On My Shelf (31)

On My Shelf highlights books I’ve acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I’m writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it’s pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. 😉
Was going to buy this the other day, but Barnes & Noble didn’t have it. 🙁 Luckily, I managed to make it to a Books-A-Million today, and they had a much better YA section (seriously, I love BAM). I can’t wait to read it! Evil imaginary friends! Also, I rather like the cover. It looks and feels nice. 🙂
I’ve actually done quite a bit of reading lately. This week I started Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs, which I’ve almost finished. I really like it, but there are also a lot of things about it that I don’t like. But despite all that, I’m already excited for Sweet Shadows.
I started The Field Guide (for the third time) for a read-a-thon a while ago, and I’m still reading it. I guess I just wasn’t in the mood for it, or reading something three times in a few months was just a little too much, because I haven’t really felt like picking it up again. I finished it in one day the first two times I read it. As soon as I finish it, I’m going to re-read The Seeing Stone, then move on to the rest of the series.

I’m still reading Cryer’s Cross, which is more than a little disappointing. I just haven’t felt like reading it in a long time. When I finally finish it, it’s probably going into my giveaway/trade pile.

In case you missed my post about it, I’m participating in NaNoWriMo for the fourth time (fifth if you count Camp NaNo this summer, which I don’t because I don’t even think I wrote a full page). I’m writing an unnamed fantasy story, and I currently have 6,569 words, which puts me behind today’s goal, but I haven’t had a chance to write today, so I guess you could still say I’m on track.
Are you a book blogger doing NaNo? I’d love to add you as a buddy!
That’s all for this week. Happy reading! And good luck to all my fellow wrimos!
