A fab week for books this week. I had some titles that I preordered ages ago turn up early and received some awesome review titles.


 For review

Vampire Academy books (shadow kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit bound). I received a lovely email this week asking if I was interested in reviewing the final Vampire Academy book. I emailed back saying I only had book 1 and 2 and hadn't quite got round to reading them. My lovely contact at penguin sent me book 3 - 5 so I catch up before book 6 is released. I have since whizzed round book 1 and am now on book 2 and have a awesome themed feature week in mind. Watch this space).

I also received a proof copy of Crusade by Linda Press Wulf from Bloomsbury. It looks like a wicked book (the cover looks amazing - follow the link to see it on goodreads) and I am very excited to read it.

Swapped

I got Alpha by Rachel Vincent in a swap this week. I really need to get caught up with this series as it has been over a year since I've picked one up.

Bought

Two very exciting books turned up this week which I had on preorder and wasn't supposed to get until December. I am so excited about both of them! I got The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney which I have just started reading. I haven't read a debut novel in ages so I am pleased to have one to read. I also got The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting which is another book I will have to read very soon (and also a debut novel).

I bet reading the Vampire Academy books in a bunch gives you a whole different take on the series than if you had read them among bunches of other books like I did. Even so, I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. I have already pre-ordered it. My YA Mailbox is here. Happy reading!
GREAT selection this week...and how cool that your contact sent extra books so you could catch up! I saw Alpha at the store but was afraid I wouldn't understand since its part of a series...I need to catch up on those. Have a great week! My IMM is here: http://nikkibrandyberry.wordpress.com/

Lucky you! I've yet to read the VA books but will one of these days. I can't believe they sent you the ones you needed, how cool is that!

Thanks for stopping by my blog & saying hi -- I've added you back :)
Charlie said…
Thanks for stopping by. That reminds me, I need to put Body Finder on my TBR list. I've heard so many great comments about the book. I'm eager to read that one soon.
