Favorite posts from around the blogosphere:

Rather Be Reading – EXCELLENT tips for book bloggers attending conferences.
Myra McEntire – Timepiece is now available for request on Netgalley – Myra has the “Quick and Dirty Hourglass Recap” on her blog for those who need a refresher course. Plus the post is hysterical.

What I’m reading:
I read Summoning the Night (Arcadia Bell bk #2) by Jenn Bennett – love it!, Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn – cute but meh, Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story (Divergent #1.1) – It’s Four…so of course it was awesome! Duh!, Insurgent by Veronica Roth – Incredible!, Endurance by Ann Aguirre (Razorland novella) at Heroes and Heartbreakers – I <3 Stone & Thimble.

  1. oh the joy of books video! i love it! wow, a signed copy of where she went! very cool!

  2. love your mailbox and I would have gotten more signed for you :) Yes Four is amazing . xoxo

  3. I can't believe I haven't read Free Four. I love Four! I really enjoyed Graffiti Moon. I'm curious to see what you think. Have a great week!

  4. Love the video! It's like an OK Go MV but without the people. :-)

  5. I still have to read the Free Four story! Being sick is the worst.

    Ooh I've read great things about Graffitti Moon, I hope you like it :) and signed Where She Went yay!! I haven't read those books but everyone loves them.

  6. Oooh i want to read Graffiti Moon and look forward to your thoughts. You had a great week on the blog. You can see my books and news on The Sunday Post

  7. Wasn't Free Four awesome?!?!? GAH! We need more from his POV. :) Also, that post by Magan at Rather Be Reading is fantastic. Everyone should read it.

  8. I always like the look of a book shelf organized by color. I've never done it to my own shelf. That movie must have taken forever to put together. I can't imagine having to move all those books around so much.
    I really liked the Free Four tidbit as well. So excited for Insurgent even if it will leave me wishing for more.
