These are the books I received last week:
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead – Yay!
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund – Just started this one and I’m liking it.
Betrayal by Gregg Olsen -Book two in the Empty Coffin series (Book #1 Envy)
Dualed by Elsie Chapman – A dystopian that sounds really interesting – in the future everyone has a twin and before your twentieth birthday you have to fight your twin and only one can survive.
Manicpixiedreamgirl by Tom Leveen – How cute is that title? I was very impressed with Leveen’s Zero and look forward to checking his next book out.
Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony, Rodrigo Corral – This is a large format scrapbook type book about the disappearance of a young musician named Glory.
Thumped by Megan McCafferty – The conclusion to last year’s Bumped.
Awkward by Marni Bates – The synopsis reminds me of Audrey, Wait! It’s about an awkward girl who becomes a reluctant YouTube sensation. Sounds like a fun read.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols – I’ve been wanting to catch up on all of Echols’ books so I was glad to find one at the library.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – Audiobook – This audiobook is read by Jim Dale and I hear he does an amazing job.
Bossypants by Tina Fey – Playaway audiobook – I’m listening to this now and it’s very entertaining.
Sync YA free audiobook download of the week:
The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch – Audiobook read by Dan Bittner. Suzanne Collins blurbed this one – not too shabby.
Have a great week!
