I had a pretty good week, and I'm excited to read these books. The library haul in particular was excellent, and I did get a good handful of review books as well.


For Review:


The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab. This sounds like such a creepy, awesome story! It's described as "part fairy tale, part love story" which is right up my alley. I haven't read any reviews of this yet, but I have high expectations for it.

Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade. I read the first book, The Ghost and the Goth, a while back and really liked it, so I'm looking forward to digging into this one. All the reviews I've seen have been pretty positive.


The Cellar by A. J. Whitten. This seems way different from the average paranormal romance in that it focuses more on the creepy, scary, dangerous aspects than the I-love-you-and-I-don't-care-that-you-could-kill-me thing that I'm rather tired of. The cover is deliciously chilling as well!


Library:


Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender. I featured this a while back for Cover Love, and I'm still loving the cover! I seem to have gotten a lot of creepy books this time (I think I used the word "creepy" about four hundred times so far), which is awesome.

Accomplice by Eireann Corrigan. I'm a ninth grader and I'm already starting to feel the pressure coming with colleges, so it'll be interesting to read about just how far people will go to look good on their applications.


Looks by Madeleine George. I got this one just for the cover. It's so clever, and the summary makes it sound like a wonderful contemporary novel. I also saw it featured on someone else's blog (That Cover Girl), which, by the way, you should check out!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. I know, I know, how could I not have read this? Especially with my deep love for both these authors' works! I'm newer to Levithan than Green, but oh my God, such amazing writers.


Where the Truth Lies by Jessica Warman. I just started reading this one, and it is so gorgeous and heartbreaking. And don't you just adore the cover? It's so simple but so effective, especially with how everything is off-kilter and tilted, just like the protagonist's life.

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody. This seems like a cute, fun read with a cute, fun cover. I'll need it as a break for all this heavy-duty reading I'm doing, with all these books that are either creepy and suspenseful or sad and heartbreaking.


Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I've read mixed reviews, but when it comes right down to it, I need some straight sci-fi. I used to be so into the genre when I was little, but then not so much. Maybe I'll get back into it with this one.

That's it for me! Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? And what's in your mailbox?

The only one I've read is ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. I'm still trying to make up my mind about it. Mainly I think it was just a bit overrated. I really did enjoy it, and it was definitely a page-turner, but it wasn't *as good* as I was expecting. So maybe it had a little too much hype, and my expectations were a little too high, but I would still recommend it. A good, mysterious read. :)

Melody: I actually just finished reading it yesterday. I think if I had read only good reviews, then I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much, but I read a lot of mixed ones and so I ended up really liking it. I was only vaguely aware that it was a mystery/suspense, so I was surprised to find that element while I was reading, but definitely in a good way because I was flipping pages!

I love Will Grayson! I'm glad to hear that you're finally getting to it.
