Dude!! That is like a ridiculous amount of books!! Most of those middle grade books are pretty short though, and they come out in June, July and August. All the HarperTeen ebooks are September/October releases. The only ones coming out soon are the physical copies that Harper sent me. 

I want to send a big thank you to Macmillan, HarperTeen and Simon and Schuster Audio nad Soho Teen for the review books!! Also thanks to Leigh Ann Kopans for ONE for review! Thanks to Autumn for Margaret from Maine and super tackle hugs to Eileen for Pivot Point!! This week was EPIC!!

    1. I am about half done with the audio of Clockwork Princess. I am trying to prolong it as much as I can because I don't want it to end. I've been listening to about 2 hours a day.

  13. That's a ton of books, but looks like you have a lot of fun stuff to look forward to! I am pumped up about all of those Harper Teen books and grabbed a few on Edelweiss as well!

    Looking forward to Salt too, seems like that one will be quick because it's verse and short.

    OOOo everyone is reading Clockwork Princess, hope it's superb!

  15. OMG I'm cracking up at your rant! "Even people who aren't excited for it probably knows about the movie. You do not need to stick a sticker on my book" PRICELESS! :D

    AND I HOPE YOU LOVE PIVOT POINT WITH YOUR SOUL. *runs around* *flails*

    And YAY for surprise packages! All of your new bookies sound insanely epic! :)

    Hope you enjoy!

    1. Lol!! You should have seen my ranting on twitter about the sticker. It ended being like a 2 hour convo with 3 different people haha! I was so irrationally angry about it.

      AHHH I LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!! I am so excited to read Pivot Point!! You are super awesome!!

  16. I am so jealous over your Harper Teen books, I wish I were auto approved! Clockwork Princess is one EVERYBODY'S STS posts, even mine although I haven't even read any of the books yet.

    1. Yeah, Clockwork Princess pretty much was the must have book of the week. I am taking my time with the audio so I can prolong it. I don't want it to end and I know it's going to shatter me. I'm just over half done and it's had me in tears twice already lol!! Arclight is so pretty!! That is going to be one I will need a finished copy of for sure. (If I like it)

    1. Haha!! Right, that is a ton of books!! Most of them don't come out until the end of June and up into October. Only a few of them are coming out soon.

  18. So many good books! Holy crap! I am super jealous over some of these. *coughs* Not a Drop to Drink *coughs* but how are you going to find time to read them all? YIKES!

    1. Most of them don't come out for months. All the HarperTeen ebooks I got are September and October releases so they are months away!! I have a ton of MG books, but those are June July, and August. Also most of those are short so they will be quick and easy to read. :)

  19. 'Bump Bump Bump...' haha yeaahhh. Anyways seriously girl what an EPIC haul this week! I am totally jelly of Take, Arclight (which looks gorg btw!) Not a Drop to Drink & No Angel look cool too! Oh and I hope you LOVE Clockwork Princess - can't wait to get into the series :)

    ENJOY all of these, loving all those MG books too, can't wait to read your thoughts!

  20. Great haul there chickie!! I already read Taken and still haven't written up a review for it yet. I liked it though, but I think a lot of people won't :/ It was good, but not fantastic. I hope you enjoy all of those awesome books!
