It’s that time again! Welcome to Beg, Borrow, and Steal, my take on the In My Mailbox meme started by Kristi at The Story Siren.
Quite a few of the books I ordered this month have arrived, so there’s quite a pile stacked here next to my desk. I bought double of one book specifically so I could share the wealth (hint hint!). Let’s take a peek:
Books I found at ridiculously good prices and absolutely had to have.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Found for a really good price, and I totally love the eerie pictures!
Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
The Demon’s Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan
Yeah, I needed to complete the series.
Wildefire by Karsten Knight
My order for this arrived early and I was SOOOO glad. Loving it so far.
Have been wanting this book since I first heard of it.
Five Skies by Ron Carlson
It was on sale and I hope I can get Ron to sign it if I go back to visit him in office hours. =)
The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones
Picked up from the library.
Wingshooters by Nina Revoyr
By the grace of my thesis professor, a literary novel made it into my hands!
It’s an amazing read so far.
Free downloads or eGalleys received for review.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Release Date: September 20, 2011
Red Smoke Rising by Rick Anthony
Release Date: March 15, 2011
That’s it for this week. Next week is going to be really exciting because one of my best friends is an absolute real-life superhero and she got me book things from San Diego Comic Con. So excited to see what she brought back!
