The Weekly Wrap-Up (14)

Thanks to the magic of scheduling posts, nobody knew that I've been without internet all week! As I type this, I'm at a Starbucks near my house. Our router at home went kaput, so I've been without and unable to return any comments :( I hope to have a new one installed this weekend though!

In case you missed it...
ARC Review: The Other Normals by Ned Vizzini.
Quirky and I love it. 4 Stars.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Basically Killed For To Buy...and I Still Haven't Read Them.

Waiting on: Golden by Jessi Kirby.
I can barely stand the wait.

ARC Review: Between You & Me by Marisa Calin.
A fabulous look at friendship with a unique presentation. 4.5 Stars

Coming up this week...
Shanon reviews Entwined by Heather Dixon
I review For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (spoiler: LOVE) and Beta by Rachel Cohn!
(apparently it's beautiful cover week!)
Also, a Waiting on Wednesday pick that I know you all share. I just know.

Onto the book haul!

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
When I was at the Keeper of the Lost Cities launch, I was in line with my friend Andrea Ortega and she spotted this on the shelf and said it was one of her favourites. I had to check it out! It sounds like a fab novel just based on the synopsis, at least - and I trust Andrea :)

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
One of my favourites, and it's a holiday book! Finally own it :) I'll be giving away a copy next month, too!

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Timeless by Alexandra Monir
Eve by Anna Carey
There's a reason why I bought all these this week, but my lips are sealed as to why ;) Hopefully you'll find out next week!

Small, but a seriously great haul this week.

    I can't wait to see the review about Entwined; I loved that book :)

    Timeless is great! I can't wait for Timekeeper.
    Eve is pretty good. I still want to read Starcrossed.

    Happy reading :D
