Friday ARCs and BLADs

Not too many this week...

First are a couple books from Abrams, Splintered by A.G. Howard and The Icarus Project by Laura Quimby.  (These are actually from last week, but they came by sales rep rather than mail, so they didn't make it into the photography pile.  Anyway, I've fixed that and here they are.  Thanks, Eric!)

Next up is another pretty box from Hachette.

Okay, maybe it's not pretty so much as eye-catching.

Inside is Zom-B by Darren Shan and a poster.

Then we have another Hachette title, Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin.  It's a companion to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and both books made it to my reading list after hearing them talked up at BEA.

And last but not least, some picture books.  This week's box was from Simon and Schuster.

When a Dad Says "I Love You" by Douglas Wood, illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell
Uh-Oh, Baby! by Nancy Coffelt, illustrated by Scott Nash
The Pet Project: Cute and Cuddly Vicious Verses by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Zachariah Ohora
Take Me Out to the Yakyu by Aaron Meshon
Lottie Paris and the Best Place by Angela Johnson, illustrated by Scott M. Fischer

Red Hat by Lita Judge (Why, yes, that is a sequel to Red Sled!)
Peace by Wendy Anderson Halperin
Piggies in Pajamas by Michelle Meadows, illustrated by Ard Hoyt
Now I'm Big! by Karen Katz

That's all for this week.  What are you looking forward to?

  1. I loved Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and now I'm hooked on Grace Lin. I've got Starry River of the Sky on the top of my ARC pile at home. Can't wait to hear what you think of both books.
