Happy August/News/Bookshelf Updates

Happy August!!
Can you believe we're 8 months into 2010?  Geez, where has the time gone?  I want to thank everyone who decided to follow me/comment last month!  You really do keep me going (however spur of the moment my posts may be)!

While checking my blog stats today, I noticed an interesting referral link...  Turns out the a bit of my review for 'Empire of Night' was posted on the UK Vampirates site!  I'm very surprised I'm the first US review of this title.  Granted, reviews for books in series are harder to come by on blogs and such, but WOW!  I'm super excited to see the quote there as I truly, truly loved 'Empire of Night'.

August 24th is 'Mockingjay' Day! I'll be working at the bookstore on the 24th, so I'm looking forward to seeing all you hungry fans on release day.  Working also means I'll probably keep snatching glances at the 'Mockingjay' cover, trying to convince myself peeking isn't a good idea!!! 

Bookshelf Update:
I took a bit of a break from reading last week, so I'm a bit behind on my stack of books.

Anyway, I'm currently reading 'The Replacement' by Brenna Yovanof.  So far, I love it.  The reference to it being a mix between 'Edward Scissorhands' and 'Catcher in the Rye' worried me a bit, because we all know how much I *love* 'Catcher in the Rye'. (I say dripping with sarcasm!)  My worries were so uncalled for, however, as I instantly got drawn in by the unique, slightly macabre story and characters.  I'm not done yet, but I think this will be a title I remember!
