New books!

I Swear by Lane Davis
Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson

New Winners!

Winner of this week's Freebie Friday was....

Donna ... who chose the Carnival of Souls ARC!


And don't forget to enter to win one of three great new YA releases in my stop on the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop!

What Happened on the Blog this past week?

I reviewed Something Strange and Deadly -- and wanted more zombies? What?????

I reviewed Defiance -- and prompted a conversation in comments about the LOST smoke-monster. What was that thing, anyway?

What's up for next week?

Reviews of The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna and I Swear (see above).

Hope you'll stop by!

Tell me what you're up to in comments or leave me a link to your post!

  2. Confessions of a Murder Suspect is already out?!? Ahh, can't wait! Read an excerpt of it from Nevermore, and I gotta say, it sounds really cool! And its cover is pretty kickass! ;)

    And congrats to Donna! Hmm... hopefully that ARC of Throne of Glass will be up for grabs in next week's FF too! :D

    And what was that LOST smoke-monster? I don't remember anymore... I watched the entire series- except the last season where all questions were answered! *facepalm*

    1. I think the Patterson book comes out later in September. His other YA series was not my kind of thing, but I've loved his mysteries, so I'm excited to give this a try!

  5. I'm currently reading Throne of Glass-was hating the MC (copy too far away to confirm spelling of her name) and somehow have grown to have some sympathy for her! How did that happen? Not sure. I'm not loving it as much as I wanted to but I think I have a lot of thoughts to share when I write my review. I'm also really excited for Labor Day tomorrow when I'm having my own mini-readathon!

  9. I've never heard of I Swear before, but it looks good. I usedto be a fan of Patterson's Maximum Ride series, but quit. I'm looking forward to see what readers think of this new series. I hope you enjoy the books!

  15. I am DEFINITELY going to have to check out Something Strange and Deadly -- it looks great!

  16. I've never heard of those books. Glad to hear you are loving Lost Girl! I love Sean! I had a dream last night about the Carnival of Souls book. I was trying to order the audio book online but couldn't find it in my dream. I am hoping to get the audio book from the library since Spike from Buffy is the narrator so I guess my dream self really wanted that book.

    1. OMG -- the pressure. Now I have to think of something intelligent to say.

      Delete
    2. After re-reading my posts, most of which ramble and are missing important letters and words- There can be no pressure for intelligence from me. Some squeeing from you during your review, maybe :)

    3. What? You left one letter off. You should see what autocorrect and fast typing do to some of my comments! They're complete gibberish sometimes...
