I hope everyone had a fabulous New Year! We're into 2014 now and it's a time of new beginnings. Accordingly, I have a slew of new reads lined up and am looking forward to delving into them. Some fantasy, dystopians, and a bunch of other good stuff as well. Check out my new arrivals below.

AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE 

The true origin of Squeee? Probably not, but kinda funny.  

Triumph of the English Major- a neat essay over at the New York Times Sunday Review. Worth a read. 

Want a Hostess Fruit Pie? You might not after seeing this...

    1. Yeah it's kind of an eclectic mix, I'm reading all kinds of different things these days. Mulled Wine should be good.

  4. I haven't had a Hostess fruit pie in donkey's years, but I think I'll skip that link. I have a feeling it's not going to be pretty. lol My kids wanted to see Frozen, but we went with The Hobbit:II instead. Money only goes so far these days. :( I'm liking your book haul. Will need to check them out.

    Happy New Year!

  6. I went to the article for the Hostess food and then ended up watching a 5 mins video of nothing but them making the cakes, lol. I'm blaming it on the fact that I'm hungry and it's 1am. I really want to see Frozen. I had to choose between Frozen, Hobbit, and Catching Fire...so I went the Hobbit.
    I'm going to be reading Between Two Thorns soon. I hope you have a lovely week and enjoy your new books!
