Your cat was just NOT cooperating this week. LOL.

I have no idea what I am going to do with my hair for BEA, but I do think I am going to get it cut before I co so I actually can do something with it.

Thanks for the book, I think. You know I don't actually watch Survivor anymore. I used to be a huge fan though and I just never changed my email because it was too difficult. We are in it for life. That said, I will read and review the shit out of that book. :D

No, he really wasn't. Little jerkface. Oh well, he's a cat. What can you do?

Bleh. I need to get mine trimmed.

Whatever. You love it forever. Also, the Survivor book is TINY, so you can do it in like five minutes.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on I Hunt Killers! I know a couple of bloggers really enjoyed the sequel, but I haven't seen many reviews on the first book. Hope you enjoy it. :) I haven't heard of the rest, but After Iris has such a cute cover.

And have I mentioned how similar your cat and my cat look? They're practically identical!

I think Moxie and the Art looks so cute. I hope it's a good one. I keep meaning to pick up I Hunt Killers, but just haven't yet.
Thanks for stopping by my STS!

I recommend The Lost Wife by Alison Richman to anyone who likes Sarah's Key. It was a good story.

Some of these books looked really good so I'm going over to Goodreads now to add them.

Your kitty is cute whether he cooperates or not.

The Perfume Collector sounds interesting. Have you read Perfume? That one disturbed the hell out of me but at the same time, fascinated me.

OMg I feel like I haven't watched one of your vlogs forever! I often don't have a lot of time for videos in the weekends so I just read the list haha. But I love how in every one I've watched your kitty was in it! Win for kittehs! Omh she's all in your shiz! I love her (Percy=him? I'm used to saying her bc of my own lol). Omg she's eating paper!

Eep you got I Hunt Killers!! I think you will like it it's on the mature end of YA and the morbid humor is awesome!! I know how you like that! haha!

Sorry I didn't hear much of what you were saying in this vlog, I was too busy watching your cat doing weird shit! >.<

Babyliss! I wish I had your hair! It's so curly and fabulous I bet you can do all sorts of funky stuff! Mine falls all sorts of flat! Boo!

Thanks, he's adorbs. I hope Sight Reading is as good as Russian Winter!

Blogger Christina said...

Oh, really? I feel like all of my blogger friends have reviewed it and said how it's the best ever. Most seem slightly disappointed in game, but general consensus is that it's good.

Haha, really? Orange tabbies are the best! Does yours also run slightly chubby?

Hahaha, poor Percy! He was just not feeling it today! :)) Yay for all your books and especially Kierstin Geer - she is an author I really want to get to but keep putting on hold. Enjoy all!

I Hunt Killers intrigues me. I'll be looking forward to your review, Christina! Also? KITTY! *snuggles*

I Hunt Killers seems to have quite a fan following. I hope you enjoy it, and I am looking forward to your review!

Percy was being quite rambunctious, but he's still totally adorable.
I Hunt Killers was fantastic, I really hope you enjoy it. I have yet to read Game because... I don't know why. It's huge and I'm worried it won't live up to the first one.
The Perfume Collector sounds super good, I'm going to have pick that one up. And I'm adding Russian Winter to my TBR. Never heard of it before but I like the sound of it.

Emerald Green.
Oh my god.
I am so excited about that book!!!
You're going to love the series!
I hope you have good things to say about Emerald Green (I cannot spoil anything but you'll know why after you read the other two books) :)

OMG I swear I commented on this already!! Apparently not. Ohh I Hunt Killers!! I got that a few weeks ago and so want to make time for it!! So the sound wasn't working on your video. Don't know if it was just my stupid speakers or computer. Most likely. Great haul babe! Enjoy your books!!

May 6, 2013 at 9:41 AM  
Blogger Christina said...

The sounds is working for me, so it might be a glitch on your end. :/

Oooh, awesome. I would love to do a readalong, but I won't have free reading time until...maybe ever? lol.

I think it looks cute too, so I hope the insides match!

Me too! I'll feel like a jerk for requesting book three if I don't!

Blogger Christina said...

Good to know! Thanks for the recc. From what I've heard, I will like Sarah's Key.

Awesome! Glad you found some new books to try!

Blogger Christina said...

I think so too, and the reviews so far have been phenomenal. I should be starting that on Tuesday or Wednesday, so we'll see! And, no, I haven't read Perfume.

Blogger Christina said...

I know how it goes. I like vlogs, but don't watch them all that often, because it takes time and being in a place where you can. Anyway, Percy is a him. Haha. He loves to chew on/attack paper, but I don't think he eats too much of it.

Seriously, Percy was extra distracting this time.

Also, I wish I had straight hair. Frizz is so freaking annoying. I'm happier with my curly hair now than I used to be though.

Na, he's not a poor Percy. He's just a brat. Haha.

Yup. I'm using the ARC as an excuse to catch up on something I've been meaning to read for ages.

I love my kitty!

It does! I hope I love it as much as most of my friends have!

He's often rambunctious. Pretty much any time he's not napping.

Most people haven't liked Game quite as much, but some have. Good luck!

Ah, yay! I loved Russian Winter. It had a slow pace from what I recall, but it was just so beautiful!

May 6, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Ha, thanks for not spoiling the series for me! I'm looking forward to catching up!

If my curls looked like your curls I wouldn't hate them so much. Oooh...I Hunt Killers was awesome. Listened to it on audio at the recommendation of a favorite book blogger and the narrator was so fantastic. Can't wait for the next one, Game, to come out. Enjoy your books!
