Manic Monday: The Week To Come

Today is manic, and I hate chaotic Mondays when I can't catch my breath or take a nap. Naps are important to my well-being:) I'm heading off to the Scholastic Book Fair this morning at 9 a.m. until Noon. I help the kids find what they are looking for, check them out if they are buying, write down titles if they are waiting to buy at conferences and basically drool over all the fresh, smelling brand new books. At the last book fair the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books flew off the shelves. It's like mass hysteria with certain titles.

Last week I received some very cool books from contests:
The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox
Kiss & Hell from Dakota Cassidy
Underground, and Vanished by Kat Richardson

I also bought Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole, which I finished and will be reviewing this week. I also picked up Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz, to read before my Young Adult Week.

Speaking of YA Week here at Wayfaring Writer. So far, I have SEVEN books to giveaway that week! It's shaping up really well and I have been reading and reviewing for that week as well. It will start on April 4th.

This Thursday I will host a Blog Tour for the fantasy book The River Kings' Road, complete with a contest, and my review.

The Accidental Demon Slayer series sounds like a great series. I have been wanting to try these, along with millions of other books too. :)

My son has been wanting to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I was not to fond of letting him read it with the fear it is about picking on kids and I am really strongly against him doing that. Which he doesn't and he is very sympathetic to other children who are getting picked on and will try standing up for them or helping them.

Speaking of YA Week. I have a few YA books here to read. I am wanting to get to them. I need to get to them. I'll be looking forward to you YA Week! I enjoy reading YA books too.
