More Reads and Release Stuff

As you may already know, I've got a new book coming out in November! Stay tuned to this space, because I'm starting to plan release-type awesomeness, and you are totally invited to participate! At this point, I don't have plans to do a full Night of the Giving Dead, but I do have other things up my sleeve that I hope you'll enjoy. More on that once I finish these edits and get a handle on exactly what I'm doing.

In the meantime, here's what I've been procrastinating with lately, book-wise. For those of you who missed it, the numbers are a part of my goal to read 50 books before my kids go back to school. This week's list is short, because I'm in the middle of reading three of them. Le sigh.

23. Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Somehow I got on a Medusa book kick, and I'm not complaining. A quick, fun read, and the title anagrams to "Dorks embrace sheens." I don't know what that means, but I think it's funny.

24. Snobs by Julian Fellowes
A book by the creator of Gosford Park and Downton Abbey? YES PLEASE. Sadly, "snobs" doesn't anagram to anything. Unless it's "B.S. Nos," which sounds like a very weird degree.

25. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
I know, I know. This book has been on my to-read list for forever, and I hate myself for taking so long to get to it. It's pretty impressive when a book can make you laugh and cry, but this one manages to do it simultaneously, which is pure genius. And the anagrammer made me take out the articles, but the title still anagrams to "Adaptabilities reunited a lorn my yurt." I'd read that.

26. Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies by Andrea Beaty
This is a hilarious read for people who have outgrown Captain Underpants. Except that you can never outgrow Captain Underpants. And if the original title isn't funny enough, it anagrams to "A cab sniff hulk nutty toffee." HULK NUTTY TOFFEE IS NOW MY FAVORITE CANDY.

Did you know that BAD TASTE IN BOYS can be anagrammed as "Antibody Beasts"? I think that is SO AWESOME.

Jessica, I haven't read the second one, but I totally plan on it. The first was creepy and fun at the same time, which is right up my alley!

Liesel, thanks! I really did enjoy them and am on to other things. Got to try and cut the to-read list down to a semi-manageable length!
