Extra Extra 6

Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is a new-ish weekly post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's new on the blog.
To read about the inspiration behind my blog features, click the highlighted text.

Today I'm trying out linking to Stacking the Shelves at Tynga's Reviews. Check out the great blogs that have posted their Sunday news over there....

WHAT'S NEW IN MY TBR PILE?



Two new ARCs: 
Smashed by Lisa Luedeke
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Both of these look super-cool and edgy! Click the highlighted titles to check them out on Goodreads.




And now, without further delay, here are the answers to the "Which of this six things did Adrian Ivashkov really say? 



If you missed my quiz, here it is again. It originally ran with my Golden Lily review. If you missed that, click on that highlighted text to the left.


Adrian really said some the following quotes in The Golden Lily. Others were made up by me. Can you guess which are which?


A: "I've been known to roll the dice now and then."

B: "Sage, your new boyfriend is so excruciatingly polite he must be a serial killer."

C: "Slushes. Do you know how much I love those? Cherry, especially."

D: "Believe it or not, I do think some women should keep their clothes on."

E: "I find prostitutes vastly important."

F:  "I absolutely deny requesting a pirate tattoo. Because I already have one."

Answer: Adrian really said A, C and E. I made up the others. Heh heh.

What's coming up next week on the blog?

Monday: I'm joining If You Like Again and we're talking mermaid books. I know we have a lot of mermaid fans out there, so come join us!

Tuesday: Another exciting installment of Hot Off The Presses: New YA Releases May 29-June 4. We have another blockbuster release week. Come check it out so you don't miss anything!

  10. I got Pushing the Limits too and I'm really excited about it-it looks so good and just in general I enjoy Harlequin Teen books.

    I'm currently reading Transcendence by CJ Omololu, which is just starting to delve into some reincarnation stuff. I'm looking forward to learning more.
