I had another brilliant week this week! I got some very exciting blog/book-related news, received some ace books for review, and read two of the most amazing books I've ever read - The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (this is probably now my #3 all-time favourite YA book, after The Book Thief and Twilight). If you're in the UK, look out for TSITP being published in June... you won't want to miss this one!

Here's what I got this week...


For review:
  • White Cat by Holly Black (UK proof/ARC. Duplicate - Carla will be having this!)
  • Forget You by Jennifer Echols (US ARC. Signed. Thanks SO much, Jenn!)


Bought:


Gift:
  • Swapped by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja (Signed, and has the best inscription ever. Thanks Luisa!)


Won:
  • House of Night tote bag from Atom UK. Very cool. Thank you!

Happy reading, everyone!

You always have the best book weeks! Also, I have to say that I'm very jealous that you got Forget You since I'm a huge fan of Jen's books and I keep hearing the greatest things about it. Though, I hope you enjoy it along with the rest of your awesome looking books! (Rules of Attraction is amazing, by the way!) I'll be looking forward to reading your reviews. Happy reading.
