AT LAST. I've been loading and reloading this video forever because it kept hanging. *shakes fist at internet* 9th time's the charm! (But I still couldn't catch what you said about wearing purple/black over the loud rain over here. o__o

Lovely haul! I'm especially jelly of your copy of Devil's Metal. It's going out of print soon. >.<

I can't pronounce those last names too. Kara should do a soundclip of her saying it. :P

NOOO, there is no Percy!!! I think it's because you threw him off the schedule, Christina... :))) Glad you had such fantastic time at signing and I totally understand about difficult names. I pronounce Kara's surname in my mind probably in a totally different way it should be done and would never say it right ;)

LOL I am NOT a Ravens fan! bahaha

Oooh I can't wait to see what you think of Breaking Point my fellow Article 5 fan!

The Bonaventure cover is really pretty. Side note, I totally went to St. Bonaventure Elementary school! Religion!

I am really excited for Perishable too, I think it sounds like something I would love and people complaining about the pace really makes me excited *shrugs*

Mmmm I love me some tea! This sounds like such a fun signing, I would love to go to an event that cool!

Good idea not getting everything personalized, makes a very excited giveaway if you like it!

I mean don't like it DOH!

Yup! I gave it a 3.5 and I'm on the lower end of the spectrum, just because horror isn't really my genre.

Blogger Christina said...

Yup! I was all over The Near Witch, esp because paperbacks are cheaper!

Awesome! I'm reading Breaking Point now and I like it so far. :)

Oh wow, that sucks. I have slow internet too, though, so I get it.

You should get one before it does!

Last names are a trap. X_X

Blogger Christina said...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I pronounce her name a different way every time in my head.

Percy just wasn't around. I don't know what he was doing.

Blogger Christina said...

I'm fifty or so pages in and I like it so far. I really don't get why so many people hate Ember. She seems fine to me.

Bahahaha, wow. I would not have guessed that.

Right? That's weird right?

First step: learning to fly.

The giveaway is excited!!!!

Oh crap, I thought you hadn't read Tomorrow yet. Oh well, 'tis pretty ;)

In the Shadow of Blackbirds was fantastic, super super creepy and I thought Cat Winters did a great job of mashing up a whole lot of genres.

Enjoy !

I have, but I will read it again, which I totally want to do anyway!

Ooooh, I'm so excited by all of what you just said!!!!

Yay! We are finally on a matching TLC tour. I also am on the tour for The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow, but I did not get two copies. It is a lovely cover though and I can't wait to read that one!

Let me help you with the pronunciation of my name LOL. It is Kare-uh (not Kah-ruh) Mal-in-zak. LOLOLOL! I love you anyway and you are so welcome! And do not feel bad. My name has been butchered my entire life. :D

Great haul this week and I'm glad you had so much fun at the signing!

Woo! Hopefully it's awesome, unlike An Uncommon Education....

I have been saying your first name wrong since I met you, and I know I've mentioned you in vlogs you've seen before. Why didn't you say something?!?!?! It's way more awkward now. lol. Oh well. All of the ones after the first time are your fault. Actually, I totally considered that pronunciation for your last name. So I did better with that one. I tend to default to rounder sounds. *shrug*
