Happy Book Day to Four Anticipated Books!



(This will be one of only two scheduled non-Cinderella-themed blog posts this week!)

What new releases are you most excited about this week? For me...


Happy Book Birthday to four amazing books this week:



ABOVE WORLD by Jenn Reese

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this one and I LOVED the book.  I can't wait for my finished copy to arrive in the mail this week.

Daisy Whitney is such a strong new voice in YA contemporary fiction and it devastates me that so many people have overlooked her.  THE MOCKINGBIRDS was one of my favorite books of 2010 (my review).

You don't need to read THE MOCKINGBIRDS to read THE RIVALS, but it will explain a lot of things that are brushed over in the new book!


GRAFFITI MOON by Cath Crowley

Honestly, I don't know overly much about this one.  I kept hearing about it in November on everyone's Just Contemporary posts, though, and what little I heard intrigued me.  I was lucky enough to snag an e-ARC, but unlucky in that I haven't had time to read it yet!

GRAFFITI MOON has had a lot of award buzz around it and I'm really glad that it's finally coming to the US today!  I can't wait to find out more about this book!


THE FINE ART OF TRUTH OR DARE by Melissa Jensen

I've wanted to read this one since hearing that it resembled the love child of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS and the movie PRETTY IN PINK.  I was even more intrigued after finding out that Melissa Jensen is a semi-local author.

I was honored to participate in Melissa Jensen's (still-ongoing) blog tour with The {Teen} Book scene last week.  If you haven't seen my interview with her to whet your appetite, check it out!



SCARLET by A.C. Gaughen

This one had me at "Robin Hood."  Yes, yes, yes please!  Not to mention, I love it when the girl disguises herself as a guy in order to live life (Should I blame Tamora Pierce and her Alanna books during my fundamental years?  I probably should...).

This is another e-ARC I  have to make time for.  I think I'll be spending quality time with my nook very soon.  (I just have to, um...pick up a book.  I haven't read anything in a week!)



Did I miss something amazing that I must know about?  Let me know!
