This week was a really good week for me, in terms of acquiring new books to read!
I went a little crazy on Netgalley this week because I saw so many amazing titles that I wanted to read, so here's what I got:
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
I've heard such amazing things about this book so I was very happy when I got approved for this!
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
I fell in love with Harrington's writing style after Saving June and I hope I love this book just as much as her debut.
Painted Blind by Michelle A. Hansen
I'm a total sucker for greek myth retellings... and the Psyche and Eros story is one of my favorites!
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan
"On remote Rollrock Island, men go to sea to make their livings--and to catch their wives.The witch Misskaella knows the way of drawing a girl from the heart of a seal, of luring the beauty out of the beast. And for a price a man may buy himself a lovely sea-wife. He may have and hold and keep her. And he will tell himself that he is her master. But from his first look into those wide, questioning, liquid eyes, he will be just as transformed as she. He will be equally ensnared. And the witch will have her true payment.
Margo Lanagan weaves an extraordinary tale of desire, despair, and transformation. With devastatingly beautiful prose, she reveals characters capable of unspeakable cruelty, but also unspoken love."Sounds good, huh?
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Alright. Let's see what the fuss is about...
The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Umm, pirates + assassins + a kickbutt heroine....
Palace of Stone (Princess Academy #2) by Shannon Hale
You better believe I jumped up and down and squealed when I got approved for this--I loved Princess Academy so I can't wait to see where this book goes!
Rape Girl by Alina Klein
This book tackles a pretty tough issue, but every review I've read has been singing praises of this book so I can't wait to read it for myself!
Two and Twenty Dark Tales anthology
"Dark retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes"
Dark Star by Bethany Frenette
A book about a girl whose mom is a superhero... O_o
The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors
LOVE the cover. Not yet sure about the concept: a girl who can turn milk into chocolate...
The Demon Catchers of Milan by Kat Beyer
The synopsis sounded too cool to resist.
Fire by Kristin Cashore
This is my favorite book in the Graceling Realm series so I just had to go out and get my own copy. (And hopefully, I will have reviews of all three books up soon).
Gargantuan haul, I know! These books are definitely going to keep me occupied for the coming weeks--on top of the books I still need to finish!!
So what did you acquire any new books this week? Link me up or just comment below--I just love hearing about book hauls! :)
