#Bookaday Over Christmas Break

I am happy to report that I succeeded in my quest to read a #bookaday over winter break.  Expect reviews in the coming weeks (and months, for some of these ARCs!), but here is a list of  the books I read:
Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore by Mike Sorrentino and Chris Millis- Yes, seriously. Jersey Shore is my guilty pleasure and I got this book for Christmas.  It is hysterical!

Monsters of Men: Chaos Walking: Book Three by Patrick Ness- Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!

Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue- I actually made time to read an adult book, and it was well-worth it.

The Fortune of Carmen Navarro by Jen Bryant- I loved this take on the opera, Carmen.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver- You know I love a good dystopian, and this is the first in what promises to be a great series.

I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan- This was an ARC I received from the publisher, and it did not disappoint. It takes a look at fate, coincidence, love, abuse, and the power of a single person on another’s life.

Father of Lies by Ann Turner- A historical fiction about the Salem Witch Trials.

The New World by Patrick Ness- A novella prequel to the Chaos Walking trilogy. Just as fantastic as the rest of the series!

Bumped by Megan McCafferty- I love Megan McCafferty. Her Jessica Darling series is on my list of all-time favorites. Bumped is her first official foray into YA, and it’s a dystopian! Absolutely wonderful!

The Trouble with Half a Moon by Danette Vigilante- My first 2011 debut! A great middle grade read.

And I am currently in the middle of reading Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. Expect to hear lots more about this one!
