A Good Week in Books (16)


My book haul is a little light this week, but still really good. I only have 3 new books this week, but they are all books I’m really excited for reading! I was gifted one book, I won another book, and I received one new one from Net Galley. I have some pre-orders coming next week.
And I’m also attending a giant, wonderful Harry Potter Conference (Leaky Con) next week. I’m not sure if there will be books there, but I can guarantee you I will find them if they are there! So, next week seems a little more promising. I did sign up for the lit days at the conference, which feature some of my all time favorite people: John Green, Hank Green, Lev Grossman, Maureen Johnson, Amanda Hocking, Holly Black, Stephanie Perkins, Laini Taylor, Megan Whalen Turner, Robin Wasserman, Margaret Stohl, and more…There will be a lot of pictures coming soon!

But, back to this week, I got The Enchanted Truth by Kym Petrie (9/18/12) from Net Galley. I won an ARC of Drain You by M. Beth Bloom from Epic Reads. And I received The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern as a gift. (Technically, this one is adult and I don’t ever really mention adult books much on this blog, but I feel this is definitely one of those YA-Adult crossover books that a lot of teens read, so I probably will review it here at some point. It looks so amazing!) Thank you, Greenleaf Book Group and Harper Teen!

  1. The Night Circus is wonderful! It's definitely a crossover, so I think you could totally post a review of it here :)

    Have a great time at LeakyCon! I'm so jealous (and I want a full report, lady!)

  3. I feel like I would hate Drain You, but I hope you enjoy it. Heather loved The Night Circus, but I know a lot of the bloggers I follow loathed it. Good luck!
