So, while this was kinda a slow mailbox week, I DID end up purchasing a few (read: a lot) of books and am now drowning in books. But! I did cull more from my shelves, so the books I bought have homes on the shelves. In related news: I either need to not buy so many books, or buy another bookcase and find somewhere to put it. O___o
Eon by Alison Goodman from Cecilia. YOU GUYS. Why haven't I read this book before? I basically peeked at the first page when I got it and then before I knew it, I was 100 pages into the book and decided hey, maybe I should commit and read this book. BUT IT IS SO GOOD! So good.
The Selection by Kiera Cass YES, I get that there was a scene with the agent and the author of this one, but I read the sample and wanted to read on. It seems like it could be a good story and I'm willing to give it a shot. Authors fuck up, but if they can tell a good story, I'll still read them.
A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young already reviewed here, but I really wanted a finished copy! Love this series.
The Demon King, The Exiled Queen, The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima I've actually already read this series (CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FOURTH ONE!) but I love it so much I wanted my own copy.
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris Um, yeah, this book sounds like a me book and I have been wanting it for a really long time and FINALLY have it now YAY!
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfruend I've heard a LOT of fantastic things about this one, and April's review sorta sealed the deal for me. Plus I read parts of the first chapter on Amazon and I knew after that I needed the book.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein I've already reviewed it, but you guys, I needed a finished copy of this one. Needed one. It's so soft! I petted it and then flipped to THE page and reread that scene and immediately felt sad and tears welled up. Sniff.
For Review (physical):
Sweet Land of Bigamy by Miah Arnold I hate the title for this one, but it sounds like a pretty good read.
For Review (ebooks):
Mystic City by Theo Lawrence
The Kill Order by James Dashner
Thanks to Random House! <3
THIS WEEK IN REVIEW:
Hee - I did some book blogger problems on Twitter, and then complied them all into this post. I still think they are hilarious. I'm a dork like that though.
Reviews! What happened in Reviewlandia this week? Well, I finished Surrender and didn't like it. At all. I also reviewed Bound by Erica O'Rourke, the last in her trilogy, and finally why I didn't enjoy this one like the rest came to the surface. It does suck when the last book breaks the series for you. But! I did review A Midsummer's Nightmare and freaking LOVED it! <3
Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday! I WOW'd the next book on my ARC-wishlist, which happened to be . . . Survive by Alex Morel. I am super excited for this one.
Friday brought us a new cover interview! Which, guys, I freaking love this author. When I first got on Twitter, she was one of those first people I discovered. At the time she had an agent, but no book deal. Also, it's very surreal for my friends to be getting book deals. It blows my mind. But I am so happy for them! <3 I hope they all sale lots and lots of books.
Also: the author is J.A. Souders, RENEGADE comes out in November from Tor Teen. I kinda went off the road in that above paragraph. It happens.
Short Story Saturday: Reaper by Rachel Vincent. I didn't do one last week because when I realized I hadn't read/reviewed a novella/short story, it was like three minutes to midnight and I was still camped out on my friend's couch watching a movie. But I already said it wasn't going to be an every Saturday thing.
And! I reached 300 followers and threw a giveaway. it ends sometime in July. I think next week Friday? I think? I'm not really sure. But I do know there's still time to enter if you are interested in books? Yeah.
Have a lovely weekend! <3
