Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

The Fairest of Them All  by Carolyn Turgeon
A re-imaging of two fairy tales with Rapunzel as Snow White's wicked step-mother. I'm pretty intrigued by this premise. 
The Butterfly Sister by Amy Gail Hansen

The Goddess Chronicle by Natsuo Kirino

What I snagged from the library

Code Name Verity Spies and Prejudice The Lonely Hearts Club

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I've heard great things about this novel about two friends and pilots whose plane goes down during WWII.
Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance
I'm honestly pretty over re-tellings of Pride and Prejudice (there are so many), but I'm a sucker for books about teen spies so I'm crossing my fingers this one will be good.
The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg
I remember liking this one when it came out a few years ago, but can't really remember it, so I decided to give it a second look.
Well, that's all for me this week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Link me up!

Hey lovely GFC and new followers, please follow me by Bloglovin as we all know Google Reader is going/has gone by the wayside. (I like to follow back, so please let me know if you're a new follower--and leave a link!) Thank you!!!


  1. Ooh, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! I want to read it so bad. :) Nice haul!

  2. I hadn't heard of The Butterfly Sister, that sounds really good. And Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is definitely on my TBR list, I hope it ends up being as good as it sounds! Have fun reading! ~Pam

  3. Great book haul! I'll look forward to hearing what you think.

  4. I've read all three books you picked up from the library. Yes, Code Name Verity is AMAZING. I mean, I had pretty high expectations, and it was even better than I was expecting.

    Spies and Prejudice - well, I was totally disappointed. I was not a fan, I'm afraid. But maybe you will like it.

    The Lonely Hearts Club is really cute, definitely worth a second read. I loved reading about all these girls sticking with each other.

    Anyway, enjoy you goodies and happy reading :)

  5. Ohh you haven't read Code Name Verity yet?! No pressure, but it is amazing! I'm jealous you get to read it for the first time.

    I'm interested to see what you think of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. It's not my normal thing, but I think it sounds really interesting.

  6. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea sounds great! It is on my to-read list. Hope you enjoy all your new books. Happy Reading!

  7. I really want to read BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA! I love the name of it and the premise sounds awesome. Definitely looking forward to your review. I haven't heard of THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL but it sounds like an interesting twist of fairy tales!

  8. Great haul! Some of these I've never heard of before. I guess I'll need to make another trip to Goodreads and look them up before I go to bed. You know what that means.. I'll most likely be adding even more to my TBR. LOL.

    Thank so much for stopping by My Book Addiction!

  9. Yay... the Fairest of them all seems wonderful. Maybe it's Snow White with a Twist. Yay!
