Weirdest Reader

So…I’m probably the worst person to be around if I’m reading. Normally, I’m either really bitchy sarcastic or just silent. But when I’m reading…when I’m reading I seem to forgot that I’m an actual human being. You want me to act civilized? You’re lucky if I’ll set down the book for a minute to listen to what your saying. 
The characters are running away from a bad guy/having a serious conversation/acting adorable/kissing. That’s what’s really important. Obviously.
While reading a book, I also have a habit to forget how to form actual words. I will make half laughing/screeching noises, whale noises, squees, extensive cusses, and many “I knew it”s. For the sake of this post, cusses and “I knew it” don’t count as actual words, even though they do. 
Thankfully, my sister’s learned to ignore me by now or else I’d be in a lot of trouble. If something awkward or awesome happens, I’ll jump, dance, run up and down the stairs, cackle like a maniac, or all of the above. My family probably thinks I’m insane, but whatever.
Because I’m talking about books, guys. BOOKS.
Yeah, so I probably shouldn’t read in a library. Ever.

Cover Reveal: Clockwork Princess

For those of you who don't have a twitter or who were absent from today's exciting hashtag fest, here's the cover of Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Princess, the last book of The Infernal Devices. To "fight the mist" that covered this image, we had to tweet #ClockworkPrincess. It was a lot of fun and we wound up making #ClockworkPrincess trend worldwide. Now that's dedication for you!

Isn't it beautiful? It's probably my favorite cover from this series. I mean, just look at Tessa. She's so pretty. And her book is glowing. The book is glowing. I wish my books glowed because then I'd always have a light with me.

YA Crush Tourney: Team Tod

Guess whose match begins at 12:00 pm Eastern time tonight. Magnus? Well, yes, but I wasn't really talking about him. I'm talking about Tod, you silly person. Tod, the lovely reaper from Soul Screamers. 

His first match is tonight and will be on for the next 24 hours. Keep watch of Ina's blog and twitter for updates because she's Tod's advocate.

Check out my twitter and my tumblr today and tomorrow for some of my favorite Tod Hudson quotes! 

Get the word out via twitter, blog, facebook, tumblr, a sign taped to your cat, ect. #TeamTod

Waiting on Wednesday (10)

A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases future releases we're looking forward to.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Expected Publication Date: February 5th 2013

No blurb available.

Frankly, I want to see more of Warner. It must make me some kind of sick, twisted person, but I really enjoy his character. There's something so fundamentally wrong with him that just draws my attention to him every time he appears on the page. So yeah, maybe by loving his character, there's something wrong with me too.

Oh yeah, I want to see more of Juliet too. And Adam. And Kenji. Basically, I want to see everyone again!

Sorry for disappearing for a week with just another meme to show for it. I've been extremely sick recently and being on the computer for extended periods of time gives me a really bad headache. I'm such a bad book blogger.
