A Good Week in Books (5)

So technically this good week was last week, but last week I was house-sitting/cat-sitting and all the books I wasn’t reading at the time were at home.
I bought some books. I got all my pre-orders in the mail! I got a couple of books on NetGalley. I won some books from a blog giveaway. I got some free books from work. And I was sent one book in the mail to review from the publisher.
I bought these two beauties at my favorite independent Chicago bookstore: Women and children First.
The Agency: The Body at the Tower
by Y.S. Lee (It’s book 2 in a series I started a while ago. Book 3 is already out, so I have some catching up to do! The first one was such a fun YA mystery!)
Blue Thread by Ruth Tenszer Feldman (Never saw this one before. It’s a YA book that deals with women’s rights and the suffragists, so how I know I have to like it)

I bought this one at my store, which is not independent, but will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve been going to Barnes and Noble since I was kid. And this one is signed!

The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi (It’s book 2 in a series I started last year. I was really impressed with the first book, so I’m really looking forward to this one!)

I got these wonderful pre-orders in the mail!

City of Lost Souls
by Cassandra Clare
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
Insurgent by Veroinca Roth

I got these books for free, at work!
The Iron King
The Iron Queen
The Iron Daughter
The Iron Knight
all by Julie Kagawa (I haven’t read this series yet, so I’m so ready to start these books that so many people/bloggers have loved.)

I got these two books on NetGalley:
Sorcery and Cecilia
by Patricia C. Wrede (I read it a long time ago, but definitely need to re-read this one! Thank you Open Road Young Readers)
Anything but Ordinary by Lara Avery (Thank you Disney-Hyperion)

I got this one to review from Disney!

The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan

And I won these pretties in a giveaway. Thank you, Lisa!

 all by Jennifer L. Armentrout (This is another series I’ve been meaning to read! These books sound so good! Plus, they, along with matching bookmarks, are all signed! Again, Lisa, thanks for such an awesome giveaway!)


  1. You got some great books I really want to read the Iron Fey series and the Jennifer L Armentrout series! Have Fun reading!

  2. You got a lot of nice books. I can't wait to hear what you think about Bitterblue.
