The one good thing about being sick is the fact I have had more time to read and blog. That's how I have managed to get a few more posts scheduled, get 3 books ahead of my GR schedule and visit some of my favourite blogs. Hopefully this progress will continue throughout 2016, where I hope to post at least three times a week.
My haul this week is really large, and the worst part is that I had to actually cut it in half and put the others in next weeks. The reason it is so large is because I forgot to include any of my recent eARCs in my December haul. I always fail at that because I just forget them because they are all stored on my Kindle. I only seem to remember all the physical beauties that I get. So this time it is time to include all the eARCs.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May, This is the Story of You by Beth Kephart, Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins and A Walk in the Sun by Michelle Zink
I am very excited to have the latest novel by Morgan Matson, I love her books. I am excited to have the sequel to The Falconer too, mostly because it should give me the push I need to finally read the first book. This is the Story of You sounds so very strange but intriguing, so I just had to get that one. Lady Renegades is one I am nervous for, I LOVED Rebel Belle, but ended up being really disappointed by the sequel. I really hope the third book is more like Rebel Belle. A Walk in the Sun looks like a cutesy read and sometimes you just need one of those.
Half Lost by Sally Green, This is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang, Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin, The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine and Unbound by Neal Shusterman
I am so happy to have an early copy of Half Lost, the wait for that book has been killing me. I have started rereading the series and have just finished Half Bad. I plan to be starting Half Lost by Sunday. I am nervous about This is Where the World Ends as I have just been seeing bad reviews for that one. Symptoms of Being Normal, to me, looks like it's going to be a novel about Hitler... it isn't. I am excited for The Impostor Queen, even if I find the cover a little creepy!
The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows, The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian, OCDaniel by Wesley King, The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry and The Dark Days Club by Allison Goodman
I can't wait to start The Orphan Queen, but I made sure to wait for the sequel as I'd heard the ending of book one made you desperate for the next book and I have very little patience. The Last Boy and Girl in the World has me intrigued. The Passion of Dolssa is one I am very excited for, I loved Julie Berry's All the Truth That's In Me,
Wanderlost by Jen Malone, Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes, The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight, The Fall of Butterflies by Andrea Portes and Autofocus by Lauren Gibaldi
I am quite excited by all the wonderful contemporary books I have to read. Girl Against the Universe has an interesting premise, although I am nervous as I didn't love the authors other books. Autofocus is one I am very excited for, I really enjoyed Lauren Gibaldi's debut novel!
Ruined by Amy Tintera, Ask Me How I Got Here by Christine Heppermann, The Way Back To You by Michelle Adreani & Mindi Scott, This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab and The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele
Ruined is one I am very curious about. I am most excited for This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab! I have heard only good things about all of her books.
Eleven Things I Promised by Catherine Clark, Dark Energy by Robison Wells, Down With the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn, My Lady Jane by Cythia Hand, Jodi Meadows & Brodi Ashton and The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
I am sooooo excited to read My Lady Jane. About this time last year I went to a very intimate lunch with Cynthia, Jodi, Brodi, along with two other bloggers and my best friend. They were talking about My Lady Jane, as they were their doing research, and the book intrigued me so bloody much. I am so happy it is finally coming out. The Crown's Game is one I am really excited for too, it looks so good and I love the cover.
Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman, The Hunt by Megan Shephard, Spark by Holly Schindler, Secrets, Lies & Scandals by Amanda K. Morgan and The Epidemic by Suzanne Young
Spark was one that sounded so good to me and I just had to download it, it was one I hadn't even heard of before I saw it. I am excited for The Epidemic, the sequel to The Remedy.
My Life with the Liars by Caela Carter, Even if the Sky Falls by Mia Garcia, Frannie and Tru by Karen Hattrup, Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes and The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen
