I know that I have been missing lately. Not posting, and when I do, it's not usually reviews. My "excuse": SCHOOL! I am not going to elaborate to save you from boredom, but
it's going to be pretty hectic until about mid November. Until then, I am promising that I will post 3 to 4 times per week, with at least one of the posts being a review, and one being a set of links to interesting articles, reviews, books etc.
Bear with me for the moment, I will have a 3 month summer break in which some great things will be happening at The Book Slooth, including lots of reviews, bookstore and library features, giveaways, plus - lots more cool stuff that I can't talk about at the moment. They are still in the works, and if I told you, I would have to kill you. (kidding)
But, needless to say, I will be busy this (Australian) summer. P.S. Have you heard? It's supposed to be the hottest summer that we have had in years! I am so excited!
Here are some little tidbits to tide you over until the next post on (most likely) Friday.
1. Rachel Cohn has a new book that is due to come out Mid October. EW's Shelf Life provided an exclusive trailer and preview of "Beta". By the looks of the first page, it is quite exciting.
2. I really must get around to reading The Giver by Lois Lowry.If you have not read it, then only read the first paragraph or two to avoid spoilers. via EW Shelf Life
3. It's Banned Books Week.
4. A quick interview with Shaun Tan
5. I am Super Psyched about the movie translation of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". I have just started reading it and the trailer looks awesome! I find 0:56 and 1:18-1:28 (especially the last four or so seconds [1:24-1:28]), particularly amusing
