  1. Geek Girl is fantastic and I really want to get my hands on Nantucket Blue! Enjoy :)

    1. Netgalley has it! :) Try there! :)
      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. WOW. Some great stuff you got this week!
    And Casual Vacancy for 99? THAT'S SO CHEAP FOR A HARDCOVER!!!
    Enjoy reading :)

    1. I know right! That was probably my best catch of the month! :)

  3. Wow! Those are a lot of books. I didn't like "City of Bones" very much, but I hope you do. Also, Hunger Games series is awesome, one of my favourites, but I'm not a fan of audiobooks. And... I also have "Casual Vacancy", but a Romanian Paperback edition, and I got mine for around... 13$. It was on sale, as it normally costs 20$. So, yeah, you were very lucky.

    Thanks for dropping by.

    1. OMG I LOVE City of Bones!! I read them about two years ago, and I bought a hardcover version for the Cassie Clare signing I'm going to, because my paperback is falling apart.

      And I also read The Hunger Games a couple of years ago, I just want to try to listen to them, to hear a different perspective.
      And yes, Casual Vacancy was a total steal! :)

  4. Wow! So many awesome books!! thats awesome! Happy Reading!
    P.S. Thanks for stoppin by my blog!
