In My Mailbox [21]


Yay for a great week!!

Received for Review
Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)
^^ Thank you Little Brown!!

Bought
I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1)
Everlasting

Swapped
The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey, #2)

I was feelin' sorry for myself because I had 3 tests this week, so I binge-bought 2 hardbacks, which I rarely ever do. I try really hard not to be hb's retail price, but what can I say...I have a problem.

And thank you so MUCH to Little Brown for sending me Beautiful Darkness! ((Now I just need to read BC))

Currently Reading -
*Still* on The Maze Runner, but will hopefully finish tonight or tomorrow. Question for those who read this book - did it take you a long time to read this? I don't know what my deal is. Dashner's writing style is pretty easy to read, but I'm doin' 40 pages a night instead of 100. Arrgghhh!

In other news...
I am about 70 followers away from ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!

Oh man! I am totally burning with envy right now! XD I can't wait to read "Beautiful Darkness" or "I am Number Four". I haven't read "The Iron King" yet, but I've got it on my shelf.

Good luck with those tests. School kicks rocks. >.< I was out for FOUR days this past week due to dizziness. Buummmmerrr...So I've got a heckuva lotta makeup work--binge-buying is a good idea. ^_^ Thank you for the inspiration.

Great week, chica! :)

(OH! I shipped out P.o.t.M.B. today! Shhh...secret code language. *shifty eyes* XD)

Melissa said...

Ahhhh awesome books, Amelia! I'm so excited to see you got I AM NUMBER FOUR. A lot of people disliked it, or so I'm told, but I thought it was really good (despite a bit of an unrealistic love interest haha)

Either way, enjoy! :)

3 tests?? I say you totally deserved a little book-shopping therapy! You got some great books, too! I'm reading Beautiful Darkness this week and I can't wait to get started. I still need to start the Iron King series---I've heard such great things about it!

Enjoy these!

You got Beautiful Darkness and still haven't read BC? Gurl, you need to get on that because Beautiful Creatures is an awesome book! I loved Everlasting so I can't wait to see what you think of it.

I'm loving this blog! I'm not entirely sure how I found it. Looking forward to reading more!

I loved the Maze Runner but it definitely took me some time to get into it and have it gain momentum. You will get to a point where you can't stop reading it. I can't wait for The Scorch Trials to come out!

3 tests! Sounds like it was a well deserved book binge. Enjoy!
