I don't get sent ARCs that often. I'm not complaining, because I get a lot to read from NetGalley and Edelweiss. But the other day, these two came in the mail.

Thanks SO much to Penguin Teen and Macmillan Children's Books for these two!

Reviews you might have missed:

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch -- see my take on this unflinching coming of age story.

Clockwork Princess -- spoiler free review -- by Cassandra Clare  -- did you really think I was going to tell you the ending?

This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith -- which chick flicks did this book remind me of?

Reviews of two amazing historical YAs: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers and The Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters.

  11. I just signed up for BlogLovin today and am really enjoying its simplicity so far.

    Great books! Some awesome books you received. Happy reading those for sure!!

    Here's my Weekly Wrap Up for this week.

  12. Oo, I'm glad you got SIEGE AND STORM! I'm starting that soon. :) I got a copy of STAR-CURSED as well, though I'm not sure I'm going to read it--I had more mixed feelings about the first one (although I liked it), so I may pass it on.

    Happy reading, Jen!

  13. Star Cursed looks great and I still need to read Shadow & Bone! I've heard great things about it and everyone seems excited for that sequel.

  14. Those are both two series that I have yet to start! I hope you love both of them! I'm looking forward to your Be A Better Blogger feature!

  15. I'm doing a little challenge at the moment with one of the book clubs on goodreads, i need to read 10 books in 14 days, Day 4, and I'm halfway through book 5! got to keep reading!

  16. I'm lovin' Bloglovin'. I don't like the feel of Feedly at all. I know what you mean about receiving ARCs. I have way more than enough from NG and Edelweiss. Hope you enjoy your books!

  17. Oh wow, Star Cursed! I bet it even looks better in person! :) I hope you enjoy reading both of your ARCs- I will read Shadow and Bone soon, since I haven't heard a single negative thing about it yet. Can't wait to read your review of Dark Triumph as well! :)

  18. Looks like you had a busy week! Star Cursed looks so good, and reminds me that I still haven't read my copy of Born Wicked! Enjoy your books, Jen!

  19. Yeah for getting Siege and Storm!!! I'm excited for you because I know you wanted a copy! I so need that one! I've been debating if I'll just have to buy both that and Shadow and Bone. I would definitely re-read them - at least I'm assuming I'd like to read Siege and Storm since I haven't read it yet. I'm looking forward to your reviews for this week. I've got a ton going on. I'd like to review five books this week, which is probably impossible, but we'll see. At the minimum I'll have three up (one of which is already written). :)

  20. Looking forward to what you think about Star Cured. I loved the first book.

  21. I'm so glad you are reading In the Shadow of Blackbirds! I loved it. Also *squeeeee* Star Cursed!!!!

  22. I have yet to read the copy of Born Wicked that I won last year. D'oh. And I am soooo freakin' jealous of that copy of Siege and Storm! I was gonna be on the ARC Tour. Then I got approved on Netgalley, so I removed myself from the tour. Then I forgot to DL the galley and it was archived THE DAY I WENT TO PICK IT UP. I am sooo distraught that I missed out. You know how excited I am for this book! :(

  23. Yay! You got Star Cursed. I really liked the first one. Very much looking forward to your thoughts on Dark Triumph. Also the Feedly vs. Bloglovin post will be really useful for me. I'm kind of at a loss as to what to use. :-)

  24. Oh! Star Cursed! That's exciting! I think I would have to re-read parts of Born Wicked before starting that one though! It feels like it's been forever since I read that!

    And woo hoo! for scoring a copy of Siege and Storm:)

  25. Ooh, I'm very much looking forward to your comparison of Feedly and Bloglovin. I'm currently focusing on and experimenting with the former but I should give the latter a fair try as well. Looking forward to a great week (as I post on Thursday :)
