  • “Shiver” by Maggie Stiefvater for our readalong in November. If anybody else would like to join, let me know.
  • “Steampunk” edited by Ann & Jeff Vandermeer, an anthology I want to read for the Steampunk challenge.



And I received the best bookish gift ever in the mail on Saturday….

Carin from A little bookish has been to the Texas Book Festival a few weeks ago and got me some awesomeness. Not only did she sent me a travel mug saying “Texas Book Festival” on it , she also bought me Leviathan and Behemoth for the Steampunk challenge and had them signed by Scott Westerfeld and then almost bankrupted herself shipping the enormous package to me! Yes, Carin, I did look at the label and almost fainted.

Now, look at those wonderful goodies that she sent me!


And here we have the inside:

leviathan behemoth

I am totally made up about this. I haven’t really got a lot of signed books, mostly because the authors I read never come to our city / country for signings, so this is a real treat for me. Thank you, Carin! This is a brilliant gift!

I am sure not many of you had better stuff in their mailbox this week, but tell me anyway :).

  1. Oh yay! I’m so glad you like it! The shipping was expensive, but since you are so happy I think it was worth it especially since you don’t get a lot of English language authors going to Bavaria. It was a fun thing to do for you and I was happy to do it. I even told Scott Westerfeld about your Steampunk Challenge and he thought that was really cool. I’m so glad you like it–oh, and the mug was super cheap! It was the last one they had and I had told you it was the old festival logo so it was probably 60-70% off. That was a super find since I know you like coffee mugs. I probably shouldn’t tell you I discount shopped for you, should I?! It’s the bargain shopper in me!


  2. Shiver, yay! One of my favourite books (5/5 stars review). I’ve bought the UK and German edition because I loved it so much:D And great choice for the Steampunk Challenge, need to get some books for it,too:)

    • Ich habe ernsthaft daran gedacht, mir die deutsche Version zu kaufen, schon alleine, weil mir das Cover sehr gut gefaellt. Dann habe ich mich aber doch fuer das Original entschieden. Ich freue mich schon auf’s Lesen.
