Tower Of Books!

For Review:

The Incorrigible Children Of Ashton Place: The Unseen Guest by Maryrose Wood (accepted review copy for blog tour)
Miles From Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams (unsolicited paperback review copy) – I have the hardcover as well, so expect a giveaway when I read and review Miles From Ordinary
Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler (Vine) – Pumped about this book because it’s contemporary, debut ALSO THERE IS A MAKEOVER INVOLVED.
Neversink by Barry Wolverton (Vine) – You guys, it’s pubbed by Walden Pond Press, so I know that I am in for an AWESOME middle grade read.
Something Like Normal by Trish Dollar (Netgalley) – Totally screamed when I got the approval. Trish is so awesome on twitter. AND Carla has been recommending SLN and I trust Carla implicitly.
Grave Mercy by RL LaFevers (Netgalley) – Please, we ALL got this book and it was a cheer heard round the world as everyone woke up to that Netgalley email and jumped around because HELLO fighting nuns and fantasy? THAT IS THE SHIT.
Awkward by Marni Bates (accepted copy for blog tour) – I read this the other night and LOVED it. Perfect breezy contemporary read. Look for my review and giveaway March 21st!!


The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison (SIGNED)
Liesl And Po by Lauren Oliver (SIGNED)
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (SIGNED)
Making Waves by Tawna Fenske (Kindle, it was 1.79 and Mary at The Book Swarm recommended her)
Shades Of Milk And Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal (Kindle; only $2.99)


Invisible World by Suzanne Weyn (Okay, so every time I go to an Oblong Books signing, they let you browse their galleys and take one home and this one is about the Salem witch trials so it kept calling to me and I could NOT resist)

  1. Pandemonium! I have an ARC but I would love a finished copy. Awesome haul, April! 🙂

  2. Awesome haul this week, lady. Have fun nomming the books.

  3. I want to read The Unseen Guest SO BAD! I loved the first two Incorrigibles books. I’ll probably wait for the audiobook to come out though because Katherine Kellgren is a rock star narrator and she made those books come to life even more than they do on their own.

    I’ve heard Neversink is awesome. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it.

  4. Ooh I’m jealous of your Lauren Oliver signed books! I hope to meet her at a signing soon. Awkward sounds great- I’m always looking for contemporary recs.
    Something Like Normal sounds good too. I’ll have to remember that one.
    Happy reading April!

  5. Wow, you had an awesome week. 🙂 Where it began was a good book, it wasn’t one of my favorites but I am sure you will enjoy it. I am jealous of the signed copies of Liesl and Po and Pandemonium. I still need to pick up a finished copy of Pandemonium soon. ^_^ Hope you enjoy all of the books you got this week, and I appreciate you stopping by my IMM.

  6. Oh is Pandemonium out already? I had no idea! This is what happens when you don’t get much internet time anymore and you stop visiting book shops because you’re SUPPOSED to be on a book buying ban even though you keep sneaking onto the Book Depository … 😉

    These books sounds great. Looking forward to your thoughts!

  7. Hmm, I see some books I’ve never heard of. Will definitely have to check them out – especially the Salem Witch Trials one!

    Thanks for sharing your mailbox this week 🙂 I hope you enjoy all of them!

Puffins are my favorite bird, I love them so freakin much, I cannot wait to hear more about this book. Luckily my library already had it in the catalog as on order, so request is in!

  30. I’ve never heard of The Inncorrigible Children of Ashton Place but it has that look to it like Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. That book was really good so I’m VERY curious on this one 🙂
    Uniquely Moi Books recently posted..Review: Glimmer by Pheobe KitanidisMy Profile

  31. The Incorrigible Children sounds so awesome.

  38. I think you could literally hear all the screaming and jumping from everyone when they got Grave Mercy. I have to admit there was a bit of jumping, and a high-fiving with my four year old over here(not that she knew what it was about) I hope you enjoy all your new books!
    Chandra recently posted..In My Mailbox: Where I Get Witch Eyes!My Profile

  39. I still haven’t read Delirium and I really need to.. everyone raves about it and then I can get to Pandemonium. I am going to check out Invisible World, I am from Massachusetts so the anything Salem related grabs my attention! Great list!
    Cassandra recently posted..In My Mailbox (#1)My Profile

  40. Yup, I guess we all got Grave Mercy.
    I started it but I’m not sure… fighting nuns aside I’m not sure I like Ismae that much. We’ll see.
    Great haul and thanks for stopping by!

  54. Hi April

    Loved your about me with your sunglasses. Sounds like me, working out, a good book and junk food lol. Looks like you picked up some exciting books for review, I look forward to seeing what you think.

    Great books this week. I hope you enjoy them all.
    Thanks for visiting my IMM post this week.

  55. Grave Mercy!!! WANT. BADLY. Well, I did grab it from NG but my newly acquired ereader and I are having words of the not-so-friendly kind. GM sounds so freaking badass.

    Eeee and you got signed Lauren Oliver books?! Lucky! I need to read Liesl and Po soon, since I’ve loved everything else by her. I finished Pandemonium yesterday and LOVED IT. But ashjkdsld, does she KNOW how to end a book without killing us?! *pulls at hair*

    Very eager to read Something Like Normal and The Butterfly Clues too! Enjoy your yummy books 🙂
