Awesome week for books this week. I wasn't actually expecting to get an awful lot but I did and it was all a bit too exciting!!



For review (thanks to penguin for both of these - you made my week!)

Matched by Ally Condie 
This is the only book I thought might turn up this week. I found out I was getting a copy last week about 10pm after my day out with a coach load of 15 year olds in the middle of London (Norfolk kids seriously do not have a clue about London, I spend the day on edge). I was so excited.. All I can say is it is definately worth all the hype surrounding it as it is awesome! I read it in a matter of hours yesterday after receiving it friday evening after work.

Beautiful Darkness by Garcia and Stohl
I did not know this was coming my way and I was so totally freaked out when I opened it. I had been at work late and got in about 9.30 and jumped around a lot when I opened in (in front of a room full of disinterested boys may I add). I am so much looking forward to this.

Bought


Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Ordered this ages ago directly after reading hush hush. Looking forward to it muchly

The Hollow by Jessica Verday
I received the second book in the series last week from Simon and Schuster so tracked this down to give the series a whirl.

Swapped
Hourglass Claudia Gray
I've only read the first one in the series, looking forward to getting around to it at some point. Even better was the fact that I swapped it for a boring book my dad was chucking out. I love readitswapit.

Present
Torment by Lauren Kate
My lovely husband went to Birmingham this week on a work function. Whilst he was in Tescos he saw that they had Torment in stock and bought it for me. He also got a copy of Fallen for free when he bought it which will no doubt end up as a present for one of my friends or on readitswapit.
