Extra! Extra! How Can it be August Already??

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've been anticipating Cat Winters' new book since I read and loved In the Shadow of Blackbirds.
Thanks, Abrams, for sending me A Cure For Dreaming, which comes out October 2014!

I've been trying hard not to request any new books because -- holy moly! -- there are a lot of September review books on my shelves and Kindle. Must get reading!!


Which of these should I read next???

Heir of Fire Anatomy of a Misfit The Jewel


Reviews of some scary/thrilling YA -- Feral by Holly Schindler, Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz, and Forget Me by K. A. Harrington....


  1. August.... this whole year has flown by!I received The Cure for Dreaming this week as well! It made my day!

    And I think you should read Heir of Fire so we can chat about it. I'll be starting it later this afternoon! Although, The Jewel is coming up soon for me too and it looks so amazing!

  2. Great haul Jen! All of these books look amazing! You should definitely read Anatomy of a Misfit, it looks great and love the cover!

    Happy Reading

  3. Loved The Cure for Dreaming and Cat's debut was amazing, too! Wasn't a big fan of The Jewel, though.

  4. Heir of Fire! I'm really looking forward to September!!

  5. I've heard amazing things about Heir of Fire. I'm really looking forward to The Jewel, but haven't heard anything about it yet. They both look awesome though!

  6. I know I am so sad it is already August! I DNF Throne of Glass but when you do read Heir of Fire I want to know if she ends up with Chaol or Prince Dorian. Although I heard there will be six books in the series now so maybe it will be that long till she settles down. That was the only thing I was interested in during that series and I want her to get with Dorian. LOL Also read Jewel because I'm really curious about that one. Heard some good things. The cover did kind of turn me off just because it kind of looks like The Selection which wasn't a very good series in my opinion but maybe Jewel will be different.

  7. Heir of Fire! It's so much more than I was expecting. I honestly can't wait until it releases to be able to discuss all of the THINGS and FEELINGS openly with people.

  8. I have The Cure for Dreaming and it just looks so interesting. I'm hoping I'll find it to be really good.

    Umm. Is there really any question what book you should read next??? Heir of Fire definitely has my vote. I have to wait for release day for that one and I'm dying to see what you think. :)

  9. Oooh definitely read Heir of Fire, I've read it and it's awesome! although I did enjoy the past 2 books a bit more.

    Here's my STS this week.

  10. I have read The Jewel and it was really good. Not perfect but generally I enjoyed it. I cannot wait to get my hands of Heir of Fire. I need that awesomeness! Great post, Jen :)

  11. Great haul! I have Jewel and Anatomy of a Misfit as well. I can't wait to read both of them! A Cure for Dreaming sound really good. Enjoy!!

  12. I've heard a lot of things about Cat Winters and I am planning on trying her stuff out soon! :)

    I know right??? There are SOO many books coming out in September that I am putting off requesting books off of NG and EW for a while, I am just making a list of stuff I want to request later to satisfy myself :P

    Also I think you should read Heir of Fire next :D Especially if you're a fan of the series. I actually never read past book 1 but plan to continue someday :P

    Anyway I hope you have a happy week of reading, Jen!! :)

  13. Misfit, I haven't heard much about it!

  14. I have yet to read beyond Throne of Glass although I've been hearing great things about its successors. The Jewel and Misfits look good too! I hope you enjoy these. Have a great week!

  15. I think you should read Heir of Fire. I haven't read Throne of Glass yet (I know, I'm crazy) but I just know I'll like it when I do. Plus, that cover! So amazing :)

  16. Right?? I almost can't believe it's August already. I have to get reading on my September ARCs too...there's so many. It'll take me such a long time to read them all. At least they look really good, though. :)

    You should read Heir of Fire next. I still have to read it (and Feral--I'm looking forward to your review on that one).

  17. I'm taking it slow for August. Kevin's off and I'm caught up on review books (not BEA books) so I'm just reading for fun!

  18. Nice!!! I can't wait to read The Cure for Dreaming. I think I would go with Anatomy of a Misfit to read next. :)

  19. Cure For Dreaming!! So excited for that novel.

    My vote goes for Heir of Fire! I've heard it's an outstanding follow-up to Crown of Midnight!

    Enjoy your books :D

  20. I'm interested in what you think of The Jewel. I only had 1 review book for August, but I have a crapload of September releases. I keep a schedule near me at all times so I don't go crazy with the arc requests.

  21. I haven't heard of these books, so I don't know which one you should read next. Just pick one depending on your mood. That's what I always do. Anyway, happy reading, Jen!

  22. I just read The Jewel last night and love it! Can't wait to see what you think of it.

  23. What to read next?? Heir of Fire for suuuure!! I cannot wait till my preorder finally arrives!! =D
    And yeah, The Cure For Dreaming... so very excited for that one too!


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll leave me a comment. I read and appreciate each and every one and try my best to reply. Leave me a link to your blog or website!
