Week in Review: The Feed Your Nook Edition!

Week in Review

The Feed Your Nook Edition!

This week, I made my nook VERY happy.  It got almost all the love!

 Did you enjoy Splash into Summer?  I know I did!  I still have one giveaway to come (and some of the giveaways are still going on through the end of the month.  Check them out!), and possibly a review of H2O, but other than that, we're done!  As much as I adore everything under the scene...it's good to go back to what *I* want to read again!

*SKYLARK by Megan Spooner
*THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin {Re-read! It's time to evolve!}
*SIRENZ: BACK IN FASHION by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman

Um...because I obviously can't stick to one book this week.  SKYLARK is expiring, SIRENZ is a tour read, and MARA DYER...well, I have a sequel I'm coveting! LOL.  I've started all three...and finished none...

[link to my GoodReads account so you can see my blurb feed as I read]

*PUSHING THE LIMITS by Katie McGarry {Spotlighting soon, and there will be a GIVEAWAY!}

{What happens when you start four different books in one week?  You finish one of them...}

*FATHOMLESS by Jackson Pearce {Splashy One to Watch}
*WAKING STORMS by Sarah Porter

*Guest Post and Giveaway with TANGLED TIDES Author Karen Amanda Hooper
*{Blog Tour Guest Post} The Writing Process for Kate Hinderer's EMERALD ISLE
*Waiting on Wednesday: PROPHECY by Ellen Oh
*The reality of e-books
*Terry Goodkind's latest novel is exclusively in e-book format!


 Physical Arcs / Finished Copies

{Thank you to HarlequinTeen for the lovely finished copy!  Check back soon to win a copy of your own!  The word of mouth on this has been incredible, and while I'm not huge on contemporary, especially when the covers are fluffier like this one, this was an issues book, and I love issues.  The story was gripping, the characters compelling.  I put down everything to read this when it arrived!}


{The fourth and final novella leading up to THRONE OF GLASS, which releases in August.  I can finally share my review with you soon!}

*THE SHADOW CATS by Rae Carson
{I loved THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS--which is on sale for $2.99 in e-book format.  Buy it!--and am looking forward to its sequel, so it's nice to have a novella to tide me over!}

*THE FIRST CONFESSOR: The Legend of Magda Searus by Terry Goodkind
{I'm sad that this won't be out in hardcover, since it won't match all of my other books, but it's interesting to see a bestselling author refuse his publisher's advance and self-publish instead, especially when a lot of his market has yet to dive into e-reading.  It will be interesting to see what happens!}

 E-books for Review:

*STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff
{Out Sept. 18, 2012}
{Thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Dunne Books for the special access!  I've been drooling all over this novel.  It's Asian-flavored and sounds AMAZING.  With all the buzz on this one, I actually thought it was a teen book, but it's not; it's adult fantasy...and that's totally okay with me!  I keep trying to work other books back into my life, lol.}

{Thanks to Netgalley and Month9Books! This is an anthology packed with amazing authors and full of one of my favorite things, retellings!  And Mother Goose Rhymes?  What a novel concept!  I believe some of the proceeds for this release are going to charity}

{Out Oct. 23, 2012}
{Thanks to Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster!  Ever since finishing THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER, I've been dying to know what happens next!  I was actually on Hodkin's site sniffing around on Friday, then saw the book up for review within minutes when checking Edelweiss, so I knew it was meant to me!  I just started re-reading THE UNBECOMING... yesterday so that I'll be ready to read this!}

 FREE e-books:

{This was the Free Fridays title on my nook.  I actually have a review copy of both this and the second book.  I was going to read it when life got crazy, and then it's been mermaid time.  So I'll read it soon!}

*THE LIGHT KEEPERS by Mande Matthews
{I heard about Mande Matthews' book BONDED this week and saw a free prequel up, so I downloaded the prequel and a free sample of BONDED to see if I like it first!}

*THE PRINCE with free sample of THE MALICE OF FORTUNE by Niccolo Machiavelli; Foreword by Michael Ennis
{Random House is giving away a special edition of THE PRINCE for a limited time with a foreword by Michael Ennis, author of the upcoming novel THE MALICE OF FORTUNE, which is a DA VINCI CODE-inspired novel weaving together with THE PRINCE.}

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Very nice Bonnie. Bows head in shame. I still have to read the first Mara Dyer book. I like some of your books. Some of them I've never heard of. Nice haul.


  2. Nice collection. I loved Pushing the Limits and The Assassin and the Empire. Stormdancer sounds amazing too. I'll be eager to hear what you think of it. My new book posts are at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    BTW: I'm a new follower.

  3. Great set! Evolution of Mara Dyer was on Edeweiss?!! I really want to read Stormdancer too.
