Sunday Shout Out (10)


Recently, I introduced a new feature here at In the Hammock on Sundays. It's called "Sunday Shout Out" and it's a place where I can give a special shout out to those publishers and authors who have sent me books over the week, as well as those bloggers who have hosted contests that I've won! I'll also be giving shout outs to any other cool books, blogs or bookish news that I've spotted during the week.

Check out my first Sunday Shout Out post for even more info, here!

What book lover doesn't love the smell of books?? Now Karl Lagerfeld, Wallpaper magazine, and Steidl have created a perfume with that freshly opened book smell! The packaging is even a book!

Heart of Brass looks pretty awesome!
I can't wait for your review of Big Sky Mountain - 'cause I'm not sure about reading it since I wasn't wild about the first book of the series.

Anyway, enjoy your books!

I wonder why Kady Cross wrote under a pen name. Heart of Brass looks like an interesting Steampunk. Thanks for stopping by YA's the Word
