On My New Arrivals Shelf (3)

Okay, it's been another lovely week for books. To start off, I need to share some photos of the signing I went to on Sunday. I meant to write a whole post about it, but I was lazy, so it's going in here.

From the Signing at The Little Shop of Stories:
Jackson Pearce, Elizabeth Eulberg and Jen Calonita did a panel discussion chat thingamabob at The Little Shop of Stories, a completely adorable little independent book shop in Decatur. Of course, I could not pass this up, even though I have yet to read any of their book, although this shall most assuredly change!

I recently posted about my experiences at a Jackson Pearce signing, so I'll spare you further reiteration of how completely awesome she is. Instead, what I want to talk about is the fact that I totally have a bit of a girl-crush on Elizabeth Eulberg. She is funny and outgoing and I just adored listening to her, probably about as much as she loves talking. :-p I owned one of her books (Prom & Prejudice) already, but HAD to buy the other two. Unfortunately, buying Belles was not within my budget on top of those. I wish they'd had some of Calonita's prior books in paperback. Oh well.

Since the last Jackson Pearce signing, I ordered her one book I did not have, her first As You Wish, so I got that signed along with the three Eulberg books. Also, this is a perfect example of why I love Eulberg though I haven't read her books yet: she signs Prom & Prejudice "It is a truth universally acknowledged that Christina is awesome!" and The Lonely Hearts Club "With love from me to you." Nerdy cuteness!!!

WOW! What a haul! You have sooo many lovelies, and I do hope you enjoy all of them. Elizabeth was at Teen Book Con last month and I adored her. So sweet and outgoing, just as you said! I really need to read Take a Bow, come to think of it ;-)

I just bought Inhale on my NOOK and can't wait to dive in all the sexytimes! Haha.

Thanks for sharing your book haul this week. Happy reading!

Chocolate! Nananana, I want! :'D And OMG, you got a physical ARC from Harper, even though you're living in Switzerland? How epic (and, as my jealous pouty part is saying right now, unfair) is that? XD

No! I don't live in Switzerland (I wish I did, though, because it's one of the most beautiful countries ever.); I live in Georgia in the good ol' USA. One of my books was shipped to me from Switzerland. ;)

You got Blackout!? AHHHHH! That's probably my most anticipated book of the year. The last one left on the greatest cliffhanger.... Just another month or so until I can read it too. I hope it's as awesome as the other two in the series!
