Oh Behave

June 9th. That's the day school is over for me (well, for a few weeks) and the day I can start reading/blogging in earnest again. Until then, well, the half-hearted, guilty and distracted reading and blogging prevails.

I did get to read The Wake of the Lorelei Lee: Being an Account of the Adventures of Jacky Faber, on Her Way to Botany Bay (Bloody Jack, Book 8) by L. A. Meyer. As always, freaking brilliant, and months early thanks to Netgalley.com. And instead of studying for my fourth chem test (I got a B) I read The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa, also through Netgalley.com--totally worth the sleepless night and less-than-stellar grade! (Alert, an exclusive Iron Fey short story will be available for download on Julie's website TODAY, June 1st!) I'll be posting reviews for those and other e-galleys I've read next week.

I also read Sea by Heidi R. Kling, which was an awesome debut novel and sure to be a big hit this summer.

I also got to meet C.J. Omololu, author of Dirty Little Secrets, who is, by the way, very tall, very sweet, and very friendly! I can't wait to read more of her stuff :D Picture soon; I'm trying to get ready for my drawing final in a few hours, so I'm afraid that's it for the moment.

Hmmm, should I sleep, or read?

I think you know the answer...

No reading here...

I'm halfway through Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell ...the meeting is this Sunday, which gives me a *little* bit of time to finish. In the meantime I've read The Prince of Mist and Dying to Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road which were both excellent (and much shorter)

and I met Lauren Myracle! She was super cool (again, a more comprehensive post when the semester ends. I have so much to tell you!)

I also hung out with Bob Boyle who drew in all of our Hugo and Wubbzy books... but I forgot to get a photo--sigh! It's ok, he'll be back for the Book Derby (aaaand... more info on that later).

I need to get through two final exams, one painting, seven drawings, 65 sketchbook pages, three prints, and two labs, then I'll be home free!!! (o_O) guh.

Until then, no reading for fun except when necessitated by book clubs. Wish me luck!
