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 :)
I got way more books this week than originally planned... and I already have so much to read >.< Why can I not resist?! Because of the awesome, that's why.
Dear Killer, by Katherine Ewell
Uninvited, by Sophie Jordan
All That Glows, by Ryan Graudin
Between Two Thorns, by Emma Newman
The first three were available for download on Edelweiss and I couldn't resist, and Between Two Thorns is about a mirror city of Bath, and I love that type of story :)
Finding Cinderella, by Colleen Hoover
Violet Midnight, by Lynn Rush
The Faerie Guardian, by Rachel Morgan
The Krie Seekers, by A.L. Davroe
Finding Cinderella and The Faerie Guardian were freebies when I downloaded them, and Violet Midnight is on sale for 0.99$ (when I got it).
I still haven't read Hoover's Hopeless, but when I do I want to have the novella handy. And it was free. As for Violet Midnight, you had me at vampire hunter trying to blend in at college.
The Faerie Guardian because fairies and The Krie Seekers because steampunk. That's all.
Bought at the used books store
Krieg der Engel (War of Angels), by Wolfgang Hohlbein
Prophecy of the Sisters, by Michelle Zink
Burning Bright, by Tracy Chevalier
The Book of Dead Days, by Marcus Sedgewick
Moon Called, by Patricia Briggs
Iron Kissed, by Patricia Briggs
Krieg der Engel was among the first fantasy books I read as a teen! I borrowed it from the school library several times, so when I found it in the exact same edition I read back then (and that matches his other books on my shelf), I had to have it!
The Mercy Thompson series is among the UF ones I've wanted to start for a while (although I actually got book 3 instead of 2 and left the wrong one at the store >.< Damn not having enough cash on me to get them all!), and Marcus Sedgewick and Tracy Chevalier are authors I'm curious about. Burning Bright is a historical involving William Blake (a favorite poet of mine) and Book of Dead Days sounded really different and interesting and magical.
That's it! What do you guys think of my haul? Is there anything I have to move closer to the top of my neverending reading pile? And what did you get in the past week?
