Hellllloooo everyone! First off, I want to apologize for being relatively quiet on the blog/twittersphere lately. I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t had time/energy/good internet connection to interact online. I’ve got a handful of half-written reviews that I just need to finish so I can schedule and post them. This is by no means a hiatus, I just won’t be as active online as I used to be for a little while. I also hope everyone in the Toronto area wasn’t too hard hit with the CRAZY FLOODING RAINSTORM on Monday!
This Past Week on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- I swooned/recapped/reviewed The Moonshine Jungle concert with Bruno Mars. AMAZING. <3
- Spoilery recapped my reactions to this week’s 3rd episode of Under the Dome. #HumanEdwardCullen
- Brunch Book Club discussion post of Cynthia Hand’s Unearthly and our spontaneous side-read of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Did you read either of these with Jenn (Lost in a Great Book) and I in June? Time to link up your reviews!
- Recapped an evening with authors Teresa Toten and Amy McCulloch at Random House! Also, be sure you stop in to enter for your chance to win a signed copy of Amy’s The Oathbreaker’s Shadow! (giveaway for Teresa’s The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B is coming up soon)
Princesses Behaving Badly: Real Stories from History Without the Fairy-Tale Endings by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie | For read & review from publisher
Ink by Amanda Sun | Yes, I did just get it from Netgalley last week but of course I had to pick up a beautiful finished copy at Amanda Sun’s book signing last weekend! (Recap to come this week)
Pandemonium (Delirium, #2) by Lauren Oliver | Of course, I had already read it but I finally bought myself a hardcover copy at BMV to complete my set.
The Sandman: Issue #1 by Neil Gaiman | Purchased the first issue on Comixology after having a chat with Jenn & Chandra during brunch book club about how I hadn’t read any of his work yet.
Born Wicked & Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood, and Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl by Emily Pohl-Weary | Gifted & signed at Razorbill Luncheon. Recap to come this coming week! Thank you Razorbill/Penguin!
We all got lovely gift bags at the Razorbill luncheon which included posters of The 5th Wave and the Matched series, Legend & Sylo swag, an adorable Penguin tote and a bound manuscript of The Bone Season – one of the most highly anticipated books this coming Fall season!
Thanks for stopping by! 😎
