What a loooong week! I always hate the first full week back after vacation. :( But these goodies put a big smile on my face!
Prodigy by Marie Lu - I really enjoyed Lu's debut novel Legend last year and have been eagerly anticipating the sequel ever since. Huge thanks to Jen over at YA Romantics for sending me her extra ARC!!! I've already started it and it is SOOO good.
The Essence by Kimberly Derting - The Pledge was another great dystopian novel I read last year that really surprised me with its originality. I can't wait to get back to Charlie and Max and see what's next for this world.
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay - Okay, I was going to pass on this one simply because I have more than enough to read already, but I keep seeing rave reviews from friends, and then Autumn posted this Swoon Thursday at The Autumn Review, and I was a goner. I must meet Josh pronto!
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett - Loved the idea of maras in the Soul Screamers series and I can't wait to see this new take on it. Plus, I'm a stop on the blog tour in February!
Dare You To by Katie McGarry - I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Pushing the Limits last year, and I fell in love with McGarry's writing and her characters. I can't wait to read more about Beth, who was a minor character in the first book.
The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe - Love historical fiction. Not big on the idea that we already know that there's a potential love triangle going into this thing, but hopefully it's well-done and doesn't make me want to pull my hair out. ;0)
And I got some Across the Universe swag from the super cool Beth Revis!
Big, big thanks to Jen @ YA Romantics, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Atria, Macmillan/Tor, HarlequinTeen UK, Random House, Beth Revis & Netgalley for these awesome, awesome books and swag!!!
Wow. I actually managed not to purchase a single book this week! But those gift cards are burning holes in my pocketbook, so don't expect that to last long. Lol. :D
