blog news 3 Comments

Hello everyone! I’m leaving for Portland tomorrow for five days!

Harper Imprint Challenge: Comments or Suggestions?

blog news 1 Comment

Scratch my last post, I’ve changed my mind. I have a question for you guys though, would you prefer to have this challenge in November or December? Or should I maybe wait and have it in the first month or two of 2012? Maybe have a theme of Harper 2012 debuts? Or maybe 2012 anticipated sequels? If you guys have any comments or suggestions about what you’d like to see in this challenge let me know! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a description of the event I held in July.

New domain name!

blog news 3 Comments

Hello everyone! I just wanted to announce that I bought my own domain name today for the blog. Http://www.starryskybooks.com! I’m glad I’ve finally done this. It’s much easier to type out than the old blogspot URL. On another note, I know I haven’t posted anything the last few days. I’ve been in a small reading/blogging funk. Been watching Japanese anime instead. I recently revised my to be read pile though, decided to make it less concrete in terms of what had to be read when so that I wouldn’t feel so pressured. I think that will help a lot. Hopefully… Read more »

Vacation!

blog news 1 Comment

Yes everyone, I’m going on vacation this weekend. I leave Thursday for Portland, Oregon, and come back Tuesday night. However, IĀ don’t have anything scheduled so there will more than likely be no posts while I’m gone. I had planned and trying to post a little, but then I dropped my laptop and the screen is completely screwed up. Since it’s still new it should be under warranty, which I’m calling about tomorrow. But I won’t be taking my laptop with me anymore! šŸ™ Also, because of this huge hassle I won’t be posting anything else before I leave in two… Read more »

Image found through weheartit.com ļ»æ I started this blog on December 23, 2010. Wow, it’s six months later. When I first started blogging I was thinking six months is a long time away, I’ll probably end upĀ stopping before that point. But here I am, still going and excited for another six months! Unfortunately, I will not be holding a giveaway in celebration of this milestone as I already have two going, plus another one coming up next week. I will share with you some stats and thoughts though. In the last six months I have acquired about 107 books. This… Read more »

Blogger Apocalypse

As you all probably know, Blogger has been down for a day. I was completely lazy and just used that day to read and watch movies, so I don’t have anything prepared to post right now, but hopefully tonight I can whip a review to post and get back to regular posting with tomorrow’s IMM. So yes. Hope everyone else managed to enjoy the time off! See ya later.

If you have any of your own posts about your bookcases, feel free to leave a link in the comments, I always love to see what other people have in their bookcases! On to the pictures.

The second bookcase has mostly books I haven’t read, but a few I have. Plus… Read more »

Blog Tour post tomorrow! Glimmer by Vivi Anna

blog news 1 Comment

Tomorrow as part of a Bewitching Blog Tour, I’ll be posting a review for Glimmer by Vivi Anna. In the meantime, here is the summary of the book as well as an author bio! Summary from Good Reads:Although Nina Deckerā€™s father is one hundred percent human, her mother is not. She belongs to an ancient and rare race of people called the fae. But these fae are not those written about in fairytales, with pretty gossamer wings and fairy dust, no they are sinister, malevolent and unkind, dwelling in another realm called Nightfall. More prone to destroy than to create…. Read more »
