Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicki at Books, Biscuits, and Tea, where we showcase what books we've gotten over the course of the week, whether it be bought, received from the library, from the publishers for review, etc.
How to Love: I am so excited to start this one. I've been in the mood for contemporaries lately, and this one has gotten rave reviews from friends of mine so far, and from the synopsis, I'm pretty sure it focuses on a mother/daughter relationship, so I'm looking forward to hopefully having my heart stomped on while reading this book. Thanks, Balzer + Bray!
The Beginning of Everything: This is another contemporary I got this week that has gotten rave reviews from friends of mine! I'm not exactly sure what it's about, but Christina says it's witty, and the author told me it has a lot of puns, and the original title (Severed Heads, Broken Hearts) intrigues me, so I think I'll love this one quite a bit. Thanks, Katherine Tegen Books!
Being Sloane Jacobs: I wouldn't normally be interested in this one, but I've heard great things about Lauren Morill's Meant to Be, so I hope this one is as fun as I've heard that one is. Thanks, Delacorte!
Once We Were: !!!!! I loved What's Left of Me, so words can't describe how excited I am for this one. I'm thinking of reading it while I'm waiting at the airport/on the plane on Tuesday. Can't wait! Thanks, HarperCollins!
The Burning Sky: I honestly don't know much about this one, but I've heard really good things, and I think it's about an elixir that goes wrong and screws everything up (though I could be completely wrong and am too lazy to actually check for myself and read the synopsis), so I look forward to it. Fantasy isn't usually my genre, but I've read some really good ones this year. Here's to hoping The Burning Sky joins those good ones. Thanks, Balzer + Bray!
Frostbite: I wasn't the hugest fan of Vampire Academy, but I fully intend to continue the series, and have heard that it gets much better after the second book, so I hope I like this one more than I did the first!
