A Good Week in Books (28)

My book week was insane! Seriously, this is my best book haul probably since ALA. I purchased one book I’ve been waiting on (that just came out Tuesday). I got 10 birthday books on my birthday book adventure (courtesy of my family)!!! Seriously, best birthday present ever! I received 3 finished books for review in the mail. And I got a gigantic haul from Net Galley that is full of goodies I’ve been anxious to read.
I purchased this beautiful book on Tuesday (date it came out…), and I’m so excited to start it soon:
The Evolution of Mara Dyer
by Michelle Hodkin
My birthday books (Thank you, family!), with the book above:

by Terry Pratchett (signed!)
Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr (I own an audio version, but I need to own hard copies of all of her things, I just do)
Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough
Mystic City by Theo Lawrence (shiniest cover ever!)
Dearly Beloved by Lia Habel (!!!)
A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper (Read and borrowed this one from the library a long time ago, and am now only realizing it’s the first in a series!)
The Fitzosbornes in Exile by Michelle Cooper (book 2)
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally (Been wanting this for forever!)
Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver (This author pretty much just completes me)
For Review (Thank you, HarperCollins!):

Dark Star by Bethany Frenette (So, so pretty!)
Hand in Hand: Ten Black Men Who Changed America (This gorgeous book is going to be donated to a place I know could really use it!)
The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima
 From Net Galley (Thank you, Penguin Young Readers!):

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (1/8/13)
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys (2/12/13)

I have so many amazing books to read, I’m at a loss for words. Seriously, I feel so lucky after this week! How was your week in books?


  1. Ooh nice haul! The Evolution of Mara Dyer is fantastic and I didn't even like the first one that much >.< I'm also excited for Paper Valentine.

  2. Holy crap, girl! Your birthday books look so incredibly amazing! I really want a lot of your NG haul, but I will resist the temptation and keep up my digital book ban!
