Small book haul, but a really exciting one, this week!
Received in Post:
The Madness by Alison Rattle: I fell in love with The Quietness by Alison Rattle last year, and I’ve been looking forward to more historical fiction from her ever since! I was so excited when this arrived, because it was talked about at the Hot Key Books event I went to in October. I’ve already started it (I couldn’t wait! I abandoned the TBR…. *hangs head*) and I’m seriously enjoying it. Thank you, Hot Key!
The End of the World as we Know it by Iva-Marie Palmer: This was talked about at the Hot Key bloggy event, too! IT sounded really action-packed, but funny too…. A little similar to Vivian Versus The Apocalypse, which revolves around a party before the end of the world. I’m looking forward to starting this. Thanks again, Hot Key Books!
I had to include this, too… for Valentines day, Indigo books (Part of Orion!) sent out Shadow and Bone postcards! Shadow and Bone’s an epic fantasy read, and these postcards were written with a Happy Mal-entine’s message…. you’ll understand it if you’ve read the books! 🙂 Thank you for the postcard, Indigo- I must reread Shadow and Bone, in prep for the trilogy finale- Ruin and Rising, which the cover’s just been revealed for!
So, ta-da! That was the little, but awesome, book haul for the week. Have you read either of the titles, if you’re a blogger? Or are you looking forward to them too?
Also, quick note- there’s going to be a bit of a different blog post up tomorrow, about my blog design. I’d really appreciate feedback on my random ideas, if you have some- make sure to look out for the post tomorrow- thank you! (:
Oh I got one of the Valentines day cards too – came as a total surprise! 🙂 I’m afraid to say I haven’t heard of either of the books, but I do love the cover of The End of the World As We Know It… it reminds me of my copy of The Restaurant At the End of the Universe. 🙂 Anyways, I feel like I haven’t spoken/commented in ages so extra happy reading! 🙂
Ah, I see what you mean! I have different Hitchhiker’s covers, but I have seen a lot of covers similar to TEOTWAWKI’s. (Too long a name xD). Yay for Valentine’s cards! Publishers are lovely people. Thanks Ruby! 🙂
I got The End of the World too! Hopefully we will both enjoy it ❤
Yay! Hopefully, haha 🙂
I requested a copy of The End of the World as We Know It the other day, so I hope I enjoy it. It certainly does seem good! I DNF’d The Quietness so unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be reading The Madness, although I usually really love historical fiction. 😦
Happy reading, Georgia!
Yay! But nooooo! The quietness was really good… I don’t know where you stopped, but I will say the ending is one helluva plot twist… it is worth a read, sorry you didn’t enjoy it!
