New Distractions #04

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.

Most recent reviews:
Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer 
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams
Fated by Alyson Noel

The books I received:

For review:
Thanks to Harlequin Teen (via NetGalley) and Shana Norris.

There was no New Distractions post last week, so this is two weeks of books. I really couldn't stop myself from requesting these awesome Harlequin Teen titles and I can't wait to delve into them. I'm also quite excited for The Boyfriend Thief which has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while, so I made a little happy-dance when Shana Norris contacted me with her review request.

Other than that, I currently don't have too much time to read. In June I'll have three criminal law exams, so I'm spending a lot of time with my textbooks and I can't wait for that to be over. I'm still going to try to post consistently during the next few weeks, but I'm sorry if I can't comment on other blogs as much as I want to during that time. Looking forward to June 18th, which will be the day of my last exam! 

Nonetheless, please leave links to your book haul posts down below and let me know how you're doing at the moment! What are you reading? What are you dying to read?

Happy Sunday!
