doorstep delights #4

02 September 2013

its that time again where my book haul comes out. i take a terrible photograph. and fangirl about how i much i love what i got in the post. want to see what i received this week?..
ASDFGHJKL THIS BOOK!! Ruby, *pats head*, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FANGIRLING OVER THIS SO MUCH THAT I GOT IT. Really. The writing? PERFECT. The Characters? I WANT BLUE HAIR OKAY?! Just...read it! Oh and isn't the cover georgeous?
Another cover that I loved. The book was sorta pretty inside too..I liked it but had a few issues with it. Review to come. :)
Arclight (Arclight #1) by Josin L McQuein
THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME. BASICALLY.
AND ANOTHER COVER THAT I STROKED AND PETTED. I think this book haul should be dubbed 'the pretty cover edition'. What do you think? The illustrations in this made me so jealous. I like to call myself an ok artist but these..GAH. Oh and can i just say how awesome it is that Jodi Picoult's daughter co-wrote this with her?!
......I liked this cover too....;p I liked the concept of the book, but.....you know this guys BUT I HATE SWEARING IN BOOKS. Period.
Not read this yet but I am really intrigued, it looks good, and it's nice and thin - not that i have anything against long books! I LOVE them, but i think it should be a nice quick but interesting read. We'll see!
Now i hardly ever read paranormal books. They're just not my thing. BUT, I've heard so much about Holly Black I had to say yes to this one, i've not read it yet, but, i can tell you this - judging from the cover and the blurb - I WON'T be reading this before bed...it sounds creepy!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So that's what i got this week, not *much* compared to my usual hauls but I recieved some pretty good books so i don't mind! Although it does feel so odd not to get anything in the post.....over the last few weeks i've had at least one package a day!
What did you get this week? Link me up! And don't forget you can join in with my book haul meme: doorstep delights, any time you want, the button is in my first ever doorstep delights post. :)
*Thank you to Orion, Curious Fox, Egmont UK and Hodder and Stoughton for these pretties!
