I guess you could say this is my Christmas present from my parents :)


Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
ARC of Black City by Elizabeth Richards
Lux buttons
Daemon Invasion bookmark and other swag
Bookmark of Release by M.R. Merrick

Received for Books That Spark: YA & MG 2013

ARC of Catherine by April Lindner

ARC of Roses in Ecuador by Heather Huffman
Hera, Queen of Gods by T.D. Thomas
ARC of Nobody But Us (from Edelweiss)

So that's it for this week! I'm so so happy about finally getting print copies of Obsidian and Onyx, especially since Opal is going to arrive in just a few days. Also, aren't the Lux buttons gorgeous? And the Release bookmark is so pretty too! I honestly can't wait to read any of these books, they all sound amazing. Looks like I've got a lot of reading to do over the next week, since I haven't managed to read all the books I got last week either!


  1. I've been dying to read Black City! And I'm reading Obsidian at the moment, and am really liking it so far. Congrats on your win, and I hope you love the books! :)

  2. I purchased Black City last night!

    My STS for the week!

  3. I still have to read Black City! The cover looks so awesome, but I've heard some not so good things about it. Hopefully, we'll like it! :D
    Thanks for stopping by My STS!

  4. Love the Lux series! That's definitely worth the $ to have a hardcopy. Have you read Opal yet? I still need to.

    1. Yup, got the ebook when it came out! It's amazing, definitely the best in the series so far. I can't wait for my print copy to get here!

  5. So jealous of your Lux series book swag! I just finished Opal last night and it was GREAT. Though now I'm dying for books 4 & 5 (Which will be dual POV--Katy and Daemon--squee!!!!)

    I read Jane by April Lindner and really enjoyed it, but I'm familiar with Jane Eyre and not familiar with Wuthering Heights. I'll have to squeeze a classic onto my TBR list so I can check out Lindner's latest!
