Tynga's Reviews to show off all the pretty book goodies we got over the past week. You can include print as well as ebooks, gifted, won, borrowed, bought, whatever...
I got quite a lot of books this week, even though I wanted to put myself on a ban. Yeah, epic fail. But I'm not really sorry, because what I got was awesome ^^ Some of it I had already ordered anyway... but now I really need to stop buying so many books!
Here's what I got for review:
The Nightmare Affair, by Mindee Arnett
Marking Time, by April White
I'm on the tour for The Nightmare Affair (stop on February 28) and I'm excited for it! Can't dig into it right away though...
I was approached by the author about reviewing Marking Time after I saw it on someone else's blog and put it on my TBR. The description of time travel to the Victorian times, boarding school for gifted people, and Jack the Ripper really intrigued me!
Books I'd meant to order forever, finally did buy, and took ages to arrive:
Insurgent, by Veronica Roth (I'm reading it and forgot to put it on the photo)
Embrace, by Jessica Shirvington
The Faerie Ring, by Kiki Hamilton
Those are the ones I'd ordered new . I got Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson as a used book from Amazon in supposedly 'good' condition but yeah... I realized that 'good' is a very relative estimate -__-'
The Taker, by Alma Katsu
Lost in Time, by Melissa de la Cruz
These two I found in the bargain box at a local store for only 5 bucks each. That's about a third of what I'd usually pay, so yay :D I've been curious about The Taker for a while, and even though It'll take me time to catch up with the Blue Bloods series to get to Lost in Time, I'd have been stupid not to take advantage of finding it so unexpectedly.
Books I got free or cheap on Amazon:
Silver Lake, by Kathryn Knight
The Deepest Cut, by J.A. Templeton
Demon Kissed, by H.M. Ward (free on Smashwords)
Surrender, by Rhiannon Paille
So, this is it... I like all the books and hope I'll get to them soon! Which is actually fairly realistic with the print copies because I've been reading like mad lately. All the print books in last week's haul? Already devoured them. Writing reviews, especially for books I enjoyed, is so much harder though...
So what do you guys think of my haul? Have you read any of those? What should I start with when I finish Insurgent? And of course I'm curious about what you got this week, so leave me links :)
