Not going to lie, I freaked out when Scholastic accepted my request for The Raven Boys on Netgalley. I wasn't expecting to get accepted, so it was a nice surprise....Thanks to SR Johannes (and Kate), Netgalley, Harlequin Teen, Scholastic, Penguin, and Corrine!

What books did you get this week?

  1. Awesome sauce! That's some great stuff!

  2. The Raven Boys sounds really good. Glad you got accepted for the ARC! I also want to read that Sarah MacLean book. I read her YA book when it was published a few years ago and I keep hoping she will write more YA historical romance.

    I got a few books from the library this week. I got The Great Escape by Susan Elizabeth Phillips which I am really looking forward to reading as well as the new Origami Yoda book. I also bought The Hunger Games for my Kindle (I own the hardcovers but thought it would be nice to get the e-book since it was only 1.99) and The Girl Who Was on Fire.

    I'm glad you highlighted Code Name Verity. I just read that book last week and I loved it.

  3. Nice haul! I got Cold Kiss this week too...gotta love free books. I've been SO tempted to request The Lost Prince but I haven't read all the Iron Fey books yet, and I don't want to feel like I'm missing something.

    Here's my haul if you'd like to check it out:

  4. So many awesome books this week :) And YAY for Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake!! I love that one so hard - it's fabulous :)

  5. OMG The Raven Boys! Hooray! That Netgalley causes me more stress than it should. I just get way too click happy so I end up with too many requested books and not enough time and by the end of it I don't get around to reading any of them because reading books on my computer is tiresome. If only I had an e-reader, ay?

    And Corrinne Jackson must be pretty awesome since she gave you lots of goodies. :) Have a great week! I should check out Code Name Verity... I love YAHF.

  6. Ahh! Jealous. I haven't gotten a reply for The Raven Boys yet :p Hoping to get accepted :D That book seems awesome. <3 Hope you enjoy them all ;)
    Thank you for commenting on my mailbox. <3
