Extra! Extra! Happy New Year!

Extra! Extra!

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

This weekend I'm linking to Stacking the Shelves @ Tynga's Reviews or to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 

I took last weekend off, so Happy 2014 to everyone!

As part of a promotional tour, Little, Brown has generously offered me a finished copy of Roomies by Tara Altebrando and Sara Zarr to give to a US resident. Come check out the post, see where Tara and Sara (cute!) are touring, and tell me your best roomie story!

  1. I'm very interested in what your opinion of Don't Look Back will be. I didn't request it but will read it if the reviews come back good. I was so excited when Rebel went up to download :-) Have a great week!

    1. I've only read one other JLA book, so I will see!
      Also very excited about Rebel (I have to remember to say ReBEL not REbel because I think she must be going for a pattern there.)

  2. Awesome list. Curious as to what you will think of The Art of Lainey, Awesome haul of books.

    1. I hope Lainey decides the guy isn't worth getting back :)

  3. Insanity I didn't get, but I got the other four from Edelweiss. I was hoping to get a ton of reading done this week, but it became much busier than I thought it would be. I joined the Roomies giveaway too. I jumped on that chance because things like that don't come very often and you liked that one - it's sitting here waiting for me to read, so hopefully I'll get to it before the giveaway ends. :)

    Here's my STS.

  4. Happy New Year! Don't Look Back looks intriguing. I haven't read anything by the author, but I know she has a huge following. The Art of Lainey looks fun, too. Great haul!

  9. I took advantage of the Harper Teen EW drop, too, but I got totally different books! I did get a copy of Insanity though, and I am SO excited for that one. I love a good scary story. :)

    1. Ha -- I did get a lot of contemporaries, and I haven't been a huge fan of some of the Harper contemporaries lately, so hope I love them :)

  10. 17 first kisses is definitely going on my tbr shelf. I'll probably pick up Don't Look Back too when it comes out because JLA is amazing. I'm not sure about the Art of Lainey though. Why would you try to win someone back who breaks up with you for no reason?

    1. That is a very good question and I hope she decides she doesn't want him back. Or that he had a very good reason...

  11. Happy new year to you too! Don't Look Back looks absolutely awesome, I can't wait to read that one! I didn't know Reboot #2 was coming out, I hope the 2nd is better than the first.

    1. I liked Reboot, but am hoping that Rebel isn't one of those "on the run" plots...

  12. I got quite a few of those for review as well (I actually downloaded 25 books from Edelweiss this week!) The great looking books are really helping me to get excited about writing reviews again so hopefully I'll feel more positive about blogging this year unlike my doldrums at the end of 2013.
