Katya's World by Jonathan L. Howard
October 2012 from Strange Chemistry
Sci-fi thriller from a new to me author and pub - looking forward to reading this one.

Won:
ARC of Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
Won this one from EpicReads.com - if you haven't checked it out, you should! Been hearing nothing but good things about it so my hopes are high :)

Gifts:
My wonderful friend Nikki let me paw through some boxes of books she needed to clear from her shelves. How could I not take some home?! Thanks Nikki :)
*So Many Boys (The Naughty List #2) by Suzanne Young

*Where The Truth Lies by Jessica Warman
*Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
*The Bridge To Never Land (Peter and the Starcatchers #5) by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry

Bought:
WAY TOO MANY BOOKS!
*Sleuth or Dare books 2 and 3 by Kim Harrington -- Supper cute middle grade mystery series that I've read and loved!

*Faery Tales and Nightmares by Melissa Marr -- I *might* already own this as an e-book but I really wanted to see this gorgeous cover on my shelf with all my other Marr books

*Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis -- This one came highly recommended from another lover of middle grade reads

*Chime by Franny Billingsley -- If you liked The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab, you might just love this one as well. Love the new paperback cover too.

*I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga -- I might have to take a pic of the hardcover of this one for you guys later- the graphics under the dust jacket are awesome.

*Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo -- Read and LOVED this one! (check out my review)

*Blood Moon (Drake Chronicles #5) by Alyxandra Harvey -- GASP! More Drake boys! Probably my most favorite vampire series right here :)

I'm addicted to James Patterson's YA series in Manga!
*Witch and Wizard: The Manga Vol 1 and 2 by James Patterson
*Daniel X: The Manga Vol 3 by James Patterson

*Exposed by Kimberly Marcus -- A moving contemp told in verse. Read it already and it was fabulous.

*The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder -- Another verse book. Had to get this one after reading and loving Lisa's Chasing Brooklyn


*This Dark Endeavor  by Kenneth Oppel -- A Frankenstein prequel? Yes please!

*The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee -- Love that cover! Totally an impulse buy but I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Ok - that's it! (for now ;)
