For the week of August 19–25, 2012

Three books for review this week and they were all surprises. Ahhh my to-review pile is growing and to think I made a dent in it already. Not that I’m complaining mind you, I love it. I just need to read faster and get this reviews all written up. I’m also going to be heading up to FanExpo Canada on Sunday. It’ll be my first time and I don’t know what to expect! Have a great weekend book nerds 😀

    I’m so excited to read Wake! I recently saw a copy of it in the bookstore and I love how shiny it is. I also love how the inside cover is actually a poster! Thanks so much for sharing your haul! 🙂

    Great book haul, Wake looks good.
    I haven’t been to Fan Expo, but I have been to Anime North. I might go to Fan Expo in the next few years, but I doubt it, because I heard it’s too crowded and that you shouldn’t go outside or you will have to wait hours in line again.

    Anyways, enjoy your books.

    Here’s my weekly book haul Saturday on the Shelves

      Aww thanks! I love photographing them. It just shows they’re actual books instead of the flat two dimensional book covers. 😀

    Dark Light does look like an adult book, not a YA. Great haul of books. Love the swag that Ada Adams gave you. Come visit me too…
