I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
This was an interesting week. I got a book that I have long been anticipating and two others that I just found out about. I also got a book that is going directly to the HS because I thought my student-athletes would be interested in it.
Crave by Melinda Metz was a book that snuck under my radar. I hadn't heard much about it until lately. I thought both the cover and the blurb were fascinating.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff is a 2010 YA Debut Author book. This one is one that I have wanted since I first heard about it. Though I will have to admit that I don't like this cover very much. I saw a cover on someone's blog that I really preferred but I don't know if this was for the UK edition or someone's create-a-cover entry.
Playing Time: What Kids Really Think About Kids' Sports by Quinn Cotter is by a teenager who is also a student-athlete. I read about this one in Shelf Awareness and thought that I would have an audience for this book in my HS Media Center. I'm passing it along right away because I have never been a student-athlete and don't usually read nonfiction.
The final book that landed in my mailbox was Awakened by Ednah Walters. I have seen some good reviews, love the cover, and added it to my never ending TBR stack.
What did you get this week?
