What happened on the blog this past week?

What new books did I get and what am I reading?

Touch of Scarlet
by Eve Marie Mont

You might remember that I reviewed Breath of Eyre last year, and I'm curious to see what the author is going to do with one of my not-so-favorite books, The Scarlet Letter. While reading that book was a low point of my middle school experience, I did love the movie Easy A, so I will keep an open mind.

Thanks to Kensington Teen for allowing me to read this one!

I know to some of you, a foot of snow is not a lot, but here, it does slow down the city a bit. I'm holed up with a mug of tea and my Giant Stack O'Books:

Yeah, I probably won't get all those read this weekend. But I'm going to do my best to whittle down the stack.

Last Week's Winners:

YA Hop: Kimberly

Hot Off the Presses: Emily @ Falling for YA

Freebie Friday RAK: Dorothy, Lori @ Writing My Own Fairy Tale, Jaime @ Fiction Fare, and Angela.

Hope you all enjoy your books!

  1. Nice pile of books! Notes from ghost town and pivot points were pretty good, but I didn't even manage to finsh How to lead a life of crime. So many new releases coming up this week! I swear I've lost count of them!

    1. Only about a foot here. Hoping it melts on Monday!

    Happy reading,

  4. Hope the snow doesn't stay too long! But you have a nice selection of books to keep you going at least! Hope you enjoy all of your reads - and your new one from Kensington :D

    Here's what I got this week.

    Faye :)

  5. Oh so many great books in that stack!! Hope you get some good reading time in. I'm hoping to get some reading done today, but with the hubs home, probably not. That's okay though.

  6. This sounds like a fabulous weekend!!!! Maybe I'll pretend it's snowing on...... Friday, the next day I could actually get away with reading all day.

    Also, your problem with the Scarlet Letter is probably that you read it in middle school. ew.

  7. That's a lot of snow :( I really hate snow, so I feel very sorry for pretty much everyone right now! I hope you're reading Pivot Point because I want to read that soooooo bad.

  8. So interesting to hear about all the snow-here on the West Coast, we've got none of that! But I'm still spending time holed up reading-hoping to finish two more books today and catch up on reviews for this week. At the moment, I have read the six books I'm reviewing but have not written a word about any of them yet.

  9. You can read that many in a weekend?! Or even close to it? I am a little jealous of that fact. lol I'm lucky if I can finish one. I am currently reading Notes from Ghost Town and like it so far. I am so curious about Revel. I don't think I've seen any reviews for that one yet. I hope you enjoy! Stay warm this weekend!

  23. Ha, I love the way you do your recaps! They're so fun to read! :)

    And wow, great books! Personally dying for How to Lead a Life of Crime. :D

  24. LOVED Pivot Point! Revel sounds interesting as well. I've heard so much about Crash and Clash. I'm curious but I heard it is a super drama filled relationship so I'm wondering if I'll get annoying. I did like Beautiful Disaster so I might like them. Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Great pile of books! *sigh* wish we could have gotten snow. Instead we got heat!

  26. Wish I was snowed in. We haven't seen any this year...at least not enough to keep me from leaving my house. :( Hurry up and read Siege & Storm...I'm on the ARC tour and I want it NOW. :P J/k. Sorta. It's one of my top anticipated reads this year. I'm planning on listening to the audio for Shadow & Bone soon as a refresher based on your rec. :)
