So this week I didn’t get any real books, even tho I so desperately wait for The Fault in our Stars by John Green. Sadly Amazon sent it out on January, 12th and I somehow have a feeling that it won’t be signed… but we will see. Maybe I get a yeti, noone knows.
Even tho I got no real books I got a few NetGalley Books and some of them are even ARCs! Woho!
Books I got at NetGalley:
So this is one of my first ARCs. The funny thing is, that I got all of them the same day so I can’t even say which was the first one. In addition this is counting for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge.
Release Date: April 9th, 2012
Here is the Goodreads Summary:
Olivia’s sad, solitary life in Seattle comes dangerously close to ending one fateful night, if not for a neighbor saving her in the nick of time. Curious about her mysterious rescuer, she seeks him out in hope of getting some answers, but instead finds something she never thought she’d have again.
This is the second ARC and I read already the first few pages and really liked it. Was looking forward to this one since I requested it and I’m excited that I got it. Thanks to Random House Children’s Books for sending it to me!
Release Date: May 8th, 2012
I’m Adrienne Haus, survivor of a mother-daughter book club. Most of us didn’t want to join. My mother signed me up because I was stuck at home all summer, with my knee in a brace. CeeCee’s parents forced her to join after cancelling her Paris trip because she bashed up their car. The members of “The Unbearable Book Club,” CeeCee, Jill, Wallis, and I, were all going into eleventh grade A.P. English. But we weren’t friends. We were literary prisoners, sweating, reading classics, and hanging out at the pool. If you want to find out how membership in a book club can end up with a person being dead, you can probably look us up under mother-daughter literary catastrophe. Or open this book and read my essay, which I’ll turn in when I go back to school.
This is another Book I got from Random House Children’s Books. I requested it because it sounds interesting and the Cover looks… scary :). This is also a YA Novel by a Debut Author so it counts for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge!
Release Date: March 13th, 2012
Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.
He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator’s grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .
Forgot to mention that all of these were E-Books for my Kindle. Looking forward to reading all of them. I’m still surprised that I got Books on NetGalley, somehow I thought I wouln’t (yet). I’m curious when I will receive my first actual Paper Copy of a Book or if ever. Looking forward to your IMMs and see you next Week!
