In My Mailbox July 4th

Hello, my peeps! I got some great books this week... 5 to be exact, all from the library. And I'm super excited because Kristina Springer emailed me, and her publisher is getting her ARC's of The Espressologist... and I'M ON THE RECIEVING LIST! *SQUEALS IN EXCITEMENT* Ahem. :)

Anyways, here's my haul for July 4:

All American Girl is hilarious (what else to expect from Meg Cabot?), Wherever Nina lies looks cute and funny, haven't started If You Come Softly, but I absolute looooove how their love is described in the blurb... It's so romantic (ew, Meggin's being too sentimental ;D). Sweethearts I love (what else has Sarah Zarr written? I want to get Once Was Lost by her sooo bad when it comes out. Does anyone know the publisher's name?) Bloom? I love Elizabeth Scott's writing, but this looks a bit too chick-litty for me. I need a spin, something else besides which guy she chooses. Nothing, as far as I know, happens beyond that. Which is why I don't favor Susane Colasanti's work so much... it's all so predictable, not that they aren't aMAZING authors besides that...
Now you know what I got... everyone else?
P.S. I'm having a giveaway on here soon :) My first... look forward to it :)

Besides Sweethearts and Once Was Lost, Sara Zarr wrote Story of a Girl. I think that was the first book where I sat at B&N and read the whole thing all the way through.


Meggin said...

I was thinking Sonya Sones wrote that for some reason :P You read it all the way through?! It must have been good...?

I actually got Once Was Lost this week and I really want to read Story of A Girl. I also got Bloom and Wherever Nina Lies a couple weeks ago but I haven't read them yet. I can't wait for your reviews. =] You can check out what else was in my mailbox on my blog!

Meggin said...

Ooh, cool :) I saw what you got... I really want Bad Apple, and As You Wish :) OMG no way, you got Geektastic? I keep meaing to get an ARC of that :( You get the best books, I'm jealous! ;)

Hi Imogen- Thanks for your comment- it's okay, I write long ones too :) I'm glad you like my blog :) I saw Novel Idea's on Sarah's blog too, and you're writing is amazing, I wish I could write like you :) Congrats on the young fic writer of the year! I'll check out your other one. As for the ABCAC, I think I'd recommend most Coffeehouse Angel, if you can get it when it comes out. I LOVED it!
