Book Haul #91: The Shadow Races and More!



Hello booknerds!!!

Where did the week go???

I had some lovely personal memories happen this week...
my nephew, my one and only, turned ONE this week!
AND, he has started to let go and walk long distances like a wobbly pro :)
Yes, I know I have 3 boys of my own, but having a nephew is just the best bonus ever!!! I love him so much - it's such a different kind of love, but it is SO much! I am enjoying every minute watching him grow! And, it's bittersweet seeing my little sister being a mom and a grown-up now, lol! I'm 6 1/2 years older than her, she will always be the 'baby'... 
My baby bee is finally talking more! In between his baby gibberish you can make out words too, which means, he's trying to talk in full sentences already, lol! I really think he's going to outdo his brothers once he gets the hang of it... oh boy! 

I had some lovely bookish memories too!
Don't you just looove it when authors reach out to you, like your tweets or IG pics... 
OH! and when one of your favorite authors follows you back?! *flails*

And lastly, as you can see below, I got a good small stack of new reads this week...

Waiting on Wednesday #129: NEVER NEVER by Brianna R. Shrum (YA)


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 


What I'm currently waiting for... 


by Brianna R. Shrum
Expected release date: September 22nd, 2015
Published by Spencer Hill Press
Genre: Young Adult Fairytale Retelling
Format: Paperback, eBook


SUMMARY

James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.

When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child — at least briefly. 


James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.

But grow up he does.

And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.

This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.

Except one.
 


Why I'm waiting on NEVER NEVER...

FIRST... you guys must all know by now how HUGE my love is for all things PETER PAN!!!
This is ALL about HOOK!
The how and why he grows up and despises Peter Pan SO much!!!

Secondly... a different perspective of Peter Pan!
And, WHY didn't Peter Pan just let James go home???

Lastly... just LOOK at that COVER!!!

I am DYING to read this!!!



What are you waiting on this week?!?!?!

An Open Letter to my YA Self... (Giveaway)


Ginger at GReads! came up with an idea to highlight YA contemporary books -
the idea to write a letter to our young adult self! Inspired by the Dear Teen Me book.
Ginger then asked a bunch of authors and bloggers to share their letters and book recommendations in this month long feature... please see Ginger's intro post here for more information on the event and the giveaway that she is hosting!

#OpenLettertoYASelf

Dear 16-year-old Margie...

On your 16th birthday you wonder and dream about what it is going to be like when you turn 30... age is just a number. Turning 16 is no big deal, you didn't want a Quinceanera or a Sweet Sixteen... nor do you plan on doing anything for any other birthdays, at least nothing big or typical. But for some odd reason, turning 30 seems so far away, and SO old, it scares you. Please stop worrying so much, everything is amazing, more than you ever dreamed of! (Hitting 40 is scarier, but we're learning to embrace it now, lol!)

I am so sorry that we couldn't find someone/something to help guide you through high school. The pressure of always having to be the quiet, nice, smart girl is hard. And the few ways that you've tried to break out of the mold you've been put in and reach out is wrong, and puts you in unwanted situations. Please stop. Embrace the quiet... you'll thank me later!

The two people you thought would be by your side throughout school, to lean on and support each other, have just disappeared from your life with no explanation - I'm so sorry! But, I am so proud on how well you handle it. I'm still surprised that you don't even cry about it. You don't ask why or dwell on it. You hope for something positive to happen soon, and you continue to try to reach out and let them know you're still there for them. You are wise beyond your years, so deep and thoughtful, a good caring person.

Only knowing half the things that our peers talk about and do is frustrating. Right now, there is no one like you - an American/Puerto Rican who has never had broccoli or hashbrowns, but prefers pizza over mami's arroz con pollo... a Latina that can't dance or cook... a girl stuck in between two languages - knowing the words and how to use them but not fully understanding their true meanings. Not only this, but also the fact that there are classmates that resent you because you don't need a green card to be here, you act and dress too "white". And your other classmates don't understand you. Even though you were born and raised here, you grew up in a strict Catholic-Spanish household, with Latino foods, music, etc. You're starting to realize that no amount of MTV or Beverly Hills 90210 is going to help. It's time to start letting things go and search for whatever it is you are going to like, love and enjoy.

I wish I could warn you about the things that are going to happen to you soon. The group of girls you desperately want to befriend now is not who you are or what you want to be. You'll find out soon enough. The disappointment and heartache will be short-lived. Many more not-so-great moments are going to happen, you will learn. Move on. Embrace the good and store away the bad, because I know that you fear making the same mistake twice. You still do.

All the "firsts" that you've been daydreaming about will happen within the next few years - a little later than we anticipated, but it's all good - I promise you, they are all worth the wait! 

