Good morning, I just flew in from Orlando and boy are my arms are tired!
I know, an old joke, but honestly that's exactly how I feel. I left for the NTEC conference, which was held in Disney World, Thursday morning, and got back Sunday afternoon, and I am worn out. This was my first national conference, and about the only thing I can say that went right, was all the fabulous books (many of them ARCs) I got from the various venders, who were there. Here are just a few of the books I carried home with me.
Teenie by Christopher Grant
Wishful Thinking by Alexandra Bullen
Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Numbers: The Chaos by Rachel Ward
Inifinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Flappers:Vixen by Jullian Larkin
Songs of a Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson
War Child: A Child Soldier's Story by Emmanuel Jal
Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa Klein
Nightspell by Leah Cypess
Clarity by Kim Harrington
I have another whole box of books that I shipped, including not one but two signed copies of Cloaked by Alex Flinn (can you see a giveaway coming soon). I was really excited about meeting Alex, because I loved Beastly, and A Kiss in Time so much I created an entire unit around the books for my students.
I have to admit I was not impressed with Disney World, and that holding the conference there was a terrible idea. Without a car to navigate the immense park, I was forced to be bussed every where, and walk miles every day. I will say that the park is beautiful, and the people who work there extraordinary at customer service.
So, my week's reading was close to non-existent.
I am currently reading:
Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton and enjoying it a lot. I hope to finish this today.
Last week I only had time for one review.
Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
