New Books!

My lovely, kind, wonderful brother brought me to a bookstore for my birthday so I have some new, exciting books to read!

I absolutely adore Robin McKinley - I've reread almost of all of her books countless times (although I just looked this up on goodreads and apparently there's a fairly epicly major cliffhanger.  Huh.  I don't handle cliffhangers well...and it's a bit unclear about sequel/not sequel.  That's a bit alarming).  I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer in a matter of hours it hooked me so much!  So I'm very excited to read the sequel (and will likely be dying to read the next one..I must love to torture myself).  Gabrielle Zevin has written in such a wide range of settings - the afterlife, dystopian future, etc.  I've loved her writing so far (you can see my review for Elsewhere) so I am equally as excited for this (and eagerly awaiting her next book in the Because It Is My Blood trilogy).

In other exciting news, if Golden by Jessi Kirby has been on your wishlist (as it has mine), head over and join Pulse It which has the full book available online until June 16th!

Happy reading!


  1. I have the first Mara Dyer book sitting on my shelf. Its good to know you were hooked cause I've been really wanting to read that one because of all the great reviews.

    Enjoy all your new books! :)

    1. I think the last book in the trilogy is coming out in October, so you'll luck out and be able to read all three in one go if you like the series. Cliffhangers are the worst! I'm tempted to not read the second book til the third book comes out, but I'm not sure I have the willpower to wait haha

  2. Oh my goodness, Beauty by Robin McKinley is one of my all-time favorites, and yet somehow I have never gone out and found anything else by her. I will risk the cliffhanger!

    1. I instantly buy any book I find by McKinley. Her writing gets on some people's nerves (they call it rambling, I call it beautiful), but I have loved every book I've ever read by her.
