Added to the Bookshelf – 12/16/12

Posted December 16, 2012 by Melissa in Added to the Bookshelf, In My Mailbox, Showcase Sunday | 26 Comments

Sharing the week’s bookish news and the books & bookish goodies that I’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been gifted and have added to my bookshelves over the past week!

(Inspired by Mailbox Monday, IMM, Clock Rewinders and the like)

Notes From Melissa:

I can’t believe that Christmas is just over a week away.  I have maybe 20% of my shopping completed and no wrapping done yet…I really need to push for the finish here! LOL  Where do you guys stand with your Christmas preparations?

In other news: I received an email this week from Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group indicating that my blog (as well as many other wonderful book blogs) will be featured in the Cinder paperback! I loved Cinder, you can see my review here, and am so thrilled to be recognized!  Check out the watermarked version of the page below!  My blog is the ninth one down in the third column!

The Cinder paperback goes on sale January 8, 2013! The paperback will include the following bonus material:

-Special bonus story, entitled Glitches
-Q&A with author Marissa Meyer
-Reader’s Guide
-Sneak peek of Scarlet

I also bit the bullet this week and joined Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights! This event looks liek it will be so much fun…click on the button to go check it out!:

      1. I am in the Cinder paperback as well…below your name! I love the Anna prize exciting and Everbound..woot! woot! Amazing haul this week. I loved the reviews you shared this week and look forward to the week ahead. Enjoy your day! The Sunday Post

      2. Brilliant haul this week! The one that stood out for me has to be Everbound! I was just thinking about Everneath and I loved that book! I can’t wait for this one and I’m so jealous you have proof copy! I can’t wait to see what you think of the book! 😀

        Enjoy them all!

        Here’s My Showcase Sunday

      3. Oh I’m jealous you’re listed in the paperback of Cinder, that’s awesome! I loved it as well! I cant wait for the next book!
        Love the prize pack you got,that’s awesome!
        Great book week, once again!

      4. So cool being mentioned there 😀 Congrats!

        And good books too.

        As for shopping, I am almost done. Might have 3 more to buy and wrap. I was good and did some wrapping this weekend and trust me, they look horrid. I am so bad at it

      5. AHH, so freaking fabulous on getting in Cinder! That is so neat! I loved that book, although I about died at the end (ahhhhhh, falls of cliff…). Do you have Scarlet? Please tell me they AT LEAST sent you Scarlet?!?! I haven’t been around the blog much to know whether you got it or not so I apologize if you’ve already shown that one off 😉 Can you tell I’m just a wee bit excited for you (uh, and Scarlet, too!).

        Nice pack of swag with Anna Karenina!! 🙂 And you are freaking busy! It’s the holidays! Go get your shopping done and stop making me feel like a loser blogger b/c I can’t get any reviews done (I’m kidding – you just rock!!!) Have a great week!!!!
