I am not ready for it to be October (except I am ready for the cooler weather).

There are a couple of authors who are stopping in for signings close to me that I'll be getting to see that I'm super excited about, particularly Kasie West and Leigh Bardugo. Kasie is one of my very favorite YA authors and this will be the second time I'll be seeing Leigh and she always does such an amazing job!
I also have to just fan out a little over a conference phone interview with Margaret Stohl and seven other bloggers this past Friday. It was so fun! I tried not to gush because I love Marvel and I love her Black Widow YA series, but everyone else was (I know, lame excuse) and so I just joined in. I'm curious about seeing the transcript, which I'll be spotlighting next week along with Red Vengeance. Honestly, it was such a treat to be invited and get to do it and get to be among other bloggers who I followed way before I ever blogged myself and who are much bigger than me. Anyway, look for that post next week!
Now, for this week, there is quite a mix of books. Here's what to expect:
