I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
I got books from a variety of sources this week. I bought these:
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins -- This one got such glowing reviews on such a large number of blogs that I had to buy it. It sounds completely amazing.
Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead has been on my wishlist since I finished Spirit Bound. I pre-ordered it as soon as it became available for pre-order. I am very eager to get a chance to read this conclusion to the Vampire Academy series.
I got these books for review this week:
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers was sent to my by the publisher. It will be the first book I have read by this author. It is the story of a girl's search for answers after her father commits suicide. It sounds really good. I need to do a quick read and review of this one. The book will be published on Dec. 21, 2010.
Wither by Lauren DeStefano is a print copy of a book that I already had the Adobe Digital Edition for. I was glad to get the print version from the publisher because I really don't like to read whole novels from my computer screen. I am eager to read this one because it has gotten glowing endorsements from a number of well-respected young adult authors. The book isn't out until March 22, 2011.
Last, I added a couple of free books to my Kindle.
Jackson Jones, Book 1: The Tale of a Boy, an Elf, and a Very Stinky Fish by Jenn Kelly is a middle grade novel about a young boy who wants to be a hero.
Merlin's Harp by Anne Elliot Crompton is an Arthurian fantasy that has been reissued by Sourcebooks. I thought it sounded interesting enough to download a copy to my Kindle for reading "someday".
That was my week. What interesting things did you get this week?
