Isn’t he an adorable distraction?  Now back to talking books:

Stacking the Shelves

ARCs for Review!

Can’t Look Away by Donna Cooner: I read and enjoyed Skinny, and I got to meet the author, so of course I want to try her latest!

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios:  I’ve been reading a lot of hype about this one.

Half Wild by Sally Green: Another one I’ve read a lot of hype about.

Paperweight by Meg Haston

The Improbable Theory of Ana & Zak by Brian Katcher: I love reading Brian’s reviews of YA books on www.foreveryoungadult.com, and am hopeful that his book is just as fun!

The Porcupine of Truth by Bill Konigsberg:  Totally judging this book by it’s cover.  I love porcupines and the cover is adorbs.

Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little: Another author I’ve met, and so I totally have to try her book!

The Revelation of Louisa May by Michaela MacColl:  a book about an author of books?  Yes, please!

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins:  Can you believe I haven’t started this trilogy yet?  *hangs head in shame*  Maybe having an ARC of the third book will motivate me.

Finding Paris by Joy Preble:  Even though I had a few qualms about The Sweet Dead Life, I did enjoy the tone.  So I’m hopeful I’ll like Finding Paris.

Emancipated by M.G. Reyes:  Emancipated teens… this is a new book topic to me!  Excited to try it.

Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton

The Cage by Megan Shepherd:  LOVE LOVE LOVE her Madman’s Daughter trilogy; excited to try her new project!

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd:  I’m getting my own copy of this, so I’ll pass along this ARC to “my” teens at the library.

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman:  a book about a teen with mental illness, with illustrations by the author’s son, who struggles with mental illness.  Of course I’m going to support this!

The Baby Sitters Club: Kristy’s Great Idea adapted by Raina Telgemeier: I LOVED these books as  kid!  I’m SUPER excited to revisit them in graphic novel format!

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia:  Totally grabbed this because of the GORGEOUS cover.  I want to frame it as wall art!

A Gift!

On my personal blog, Marie’s Reads, I’m doing Popsugar’s 2015 Reading Challenge.  One of the goals is to read a book with antonyms in the title.  My super aunt sent me this book to fulfill that goal!  Thank you!

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!

    What a cute doggy ^^ I had to find my cats new families because my youngest is allergic. I miss having a furry friend 🙁

    Your new puppy is ADORABLE! We only have a cat here, however a family friend is visiting and he has his Shih-tzu/miniature long haired dachshund here while visiting. She is a hoot. It’s fun to watch my cat and her play, they love each other.

    Also – HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE! <3

    I’ve heard that the Isla books are wonderful. I think I need to add those to my reading list for 2015. Also, I watched a BBC documentary about Alan Turing last night. I still want to go see the new movie, but haven’t been able to find time for it.

    Lots of good books you’ve got there! (And the puppy is cute, too.)
