Book Reviews for Just About Every Kind of Book

In My Mailbox (4)

What a good week for books! First of all, Macmillan posted a ton of awesome titles on NetGalley, of which I grabbed six. I'm definitely most excited about Struck, which has been on my radar for a while. I mean, paranormal YA dystopia...the only way this could be better is if I had a print copy, but this will do. :-p I also want to mention that, although not the kind of YA I usually read much of, The Girl Is Trouble sounds somewhat Veronica Mars-ish, so I'm stoked about that too. Oh, and just fyi, I think the cover art for Shadow & Bone has changed since the one I found on Goodreads.

In addition to the awesome Macmillan titles, I grabbed a couple of dystopias from Marshall Cavendish and the first in a new science fiction series by Pete Hautman, published by Candlewick.

Thanks to all of the wonderful publishers and to NetGalley for making this haul possible.

I also received my order of books from bookcloseouts.com. They were all on sale for two dollars each. Who could resist that?

Great set! I'm going to have to grab The Girl is Trouble. I read the first book and really liked it.
