Extra! Extra! Trends and Treats

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. 


GIVEAWAYS:

For Freebie Friday, I'm giving away an ARC of A Mad, Wicked Folly. Open to US residents! If you're international, you can enter Hot Off the Presses.

NEW BOOKS:

I got two new approvals on NetGalley :) Thanks to Disney-Hyperion and Scholastic for these!

Very excited for Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott. I've been an Amazing Race fan for decades!

And don't you love this cover for The Hunt (Paper Doll Project #2) by Stacey Kade?

BLOG NEWS:

On Thursday I introduced a new blog feature, Trending Thursday. Every week (I hope!) I'll pick a YA trend and we can discuss. This past week was lots of fun as we discussed popular (overused?) YA character names and I made some predictions for 2014. Check it out!


I'll be participating in the Romance Is In the Air giveaway hop, starting February 8! I'm making lists of romantic books right now..

That's it for me. What's new with you? Tell me in comments and leave me a link so I can visit you back!

  2. Very curious to how you'll like Fire & Flood. I've not requested The Hunt from NG...I should probably do that. Excited to hear your thoughts on both of these books.

  3. I love the cover for The Hunt-much more interesting to me than the first book's-probably because there's a pretty dress and I can never resist that :)

  7. I still haven't read the first book in Kade's series so I'm not requesting that one. I need to get to my copy of Fire & Flood...I kind of adore the author but I also love the sense of humor she infuses into her books. Hope there's more of the same in this one. :)

    1. Definitely give it a try -- I wasn't sure about it and ended up enjoying it!

    2. I think I tried to pick it up after a really bad book hangover, and had a hard time getting into it so I put it back on the shelf, but I do plan on giving it another try! Just not after a major book hangover HAHA :)

  10. Oh, that giveaway hop sounds fun! I might have to participate in that. I got Fire & Flood too... that one looks really good. And, I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of those new covers for Kade's books. :/ Maybe they'll grow on me.

    1. I like the new covers better -- I'm not such a fan of huge faces on covers. Sorry you're not a fan of the change :(

  11. I have the first Made book on my Kindle, but never got to it. The series sounds really interesting. I hope you love your new reads!
