This meme is hosted by The Story Siren. Let's get down to business, shall we? Below are the books I've acquired in the past week:
So I finally got my copy of THE PROPHECY OF SISTERS by Michelle Zink - I've heard many great things about it and I can't wait to finally read it.
I also managed to get my hands on an ARC of WISH by Alexandra Bullen, yaaaay! Super excited about this one! I was planning to wait for the official release, but I sort of prefer the ARC cover versus the new official cover so I was determined to get the ARC and I succeeded, yay!
Then I also bought ANTICHRISTA and SULPHRIC ACID by Amélie Nothomb simply because The Character of Rain (read it ages ago) was amazing and I want to read more by her.
I bought A WAY THROUGH THE WOODS by Katharine McMahon because the story sounds very interesting. I currently own four books by this author and I haven't read a single one yet, but I'm fully planning to since they all sound really good!
The last book I got is GIVE ME TOMORROW by Elizabeth Lord, which I bought purely because it's about the suffragettes and I'm really fascinated by them.
Lastly, Kay Cassidy, the author of The Cinderella Society kindly sent me some signed The Cinderella Society swag (another picture here) aka some bookmarks and cards with the goooorgeous TCS cover and more info on her other projects (Living Your Five, The Great Scavenger Hunt, Teen Author Challenge etc.). She sent me this as a thank you for the questions I asked in her Ask Kay feature on her blog a while ago. Such lovely things - thanks so much, Kay! :)
ps: What the hell is going on with all the postal strikes in the UK?! So many of the books that were sent to me haven't arrived (even though it's been well over a month!!) and I suspect it's all due to the damn postal strikes, grrr! Honestly, things from the US arrive here in a week and the books from the UK (which is far closer) take over a month or don't even arrive?! Furious. :(
pps: Please excuse my absence from the blog, but I've been really very busy in the past weeks, working around the clock and only coming to sleep, then back to work. Thus I've hardly had any time or energy for reading, but things should hopefully change for the better soon so hopefully there'll be more updates in the near future. :)
