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.
I'm getting this ready to post quite early this week. I will be attending KidLit Con 2010 this Friday night and all day Saturday and don't know when I'll be getting home Saturday night. My friend said something about going to the casino on the way back!
I received three books this week.
First, is the much anticipated Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. I pre-ordered this one quite a while ago. I am eager to get a chance to read it. I have been eager since I saw the first review and the current crop of reviews has done nothing to change my mind. I am a big fan of werewolf books. It also doesn't hurt that Cremer is from Minnesota. (I like supporting local authors.)
I also won an autographed copy of Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers and it arrived this week. I liked the product description here:
If you had to choose between Heaven and Hell, which would it be?This one sounds like another winner.
Are you sure about that...?
Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance--even her closest friends--and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions--for Hell--and she possesses a unique skill set that has the king of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he's as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn't stand a chance.
Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn't get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.
But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay...for all of them.
The final book I got this week was Vordak the Incomprehensible: How to Grow Up and Rule the World. I couldn't pass up that title. I know I have middle graders at my school who will really enjoy this one. It looks like it will have humor that is right on point for that audience (and I need a break from all the teenage angst and love triangles that I have been reading lately.) This one is described as a comic step-by-step guide to world domination.
Those are the books that appeared in my mailbox. What did you get this week? While you are here don't forget to enter my ARC Giveaway. This contest to clean my shelf of ARCs ends on 10/31.
