In My Mailbox (16)

After our brief hiatus while my computer decided to die on me, Book Brats is (mostly) back! Coming soon - more reviews, more weirdness, more...something. Oh, and I will be participating in a giveaway hop starting on Tuesday. Be warned.

Anyway, this week was a WONDERFUL week for my mailbox - another great one! And I somehow managed to not buy anything. Gasp! Well, I bought myself a coffee table book for Christmas, but that doesn't count. Pop inside and see what came this week! It's very YA heavy this week!


SLIDE by Jill Hathaway
Releases March 27, 2012 from Balzer + Bray
246 Pages // ARC
Received from Publisher
I love a good speculative fiction murder mystery, so this sounds like it will be up my alley. Thanks to HarperCollins for providing this! Look for a review in March.

PARTIALS (Partials #1) by Dan Wells
Releases February 28th, 2012 from Balzer + Bray
472 Pages // ARC
Received from Publisher
Another book received from HarperCollins, PARTIALS is the type of book I die for - post-apocalyptic, genetic engineering, end of humanity. I kill for that type of book, so I can't wait to dive into this one. Look for my review in February!


ARTICLE 5 (Article 5 #1) by Kristen Simmons
Releases January 31, 2012 from Tor Teen
384 Pages // ARC

Thanks so much to Kristen for the contest that let me win this! As you might remember, it was one of my WoW books a few weeks ago, and now I have my very own signed ARC. Cannot wait to dive into this!

DANCERGIRL (WiHi #1) by Carol Tanzman
Published November 15, 2011 by Harlequin TEEN
248 Pages // Paperback
Received via contest/publisher
I believe I won this as part of the DANCERGIRL blog tour. I think. If anyone has actually seen my name as a winner, or if I won it via your blog, let me know! I want to thank you! And thanks to Harlequin TEEN :D


BORN WICKED (Cahill Witch Chronicles #1) by Jessica Spotswood
Releases February 7th, 2012 by Putnam Juvenile
326 Pages // ARC
Received via trade
So I sent my ARCs of COLD KISS and TEMPEST to the darling Andi of Rywn (one of my fave bloggers) and in return I got this. Cannot. Wait.

DRAGONSWOOD by Janet Lee Carey
Releases January 5, 2012 by Penguin Young Readers Group
416 Pages // ARC
Received via trade
With BORN WICKED was this. I love a good fantasy story, and dragons? DRAGONS?! Of course I wanted this. Hopefully I will get a chance to read it soon.


UNDER THE NEVER SKY (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi
Releases January 3rd, 2012 from HarperCollins
384 Pages // eARC
Received via NetGalley
After I was declined a second time for Everneath, I was surprised to get approved for UNDER THE NEVER SKY. Although I'm wary of the hype surrounding this one (hype and me are like a cat versus a bucket of water - imagine the consequences), I am looking forward to reading it. Especially if it's as much like Final Fantasy as someone told me, LOL.

So that's it. Let me know what you got this week and I will try and comment on as many blogs as possible. In writing news, I have started edits on my Camp NaNoWriMo manuscript again. Hopefully another draft will be done with the correct ending and we can get this baby all sparkly and polished and full of hot men. Well, teenage boys. They're all 28 in my head, haha.
