Here's what I got this week:
ETA: Oops! I forgot one because I was reading it and it wasn't in my pile!:
Bitter Melon by Cara Chow (Egmont USA, December 2010). This is a 2010 debut and I know it's written by an author of color (and featuring an Asian-American protagonist), so I'm excited to read it!
Edges by Lena Roy (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, December 2010). This is a 2010 debut!
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers (St. Martin's Griffin, December 2010). Kelly is going to be heartbroken if I don't like this one. It has been getting some super reviews, so hopefully I will! :)
The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal (Egmont USA, January 2011). This is a 2011 debut and there's a story behind why I requested this one. The very first year I won NaNoWriMo, my story was about a girl who was secretly adopted at birth and raised as a princess. Neither the girl nor the kingdom at large knew that the queen wasn't her biological mother. When I read the blurb for this one, it sounded kind of similar (by coincidence, only!). Obviously I'm intrigued by the idea and I had to see what a real writer would do with it!
Taking Off by Jenny Moss (Walker, January 2011). Historical fiction set around the Challenger space shuttle explosion. I actually just finished this one, so except a review soon!
And that's it for my mailbox! I have been so busy lately that I feel like I haven't had any time to read... Luckily I've got a vacation coming up after Christmas, so I plan to do nothing but read, read, read!
