Hello all!  This is Marie, and this is my first time hosting StS!  As you can see, I get a pretty eclectic mix of books for myself, and I’m a big fan of the library.  And guess what?  Only two days until the start of Paranorm’All Hallows Eve!  Come back on Monday for the start of two weeks of extra-special posts, reviews, and giveaways!  You can read more about Paranorm’All Hallows Eve here.

Egalleys for Review:

Alone in Antarctica Felicity Aston Lost Boy Tim Green Vanishing Girls Lauren Oliver A Cold Legacy Megan Shepherd

Alone in Antarctica by Felicity Aston: a memoir by the first woman to cross Antarctica completely solo!

Lost Boy by Tim Green: I have a nephew who loves Tim Green books, and I love being able to talk to my nieces and nephews about their favorite books.

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver:  Lauren Oliver.  Need I say more?

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd: I LOVE this trilogy!  I can’t wait to see how Megan Shepherd works Frankenstein into this finale book!

New Books Purchased:

The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn

The Body Electric by Beth Revis:  I’ll be at an author event soon that includes Beth Revis, so I wanted to read her latest book beforehand!

Best Mug Cakes Ever by Monica Sweeney, Honey by Hattie Ellis, and Ovenly by Agatha Kulaga with Erin Patinkin: I love trying new recipes!

Rise of the Elgen and Battle of the Ampere by Richard Paul Evans:  these are the 2nd and 3rd books in the Michael Vey series, and I got both of these as audiobooks for my commute.

The New Prayer Shawl Companion by Janet Severi Bristow with Victoria A. Cole-Gabo: I also love to knit & crochet, and am always on the lookout for new pattern books.

That’s all for me this week!  What about you?  What great new reads are you looking forward to?

My name is Marie and I live, work, and play in NC. I'm so fortunate to have a job that is so much fun, working in Teen Services in a library. I'll give nearly any author at least one try, but my first love is YA. I've especially enjoyed all the great dystopian fiction that's come out in the last few years!

    You did get an eclectic mix of books. I have the new Tim Green on my review stack too. I love looking at cookbooks but don’t cook very often. Happy reading!

    I didn’t get many new-to-me books this week, but that’s pretty good since my TBR list is so long. I’m really enjoying participating in this meme and THANK YOU for sponsoring it.

    Honey looks like a book that I’d get a lot of use out of- It is probably my single favorite ingredient to use. Enjoy it!

    I somehow missed that The Body Electric was coming out and I really enjoyed Revis’s other series, so I’ll definitely be reading that one. Great stack this week! I hope you enjoy them all!!
