Frankie, Paradise, Katherines, Fade, Maybe, and Beautiful? Plus a ton of Shannon Hale, master of the retell?! What an incredible week.

Chicklish said...

Oh, you have so many books there I'm dying to read, especially An Abundance of Katherines and Two-Way Street.

I have The Declaration on my to-be-read pile too.

I'm really looking forward to hearing your opinion on all of these. Happy reading!

Steph Su said...

Goodness, can you get any luckier than getting such a colorful and wonderful pile of books? The spines of those Shannon Hale books look different than the ones I own, but I'm sure they're just as pretty. :)

I looooved Goosegirl - and it's one of the books I didn't want to read until a friend forced me too (well, left the book at my house and then I went and broke my toe and couldn't leave the house for a week and so I read everything under the sun). I am envious of the massive amounts of Hale you got!

Bookworm said...

Oh, wow! Great books you got there (:
SOOOOO jealous about HOTTIE, it looks AMAZING! Artichoke's Heart was also really good! (;

Erika Lynn said...

There are so many great books there. I can't wait to see what you think of North of Beautiful, it is such an amazing book!

Lenore said...

Great books! Can't wait to see what you think of The Declaration. I have the sequel waiting for me.

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

You had a great week. And yay for Two-Way Street, it's brilliant!

H said...

You got all the Shannon Hales! (almost) If I hadn't already got them I would be very jealous of you... although I am jealous you've got the beautiful new cover versions. Are they from Bloomsbury?

prophecygirl said...

Yeah H they are. The covers are so nice!

H said...

They're beautiful. You got a good selection this week :)

I'm totally digging the new covers for the Shannon Hale books. I need to get those for our library. I can guarantee circulation will increase. I loved the E. Lockhart book - it needs a new cover and title though! Works for me but I have to hand it to students, they look right over it! Can't wait to see what you think of it!
