Remainders (16)

It’s been busy for the last few weeks and I have some awesome books to share!

Purchased:
The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

I ordered this book from the fabulous Blue Willow Bookshop in Houston and it came with a bunch of awesome stickers and a signed book plate!!

How To Say Goodbye in Robot (audio) 

This book is narrated by Kate Rudd, who was the voice behind the audiobook of The Fault In Our Stars.  She also narrated Tithe and Ironside by Holly Black.  If you can be a fangirl over an audiobook narrator, then I am one for Kate Rudd.  That woman could read me the tax code and I’d be in heaven.

News!
NetGalley asked me to write a few blog posts about my experience with blogging.  The focus was on getting started and what you might need to know to build a successful book blog.  Although I am no expert, I tried to go over things I’ve learned.  You can find my latest post here.

The cover for Siege and Storm was released!!  It’s gorgeous, of course, but my favorite part fo the article was something that Leigh Bardugo said about YA:

Also, the (increasingly numerous) adult readers of YA? We’re doing okay. We aren’t languishing in a prolonged adolescence or in need of having our reading choices curated lest we become the victims of sparkly stalkers. So, in the glorious future, whether we’re calling a book young adult or new adult or just science fiction or fantasy, I hope we’ll see less panic, less bashing of readerships, and more open engagement with the work. Also, unitards.
I agree!! (Except for the unitard part.)  You can read the entire article here.

My YA for Adults book club read The Fault In Our Stars this month.  Coincidentally, The Atlantic held a twitter chat with John Green.  You can read the transcript here.

Our book club pick for March is Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.  If you are so inclined, give us a like on Facebook!

Have a great week and don’t forget to leave me a link so I can return your visit!

  1. False Sight!! EE! I loved False Memory! I cannot wait to hear what you think of this sequel!
    And Nantucket Blue sounds really good 🙂

  2. Ha it seems that Dirty Little Secret was the book to get this week! Love the Maureen Johnson pack you got, I really need to read the first book in that series. Also, I can’t wait to read 10 Tiny Breaths though I am sad that they changed the cover, I liked the original better. Fabulous haul, Kate!

  3. So many prettiful books, Kate! I’m so curious to read Ten Tiny Breaths, as there are quite a number of 5 star reviews for it. And the audio of How to Say Goodbye? I’ll have to check it out! Awesome books this week, and congrats on being chosen to write your experience of blogging for Netgalley! 🙂

  4. Oooh, False Sight! It looks so good! I’ve had the first book for awhile but haven’t read it yet. I will try to soon though because he’s coming here in May! A lot of other awesome goodies! I’m curious about Severed Heads, Broken Hearts. Enjoy! 🙂
