Extra! Extra! 53

Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is my weekend post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's new on the blog.

Today, I'm on vacation, so I'm actually NOT linking to Stacking the Shelves @ Tynga's Reviews and to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.   I will try to get caught up on my comments early next week :)

New books:

More Than This
Patrick Ness
September 2013
Candlewick Press

Yes, I know I also had this up last week, but I requested it on Net Galley so I could more easily read it on vacation. Thanks, Candlewick!

Ketchup Clouds
by Annabel Pitcher
November 2013
Little, Brown BFYR

A girl corresponding with a guy on death row? Yeah. This author's book My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece got some great reviews, so I'm giving this a go! Thanks, Little, Brown!

Thanks for stopping by -- if you leave a comment, I will be getting caught back up on comments when I return from my trip early next week :)


  1. Ketchup Clouds sounds interesting, hope you enjoy

  2. Hope you're enjoying your vacation with the perfect weather for whatever you're doing! Ketchup Clouds is a want to read as well-what a concept.

  3. I love Patrick Ness so much. He is probably my favorite? So I can read his books over and over but I don't think I could EVER read them for review! I'm so interested in this one but I haven't even read summaries or synopses or anything. YES I LOVE HIM THAT MUCH! How exciting that you're already reading it! EEK. That means it's coming soon!

  4. Ooohh, I've never heard of Ketchup Clouds before. It sounds very interesting. Hope you enjoy! :)

  5. Yup, Ketchup Clouds is soooo my kind of book. That probably surprised none of my friends and family, but probably worries other people. ;)

  6. I've heard good things about Patrick Ness but haven't read his books. A girl corresponding with a guy on death row does sound interesting. Happy reading!

  7. NOOO YOU ARE SO SO SO LUCKY! I got regected as I'm not US. But already preordered as I read everything Patrick Ness writes.

    Happy reading and have fun on your trip, Jen! <33

  8. I am really excited about More Than This! Have a great vacation :-)

    My Friends Are Fiction's SS

  9. Two quirky sounding titles and covers. (Plus they color coordinate - very important in a TBR pile lol)

    I'm looking forward to your reviews for both of them

  10. Kate is right, I'm not at all surprised that she is excited about Ketchup Clouds. I will wait for y'all to read it before I decide.

    I hope you had a great vacation!

  11. Ketchup Clouds is attention-getting! I can't wait to see what you think of it.

  12. Ohh you got Ketchup Clouds!! I requested it on Edelweiss and got declined. :( It's all good though, I have so many books to read that I probably didn't really need it lol!! Great haul babe!!

  13. Whoa... Ketchup Clouds sounds like it has a very cool premise.

  14. That does sound good. I'm adding it.

  15. I'm really, really intrigued by Ketchup Clouds, but I'm going to wait for some reviews first.

  16. I loved My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, so I'm really excited to read Ketchup Clouds. Also, Patrick Ness always rocks, so More Than This is definitely on my wish list. Happy reading!
