Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I love Peter Pan and am always up for a good retelling or, in this case, a good prequel. I'm especially excited for the chance to see things through another character's perspective.
A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young
I LOVE A Need So Beautiful (read my review here) and am super excited to read book two. Charlotte and Harlin are an adorable couple, and I'm sad that Charlotte has lost her memories. I need to find out what happens!
So Close to You by Rachel Carter
I was hooked when I saw the words "abandoned military base" in the synopsis. I'm intrigued by the Montauk Project that took place at the base.
Social Suicide by Gemma Halliday
This was included in a pack of ARCs that HarperTeen sent me. For some reason, I thought that it was going to be another paranormal read (I think it was because of book one's title and cover) and wasn't sure if I wanted to read it or not, but then I read the synopsis and realized that this is was a mystery novel. The humor and characters really stood out to me in this one, and I ended up loving the book.
Once by Anna Carey
I loved the first book (read my review here) and knew I had to pick up book two!
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I love Jane Austen's novels, so when I heard that this book is based off Persuasion, I knew I had to read this, especially because this isn't a normal retelling. It's a retelling set in a dystopian world. How cool is that?
Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer
Overachievers suddenly deciding to get involved in school activities? This shouts contemporary with humor. And I love a good contemporary read. I'm excited to see how the girls fare in their "greatest challenge" yet, to quote the synopsis.
Girl Out Loud by Emily Gale
This screams contemporary read with humor. I would be horrified if my dad made me audition for a TV talent show and am interested in seeing what kind of show Kass manages to pull off. P.S. The cover is adorable.
The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
I'm participating in a feature of the Maximum Ride series as it comes to a close and will be reviewing book one at the blog soonish! I don't know how I missed out on this series all these years, but this book is engrossing, and I will definitely be reading the rest of the books.
Dark Souls by Paula Morris
England setting + intense, mysterious hot boys + gorgeous cover = must read
Plus, I love dark (read: intense) paranormal/fantasy books.
The Invisible World by Suzanne Weyn
I love historical fiction, and it's been a while since I read one on the Salem Witch Trials (the last one being The Witch of Blackbird Pond back in grade school--that long ago).
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
I'm intrigued by the whole idea behind Eva's existence and am dying to read this book to find out what happens now that Eva must replace Amarra. Will she be found out or not? And why was she made in the first place?
Defiance by C.J. Redwine
I love fantasy and adventure, and Defiance comes with the whole package, plus what sounds like a hot protector. It doesn't hurt that I love the cover.
A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kodi Keplinger
This sounds like a fun, light-hearted contemporary read. Whitely's dad gets remarried, and her new stepbrother is her one-night stand from graduation night. Awkward much?
I also received various e-ARCs, but the post would go on forever. This IMM is the accumulation of several weeks... a couple of months... of none-IMM-posting. You'll see what I received when I post my reviews!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
I love Sarah Dessen's books. While at the mall the other day, I dropped by Barnes and Noble and visited the teen section. Looking the row of Sarah Dessen books, I made a compulsive purchase and got a book of hers that I've been meaning to read for a while. Auden and Eli's respective stories are compelling, and I can't wait to get started on this book!
