From the Library:I went a little bit overboard, checking out a lot of great looking books! First up is Alexandra Robbins' The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth, a Goodreads Choice Nominee for Best Non-Fiction. While I probably won't review it on my blog (as I try to focus mostly on YA), I have high hopes as I loved her previous books Pledged and The Overachievers
Next up is a collection of Kate Beaton's hilarious cartoons, titled Hark! A Vagrant. I've read some of her cartoons but am excited to read all that is contained in this book.
third book in the Beka Cooper trilogy is out (it was actually released about a month ago but I wasn't aware). One of the hardest parts of being a Pierce fan is the LONG waits in between books. Luckily if you've never read a Pierce book, you have a great backlist waiting on you-start with the Alanna books.
Shades of Milk and Honey, an Austen-esque fantasy novel, sounds right up my alley. Can't wait to dive into this one!
With a Name Like Love has received so of course I wanted to give it a read. My hold finally arrived this week.
From Amazon Vine:I requested two amazing looking 2012 YA debuts this week (they should arrive on Monday but I want to post about them this week as I don't know if I'll do IMM next week).
First up is Article 5; I have no idea what to expect from this but I figured it was worth a shot.
The Gathering Storm, paranormal historical fiction set in Russia is a very unique premise so it will be interesting to see how Bridges pulls it off.
Won:Last, but certainly not least is another 2012 debut that I was lucky enough to win through Firstreads. Another book about which I have no expectations but hopefully will end up enjoying.
So that's my haul. How did everyone else do this week?
