My Life in Books (12)

Ermagosh!!!! This might be my most EPIC My Week in Books yet! Inspired by Showcase Sunday by Book, Biscuits and TeaIn My Mailbox by The Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews. So this week's books include a blogger first!! I received my first ever requested ARC and it is a book I am dyyyyyying to read!!! And not only that they sent me another book as well!! OH. MY. GOSH. I. WAS. FREAKING. OUT. Happy early birthday to me!!! Eeeep!! And I got an AMAZING haul from the library! AND I had a totally hit day at the Half Price Book store. Yay!! So without further ado here is what I got this week!!!

For Review

OH MY GOSH ITS THE ELITE!!!!! DYING, DYING, DYING! Thank you Harper Teen, I cannot freak out and thank you enough! :)
Sorry, ok here's the rest :)

Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren 
Thank NetGalley, I actually already read this and my review will probably post before this goes up but it was super fun and sexy :)

The Elite by Kiera Cass 

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike 
This book sounds super cool. Paranormal and ghosts. Haven't read a good ghost story in a while, I'm excited :) THANK YOU HARPER TEEN

Dented Cans by Heather Walsh 
Courtesy of the author. Family drama about a trip to Disney World...uh, hello, sign me up! :)


If I Stay by Gayle Forman 
So these were my birthday purchases on my trip to Half Price Books. Totally just read this, saw it, and had to buy it. No regrets. 

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead 
After minimal coaxing by some fabulous book friends, I also rewarded myself with this little beauty. Can't wait to delve into these. I can already feel the obsession blooming :)

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys 
So I haven't read Between Shades of Gray yet, BUT I have a feeling I will love it and this is the author's newest book. Yes, I found a finished copy when it isn't even out yet...weird. It was like a little gift from a book faery godmother. Not asking questions :) 

FYI this is obviously is BALLER haul from the library for me. Ermagosh, I am just dying looking at these beauties. They're so pretty aren't they!?

Shoo, I really hope this book doesn't rip my soul like her other books did...who am I kidding, it'll probably be obviously I'm excited for this :)

Heard SO many amazing things about this book, it was on my Top Ten Debuts, so pumped!!

Also on my debut list!! I looooooove re-tellings and I have heard phenomenal things about this book! Eeek!

Another fantasy novel! Eeeep!! And another debut! Eeep! So excited! Can't wait to knock out this pile :)

This might be one of the best My Week in Books yet! Yay!!! So excited!!! I wish I could have included my Amazon order I placed this week but alas they didn't come in time. So you'll have to wait until next week to see what I got! :-)

Peace and love, loveys! 


  1. Can I just keyboard slam about VA again? Asdjieowapfjpdsoaawef so good! So excited you got it :)

    Also: If I Stay is good (I liked Where She Went better), Just One Day is BRILLIANT, I just started Altered and really enjoying it so far, and I can't wait to see what you think of Splintered and The Cadet of Tildor!

    Also: I totally forgot tweeting this to you but HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You got some awesome presents haha.

  2. I haven't read any of those books, but I want to read quite a few.

  3. Vampire Academy is AMAZING! I love that series to pieces! :) I am so jelly! I can't wait to see what you think of The Elite! :)

  4. Happy Birthday! Awesome haul. I LOVE the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines is almost as good. I love the covers on the Selection series, I have The Selection on my wishlist, it sounds really good. Your library grabs are awesome, I really want Splintered, Altered and Just One Day. I have Just One Day ready to pick up at the library, can't wait to read it. Happy reading.

  7. AHHHH! The Elite! I am so excited for youuuu! Also, Vampire Academy is freakin' amazing, and I hope you love it. It is by far my favorite vampire series ever. I can't wait to read Splintered! Let me know how you like it.

  8. I read Altered in January. It is really fast-paced and difficult to put down. I haven't read any Vampire Academy books, but I keep hearing amazing things. I really should devote the time to them. Anyway, enjoy all your goodies. Happy reading :)
