My Week in Books (54)

Credit for IMM goes to The Story Siren

My first order of business this week is to direct you to this post from Thursday. I need your help picking out a book to read this week! (Maybe this could turn into a weekly thing?) Any comments would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Books received for review

I got the care package to end all care packages from my awesome bookish friend:
 Fever by Lauren DeStefano, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, A Million Suns by Beth Revis, and Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer

I'm pretty sure I screamed like a cheerleader in a horror movie when I opened this package. Definitely scared the bejeesus out of my poor dog!

Books bought

Darkness Unbound (Dark Angels, #1) Darkness Rising (Dark Angels, #2) With the Enemy (Tomorrow Girls, #3) Set Me Free (Tomorrow Girls, #4)

Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur
Darkness Rising by Keri Arthur
With the Enemy by Eva Gray
Set Me Free by Eva Gray
(I love this series - these are #3 and #4.)

Hunger Games Collector's Edition

And I have to admit it... I bought the collector's edition of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins... even though I already have a boxed set of the series. What can I say? It's so pretty! :)

  4. Oooh, the Hunger Games Limited Edition . . . shiny ! I think if there is any special edition I would want it would be Hunger Games. Sorry, Harry Potter.

  5. Thanks, everyone!

    And Kat C, your comment made me laugh! It is totally HG over HP, hands down. :) I'm trying to decide whether I can bring myself to open the collector's edition (it's shrink wrapped) or if I want it to remain in mint condition. I'm such a dork!
