GUYS. WE RECEIVED SO MANY BOOKS THIS WEEK.
Seriously. Every single day, I'd come home and go "Oh, my!"
(I also made a mental note to bake the UPS guy cookies. He's been here every day this week.)
Nuts to You by Lynne Rae Perkins (Greenwillow)
Love is the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson (Arthur A Levine)
I'm kind of loving the blue cover sandwich with Nuts to You in the middle. But seriously guys, how amazing are all of these covers? I'm kind of in love with the squirrels on the Nuts to You cover.
H20 (The Rain #1) by Virginia Bergin (Soucebooks)
Cheesie Mack is Sort of Freaked Out by Steve Colter and Doug Holgate (Random House BYFR)
The League of Seven by Alan Gratz; Brett Helquist (Ilust). (Tor)
Prince Harry: The People's Prince by Penny Junor (Grand Central)
(My British landlord saw it, and asked to read it)
So, I picked up League of Seven and thought "Huh, that's a really cool cover." I then realized that it was designed by Brett Helquist of Lemony Snicket fame, and realized just why I liked the cover so much. The book looks pretty darned awesome as well.
Also, you guys need to read The Only Thing to Fear. It's kind of this awesome counter-factual story of post-WWII America, with just a hint of X-Men: First Class thrown in for good measure.
The Cheesie Mack cover = hilarious and I <3 Random House for thinking of sending me books I might not have otherwise come across! Love you guys!
How gorgeous is this book? I love the sound of this story too.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvatar (Scholastic Press)
Watch Out, Hollywood!: More Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child by Maria T. Lennon (HarperCollins)
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes (Harper Children's)
Love that these four books here are a nice mix of diverse books. Cannot wait for Octobia May.