My one wish for you is to remain strong and follow your heart! I know that you struggle with this and don't have the confidence yet. You will give up too easily on a dream, twice. And it's okay, you have other dreams to get to first... I wish I could tell you that that dream has come true by now, but no, it is still a dream, but we still have plenty of time! 

Most of all, I want to let you know that no matter what - I have and will always love you!

xoxo, Your 40-year-old-awesome-self



- REVENGE OF THE GIRL WITH THE GREAT PERSONALITY...
A very long time ago, we accepted the fact that we were always going to be average looking. I'm proud of you for not being vain, and for trying hard to accept who you are. But, I know how tiring it got to hear how we had such a great personality - as if the person was disappointed, like that wasn't enough. Well, Lexi could have not only supported us, but she would have given us the pep talk, support and fun moments we desperately needed so we wouldn't feel so badly about ourselves!

- PRETTY AMY...
You are quite naive my dear ol' self, but, in the end, you did us both so proud! You could have ended up like Amy - I wish you would have been able to read Amy's story so you could have done right and stuck up for yourself a lot sooner than you did. In the end, you did the right thing. But you could have been spared of all the angst, hurt and loneliness a lot sooner if I could have introduced you to Amy.

- WANDERLOVE...
Oh, how I wish Bria would have come into our lives when we were 16... I'm not saying we needed to run away and travel the world alone! But, she would have helped us open our eyes and see that there is more to life than the protective little bubble you are living in. I wish you could see how strong you are and tried your damnedest to pursue your dreams, to continue on with your education and do the things that you so desperately wanted to do, and especially, not leave your creative side to wither away. I have no regrets, but this all would have been a great bonus to have had by our side!

- FANGIRL...
And lastly, I mostly wish that you could have met Cath ages ago! She would have taught us that it is okay for us to embrace our inner geek-girl! We could have enjoyed ALL of the BOOKS! ALL of the FANDOMS! We could have written ALL of the stories and poetry! And we could have drawn ALL of the illustrations and comic books to go along with it!
Don't worry, we are definitely catching up on all of this now ;)



Thank you so much, Ginger, for putting this together and letting me be a part of this!

Review: THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Chris Riddell (YA)


by Neil Gaiman
Illustrated by Chris Riddell
UK Release date: October 23rd, 2014
UK Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Expected US Release date: September 22nd, 2015
US Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult Fairytale Retelling
Format: Hardcover, eBook
Format read: UK Hardcover I purchased.


SUMMARY

A thrillingly reimagined fairy tale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell – weaving together a sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty with a thread of dark magic, which will hold readers spellbound from start to finish. 

On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future – and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this perfectly delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents.

Lavishly produced, packed with glorious Chris Riddell illustrations enhanced with metallic ink, this is a spectacular and magical gift.


MY REVIEW

(Review initially posted here on Misty of The Book Rat's blog.)


Only an inventive and astute mind can create a new fairytale out of two very much loved fairytales; combined with a magical artisan, the story is sure to take on a life all on its own...

THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE is an enchanting retelling of both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. The author took the most memorable, pivotal and historical parts of each story and weaved a new one full of magic, wonder and intriguing new characters.

Our Snow White is a warrior who is being forced to marry in order to keep her Queen status. However, news of a curse gone awry forces the Queen to skip her nuptials and go on a long journey to find what the curse is and how to stop it.
Flanked by some not-so-merry men, the Queen encounters zombie-like obstacles before making a few discoveries and reaching her destination. There, she finds an elderly woman with a tragic tale. And a Sleeping Beauty who is full of cunning surprises and shocking revelations.
And in the end, the Queen makes the most startling choices... and will she go back to her kingdom and remain their queen?

Neil Gaiman does not disappoint, he continues to enchant me with his creepy style and unsettling twists. Chris Riddell's illustrations only enhances the eeriness and heightened my imagination, bringing the characters to life in a way that made me stare at the pictures to be sure that they weren't real, or moving... I wish to say more, but I fear two things: one, it may be spoilery; and two, that those things will come to haunt me in my sleep.
As you can see by the book's stunning cover, the illustrations are fascinating and, like I mentioned, they will capture your attention and you will have a hard time looking away. You will be forced to stare and study them, they are gorgeous, it will be hard to look away.

THE SLEEPER AND THE SPINDLE is simply beautiful - swift, grim and mesmerizing. Both the author and the illustrator will leave you in a stupor wanting more. I highly recommend this not only to those who are enthralled with fairytales, but for those who are looking for something different to escape into for a little while... unless you find yourself enchanted by their spell.
You have been warned.

