Angel* by L. A. Weatherly
Slide** by Jill Hathaway (UK ARC)

* huuuuuge thanks to Donna from Book Passion For Life for getting me so many awesome birthday presents! ♥
** and huge thanks to Michelle from Much Loved Books for sending me her ARC of Slide. I'm dying to read this! ♥


The books I got for review this week:


Volition*** by Shawn Kirsten Maravel
Severance*** by Shawn Kirsten Maravel


Melody's Song*** by Kendal Ashby
Darker Still**** by Leanna Renee Hieber

*** from author
**** from NetGalley and Sourcebooks


And the most awesome thing:
My parents got me a KINDLE! ♥








I'm sooo tired today thanks to celebrating my birthday at midnight with my friends but I'm having an awesome day nonetheless. Now I'll really spend some time with figuring out my Kindle and then I'll spend more time with my family. A great 20th birthday.

What did you get in your mailbox?

  5. Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, birthday, birthday! (**to the tune of Just Keep Swimming form Finding Nemo XD)

    Awesome IMM! What edition of Forgotten is that? I've been wanting to read it for a while, but it was a UK book so i just never got around to buying it. That cover is really pretty, though!

    Darker Still! I got that one on Netgalley too, and I'm super duper excited to read it! The cover is SO PRETTY!

    Haven't read any of the other books, but they all looks really awesome, especially Angel and Slide. Hope you enjoy them all!

    And congrats on your Kindle!! I myself am a Nook user, but I think all e-readers are pretty cool, so I hope you enjoy using it. It makes reading books from Netgalley so much easier, and e-readers just open a new door to reading in general. (Lol, okay, inspiration e-reader speech is over now. XD)

    Enjoy!

  23. Happy birthday! And awesome IMM! I'm especially looking forward to Slide and Forgotten. And yay for the Kindle! My brothers bought me one when I graduated in May but I opted to wait for a newer version in November, so I'm still e-reader-less. Just one more month to wait though! :P I hope you enjoy all your books!
