Bad Bloggers

I have been seeing people doing this around the blogsphere, and I wasn't sure if I wanted to participate or not. I figured it couldn't hurt to keep track of where I hear about books, though, right? So, I think I am going to start 'blaming' people when books walk into my house. Since I just back from the library, I thought today was a good day to start. This is also a good way to discover the books that walk into my house, since I am actually really bad at mentioning them!

So far this week I have received:

by Ursula K. Le Guin - I think Nymeth is to blame for this. I know she has read them, but I can't remember if she was the reason or not. I used to like Le Guin and then I read some of her Earthsea books... Anyway, I am blaming her.

East by Edith Pattou - Becky is to blame for this one. I remember reading her review and immediately adding it to my wish list!

Signora Da Vinci by Robin Maxwell - Teddy sent me a copy of this book. (Thanks Teddy!) So, I think she deserves some blame, right?

Then, I went away on the weekend to visit a couple of my friends. One of my friends just started reading more, and she actually lent me two books! It's weird because she never used to read and I always used to try and get her to, so the fact that I am blaming her for books coming in my houses is a bit ironic! (I think I am to blame partly. I got her addicted to Douglas Coupland!)

The books:
Burned by Ellen Hopkins
Crank by Ellen Hopkins (finished this one last night.)

I also received:
The Unwritten Girl by James Bow (Review forth-coming. From the author)
Fathom Five by James Bow (From the author)
The Young City by James Bow (From the author)

And, two advanced reading copies:
Little Bee by Chris Cleave
Mutiny on the Bounty by John Boyne

I stole the graphic from Chris... He doesn't mind, right?


  1. I'm glad you're blaming me because I really love that series :D Chris and Becky liked Gifts too, though. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

    And I'd forgotten, but Becky is indeed the reason why I got East. So many people are doing Bad Bloggers these days...I probably won't be able to resist joining in for much longer :P

  2. It's fun to blame other people... :)

  3. wait.. you can blame authors?? Ohhhh, nice touch Kelly! lol love it! hahaha

  4. Isn't it fun to call people Bad Bloggers!? lol..I love it. Glad you're joining in! You got so many good books this week. Can't wait to see what you think of Gifts. Or are you done already? lol

  5. Deslily: I think I might make a separate thing for review copies... I haven't figured out what I am going to do yet.

    Chris: I finished Gifts already... I just have to review it!

  6. I'm doing the library loot but I doubt I could keep track of something like this!

  7. Tink: I am not sure how it is going to work out. I don't really write down where I hear about books from...


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
