 Thanks SO much to Penguin, Little, Brown BFYR and Sourcebooks for letting me read these great books!

Reviews and book discussions you might have missed:

The Originals by Cat Patrick -- find out why I called this book about sister clones "Sci Fi Little Women!"

What Really Happened in Peru by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan -- I listened to this on audio and give you the scoop on the whole series of novellas.

The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau -- did this new dystopian pass my test?

Thorn Abbey by Nancy Ohlin -- I'm a huge fan of Daphne DuMaurier's Rebecca. Did this retelling thrill or disappoint?

And check out my author interview with Jodi Lamm, author of Chemistry, a retelling of The Hunchback of Notre Dame!  We talk about goats. Really!

Coming up next week:
Reviews (I hope) of The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr and The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.

On Thursday, I'm hosting a Choose Your Own Adventure Blog Hop for a longtime blog reader -- and soon-to-be-published-writer, Eliza Tilton. 

Her debut YA novel,  Broken Forest, will be published on Wednesday from Curiosity Quills Press. I'm so excited for her and can't wait to choose my own adventure!  Remember those books??

So … what's new with you? Tell me in comments and leave me a link so I can visit you back!

  15. OMGosh YES! I remember those books, I LOVED them I can't believe they are still make them. Oooh, I really have to go and buy them and introduce my kids to them. Enjoy all your books, I received Devil.. also, and can't wait to start it.

  16. A CYOA book? Loved those as a kid! And I agree...would be nice to have books to trade, but I'm just so damn happy to have a copy of Between the Devil! Love that cover!

  17. Great book this week! Dying to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Just learned about 45 pounds and it sounds great. Truly, Madly, Deadly had a very good synopsis which has me intrigued.

  18. I love the title of Truly, Madly, Deeply. It reminds me of the song, and I love it. :)

    Have a great week.

    I too posted a Sunday Post, if you'd like to stop by:

  19. OMG Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea!! I requested it, but Penguin hates me, so I will get declined. I don't know why I even bother really. Maybe one of these times they will love me enough to approve me. Truly, Madly, Deadly sounds awesome too. And OMG I loved the choose your own adventure books when I was a kid!! Super exciting!!

  20. Ooh very excited to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! Great haul this week. :-) Looking forward to your thoughts on the 5th wave! That book had me up all night a couple weeks ago.

  21. Truly Madly Deeply catches my eye.

  22. I am excited for this Choose Your Own Adventure Bloghop...... What adventure will I choose!!!! I was thinking... if I ever have time... to organize like a murder mystery blog hop sort of thing... where each blog is a character or a clue or something.... and you have to solve the mystery. But it feels like a lot of work for something I'm not sure people would participate in. lol.
