For review:

Forgotten by Cat Patrick - Egmont
Oh my god, how AMAZING does this book sound?! A surprise review copy, but one I don't mind receiving, because, EEE, it sounds so good! I'm reading it now, so far so good! One for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman - RHCB
I was lucky enough to get a manuscript of Where She Went so I can read it for Death and Bereavement Month. I absolutely loved If I Stay (review coming in July), so I'm so glad RHCB were happy to send me a copy! I'm really looking forward to it!

Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien - S&S Children's Books
A dystopian novel that will work for 2011 Debut Author Challenge. It's dystopia, so I'm wary, but I have loved most of the dystopians I have read, and this one does sound intriguing. I'll give it a go.

The Taker by Alma Katsu - Random House
This book is an adult urban fantasy, and will be reviewed on Ink and Paper. It sounds so intriguing, I'm really excited to give it a go and see what it's about!

Won:

Sing Me to Sleep and Taken By Storm by Angela Morrison - from Angela.
I won these on Angela's Cayman Summer blog for her comment contest. It turns out I actually gained the most entries - not just with comments, but all the other extra entries - by around 30 entries. Whoop! And I won a signed hardback first edition of each book, and a copy of Cayman Summer once it's released. I'm so happy!
