Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books we got in the past week. Those can be bought, won, gifted, for review, borrowed, print or ebooks... no matter, just share what you got :)
This week ended up being quite a lot more busy for me that I had originally thought! The reason for that is mainly the big (for me) amount of books I suddenly got approved for on NetGalley. I requested Mila 2.0 in early February and by this point expected the big D for Denied because it's Harper Collins UK. So being approved was a big surprise! It's probably because that version of the book was only open for requests by European bloggers. I just started it and I'm liking it fine so far :)
Pretty Dark Nothing, by Heather L. Reid
Some Quiet Place, by Kelsey Sutton
Mila 2.0, by Debra Driza
The Sweetest Dark, by Shana Abé
But I mean seriously, isn't this also some real cover porn? o.O I've featured both Some Quiet Place and Pretty Dark Nothing as WoWs before, so I'm very excited about them! Pretty Dark Nothing is currently available as a 'read now' book on NetGalley.
Bought / borrowed:
Girl of Nightmares, by Kendare Blake
Looking for Alaska, by John Green
I'm so glad Girl of Nightmares is finally here! I've waited like 9 months for the paperback to match my Anna Dressed In Blood edition >.< Now I can't read it because of my review books :P
I borrowed Looking For Alaska from my sister - it will be my first John Green book. The sticky notes mark some of her favorite passages.
Freedom Road, by T.M. Souders
The Truth About Letting Go, by Leigh Talbert Moore
Fateful, by Cheri Schmidt
El gran teatro del mundo / Das grosse Welttheater, by Pedro Calderon de la Barca
All of them were either free or very cheap when I bought them on Amazon. The first two had been on my wishlist for a while, Fateful I got because it was free and I thought the idea of a guy who is normal/mortal by day and a vampire by night sounded somewhat new. We'll see how I like it...
El gran teatro del mundo is a play I have to read for one of my classes. It's a world literature classic and I've actually seen a very impressive production of it back in 2007 or so. I don't know any Spanish so I'm reading the German version, but you can also have it in English for free.
While you guys are here, please check out my new review & giveaway of Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson. I've also got a post for the Kick-Butt Characters Giveaway Hop, which is open internationally, and a discussion about how important the romantic plot is to your enjoyment of a book.
Alrighty, enough about me. Leave your comments about what you think of my haul below (have you read any of the books already?) and link me up to your own new book pretties :)
