You Would Not Believe What I Found in My Local Library...
I am still in shock. I'm nothing but a minor blogger, and I had no chance of going to BEA, but apparently a librarian at my local library did! I walked into the library today and walked over to the YA section... and I saw the spine of a Beautiful Creatures ARC staring out at me. I freaked out and I think the other people in the library were staring at me. But when I started babbling to the librarians they pointed me towards MORE ARCs that I had missed. Forest Born by Shannon Hale and Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines!!!!!
I am so excited to read them!
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Forest Born (The Fourth Book of Bayern) by Shannon Hale
Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines
I am also determined to improve my blog this Summer, so expect something better than the suckiness I've been giving you.
If you are interested in having me review a book, it's very likely that I will accept your request. I will accept books from large and small publishers, and self-published books. I will read ARCs or books that have already been released. I will read e-books, but I prefer to read printed copies of books.
But that doesn't mean I will accept every request I get. Sometimes I am busy with other things, simply have enough books to review, or the book is not what I am willing to read. This blog is devoted to certain genres. I will mostly be reviewing sf/fantasy/supernatural/speculative fiction, almost all of which will be YA or Middle Grade. If the book doesn't fit that description, there is less of a chance that I will be willing to review it. But if it is realistic YA, that will probably be fine. I will probably not review Christian non-fiction or fiction, adult non-fiction, adult romances, or picture books.
Just because I agree to review a book does not necessarily mean everything I say in a review will be praise. I will try to mention what is good about the book, but I will be writing my own opinion about what I read, including what I didn't like.
