Books bought

Some pre-orders came in this week. I was lucky enough to be able to read ARCs of the first three books, but they were so awesome that I needed my own copies!


A Touch Mortal Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder, #2) Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) Haven Aftertime Angel (Maximum Ride, #7)

I also finally received my order from Amazon UK! (It really didn't take that long, but I wasn't very patient about it . . . ) It started out with needing to read Finding Sky, after reading a bunch of amazing reviews, but quickly led to the discovery of other fantastic-looking UK books. Reviews will start going up in the beginning of March!

The Radleys By Midnight: A Ravenwood Mystery Warm Bodies Savannah Grey Dark Heart Forever Mortal Kiss Finding Sky

 

What I read this week

Trapped The Dragon Master (Dragon Series, #3) Love Sucks! (Bite Me, #2) Finding Sky The Radleys Future Imperfect Haven Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1)

Books I started but haven't finished (yet!)
