I'm really excited to read the second books in the Vampire Academy series and Darkest Powers series. I really enjoyed both of the first books. :D Also from the library, I got the first book in the Final Prophecy series, which I checked out because I won the fourth book in that series from GoodReads. Another book I won and received this week was Panthan's Crucible. I actually finished reading it, and it was very good. It's the first book in a new series, so I can't wait for the next one! I would recommend it to YA-paranormal fans who are looking for something other than vampires and werewolves. It's about the Panthans, creatures created by God. They look human, and although it wasn't exactly stated, I'm assuming they are kind of like panthers. I just thought it was unique and really interesting, and hey, looks like there might be some romance. ;)

Now for the books I bought. Melina Marchetta is my favorite author, so I'm extremely happy I finally have my own copies of Jellicoe Road and Saving Francesca. Jellicoe Road is my favorite book EVER! Seriously, if you haven't read it, you need to! And read her others books! All her books are awesome. :D Okay, I also bought Rules of Attraction, which I really need to start soon, and Black & White (aka Noughts & Crosses), which I read a few weeks ago and had to buy my own copy because I loved it. Finally, I received three other books I've been really interested in reading: Knight Angels, Angel Star, and Tiger's Curse. Those three have good reviews on GoodReads, so I'm hoping I like them as well. :D

Anyway, I wasn't expecting this many books this week, but it seems everything just wanted to come in at once. So, I got a lot of reading to do. :)


  1. Oh my goodness! Rules of Attraction is so good. I just reviewed it!

  2. Wow! You got tons of awesome books! I love the cover of Knight Angels. Happy reading! :D

  3. I just bought Knight Angels, so I should be getting it next week. And we both got Jellicoe Road :) I've heard nothing but good things about it,and I can't wait to read it! Great stuff this week, enjoy your books!

  4. Awesome!
    You got Angel Star and Knight Angels,I can't wait to read both of these books!
    Hope you enjoy them all!

  5. Love the IMM this week. There are awesome books here. Hope you enjoy the Awakening, I loved the whole trilogy.
    Lots of books I've added to my TBR pile!

  6. the vampire academy series is SO GOOD. i cant wait for the new one to come out in a little less than 2 weeks!

  7. Wow, you got a bunch of great books this week! I really like the cover for Tigers Curse, although I haven't heard of the book before. Happy reading!

  8. Wow what a great bunch of books! Jellicoe Road is also on my wishlist, I hear that it is great!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog too :). I'm following you now!

  9. Lots o' books! I haven't heard of most of them, so you've given me more to look for.

  10. I read Jellicoe Road a few days ago, and absolutely loved it. I'm glad you do too, and now you have your own copy. Yay! :D

  11. I am incredibly jealous of 'Rules of Attraction'- my mom picked me up a copy in the states but I have to wait until half term to get it! I just actually read 'The Reckoning' (3rd Darkest Powers) and let me tell you, the Derek/Chloe tension just gets better! ;)

  12. You know I tried to read jellicoe Road years ago when it first came out in Australia but I just couldn't get past the first few pages. Now I'm wondering what was wrong with my 15 year old self- all these raving reviews can't be wrong. I'm getting it and giving it another shot ASAP !

    I so want Angel Star and Knight Angels too! I might just pop on over to depository now actually ... :)

  13. Great new reads. Awakening scared the crap out of me so I stopped reading it lol.

    My mailbox can be found here!

  14. Wow awesome week you had! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.
