Other Books Out This Week:

Happy Superbowl Sunday everybody!!  There's a lot of cool books coming out this month... and especially this week!  I know I want to read Something Real, Alienated, and I really need to start the Lunar Chronicles series AND the Shatter Me series!  What are you going to read out of these books??


  1. I seriously need to start the Lunar series! I have had Cinder on my shelf forever and I just keep not getting to it! I've seen nothing but amazing reviews for these books so I need to make them a priority.

    I've got Alienated in my stack too. That looks really interesting to me.

  2. As a Lunar Chronicles fan - I NEED to get my hands on Cress. And yes... not being over dramatic or anything but this is a need and not a want...

    Okay. So I'm not really that much like Veruca Salt but I am eager to read it. I didn't think I'd like a futuristic scifi cyborg fairytale retelling but its a great series. :)

  4. Alienated, Landry Park and mist walker can't wait to get my hands on these!

  5. YES! I'm so glad you're going to start The Lunar Chronicles and Shatter Me series! I just started Shatter Me and I am soooo excited to finish up the series! You're going to love both series! :)

    1. I'm really excited too!! I need to read something completely out there and different from what I've been reading just to mix it up!
