The Beehive Book News #8: The Noisy Bird Edition

Hello there! I'm so happy to have been able to do a vlog for this week!
It's been a crazy busy week for us and I didn't have much time for my blog this week :(
BUT, it's great to be able to hop on and end the week on a good note!
AND, I am SO very sorry for the noisy background! My kiddos were being camera shy this time, lol, you'll see them hiding about in the background! and my silly little parrot was in one of his silly moods and was squawking up a storm! It always amazes me on how such little things can make the loudest sounds, lol!

I am super excited for next week! My blog is all caught up now and I have a lot of reviews to share!
PLUS, a super exciting signing is happening on Wednesday!!! Can't wait to go and then hop on here and share it all with you - later on in the week :)

  1. Wow great haul! I really want Rapture, and Princess Academy is so good. I read it a long time ago and loved it. Check out the author's YA books because they're really good too. :)

  2. Legend was one of my favorite books and it's definitely a 5-star book to me :) I hope you enjoy it! :) And I'm sorry you're reviews did't publish! :( And it's so cool that you're sharing your manga sampler! :) I would, but I haven't read manga EVER, but I hope you enjoy that, and Cold Fury and Witches of East End look awesome, so I hope when you read them, I hope you enjoy it!

    And one last thing: You live in New York? (Saw your profile) I live right near NYC and I couldn't go to BEA because I was too young, so it was taunting me all week LOL :(
