Book Roundup (15) - March 17, 2013

Merriam-Webster defines 'roundup' as a gathering in of scattered persons or things (source)

Replace 'persons or things' with 'BOOKS!' and you'll have what happens in my house every week as I try to keep control of my hoard :)

This is about a months worth. I've been pretty good about not buying too many this year - although with so many recent releases on my wishlist I can see that changing rather quickly!

Links are to Goodreads :)

Link your book haul posts in the comments if you like - I LOVE seeing everyones new beauties!


Bought:
If you haven't read (or heard of) this Scholastic Middle Grade series you need to fix that right now! 
Written in the same style of the fabulous 39 Clues series, each book is written by a different author.
And guys? It's about TIME TRAVEL! Nuf' said ;)

For Review:
March 5, 2013 from William Morrow
There are A LOT of mixed reviews about this one out there! 
It was pitched to me as a New Adult title - one of the first coming out from William Morrow. 
Vampires and romance...with more adult themes? Looking forward to trying it out!

Another new New Adult title. Early reviewers have said they thought this was an adult book but it read more like a YA novel so I'm thinking New Adult is a good fit. And - it's Dystopian! Woo hoo!

For Review:
June 11, 2013 from Henry Holt
I really enjoyed April's last suspense teen book, The Night She Disappeared so I'm really looking forward to this thriller.

For Review:
August 6, 2013 from Roaring Brook Press
A choose your own adventure, contemporary teen coming of age novel. Bet you've never read one of those before! 

For Review:
June 4, 2013 from Feiwel and Friends
An illustrated chapter book - wish there were more like this when I was a kid! I loved Ellen's The Humming Room and I don't think I'll be disappointed with this one :)

For Review:
An unofficial guide to the Hunger Games. I love Smart Pop's approach to series 'review' style books and the Hunger Games is a series I have a bit of a love / hate relationship with so this one should be interesting. 

Bought:
The last Drake Chronicles book! I don't know if I'm ready to say goodbye to the Drake boys just yet!

  1. I submitted a request for The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die yesterday, I'm really hoping to get this one! I also enjoyed The Night She Disappeared and I've heard her newest is even better.
    My Showcase Sunday!
