  7. The Summer My Life Began sounds like a great, fun read! I've been reading a lot of contemporary YA lately, and this sounds perfect for the summer. Happy reading! :)

  8. You thought it was an amoeba? An amoeba? Bwahahahahahaha, LOL...jk. That is a very deceiving cover. I hope you enjoy Across the Universe. I loved it. It took a bit for me to get hooked, so just be patient with it.

    Your idea of reading mostly contemporary fun reads sounds like a great idea for summer. I'm getting a little sick of the paranormals myself.

  20. The Academie sounds amazing. I hadn't heard of it before, so I am now adding it to my "to be read" list.

    Unearthly is one of the better angel novels. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    Great mailbox!

  25. Tiger's Curse is utterly fabulous, though it's definitely not 'summery contemporary YA'. ;) It was my December "Book of the Month" pick. I loved it.

    I have Across the Universe on my shelf and need to get to it once my friend Kate is done reading it. (Hurry up! *laughs*).

    I'm about half way through Unearthly and need to finish it. I had issues with it at the beginning, but it really picked up and sucked me in and only the fact that I've been editing my own novel has kept me from getting back to it.

    As for Twenty Boy Summer I *really* need to read that, because I've *wanted* to read it for ages. Gah! I saw it yesterday, too. Why didn't I buy it? *shakes head*

    Anyway, enjoy all the great books. I hope next week is just as fun for you. :) Thanks for visiting my blog.

  26. I love the sound of all of them! I too have Unearthly, which I haven't read, but I hope you enjoy it!

  35. the cover for The Academie by Susanne Dunlap looks gorgeous! so pretty! and if you're looking for light contemporaries you should check the summer trilogy by jenny han, perfect summer read! and i can't believe you haven't read 20 boy summer. it is AWESOME though not really light.

  37. I adore library books :) I just snagged THE FALSE PRINCE and TRAITOR'S SON last week :) I've been wanting to read THE ACADEMIE as well! I didn't realize it was historical! Have you read anything by Jessica Brody? I like her for light contemporary! I liked PAST PERFECT last year by Leila Sales as well for that sort of genre! I'm sure your co-workers are used to you, lol. They're used to me! Oh, I've been wanting to read Sarah Ockler as well! IMAGINARY GIRLS is contemporary, but it's a little...I don't know if I'd call it paranormal, but..I don't know what I'd call it. It was def. a favorite cover of mine last year! I was borderline with it, but I think I had super high expectations. Can't wait to hear your thoughts! I'm like you. Even if reviews are mixed, if I want to read it or was looking fw to it, I still will. Like THE PLEDGE by Kimberly Derting! A lot of people didn't like it a lot, but it's also *fantasy* dystopian with kings and queens and stuff, so a lot of people don't like that genre in their dystopian, but I like it a lot! Oh, ATU! I still need to read the second book! I still have to read my copy of WHEN THE SEA IS RISING RED, eep! And the second...and third...Estep.... It is a mythology book, yes. But not a retelling of anything! UNEARTHLY, ahh!! I cannot WAIT to hear your thoughts! So so so good. I'm like you. I'm not a fan of angel books, but UNEARTHLY was so good! I love that your library has HALF-BLOOD and that you had it ordered in. It's SUCH a good book and I can't wait to hear your thoughts!! (Speaking of cover love, did you see that I did an interview with the cover designer Kate Kaynak for the tour this past month? So much fun! :) )

  38. The Summer My Life Began sounds really good. I live with a chef and think it's really sweet that the MC dreams of becoming one :)

  39. Twenty Boy Summer is incredible!!! I've read it three times already and cry every time... Enjoy all your books!

    ReplyDelete
  40. You are so right about Beth Revis. I met her at YALL FEST and she is hilarious. I really want to read When the Sea is Rising Red and Tiger's Course. You had a great library week! I hope you enjoy them all:)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I want to read The Academie so bad, and was approved on Netgalley for it but it was too late! By the time I realized I'd been approved it had already been archived. Sad but true story. Enjoy reading your new books :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. So many good ones!!! Across the Universe is one of my favorites...I really enjoyed Twenty Boy Summer and loved Imaginary Girls.

  46. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who hasn't read Across the Universe! I've had it, and Imaginary Girls, sitting on my bookshelf for eons -- must get on that ASAP! I look forward to reading your reviews as well. I haven't heard of The Academie, but I have a fondness for boarding school books, so I look forward to hearing what you think of that one too!

  52. I LOVED Twenty Boy Summer, I read it last year right around this time! It was soo extremely sad, but also really good! I would recommend getting a box of tissues, before you start reading. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    I read The Academie, and liked it. I think you're really going to like Across the Universe. I didn't think I was going to like it, but I devoured it, as well as its sequel.

  67. I LOVED Unearthly, Across the Universe and Twenty Boy Summer. I have a copy of Tiger's Curse, just haven't gotten the chance to read it yet. I've been wanting to read Touch Frost! It sounds amazing.

    That's so cool that you're a librarian. I don't have a local library to go to (that's in a safe neighborhood) so I miss out on the chance of getting books there. But that's awesome that you do :) I hope you enjoy all these books.
