A Good Week in Books (3)

So, I have had a pretty good week in books again. I won a giveaway on my friend Christina’s blog for two books! I bought two books. I got an ARC at work again. And I received a fantastic haul from Net Galley, and I’m super excited for all the new ones I just requested (including a new Juliet Marillier YA book and the first YA title by Philippa Gregory(!). But, this is what I got this week:

Shadow of Night
by Deborah Harkness (an actual adult book! I’m so excited for this!)
by Gina Linko
The Immortal Rules
by Julie Kagawa
Dark Kiss
by Michelle Rowen
by Sarah Rees Brennan

I bought these two beauties this week:

by Jana Oliver
Uglies: Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld and Devin Grayson and illustrated by Steven Cummings

*I’m not normally the biggest fan of when stories get retold in graphic novel format. But A) this is Westerfeld and if I see his name on anything, at this point, I will buy it! And B) It’s a new story from Shay’s perspective and this sounds so good!

My awesome Barnes and Noble Community Relations Manager held on to this ARC for me. She actually got to meet this author! And I’m hoping to one day meet her too.

And these are the two I won from Christina’s blog:
The Mockingbirds
by Daisy Whitney
Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles
