The Queen's Library (19)

For Review
Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst

Autographed Books Won from April
White Cat by Holly Black (REVIEW)
Red Glove by Holly Black
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
The Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan

I'm surprised the "won" books made it since they lost their original wrapping along the way, got a bit banged up and bent. Plus, my post office lost the package, found it, and then I had to pay for the replacement box USPS put the books in before they let me receive the package. Kind of a miracle they made it to me, all things considered!

Purchased Audiobooks
Matched by Ally Condie (REVIEW)
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

With the Whispersync technology (read kindle books + listen to audio version at the same time on select devices), some audiobooks are discounted if you own the Kindle version. Since I own the Kindle versions of Matched and WfE, both audiobooks were only $3.95 each on Audible! I couldn't resist a deal like that.

Many thanks to Sarah Beth Durst + Simon & Schuster for VESSEL! And huge thanks to April for the signed books!  :)

  11. Wow, congrats on the win! I love those new Holly Black covers. Vessel sounds really great too. I wish I had a longer drive to work so I could listen to audiobooks again (not them I'm complaining about a short drive). Happy Reading!
