Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading.

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes – wherever young readers and books connect! 

Last week I completely forgot that I got some amazing books from Edelweiss *smacks head*
Thanks, Harper, for making these available!! I'm very excited....

I've heard great things on Goodreads about Rites of Passage. I've read Jessica Martinez's contemporaries before, and Kiss Kill Vanish sounds like a fun thriller. Exquisite Captive sounds like a romance novel, the kind with a shirtless pirate and a girl with her dress half falling off, but I loved Something Real by this author.. Snow Like Ashes has that classic dystopian circle cover we talked about on Trending Thursday...


  1. That cover of Kill Kiss Vanish looks so artfully done. <3 Looking forward to reading your thoughts on these books, Jen.

    Have a lovely week!

  2. Interested in seeing what you think of Snow Like Ashes, I held back on requesting it as I'm not sure about it. Unfortunately, I had to DNF Exquisite Captive, hope it works better for you!

  3. great haul this week. I read Snow Like Ashes...can't wait to see your thoughts. I'm sad to see that Renu had to DNF Exquisite Captive...I've been looking forward to it. Enjoy the books!

  4. I'm totally dying to get my hands on Snow Like Ashes, so I cannot wait to hear what you think of it!

  5. Awesome list of books. I got a few of the same titles as you did this week. EW/NG are my weakness.

    Books of Love

  6. I picked up four of those books from Edelweiss as well. Apparently I didn't download Rites of Passage (which I thought I had)...I may have to go back for that one sometime. I decided to pass up on Even in Paradise. Snow Like Ashes is my most anticipated fall release, so I was so excited to see that available! I hope you enjoy your new books!

  7. I got most of those Edelweiss ARCs too - I can't wait to read them.

  8. I love the cover of Kiss, Kill, Vanish, and Even in Paradise sounds so, so good! Enjoy, Jen!
