On My Shelf (7)

On My Shelf highlights books I've acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I'm writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It's Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. ;)

Parties and Potions by Sarah Mlynowski
Pub. date: December 2008
Perfect hair, cute clothes, healthy tans—life’s a breeze when you’re a witch! Even special witchcraft classes Rachel agrees to attend with Miri turn out to be fun. The sisters meet other teen witches just like them—who knew? Everyone’s preparing for a magical party called a Samsorta—a debutante ball for witches. And it wouldn’t be a ball without warlocks. Cute ones. Like Adam, who wants to slow dance with Rachel, and ski with her in the Rockies—on a school night! Of course, Rachel is madly in love with her boyfriend, Raf. So why can’t she bring herself to tell Adam—funny, charming Adam—that Raf exists?

Rachel knows Raf likes her. Maybe even, gulp, loves her. But Raf doesn’t know her secret. Unlike Adam, Raf doesn’t know who she really is. And she can never tell him. Or can she?
BIG HUGE THANKS to Orchid for this one! I love this series, and this was the only book I didn't have, so she gave me her copy when she won it in a grab bag from Random Buzzers. Orchid, you're awesome. *hugs*

This week, I hardly got ANY reading done. *cries* I usually read at night, but lately I've been watching movies instead. STUPID MOVIES! TAKING UP ALL MY READING TIME! THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!! Okay, it's partly my fault to for not making time to read, but movies definitely take most of the blame. ;P

I did manage to get a little reading done this week. I read one chapter of Hex and started Fruits Basket vol. 18. Both are good, and both will be getting more attention next week. Actually, I'm hoping to finish Fruits Basket tonight. I will have Hex finished by next week's On MySHELF. I will!

In other news, I'm giving away a copy of Hex, A Witch and Angel Tale. Check out THIS POST to enter. Contest closes tomorrow at midnight, and the winner (if I remember to tally the entries) will be announced Monday (later if I procrastinate on those entries too long, as I often do).

I believe that's it for this week. Happy reading everyone! Hopefully you'll get more reading done than I did this week.
