Week in Review: The "I Love E-Books" Edition

T h e  I  L o v e  E - B o o k s  E d i t i o n !

My nook is so happy with me this week! For once, it got all the attention, not print books!

Thank you to all of the amazing publishers who have worked with me to share their upcoming releases for me to review for you!

...Especially Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  I am drooling ALL OVER my nook and mourning the fact that I'm on a Book Reading Ban for NaNoWriMo, because I want to read everything right this second!  You are a siren in disguise, I swear...!


*Epic 6-book and loot autographed giveaway from the FIERCE READS Tour!!!

I meant to!  I just didn't have enough time on the days I could! *hangs head*

Physical ARCs/Finished Copies for Review:
*THE ONE I LEFT BEHIND by Jennifer McMahon
[Out Jan. 02, 2013]
{Thank you to HarperCollins/William Morrow! I've been wanting to read this author for a long time.  This is the latest in a list of titles I want to read by her!  Maybe someday I'll get to DISMANTLED, PROMISE NOT TO TELL, and DON'T BREATHE A WORD...I hope!}
Purchased Books:

*THE LOST GATE by Orson Scott Card
{I've wanted to read this for a couple of years now, and I couldn't resist buying it when I found it in the Last Chance Remainders Bin! Great Deal!}

*LUKA AND THE FIRE OF LIFE by Salman Rushdie
{I've heard that this author is amazing, plus, he's won several major writing awards.  This book has to do with mythology, so of course, I again couldn't resist buying it when I found it in the Last Chance Remainders Bin! Great Deal!}
E-ARCs for Review:

*PIVOT POINT by Kasie West
[Out Feb. 12, 2013]
{Thank you to HarperTeen and Edelweiss!  I remember being intrigued by this one the moment I saw its gorgeous cover!  It looks great!}

*TAKEN by Erin Bowman
[Out April 16, 2013]
{Thank you to HarperTeen and Edelweiss!  Again, I remember reading about how the cover design was constructed and being intrigued, so my eyes have been on this one ever since!}

*DESTINY, REWRITTEN by Kathryn Fitzmaurice
[Out March 1, 2013]
{Thank you to HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen and Edelweiss!  This is one already being recommended for April is Poetry month!  I  have to wonder if the cover designer also did KAT, INCORRIGIBLE by Stephanie Burgis, because this cover has the same whimsy. I love books about books, and this one sounds sweet!}

[Out June 11, 2013]
{Thank you to Macmillan/Henry Holt and Edelweiss!  I've read both of April Henry's other teen novels, GIRL, STOLEN and THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED [review here], and this sounds like another edge-of-your-seat mystery from her!}

*BUBBLE WORLD by Carol Snow
[Out July 30, 2013]
{Thank you to Macmillan/Henry Holt and Edelweiss!  This one sounds like it could go either way, but I've liked several Henry Holt imprint titles before, so I'm willing to give this one a try, too!}

[Out May 14, 2013]
{Thank you to Random House/Delacorte and Edelweiss!  This is about gargoyles and for fans of Libba Bray, so why not give it a try?}

*DUALED by Elsie Chapman
[Out Feb. 26, 2013]
{Thank you to Random House and Edelweiss! I've seen this one around, but it wasn't until the author came up on a Twitter conversation the other day that I really started paying attention!}

*PANTOMINE by Hannah Harrington
[Out Feb. 5, 2013]
{Thank you to Angry Robot and Netgalley! This one was from last week, oops!  The cover and summary intrigue me, so I'm excited to check this out!}

*POSION by Bridget Zinn
[Out March 12, 2013]
{Thank you to Disney Hyperion and Netgalley! I have wanted this one for months and months and MONTHS.  Seriously, since it was a small publishing deal write-up.  I WANT THIS SO MUCH.  I kind of freaked out a little when I saw it on Netgalley...okay, maybe a lot.  I think this is the book that I am the MOST excited about this week.  Ahhh!}
What did you get in your mailbox this week?
This also posts at Tynga's Stacking the Shelves; check there for more great books each week!


  1. Awesome haul of books. Looks like you had an excellent week. I always love seeing when people get approve for books. Poison looks interesting.


    1. Agreed! It's always nice to see what people pick up! I'm very fortunate to be auto-approved for so much, although it also means I get more than I can read. :( I do try, though!

      POISON sounds so fantastic, eek! <3

  2. Wow, a great haul. I was REALLY excited to get Pantomine on NG for myself. It looks fabulous. I really wanted Poison, too but Disney doesn't allow bloggers to have their books. Are you a librarian? Or how did you get this one, tell me your secrets?!

    1. While I'm not a librarian, it is work-related. I'm actually on auto-approval with many publishers on both Netgalley and Edelweiss because of my job. I'm very fortunate! Check Twittter :)

  3. I hope you enjoy all the awesome books you got this week :)

  4. Ahhh!! I'm so jealous you got Taken, Pivot Point, and POISON!! FREAKING POISON!! I'm dying to read all three of those! I hope you love them. :)

    1. YAY, someone else is as excited about POISON as I am!!!! I FLIPPED OUT when I saw it on Netgalley & d/led it within seconds!!!

  5. Wow so many wonderful books, how are you going to pick which one to read first? :)

    1. I know, right? Usually, it's so hard! This time, at least, it's easy b/c I've wanted POISON for SO long!
