E-Books for Review:

That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard from Scholastic Point – Looks cute- it’s about a girl living in NYC who sets off to find her mom who she last heard was in a traveling circus in Florida.

Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein from Delacorte – This one sounds like an intense thriller! It’s about a girl who’s out for revenge on the boy who hurt her cousin.

Down to You and The Wild Ones by M. Leighton from Berkley – Reading The Wild Ones for an upcoming blog tour.  Both books were self-pubbed success, and now The Wild Ones release is revised with additional content.

Picture Perfect by Alessandra Thomas from InkSlinger PR – A model has a terrible accident, and goes from a size 2 to a size 12 during her recovery. Her body image has tanked and her therapist suggests nude modeling for a drawing class to face her fears, where she meets a guy who makes her feel confident again. I like that this book tackles body image issues, and I’m interested to see how it plays out.

Purchased:

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz – A Printz Honor book I picked up for my daughter and I to read.

Star Crossed by Jennifer Echols – I wish I could read this, the J. Lynn, and the Glines book all at the same time. Decisions, decisions!

Wait for You by J. Lynn

Never Too Far by Abbi Glines

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (Audiobook) – I’m listening to this now, and it’s an awesome audiobook.

Library & used book purchases:

Mailbox Monday 39

I scored at the thrift store and purchased all 6 books for $5 total. Do you also notice that all the library holds come in at the same time?

Happy reading!

    I see several books on your list that I’d like to read – That Time I Joined the Circus and Eleanor and Park both look excellent!

    LOL. I love when all my library books come in at the same time. It’s like Christmas and my birthday all rolled up into one. Of course, then I have to decide what to read next, which isn’t always easy. But it’s still fun.

    I’ve read Wait for You. It’s good!

    That Time I Joined the Circus looks pretty fun. Just read your fab review of Eleanor and Park. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of that one! :) The Diviners is soooooo huge. Big scary books. haha. Great haul, Lucy! :)

    Yes about library holds! Mine do the same thing. It makes it very difficult to ever get caught up!

    And I have That Time I Joined the Circus and am really looking forward to reading it!
