New To My Book Closet

It's that time of the week again. Time to show you what bookish goodies made their way into my home and book closet (to be saved from the evil book eating cat monster named Aria). This is inspired by the various "mailbox" posts out there (eg. In My Mailbox by The Story Siren, and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews).



Purchased

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (goodreads)
Storm by Brigid Kemmerer (goodreads)
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins (goodreads)

Library stash

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong (goodreads)

I had a very busy week with books. This week was all about City of Lost Souls! I am so happy to have it in my hands. My review will be posted sometime this coming week (Thursday I expect).

Brodie who runs the amazing blog Eleusinian Mysteries has been RAVING about Storm for months. I could not find it in any store in Ottawa so I ordered it. It finally came in and I was thrilled to find out it came with the short novella that you're supposed to read prior to Storm. I hope to get to this one soon. I ordered Sweet Evil at the same time and it just came in Friday. I love the cover of this one so much! It looks amazing "in real life".

I loved The Gathering and am so excited to jump back into this story. Hopefully I have time to get to it soon.

Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!

  1. I read Sweet Evil the other day and surprisingly . . . I loved it! Enjoy City of Lost Souls (my copy unfortunately hasn't come in yet but that's what you get for ordering online hehe)!

  2. Chapters is getting a bit disappointing with their lack of new releases... I was looking for Sweet Evil and they didn't have it. Enjoy your new books! (PS You should get to Belles. I'm reading it now and thus far it's quite good)

    1. Chapters is beginning to be very disappointing. I had to order both Sweet Evil and Storm because they did not have them in stock at all. Hopefully it gets better.

  3. Hope you love Storm as much as I did! It is amazing and the brothers are totally hot. Beware: Chris is mine. Sweet Evil looks fab and I've only heard fantastic things! Happy Reading :)

  5. STORM!!! Squee! Heh. I really hope you like it now.... if you don't.... um.... *runs far away* :P

    I've had a copy of The Gathering for ages, but haven't had time to read it. SO need to get on that soon since the sequel is already out.

    Awesome, awesome books this week. I hope you enjoy them all! (especially Storm hehe).

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
