My Last post (VACATION)

Hey guys, I just felt like I should leave a final message explaining that I'm going to be away on vacation until August the 24th, so I won't be posting unless I get my hand on a computer... even then. So, if you're waiting on reviews or updates, it'll have to be after I come back. Anyway, since this is my last post, I'm just going to let you guys know what new books I've got, and all the books I'm going to take with me. Plus, I'll have a list of all the books I'm going to review when I come back. Enjoy!

In My Mailbox!
This week, I only got two books, but both seem really enjoyable!

Eden's Root by Rachel E. Fisher was sent to me by the author for review purposes, and it's signed! Sorry I can't get my own pictures, camera's already locked. Anyway, here's a 'pre-review' blurb: The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional. Interesting, eh? By the way, I don't say 'eh' a lot (it's apparently a Canadian stereotype that we say 'eh' a lot). Moving on!

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith is, I'm pretty sure, a movie that's been adapted into a book, or the other way around. Any who, I saw it at the store and the cover reminded me to much about Darran Shan Cirque Du Freak, so I decided it couldn't hurt to buy it. Enjoy the blurb: Abraham Lincoln was just a boy when he learned that his mother's untimely death was actually the work of a vampire. From then on, he vowed to devote his intelligence, strength--and skill with an ax--to the elimination of the soulless creatures. It was a path of vengeance that would lead him all the way to the White House.
No one ever knew about Lincoln's valiant struggle against the undead... until author Seth Grahame-Smith laid eyes on Abe's secret journal--the first living person to do so in over 140 years. Putting a supernatural spin on revisionist history, Seth has reconstructed Lincoln's true life story--while revealing the role vampires played in the birth, growth and near-death of our nation.

That's all for this week.

Moving on to the books I will read over the summer. Here's the list:

-The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen  (really excited to read this) (check
-Mockingbird by


  1. Well, I thought I posted my comment earlier, but it didn't show up, so obviously it didn't.

    I didn't know Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a book-made-into-movie. I'm definitely going to check the book out!

    I also followed your blog!

  2. Yeah, the book has been made into a movie. I haven't read it yet, but I own it. If you like that book, the same author also wrote Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. I love that book! It's one of my faves, and it'd be cool if they made that into a movie. It's one of those "mashup" books.

    I wanted to let you know that I've nominated your blog for an award. Information about the award will be posted this Friday on my blog. I love reading your blog and have become a follower recently. :D

  3. Hi! I'm from Wattpad, saw your cover-making page!
    I followed your blog and Yeah!
    and, I'm reading Divergent by Veronica Roth at the moment! It's quite good so far! :)
