What's new on your shelves this week?


  1. My life after now sounds really good! :) Wonder looks interesting and I love the subject of The originals. I definitely need to read a book from Levithan. SCAAAAAARLET! Go read Cinder, this series is really, really good. Haha, I know that shallow feeling. Some covers just scream 'buy me'.. I agree about the Eve series. They aren't good, but they are addictive. I'm reading Rise at the moment :)

    Happy reading!

    1. I feel bad every day that I haven't read Cinder because I feel like the only person in the world that hasn't!

  2. I've read a few of Lionel Shriver's books and have enjoyed them all, looking forward to hearing what this one is like!

    1. I haven't actually heard of this one before, but I'm hopeful!

  3. The Language of Flowers is lovely, Kat! I love your pile of books and need to get Fractured asap. I adored Slated! Enjoy all! :)

    1. Oh I'm glad to hear that! I trust your judgement so I'll definitely bump them up the list now :-D

  4. I will never discourage people from buying books, and you totally deserved it after reading 8 books in one week! Great score on the titles too. ;)

  5. Contaminated is on my wishlist I can't wait to hear what you think of it. I'm also curious about the Icons audibook. I need to check out Follow Me Down it sounds good. Have a great week!

    My Weekly Wrap Up@ Blood,Sweat and Books

    1. I'm going to read Follow Me Down first - and it's set in a boarding school which is always interesting.

  6. Woo you got a ton of books! I was in a funk after BEA week too, but I had no money so I think it was a bit of blessing because I'd definitely be broke and with a ton more books to read. I don't consider you uneducated for not reading Gatsby (I read it in high school and hated it, lol). If I see a sticker I immediately want to pull it off, in fact it's the first thing I do when I buy a book. I hope you enjoy them all I see a few that I have to look into!

    1. Yep, that's what I am now lol broke and overwhelmed!

      Those stickers, grrrrrr - I tried to pull them off afterwards and one left a horrible sticky mark :(
