I've never done a book haul before, even though I've blogged for about 9 months. Call me lazy, but Saturday and Sundays are usually when I take a break from the blog, so I never sit down and find the time during the weekend to write one up, take pictures, upload pictures, etc.
So why's this week different?
Well, because I received something super exciting in the mail from the awesome publicists at St. Martin's Press and Tor Teen! Thank you so much!!! *jumps up and down*
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake - Thank you Tor Teen!
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu - Thank you St. Martin's Press.
They're absolutely beautiful!! I love the cover for both, and they're even more amazing in real life! Before this, I've only received books from publishers twice. I sent my requests for these to the publicists mid-May. At first, I had some hopes of getting them, but as the release dates crept ever closer, I thought I wouldn't get them at all, so imagine my surprise and delight when they both came this week!
I also got something really exciting in the mail. I pre-ordered Throne of Glass, and bought this and its sequal, but it came before Throne of Glass. Funny story, when the UPS guy came on Friday, I thought he'd dropped this off. I was soo excited! But it turned out to be Glitch! I didn't think I could be even be happier, but I was. I squealed and danced around and just acted plain silly. Good thing I was alone at home when that happened!
Lastly, I got these from the library. This was before I realized I'd have so many books show up at my door this week, but I still look forward to reading all of them. I'm not sure I can finish these within two weeks though with the way my schedule is right now.
So what's your haul this week? Leave me a link so I can go check it out!
