Sunday Sendup 22 (Post BEA)

So here's my week...

Finished:
The Assassin and the Desert by Sarah J Maas - This made me cry, no joke at all.  I FELT SO BAD FOR HER.

The Assassin and the Underworld by Sarah J Maas - You know it feels wrong to classify these are young adult fantasy, I think a lot of folks will overlook it because of this.  Maas' writing and tone is mature and I think compelling enough for anybody of any age (over 14). 

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas - OH MY GOD.  I want book 2 now.  Sarah J Maas you have hereby catapulted yourself to the top 10 list of my favorite Fantasy Authors.  Way to go.

Started Reading:
The Duke is Mine by Eloisa James - I didn't finish the ARC of this before it fell off my Kindle

Review:
All the BEA books ever.  Tegs and my boxes we shipped to ourselves on thursday arrived Saturday (hey it pays to be only a state away) and I now have 60 books to consider when to read.  To be fair 7 I already have/have read, 4 are books for others, 2 are graphic novels, 5 are part of ongoing series I need to get other books for first and 6 are previously released in 2011 so I'm not feeling a huge rush on.

Won or Bought:

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh - I really wanted my own copy and so I bought the HC of this
A Rogue By Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean - I missed her signing, but I still wanted a finished copy
Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep - Yes. and Yes.
Earl and Fairy volume 2 - this series is cute and fluffy...with a bit of a nasty turn coming its way soon if it follows the anime


Note to the Unwary - I'm working hard to get my posts up, but I'm also working hard on my classwork so things may be a little dicey for a couple of weeks while I play juggle.

Lesson Learned This Week - I need a personal masseuse.  Also House of Cupcakes is delicious.
