Sunday Salon

Sunday, June 6, 2010


With the fun filled week I had recently in NYC, I feel today's Sunday Salon is so boring, lol.
I had extremely ambitious plans to read a lot prior to BEA so when I met certain authors I could already have read their books. That didn't happen. Nor did I read at all my week there! So I feel like I've read a lot less lately than usual. I'm also back to my ridiculously packed schedule and have been having trouble focusing on reading too much. I've found that I get much more easily frustrated with books if I don't love them because I just don't have that time to waste!!

I did get to finish one of the books I brought back from BEA, Room by Emma Donoghue. It was so different than anything else I've read in a long time. I think it will be really popular. But that's all I'm going to say about that for now... you'll have to read the entire review sometime closer to the release date in September. ;) I also finished Caught by Harlan Coben last night. Today I'm working on a book for blog tour I have coming up.

I have one more BEA related post spotlighting hot book club books that will be up later this week. Speaking of which my 50 pound box of books from BEA has not yet arrived!! Where is it??? Hope it finds its way here soon!

I hope your box gets there soon!!! I put up my vlog of all my books today, as well as a giveaway of those that ended up in my hands that I actually didn't want.

Oh, my heart is racing for you not-yet-arrived box! I hope it gets to you soon.

I hope your box comes soon! I can't wait to see your review of Room as well. That's one I really, really want to read!

I was freaking out about my boxes too! I got the two smaller ones right away and it took 3 more days to get the big one!

I'm excited to read my BEA books, especially Room, but when I realized how far out the publication dates were for most of them, I started to think I should wait a bit. Except September really isn't that far away, is it?

Jill -- it really isn't! I actually just finished Room (and wrote the review, yay!) and thought I was waaaaay ahead of schedule, but Sept. will be here before we know it!

I am hearing a lot of buzz about Room -- glad you enjoyed it!
