My Week in a Wrapped #9


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Another slow reading progress this week so I only posted one review and a bunch of memes. I’m pretty happy about it though. I only wish I could have more time lazing around, check awesome blogs (I want to see my friends’ Teasers, WoWs, etc. I haven’t done that in a while, it sucks!), write snail mails to friends, perhaps watch some TV and read tons. I guess I can have a nickname.. Ultimate Energizer Bunny cause I never slow down. I keep going and going and going. Yeah. Yeah. I know you get the point, but I want to stress it more. 😆 Anyway, I rarely logged in to Twitter and I was so happy (That I want to share this with you guys) when I checked my notifications and saw this:

Seriously? She actually read my review or this is something like “Hey assistant, check Twitter for anything about our book. Make sure to reply to keep readers happy.” LOL! 😛 I usually just received notifications that authors “Favorited Your Tweet” and that’s it. She even did this when I posted my Wow and Teaser Tuesday about Snow Like Ashes so I’m so happy (If this is really her).

Is this normal or I’m reacting like a newbie? I can’t help feeling like a kid on Christmas day while opening presents. 😆 Oh wait aside from Sara, I got this from Alexandra for my Suspicion Wow:

Romina Russel, author of The Zodiac tweeted this when I won her book’s giveaway 😀

And this is from Vicki for my WoW feature for Crown of Ice

That’s about it, the rest clicked “Favorite” or “Retweet” and done with it (Oh! That’s effort there). I’m not mad at them or even irritated. I didn’t expect my blog to be noticed since there’s a zillion bloggers worldwide. We all know how busy they are, but a single tweet of appreciation won’t hurt I guess. Especially if the reader exerted effort to spread the word (Even if it’s just from the assistant or secretary. Lol). Again, I’m not even expecting this. I’m just so happy they had time to reply so I felt the need to share it. Have you received something like this from Twitter or any of your social media accounts? If you did, how did you feel? Can you give me their names? Just curious. 😀

Book Update: Fairest & Winter of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I’ve been waiting for Winter for what felt like ages now. Last November the 10th, it is exactly 365 days before its released. Can you just imagine that? So today, it’s 358 more freaking days. I wish I could have a time machine so I could easily jump to the future, grab that book, read it and post a review. Surely, a lot will die in envy. Lol. On the other hand, Fairest will be released on January 27th of next year. Still, it’s a two-month long wait more or less. These waits can be so frustrating at times.

Anyway, while waiting for those awesome additions to the Lunar Chronicles, Marissa’s publisher is brewing an awesome event that will be released on December 1st. It will be called #CyborgMonday!

Cyborg Monday

It will include teasers from Winter and Fairest, tour announcements, videos and Q&A with Marissa herself. Plus a super special awesome secret, as Marissa confirmed on her blog, and a lot more. 😀

Aside from that, they have also announced a new fan art contest.

Waiting on Wednesday #5

I’m not certain if I’ll be glad about this or what. Pretty torn. I must admit, I’m a little disappointed when I heard the news. The anticipation is killing me and then this happened. This week’s WOW feature would be a new book from my favorite, Marissa Meyer.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.


I’m not being bipolar and stuff, but I’m so thrilled when Marissa introduced her new masterpiece. Dated June 16, she posted a blog announcing the news. She will be having this full-length novel about the wicked tyrant of the Lunar Chronicles coming in January next year. The 27th of January 2015 to be exact. If you are wondering who she is, you must be living under a rock, sipping your pink lemonade and staring to nothingness. That could have been dull.

According to Marissa, Fairest will be delving into the back story of Queen Levana. It will start when she’s 15 years old and will cover about 10 years of her life, it will end about a decade before Cinder. They also confirmed that it will also feature the early version of Cinder and Winter as little children and a back story of the scientist, Dr. Erland.
