New Distractions #05

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 books I received this week:


For review:
Huge thanks to HarperCollins (via Edelweiss) and Kate Avery Ellison.


I'm really sorry for being so inactive at the moment, but my textbooks are currently trying to murder me. But after June 18th, I'll be as good as new and plan to get much reading and commenting done and really hope that you haven't forgotten me yet. 

Other than that, I'm really happy about these two books. I've been dying to read Defiance and Frost sounds really awesome as well. Have you read any of these two already? Or do you plan to read them?

What new books did you get this week?
