This Week In Books Or Look At Me Getting All Chatty

Monday: nothing


Raven Summer by David Almond

For review.


The Pillow Book of Lotus Lowenstein by Libby Schmais

For a blog tour! I wowed this a few months back so I'm very excited!

Thursday: nothing


Microserfs by Douglas Coupland

Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Got these at the library book store. Has anyone read the Lunch Lady books? I've seen them around, they look fun!

Laid: Young People's Experience with Sex in an an Easy-Access Culture edited by Shannon T. Boodram

For review. This book sounds beyond interesting, I'm extremely excited about it!

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean signed coverflat

Holy crap is this cool! I won it in Sarah's contest a week or two back. I've gotten a few cover flats of books I've worked on but none as been as cool as this. It even has the inset page and some information about Sarah and the book on the back. I love the pearly finish of the cover!


Beautiful Americans by Lucy Silag

Earlier this week Khyrinthia told me that she and I (among a few other blogs) had been quoted in the paperback of edition of the book. A few days ago it wasn't in stock locally but now it is and I went out and grabbed it at Borders!

Fall to Pieces by Mary Forsbery Weiland

For review. I don't really know a thing about this book, do you?


  1. I haven't heard of Beautiful Americans before. I just read The Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute. It was really cute.

  2. Thats really cool to get your 'quote' in the book, I think anyway. Didn't you get notified or something? I thought you had to give permission or something... XD What do I know tho?

  3. Miriam- Nope, I just found out from a fellow blogger! I'm just glad I did find out! :)

  4. Congratulations on the blurb! It's so exciting. I haven't read the Lunch Lady books, but I've heard they're good.

  5. I just reviewed Fall to Pieces and I loved it.

  6. Wow! Congrats on being quoted! that is exciting. Enjoy your books!

  7. Congrats on the quote!! And the Sarah MacLean cover looks really cool!

  8. You're published, again : D

  9. Congrats on being quoted!! I hope I am one day too! :)

  10. I think the pillow book looks so good!

  11. Is there anyone not reading Beautiful Creatures right now! That book is going to be a big hit!

  12. Congrats on being quote on Beautiful Americans. That sounds so great. :)

  13. Nice stash! =] It's so awesome that you were quoted.

  14. Congratulations on your quote for Beautiful Americans, I hope you enjoy the rest of your books as well!

  15. Congrats on your feedback being published--go Alea! And I'm super jealous about The Pillow Book of Lotus Lowenstein. It looks so good, can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  16. YAY! Look at you all published and blurbed and stuff! :)

  17. It's funny, because when I heard they were using blogger quotes for this, I immediately went to read my own review for it, and realized that once again, there was nothing quoteable in it. Alas! One day...

  18. Alea--soooo honored to be worthy of a blurb from you!!!! Thank you sooo much!!!
