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 was another one with not that many books. I've just gotten the notice that I have to leave my apartment by the end of May so I'm refraining from ordering any print books (I have to move 300 of them as it is). If I can't find a new place in the next 3 weeks, and that's what it looks like at the moment, I'll have to temporarily move back in with my parents and sister. Which sucks for several reasons, mostly costs, travel length, and paperwork. I really really hope the household gods will smile upon me with the next half dozen apartment applications I'll send out...
Anyhow, here are my new books!
For tour / review:
The Testing, by Joelle Charbonneau
Darkness of Light, by Stacey Marie Brown
Thank you, Netgalley and Rockstar Book Tours!
Isn't the cover of Darkness and Light a beauty?! I just couldn't resist signing up for the tour, especially once I'd read the description! My post goes up on May 10.
I actually got The Testing last week but forgot to put it in my post. I've heard great things but it sounds extremely similar to The Hunger Games to me. Guess I'll see for myself...
Won during the Book Blogger Twitter Con:
Pacifier 6: The Shadows Within, by Geoffrey Wakeling
Thank you, Geoffrey and Parajunkee!
eBook from Amazon:
Vain, by Fisher Amelie
I've had my eyes on it for a while and after reading some great reviews, I bought it when it was on sale for 99 cent.
*Latecomers I just bought because they're on sale on Amazon*
The Assassin and the Desert, by Sarah J. Maas
The Assassin and the Underworld, by Sarah J. Maas
The Assassin and the Empire, by Sarah J. Maas
These Throne of Glass prequels are usually 2-3$ from my location and were now around 1, so I had to get them :) I read the first one, The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, immediately after the novel and enjoyed it. I know many people are fed-up with novellas but I like that short format - I just wish they didn't have ridiculous prices such as 9$ from my location when they're 3$ in the US. I'm looking at you, Neverfall!
As for what's been going on here on the blog, my review for the Fate War: Alliance tour went up yesterday. It's a great Steampunk romance, also for those of you who are not experienced with Steampunk. You should check it out, there's a giveaway too ;)
What do you guys think of my haul? Have you read/heard of the books? And what did you get this week?
