So?? Are we living in a post-apocalyptic world right now?? No zombies? 😉
This Past Week on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- Last week, I was swooning over the fact that myself & many other bloggers will be mentioned in the Cinder paperback release!
- I shared my Top 2012 Reads in this week’s Top 10 Tuesday and my Golden Globe nomination picks!
- Posted reviews of two timely reads: the holiday Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares and my friend Katie guest reviewed for the apocalyptic 12.21.12!
- There was also my giveaway that’s come and gone (ran from Mon-Fri) as part of the Season of Give-Away Blog Hop! Check out what was up for grabs, and be sure to stay tuned for more to come!
(Hah. Just noticed a theme with all 6 books I got this week for review.. 4 are ballerina-related and all 6 are girls in skirts)
Ballet School Confidential: #1 Love You, Hate You, #2 You’re So Sweet & #3 I Forgot To Tell You by Charis Marsh | For read & review from publisher. SUPER excited to check this out… I love ballet and it’s set in Vancouver, Canada!
Automatic Woman by Nathan Yocum | For read & review from the publisher via Netgalley. LOVE this cover!
Wild Children by Richard Roberts | For read & review from the publisher via Netgalley.
The Liar Society by Lisa & Laura Roecker | For read & review as part of already-past blog tour from publisher
The Goddess Hunt (Goddess Test, #1.5) by Aimee Carter | Free eBook download gifted by Harlequin Teen!
Starting from the top left, going clockwise: Fabulous sparkly card from Nicole @ Nicole About Town, amazingly appropriate book card from Jenn @ Lost in a Great Book, adorably delicious card & candy cane from Wendy and the new Bruno Mars CD & Seven Wonders by Adam Christopher from Andrea @ Cozy Up with a Good Read (my Secret Santa!)
And then a lovely package from my good friend Jenn @ Writer’s Block with a Starbucks mug for my collection (and a Philippines one from our friend Gary), and a scarf & tee that are SO me! 🙂 Love it!! Thank you Jenn & Gary! (Not pictured: A Miami mug from my friend at work! It was a Starbucks-mug kinda week apparently 😎 )
A super exciting win from Random House Canada – my name was drawn by Adria to win this amazing collection of books! (I think all the cookbooks are trying to tell me that I need to learn how to cook… and cook healthy!!)
Pictured above: David’s Tea Merry Cranberry, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (sound really trippy & interesting!), Tiny Food Party! , Burma (Jenn @ Lost in a Great Book has also raved about this book to me), The Soup Sisters Cookbook (VERY excited for this. I love soup!), and 150 Essential Whole Grain Recipes!
And THIS adorable doll my sister got me… looks like someone’s cloned me, down to the striped shirt, glasses & love of books. 😛 The nametag was a nice touch 😉
Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later by Francine Pascal | Purchased in bargain section at Chapters. Granted, it’s no Babysitter’s Club (which I was a bigger fan of) but I did like Sweet Valley High.. although, it looks like there aren’t too many good reviews for it on Goodreads… :/
I received my first Loose Button Luxe Box! (Click for more info) So many fantastic beauty products in it : Lancôme mini Hypnôse Star mascara, Essie nail polish, Orlane vivifying lotion & cleansing care, Kérastase cristalliste lumière liquide, Prada Infusion d’Iris mini perfume & body lotion and a Loose Button kabuki brush – all in a beautiful bag, within a fancy box… luxe indeed!
Thanks for stopping by! 😎
