In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)
Two of my favourite books of the year came out on Tuesday, Shatter Me and The Space Between. These would have to be my top picks for best book of the year that totally cut me open and made me bleed along with the characters. These books are why YA is amazing and is for readers of all ages. :)
*sigh* Suffered from more NaNo burnout this week. Nothing new was written. I think I needed this week, though. It was like a reboot for my brain after writing 35,000 words in 13 days (for me, that's a lot).
It snowed Thursday night. Snow doesn't put me in a good mood. Mostly because when it does snow and stick, a fair number of people don't know how to drive in it. Winter, when it involves snow and leaving the house, is my most hated season. The snow did melt away over the weekend, but I know it's just the tip of the iceberg.
Sorry for the lack of an actual picture. I'd taken one initially, but then I bought more books.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (which I've already read and reviewed so if you say in comments "I hope you enjoy it," I'll know you skimmed and didn't actually read this post. Also, I ordered the hardcover. I couldn't not get the hardcover. I adore this book that much.)
Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Received to review from Penguin Canada:
Immortal City by Scott Speer (Yes, me making this my WoW post book this past week was on purpose. I knew it was coming. And be glad I've saved you from the ARC cover.)
Also, the things in the picture below came this week. :) I hope this makes me more of a nerd. ;) And now that I have a YA Saves shirt of my own, the other one I have will be included in the next giveaway I hold. I'm thinking that giveaway might be a random mix-up of books and ARCs I have no room for. Hmmm.
To review: Incarnate, Born Wicked, A Million Suns, A Touch Morbid, On a Dark Wing, Unraveling Isobel, Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse, The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, and Immortal City. I sort of need to delay reading some of these until January so they count for the debut author challenge. Darn.
One last thing. I really wanted to read and review Juliet Immortal, but it was a library e-book and I wasn't in the mood for e-books so I've returned it and will either borrow or buy it at a later date. Since that means there's a review spot opening, I'll be live-blogging as I read Paper Towns on November 29 (next Monday).
