Dirty Little Secrets by CJ Omololu.
Publisher: Walker Books For Young Readers.
Won from Ellie @ Ellz Readz.

Everyone has a secret.

But Lucy’s is bigger and dirtier than most. It’s one she’s been hiding for years—that her mom’s out-of-control hoarding has turned their lives into a world of garbage and shame. She’s managed to keep her home life hidden from her best friend and her crush, knowing they’d be disgusted by the truth. So, when her mom dies suddenly in their home, Lucy hesitates to call 911 because revealing their way of life would make her future unbearable—and she begins her two-day plan to set her life right.

Yeah, not having the best month book-wise. I haven't started requesting ARCs yet, so my book supply comes from contest winnings or purchases; neither of which I've been having that much luck with lately. Hopefully that'll change soon.

Hope you all got some awesome stuff!


  1. DLS! I've heard great things about it! It's on my TBR pile.. so hopefully I'll get to read it soon. Happy Reading! =)

  2. In December and January, I was getting tons of books. (I don't request ARCs either, so mine also came from contests)
    But last month I didn't get any books, and this month I've only got a few.
    Hopefully the rest of you month looks better.
    And if you want, you really could start requesting ARC, you've got a widely popular blog with frequent posts and lots of dedicated followers, all things that publishers look for in reviewers.
