Week to Come 13JAN13

So I went to Disneyland for the weekend and am thus a bit behind on comments. Hoping to catch up when I return tonight! In the meantime...

Last week, I had a full week of reviews but I just wanted to highlight my personal favorite book from the week. It was one that doesn't seem like one I'd like, Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool. Check it out!

This week, I have lots of ARC reviews so you can start planning your book buying...unless you've already blown your budget ;) 2013 started out strong.

First up is Summerset Abbey by TJ Brown, an adult Downton-Abbey-esque story with YA crossover potential.

Next up is two very different ballet books:

Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black has a killer cover and inserts a paranormal twist.

Dancing in the Dark by Robyn Bavati-this features an orthodox Jewish girl defying her family to pursue her passion for dance.

The Wrap-Up List by Steven Arntson-intriguing concept focusing on death and friendship

Nobody But Us is the debut title from YA Highway contributor Kristin Halbrook, which means that I've had my eye on it for a long time. Did it live up to my expectations?

The Paladin Prophecy by Mark Frost is a 2012 YA fantasy that I don't think received much buzz in the blogosphere but which I really enjoyed.

What are you up to this weekend? Happy reading :)


  1. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Summerset Abbey. I am planning to read it soon. I hope you had fun at Disneyland. I've never been to either Disney theme park.

  2. Hope you had a great time at Disneyworld!! I'm off to check out your favorite review of the week.

  3. Hope you had fun in Disneyland :) I love that picture you posted (she's my favorite Disney princess). Looking forward to your reviews of Summerset Abbey and The Paladin Prophecy especially!

  4. Yay! Disneyland!

    Also I'm curious for your thoughts on Nobody But Us, I have that on my TBR for this month and am looking forward to it.

  5. I hope you like Nobody but Us. I'm starting to feel nervous about that one.
    And I didn't realize there were two Downton books coming out. I'm glad there are readalikes because wish I liked season three of the show more...

  6. Looks like we have lots in store for this week. I have nothing planned. :-(

  7. Lucky you, going to Disneyland! That's very exciting. You have quite a bit coming up this week...I need to plan out my week a bit because I start school and work Tuesday so I might have limited computer time. Sigh.

    I'm curious about The Wrap-Up list!

  8. I haven't read Summerset Abbey, but I did just read Cinders and Sapphires which sounds very similar. Sounds like 1910-20's historical fiction is on the rise! I love it!

  9. I miss going to Disney. We lived about on an hour away from Disney in Florida. Hope oyu had a blast.
