For review:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - Orion.
This book, and the two below are surprises from Tina from Orion. I received them after talking to Tina about the titles Orion is trying to promote via their facebook pages, Fierce Fiction and Gollancz Dark Fiction. I know this book has been out a while, but I've yet to read this book, so I'm really glad I received it!

Bitten & Smitten by Michelle Rowan - Orion.
As above. This book looks amazing, I can't wait to read it! It will be reviewed on Ink and Paper.

Kitty's House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn - Orion
As above. I've yet to read the other books in the Kitty series, but have wanted to for ages, and now I have an excuse to get them! Will be reviewed on Ink and Paper when I catch up with the others in the series.

Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman - RHCB.
This book would have been great for me if it was available July '09, I could have read it for Sex in Teen Lit Month. I'm especially excited to read it as it's from a boy's point of view, there don't seem to be many novels on teenage pregnancy from the father's perspective.

The books from Orion also came with this bookmark:

Bought:

Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles
I absolutely loved realy the first book in the series, Leaving Paradise, for BI&SP Month, so I'm really excited to see where Caleb and Maggie's story takes them next!

I'm in for some good reading, methinks! :)
