  1. Oooh fantastic books that Stephanie got this week! I picked up Bitten by Kelley Armstrong a while back because I heard it was set in Toronto... Looking forward to checking it out!
    Evie @ Bookish was also raving about Goddess Interrupted series.. I guess I'll have to add that to my list too :)

    1. I really enjoyed The Goddess Test. My review is here. I will be reading and reviewing Goddess Interrupted soon so you can come back to see what I think!

      And the Kelley Armstrong are definitely worth checking out. I didn't have the whole series so I took advantage of the Book Depository sale to complete the series (or almost!)

    1. I only read the first 2 books of the Parasol Protectorate series, and this is the 3rd book that I bought. I'm trying to drag out the series because I don't want to see it finished! Although, Gail Carriger is writing a spin-off series... Awesome!

  5. Wow so many good books ! I heard amazing things about Hemlock I really need to buy a copy. I just finshed Insurgent I'm a little disappointed because I didn't like it as much as I liked Divergent but it's still a good book ! Oh and Born Wicked is awesome ! It's such a great debut novel and it's one of my favorite book in 2012 already.
    Happy reading :).

    1. I'm sad to hear Insurgent was a bit of let down. It often happens with book 2 of trilogies. I'm still very anxious to read it because of how Divergent ended. I know, I know, I bad for not having read it yet but I'll get to it eventually lol!

    1. Averia does have a nice cover! Unfortunately, it is in French. I went to a French book fair this week and I just had to show the pretty books that I bought there too.

  20. Great book haul Stephanie! I'm drooling slightly over your copy of Hemlock! And I keep meaning to read the series by Gail Carriger! Have you read the first book, Soulless? And was it any good?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I read the first 2 books. Soulless was my favourite out of the 2, and now I'm ready for book 3, the one that I just bought. This series was really my first forage into Steampunk, and now I'm hooked. I think Gail Carriger did a really good job introducing me to the genre because I keep going back to it!

      If you want to know more, you should really check out Jenn's reviews here on the blog!
