What I Got #27 (Tiff is AWESOME)

What I Got is a weekly meme hosted by Monica over at Cover Analysis :) 
From Library:
I LOVED Amy & Roger's Epic Detour. So I'm hoping I love this one, too! Though I do have doubts as to whether I'll love it as much...but we'll see!
Laurie Faria Stolarz is awesome. I've read ALMOST all her books. All except for three, to be exact. And that's soon to be two. And then one. And then...yeah. I love this series. I THINK I might be Team Adam...don't hold me to that, though. I'm not sure at all with these books. But Adam seems nicer...
Funny thing, The Statisical Probability of Love at First Sight actually was NOT the first book I read by this author. I thought it was. But it wasn't. You Are Here actually was. I loved that one, too. But ANYWAY, this author is great. Her writing style is something some people complain about, but I love how different it is. So I'm glad my school library had this! OH, and baseball. I adore baseball.
The Star Child & The Fallen Stars by Stephanie Keyes
Y'all know the YA Scavenger Hunt, right? And how a lot of the authors have their own little giveaways for it? Well, I won on Stephanie Keyes' blog! I actually only won one signed book, but then we were talking and she sent me the second one, too, and I shall review them both. So sometime, you will see that. I was glad to see the swag, too! My mom LOVED when I get magnets. And I have somebody who wins something from me will get one sometime. Yay! THANK YOU SO MUCH to Stephanie for being so nice and sending me the signed books and adding some swag, which I always love to get. *hugs!*
OH, AND LOOK AT MY PANDAS! I heart my pink PJ pants. Aren't they great?
For Review (Print):
For the record, I am aware there are extra books on the picture. But I'm fairly certain we've all established that I'm lazy, so I think we should all just be glad I took a picture at all. Instead of, like, going to sleep or something. 'Cause I sure do love my sleep. Except for when I should be sleeping. I only love sleep when I'm supposed to be awake, apparently. My sleep schedule is so messed up. And OHMYGOSH, THIS IS SO NOT THE POINT. The Charge. It's by a local author and it's in a local setting and the premise seemed really cool so I am completely excited to read this one. Sometime. I really hope I can get to it soon. *fingers crossed* And thank you to Sharon for sending it to me! It got here SO. QUICK.
**From this point on, just click on the book cover to go to the Goodreads page**
For Review (Ebook):
Promises (Syrenka, #1) Winter Queen (Fairy Queens, #1) 
Promises by Amber Garr
Tiff gave this to me for a guest review on her blog during Mermaids & Myths month on her blog in May. Why? Because Tiff is AWESOME. I'll let you know more about the whole guest review thing when it gets closer. But this book has a love triangle, and I'm pretty sure I'm already in love with the losing boy, but the book looks good anyway! So yay! THANK YOU SO MUCH, TIFF!
Winter Queen by Amber Argyle
I find it funny how both of these books have authors named Amber...ha. ANYWAY, This book just seems downright cool. I'm hoping to read this sometime to mix it up a bit from the usual stuff I read. Because this book is like, fairies and stuff. I think. Because I obviously have not read the book yet... Thanks so much to Amber for an advanced copy of this for review!
From NetGalley:
The Truth About You and Me The Prelude (A Musical Interlude Novel) Burning 
The Truth About You & Me by Amanda Grace
THAT COVER. How can anyone resist that? And the title. And the fact that I've read a book by this author and it was kind of reeeeally good. So I requested and was approved and shall be reading this sometime.
The Prelude by KaSonndra Leigh
So I saw this cover, clicked on it, saw it was New Adult, and requested. When I downloaded it onto my Kindle, I peeked at the beginning and I have such good tingly feelings about this one. Now I just need to find the time to read it!! Eeeep!
Burning by Elana K. Arnold
I requested this one FOREVER ago. But it sounds seriously great. So I did a little happy dance when I got the email about this one. Yay!
Their Promise 
Their Promise by Brina Courtney
Tiff gifted me this because, um, yeah. Remember that awesome thing? THAT'S WHY. This book looks so sweet, and I hear it's going to make me ugly-cry, and I'm so excited! Yes, I'm excited about ugly-crying. I'm weird like that. Tiff, THANK YOU SO MUCH, GIRL, I LUUURVE YOOOOU!
And...that's what I got this week! Well, unless I missed something...which I probably did. But that's okay. There are enough books listed here as it is.
So, tell me, y'all:
What did YOU get this week? Anything AWESOME? Anything the same as me?
Have you read anything I got? What'd you think? Help me pick what to read next!
And, if you want to be random, what song are you currently obsessed with?
(I'm currently obsessed with Battle Scars by Guy Sebastian Ft. Lupe Fiasco. And I still have a special liking for the Regina Spektor song from last week.)


  1. I didn't actually realise that Statistical Probability wasn't Jennifer E Smith's first book >..< will definately be checking out her her backlist now!

  2. Jessica, I'm so glad you got them! Enjoy! :)

  3. You got some awesome stuff! I hope you enjoy The Charge.

  4. Second Chance Summer!! I still haven't gotten a chance to read that one, so I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

    My Book Haul
