Other Books Out This Week:

I'm SO excited for Bang!!  I loved Crash, so I've been waiting on this one ever since.  I also think Red looks cool and unique, I'm definitely reading Premeditated, and I'm still thinking on Tandem.  It's not my usual style of book, but I really liked Anna Jarzab's writing in All Unquiet Things.  Has anyone read it or heard if it's worth reading??

What are you excited to read?


  1. I NEED to get my hands on Resist and Tandem. I'm so excited for both of them. :)

  2. I'm excited for Just One Year! :) I thought that there were some really cool aspects to Tandem, but I felt that the different POVs weren't handled very well.
