Book Haul, December 28, 2014

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea, Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, and Monday Mailbox by Marcia to be Continued.

All four are blog roundups giving you a chance to share what your weekly book haul!

Well, Christmas has come and gone, and it definitely affected my book haul, but that's okay because I was starting to fall behind.

Santa brought me a Kindle Paperwhite and some Amazon giftcards, so that was pretty exciting.  I'm excited about being able to read outside in the sunshine, since I live in sunny Arizona.

In the Mail:

All the Rage by Courtney SummersThe sheriff’s son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone
thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything—friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy’s only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn’t speak up. Nobody believed her the first time—and they certainly won’t now—but the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear. 

With a shocking conclusion and writing that will absolutely knock you out, Courtney Summers' new novel All the Rage examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women in a culture that refuses to protect them.

I'm excited to read this, and even more excited that it came from St. Martin's Press.  I usually can't get any blogger love from them. :(

To my fellow bloggers, are there any publishers that you feel snubbed by?  I feel like I'm trying to get to the cool kid's table when I apply for  a St. Martin's book! LOL
