Wednesday- I reviewed The Dead-Tossed Waves + The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan, which are both out in stores now!

Thursday- I reviewed Trauma Queen by Barbara Dee and Blowout by Taylor Morris, two middle-grade novels that are out in stores now!

Saturday- I reviewed family by Micol Ostow, which is out in stores now!

So yeah, a review-heavy week, lol. Next week, there'll be stuff aside from reviews, I promise!


  1. Wow, lots of great books this week James, I would love to read all of them!
    I am excited for Love Story as I loved Going Too far by Jennifer Echols (still need to read Forget You) and also Bitter End as I loved Hate List! (I actually cried whilst reading Hate List which is something I almost never do when reading!)
    Anyway, enjoy your fab new books!

  2. I have Bitter End in my TBR as well I am really looking forward to it. I really loved her debut and have heard good things about this one from the girl I am borrowing it from.

    I also can't wait for Love Story...my first blurb! (well that I know of & that's in a book - I've been quoted on several websites but in a book is just so different)

    Enjoy your books can't wait to see what you think of them.

  3. I love how we always have the same thing to say about our books. It's like we are book twins. It cracks me up!

    BEA!!!! woohooo can't wait to hang out again.

  4. Haha, I totally get what you mean about not wanting to part with pretty covers.
    I'm so excited for Bitter End! I loved Hate List so much. <3

    Happy reading! :)

  5. Great books this week! Moonglass looks very good, but it's been getting mixed reviews. I'll be curious to read your review. Happy reading!
