Silver Phoenix - Contest

Today is the release date for Cindy Pon's debut novel, SILVER PHOENIX: BEYOND THE KINDOM OF XIA.

To celebrate the release of her book Cindy in holding a contest to win one of her original beautiful Chinese brush art along with a signed copy of SILVER PHOENIX. Or if you'd prefer, you could choose a $100 gift card to a book store of your choice along with a signed copy of SILVER PHOENIX. Follow this link to see the options available to enter her contest.

Sadly my copy of SILVER PHOENIX has not arrived. Barnes & Noble reserved a copy but did not actually order the book for me. That has been rectified as of this afternoon. I have about four to five business days before I get to lose myself in Ai Ling's story. I can't wait.

Zombie Chicken Award

I have received the always glamorous Zombie Chicken Award from Vixen's Daily Reads.

Now for the explanation of this prestigious Zombie Chicken Award which means:"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all..."So to avoid the wrath of the Zombie Chickens I do award this accolade to the following bloggers :

Remy Chandler is Back!

I'm so excited. I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday to request they reserve a a copy of Thomas Sniegoski's Dancing on the Head of a Pin. It's scheduled release date is April 7th but B&N already had it on the shelf. I grabbed a copy and made my way home with it. Okay, I stopped at the cash register first and paid for it. Then I ran home and coveted my new find.

Book Journal - March

Here is my reading list for March.

Marked - P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, TPB
Betrayed - P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, TPB
Chosen - P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, TPB
Untamed - P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, TPB

I've really enjoyed this series. The characters are enjoyable to get to know. I must admit I'd love to get to know some of the teachers at the school a bit more. However, I do recognize this is a YA series so I get why that might not happen. Since there at least two more books in the series I look forward to seeing what happens.

Mean Streats - Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, Kat Richardson and Thomas E. Sniegoski, TPB

So far I've only read the novellas by Richardson and Sniegoslki. Both stories are fandamntastic. Butcher and Green will be my April reads. I know I won't be disappointed.
