I got some fantastic books over the past couple of weeks – books that I have been longing for since… well, it feels like since the dawn of time, so you understand my excitement.

  • Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead – I ordered the US hardback of this book because I really wanted the face!covers.  I was rather floored by how gigantic this book is – if wielded as a weapon, it could do some serious damage!
  • Pure Blood by Caitlin Kittredge – I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and so took the initiative to actually buy the next book in the series.
  • Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver – Received for review from Hodder & Stoughton – Yay! The new Lauren Oliver book!  Hodder also sent along a lovely cut-out puppet thingy.  Can’t wait to read this!
  • Forever by Maggie Stiefvater – OH MY YAY!
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Received for review from Hodder & Stoughton – I read this and absolutely ADORED it.  Absolutely everything I could ever hope for and just… yeah, fantastic.
  • Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber – This was a gift from my mother. She used to be very good buds with Fritz and really thinks I’ll love his books.  Looking forward to reading it!
  • Hunter’s Prayer by Lilith Saintcrow – I wasn’t over the moon about the first book in this series, but in Lilith I trust.
  • Crypt: The Gallows Curse by Andrew Hammond – Received for review from Headline
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver – Received from Hodder & Stoughton – This is the new UK paperback of Delirium (read my review here), and while I’m not in love with the cover the book is fantastic!
  • Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre – I haven’t started this particular series yet, but in Ann Aguirre I trust.
  • A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin – MY MOTHER IS AWESOME AND GOT ME A SIGNED COPY OF THIS! I wish I had proper pictures of this to show you… but you’ll just have to take me for my word!
And that’s all!  Daughter of Smoke and Bone was the biggest surprise – wasn’t expecting to get it, nor was I expecting to love it.  A Dance with Dragons was also a huge surprise – I knew I’d get a copy eventually, but a signed one?  Never would have guessed!
