Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is my weekly post featuring any and all exciting blog news.

I'm linking up to Sunday Post hosted by the lovely Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer


What happened on the blog this past week? Well, first I have two great giveaways that are wrapping up soon, so be sure you're entered:

Hot Off the Presses!
Win your choice of Boundless, Everbound, Shades of Earth, Slated or Level 2

Scarlet! finished copy giveaway of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer!

Things you need to know:

Earlier this morning I posted a how-to on changing your Goodreads settings and notifications. Making these few small changes was SO helpful to me -- check it out here.


This past week I reviewed:

Everbound by Brodi Ashton
Why did I think this second book in a trilogy was a marked departure from the first?

Slated by Teri Terry
Why did I cause trouble by trying to pair two characters together who can't be a couple?!

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
In which I cause more trouble by suggesting that yes, there is mad chemistry between Cinder and this new dude!

Nobody but Us by Kristin Halbrook
This dark contemporary was kind of like a road trip to a place I wasn't sure I wanted to go, and yet I still enjoyed the ride.

New books -- click on the covers to add to Goodreads.

Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston The Reece Malcolm List Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for approving me for Rules For Disappearing!

Thanks to Entangled for approving me for The Reece Malcolm List!

And thanks to fate and my bookstore for uniting me with a slightly dented up but still totally readable copy of Perfect Scoundrels. SO excited about that one!

Last week's winners:

Tressa, aka commenter number 63, won the January 18 Freebie Friday!

What's Up for Next Week? So glad you asked.
Reviews of The Madman's Daughter, Prodigy, and Perfect Scoundrels, plus I'm a stop on a YA Hop. Hope you'll drop by!

What's new with you? Tell me in comments or leave me a link!


  1. I've read Scarlet now (and loved it)-thank you for reassuring me about Cinder and Kai. I think he's just so upstanding and he has the least amount of fun of everyone in the book so I just want good things for him. However with two more books, I think they're just going to get worse before they get better (Meyer better not kill him is all I can say though).

    1. Nah, I think he'll go the distance. And I'm hoping he gets more fun stuff to do.

  2. Oh! Thanks for reminding me I have to get my YA hop giveaway post together today. Can't wait to hear what you thought about Prodigy!

  3. The Rules for Disappearing looks super good! And I STILL have to get on reading Prodigy and Cinder ... I feel so far behind!

  4. I just updated my goodreads. Apparently, everyone was my top friend!

    1. Yeah, LOL. They're very sneaky to make that the default!

  5. I am still reading 'slated', it seems to be taking ages to read!. Going to push and try to finish it today I hope :)

  6. O I am going to have to update goodreads, thats some good information. I get so sick of invitations hehe. Gread advice. You had a quiet productive week!

  7. Great week Jen :)) I really can't wait to see how The Rules for Disappering Goes! Hope you enjoy all of them and I really should get onto Cinder :)

    Happy Reading! :)

  8. I really need to try Heist Society. I've heard it's great. I should go request The Reece Malcolm list. It's a book I've been waiting for a while now. I just get so overwhelmed!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Jen!

  9. i really want to read perfect scoundrels! and scarlet!

  10. Rules for Disappearing is on my TBR as well. Hope you love it.
    Happy reading,
    Brandi @ Blkosiner’s Book Blog

  11. I'm reading Fallout by Ellen Hopkins. It's taken me longer than usual because I'm moving house & I have so much going on in my personal life =(

  12. I am both salivating and sweating about getting a copy of PERFECT SCOUNDRELS! I really enjoyed novella DOUBLE CROSSED, but I definitely see some worrisome themes coming, as Hale's two worlds collide. I LOVE YOU KAT AND HALE. Stay strong.

  13. There is such a buzz about SCARLET. I hope it lives up to all the hype.

  14. I'm interested to see what you think of Rules since you recently read another witness protection story. :) Also, I still need to start the Heist Society books...what have I been doing?

  15. Looks like you've had a fantastic week! Tell me when you finish Perfect Scoundrels. Tell me if it's awesome, but don't give anything away. Double Crossed was so fabulously perfect that I'm pretty much dying for PS. Only about a week to go!
