Week in Review: The Highly-Anticipated Edition

Week in Review

The Highly-Anticipated Edition!

A couple of books I've been coveting are now in my greedy paws, from books I've wanted since the publishing deal was announced such as FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Peterfreund to hot new fall titles like FATHOMLESS by Jackson Pearce! 

PLUS!!!  I finally got to announce this year's Splash into Summer, which I've been looking forward to for months now!!

 ARCS & Finished Copies:

*FATHOMLESS by Jackson Pearce [Out Sept. 04, 2012]
{Thank you to Little, Brown for the review copy!  This is a companion novel to both SISTERS RED and SWEETLY, and it has to do with mermaids, so of course I've been coveting it!  I'm excited to feature this one during Splash into Summer!}

*THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF CHARLOTTE BRONTË by Laura Joh Rowland, perfume, and fun swag! [Out now]
{Thank you to Bookie Brunch host Phanee at Funny Wool and sponsor Sasha Soren (Author of RANDOM MAGIC) for the giveaway!}

*THE SHADOW OF THE BEAR: A Fairy Tale Retold by Regina Doman--autographed! & with swag!-- [Out now]
{Thank you to Ashley from Basically Amazing Books and author Regina Doman for the awesome Fairy Tale Fortnight giveaway prize!  I'm excited to read this one! }


*RAIN VILLAGE by Carolyn Turgeon
{Carolyn was signing near me, so I finally got to meet her!  RAIN VILLAGE is the only book I  haven't read by her yet.  I've reviewed MERMAID, GODMOTHER, and THE NEXT FULL MOON, and Carolyn has also done a Splash into Summer guest post and a Fairy Tale Fortnight interview!  Expect to see her again during this year's Splashtastic event!  Love her! ♥  And now I have all four of her books signed, bwahaha! }

{Did I pre-order this MONTHS ago?  You'd better believe it!  I've wanted this book since the moment the publishing deal was made public.  The gorgeous cover just added icing to the cake and made me want this even more, if that's possible!  Diana Peterfreund has also written the killer unicorn novels RAMPANT and ASCENDANT.}

*TIMPIECE by Myra McEntire
{Sequel to last year's HOURGLASS.  I love these covers so much, ahh!}

*SURRENDER by Elana Johnson
{The sequel to last year's POSSESSION!  I loved POSSESSION, though due to various reasons, my review fell through.  I'll be rectifying this soon!}

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Awesome haul. I actually got to meet Diana Peterfreund two weeks ago. She was reading at Lady Jane's Salon. You must go to BEA next year. Nice haul. Come visit me as well.


  2. I still have to read Hourglass before I get Timepiece and I love For Darkness Shows the Stars and I'm super jealous you got it! I hope you enjoy and I love those optical illusion covers!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  3. Great set! I'm hoping to get Off Balance from the library soon. It sounds fascinating.
