I received a copy of The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness, sequel to The Knife of Never Letting Go. It came with a note that suggested the use of nefarious means just to get this title on my desk! I was just talking about needing this book last week. It's slated to be a trilogy and the first one ended on a cliff-hanger. So great to get back into that world.
I also received Libba Bray's newest, Going Bovine, which I mentioned like 3 posts ago. It is really different from her Gemma Doyle trilogy, and will be a fun and funny read.
And, Harlequin publishing sent me two of their new teen imprint titles, My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent and Intertwined by Gena Showalter. They look great and the packaging is very attractive. I'm very impressed by their new line of books for teens which attempts to capture the integrity of books like Twilight, Hunger Games and The Book Thief (from their website).
Oh yeah, Frank Portman's newest, Andromeda Klein also arrived for me! It was no longer available as a galley, so I got the real thing, a big beautiful hardcover. King Dork was so awesome, I can't wait to get into this one. Especially with this blurb: "Andromeda Klein is a quiet, booky girl with an unexciting life". That's me, That's ME!
Except this week, which was hugely exciting.
I was thinking that I need a day off just to have a mini reading marathon. I have a bunch of great material here. My favourite thing to do is sit in a coffee shop and read. A little cliche, but it keeps me focused. Plus coffee, yum.
