For whatever reason, I never clicked post on this entry on Monday. This post contains the books I received between March 1st and March 13th.
I received a few galley from netgalley which I'm very excited about and completely addicted to. I'm dying to read Phoenix Rising by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris. The cover and summary are just too amazing. When I saw that a Julie Garwood book was available, I jumped all over it. I haven't heard great things about her contemporaries but I love her historicals too much to not give The Ideal Man a try. I also received Mercy by Rebecca Lim. It's a YA angels book so I needed to have it plus it's being published by Disney-Hyperion. Okay, so I got more than a few galleys... I also got Guarding a Notorious Lady by Olivia Parker. I didn't know that it was the third in a series at the time, in fact I'm pretty sure it alluding to being her first book or the first in a series but I must be mistaken. The last book I got from netgalley is Die For Me by Amy Plum. It's another YA paranormal book so I'm very excited.
I received my first hard copy ARC. I've been hearing wonderfully good things about Where She Went by Gayle Forman and the previous book. Thank you so, so much to Dutton for sending me this.
I didn't win anything these two weeks. Next post will have something though!
I bought River Marked by Patricia Briggs. When did hardcover books become so expensive?! This book was 30$ at Borders. I'm horribly sad to say that I'm struggling with this book. I love Briggs, I love Mercy and Adam, and I love this series but I'm still not over the shenanigans of the previous book. I hated the Sam plot, absolutely loathed it. I am forever grateful that Moon Called introduced me to urban fantasy and paranormal romance, however.
Whose library just got Delirium by Lauren Oliver? Yeah, that's right. Mine JUST got it... I've been tormented by reviews and raves for months and I can finally read it. I also grabbed If I Stay by Gayle Forman since I received the second book for review. Luckily there wasn't a hold list.
