The Reading Pile #5

So this month I've cut back on the buying because I went overboard on my requesting. I've picked up a lot of copies to review with deadlines, so I think I won't be signing up for tours unless the book is something I am dying to read and review. Let's get this show on the road!

Between the Lives - Jessica Shirvington
I couldn't help it! It looks so cool and it's a fairly similar concept to the book I'm writing, so I had to check I'm doing something original.

Teardrop - Lauren Kate
Again, the concept for this book is really intriguing, and kind of confusing, I can't wait to get sunk in to this!

For Review:
The Earl of Brass - Kara Jorgensen
I know, I've already posted this review, but I wanted to mention it because I love supporting people, and this author is self-published, which to me is a really great thing. Let's bring more books into the open!

In a Right State - Ben Ellis
Snap with this book, the author is again self-published. I know a lot of bloggers don't have time thanks to the masses of emails they get, so it's nice that I was able to say yes to few authors this month.

Guarding Angel - S.L. Saboviec
After hosting the Blitz on Guarding Angel, I was elated to find an email waiting for me asking if I'd like to review the book. I jumped at the chance because it simply sounds awesome and the writing style of the author is stunning.

Blog Tour Copies:
Perfected - Kate Jarvik Birch
This novel sounds wonderful, with all that I loved about Wither being taken to new, different heights.
The Artful - Wilbert Stanton
I've already raved about the idea to change the classic tale of Oliver Twist into a dystopia. I think this is going to be a really good read.
Not Quite Dead - Lyla Payne
Ghosts of 18th century lady-pirates, drinking problem, family issues, handsome mayors and personal threats. This certainly sounds like my kind of book.
