I had a small but lovely week this time in terms of book load!
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger. I was super pumped to get this one, since I really enjoyed reading THE DUFF by the same author, not to mention that the cover is very cool. I like the intense expression on the girl's face, as well as the face paint with the tag line written in it. The summary also sounds quite interesting, and I'm looking forward to a read with Kody Keplinger's unflinching portrayal of teenage sexuality.
The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. The interesting thing about this book is that I actually read the first draft quite a while ago. I used to be an active member of inkpop, and Leigh Fallon and I read each others' works. Since I remember liking the first draft so much, I'm eager to pick up the actual polished version of it and see how it's progressed.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. I haven't heard too much about this but it looks quite interesting! Typically, I'm not a big reader of fantasy, but the summary sounds intriguing so I'm definitely willing to give this a try. Once I got it, I scanned some reviews and was pleased to see that many people had positive things to say about it.
That's it for me this week! What did you get in your mailbox?
