For Review


Princess Academy: Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale
I loved Princess Academy and was super excited when I got an invite to participate in the blog tour. A hardcopy of the book was provided for review purposes, and I got to interview one of my favorite authors of all time! (LOVE Shannon Hale's writing.) Come back for the tour stop August 24th!

Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Coronado by B.K. Bostick
I loved Huber Hill #1 and was delighted to get an invite to participate in the tour for the second book. I actually read this book immediately after downloading it to my Kindle. It is just as fabulous as book one. Come back August 25th for my review, an interview with B.K. Bostick, and a giveaway of this book!

Sneak (Swipe #2) by Evan Angler
I'm participating in the blog tour for Sneak (date yet to be confirmed). It looks amazing. As I hadn't read Swipe yet either, I also received a copy of the first book.

Refuge by Carol Rummage
This looks like an interesting read. The cover and synopsis are mysterious and haunting. I'm looking for something not so action-packed to read in between all the action-packed goodies in my TBR&Review pile.sparse

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
I have all of Sarah Dessen's books in paperback now! (Except for What Happened to Goodbye.) Since I had all her other books old-cover style, I freaked out when all the online sites stopped offering Dreamland with the original paperback cover. Luckily, I dropped by a Barnes and Noble store Friday and found the original paperback. I bought it.

Forest Born by Shannon Hale
Books of Bayern. All four books sitting on my bookshelf now! If it isn't obvious already, I'll read anything by Shannon Hale. She's awesome.

Thanks to Bloomsbury, Thomas Nelson, and Cedar Fort.
Also thanks to Barnes and Noble (for stocking up on two books I wanted to buy this week). For that, I'll forgive you for hiding Tamora Pierce from me. More exploration of the YA shelves' new location needed.

How about you?

  1. Those are some great books Kris! I hope you enjoy them all.

    I got a lot of awesome books this week including ARCs of Enchanted by Alethea Kontis, Velveteen by Daniel Marks, Beta by Rachel Cohn, and Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. I also got a sneak preview version of The Archived by Victoria Schwab from Netgalley.

    1. Thanks Michelle. You have some awesome books there as well. Hope you enjoy!

  2. I have Swipe. I got about 17 pages into it to meet the characters and put it down to read something else. I do plan on finishing it, but the characters were sort of flat to me. One girl hated that she moved across country and left her mom behind. One guy was a creep. And the other one was paranoid about everything. I was just like "yeah... okay..."

    1. I'm sorry to hear that Swipe wasn't for you. Keep me updated on your progress. I'll let you know how it goes for me. :)

  3. Swipe sounds really good! I think I'm going to have to look into reading it. :)
