What books are you hoping to collect next month?

I’m not sure. I’ve canceled all my pre-orders and I’m going to be moving them to different websites, so I’ll just say – my book box books!


How are your challenges going?

The Unread Shelf Challenge: I’ve read 2 this month! Rather randomly just picked them up. Well, technically I’d say it’s 4 – two I DNFd.
Book Box Challenge: None,
Netgalley Challenge: None
Reviews: None….uh I think I have 6 pending now? and 2 I’m not going to do because meh. I need to sort this out badly.

The Unread Shelf Challenge:

Any rants or raves?
Anything to boast or even just chat about?

I’ve been having trouble getting undamaged books from Amazon recently and I finally had enough. They make enough money to take care of the stuff they’re actually sending to people! So I’ve dropped all my pre-orders and I’m going to  be getting my books from elsewhere from now on. Added bonus is that I got STORM CROW early – as amazon had it down for a later release date!
Also it’s NEWTs season! And I’ve also remembered I never made that OWLs page, so I had better do that, so I can add the NEWTS to it too…..
AND there are so many special editions of books now – it’s just too exciting!
