  • A Good Long Way by Rene Saldana, Jr
Books waiting in the wings:
  • Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow

    I finished my Cybils reading and posted a lot of nonfiction reviews. Come see what I'm reading now.

    So how did you enjoy your Net Galley read? I have yet to try one. Have a great week!

    Helen's Book Blog said...

    Sheila and Jan--I liked doing Netgalley! It'll be even better when they've fixed their Kindle issue, but reading it on my computer screen wasn't too bad. And, the book was really good!

    Jennifer--Ok. You've convinced me. I'm going to finish Death Instinct so I can do a proper review for the tour

    Pussreboots--Great job on finishing all the Cybils reading!

    Nina said...

    oh you already read Shine by Lauren Myracle! Going to check your review for it out. I also received it trough NG. Loving NG. :) Enjoy your reading week.

    Aleetha said...

    Will check and request Shine.
    But will do it after finishing my review for NG.
    I have received a lot from them.

    I am curious about Girl Who Fell From The Sky. Is it another book with angel inside?

    Helen's Book Blog said...

    Nina--I am a new convert to Netgalley and like it already. Today I got Delirium by Lauren Oliver!

    Aleetha--There is no angel inside Girl Who Fell from the Sky. The cover is dark blue a falling outline of a girl on it

    You had a fantastic last week - I know because I added most of those books to my mountain TBR too. :)

    Have a great week ahead!

    I don't know much about Netgallery I need to check it out. I really love your blog design, very cute.
    Have a fun week.

    Aths--Enjoy those books; I feel like I had a successful week choosing books (and they are all such quick reads)

    Joy--Thank you! I am just discovering the wonders of Netgallery

    Christina--I'll probably begin Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Friday; I'm really looking forward to it
