Extra! Extra! 46

Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is my weekly Sunday post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's new on the blog.

Today I'm linking to Stacking the Shelves @ Tynga's Reviews and, as always, to my favorite Sunday Post hosted by the lovely Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I pulled a muscle in my back on Friday. All I did was get up from the couch, but something wrenched the wrong way and …. ouch. So I'm a little behind on blog stuff -- including comments -- but I'm feeling much better today and am ready to tackle it all and get caught up.

Current Giveaways:

Enter to win Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead! Open internationally :)

New Books:

I had a great week in new books. I found this early at the bookstore..


Proxy
by Alex London
to be published June 2012whoops 2013!

At first I wasn't sure if this was going to be for me, but I really liked it! Review and giveaway coming soon.


From Edelweiss -- thanks Harper Teen :) I'm VERY excited about these!

Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas (Balzer + Bray August 2013)

Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (Greenwillow June 2013) -- this was my WoW book -- maybe that streak of bad WoW luck has officially ended…

Exciting stuff coming for next week:

Review of Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo AND I am part of the…




Finally, many of you probably know that BEA (Book Expo America) is coming up soon, May 30th-June 1st. I'm SO excited.

I'm part of a group of bloggers who is organizing a Book Blogger Picnic on the evening of Friday, May 31.  Come hang out with us in beautiful Central Park! 



We're meeting on the lawn just south of the Heckscher Playground, which is in the southwest corner of the park (see map below.) It will be easiest to find us if you enter the park at either Central Park South and Seventh Avenue and walk just a few minutes north, or enter at Columbus Circle (which is at 59th Street and Central Park West) and walk northeast.  If you are coming from the Javits Center, you can hop on the closest subway or in a cab and be there pretty quickly.

We'll have big signs and you can tweet us if you're lost.  When it's time to leave, taxis are a short walk away. The Columbus Circle subway station is also very close by and has a bunch of trains to get you wherever you need to go. If you have any questions, you can get in touch with any of us -- email me here. And here is a link to the full map -- the sliver below just shows the area where we're meeting.



I am also just SO excited about summer. That's my favorite reading time. So I have a bunch of great giveaways coming up. Don't want to miss any of it?

    1. I know. That book is just sitting there, tempting me. As soon as I finish what I'm reading, I'm starting that one!

  2. Sorry about your back! That's the pits! I hope it gets better soon--hope you have a heating pad. Those things are the bomb!

    I still haven't read Smoke and Bone. My SNL has a copy of it that I hope to borrow...but I usually borrow them AFTER she's read them and who knows when she'll get to it.

    Totally jealous that you're going to BEA. I hope to go next year...MAYBE!

    Oh and my review of Clockwork Princess is going up tomorrow! I mention you in it.

  3. Sorry to hear about your back-glad to hear you're feeling better but I hope you continue taking it easy so as not to further stress yourself.

    The picnic sounds so nice-I'm sad I'm not going to be at BEA but I am going to be in Hawaii so it kind of works out :)

  6. I want to go to the picnic at the park! :( Maybe someday...

    How awesome that you found Proxy at the bookstore so early! I'm really looking forward to The Burning Sky as well. It's been awhile since I've read high fantasy. I hope your back feels better. :)

  7. Oooh, I didn't realize the new Bethany Griffin book was coming out so soon- so hard to keep track of things. I often feel I read too many series but that's just because almost all of YA books are series these days.

    Can't wait to see you again! I'm leaving for New York a week from today and I'll be there for a whole week, which is awesome. I'll be staying with Pam from Midnyte Reader, but we'll be in the city lots. ;)

  8. I can't wait for the pool to open. I feel like I get a lot more reading done in the summer, which is good because my TBR pile is stacking up.

  9. Sounds like you have some great plans! I wish I could attend BEA but I can't get off work at that time of year. I will be going to my first ALA at the end of June though. Come and see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!
