    Steelheart sounds really interesting. Going to put it on my TBR list right now. I love things to do with super heroes. Two Boys Kissing also sounds like a really good story. I love David Levithan. I haven’t heard of White Trash Beautiful before. That’s cool that it is getting a larger release. I am def going to see what it’s about.

    Awesome book haul this week, Lucy. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m really excited for Two Boys Kissing! I adore David Levithan’s writing. If this is anything like Will Grayson Will Grayson I’m sure to enjoy it :). Happy Reading Lucy!

  3. I just got Two Boys Kissing yesterday. I’m excited to read it!

    Smoke!!! I’m afraid to find out what happens next.

  5. BermudaOnion says:

    Ooh, I want Two Boys Kissing and Burned – they’re both going on my wish list!

  6. Kelley says:

    What a nice variety of books you’ve received recently! I think I’m most interested in the Brandon Sanderson novel. 😀

    1. Lucy says:

      Thanks, Kelley! I guess this is Sanderson’s first YA. I haven’t read any of his books before.

  7. Quinn says:

    I am really, really excited for Clockwork Princess, but at the same time I am terrified. I know how I want it to end, but I have no idea if that is what Clare has planned. I’m totally stressed :)

    1. Lucy says:

      I’m listening to it now and feeling quite stressed! Taking my time for that very reason. Hope you enjoy it when you take the plunge!

  8. Oo, I’m dying to read the Levithan–and omg, Clockwork Princess! <3 That book broke my heart. Happy reading, Lucy!

    1. Lucy says:

      Thanks! Your review of CP makes me very nervous. Hope my heart can stand it!

    What a variety! I hope you enjoy them!
    Here’s My Post

  10. HOW DO YOU HAVE SMOKE BY ELLEN HOPKINS ALREADY?! I was told that it’s not coming out until September.

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Amanda- Yup, Smoke is out in September. I received a review copy through Edelweiss.

      1. Is it possible for me to do this as well?

    I can’t tell you how much I want to read Steelheart! You better read and report quickly! haha! 😉 But more seriously, great haul again this week. I’ve been intrigued by Two Boys Kissing – it’s especially nice to have them kissing on the cover. We rarely see the kiss on the cover for non-hetero YA novels, I feel. Enjoy your new books! :)
