This was going to be a slow week – but I’m afraid a 3 for 2 deal at Waterstones got the best of me… shameful, I know. ¬†ūüôā

Two books this week for The Book Depository Рboth of which came with lovely customer-designed bookmarks.  Twenty winners were selected, and have now been sent out in books across the world.  Take a look at the Winners Post at Bookdepository.  I had to include my favourite bookmark Рwhich I fortunately received this week.  Those three birds you see to your left are feature on the bookmark by Jehanne Silva-Freimane from Latvia.  I just think it is hysterical and literary Рawesome combination!

On to this week’s stash!

I got two YA Paranormal books this week. ¬†Blue Moon by Alyson Noel has just been released here in the UK. ¬†I liked, but did not love, the first in The Immortals Series, Evermore. ¬†It’s paranormal hero, Damen, was a serious let down. ¬†Hopefully he will improve in this book!

I also got a copy of Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz Рthis series is only now being released in the UK, but has gotten a ton of publicity since its release.  I somewhat sceptical that I will enjoy this book Рthe Gossip Girl similarities are not something I like Рbut I will try to keep an open mind!

From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris joins my Sookie Stackhouse TBR pile.  It is the eighth in the series, but I have only finished 4 of the books!  I am not sure if I like the covers that feature characters from True Blood, but whatever gets people reading her series.  As much as I enjoy the True Blood TV series Рthe books are very different!

Angels of the Deep by Kirby Crow is a urban fantasy book mixed with some romance.    It is supposed to be very, very dark Рwhich the cover definitely enforces.  Kudos to cover artist Analise Dubner for the great design.  It is as stunning in real life as I had imagined it.  ♥

So, how was your week?
