Bought:

For Review:
Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis--thanks to HarperTeen. 
Social Suicide by Gemma Halliday--thanks to HarperTeen.
Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby--thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury. Already read this one. SUPER. CUTE. 
The Academie by Susanne Dunlap--thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury.
Transcendence by C.J. Omololu--thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury.
Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama--thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan.
Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne--thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan. 
The Raft by S.A. Bodeen--thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan. 

Won:
The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston--thanks to Tor Sweepstakes. Interesting thing about this one is that it's an ARC, with a release of February 2012, even though the hardcover came out January 2011, the paperback January 2012. So confused! It seems like they did an ARC print for the paperback. 
Tempest by Julie Cross--thanks to Tor Sweepstakes. I've actually already read this one, but I'm excited to have a copy even though it's an ARC and I thought I had won a hardcover. :p

Reading This Week:

February 21, 2012 by Disney Hyperion

When the sixteen-year-old runaway Chap is mistaken for a missing boy named Cassiel, his life changes dramatically. Chap takes on Cassiel's identity, gaining the family and friends he's always dreamed of having. But becoming someone else isn't as easy as he hoped--and Chap isn't the only one hiding a secret. As he teeters on the brink of discovery and begins to unravel the mystery behind Cassiel's disappearance, Chap realizes that he's in much deeper danger than he could have imagined. 
After all, you can't just steal a life and expect to get away with it. 


Award-winning author Jenny Valentine delivers an explosive mystery where dark secrets, betrayal, and loss pave the way for one teen's chance at redemption.



Another week of reading a netgalley book before it expires--and this one's release date is this week. This one sounds interesting, so I'm excited to read it, just not sure how it slipped by my radar!

I don't know what I'm going to read next. Maybe Shadow & Bone which is STILL HAUNTING ME. Gah. I can't WAIT! to read this one. But I do have some other February release books to read, so, I should probably be the responsible blogger and read those before a June release.


Also, a question to my regular readers: Do you like my discovered this week posts? I only ask because I thought people liked them, until my hits and comments went down on those posts. I thought it was something to fun to do at the end of the week, but I don't know anymore. I don't know if I'm wasting my time blogging because hardly anybody visits my blog and comments, even though I comment on a ton of blogs. I like blogging, but it's painful when you start to think all your time is being wasted. So I'm curious; do you like the discovered this week posts, or should I get rid of them?