Blog Tour (Excerpt, Review and Giveaway): THE TRUTH ABOUT US by Janet Gurtler (YA)


http://www.jeanbooknerd.com/2015/02/the-truth-about-us-by-janet-gurtler.html

THE TRUTH ABOUT US
by Janet Gurtler
Release date: April 7th, 2015
Published by Sourcebooks Fire
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: Paperback, eBook
Format read: ARC from the publisher.

SUMMARY

A powerful and gripping contemporary YA from the author of I'm Not Her that's "Just right for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jodi Picoult."-Booklist

The truth is that Jess knows she screwed up.
She's made mistakes, betrayed her best friend, and now she's paying for it. Her dad is making her spend the whole summer volunteering at the local soup kitchen.

The truth is she wishes she was the care-free party-girl everyone thinks she is.
She pretends it's all fine. That her "perfect" family is fine. But it's not. And no one notices the lie...until she meets Flynn. He's the only one who really sees her. The only one who listens.

The truth is that Jess is falling apart – and no one seems to care.
But Flynn is the definition of "the wrong side of the tracks." When Jess's parents look at him they only see the differences-not how much they need each other. They don't get that the person who shouldn't fit in your world... might just be the one to make you feel like you belong.

EXCERPT

I’m about to put my tools away when I spot an Ivy wilted and close to dying.  I clip and spray the leaves, chattering to it the whole time. “Come on little guy, give it your all, you can do it,” I tell it.
“You talk to plants?”
I jump and glance behind me. Flynn is a few feet away. His dark eyes sparkle with amusement. He’s wearing the shit out of his jeans and plain white t-shirt. “I didn’t hear you come in,” Now that his presence is known, it overtakes the room.
He walks closer and I inhale deeply.
“You were giving that plant shit.” He walks up beside me and reaches out to touch the plant.
“No. I was giving the plant encouragement,” I tell him. “Big difference.” My skin tingles and everything in the greenhouse seems more alive and brighter. I clip another leaf and start gathering the tools to put them back in the cupboard. “How’d you get in?”
Flynn lifts his finger and a key dangles. “Stella keeps an extra key in her office. Wilf lets me come here alone sometimes. I like the air.” He glances at me. “Weird?”
“Not weird. Green thumb.” I hold my thumb up in the air.
“Yeah, Wilf told me your thumb is green.” He looks at the miniature hoe I’m holding. “Looks like you’re pretty handy with a hoe,” Flynn says.
“Your brother said you were too.” I place my hand over my mouth and giggle at my own joke.
“Very funny.” He pushes back his bangs. “I really hope Kyle has no idea what a ho is.” Flynn helps me carry a few things back to the cupboard. 
I smile. “Doubtful. Not yet.” I stand on my tiptoes to place tools back in the cupboard. “I didn’t see you at lunch.”
“You noticed?”
My cheeks warm. He obviously doesn’t know my entire shift revolves around whether he shows up or not. The silence gets louder and I search for something that doesn’t sound stupid. “I’m glad you came.”
He tilts his head. The hair on my arms stands to attention.  “Do I make you nervous?” he asks. And then he grins. Slowly. 
“No,” I lie barely able to breath.
“I don’t know about that,” he says. It sounds like a challenge.
“About what?” I can’t focus. I don’t know where to look or what to do with my hands. 
“I make you nervous,” he says. His voice is low, almost a whisper.
My cheeks burn and I stare at him, mesmerized. He licks his bottom lip. The air between us sparks.
My face gets hotter. I remember what Mom used to say about Dad before she retreated into her shell.  “We don’t always choose the ones we fall for. Sometimes the chemistry chooses us.”
Is that what this is? Chemistry. Because it feels wonderful. And also scares the shit out of me. It’s more real than anything I’ve felt lately. And dangerous.

I like it.

Cover Reveal: BOUNCE (Boomerang #3) by Noelle August (NA)


A Boomerang Novel, #3
by Noelle August
Expected release date: August 25th, 2015
Published by William Morrow Paperbacks (HarperCollins)
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Format: Paperback, eBook 

Image Map

SUMMARY

Following in the bestselling tradition of Molly McAdams and J. Lynn, this final chapter in the fun and steamy New Adult trilogy by Noelle August (authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) features two aspiring musicians who must choose between their careers… 
and their sizzling attraction for each other.

Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought.

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.

Book Trailer Reveal: NOWHERE BUT HERE (Thunder Road #1) by Katie McGarry (YA)


Thunder Road #1
by Katie McGarry
Expected release date: May 26th, 2015
Published by Harlequin Teen
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: Hardcover, eBook

SUMMARY

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. 

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. 

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.
