Feed My Reader (4): The Holiday Edition

Feed my Reader is my excuse to highlight the latest e-book additions (a-la Showcase Sunday/Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday). Ever since I made the executive decision to expand my e-book collection (and save space) I’ve gone a bit e-book mad. These recent acquisitions were all for my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge – I had no choice! 😉

 Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

There is no better holiday read. 🙂

Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas

I like Lisa’s historical novels, so trust her to do something suitably cheery!

Happy Holidays and Happy Reading everyone!

December 2013 Book Haul!

Another month, another book haul. This month, you’ll notice a larger than average number of books by a certain science fiction author… my all-time favourite, Ann Aguirre. 🙂

December 2013 Book Haul

  • I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter – Having lurved her Heist Society series, I am hoping this one will be just as awesome!
  • Rotten by Michael Northrop – Basically, if you put a dog on the cover I will buy your book.
  • The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge – As I suspected, this book is even more gorgeous in real life.
  • Perdition by Ann Aguirre – Her new series! *happy dance*
  • Horde by Ann Aguirre – Final book in the series… *sad dance*
  • Twinmaker by Sean Williams – This is my second copy of this book (sent for review), so…. giveaway!

That’s it for now! I have a few more I am waiting to receive, but all in all I am happy with my lovely new hardcovers. 🙂

Feed My Reader (3) – Of Beasts, Beauties and Weres

Feed my Reader is my excuse to highlight the latest e-book additions (a-la Showcase Sunday/Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday). Ever since I made the executive decision to expand my e-book collection (and save space) I’ve gone a bit e-book mad.

The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan – Goodreads

I’ve already read this one and… I was not a fan. It had a few good points but overall it wasn’t the best.

Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay – Goodreads

I adore the beauty and the beast tale, so I am loving the idea of this sci-fi retelling.

False Memory by Dan Krokos Full Blooded (Jessica McClain #1) by Amanda Carlson

False Memory (False Memory #1) by Dan KrokosGoodreads

I got the second book in this series at BEA so… yeah. Need to read the first first! I’ve seen very good reviews for this series on goodreads, so I am rather hopeful.

Full Blooded (Jessica McClain #1) by Amanda CarlsonGoodreads

I was reminded about this series when the second book came out and finally nabbed myself a copy. I’ve heard somewhat mixed reviews about this one: some people loved it and others were rather “meh”. Since I am a big werewolf fan, I really hope I enjoy it!

 

Feed My Reader (2): Of Dragons and Droughts

Feed my Reader is my excuse to highlight my latest e-book additions a-la Showcase Sunday/Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday. This week I’ve got a tonne of gorgeous YA novels… and a cookbook!

Scorched by Mari Mancusi Starling by Lesley Livingston

Scorched (Scorched #1) by Mari MancusiGoodreads

I really, really, really wanted a copy of this when I went to BEA – but tragically they were out by the time I got round to meet the publishers! I cannot wait to get to this one! … DRAGONS!

Starling (Starling #1) by Lesley Livingston – Goodreads

I haven’t read any of Lesley’s books, though I have quite a few. This one stars a FENCER so, yeah, I had to have it.

Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis Inhuman by Kat Falls

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnisGoodreads

I’ve been lusting after this book for a while! Love that this is a standalone YA dystopia.

Inhuman (Fetch #1) by Kat FallsGoodreads

I had this in a Waiting on Wednesday quite a while ago as I loved Kat Falls’ Dark Life. Still not a big fan of the cover, even though they’ve changed it from the ARC.

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry Make It Vegan with Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits #1) by Katie McGarryGoodreads

I read both Dare You To and Crash Into You – and loved them to bits. I had to get the first book to complete the set!

Make It Vegan with Isa Chandra Moskowitzfree download here

I love Isa’s cookbooks, so nabbed this immediately when I saw it was available for free!

That’s all for now – let me know if you have any of these and what you think! 

Book Haul: November 2013

I got some absolutely gorgeous review books this month – every single one of which I am super duper excited about. Here’s what I’ve received/bought lately a-la Showcase Sunday/Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday.

For Review:

Feed My Reader (1): Floating Islands and Kissing Boys

Feed my Reader is my excuse to highlight the latest e-book additions (a-la Showcase Sunday/Stacking the Shelves/Mailbox Monday). Ever since I made the executive decision to expand my e-book collection (and save space) I’ve gone a bit e-book mad.

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

ARC: Crash into You (Pushing the Limits #3) by Katie McGarryGoodreads

I was surprised by my love for Dare You To and was super, super happy to get a copy of Crash into You! (Though – for the record – I much prefer the US covers.)

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan – Goodreads

I just had to support this book. Serious kudos to the publisher for going all out with the cover!

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano  Unchained by J. Lynn

Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1) by Lauren DeStefanoGoodreads

I’ll admit it: I’ve never read Lauren’s Chemical Garden series and… I probably never will. The premise just never really appealed to me. But Perfect Ruin drew me in with the words “floating island”. I just have to see what they are talking about!

Unchained (Nephilim Rising #1) by J. Lynn (aka Jennifer L. Armentrout) – Goodreads

No idea what to expect from this book, I just knew that I had to have it. I’d never before seen a nephlim as the hero/heroine of an urban fantasy novel. I know Armentrout has a lot of fans, so I really need to try out her work.

 That’s all! I’m most excited about Crash into You – I will probably be starting that next. 🙂
