Books Won
A couple of months back, I won Book-lover Carol's giveaway and prize finally came this week. I was expecting seven books and some swag but what arrived were ten books and swag--the extra books were just WOW! Check it out:
Fallen by Lauren Kate (ARC)
The Exile of Gigi Lane by Adrienne Maria Vrettos
The Secret Life of Prince Charming by Deb Caletti
Numbers by Rachel Ward (ARC)
White Cat by Holly Black (ARC)
North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley (ARC)
The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (ARC)
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (ARC)
Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin (ARC)

The first four books in purple I passed on to Leslie (she's been dying to read Fallen). Two of the surprise books were Nightshade and Linger (I really need to get and read Shiver). With all the buzz about these two books, I can't wait to dive into them. As for Low Red Moon, I've never heard of it but it sounds interesting. Thanks again Carol!

Books Bought
The rest of my Barnes and Noble order finally came in this week too:
I'll Be Slaying You by Cynthia Eden
Ghost Huntress: The Awakening by Marley Gibson
Ghost Huntress: The Guidance by Marley Gibson
What the Duke Desires by Jenna Petersen

"It's Monday! What are you reading?" is hosted by the awesome Sheila of Book Journey. It is a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week. Click on the image above to join in on the fun this week!

See my review of Desire Me here. I meant to wait until later to read The Unclaimed Duchess because it doesn't come out until Auguust but I couldn't wait--TUD is the 1st e-book I've ever read in it's entirety! My review of PMT coming soon and I am still working on on Marked but I'll finish later tonight. I had a great romance reading week :)

This week Michelle is reading

I'm really excited to read these two review books from Hachette--they both sound really good! They both come out this coming Tuesday so look for them. There's a giveaway here on the blog for DD going on now. Thursday is the start of BaL's blog tours so there will be a giveaway for that book here then so don't forget to come back and enter! :)

Next week Michelle plans to read
tfrenchI was lucky enough to get an early finished copy of Faithful Place by Tana French (out 7/13) from the publisher. I heard Rob Ryan and Cassie Maddox (I think they should get back together as partners if anything) don't make an appearance in this book, but I'm excited to read this book anyway--I'm a huge Tana French fan.
Hopefully, I can read a couple of books my summer reading goal list (see sidebar) as well.
