What Did I Receive?

It's been quiet the last few weeks, with only the rare drop off from the UPS man. That's okay though-- without tons of books coming in to review, I've had more time to work on my towering TBR pile (which is down to 130, the lowest I've seen it in a while!). However, I really need to pick it up on the reviewing, even though I don't have a constant supply of ARCs coming in. I think I only had one or two reviews last month, which is horrible! Only one book this time, but I was okay with that when I saw what the book was. It was a surprise for me, but I'm very gratful that I got it. I've been dying to read it, and it doesn't come out for a few more months. It's a YA novel, but I've read her books before and I know a few of you would enjoy the book anyway!
Title: Devoured
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Release Date: September 22nd
Summary: Megan’s twin sister Remy died in an accident nine years ago, and she’s been haunting her ever since. Knowing how crazy that sounds, Megan keeps this secret to herself and tries to lead a normal life. But when she takes a summer job at Land of Enchantment to keep an eye on her new boyfriend and his lovesick best friend, Samantha, she meets fellow employee Luke who can see Remy, too. Things get even twistier because Megan’s new friend Ari is sporting a massive crush on Luke, who seems to be developing a massive crush on Megan…making for a love triangle that’s positively possessed.
Megan wants to keep her distance from Luke, but when Remy’s visions get crazy violent; she knows she needs his help. Because someone’s definitely in danger...the only question is who?
I can't wait to start on this! I enjoyed her last book, Revealers, and even though this is not a sequel it sounds really good. Plus, the cover is amazing, in my opinion. Especially the back-- it's a bigger picture of the green apple covered in red blood... very eye catching! :D I'm going to try and hold myself back and not read it until I finish a few of my other books, but I doubt I'll last long. Plus, I need to write a good review for it, so I can't wait too long to start. That's my excuse at least! One last thing: Don't forget about the Dawn Halliday contest and interview I'm holding. You have until tomorrow (Saturday, June 6th at midnight) to enter for your chance to win an ARC of Highland Obsession. Enter here! Until Next Time, The Book Queen

Have not read Marrone before. This book sounds interesting.

Estella-- She's a pretty good author. Her first book, Uninvited, wasn't my favorite, to be honest, but I thought Revealers was much better, and I have high hope for this one! I'll let you know after I finish it, but I think it's safe to say "If it sounds like a book you'd like, check it out some time!". ;-)
