Book Roundup (22) - August 18, 2013

OMG I'm back!

Can't say I really *went* anywhere except I wasn't *here* much. Just wasn't feeling it, you know?

But I'm missing it all :)

So I'm going to work blogging back into my schedule.

My normal, no drama, no frills, blogging because I love it schedule :)

Thanks to everyone who's still around reading!!

Had the urge to post today and since it's Sunday that means it's time for a much overdue Roundup!


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 :)


Pictures pictures pictures! Just show us the pictures already! :)

Here you go:

Bought:
I know I'm behind with all the latest releases sitting on my wishlist but these beauties managed to find their way into my home nonetheless

*Replica by Jenna Black
Sci-fi YA - can I get a woop woop! 
Haven't read Jenna's other YA series but I've heard good things about it.

*Gravity by Melissa West
A sci-fi blend? Dystopian maybe with a little paranormal? Not sure of all the elements in this one but  it's a 2012 debut from Entangled that's been on my wishlist a while.

*Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan
Total impulse buy today. I started Klavan's Homelander's series and enjoyed it and honestly, I was really taken with the cover of this one. Probably more Christian Fiction then I'm used to writing but the combo of elements here is really intriguing.

*Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne
So many translations of this one out there and so many of them are horrible! I'm trusting Penguin Classics on this one!
Picked it up for my daughter who, although is too young to read is convinced she will still enjoy if it's read to her (but only until she's old enough to read it herself ;)

*Glimpse by Carol Lynch Williams
Contemporary drama book full of the feelings - in verse.
Totally an impulse buy. Not a huge fan of the contemp but can't seem to pass up an even slightly interesting story if it's written in verse.

For Review / From the Publisher:
Snagged the Sanderson from a quick twitter giveaway from Eric Smith and was sent Eric's book by Quirk because Eric is awesome!

*Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
ARC - releases in September
Adult sci-fi - first in a series :)

*The Geek's Guide to Dating by Eric Smith
ARC - releases in December
PRE-ORDER THIS BOOK NOW! 
It's fabulous!

For Review / From the Publisher:
It's picture book time! These all came from the lovely folks at Macmillan and I'll be reading them soon with my daughter. Today maybe after she gets tired of Verne :)

*Cool Creations in 35 Pieces by Sean Kenney
Legos man! Who doesn't love Legos!

*When it Snows by Richard Collingridge
If it snowed every day I would be happy :)

*Princess Tales by Grace Maccarone, illustrated by Gail De Marcken
A 'Once upon a time in rhyme with see-and-find pictures'

*Big Snow by Jonathan Bean
More snow!

Well, that's it for now!

Hope you all are having a fabulous Sunday :)

  1. That's awesome that you got Steelheart! That is one I'm really intrigued about. I'm looking forwad to adding my NetGalley reads for August, sinc I actually got some read. :)
