In My Mailbox/Blog Announcements

Tune in to get a glimpse of what to expect review-wise on the blog. We got some fun new galleys and --even better--a lot of doubles, which means giveaways galore! Let us know what you're excited to read. Also, we have a fun guest blog post coming from Erica Lucke Dean, a fellow critique partner who is getting her book pubbed. Yesterday, we had one from Travis Heermann, who blogged about writing from the opposite gender's point of view. Check 'em out and let us know what you think! 

*it's always depressing when you can't keep it under 10 minutes

  1. Oooh, lots of pretties there! There are quite a few I'm excited for, but I'm especially looking forward to The Distance Between Us, In the After, and How to Love. They sound so good! :)

    1. I'm very excited for How to Love as well! Should be good--something a little different!

  2. wow so many great ARCs I can't wait for all the upcoming posts!

    1. Ohhh yes! Can't wait to see what you think as well!

  3. The one I'm most looking for wasn't shown in the video, but its Blackout by Robison Wells.
    I had a lot of fun reading Robison Well's Variant (one of my favorite reads last summer)--enough to skip homework to read its sequel Feedback. Feedback was not as great as I hoped, mostly because of its end (or the lack of one.) But I am still interested to see what he comes up with next in Blackout.

    I am looking for The End Games review. I've seen some buzz about it around the blogs.

    And I LOVE the cover of Linked as well. I swear that book was originally supposed to be released this Spring. Do I have poor memory or did they change the release date? O_O

    1. We actually did show Blackout AND we have a double (hurrah!) so we'll let you know if we do a giveaway for it. If you read it before us, let us know what you think! =)

      Hmm, good question I'm not sure! It only recently came to my attention. But good news is that it's only 2 months away! June 11 is the date it says on Goodreads, the date it says on the ARC is June 11 as well, so hopefully that is the date!

  4. My goodness, that is one huge pile of books! I think it's cool that the two of you are doing a mini book club for Renegade! I hope you enjoy it :0)

    I don't know if you girls have read Hemlock yet, but it is one of my favorite werewolf stories, and I think you'll really enjoy it. I cannot wait for Thornhill! Looking forward to Amanda's review of The Distance Between Us! I'm really excited for that one, as well :0)


Thank you for visiting our blog and reading this review. We hope you stop by the store and check out the book!
