The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White
I have been positively drooling over this cover. I really enjoyed Mind Games by Ms. White and am excited to see what she does with Egyptian mythology.
Until it Hurts to Stop by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Another absolutely gorgeous cover. I sometimes struggle with books about bullying, but they can be really good if handled correctly.
Living with Jackie Chan by Jo Knowles
After a teenager fathers a baby he moves in with his karate-obsessed uncle.
Unthinkable  by Nancy Werlin
I've owned the book Impossible (the first book in this series) for about 2 years now but haven't read it. I need to get on that.
Relativity by Cristin Bishara
I'm really excited for this one. I love books that follow multiple planes and this one has 9!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I'm so excited for this book about college aged girls that sounds absolutely nothing like typical "NA". Plus fan fiction!
The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman
Several people in a small town go mad and commit murders on a day that is coined "the killing day." I'm not exactly sure what this one is about beyond that, but it looks creepy and dark.
The Hive by Gill Hornby
Mom mean girls and queen bees. I love books that take an honest look at female friendships.
Cherry Money Baby  by John M. Cusick
A trailer park girl who plans to marry her high school sweetheart after high school gets swept up in a visiting starlet's life.
The Daylight Gate by Jeanette Winterson
A group of witches in 1612...or something. It's Jeanette Winterson so it's bound to be pretty awesome.

So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!

  10. I got Relativity this week, too, and I'm really looking forward to it! Ah, Impossible has a sequel! I remember enjoying it, but I don't remember much about it. I may need to reread and then check out Unthinkable!

  11. I haven't gotten approval for Unthinkable yet. I have read her other ones. I'll just have to wait and see if I do end up getting it. :) You got a great stack! I hope you enjoy them all! Thanks for stopping by too.

  12. You got a lot of good reads this week! I'm especially excited about Fangirl and I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on Cherry Money Baby. The Hive also looks like something I'd love. I hope you enjoy everything!

  13. SUPER jealous of Fangirl & The Chaos of Stars. And Cherry Baby Money.

    I won the Hive from LB during BEA, but I still haven't read it. I love the cover though.

    Some REALLY great books here :)

  14. I've been super excited and drooling over The Chaos of Stars too! Fangirl also looks really cute and I've been seeing good things about it. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

  15. my sister read eleanor and park and loved it but i heard it's a sad one so i haven't picked it up yet but fangirl sounds not as sad. i don't know if that's true but i'm really digging the cover.

    hope you can stop by my StS.

  21. Awesome haul! I'm excited to check out Fangirl. And I totally agree about Until it Hurts to Stop (about the cover and bullying). The Chaos of Stars looks awesome too, actually they all do haha. Happy readings!

  22. I know I've got Waking Dark, think I have Chaos of the stars too. Great haul! Thanks for stopping by my STS.

  23. Oh man, this is a GREAT haul. I want over half the books. Haha. I really like the cover for Cherry Money Baby. I'm not sure why... I just love how simple it is. I hope you enjoy your books! I can't wait to see what you think of them :D

  24. I'm so nervous to start THE CHAOS OF STARS. It sounds so good and the cover is so pretty. Apparently it's let a lot of people down there. Here's hoping we both really like it! AH you got FANGIRL. So jealous! I'm dying to read that one. I think it's out now? I may have to go borrow it from the library. THE DAYLIGHT GATE sounds awesome. I've never heard of it before. I love anything witch related so it's bound to be awesome. Hope you like all these!

  25. I read Fangirl, The Waking Dark, and Relativity recently, and all were great. I hope you enjoy them!
