This Week in Books


This week in books wasn't that plentiful...

But, it did bring me THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH, which if you know me at all, then you know I've been yearning for it since like, July. Also, needless to say, I've finished it already. And even though I'm not allowed to post my review until next month's release date, I must say this: take it from me; this book is every bit as good as it's made out to be! Truly! PLUS, it totally surprised me in wonderful way. So go pre-order it now! You will love it, TRUST ME! You have my permission to hate me if you don't (which is so not going to happen, because Carrie Ryan will totally put you under her zombie spell!).

And Need! I'm not forgetting Need! I've heard of its fabulousness, and I can't wait to read it! The cover is creepy, and glittery, quite a promising mix. Hopefully I can get to it ASAP.

ETA:

Ah, look at what I just found lurking in my mailbox! Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund! I loved Aurelia, so this is exciting!

It's been a slow week for me too- only one book so far, and then whatever comes in the mail today.

I hope to be getting Carrie's book soon- it looks amazing and now I've got your personal recommendation. I can't wait to read it!

Two good ones! And don't worry, I only got two books this week, and I bought them.

I love the cover of Academy 7. I have to do a little more research on this book, but so far I've only heard good things about it. :)

The Forest Of Hands and Teeth has been on my wishlist for forever. I can't believe you have it. Also, I'm supposed to be getting Academy 7 soon,too! I can't wait to read it.

Both great books. Loved them both. First time I've heard about Academy 7 though.

I love Anne Osterlund. I'm so jealous everyone is getting a copy of Academy 7. You'll have to make sure and review it!

Aack... I'm so jealous of the Academy 7 copy! How are you guys able to get so many good ARCs? Is it because you've had blogs for a while?
