  1. I read the few pages of Awaken and I loved it. Have to pick it up again soon. Enjoy.

  2. Epic Fail looks awesome, and I love anything to do with Jane Austen. Sweetly also looks pretty good. Happy reading this week, with all your new books! :)

  3. Those all look awesome - I am really looking forward to Epic Fail.

  4. Aaahh, A Wrinkle in Time boxset! I've read the first two in the quintet for a Children's Literature class I took last year (best. class. ever.) and I'm absolutely in love with them. I can't wait to get to the rest of them.

  5. i really want to read epic fail--love contemporary retellings of pride and prejudice. and, yeah, sweetly: awesome. happy reading :)


  6. Awaken has gotten lots of mixed reviews, but I absolutely LOVED it - hope you do too!

  7. Audrey, Wait! is one of my favorite books. It's such a funny contemporary novel that's totally feel-good. One of the best narrators ever (I so want to be Audrey's best friend!).

  8. Sweetly looks good.

    I hope you LOVE Audrey, Wait. That book is hilarious and so much fun to read!

  9. You'll have to let me know what you think of Epic Fail, whether I need to pick it up for JnJ, or contact Claire.
    I need to get around to TAoJF. I've had it forever!
    I've really been meaning to get my hands on a copy of Audrey,Wait! I've heard it's hilarious just the whole way through.
    I really liked The Wanderer. It was a bit of a slow burner, but really good. Sharon Creech never really lets ya down.


  10. Seriously, I am so glad you agree about Sharon Creech being underrated. I remember reading a bunch of her books as a teen and even though I don't really remember the plots too well, I remember being really moved by them!

  11. Wrinkle in Time - so cool. I like your vlog Liz.

  12. So many great books!! Epic Fail looks so good! =) Enjoy!!

  13. sweetly is everywhere on the blogs it seems very popular, i gotta get my hands on a copy!

    please stop by the blog sometime

  14. Lots of great books. I enjoyed Awaken a lot and am actually writing a review for it now.

    Happy Reading!

  15. I loved Epic Fail. I seem to the only blogger who didn't get a copy of Sweetly. I need to start e-mailing publishers to get on their contact list. :-(
    How's the packing going? Do you leave next week?

  16. Jenna Fox is awesome...and very cool that you got Sweetly!

    Happy reading :D

  17. Funny, I have a Wrinkle in Time on my book list for class as well! But I actually have not read it yet. Looking forward to doing so though!

    Also, I've been meaning to read Jenna Fox for a while now but I haven't gotten to it yet. Soon, I hope.
