New books for me!

I don't do the IMM or Library loot memes, but I feel like recently I've received a bunch of books from various sources and I am excited about them so here's a post...

As Easy as Falling off the Face of the Earth by Lynne Rae Perkins (from my mom and dad for my Birthday). This was recommended to me by the YA person at Chaucer's Bookstore


I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced  by Najood Ali (from my mom and dad for my Birthday. I'll read this as part of my Middle East Reading Challenge)

Knockemstiff by Donald Ray Pollack (from my brother and sister-in-law for my Birthday)

Bamboo People by Mitali Perkins (from my brother and sister-in-law for my Birthday)

Caliph's House by Tahir Shah (from my brother and sister-in-law for my Birthday. I'll read this as part of my Middle East Reading Challenge)

Ashes to Water by Irene Ziegler (as part of a TLC book tour)

Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel (I won this from a give away on Chick with Books)

The Threadbare Heart by Jennie Nash (from Jennie Nash, we grew up together and I emailed her a congratulations on the book and she sent me a copy...how awesome is that?!)

After the Kiss by Terra Elan McVoy (I actually won 2 copies, both signed, of this book from a give away and I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember the blog. Sorry! I donated one copy to my school's library and kept the one signed to me)

Leaving Carolina by Tamara Leigh (I won this from Sheila at Book Journey a while back)

Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden (I won this from a give away on Raging Bibliomania)

Perfect Shot by Debbie Rigaud (I won this from the Persons of Color challenge)

Twice Bitten by Chloe Neill (I won this from Lori at Pure Imagination during the Once Upon a Time Read-a-Thon)










I'd love any feedback you have on any of these books!

Mrs. DeRaps and Aths--My problem is that I get overwhelmed with all the good books staring me in the face. I want to read them all NOW
