AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today is Wild Wednesday!!!!!!!
It has been a wild week, and what better way to start a blog than with a crazed mindset? The answer is none...because crazy is gooooooooddd!
Topic of the day: Advance Reader Copies(ARCs)
The more I look for really good YA ARCs the harder they are to find. I have discovered one place to find them, netGalley. It is a free membership and you can request as many of them as you would like. The ARCs come in a electronic format that you can put onto you Nook or Kindle if you so decide. From my understanding they are always a competition to get, so you have to act fast and get them while they last.
I just received my first ARC this morning!!!! And it will be my next review. It is THE KEENING by A. LaFaye. From what I can see on the quick reviews on GoodReads, it seems to be a sad book that a majority of people like. I, however, am exteremly excited about it! I feel like I need to take pictures of it or something to make sure that I remember it perfectly. Ahh...sweet memories... Anywho...
Here is the synopsis of it: "Born into a family with artistry in their fingers, Lyza laments that her only talent is carving letters into wood. That is until her life is turned upside down when her mother succumbs to the influenza pandemic of 1918, which is devastating their small coastal town in Maine. With her mother gone, Lyza must protect her eccentric father, who runs the risk of being committed, especially now that he claims he’s waiting for the return of his dead wife. Can Lyza save her father and find her own path in the process?"
I am curious as to where everyone else gets their ARCs and what your first was? And were you crazy enough to dig out the camera and make memories? Or am I just that weird?...Don't answer that last one.
Oh, on a side note I finished MATCHED by Ally Condie. Look for a review on that later today or tomorrow. See you then!
