This post is really more than just the title says... It's kind of a jumbled mix of random things I wanted to share, so please, bear with me.
(Or, you know, be entertained by this GIF instead... up to you)
The Book Wanting!
So, the book that I'm waiting on this week?
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Format: Hardcover, 324 pages
Release Date: May 22, 2012
Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish.GIMME GIMME GIMME!!! *grabby hands* I'm so intrigued by water creatures and luckily, it seems like I'm not the only one. There are a bunch of books from under the sea coming out this year and I can't waaaait.
What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.
The Pretty New Cover!
Is it not gorgeous? I've loved all of the covers for this series -- they're simple yet still so elegant-looking -- and I really like this one too. The whole transition from in the bubble to smashing the bubble to out of the bubble... wooooo, Cassia! Of course, I have yet to read Crossed, despite owning it, but that's a tale for another time.
The Shameless Endorsing!
My friend May (as she is known on the web) has started a blog! Woohoo! It's a writing blog, not a book blog, but since they seem to go hand-in-hand sometimes, I thought I'd share :) I would love for you to check it out if you have the chance.
May is... amazing. She's kind of crazy and talks about writing 97% of the day and when she gets excited about something, she's kind of an unstoppable force but I love her. She is without a doubt the most sincerely sweet person you will ever meet and she's just awesome in general.
Oh, and I like her writing. So obviously I'll be stalking her blog.... Hope to see you there!
(Ah, right, the actual blog. You can find it HERE: Strung By Words. It's all shiny and brand-new.)
(Obviously this was a totally non-biased viewpoint though....)
The Obligatory Explanation!
I feel like I've been absent lately. Not just from posting but from commenting and just interacting in general. I'm sorry. I really do miss it. Talking to you guys is, without a doubt, my favourite part of blogging.
Recently, I've been sick and in a very serious relationship with my blanket and multiple boxes of tissues. I'm hopeful that we're on the verge of a break-up but... I'm pretty irresistable.
I won't even get started on my school work because I would really rather not think about the 2 tests, 2 presentations and 1 project I have due for Monday. Spring Break is coming up (so soon!) though so I'll be able to catch up on talking to all of you lovely people then :)
And so ends the LONGEST BLOG POST EVER. Wow.
