I recevied some awesome books this week

For review

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (thanks Walker books for this aweome book!)

Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.
           When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
           Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.
           Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa.
           As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all. 

I was incredibly excited to be offered this book and extremely excited when it arrived. It is awesome (review will be up on Tuesday) 


The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels (click link for decription)

I have wanted this for a while and was gutted that I couldn't get it in the UK but I have now finally managed to get it yay!


One day by David Nichol

I don't really know a huge amount about this but it was recommended to be by my librarian friend (I would go the library more if I could go to her library but I can't as it is in a prison)

The city of ember by Jeanne DuPrau

Skinned by Robin Wasserman

I wanted some books that were dystopian as I have really enjoyed the dystopian fiction I have read in the last month - so I had a look at a list of goodreads and then saw what of that list I could find on readitswapit. Looking forward to them both

I also received a lovely little swag pack from Denise Jaden which included some signed bookmarks for Losing Faith. I will be sharing them via the blog soonish!

I missed one! I received restoring harmony from UK book tours! It looks fab! Thanks lyndsey


I cant wait to read CA!=) ooh and you have the Thirteenth Chime!1=0
