For review:
Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
Rotters by Daniel Kraus
Faerie Winter by Janni Lee Simner
Flip by Martyn Bedford
Pretty Bad Things by C. J. Skuse - I've heard wonderful things about this UK import.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray - !!!!!
The Rites and Wrongs of Janice Wills by Joanna Pearson
Unfriended: A Top 8 Novel by Katie Finn

Thank you, Random House and Scholastic!

From Around the World Tours:
Possession by Elana Johnson

The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett - This is a leisurely paced Regency-esque fantasy, so it's right up my alley. Not bad so far.
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers - my review here!
The Door in the Hedge by Robin McKinley
Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy - Bought after reading Angie's enthusiastic review.

So I went to another Borders closing sale... haha.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Shadowbridge by Gregory Frost - This is by my creative writing professor.


  1. I am so excited to see what you think of Rotters. The author said the cover was gorgeous. I did a recent Cover Crazy post about it. So many other great reads. Looking forward to your reviews. Enjoy your haul.

  2. I'm not gonna lie, I am TOTALLY jealous of Beauty Queens.

    You've got your hands full with some awesome books :-)

  3. Oh lucky you to have Greg Frost as a professor! I worked as the assistant to the director at a Clarion workshop where he taught, and the students loved him.

  4. Beauty Queens! can't wait to read your review etc. :]

  5. Omg, Beauty Queens!! =D Looking forward to your review on that one!

  6. OMMGG your creative writing prof is Greg Frost!?! That's amazing! I read Shadowbridge a few months ago (back in February) and really enjoyed it. :) Can't wait to read the sequel (which you'll want right away; Shadowbridge ends on a major cliffhanger.)

  7. Song of Scarabaeus is SO GOOD!!! Just do yourself a favor and go out and buy Children of Scarabaeus so you can read it as soon as you finish Song. :)

  8. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of all these, especially Pretty Bad Things (loved it) and Beauty Queens (sounds ace).


  9. I received Beauty Queens last week too! I'm really excited to start reading it :D

    Fall for Anything is another book I want to read. I haven't heard of a few of these, but I'm going to look them up!

  10. OOOH Beauty Queens! I'm jealous!! Such good books you got this week!

  11. Beauty Queens, I'm jealous!

    Hope you enjoy ATU! It reminded me a bit of Inside Out/Outside In, but only b/c of the space dystopian aspect, lol!

  12. Beauty Queens showed up on my doorstep this week too. It will be my first Libba Bray read.
