Guess who was too lazy to film a vlog again this week? Why, Ginger, of course! That dog. She's just incorrigible.
Books received for review this week:
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley (Thanks, Harlequin!)
Ahhhhhh! So excited for this! It's a f/f romance set during segregation in the South between a white girl and a black girl, and I've been excited for this long before it even had a cover! When i saw it was on Edelweiss, I just had to grab it. One of my most anticipated titles of the fall by far.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I saw this gorgeous edition on Amazon and simply had to have it, since my childhood version is somewhere in stoage and it was just a trade paperback. But this.This is glorious and I accidentally started rereading it instead of reading review books. But how was I supposed to stop? Gilbert showed up! He's one of the literary loves of my life, after all.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
I loved this book as an e-galley so much that I just had to buy a finished copy. And it's soooo pretty. The cover is smooth and the font is raised and glossy. So pretty.

On Sunday, I talked about how I judge books by their covers, for right and for wrong
On Monday, I reviewed The Last Best Kiss by Claire LaZebnik
On Tuesday, I listed the top ten characters in need of an intervention letter
On Wednesday, I reviewed Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
On Friday, I talked about my favorite kiss scenes and what makes them so great
Last Sunday was Easter Sunday, and while I don't celebrate Easter exactly, I do celebrate chocolate and candy and eggs, so of course I had to make some chocolate eggs for myself! I made peanut butter-filled chocolate eggs, and then I painted my large chocolate eggs Pride and Prejudice-themed.
Last week's Weecap:
On Monday, I reviewed The Guard by Kiera Cass
I also made some Percy Jackson-themed cupcakes
On Tuesday, I made my wallet cry by listing all the bookish things I want--no, need--to own.

On Thursday, I talked about my love for The Immortals series by Tamora Pierce
On Friday, I reviewed To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
And now some Ginger pics:
My dog loves nothing more than to lie in a patch of sun.
Good thing she's got sunglasses!
