This Week In Books (3)

Saturday, June 16, 2012



Hello Everyone and Happy Saturday!

This Week In Book's is a weekly feature from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie in which we share all the awesome bookish related items we got "this week"!

It's been a while since I've done one of these.  I went on vacation for 2 weeks, and came home to all kinds of awesome stuff! I think I seriously ran around the house screaming and clutching books for an hour! haha

No vlog this week because I'm lazy and don't feel like fighting with YouTube to co-operate. I'll try to do one next week if I get anything in. I had a blast on my vacation, and I came home to some amazing things!

I hope you had an awesome week in books as well. Don't forget to leave me a link so I can stop by your blog and visit. And stop back by tomorrow to see some awesome vacation photo's! 

Bought
While on vacation, it is a family tradition to stop at a bookstore and load up on books, magazines, cds and all kinds of fun stuff. As soon as we got to our vacation home, we unpacked and headed straight for B&N. You guys know I am totally addicted to their Leather Bound Classics Editions. And they had a great sale! Buy one get one for $10! Eeek! I couldn't pass that up! With a $5 off coupon and a 20% off coupon I got these for a total steal! I was able to snag The Complete Works of Lewis Carroll and the Complete Works of Hans Christen Anderson to add to my collection. And they look GORGEOUS on my bookshelf next to my Grimm's fairytale book! :)



For Review
Nerve by Jeanna Ryan
I will be participating in the blog tour with Penguin books for Nerve in September. Jeanne sent her book and an awesome postcard note. I already devoured this and it was sooo amazing!!! I can't wait to share my thoughts on it with all of you! 

Swapped/Gifted
One thing I love about the blogging community is how sweet and generous everyone is! I got several books from quite a few bloggers. And I am super excited about ALL of them! 
Shadows by Ilisa J. Bick it's the second book in the Ashes Trilogy
Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
Over You by Emma McLauglin and Nicola Kraus
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
Wanted by Heidi Ayarbe
A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young
Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Hourglass by Myra McEntire (signed!!!! Eek!)

Thank you to Michelle from Window Pane Memoirs, Lindsay  Cummings, Nikki, and Megan for the signed copy of Hourglass! You girls rock my socks! And also a HUGE thanks to Jeanne you are so sweet!

I hope you guys had a fantastic week in books! This is 2 weeks worth of books for me since I was on vacation. So hopefully next week's edition won't be so long. I hope you guys are having a fantastic weekend with your friends, family and loved ones. I look forward to seeing you again next week!

Happy Reading!

XOXO

  7. Hope you loved your vacation!
    Glad you liked Nerve -- I hadn't requested it on NetGalley but if you loved it so much, maybe I will!! I have SO much to read this summer -- I keep telling myself I can't put anymore books on the list. And then I do!!

  10. I'm kind of dying of jealousy about Over You and Time Between Us. Normally time travel isn't my thing, but the sound of this book and early reviews are just killing me with curiosity. And I love those BN classic covers, a whole shelf of those would be absolutely gorgeous!

    Happy reading :)
