Me on This Week's Book Week (69)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

So, a bunch of awesome books came out on Tuesday, books like Thornhill and Fangirl and Antigoddess. Then came the news that Maggie Stiefvater's doing a standalone companion novel to the Shiver series, Sinner, about Isobel and Cole and that Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl are writing a Beautiful Creatures spin-off series called Dangerous Creatures featuring Link and Ridley. New book Tuesday, indeed. ;)

So I was searching for books to put holds on on my local library website and kept seeing the e-book option for a lot of them. So I went to the library's e-book website and downloaded all the YA. Well, not all the YA. It was more that I was browsing the 'E-books for Teens' section and found a lot of books I'd added to my to read list at some point over the last few years but had never gotten around to borrowing, buying, or reading. And so I went a little crazy. I would've gone crazier if there wasn't an 'only 5 e-books at a time' limit. All of the books would've been mine! *maniacal laugh* Well... some of the books would've been mine... for 3 weeks. ;)

Reviews for the coming week will feature This Song Will Save Your Life (Tuesday) and Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl (Thursday, as part of a blog tour arranged by Penguin Canada). Also, the first DNF/did not finish 'review' of sorts goes up on Monday (it's not a proper review).
Cracked by Eliza Crewe (from Strange Chemistry through NetGalley)
Alienated by Melissa Landers (from Disney Book Group through NetGalley)

Borrowed from the library:
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (e-book)
If I Should Die by Amy Plum (e-book)
Sweet Legacy by Tera Lynn Childs (e-book)
Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (e-book)
Spark and Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer (e-books)


  1. Can't wait for those companion novels to come out, I really loved Beautiful Creatures and Mercy Falls series so it's exciting to know their story doesn't end. *squee* Ooh, I've been Alienated buzzing lots on different sites and it seems interesting. Might give it a try :) hopefully you enjoy them! Happy reading c:

  2. The cover for Alienated looks so pretty! I'm going to have to check that one out! I hope you enjoy all you get :)

    Here's my STS!

  3. Great assortment of books. I love that you can get ebooks at your library. Sweet Legacy and For Darkness Shows the Stars are on my TBR mountain. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  4. Alienated! Jealous! I'm so looking forward to that one. I have a copy of Cracked on the way, so hoping it's good, too. Some great books, enjoy! :)

    Heres my StS
