Farewell Anonymous

Dear Anonymous Spammy Commenters,

It's not me - it's you. The way you comment on my posts about generic but mostly unrelated things, compliment my 'content,' and then ask me ever so nicely to visit your webpage. And this just isn't working out - I know you're a spam, you know you're a spam . . . do you see where I'm going with this?

It's a pain in the butt to have to delete all your spammy comments. So, Anonymous commenter, I think that it's time that we go our separate ways. I've disabled the Anonymous commenting option, so from now on, O Spam Lords, you must either comment with an account or not comment at all.

I think we both know how this is going to end.

Books and Stuff

So. This week is midterms. And because it would be too easy on me if my exams were spread out over the weak, I have Bio and O Chem on the SAME DAY.

I have such an exciting life.

ANYWAY. Something that makes me happy is dreaming about new books to read. Let's have some happy time, okay?

Okay, so I've already talked about wanting to read this book. It comes out March 12, which is while I'm on spring break! Yipee! I am so excited.
This book doesn't come out until forever. Or, you know, until 10/1/13. Which might as well be forever away. I enjoyed the first one - and guys, there's a freaking unicorn-pegasus thing on the cover. Even if I hadn't liked the first book, I would still make lovey-gooey eyes at this one.
I was super excited, because when I read that this comes out on May 28th, my brain autocorrected it to March 28th. And when I realized that it is not, in fact, coming out this month, and that it won't be out until I'm on summer break, I may have cried. A lot.
Have I blogged about Merrie Haskell's The Princess Curse? Because that is a book I love deeply. I read a Middle Grade Monday review of it, and I bought it last spring not really knowing what to expect, and it completely blew me away. It was so much more then I was expecting - it's definitely earned a spot beside Wildwood Dancing and The Goose Girl as one of my favorite fairy tale retellings.
This comes out at the end of April, right before finals. I read Unraveling right after finals last spring, and it was my first non-school book in months. You know when someone who's been on a diet suddenly has a lot of fruit and chocolate and freaks out about how good it all is, and practically dies of ecstasy?
Yeah. Um. That was me with Unraveling.
I read Aurelia by this author and I really enjoyed, and everything I've heard about this book has been fantastic, enthusiastic praise. So I can't wait to finally read it. I'm thinking a spring break read, to reward myself for surviving midterms. Along with Poison, which comes out that week. I think these two books sound like an excellent way to spend my week off.
What are you guys looking forward to?
