Do you ever feel like sometimes you waste your time off? Like, I’ve had 5 days in a row off and I could have squeezed in some blogging and gotten caught up on reviews and maybe finished another book, but instead I ended up on the Pinterest and going out of the house for LOTS of things! I feel really bad because this would have been a great time to FINALLY catch up, but I’ve kind of squandered it. ALTHOUGH, on the other hand, I’ve gotten in at least an hour and a half of working out each day, so yay me, health is kind of really important. OH and my Thanksgiving was pretty decent. How was yours? I’d love to hear in the comments.
Falling For You by Lisa Schroeder (Unsolicited) – This contemporary sounds right up my alley in that I actively seek out contemporaries about protagonists who have experienced abuse because it relates to my job and I can always throw a review of one of these books in my work newsletter.
The Murmurings by Cary Ann West (Unsolicited) – The Murmurings is about a teenage girl who begins to hear the voices that drove her sister to suicide. It sounds like creep city. I cannot wait!
The Program by Suzanne Young (Unsolicited) – In this book, suicide is an epidemic and if you cry you end up in the program where they wipe your memories. The concept is so cool, I can’t wait to see how this book plays out.
The Lucky Ones by Anna Godbersen (Unsolicited) – This is the third book in the Bright Young Things series, but alas I have not read any of those books. No worries though, book 1 is on my kindle and rumor has it that it is cracktastic.
The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver (Vine) – I picked this book out because everything I’ve read by Lauren Oliver, I’ve loved so I am hoping I love this book too.
Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool (Audible) – Heidi at Bunbury In The Stacks wrote a great review of the audiobook with a list of the elements within Moon Over Manifest that rock and I like all of those elements so I immediately dropped a credit on this one.
Between by Jessica Warman (Kindle) – This was a daily deal and lol since I had an unread ARC taking up space I was like, $2 is not a lot to pay to regain that space.
Holiday In Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller (Kindle) – CHRISTMAS BOOKS ARE HERE! Also, this was $1.24. HECK YES.
Dangerous Voices by Rae Carson (Kindle) – A short story by Rae Carson? Free? BOOM IMPULSE CLICKED.
Heart Of A Hunter by Lara Adrian (Kindle) – Another freebie, but it’s romantic fantasy and won a Romantic Times award.
In case you skipped it or missed it, here’s a recap of what we’ve posted here last week:
This book has not gotten enough attention, and so I finally set out and review Adios, Nirvana a YA contemporary book about a boy dealing with grief, among other things.
Y’all, I had HIGH hopes for this book, but alas was totally let down by Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes.
In which I am not very overly enthusiastic about Black City by Elizabeth Richards.
AND another middle grade book, that I would love to see more reviews for: The Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons by Barbara Mariconda!
Finally, Allison makes an appearance on WORD For Teens with a guest post called The Stigma Of Mental Health Disorders And YA Books.
