Review Copy Cleanup #1: Showing off my Pile

This is the first post for the Review Copy Cleanup challenge that I will be taking part in throughout March. The idea is that book bloggers who have a considerably large pile of review copies to read, will sign up and challenge themselves to read as many of these review copies, and write as many reviews as possible throughout the month. I started my first review copy yesterday, and am enjoying it so far.
So, I thought I'd share with you all, some of the review books I have to read, which I will hopefully be making my way through this month.

Physical books to review

A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton: My first read of the month [review copy from Hachette UK]. Look out for an interview with the author, and an international giveaway.

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: [Review copy from Hodder & Stoughton] I absolutely adored Delirium, so I can't wait to read this one as well! This will be my second read this month.

Switched by Amanda Hocking: [Review copy from Pan Macmillan] This one is quite different to anything else I've really read before, so it will be interesting to see what it's like.

Fracture by Megan Miranda: [Review copy from Bloomsbury] I've been looking forward to this one for a while now, but because it was already released when I got it, it's kind of been pushed to the back a little bit. And because I'm so excited about it, that I kind of don't want it to then be gone, once I've read it, if that makes sense. I will be reading it this month though.

Slated by Teri Terry: [Review copy from Hachette UK] This one sounds particularly interesting, so I can't wait to get round to it later this month.

Obviously I have more physical review copies than this, but there are others that are not released until June/July and I am attempting to prioritise.

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel [NetGalley]: I had this one a fair while ago, and it has already been released, but it remains on my to-review list. I'm usually sceptical about zombies, but having heard some great things from friends about the book, I have decided to stick it on the list for the month.

Shadowlander by Theresa Meyers [NetGalley]: Again, this is another that I've had for a while now, but can't wait to get my teeth into. Looking forward to this!!

Stolen Away by Alyxandra Harvey [NetGalley]: I really enjoyed My Love Lies Bleeding, the first in the Drake Chronicles, so I'm really looking forward to this one! A definite choice for this month, if I manage to get around to it!

The Mayfair Moon by J. A. Redmerski: This one is for a blog tour that I will be taking part in later in the month. There will be a review and an eBook giveaway, so keep your eyes peeled!

Life is but a Dream by Brian James [NetGalley]: This is one of the few non-fantasy based review books I have, so I'm looking forward to something a little different with it. It is published on March 27th, so you will be able to get your hands on it very soon!

Celine - I'm reading A Witch in Winter at the moment. I'm just under 200 pages in, and it's fairly good. A solid 4 stars at the moment, I think.

Rebecca (Kindle Fever) said...

A Witch in Winter and Switched both looks awesome! And I have Life Is But A Dream and The Mayfair Moon as well:) Can't wait to read them. Also; Dearly, Departed is seriously awesome! <3 Good luck. :D

Great pile! I also really liked the "My Love Lies Bleeding" series. I wished Harvey wrote more on the two girls though. They needed a book each!

I'm now your newest follower.

Here is my pile if you want to check it out :D
