Week in Review: July 19

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

This week was an annoying combination of way too fast and much too slow. Work was weirdly busy and involved a lot of interviews with teen volunteers (I’m excited to be working with them but it is a big process getting everything rolling!).

Last Friday I went to a book signing with Victoria Schwab, Megan Miranda, Elle Cosimano and Lissa Price at McNally Jackson. Getting to the store was kind of a pain (so many delays!) but I made it and the panel was delightful. Seeing Victoria is always fun as an author I interviewed and sort of know through Twitter. I also finally got to meet Megan Miranda in person after interviewing her on the blog back when her first book came out. I also recently realized I still had my ARC of Fracture so it was fun to get that signed.

On Saturday Nicole and I headed to The Hunger Games Exhibition which was absolutely amazing. I’m planning on writing up a recap but I am still working on how to do it and what to say. But watch for it!

This week I started getting real about BEA books I’m not going to read. I’m planning a sort of giveaway for bloggers but I’m also waiting to be sure I don’t have a swap I signed up for where someone desperately has those books on their wishlist. SO just keep your eyes peeled I guess.

This week all I read was A Curse as Dark as Gold and I am still not done with it. Partly this is my own lack of attention span during this busy, busy week. Partly I think the book is maybe quieter than I’ve been used to lately. I’m liking it but also am at the point where I’d like to be finished now.

How was your week?

  1. Sounds like there were some fun parts of the week, even if the rest was a bit meh! I’ve got a few ARCs I want to give away as well, but I’m waiting to see if my secret sister has them on her wishlist, lol.

  2. YAYYY I cannot wait for The Hunger Games post! Even though I have seen pictures AND you told me stuff already, I will always be excited for more ;) I am likely going on August 1, and I am SO excited.

    The book signing sounds incredible too. It is so nice that you are in such close proximity to that sort of thing. I think I am going to Nori’s in August, but it is still a 3 hour drive, ugh.

    Your BEA thing is reminding me that I have only read TWO BEA books so far, and one was technically for a blog tour! I need to get on that ASAP! Hope you finish that book so you can move on to one you aren’t sick of ;) Have a wonderful week!
