Extra! Extra! 19

Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is my weekly Sunday post featuring brand new additions to my TBR pile as well as a summary of what's coming up on the blog.

This Sunday I'm linking up to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and also Sundays in Bed With hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl.

New books!
Both of these will be up for grabs soon -- I'm participating in the Back to the Books giveaway hop, September 1-7.  Hope you'll come back and enter!
Sorry the photo is a little dark. They are....



Defiance by C.J. Redwine -- this is the book I'm in bed with, in case you were wondering!

Nerve by Jeanne Ryan

What reviews and special features were on the blog this week?

Monday I interviewed YA author Alyssa B. Sheinmel

Thursday I reviewed Spark by Brigid Kemmerer. Did I think this fire-themed YA was hot stuff? Click here and find out.

Saturday I reviewed Every Day by David Levithan. Regular readers know I love body-switching stories. Was this one the exception or the rule?

CONTEST WINNERS:
Veronica was the lucky winner of the box of middle grade books and ARCs in my Back to School Giveaway!

Latest Freebie Friday winners:
Jennifer V. from A New Layer of Reality chose False Memory by Dan Krokos
Sara from Forever 17 Books chose The Thing About the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt

WHAT'S UP FOR NEXT WEEK?

A review of Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. I'm anti-zombie and still on the fence about steampunk. What did I think of this zombie steampunk? You might be surprised!

Plus Heather @ Flyleaf Review and Heidi @ Bunbury In the Stacks and I are reading:



Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan -- a generation-spanning tale of selkie magic and revenge! Can't wait!

Plus the usual fun: Hot Off the Presses on Tuesday,Waiting on Wednesday and the fabulous Freebie Friday! I hope you'll try to stop by :)

  6. I can't wait to see what you think of Defiance! I can't remember, though...do you usually enjoy fantasy? Anyway, I'm really interested in The Brides of Rollrock Island. I've been contemplating it for awhile, but I think I'll wait for your review. :)

    1. I enjoy some fantasy. Books with fantasy elements, yes. High fantasy is not so much for me. So Defiance seems to be the right amount of fantasy so far!!
