Hey everyone! I was absent last week due to fighting off some horrible illness that they will probably name after me. I’m fully recovered now, though, so everything is back to normal. The last two weeks were pretty good for me. I made some very important purchases in preparation of BEA, and we’ve got a few things up our sleeves for the blog as well that I can’t wait to tell you all about. Later. Anyway, onto the books! This is what I got over the last two weeks.
Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher
The Selection and The Elite by Kiera Cass (I know, okay? I know. But I couldn’t help it.)
Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
Purchased (With some of my ebook settlement)
Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green

Kara here! I have had kind of a yucky week. Work (editing) is slammed right now so I don’t have a lot of time for blogging or reading. And…I have gotten back into World of Warcraft and it is such a timesuck but it also makes me incredibly happy and helps my anxiety in a major way so it has many benefits to me. Also, I have not been feeling well. Allergies are kicking my ass via headaches and the pollen is brutal here this time of year. Our cars are literally covered in yellow. I am not sleeping well due to back pain. Basically I am a mess but I also am incredibly happy to be alive and thankful for the things I have and I know that these things will pass in time. So whatever. I deal.
On to the books:
I got a really cool package from Macmillan and Leigh Bardugo this week that I am totally in love with.
It’s a teaser of Ruin and Rising in a gorgeous carved box with some scented candles. Uhhh, you guys know how much of a candle hoarder I am. This was like magic in a box. I am calling for suggestions as to what I should store in this box. Maybe bookish swag?
Thank you to Quirk Books for the first two books in the trilogy.
