Book Haul/Fortnightly Round-up

30 September 2012

For Review:

Dance Of Shadows by Yelena Black (ARC) : I've already read this...I got it on Wednesday and finished it the same day...I loved it so much but you're going to have to wait a long time for my review I'm afraid as it's requested I review it nearer the time it gets published....sorry!
Slated by Teri Terry : This book looks amazing! I had a little peek at it when I got it and I can't wait to read it so thank you to Teri Terry for sending it to me!
What's Left Of Me by Kat Zhang (The Hybrid Chronicles #1) : Squueeeee! I went crazy when I pulled this out the package and saw the lovely finished copy just waiting to be read! I have wanted to read this every since I first heard about it so when I got the chance to review it I literally jumped over the moon in happiness!! OMG ZOE I GOT WHAT'S LEFT OF ME!!!!!! *goes to squeal over it again*.
Crewel by Gennifer Albin (Crewel World ##1) : And another long awaited book that my hands have been itching to turn the pages of! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Luisa for sending this for me to review for Chicklish!
Blink Once by Cylin Busby : I've not heard much about this so I'm pretty excited to read this and don't you just love the cover?!


Fly By Night by Francis Hardinge (SIGNED HARDBACK!) : I won this from a competition over at The Awkward Donkey by designed a blog button and I am stoked to have it! Firstly it is a massive hardback, second it is signed! And thirdly....have you seen what the sticker says? ''Imagine a world in which all books have been BANNED.." Sounds a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!
Velvet by Mary Hooper : This is the first giveaway I have won so when I heard I had won it from Kate's Book Life  I jumped up and down with joy!
Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper : I won this with it and was sooo happy when I found out! The cover on ''Velvet'' actually feels like velvet too! :D Thanks soo much Kate!!
