New Distractions #02


New Distractions is a weekly feature on Fictional Distraction, inspired by various memes that make us share the new books we got during a week, e.g. In My Mailbox by The Story Siren, This Week in Books by Pop Culture Junkie and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews.



The book I received last week:


Bought:






Just receiving one book last week is really good for by tbr-pile (especially since I already read and loved The Immortal Rules - my review), but I'm still waiting for two pre-orders to arrive and I'm hoping that they won't take too long anymore.

Remember to check out the list of giveaways at the top of this page and link your post-of-new-books in the comment section, so I can check them out, too.

  22. Intense cover. Kinda makes me think of the Strigoi vamps from Vampire Academy, the eyes especially, lol.

    Great haul, Carina :)

  23. I've heard good things about The Immortal Rules and like the sound of a new take on vampires. I was thinking of getting the paperback, but after seeing close up, I want the hardback. My account isn't a big fan of you right now, but don't worry, I am :-)
