Rewind & Review #16

Rewind and review

So first off, Awkwordly Emma won the YA Web Award for Established YA Reviews.  Thanks so much to those who nominated me and all who voted!
Second bit of news: I've started adding links for you to buy the books I've reviewed.  I won't be including Amazon (because of the big to-do with Hachette, but if that's your only book-buying option, I won't be mad at you), but I've included Barnes & Noble and my local indie, Read Between the Lynes.  I've confirmed with the owner of the store that you can order online through RBTL and they'll ship your books to you! So please support my local indie, because they're awesome.
And don't forget to check out my second book haul video down at the bottom of this post!

  1. Oh, I really want to read Fan Art! I've heard such great things about it :) I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

  2. I was reading this and I thought Fan Art looked interesting. I looked it up and I'm less interested in it. I'm not against gays, but I'm not really excited about reading it anymore.
    Funny thing, main character has the same name as my brother's girlfriend's mom.

    My Faire Lady sounds really cute and I'm desperately waiting for my library to get The Falconer.
