Sooooo many books this week eeeeeeeeeeee~~!! =D
Total = 14!! =D
The Hour Glass by Hilary Spiers
Won this from Goodreads. It's a short story anthology. Will be using the holidays to go through the short stories, along with my little towering pile of anthology collections I neglected this year... I'll do my best to get a full review up, but no promises.
Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith
Eeeeeeee so excited for this book! There's WWII and women and plane pilots and POC and it just sounds like a really, really promising YA historical novel, if the first chapter is anything to go by. >D
Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata
A;LSKDFJASDLKFJ I GOT THIS HARDBACK FOR $9.99 CDN!!! ASL;DKJFDASL;JF Did I ever mention how much I love Kadohata? I love, love, love Kadohata. I haven't read Kira-Kira yet (blasphemous, I know), but if her other books are anything to go by, I'm confident that I'm going to love this one.
A Curse Dark As Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce
Rapunzel retelling! =D I love retellings, and I'm interested in how Bunce relocates the setting into 1700s England.
Luv Ya Bunches by Lauren Myracle
It just looks like a cute MG novel. And bonus: a diverse cast! =D
BLUE BLOODS BOXSET -
Blue Bloods, Masquerade, Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz
You know how everyone has their guilty vampire reads? Well, the Blue Bloods series is mine. Yes yes it's generic and way too much brand-name dropping and the writing is horrid and the cast sucks but THE CRAZY MYTHOLOGY OF EPIC, YOU GUYS. REINCARNATIONS! PSEUDO-INCESTUOUS TWINS. It's like Gossip Girl meets Twilight meets Angel Sanctuary and it makes my heart die in happiness.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
I already reviewed this. SO GOOD. I'M BUYING MY OWN COPY THIS WEEK OR WHENEVER IS THE CLOSEST CHANCE I GET TO HIT A BOOKSTORE.
Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph
Cute, light-hearted read. Lots of fun, but not exactly a book I'm going to remember in the future or thinking about getting my own copy though. Will do a write up for it soon.
The Kiss of Death by Marcus Sedgwick
It's about time I started a Sedgwick novel, and I thought I'd start of with this copy. From the first few pages it looks really promising.
The Swan Kingdom by Zoe Marriot
Retelling of the Wild Swans! Which is like, only one of my favourite fairytales of alllllll tiiiiiime~~ I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that it'll end up being good.
Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Borrowed on a whim. it's one of those titles wherein I see the cover on sites so many times that I finally got curious enough to check it out.
Riot by Walter Dean Myers
Because I felt the need to check out more of Myers stuff, and the whole draft riots aspect of this novel sounded interesting.
