy!

Gone (Gone, #1) by Michael Grant <– Bought at BMV for $1.99!! Ridiculous! Wendy was paying for another amazing find and while I was waiting outside for her, spotted this in pristine condition!

The Calling (Darkness Rising, #2) by Kelley Armstrong <– Received for read & review from the publisher

And, although I didn’t get Above this week, I did go to Leah Bobet’s launch party and got my book signed!

AND Sara (Geek Girl’s Book Blog) stopped by her local beauty store and picked me up the two Hunger Games nailpolishes I wanted (and couldn’t seem to find anywhere!)

Hunger Games collection in "Dress Me Up" and "Agro"

What did you guys get this week? Leave your link and I’ll be sure to check it out!


  1. GONE is SO GOOD. I’ll come by later with my IMM–but it’s just that good I had to leave another comment :)

  2. I wish the Kelly Armstrong signing wasn’t during the day! Oh well – next time right? Fun week – Pretty Amy sounds really fun and I don’t know what it is but I’m loving the cover! Good luck getting everything else together for Paris month! :)

  3. I am really looking forward to reading Above, ‘she has bee wings’, I am totally captured, can’t wait!
    Pretty Amy sounds like a sweet quick read! I got it too and look forward to trying to read it this week!
    Enjoy your newbies!

    Here’s mine:

  4. Ooh Paris month? That sounds like fun! And your trip is making me soo jealous! I’ve always wanted to go too. That is such a great find. $1.99!!! The Hunger Games nail polish has such nice colours. I’m going to have to get me some too

  5. I’m super curious about Gone and The Calling! They both looks really good. 😀 And that’s cool you get to have Above signed! Hope you enjoy all your new reads. 😀

    My IMM!

  6. Ahhhh! I want to read The Calling! Hope you love it.
    I can’t wait for your Paris event! Looking forward to seeing what books you are going to review.
    It sounds like you had a great time at the Above launch party! It’s pretty awesome how many events Toronto actually gets.

  7. What an awesome mailbox!! Love THG nail polishes. I got Pretty Amy too and I am looking forward to reading it. Loved your event recap for the Above Launch Party.

  8. Great IMM! I’ve read The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind, but I was a little disappointed, to be honest. Hope you like it better than me! I really want to read Pretty Amy – looks so good! Happy reading :)

  9. Kelley Armstrong is an author-Goddess, and you shall love all of her books! *dumdumdum* No, seriously, she’s great and her books are really complex. I hope you’ll love them as much as I did!! :)

  10. Signed books are awesome! I can’t wait for the Calling, still need to read The Gathering but I do own it and it is signed
    Happy reading

  11. Hi there, you have some nice titles here, but the one that I am particularly envious of is the one by Meg Medina: The Girl who could Silence the Wind. It sounds like magical realism at its finest, and the book cover is glorious! Have fun with your new reads!

    Here’s mine over at GatheringBooks:

  12. Eek, Michele… you found some Hunger Games nail polish… I have been looking everywhere! Must share your secrets! Love all the awesome reads this week too!

    Here is my IMM

    Happy Reading!

  15. Woo hoo nail polish!!! I have a slight obsession with nails atm. I was actually talked into making a nail tumblr. hehe Anyway, I need to read more Kelly! Enjoy all your goodies! ;-D

    My IMM:

  16. I love all the Women of the Otherworld books. The later ones aren’t as good, but Bitten and Stolen are absolutely amazing. I think they’re what first got me in to urban fantasy!
