And up for grabs on Freebie Friday …  Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

This week's reviews:

Regular reviews of The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman, Antigoddess by Kendare Blake, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

Coming up next week:

Reviews of More Than This by Patrick Ness, Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein, Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts and … probably … 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil.  Maybe more. I'm reading like crazy this month...

New books:
I was so excited to get these in the mail! Thanks, Abrams!

 Sick by Tom Leveen -- pitched as The Breakfast Club meets the Walking Dead. I'm going to try this, and if it's too gory, I'm giving it to Teen Snark, my guest reviewer.

Goodbye, Rebel Blue by Shelley Coriell -- Rebecca Blue is a rebel with an attitude whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a soon-to-be dead girl. Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate.

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


  1. Yay for lots of reading! I had a good start with Labor Day but have slowed a bit when going back into the workweek. I like the sound of Goodbye Rebel Blue-hope it's a good read!

  2. I got Sick from Netgalley and I can't wait to get started on it since it's pitched to Walking Dead fans :)
