I broke my book buying ban this week... But, I haven't bought anything for ages and it was a special occasion... I went to FOYLES! Yay :) Here is what I bought:
Entwined by Heather Dixon (Hardback)
This book is beautiful. The cover is gorgeous, and in real life it's even more gorgeous! The leave round the edge of the book are shiny, and the image looks like a scene out of a fairy tale... It looks amazing, it sounds amazing, I can't wait to read it!
Hate List by Jennifer Brown (US Paperback)
I can't wait to read this one it looks awesome! It sounds morbid but kind of funny... Lots of people dying - but because two people made a list of people they hate! If that makes sense at all... I'm not a weirdo, I promise! :L
Blood Red Road by Moira Young (UK Paperback)
I'm really excited for this book, but also really nervous about reading it, because it's written in a different kind of style to 'normal' books. It's written like The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness which I couldn't get into, but I'm hoping that I can overlook the weird grammar and spelling and enjoy this one :) So hopefully this'll be an interesting read.
Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev (US Paperback)
This one sounds so fun :) I read a review a while ago and I really liked the sound of it, but I never ordered it because I had so much to read... And I still do, but I couldn't not buy it :L Can't wait to get to this one!
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore (UK Paperback)
This one looks awesome and I loved Rosemary's The Splendour Falls, and while this isn't a sequel, I'm sure it'll be just as good! I can't wait to read this one :D
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (UK Proof) *SQUEEE*
You have NO IDEA how happy I am to have this book. I found it on my doormat and did a little happy dance. It's a modern 'retelling' (it's more of a 'it's happening again in modern times' but I don't know what to call that and it's a bit like a retelling so that's what I'm calling it...) of Jack the Ripper, and I'm half way through it right now (which is Saturday) and I think it might just be one of my favourite's of the year. Maybe. I LOVE IT. *UPDATE: It's now Sunday and I have finished it and it is one of my favourite books of this year. Right up there with DIVERGENT and FORGOTTEN and STARCROSSED :D
Fury by Elizabeth Miles (eGalley)
SO excited for this one!! It looks amazing, and I might actually read this one on the computer! :L Thanks to Simon & Schuster Galley Grab for this one!
Nocturne by Christine Johnson (eGalley)
I liked the first one, Claire de Lune, so when I saw this one there I thought I might as well get it, because I did enjoy the first one, and I think this one will be better :) Again, thanks to Simon & Schuster Galley Grab for this one!
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab Swag (Two signed bookmarks and a signed and numbered button)
I 'won' these in a giveaway that V was doing, where you had to comment and email her and then everyone would get a signed bookmark :) So they arrived, and there were two - one for me, and one for me to leave somewhere, like in a bookshop, a library, your school, etc. So I'm using one now in my book, and I left the other one in the YA section till in Foyles last night, so if you want it, be quick! :L The button is very cool too, so thanks to Victoria Schwab for these!
Swag from Foyles
Also in Foyles, I got a bunch of bookmarks and postcards to give away in my blogoversary giveaway that is coming up next week *yay!* So look out for that, but unfortunately, the swag giveaway is UK only! :( But the main giveaway will be international as long as BD ships to you! :D
What did you all get in your mailboxes? Leave me a link in the comments and I will try and get back to you all! And I know I say this every week, but I really will try this week, I'm in a commenting mood :D
