Another week that has flown by! I swear, I feel like I just wrote last week’s STS post. Between my sick daughter and me being sick this past month, my reading has taken a hit. Thank goodness for audiobooks! Things are looking better now (although I still have that annoying cough that doesn’t go away) so I hope my reading picks up. I got some exciting packages last week that I am very excited for including some cool surprises. They all somehow ended up getting here the same day so it was like Christmas for me!
Disney has the prettiest packages! The Summer of Chills box was such a nice surprise! It came in a cute box with a puzzle and a cool gel eye mask. My daughters quickly took possession of the puzzle and eye mask but they aren’t touching my books.
Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore
-I was so excited for this one and so happy this was one of the books in the mystery box!
Don’t Look Back by JLA
-I got rejected for this one on NetGalley a few months ago so I was excited to get an ARC anyway.
Far From You by Tess Sharpe
-A girl escaping death? Count me in!
Magnolia by Kristi Cook
-This was one of my most anticipated book for 2014, already read it and loved it and itching to read it again!
Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols
-I recently read my first Jennifer Echols book and loved it, excited for this one!
Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
-I had skipped on getting this one on Edelweiss because it sounds so sad…it also sounds really good though.
Rebel by Amy Tintera
-I haven’t had a chance to read Reboot yet but now that I’m working on my 2013 books, it’s one I want to read soon!
Meridian by Josin L. McQuein
-I haven’t read Arclight yet but I did read another book by this author and enjoyed it.
The Ring & the Crown by Melissa De La Cruz
-I love this cover and I was so excited to get a finished copy because the cover is matte and so pretty!
Steadfast by Claudia Gray
-I really liked her Evernight series and I have the first book in this series, need to catch up!
Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
-I had seen this book around but never really stopped to read the summary until now. Man was I missing out! Magic and assassins? Sounds perfect for me!
Audiobooks for Review:
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
-So excited for this audiobook since it’s narrated by Emma Galvin (who also narrates the Divergent books)
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor
-I haven’t heard from this narrator yet but I’m still excited to hear it!
My friend Steph from NoBS Book Reviews is addicted to going to author signings. She was lucky enough to go to the Dark Days event and was super nice and offered to get my books signed. I now have signed books by Tahereh Mafi, Veronica Rossi and Sophie Jordan! Woo-hoo!
That’s it for me! Huge thanks to Disney-Hyperion, Penguin Teen, Harper Teen, Harper Teen Audio, Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books and Steph for my book haul!
