Bookshelf Additions for July

Hello bookish friends,
This is a week for Kindle additions instead of the physical bookshelf.

I only got one physical book this week, The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. I pre-ordered it months ago because I fell in love with its ridiculously pretty cover.

And then the awesome e-books--

I had these on my wish list and they were only $2.99 (or less) on Kindle so I couldn't resist.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
[[I got the Kindle book/Audible audio combo for Second Chance Summer because I really like the whispersync feature on my Kindle--buying both cost less than 10 bucks! Yay!]]
Pivot Point by Kasie West
The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger

Bloggers are always raving about the Night Creatures series by Australian author Marianne De Pierres (for a long time these books were only available in Australia) so I was very happy to find that ALL three books in the series are free on Kindle. If you haven't downloaded the series yet, they're still free--go here.
Burn Bright by Marianne De Pierres
Angel Arias by Marianne De Pierres
Shine Light by Marianne De Pierres

I got approved to download two books for review.
This is W.A.R. by Lisa & Laura Roecker (via Edelweiss)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (via Netgalley)

All in all a pretty good week in books, I think. What about you guys? Got anything good? Leave me a link to your post so I can go admire your pretties.



  1. I've heard lots of praise for Coldest Girl in Coldtown, hope you enjoy your books!

    My book post is here: The Book Bundle

  2. I need to check out the Night Creatures series.I have heard wonderful things about them. Enjoy. my sts

  3. Aww, looks like I missed the free ebooks. No matter, I think I want to pick those up on paperback anyway...eye candy for the bookshelf.

  4. Hey there, Leslie and Michelle. Your book hauls are looking lovely though I haven't heard about any of them, to be honest. But the Night Creatures Series has great cover which immediately made me check Amazon but sadly, I missed it. *sighs*

    I was very glad that you stopped by my blog letting me know that you are also Pinoy. It's gave me a good feeling knowing about it. :D

  5. I wasn't a huge fan of This Is W.A.R., but I really hope you like it! It has potential :D And Keeper of the Lost Cities is a great Middle Grade read! Pivot Point is a really good one as well. I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  6. That is a pretty cover for The Distance Between Us. I might have to add that to my already crazy long TBR list(s). Looks like you got some great books this week. Sadly I missed the Amazon sale for the Night Creatures series but hope you enjoy it! Have a great week!

  7. I was lucky enough to get an autographed ARC of The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and to meet Holly at ALA. I can't wait to read that one. Come and see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. I had huge weeks. Happy reading!

  8. Awesome haul! I can't wait to read The Distance Between Us. The cover IS beautiful. I LOVED Pivot Point and can't wait to start Second Chance Summer. I hope you enjoy all of your books!!

    You have so many pretties! The Distance Between Us IS ridiculously pretty! And I STILL haven't read Piviot Point. It's got such a pretty cover I'd rather it in paperback than kindle format...just so I can stroke it. Thats not weird....right??

  20. Woah, I wish I had The Coldest Girl in Coldtown!!! I've been craving it for like one and a half years! I've also hurd a lot about the Burn Bright books, but they're not free from my location :( Besides, those covers are so awesome that I'd like to have the print version. Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  21. Love how you preordered The Distance Between Us based on the cover-I think it's just lovely and I can't wait to read it myself!
