Happy 2013 everyone! Hope everyone had a fun & safe New Year’s 🙂
This Past Week on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- Last week, I swooned over the places I visited during 2012 in a photographic trip down memory lane.
- I posted a placeholder for the December readalong with Lost in a Great Book – but the linky is still there to link up your reviews if you read Eve by Anna Carey with us!
- NEW blog feature was started called “Just a lil’ lost…. in the kitchen” (or “Lost in the Kitchen” for short) where I share some reviews/experiences with my New Year’s resolution of cooking more!
- An exciting contest/event where you can vote for your hometown to have a great YA blog tour w/fab authors come visit – and win 10 of their signed books!
- I’ve also just posted my book swap list as part of Ruby Read‘s Saturday Swap! So check it out and see if there’s any books you may want to trade!
- As you can see below in my Review books section, I’ve started planning for April’s Paris Month. If you’re interested in participating with a guest post or the like, please fill out THIS FORM and let me know what you’d like to write about. I will be making selections based on subject matter, schedule, etc.

I scoured Netgalley this week for some upcoming reads to feature… got a bunch of books in early preparation for Paris Month 🙂 There are surprisingly a lot of books with Eiffel Towers on the cover!
Scent of Triumph by Jan Moran | For read & review from publisher
The Chocolate Kiss by Laura Florand | For read & review from publisher
It’s Not Love, It’s Just Paris by Patricia Engel | For read & review from publisher
My non-Parisian review books:
Studio Saint-Ex by Ania Szado | For read & review from publisher. Set in Manhattan & Quebec City? I’m intrigued!
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra | For read & review from publisher. Saw this on a couple year-end lists as being amazing.. definitely looking forward to checking it out!
Billy Fog: Volume 1 by Guillaume Bianco | For read & review from publisher. A ghostly graphic novel? Sounds right up my alley!
Glitches (The Lunar Chronicles, #0.5) by Marissa Meyer | Free download! Forgot to include in last week’s StS post..
Another Year by Ann Patchett | Free essay gifted by Kobo
Some lovely surprise swag from Leigh Fallon! Such pretty bookmarks and buttons! Thank you! 🙂
Picked up some great Kindle deals this past week!
Chasing Jordan and Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally | Bought both of these for $0.99 each on Kindle during a one-day sale. I’m not usually big into sports books but I’ve heard nothing but great things about this series.
Thanks for stopping by! 😎
