FOR REVIEW

Jackson Pearce
Little, Brown Books
sent from the pub for review
This was a total surprise from Little, Brown and the cover is really gorgeous! I loved Pearce's other books so I can't wait to read this one too.

(finished copy) The Peculiar Stefan Bachman
Greenwillow Books
sent from pub
I received an ARC of this book from the pub a few months back so I was really surprised and excited to receive a beautiful finished copy. 

(finished copies) Just Say Boo Susan Hood
Harper Collins Children's Books
sent from pub
Harper Collins sent me these really cute kid's Halloween books (one even has stickers!) and I can't wait to showcase them next month!

(ARC) The Golden Door Emily Rodda
Scholastic
sent from pub for review
I've never read any of Rodda's books but this one looks fab!

SWAG
Venom Squad Swag (bookmarks, stickers, button)

PURCHASED
Stephen Chbosky
I can't believe I'm so late to the party when it comes to this awesome book! I bought it because the movie is coming out soon and I always like to read the book before seeing the movie, but I never knew I would love it so much! Look for my review soon ;)

Splintered looks really awesome, I remember seeing it a few months ago I think so I'll have to see if i can find it on Netgalley. I want to read The Peculiar, it looks like something I would have read in middle school and I don't read nearly enough middle grade.
I hope you enjoy all of your books!
