Defiance by C.J. Redwine -- this is the book I'm in bed with, in case you were wondering!
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
What reviews and special features were on the blog this week?

Saturday I reviewed Every Day by David Levithan. Regular readers know I love body-switching stories. Was this one the exception or the rule?

Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan -- a generation-spanning tale of selkie magic and revenge! Can't wait!

My Sunday Post
I'm enjoying it so far!!Delete
I saw Nerve on the On Order list at the library, so of course I have a hold on it. It looks pretty good!ReplyDelete
I hope I like it. Sometimes virtual reality stuff is too techy for me, but we shall see :)Delete
I am really looking forward to Defiance. It sounds really good! I also feel the same way about steampunk and zombies so I will be on the lookout for your review for Something Strange and Deadly this week. :)ReplyDelete
You can check out what books I got this week here!
Ha ha -- can't wait to see what you think!!Delete
Oooh ... Defiance looks super good! I love the cover! :) I'm interested to see your review of Something Strange and Deadly!ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying it so far. I had to stop reading, which is annoying, but hoping to finish today!Delete
Ooh I am looking forward to your review of Defiance. It sounds so good and its definitely calling my name. I went on a book buying spree and I hope I find time to read asap.ReplyDelete
There are so many late August and Sept things I want! Spree, here I come!Delete
Oh I guarantee I will find more books. Just trying to do a few at a time.Delete
I can't wait to see what you think of Defiance! I can't remember, though...do you usually enjoy fantasy? Anyway, I'm really interested in The Brides of Rollrock Island. I've been contemplating it for awhile, but I think I'll wait for your review. :)ReplyDelete
I enjoy some fantasy. Books with fantasy elements, yes. High fantasy is not so much for me. So Defiance seems to be the right amount of fantasy so far!!Delete
oh man, I REALLY want to read Nerve!! I've read Defiance and its great!!ReplyDelete
enjoy your books!
