After all the dilemma surrounding The Story Siren and all my favourite blogs moving on to different book haul memes, I have decided to stop taking part in In My Mailbox and from now on I will be participating in Showcase Sunday instead, which is hosted by the lovely Vicky over at Books, Biscuits and Tea! I haven't done a post like this in AGES so I'm super excited to be taking part in SS for the first time today <3
The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M Valente: Wow, what a mouthful! I'm not sure what I think of this book at the moment, I'm having difficulty 'getting' in to it and it certainly isn't your typical fairytale. It's cute and whimsical but also a little confusing. Hopefully the rest of the book will go better for me. I'll try to review it soon and don't forget to look out for the blog tour which will be stopping by on the 16th! Thank you to Corsair for the review copy :)
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: Ok... this book is back in it's envelope and tucked away in a cupboard. I surprised myself when I accepted this book for review. I don't usually like horror particularly but I wanted to expand my reading tastes. I flicked through it as soon as it came through the letterbox and I was FREAKED OUT by those photos, they're also so creepy and urrghhhhhh, I have the chills just thinking about it. I will only be reading this book in broad daylight. Thanks to Quirk Books for the review copy.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith: I have wanted this book so badly ever since I first heard about it so I am SO glad that I finally have the chance to read it :D The title is a bit of a mouthful but it's such an original, prettiful name for a book... I have a feeling I'm going to adore this book <3 Thanks to Jana at The Book Goddess for swapping books with me and giving me the chance to read it!
Marshmallow Skye by Cathy Cassidy: I think this is the longest time I've waited to get my hands on a CC book! It's super cute and adorably sweet and I loved it <3 I've already finished it so look out for my review! Thanks to Beth at Page-Turner for swapping with me, I hope you enjoy your copy of Choker x
Divergent by Veronica Roth: *Hangs head in shame* Please don't shout abuse at me because I haven't actually read this book yet, lol :P You're probably shaking your head in disgust that I haven't read this and I'm pretty disgusted at myself too. I must admit, I wasn't even aware of Divergent before I started blogging *hits self* but I've read the first few chapters and it's AMAZING already so I can't wait to properly read it all! Thanks to Sally at Always Lost in Stories!
A Million Suns by Beth Revis: I won this in a giveaway and it sounds so thrilling and exciting! I only just found out that it's the second book in the series. I haven't read the first book yet, have any of you read both books? Do you think I could read this one and understand what it's talking about without reading the first in the series? Thank you to Samantha at A Dream of Books and Penguin!
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa: I've read such glowing reviews of this on some of my favourite blogs so I have very high expectations and I hope I'll be able to enjoy it as much as all my blogging friends did :) The cover is a little creepy to be honest and I'm sort of past the 'vampire phase' but everyone seems to love it so I'm really hoping it doesn't follow the whole Twilight path... Thanks to Jess at Jess Hearts Books for having the giveaway!
So what do you think of my books? Have you read any of them and what did you think (no spoilers please)? Remember to leave your book haul links so I can drool over your prettiful books hehe >.<
