Links Roundup 11/7/2009

... *coughs* Er, yeah, let's all pretend today is still Friday so I can post those Links Roundup? 8D

Book Reviews
Exposure by Mal Peet - Othello gone South American
Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally) by Lisa Yee - MG Novel with POC cast and seems to portray interesting gender relations. Looks cute.
Confetti Girl by Diana Lopez - Socks! Girls! ♥
His Wicked Promise by Samantha James - Reviews trashy novels so that we don't have to read them! =D

Other Non-Review Book Blog Posts of Interest (via Reading in Color)
Seg-Book-Gation: A Letter to Book Lovers
A Gay Fantasy Bookshelf

Also, I'm doing NaNoWriMo. I'm not sure if anyone would be interested in me regularly doing a group link at the end of the week on my NaNoWriMo thoughts on my fandom blog, but you can see my posts here

X-Post of Relevant Stuff
Recounting the Westerfeld/Clare/Black Author Tour @ the TO - In which I give a brief recount of my experience of seeing these authors at their book tour in Toronto.
Fish gotta swim, Haters gotta hate - In which I bash books I didn't enjoy. Please don't kill me if you like the books I hated

Two books that people love, that just don't do it for me are

Wake by McCann and The Forrest of Hands and Teeth by Ryan

I even read Fade the sequel to Wake, still nothing. Actually I liked the second book even else.

!! I remember trying Wake! I couldn't get into it either, personallly. I think the writing style put me off. =/
