I had a fantastic week in terms of books! After a long drought, I finally two books and got quite a satisfying load at the library. Plus, despite the large amounts of homework my teachers have inflicted upon me, I've still been able to find time to read every day, so I can't wait to dig into these.
Angus, thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison. When I got this, I couldn't wait. I ripped the package open and started reading immediately. After twenty-four hours, I'd finished the book, and a review will come in a couple weeks. (I'm getting super back-logged when it comes to reviews!) But let me just say that this book is HILARIOUS and I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in the series. Oh, and I'll be sure to give my copy away to someone deserving for Christmas! :)
Teen Angst? Naaah... A Quasi-autobiography by Ned Vizzini. You know those books that you think will kind of suck but you read anyway 'cause they're sort of right there? This was one of them, but trust me, it's amazing and worth the read. After the first couple pages, I was completely hooked, and now I can't put it down! It's witty and real and honest and funny.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovannof. I have been waiting for this book for a billion years. I saw the cover ages ago and just KNEW I had to read it, so I quickly put it on my to-read list. Then I saw the trailer, squealed, saw the release day, and screamed in horror. But the weeks passed, and I reserved it. Two days later, I got an email informing me that the book is too new to reserve, so I had to wait three agitating weeks.
And it finally came. The cover is as shiny and beautiful and wonderful as it seemed!
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger. Yes, that does say THE DUFF! When I held it in my hand, I nearly died. This is another one I've been waiting to read for a long time, and I sure hope it lives up to the hype!
Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin. I haven't heard the greatest things about this book, but it seems interesting so I suppose I might give it a try. Anyway, sometimes it's the books you have the lowest expectations for that really rock your world.
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon. The first time I saw the cover, it didn't seem particularly enticing to me, but the synopsis was intriguing, so I reserved it. I haven't read very many reviews of this, but they appear to be mostly positive, so I hope this is a good one!
