This is an e-book haul where I share books I bought, got from the library, were gifted to me or received for review and any other book related goodies I get in the mail.

This haul is mainly dedicated to e-books only because that’s what I read! But who knows, maybe someday I’ll get a printed book! ;).

It’s just an opportunity to share what books I got throughout the week. The covers are linked to Goodreads.

Hello and welcome after two weeks of disappearing from the blog!
Sorry, everyone, I was just ill and not feeling good and with all the fasting (we’re in Ramadan), the time passes differently for some reason :).

Anyways, the next e-books you’ll see I had to get either because of the author (The Secret Circle), because I had the first in the series (Masque of the Red Death, Shatter Me) or because I just loved the cover and the synopsis (About A Girl < this is an Adult book if I’m not mistaken).

E-books I got:

1255060312695491110643512521671135023501572590715820137135992917933615About A GirlUnravelMe4av2blue

Free from Amazon Kindle:

So that’s it for this week.

I’ll try and finish my goal for this month (I’ll try!), meanwhile, happy reading everyone :D.

Hello everyone!

 

Sorry for not writing a book haul this past week, I was sick, but that didn’t stop me from getting these new e-books.

This e-book haul is worth two weeks, so don’t judge me by the amount of e-books I got!

First, let me show you the e-books and then I’ll let you know why I got each book (or series) :):

E-books I got:

1234567891011121314151617181920AGameOfThronesbookaclashofkings7013345a-feast-for-crows-by-george-r-r-martinA-dance-with-Dragons-de-Georges-R.R-Martinisbn9781444778519-detail-detailthe-programcovertherealmofpossibility11870085

Second, here’s why I got each of the above:

1- Dexter series: I’m planning to watch the TV show and I tend to read the books before I do so. Besides, they’re about killers and serial killers and death, how can I not want to read it?

2- The Morganville Vampires series: I’m almost out of vampire books, almost, and Goodreads have been recommending this series to me for ages, plus it had good ratings. Besides, aren’t those covers gorgeous?! *_*

3- A Song of Ice and Fire series: yes, yes I know! I’m the last to know about these books! I used to love The Tudors, and the TV show (A Game of Thrones) based on these books sounds somewhat familiar, so I decided to get the books first. I’m really looking forward to these :D.

3- Angelfall: Okay. I hate Angel related books thanks to my really bad experience with the Fallen series, but I read nothing but good reviews on this one and the blurb sounds really nice. So I’ll give this one a shot.

4- The Program: No need to explain! I love dystopian, apocalyptic, sci-fi books, and this one sounds amazing.

5- Jasper Dent #2: Game: I got I Hunt Killers last year when it came out, and I’m really excited about this one. I really need to get started with this series.

6- The Realm of Possibility: I came across this one on Google while researching “The Claddagh” ring (I became obsessed with it since Angel gave it to buffy :’) ). The blurb however is very unique and intriguing.

7- The Fault in Our Stars: Do I really have to justify my choice? I can’t wait to start this one!

 

That’s it for this week. Phew!

 

See you the next week! Have a wonderful weekend :).

 Title: The Sound.

 Author: Sarah Alderson: website, blog, Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads.

 Series: /.

 Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK.

 Expected publication date: August 1st, 2013.

 Pre-order the e-book/book/audiobook from: Amazon, B&N, The Book Depository or Kobo.

When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston's elite, she's hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.

What she doesn't count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets; falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy; and falling out with a dangerous serial killer...

From: Goodreads.

I love the cover!
So simple and so beautiful :).

 

I’ve heard so many good things about this book from those who got to review it before it comes out, I wanted to request it from NetGalley but I know better than to do that, I have enough books to read I don’t need more :$.

The story sounds great too.

 

Can’t wait to read it!
