I'm back! After a whirlwind trip to BEA, I'm back to the blog (and a whole lot of work, ugh). It's going to take me a few days to get back into the swing of things. Plus, this month is going to be mad crazy because my huge 60 page live-or-die paper is due, so don't be surprised if you see a little bit of dead space. But until I get my land legs back, here are some things you can look forward to, coming to you at Sarcasm & Lemons:
1. A short story by Tom Winship called "The Vampire Wedding Planner." Witty and appropriate for adolescents and up, it's a cute little satire on how to plan your perfect bloodbath. I mean, wedding.
2. Reviews of Perfume by Patrick Suskind, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, and Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Which rocked hard.
3. A looking back post for Throne of Glass (which I'm re-reading now) and Crown of Midnight (which I'll be re-reading soon), by Sarah J. Maas. Spoilers: I think I actually like Chaol now. Except I'm still mad at everyone in CoM for being stupid and secretive and not sensitive to everyone else's feelings.
4. A few giveaways of BEA extras. Let's just say I wound up with an extra copy of Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater and an audiobook ARC of Landline by Rainbow Rowell. And more...mwuahahaha.
5. A small dissertation on what I learned at BEA, including pics and recaps from the event as well as "overhead at BEA" and tips for next year's event.
6. Pictures of my BEA haul, because I'm a braggy mcbraggerson and I can't help it. Plus you get to see what's coming up next on the blog, right? Right?
7. Posts, reviews, and events as part of Mental Health month sponsored by Blog of Erised. This is where you get to take advantage of the fact that I'm getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology and know some stuff. I'll also be reading and discussing It's Kind of a Funny Story by the late, lovely Ned Vizzini and Goodbye, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick, best known for Silver Linings Playbook.
So, cheers! I missed you all!
