First Daughter and The Joy of Spooking after dinner.
There were some nice surprises for me this week. I was one of the winners for Bookshipper's Hachette Book Giveaway, so I have 14 brand new books coming my way from the publisher. (I didn't shriek excitedly and scare several cats when I found this out. No, that was clearly another bookish person named Ruth...) I won a copy of The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex and Other True Stories from Kelly at The Optimistic Book Fool. From her review, it sounds like a great read. I also won a copy of Surviving Ben's Suicide by C. Comfort Shields, which I'm really eager to read after reading her review and interview with the author.
My blog has undergone a redesign this week. Please take a look and let me know what you think!
I'm running two contests this week, one for Kaimira: The Sky Village and one for The Gargoyle. There's still plenty of time to enter both if you haven't already.
The Week in Reviews:
The Ruby in the Smoke by Phillip Pullman
Aberrations by Penelope Przekop
Happy reading, everyone!
