I’m at Comic-Con this week and having a blast. The blog migration went pretty well though I’m still figuring out some things. Hope all of you had a great week! Can you believe it’s almost August? Wow!

I was very restrained at SDCC and only left with two books but my digital mailbox was busy.


California by Edan Lepucki – I have the book but the audio is read by one of my favorite narrators Emma Galvin so I couldn’t resist.

Wildflower by Alecia Whitaker – This YA is about a young up and coming country star, and the audiobook is performed by the author.

Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire – This is book one of the Maddox Brothers series, and the audio is performed by Phoebe Strole.

Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover – This is a standalone novella about one of the characters from the Hopeless series. The audio is performed by Jason Carpenter.

Digital review copies:

Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz – Can’t wait to read this one. It’s about a black bisexual ballerina growing up in a small town.

The Prom-Goer’s Interstellar Excursion by Chris McCoy – That title is a mouthful but this sounds fun. It’s about a guy whose prom date gets abducted by aliens!

Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts – This Australian YA is getting a Fall US release. It’s a cancer story described as TFIOS meets Eleanor & Park.

A Matter of Heart by Amy Fellner Dominy – This YA is about an Olympic hopeful swimmer who is diagnosed with a heart condition.

Denton Littles Death Date by Lance Rubin – In this world, everyone knows the day they will die. And Denton Littles death date is the day of his senior prom.

Words and Their Meanings by Kate Bassett – This book deals with grief and love and as the cover suggests some origami is involved.

Blind by Rachel DeWoskin – A fourteen-year-old gets blinded by fireworks and learns to deal with this new challenge.

Wild by Sophie Jordan – I like this NA series- this is the third book in the Ivy Chronicles, and centers on Georgia and Logan.

Arcana by Jessica Leake – This YA is described as a romantic, suspenseful, genre-bending debut set in Edwardian London.

The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent – The first book in a new YA Paranormal series “about a girl who must join forces with rogue exorcists to save her sister and, ultimately, humanity.”

    Eeeep, this is such a great haul! Such great contemporaries too, I’ve been needing to read some recently. And it’s great that the audio version of Wildflower is performed by the author, she knows how it’s supposed to sound 🙂

  3. I can’t believe how organized you are! And two books at Comic Con is pretty amazing. I have a hard time holding myself back in that regard. So cool you got to see the True Blood panel. Hope you guys had a blast!

  5. You have so many good books in your mailbox this week! Audiobooks too. I read Slammed by Colleen Hoover and liked it. You are disciplined to only come away with two books from Comic Con. 😉

    You always have such great selections!
    I am so looking forward to California, for some reason it really intrigues me. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on it!
    Also Not Otherwise Specified sounds different and interesting. I hadn’t heard of it but now I need to know more.
    Happy reading!

    I’ve been known to use an audible credit for a book I’m also reading for review – especially if a favorite narrator is in the mix. Enjoy your new books – they all look fantastic.
