I've been very patient. I waited until after I'd finished round two of edits to order these fabulous books knowing that I wouldn't be able to keep from reading them once they arrived!
Wanna know what they are??!
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I have been waiting and waiting for this book to come out! I tried to find it at BEA but I wasn't fast enough. If you haven't heard about this one check out the book trailer. Go ahead. I'll wait.
SEE!! I told you!
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
If you haven't read Stephanie's first book, Anna and the French Kiss, go read it! Seriously. Go. And then once you're all smiley and in love with Etienne go check out Lola. I can't wait to read it!!
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
I love this series. Mostly I love Patch. It's rare when I love the 2nd book more than the first. I'm hoping the third is my new favorite.
Last week I took a break from editing to venture out to a book signing. And it wasn't just any book signing, it was Laini Taylor reading from Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book back in May. And I know I should have given it away here once I finished it, but I just couldn't part with it. IT'S THAT GOOD!!
Seriously. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It isn't just the story or the characters that capture you, it's the beautiful way she tells a story. I know I've found another book to add to my list of favorites when I have to stop and reread a line just so I can take in the poetic way the author is getting her thoughts across.
I love this book.
And since we're talking books...
Here are some COMING SOON selections I can't wait to read. Look for them in the next few weeks!
How To Save A Life by Sara Zarr
Have you read anything by Sara Zarr? Of course you have. She's amazing.
I can't wait for her latest.
Crossed by Ally Condie
If you've read Matched you'll want to pick this one up. I can't wait to find out what happens next!
Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
This book looks SOOOO scary! I can't wait!
