The First to Know | Abigail Johnson
post image

This is the face of someone who's *really* excited that they just received an ARC of Abigail Johnson's new book! 'The First to Know' comes out 11/7/2017, and if you're a fan of contemporary YA, I would definitely recommend checking out Abigail's first book as well, 'If I Fix You'. (It's soooo good!) Thank you Abigail, you're the best! 😘📚

Midnight Jewel | Richelle Mead
post image

This gorgeous lady will forever be one of my favourite authors. I don't think it's fair to other authors just how well *and* how much she writes. I've yet to read a book of hers I haven't REALLY enjoyed, and I've read a *lot* of her books. If you've never read a Richelle Mead book, ask me for suggestions! She writes young adult & adult books, mostly urban fantasy. ✌🏻📚

ALSO!!! 'The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue' by Mackenzi Lee is out today! I've heard *such* phenomenal things about this book.

All Rights Reserved (Word$, Book 1) | Gregory Scott Katsoulis
post image

MASSIVE thanks to Harlequin Teen for this ARC of 'All Rights Reserved' by Gregory Scott Katsoulis & a signed bookplate! The premise of this book sounds incredible, and I can't wait to dig in. "When every word has a price, her silence could spark a revolution." On sale August 29, 2017.

Dividing Eden | Joelle Charbonneau
post image

Seeing that everyone's *finally* jumping on the Litsy train, I figured I'd do this!

1. Phoenix, AZ (but from England originally)
2. I'm pretty sure it was an Out of Print newsletter.
3. Jurassic Park
4. Yes, a couple times actually! The last were two red-ear sliders in high school (in other words, a LONG time ago) named Zimmy & Bob. 😃

When Dimple Met Rishi | Sandhya Menon
post image

Ooh ooh! My preorder goodies from Sandhya Menon for 'When Dimple Met Rishi' just got here... now for the book to arrive on time... 🤞🏽 (fingers crossed). This is one of my most anticipated reads of the year; I 💜 diverse books!

ScorpioBookDreams I want these preorder goodies so much but it's not open to people in the UK 😭😭😭 3y
LeeannDunton @ScorpioBookDreams Aww bummer. If you need someone to grab stuff for you in the future and send it over, I'll be glad to help! 2y
ScorpioBookDreams @LeeannDunton another litten actually helped me out so they're on their way! 2y

Black Cross | Greg Iles
post image

Holy crap, I just met Greg Iles, and he's awesome! He has been my favourite "adult" fiction author since I was about 13, and I've never gotten a chance to see him speak until now (some 20 odd years later)! His books are what absolutely turned me into the insane bookworm I am today. Today I was able to have him sign my very first paperback of his, which also happens to be my all-time favourite book, Black Cross. It's old & tatty, but I ? it!

Reecaspieces Did he tell you the story of writing Black Cross. There were almost no rewrites. He wrote it almost in one sitting and what you read is what you get. 3y

Empyrean | Alexander Ruiz
post image

(Cross-posted from IG.) This year I think I'm going to start posting more about the books I read, seeing as that's how I spend most of my free time. So warning... if you hate books, unfollow me now. Haha. 😂 I just finished up 'More Happy Than Not' by Adam Silvera (SO GOOD!) & am now starting a YA dystopia that I won in a Goodreads Giveaway, 'Empyrean' by Alexander Ruiz. Excited to dig into this, as I loooooove me a good dystopia! 🤓

Divergent | Veronica Roth
post image

Has anyone read 'We Can Be Mended: A Divergent Series Epilogue' by Veronica Roth yet? I got mine in the post the other day; it was a bonus the publisher was giving away with pre-orders of VR's new book 'Carve The Mark' (which came out in Jan & that I really enjoyed also). I haven't read the epilogue yet... I feel as if it will be better appreciated if I leave it until a Divergent re-read due to my super-crappy memory. (Continued in comments...)

LeeannDunton Book-nerdy Pals: What are your thoughts on this? Do you like reading epilogues & prologues? Side note: This is a shot of a quote from the inside back cover. The design is pretty stellar! 3y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings It was okay, but honestly seemed a little forced... just my opinion. 3y

Today my Quarterly Co. #LYA03 subscription box got here, only for me to realize that I had already bought Jeff Giles' book, 'The Edge of Everything', when he was at Changing Hands for #YAllapalooza a couple weeks ago. Haha... oops! Luckily the annotations on the Quarterly Co. book are on sticky notes, so I'm just going to transfer them into my signed copy. 👍🏻

LeeannDunton It's a good thing I enjoy giving away books as gifts, as I obviously don't often pay attention to what I'm buying. DERP! 😂🤣 (I can't even tell you how many times I've bought duplicates of books accidentally...) 3y

Besides being absolutely hilarious, Mr. Chuck Palahniuk has the nicest handwriting of any author I've ever seen/met, AND he's an incredible story-teller, to boot! What more could you want in a human being? 😆 I'm going to start 'Bait' here shortly, his latest book of short stories with illustrations to colour. Not that I'll be screwing up this perfect signed copy that I picked up from Changing Hands a few months back! 😜

The tenth anniversary edition of "Thirteen Reasons Why" came out today, and it's gorgeous. I think it's time for a re-read, along with the original ending. ? #jayasher #thirteenreasonswhy #th1rteenr3asonswhy

Fwr I started laughing because your book say "Soon to be a Netflix Original Series" and mine say "Now a Netflix Original Series" 2y

The Diabolic | S. J. Kincaid
post image

There's so much sadness today that I'm going to celebrate two things I absolutely adore: books & mail. A few days ago I got the second Quarterly Co. YA box in the post, and I love it! This one's curated by S.J. Kincaid, author of 'The Diabolic'. I've wanted to read this book since I first read about it's (future) release, and the book contains her personal notes/annotations throughout the entire thing! (Photocopied handwritten notes on stickies!)

When you enter a Goodreads giveaway for an ARC of 'Poet Anderson', even though you have a hardcover signed by Suzanne Young, and you win, and it's signed by Tom Delonge. You may squeal a bit. 😍

Replica | Lauren Oliver

Look how absolutely gorgeous this hardcover is by Lauren Oliver... 'Replica' is out today! I'm a total sucker for any type of creative book design, and this one is absolutely killer. The dust jacket is transparent (the butterfly is printed on the book underneath), and you flip the book over to read the second girl's story. So rad. 👌🏻📚

If you've seen this on the shelves, but haven't yet picked it up, DO IT. You will not regret it, I promise. I'm about half way through, and it's already one of my favourite books of 2016.

Swarm | Scott Westerfeld
post image

This evening I went and saw the always-hilarious Scott Westerfeld talk about his new book 'Swarm' (written with Margo Lanagan & Deborah Biancotti) at Changing Hands Tempe. This was my second time meeting him, and I was just as smitten with him this time as I was the first. Haha. I was finally able to get some additional books signed too, which was awesome. 📚

The Fever Code | James Dashner

I was going to hold off on picking up 'The Fever Code' (the latest in 'The Maze Runner' series) for a little bit, but then I saw today that Changing Hands (Tempe) had these awesome swag packs with them. And then I get home to find, completely unexpectedly, that it's also signed by James Dashner! Super cool.
