In My Mailbox, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, allows us to share our
current reads, and books we've received/checked out/purchased over the course of the week.
Friday was an incredibly busy day. After class and before work I managed to sneak in a trip to Comic Con to see Tahereh Mafi and Veronica Rossi speak, as well as attend their signing. Might I say that the two of them were extremely sweet and smart, and waiting in line for an hour to get in was well worth the trip there. All of my books this week are from NYCC, including some not pictured that my bf got for me yesterday at Julie Kagawa's signing. (So. Excited.) Next year I am definitely going all three days!
Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi
I couldn't not start this one and I find myself speechless on every page. Her words are absolutely stunning and the turn of phrase in this book is exquisite. It gives me hope and confidence, because I'm more of a descriptive writer, and, boy, this is proof that it can be done very, very well.
Immortal City, Scott Speer
Under the Never Sky, Veronica Rossi
I hadn't heard of Immortal City, but I asked the very nice lady at Penguin (their booth was fabulous!) what it was about and she had me hooked, so I'm going to try it. Under the Never Sky - very excited to start this one.
Across the Universe, Beth Revis
Ship Breaker, Paolo Baciagalupi
The paperback edition of Across the Universe is gorgeous. It really is.
Fire, Kristin Cashore
I haven't read Graceling yet, although I was assured that I didn't need to before I start this one, although I probably will just to have everything in order. I'm happy to have one of her books on my shelf after so long on my TBR!
