Sunday's Weekly Book Recap #41

My bookish highlight from this past week was attending the Association of American Publishers, Inc. (AAP) Tri-State Book Buzz, a sneak peek preview for librarians of recently published and forthcoming books.  I came away with a fantastic assortment of published books and ARCs of children's, young adult, and adult titles. 

Special thanks to Sterling, Random House, Disney Hyperion, Macmillan, Scholastic, Penguin, Tor Teen, Sourcebooks, W.W. Norton, Workman, Soho Teen, HarperCollins, National Geographic, Simon & Schuster, Perseus, Ecco, Hachette, McGraw-Hill, Farrar Straus Giroux, and John Wiley & Sons for their interesting presentations and for providing me with exciting new reads.

Now for my full recap of the books I'm reading or have acquired this week, which I am sharing on these blogs:
