It's Tuesday!

Tuesday is a very exciting day for book lovers, as it has many many new releases. Here's the two I'm most excited for:

AHHHH! I'll definitely be hitting up the Books-A-Million on Thursday for these two. (I say Thursday because my family and I will need something to do to kill time before we go to The Avengers premiere, which is something I'm really excited about because JOSS WHEDON! And IRON MAN. I love Iron Man so much. Even if the second movie was, well, you know.) When You Were Mine also came out today, which Simon and Schuster sent me yesterday as a lovely surprise. It looks fantastic so I can't wait to start it.

Oh and while I'm doing Tuesday things, I suppose I'll go ahead and share a teaser with you.
"We, um--we should be watching the turtles." She's breathless and doesn't sound at all convinced. I cast a glance over the edge of the tarp. The first two turtles have left the nest and a third--no, a third and fourth are pushing their way up through the sand. 
"We should." The apple scent of her hair tangles around my brain as my  lips brush her neck. She shivers in a way that has nothing to do with the temperature, and it pleases me in a way I can't even explain. That time, I kiss her.--From page 99 of Something Like Normal, by Trish Doller
So far I'm really enjoying this, and as I'm halfway through it I hope to finish it tonight. I've been a reading machine lately. Mostly because I'm still sitting a lot and reading and sitting happen to go very well together. I'm also reading Pandemonium, but I won't be sharing a teaser for it since it's a sequel and will contain spoilers for the first book no matter what.


There's also Tune In Tuesday, which seems to basically be a meme that gives me an excuse to share music on my book blog, so YAY. It's hosted by Ginger at GReads, and this month is the random playlists edition. HOLLA.


Turn Off This Song by The Lonely Forest
I've been LOVING this band, The Lonely Forest, lately. This is the song that hooked me, and even though I never go outside when I listen to it that doesn't mean I don't love it.


Heart's A Mess by Gotye
This song, like Somebody That I Used To Know, has an infectious beat and lyrics you'll want to belt at the top of your lungs.

Oh, and in case you're interested: I saw my surgeon today, and he said that I'm looking good and can return to normal life as much as I feel comfortable doing, so woooo! Can you see why I'm (obviously) in a good mood?

  2. Happy to hear you've gotten the green light from the surgeon. I'm also happy you're enjoying SLN, but not nearly so much as knowing you're doing better.

    1. Aww, thanks Trish! And yes, I REALLY enjoy SLN, but of course you know that. :)
