Manic Monday Recaps (Week 5/10/10)

I hope all you lovely mommy's out there had a marvelous Mother's Day with plenty of hugs and kisses from your children. I sure did. Plus in lieu of my awesome motherness the hubs surprise this mom with a shnazzy shopping spree. Oh yes, momma's got a whole new wardrobe for her cruise... excited! I'm 10 days away from my cruise so life has been hectic in my household, which means I'm not getting a lot of reading done. Boo! Hopefully I'll accomplish more this week.

Here's what I plan on reading this week:

Last week I read the following:
- Wild Fire by Christine Feehan
- Ecstasy Unveiled by Larissa Ione
- The Night Fairy by Laura Amy Schlitz
- The Season of Second Chances by Diane Meier

Still working on:
- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
- The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan (e-book)
- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith (audiobook)

I reviewed the following:
- The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt [review]
- Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl [review]
- Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison [review]

On a side note, I had the opportunity of meeting Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. Whoot! These gals were amazing. They had a fabulous turnout with loads of people there who had a ton of questions for them - which, I might add, they answered graciously. Wow! I was seriously impressed these ladies not only took on a room full of mostly teenagers, but answered all sorts of questions from "where their inspirations came from" to "whether or not they liked Twilight". They both read a couple of minutes from their latest/soon to be published work (H. Black from White Cat and C. Clare from Clockwork Angel) and once all that was over, they signed the tons of books everyone took with them. I mean I had to take a tote bag in order to carry the five that I took alone.

All in all, my friends (a/k/a Book♥Soulmates) and I had a fab night - with books, amazing authors - who I now feel as if I need to buy everything they have ever written just because they were so nice and their camaraderie so genuine that they instantly upgraded to faves in my book - food and more books, of course.

Have a great week my lovelies!
