Book Haul, or the One with the Missing Package
This week has been a rough one for me. I suffered through the most tragic of first world book blogger problems: a lost package. With a BOOK inside it. A book that is now floating somewhere in UPS limbo, trying to find its way home to me. *sniff*
With any luck the package--which was mistakenly mis-addressed by one tiny number, meaning UPS had no idea who I was any longer--will appear. In the meantime, here are this week's other goodies:
Received for review:
From Harper via Edelweiss:
The Fall by Bethany Griffin
I wasn't totally thrilled with Griffin's first retelling, The Masque of the Red Death, but I LOVED The Fall of the House of Usher as a kid and can't wait to see how she twists my favorite Poe story.
Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White
OMG YES LOOK AT THE COVER SO PRETTEH crap why am I downloading another September review title CRAP
Most of you probably heard the incredibly sad news that Strange Chemistry, a truly outstanding YA imprint, is no more. I really wanted to show my support and buy all the books from them that I was meaning to read (plus they always had amazing covers).
The Wizard's Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke
The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke
The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare by MG Buehrlen
Shadowplay by Laura Lam
Cracked by Eliza Crewe
That's it for me this week! Now let's see if that missing package ever decides to arrive...
