New Crayons

This week was an amazing week! BBAW and my birthday. I participated in a BBAW meme, but due to schoolwork I didn't get to participate as actively in BBAW as I would have liked. My birthday was Friday and I am so appreciative of all the birthday wishes the blogging community sent my way. Thanks for all the emails and comments! *Virtual hug*

New Crayons is run by Color Online. In the New Crayons meme, I share what new books I got this week. I got 2 books this week, one to giveaway and one for myself. The book I received to giveaway will be posted soon :)

So my birthday was Friday and what do I find when I get home? A package. Not just any package. This package contained one of the greatest birthday presents of all time!*drumroll*....................

LIAR by Justine Larbalestier!

Micah will freely admit that she’s a compulsive liar, but that may be the one honest thing she’ll ever tell you. Over the years she’s duped her classmates, her teachers, and even her parents, and she’s always managed to stay one step ahead of her lies. That is, until her boyfriend dies under brutal circumstances and her dishonesty begins to catch up with her. But is it possible to tell the truth when lying comes as naturally as breathing? Taking readers deep into the psyche of a young woman who will say just about anything to convince them—and herself—that she’s finally come clean, Liar is a bone-chilling thriller that will have readers see-sawing between truths and lies right up to the end. Honestly.

I've already started reading it and so far it's incredible! I freaked out when I got it and my mom didn't understand how big a deal this was, especially because she didn't know about the whole original Liar cover controversy. I'm so happy I got it :D


  1. Glad to hear you enjoyed your birthday! Now about Liar. I'm jealous but as an adult I can't pout, but I really want to read this (no pressure you understand). lol

    We didn't get any books this week. Very happy that you received such a special package on your birthday. Here's to many more.

  2. Hey that's okay! Receiving a book that you feel so passionately about is a reason to scream!

    So glad you had a wonderful birthday!

  3. I look forward to hearing all about Liar, eager to read it myself when I can get my hands on a copy. Delighted also to read you had a great birthday, that is more than super. I hope to post my notes about THE WATSONS this coming Wednesday....

    As to fonts, I have had trouble today as I can't get anything on the internet to be big enough to see well without a magnifying glass - your posting is the first thing I can read normally! (Or is it my eyes? No, friends say something is wrong as well.)

    Have a great week!

  4. Every time I see the crayons picture, I have this irresistible urge to color - new crayons are just too pretty :D

    Happy birthday - and glad you are enjoying LIAR :D

  5. I didn't know your birthday was on Friday, Ari. Happy Belated :)

  6. Aww. so happy about the Liar surprise! And happy belated birthday, darling. *huggg*


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
