Top Ten Tuesday: Last 10 Books That Came Into My Possession


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish.

This weeks topic is:

Last 10 Books That Came Into My Possession 


This is hard as I have gained about 40+ books in the last two weeks alone. I went a bit too crazy on Amazon, but then I also got a lot of review copies through. The main reason for the mass buy is for books to take with me to get signed at YALC, it will work out cheaper for me this way rather than buying them on the day.

Bought


I'm going to pretend it's not cheating to count these 9 books as 1! It's a series after all and I bought them as 1 item on Amazon... so IT COUNTS!

The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare

I am cheating again, but I bought this in a boxset so I am letting them count as one. I bought these as I plan to get them signed by Cassandra Clare when I am at YALC.

Read Me Like a Book by Liz Kessler, Made You Up by Francesca Zappia, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes, Every Breath by Ellie Marney

All four of these are ones I bought because of all the glowing reviews I have seen for them all! Very excited to get to read them all. 

Won

The Potion Diaries by Amy Alward

I lucked out and won this on Goodreads. I've already finished it and thought it was a really fun and easy read. 

Review Copies

Demon Road by Derek Landy, A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston, Night Owls by Jenn Bennett

I got a signed copy of Demon Road and died! I was desperate to read that because, not only have I heard great things about Landy's other series, it sounds very much like Supernatural, which is one of my favourite TV shows. I've finished it and ended up really enjoying it, whilst thinking it could have done with being a little shorter so it didn't feel like it dragged in the middle. I'm going to start one of the other two next and I am very excited, both sound amazing!




YAY! I've blogged so much this week that I actually have posts for this!!!

  7. You have ALL the Skulduggery Pleasant books? My little bookworm heart is so envious of you now. Those books are so amazing. I hadn't heard of Demon Road though. Looks like another Derek Landy book for me to hunt out now. His writing style is hilarious!

  9. First of all: I LOVE your blog header, gorgeous design.

    Secondly, I love a bit of creative accounting when it comes to book counting, if it's the same series it's totally one ;) I've been hearing such great things about The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly. Enjoy your books!

  12. Books! The Infernal Devices is one of my favourite trilogies. Far superior than the Mortal Instruments.
    I also really want to read Made You Up and Every Breath. Thankfully my library has them for when I can get to them.
    I'm really eager to read A Thousand Nights. I recently read and absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn. And it seems like the perfect follow up.
    Happy reading!

  14. I'm so freaking happy you're going to read The Infernal Devices!!! This series is seriously the best. It's what got me addicted to reading. I assure you you will need a shoulder to cry and be happy on. My shoulder is free and available. :) Can't wait to fangirl with you!!! Have you read the Mortal Instruments? I'm so excited for the TV show. The babe that is Matthew Daddario is so *heart eyes times a million* though I kinda miss Lily Collins playing her cause I love her so much!!!! Lucky you, you'll meet Cassandra. Have fun at that event!!! I've been wanting to read The Sacred Lies and Made You Up. Tell me what you think once you've read it! Your blog is so freaking pretty. Love it!!!! :)

    1. HAHA!! THANK YOU!!! But now I am a little bit nervous to read it as I don't want to cry. I didn't meet her in the end, I was too shattered to wait around.
