Whatcha Got Wednesday #24 And a general update!

Hello all! It's another edition of Whatcha Got Wednesday, my own little personal meme where I talk about what books I bought or received this week.

Both books I received were for REVIEW:
"Unsavory Delicasies" by Russell Brooks (author of "Pandora's Succession"). Russell stopped by Novel Addiction some months ago as part of his Virtual Blog Tour, and contacted me about a review of his upcoming release, a collection of a few short stories.

"The Advice Girl" by L.A. Shaw. I wasn't going to take this book on considering my crazy huge To Be Reviewed pile.. but she sent along a few sample chapters of her book, and after reading them, I was hooked.
General Update-y-ness!I may have mentioned that my local library has begun a Paranormal Book Club for patrons, and that I am one of the staff discussion leaders. The first meeting of the book club (lead by my friend and coworker Linsey) had a great chat about the book. And tonight is my first time as discussion leader! We are talking about "Truly, Madly" by Heather Webber, and I spent yesterday re-reading the book and refreshing my memory. Of course then I immediately wanted to re-read the rest, but I stopped myself. Barely.

I'll have to let you guys know how it goes - I'm both excited and nervous. Here's hoping the bookclub will be a hit! *Fingers Crossed*

Also, sort of on that note - because I've been working on bookclub stuff, I have no scheduled posts for later today or tomorrow. I'll try and work on that this evening, but no promises.

I have a few giveaways ending tomorrow night at 11:59 PM. Be sure to enter!
Giveaway of an ebook by author Becca Dale!
Giveaway of two copies of "Mine" by Jill Noelle!

Also, be sure to check out Rachel Thompson's (author of "A Walk in the Snark") guest post!
And the guest post by author Justine Eylot!

Happy Reading!
