Do you have to reserve a ticket for the book signings or is it a "come-one-come-all" sort of thing?

God, I hope he comes to Denver this time around. I know the perfect place he can come for his signing too...not yours typical Barnes and Noble, but a local chain of bookstores that are exclusive to the state called "The Tattered Cover".

I just love bookstores. The smell of coffee and the "fresh book smell". I like the smell of the pages. (creepy, I know). I swear, libraries, bookstores and movie theaters (video stores no longer seem to exist) are my homes away from home.

OMG, I want this book now.

That was so exciting and brilliantly written. But now I want more.

I can understand barely felt her injuries without him having to write about a rush of adrenaline.

I knew that was what he meant.

Just from reading this excerpt, I can already see improvement. His sentences have smoother transitions and flow much better. Not to mention, if this is the beginning of the book, it immediately grabs my attention, which is one thing I've always loved from books. He's already got me hooked, so if he can keep it that way for the first few chapters, then I deem it a success. Smile not gonna lie that it took me a while to get into the first one. It took me about 10 chapters.

You can totally see the improvement. I didn't like the prologue in the first book, but this was in gripping. Also a Heather said, he dropped the 'said'. But I am really curious about this book. It already sounds exciting.

Good Reads have put out there top 30 hot books for this summer to read.

Chris's book is at number one.

Some highlights from our list of 30 hot books for summer:



1. Chris Colfer’s second book in The Land of Stories fantasy trilogy is about twins who fall into a world of fairy tales. The first book in the series is a No. 1 New York Times bestselling novel. (Photo by Maarten de Boer/SAGF/Contour by Getty Images.)

2. Sarah Dessen, the popular author of teen novels takes on the issue of the high cost of higher education in her newest book The Moon and More. (Photo by KPO.)

3. Aisha Tyler, the comedian and host of the CW summer show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, confesses her “epic fails,” like the “time I vowed to stop drunk Tweeting” in her book Self-inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation. (Photo by Ben Gabbe, Getty.)

4. Miranda Priestly, the terrifying magazine editor, is back in the sequel to the hit 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada, titled Revenge Wears Prada. (Photo by Mike Cohen.)

5. Jonathan Alter’s The Center Holds offers a behind-the-scenes analysis of how President Obama beat Mitt Romney in 2012. (Photo by Kristopher Long.)

6. TransAtlantic is an Irish-American history novel that covers the Irish famine to President Obama’s 2011 visit to Ireland. McCann’s last novel, Let the Great World Spin, won the National Book Award. (Photo by Dustin Aksland for The Wall Street Journal.)

7. In The Tao of Martha, Jen Lancaster, the humor writer (Pretty in Plaid) spends a year living the “Martha Stewart” way — and then shares whether or not that was a good thing. (Photo by Deborah Feingold.)

8. In Joyland, Stephen King fans will be familiar with the enticing premise: a nostalgic murder mystery/ghost story set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973. (Photo by Shane Leonard.)

9. Author Michael Streissguth offers a look at how the “outlaw” music of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson shook up Nashville in the late ’60s and ’70s in Outlaw: Waylon, Willie, Kris, And the Renegades of Nashville. (Photo by Leslie Bailey.)

10. Guns are one of the hottest issues now. Find out how U.S. history has been shaped by guns in American Gun: A History of the U.S. in Ten Firearms, written by a former Navy SEAL, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. (Photo by AP/The Fort Worth Star Telegram/Paul Moseley.)

I've started to like GoodReads more and more. I like their layout and functionality and their editorial staff liking LoS is like a bonus.

With that image of the burning spinning wheel and the title of that chapter sounds really dramatic.

My copy was ordered last week from an online store here, where my friend who is a member got 30% off the cost.

I should get it a week later after the book is released. neutre
