Ghost Time by Courtney Elridge
Man I got some creepy ass books this week. About a disappearance. I'm assuming there's going to be a ghost.
Dragonfly by Leigh Moore
Billed as Gossip Girl meets VC Andrews. Like that should be a selling point.
Far Far Away by Tom McNeal
About a boy who can talk to the ghost of Jacob Grimm. From the brothers Grimm. That's really all I needed to know about this book.

What I snagged from the library

Spirit and DustThousand WordsDare Me 
A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)Witches of East End (The Beauchamp Family, #1)Lips Touch: Three Times

Spirit and Dust by Rosemary Clement-Moore
I really enjoyed this author's Texas Gothic which also followed members of the Goodnight family. I can't wait to dive into this one.
Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown
I'm excited for this book about a girl who gets sentenced to community service after she is caught sexting.
Dare Me by Megan Abbott
I was a cheerleader throughout high school and always enjoy stories that revolve around a squad. I also love stories that delve into the teenage psyche. So this is a win-win.
I got the audio book to listen to in my car. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person in the world who hasn't read this trilogy, so I'm excited to find out what the fuss is all about. I loved Bray's Beauty Queens and The Diviners. 
Witches of the East End by Melissa de la Cruz
About a family of witches forced to repress their abilities.
Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
A book of three short stories that revolve around kissing. It's illustrated!

So that's what I added to my shelves this week. What about you? Did you get anything new you just can't wait to dive into? Link me up!

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!
