Remainders (20)

Ex Libris Remainders

Welcome!  I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer!  August is almost here, which means school will be starting soon for some people.  I am excited because August means that the City of Bones movie is going to be in theaters THIS MONTH!  I am so excited to see one of my favorite series come to life on the big screen!

On Friday, I went to a book signing at the fabulous Murder By The Book for a YA signing that included Mary Lindsey, Joy Preble, PJ Hoover and Martha Wells.  Texas is a great place for authors and Houston is a fantastic book town!

I was particularly interested in hearing more about Mary Lindsey’s new book, Ashes on the Waves. It is a fabulous book and one of my favorites this year!  I learned from Mary that each Poe quote at the beginning of the chapters, when extracted and put in order, outline the story!  The publisher also brought in two Poe experts to consult on the story and give input on the way Poe’s work was used in the retelling of this haunting poem.  If you haven’t read this book, I strongly encourage you to give it a try.  It has great value as a story unto itself, but I also see it as a great resource for teachers.   You can read my review here.

I got a few books signed at the event….

  1. I love going to book signings. I haven’t been to one since February. They are always so fun though! I think I am going to a Holly Black signing in September though. Super excited for that!! You got a lot of great books!

  2. Great books this week! I’ve always wanted to go to an author book event. There’s never any near my area, unfortunately. I feel like you Texans get all the awesome events! I was part of the tour for SOLSTICE but didn’t have the time to actually review the book. I can’t wait to see what you think of it. It sounded awesome.

    I haven’t heard of ASHES ON THE WAVES before but you have me convinced I need to go read it! It sounds like a really unique and interesting premise.

    Ah, so jealous you got PANIC. I haven’t read anything by Lauren Oliver but the buzz on this book is crazy. So of course I want to read it!
