Surprise on My Doorstop

Hurray for books in the mail! I walked outside my door about an hour ago, only to discover a package waiting for me.

Come here, book. Give us a kiss!

That's right, Reader! The UPS man brought me an ARC of Laini Taylor's forthcoming book Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I can't WAIT to read it!!! Shout out to my friend Faye for sending it to me. I promise, I will tell you guys all about it when I'm done!
Question: Based on this photo, am I going to read the book or eat it??

Answer: I'm going to DEVOUR it, of course!

Silly Reader.

The only problem is that between this book and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, I'm going to have a hard time finishing chapter five of my own novel by Wednesday. What a delightful conundrum...


  1. So jealous!! I have to wait until October to get my copy :( I didn't love Lips Touch, but the Blackbringer series was amazing. Let me know how you like it!


  3. Eeeek! I swear, I'm leaving work at the bookstore early today so I can write!! I have to because tomorrow I *might* be taking a super crazy road trip to New Hampshire to see Neil Gaiman!!

    But even Neil Gaiman cannot get in the way of Chapter Five!

  4. I am vicariously super enthused at even the *might*ness of your seeing Neil Gaiman. (Minus the 'vicariou's.) I hope you can. The only thing more awesome is finishing chapter 5. ;)
