  1. Bahahahahaha your pronunciation of Chopin I am dying of laughter xD NO JUDGMENT.

    OMG THAT COVER IT IS FRIGHTENING MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! That is so creepy. I can’t even. I don’t get why they would send you that o_o Audio picture books? EXPLAIN. EXPLAAAAAAAAINNNNN.

    Love that cover for The Strange & Beautiful. I’m lazy. That title is too long.

    πŸ˜€ You’re welcome. Your ranting about Earth Girl amuses me. xD But I want to read it anyway. Wheeeeeeeeeeee.

    • Seriously, I do not know how to say that name. Everything I learned was from It Takes Two, and that was about the composer.

      IS IT NOT THE WORST? WHYYYY? Picture books. On audio. It’s a thing. I was sent Pinkalicious and Fancy Nancy. THEY KNOW ME SO WELL.

      That title is too long. I love it, but like whoa.

      Everyone should read it anywayyyyy, even though I suck at making books sound good.

  2. YAAAAAAAAAY, you’re back.

    Choppin’ indeed.

    I do not like the cover of Flo & Wendell. Get it away from me. I am also upset, so you’re not alone. And no, I wouldn’t even take that off your hands if I lived next door.

    I looooove that cover of Earth Girl. It’s so pretty *___*

    A SLASH SHIP?! I had no idea. I will be buying Vicious. I hope that the ship sets sail for you. *dances*

    *sighs* Ava Lavender has an absolutely gorgeous cover (β•₯﹏β•₯)

    I just finished reading Vicious today and I’m still reeling from its awesomeness. It’s been a while since I’ve had my feels pulled all over the place, hehe. Are you going to write a review? I’d love to hear your thoughts πŸ™‚

    • Christina Franke says:

      Hahaha, it does, indeed. I hope the contents are pretty like that!

      Oooh, that’s good to hear about Vicious. I’m definitely planning to read it and I’ll review it when I do, but that probably won’t be soon. Who knows, though. I’m hoping to fit in more reading of books I’ve chosen soon, but we’ll see if that happens.

  5. You got some really good books. I’m going to order Vicious soon because my bookstore never has the books that I want. Rags and Bones sounds really good. The Ava Lavender book came in such pretty packaging.

    I was just looking at comments and have no idea where you said Chopin (I’m at work), but I remember my English teachers always saying “Show-pen.” I’m not sure if it’s right, but alas and alack, that’s how I say it, too πŸ™‚

    I really love the cover of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender (and yes, I definitely had to scroll back up to make sure I got the title right. haha)

    • Christina Franke says:

      Show-pen. Huh. I would not have guessed that. I said it like the composers Chopin. Which I think is like Show-pan. Lol.

      I love that cover and the title, though I try not to actually say or type said title.

    RAGS AND BOOOOONES!! *grabby hands* Big bummer about not having the original cover. BUT OMG. ALL THE STORIES INSIIIIDE

    CHOPPIN’ LOLOLOLOL πŸ˜€

    HAHAHAHA William Wegman is actually super duper famous and my parents HAVE a William Wegman photograph but OMFG IS THAT CREEPY

    Ooooo, pretty! I love the cover of Ava Lavender. It looks intriiiiguing.

    I’m curious about Earth Girl. But NOT the US cover. No, noooo.

    VICIOUS YES. I thought it was so good. Boo, you crazy, The Archived was great. *scuttles over to Reader’s Choice*

    Rags & Bones sounds really awesome but I’m not cool with all of those authors so… may have to pick it up from the library and skim the ones I’m interested in.
    Holy crap that cover is beyond hilarious. And scary. Scary and hilarious. Wow. Yeah unsolicited arcs can be fun. That one does not appear to fall into that category.
    The Strange and Beautiful has a gorgeous cover but I haven’t heard anything about that either.

  10. You pronounced my name correctly :). Question is, will I do the same for you??!?

    That is a creepy picture book o.o. That reminds me of those Terminex commercials where there’s that giant talking cockroach, except this time it’s just dog heads on little kids. That commercial – *shudders*

    Earth Girl is so pretty! And now I know (kind of) where your wishlist is :P, I could later get you something from there.

    Enjoy Vicious! It’s nice that she told you she enjoys your blog :). I haven’t met many authors nor told many I am a book blogger, so I’ve not an experience as nice as that.

  11. I’m dying to read Vicious and I’m definitely excited for Rags and Bones. Flo & Wendell’s cover is terrifying. I don’t understand that at all. Hope you’re having a splendid weekend!

    You want: Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman. Just thought you could use a reminder. Now spend that money.

    It really took a while before I realised you weren’t referring to an actual boat when you were talking about “the gay ship”. Your brain isn’t the only one that disappears by the end of the week, it seems.

    Anyhow, I hope you enjoy all the books, but I’m most curious about Vicious and Ava Lavender (shortened because long title + lazy Ellis)!

  13. I actually like the cover with the swan better. Though I do like the new cover too.

    show-pin. That is how you say Chopin. πŸ˜€

    LOL @ dogs in costumes. I want nothing to do with that. People that dress up their dogs have more issues than I do.

    You are right, I really do like typing in this font.

    NEVERRRRR having kids either. It would be mental torture to keep getting picture books!

    I love the cover of the Ava Lavender book. I just don’t think I would like the topic. Which is a shame because that is gorgeous.

    Battles in a school? Sci fi? Have you read Insignia yet? Sounds a lot like that. Interesting. I will have to try this one.
