A weekly meme on the books on the top of my list to read and books recently acquired, borrowed, or bought. Inspired by the Story Siren’s In My Mailbox.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these. This really does not reflect the amount of books I get on a weekly basis.
Top of the Shelf / Currently Reading
What’s next on my to-read list for the upcoming week. I need to catch up on my review pile so that’s what I’m prioritizing this weekend.
Silly me! I completely forgot to add eGalleys/eARCs received from the publisher and through NetGalley!
Thanks to Romance at Random!
Thanks to Brent at the Naughty Book Kitties <3.
Hey, what’s this? A new feature? Yep. This is just some of the highlights I’ve encountered while digging through my Google reader feed, YouTube, Goodreads, and Twitter.
Reviews Worth Reading
Convincing, entertaining, well-written or all of the above, these reviews are worth your time.
Oh my gosh, the upcoming premiere of The Walking Dead is turning me into a zombie state of mind. So when I read this review of Jonathan Maberry’s Dead of Night over at Bites, I quickly added it to my shelf.
After reading this review at the Book Smugglers, all I can think is: WOW, I need Code Name Verity right *now*. I was already planning on reading it, but it looks like I need to bump it up the TBR.

Meet the clique that rules Fidelity High: Olivia, Zelda, Nordica, and Shelly, each one handpicked by über-popular Hamilton Best. You know you’re “in” when you make the guest list for one of Hamilton’s parties. And in the thralls of senior year, everyone wants to get noticed by Hamilton.
But Hamilton’s elite entourage is coming apart at the seams. Olivia fantasizes about finally having a boyfriend, Zelda dreams of ditching high school, Nordica wants to be alone with her photography, and Shelly’s plotting to dethrone Hamilton. Lies and secrets are ripping away the careful ties that have kept them together for years. But Hamilton has the biggest secret of all, one that only her boyfriend Alex knows. If the truth got out, it would shock everyone and destroy Hamilton’s fragile world—and she’ll do anything to protect her secret and keep her clique together.
This trailer convinced me to add the book to my TBR pile!
