First, thanks to Roaring Brook Press and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  I was lucky enough to get an ARC  of the first book, The Vault of Dreamers, and meet the author when I went to BEA in 2014.  So unfortunately I won’t have matching ARCs since I only […]

Audiobook Review: Why Not Me?..

Posted December 29, 2015 by Lisa Mandina in / 10 Comments

Once again I checked another audiobook out from my public library.  Pretty sure that all the audiobooks I’ll review will come from the library. Without a CD player in my car, I doubt I’d buy any.  But anyway, I have been wanting to read/listen to this one since it came out, especially as much as […]

I actually got an ARC of this book through Books for Trade on Twitter, but originally I got an e-galley from HarperTeen and Edelweiss.  I really wanted a physical ARC though, to match the physical ARC I have of the first book, The Jewel, which I got at BEA in 2014.  So thanks to all […]

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this when I went to BEA a year ago.  I also got to meet the author and get an autograph.  As you can see though, I didn’t get to it for over a year.  So it is #11 on my TBR Challenge list for the year.  […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is the sequel to a book I got at BEA back in the summer of 2014, The Vault of Dreamers.  It was an interesting story, even if it wasn’t quite […]

This was a book I was so disappointed when I was unable to get an ARC at BEA the summer of 2014, but then I believe I was able to finally get it this past year through YA Book Exchange.  I have to say I did enjoy it, it was different from what I guess […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  I started seeing this book on other WOWs in March, and so had to add it to my schedule as soon as I could!  I loved the first book, The Jewel, and got the […]

First, I have to thank the author, as well as Netgalley and Flux publishing.  I first came to love this series back in January of 2014 when I read Insomnia, the first one, after winning it in a giveaway.  I got the 2nd book, Paranoia, as an egalley from Netgalley last summer, when I was […]

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this at BEA in the summer of 2014.  I also got to meet the author last summer, who I have been a huge fan of ever since I first read his book Gone. Unfortunately, I’m not quite sure I was a big fan of this book. […]

  First thanks to Edelweiss and Delacorte Press for allowing me to read an egalley of the sequel to The Living.  I read the first book as an egalley over a year ago, and then was lucky enough to get to meet the author and get an autographed copy of the first book.  Here I […]
