Happy Saturday everyone! I know that I'm going to be spending some time looking over everyone's BEA book haul posts ... so I thought I'd share one of my own! Here's what's new on my shelves ...
As I mentioned in my May Series Spotlight, I have a feeling that City of Heavenly Fire is going to sit on my shelves for a bit. I'm not super excited to dive into it just yet (maybe after I watch the first movie, which is sitting on my PVR) and I just can't believe how HUGE this book is!
I'm getting soooooo excited for a summer filled with yummy contemporaries, so I needed to pick up Morgan Matson's latest because she exemplifies summer. I've been hearing good things about Open Road Summer, so I hope it lives up to the hype!
I requested One Plus One MONTHS ago on Edelweiss, but my request is STILL pending. I saw it pop up on Netgalley and requested it on a whim, only to receive my approval e-mail the very next day! I'm almost finished it and it lives up to my expectations of Moyes' work. She's a storytelling genius. I'm super excited to follow this up with Silver Bay, which appears to be a North American release of a backlist title?!?
I'm trying to be really selective about the review copies that I download and, as I posted about a while ago, I'm trying to jump into reading an ARC immediately after I download it, while the excitement is still fresh, regardless of the release date. Well, it's not working so well with Snow Like Ashes. The premise sounded intriguing, but I'm a little frustrated with this one so far -- anyone read it yet? Does it get better? I'm stuck at the 40% mark and unsure if I should read on.
Meanwhile, I'm super excited to jump into Falling Into Place, because I've already heard some positive buzz around the blogosphere!
I really enjoyed Ask Again Later earlier this year when I needed just the right dose of fluff, so I'm hoping for more of the same in Top Ten Clues You're Clueless. And these covers = SO CUTE.
And finally, I took a chance on a completely unknown book because the comparison to Sarah Dessen and the cute cover lured me in. I haven't downloaded an e-galley on a complete whim before, so wish me luck!
