Two books this week for The Book Depository – both 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 – which 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 – awesome 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 – this 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 – the Gossip Girl similarities are not something I like – but 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 – the 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 – which 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?
