  1. There is no such thing as an 'unhealthy' relationship with books. NO SUCH THING.

  5. I seriously LOVE watching your IMMs every week--you crack me up! And it makes me earnestly wish that there was a magical land where all of us book bloggers could hang out all the time (besides the internet, I guess haha)!

  6. Hi! The summer I learned to fly is a book i've read. It's good, I think it should probably be middle grade though.

  14. Laura ~ Shadows on the Moon isn't out in the US until next year, but it is out now in the UK, which is where I got my copy from.
    Oryx and Crake is a dystopia that takes many elements about our culture to their logical extremes. It's really chilling and powerful and gritty and darkly humorous, and very, very well done. As is just about everything Atwood does.

  15. I'm glad you got Between Shades of Gray! It's insanely good. Just have tissues ready.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Okay, I have not read Oryx and Crake. Oops. :P I will check it out though and maybe eventually I will read it.

  17. I absolutely loved Between Shades of Gray. Can't wait to read your thoughts on it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Between Shades of Gray was a really good but really SAD read. I love historical fiction and this was right up my alley...it wasn't as dark as I thought it would be given the topic. Enjoy all of your goodies.

  19. So many awesome/awesome sounding books here!! But also- AHAAHAFLJ FO*Y(R*@ TLI HETLK!!!!!!!!!!

    You have Shadows!! LUCKY!!! (Hope that desperate man smell is gone! :P )

    ReplyDelete
  20. I meant to mention the smell! It's really only one side of the book that smells (leaf-side). It's ridiculous. I really want to know what lonely packer had his hands on it...

  21. Unhealthy, whaaaaaaaaat? People who DON'T love books are the unhealthy ones. Their poor minds...!!

    You finally caved and got HEART'S BLOOD! All right! I can not WAIT for you to read it and want to be one of the first to know your thoughts!

    I wanted to start SHADOWS on my birthday, but I was on the third book in a trilogy and wanted to finish first, so alas... :( Have you started it yet? When will you be reading it?

    Haha, and loooove your ORYX AND CRAKE reaction!

    *heartheartheart*

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nope, haven't started it yet, though I hope to in the soonish future. August is looking a little dicey, so we'll see I guess.

    I will absolutely let you know BEFORE ANYONE ELSE what I think of Hearts Blood. ;P

    Happy belated birthday!! Did you get my card yet?

    =D
