Added to the Pile + 39

Thanks to the Online Publicist and Harlequin, I received a copy of Manifest by Artist Arthur and from Cinda Williams Chima and Hyperion, I have a copy of The Exiled Queen. Thank you!

When fifteen-year-old Krystal Bentley moves to Lincoln, Connecticut, her mom's hometown, she assumed her biggest drama will be adjusting to the burbs after living in New York City.

But Lincoln is nothing like Krystal imagined. The weirdness begins when Ricky Watson starts confiding in her. He's cute, funny, a good listener - and everything she'd ever want - except that he was
killed nearly a year ago. Krystal's ghost-whispering talents soon lead other "freaks" to her door - Sasha, a rich girl who can literally disappear, and Jake, who moves objects with his mind. All three share a distinctive birthmark in the shape of an M and, fittingly, call themselves the Mystyx. They set out to learn what really happened to Ricky, only to realize that they aren't the only ones with mysterious powers. But if Krystal succeeds in finding out the truth about Ricky's death, will she lose him for good? (book back blurb)

Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden's Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn't mean danger isn't far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery - but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.

Meanwhile, Princess Raisa
ana'Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now the safest place for Raisa is Wien House, the military academy at Oden's Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wien House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.

Everything changes when Han's and Raisa's paths cross, in this epic tale of uncertain friendships, cutthroat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.

Nice additions! I have Manifest from NetGalley but haven't read it yet. I am so far behind on Chima's books but I brought 4 home for the summer. Happy reading!

I love your blog design, especially the end of each post with the vines and the book. The Mockingjay countdown is also awesome! :)

LOL! Yeah, I didn't realize I had this same book on NetGalley until I received the copy. I looked at it and went, "That looks familiar." Duh!
