All the Summer Girls      The Book of Broken Hearts    Night School (Night School, #1)  
Transparent September Girls  

The Summer I Became a Nerd  by Leah Rae Miller
This showed up on Netgalley two days after its release date--which was awesome since this was high on my TBR list already.
He's Gone by Deb Caletti
I'm excited to read what this popular YA author does with an adult novel/mystery
All I Need by Susane Colasanti
Honestly, I usually just get sucked in by this author's covers and then feel kind of...meh about the writing, but again, this cover was so pretty I just had to have it.
All the Summer Girls by Meg Donahue
Three friends on a summer vacation at the beach. Sold!
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler
I'm so excited for this one I featured it on my first WoW post. It sounds so good and early reviews have been pretty glowing.
Night School by CJ Doughtery
I didn't even read the synopsis of this book. That cover is truly all it took. Serious cover love.
Transparent by Natalie Whipple
I'm kind of skeptical on this one. It's getting some seriously mixed reviews and I don't understand why an invisible girl would have to try to get away from anybody. Because people can't, you know, um, see her so how could that be hard?
September Girls  by Bennett Madison
So this book is being called one of the worst books ever by some early reviewers which isn't inspiring much hope. 

What I snagged from the library
Imaginary Girls     Doll Bones      Twenty Boy Summer

Imaginary Girls  by Nova Ren Suma
I've eyed this cover up forever. I checked out the Playaway version.
Doll Bones by Holly Black
I don't normally read Juvenile/MG, but this looks awesome.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
After getting so excited about The Book of Broken Hearts I decided to look up this author's previous work.

    I'd love to read your thoughts on The Summer I became a nerd, I've also got that in this week's STS post.

    here is mine

  10. Natalie- you got some amazing looking books this week! I really want to get my hands on Doll Bones by Holly Black. It looks like a great MG Book. Enjoy!

    My Stacking The Shelves :)

  11. I just added Night School to be TBR. Thanks :) The Summer I became a nerd looks fun. Enjoy your new books!
    Here are my newest additions

  12. Awesome haul! :D I'm looking forward to your thoughts on "The Summer I Became a Nerd" because I really want to read it! :P Happy reading!

    My StS is over here.

  13. Nerd is very popular this week. I have heard great things.

  14. I just requested The Summer I Became a Nerd. I really hope I'm approved. Anyway, enjoy all you goodies and happy reading :)

  15. AH, yes, i'm hearing some really bad things about September Girls, too---and that makes me sad because I was really looking forward to that one. :( Night School looks awesome, and Doll Bones! I got Transparent, too, this week---looks interesting, but definitely a good point you made about it! :D

  16. I've head that the September Girls book wasn't all that special afterall. I hope you'll like it though. Everyone has different taste and I hope I'll like it as well:-) I enjoyed Night School as a whole and the plot was good, but I hate the love triangle and after reading some spoilers for book two, I can't believe Allie forgave a certain incident and it's all forgiven in the second book and yeah.. I won't be continuing this series. Other than that, I hope you'll enjoy it as well as the rest of the books you got. Happy reading, Natalie!

  17. I am so excited about The Book of Broken Hearts, too! I hope it's wonderful :)

  18. You have sooo many amazing books. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Broken Hearts and September Girls...I definitely want to read both. I also got All the Summer Girls and All I Need---can't wait to read those beach reads! I also really enjoyed Twenty Boy Summer..such a good read! Enjoy all of your books!

  19. OOOH! So many books I want!!! I did get The Summer I Became a Nerd, which I'm psyched about since that was kind of me in HS! I've also got Transparent, which I'm going to be reading next week hopefully! Enjoy all your books- can't wait to see some of your reviews!

  20. Wow! Your haul is pretty much my wish list, I'm impressed! The summer I became a Nerd looks and sounds quirky. Enjoy :-)

  21. I so want to read September Girls just to see how bad it is lol! Awesome haul, can't wait to start TSIBAN. Enjoy :)

  22. Don't get discouraged if you have issues with Night School! I had some too, but the second book more than made up for it. It was truly wonderful! Daugherty is an excellent writer.
    And I enjoyed Transparent a lot, it really surprised me.
    Enjoy them all!

  23. I also got Transparent this week and I am currently reading Night School, I don't know how I feel about it just yet though =/ Happy Reading this week and great haul!

  24. I love all of your eARCS. Most of these are on my TBR too. I hope you enjoy reading them!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. I really really want The Summer I Became a Nerd. I think that's for sure going on my list next time I shop for books. Enjoy all these!! :) And thanks for stopping by mine earlier.

    Sheri @ Tangled Up In Books

  26. A lot of awesome books on your shelves. But if I have to pick 'The Summer I Became a Nerd' is my favorite, because of nerd-y title. :) I hope you enjoy all your new books!
    Thanks for stopping by my STS

  27. I'm reading The Book of Broken Hearts right now and it's so good, I hope you love it!

  28. I had the chance to read He's Gone but decided to pass because I'm so overloaded with books, so I can't wait to see what you think!

    Jen @ YA Romantics

  29. I normally don't read much MG either, but I quite liked Doll Bones. It's not very memorable, but it's pretty cute and creepy, nonetheless. :) I hope you like it! And I see what you mean about the cover for Night School! The UK cover is nowhere near as lovely. Looking forward to seeing what you think of it. :) Enjoy!

  30. Hadn't heard of Night School, but you're right, the cover caught my eye! And I want the September Girls so bad! Great haul! Thanks for stopping by my StS as well!

  31. Wow! Great haul!
    I'm dying to read most of the books you got! Especially all the e-book arcs! Imaginary Girls sounds really good too!
    I hope you enjoy them all :D


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
