This Week + In My Mailbox

Hey guys!  On Saturdays, I'm going to start doing this every week.  I'm going to post what I posted that week, along with my In My Mailbox post, because my contests run on Sundays now.  If I found anything interesting/have any other book-ish news to share, I'm going to post it on Saturdays as well. :)

Sunday - I posted the new contest for a signed copy of DupliKate by Cherry Cheva.  The contest ends tonight at midnight (eastern time) so make sure you enter if you haven't!

Monday - I posted my review of Gone by Lisa McMann.

Tuesday -  I posted my review of Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison.

Wednesday - My Waiting on Wednesday post was for Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick, the sequel to Hush Hush.

Thursday -  I posted my interview with Stacey Jay, author of You are So Undead to Me, Undead Much, and My So-Called Death.

Friday - I posted my review of Undead Much by Stacey Jay.

What I Read This Week:
1. Tricks by Ellen Hopkins
2. Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis

In My Mailbox:

You've probably noticed that I haven't done an In My Mailbox post in a while... so I'm going to keep this one short while I catch up - there'll be no pictures or summaries, just for this week!

For Review:

  • Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook. (This one came randomly but I've always wanted to read it!)
  • wtf by Peter Lerangis (Another random one, but it sounds like it has a cool premise.)
  • Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu (A debut novel that I've heard only good things about!)
  • The Mark by Jen Nadol (Another debut novel that I've only heard good things about!)
  • Beautiful Dead: Book One - Jonas by Eden Maguire (This one sounds fabulous.)
  • Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt. (Another Tenner novel that sounds fantastic.)

  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. (Can we say EEEEKKKKK?!)
  • Sing Me to Sleep - Angela Morrison (This one sounds just fantastic!)
  • A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend by Emily Horner. (I've wanted to read this one since I heard the summary.)
  • God is in the Pancakes by Robin Epstein. (This sounds like a wonderful debut.)
  • The Outside of a Horse by Ginny Rorby. (I love horses, so I should love this one!)
  • For Keeps by Natasha Friend. (I've always wanted to read one of Friend's books, now I have the chance to. :D)
  • Boys, Bears, and a Series Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald. (This one sounds really funny... I can't wait to read it.)

For One ARC Tours:


  • Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis. (Just finished this one this morning, and it was amazingggg!)
  • Swoon at Your Own Risk by Sydney Salter. (I've read a few pages, and it's cool so far.)
Bought:

  • Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston (I've heard great things about this one.)
  • Going Bovine by Libba Bray.  (I've never read Libba Bray before, but this one was also 60% off at the same Walden Books. It sounds amazing.)
  • Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison (Sounds like a cool one.)
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. (I've never read Scott Westerfeld before either, and this one was also 60% off at the Walden Books so I thought why not?)
  • The Real ACT Prep Guide. (Ehh... not real excited about this one...)
