Danique Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer

I got Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr and The shock of the fall by Nathan Filer. Sara Zarr is such a great author and I loved How to save a life. The shock of the fall sounds really great and the writing-style reminds me of The perks of being a wallflower, which I really loved.

Right? It seems like every month a new series is dropping. I feel lucky to have been able to finish reading as many as I have.

I know a lot of book bloggers recycle their ARCs when they no longer have the space for it. It could be that she won them.

I enter to win ARCs all the time, and I see that sometimes, older ones are included.

But I agree, it seems weird if you don't know it :) Same with Sherlock 2-4. Those books are old! But a new edition just came out and I was lucky enough to get them :D

Angie wrote: "It was a surprise buy for me. It wasn't on my TBR or my Amazon wishlist. I had seen the cover around. I wanted something different (this has witches). It sounded interesting so I got it."

That's why I want to read it. It's got that whole Salem Witch Trails thing going for it.

Angie wrote: "Exactly why it caught my attention."

Right? The Crucible is one of my favorite plays, and I loved teaching my tenth graders about the trials. When we did the play, they literally ran to class. And they were always asking questions. Then things got really interesting when one of my students told us that her ancestor was put on trial for being a witch.
