Bungles Shelves

This week I was so very good and just got a few free ebooks which were Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers & Reasons to Breath by Rebecca Donovan. Both were free from iBooks :) Happy happy!!

Sally's shelves

What a week I've had!  On Friday I was lucky enough to be able to spend a few hours at the Hay book festival where I saw Malorie Blackman giving a talk on her new book Noble Conflict as well as talking about the Noughts & Crosses series which was one of my faves of last year. Malorie was really entertaining and it was interesting, if not more than a little disturbing to see how her own childhood experiences provided some of the inspiration for the book, particularly Callum's story. So while I was at Hay I bought a copy of Noble Conflict (would have been rude not to) and I also got a copy of The Disappearances by Gemma Malley which is book two of The Killables series.  I loved book one which was a gift from Bungle so I can't wait to start book two! 

I devoured the Covenant series by Jennifer L Armentrout and I wasn't ready to  put Daimon down yet so I managed to grab a couple of e-novellas, namely Daimon and Elixir.  Really looking forward to these two! How pretty are the covers?! I also picked up Obsession which is linked to the Lux series but is told from the viewpoint of one of the Arum.  You can probably tell from the cover that this is more of an adult read.  No complaints from me there!

Ooh! I also got Blurred by Tara Fuller for review which means I'll be spending some one-on-one time with Cash soon. Midnight Reads will be taking part in the blog tour for Blurred.  More on that soon... I also got What Really Happened in Peru,The Bane Chronicles #1 by Cassandra Clare and Sara Rees Brennan. Magnus. Need I say more? 

And finally in keeping with my new regime of reading books within books I have selected a couple mentioned within The Infernal Devices trilogy (insert timeout for a Team Jem moment here).  I got my hands on copies of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte (which I also heard part of as a radio play a while ago - very good!) and not surprisingly A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dicken.  

Just a couple to be getting on with then. I think I've bored you for long enough now though.  So tell us, what have you been buying this week?
