Bookshelf Additions for July

Hi everyone,
This week ended up being a very good week in books for us, which is great because I don't think we're going to be getting any books for a while after this week.

Anywho, here's our haul--
I bought Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay, Ten by Gretchen McNeil, Something Strange & Deadly by Susan Dennard and Defiance by C.J. Redwine from price for all four books (including shipping) was about $23 and I thought that was a pretty good deal.

Leslie received Hooked by Liz Fichera from Harlequin Teen Panel and I am part of the blog tour for Shadows by Paula Weston so I got a copy for review.

Back in May I won a copy of Monument 14 and its sequel Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne and a Fierce Reads bag on Twitter but there was a glitch and I didn't get my prize. So, to make up for it the lovely folks at Macmillan also sent me a copy of Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo and a book I've never heard of but sounds really good, Sekret by Lindsay Smith (which doesn't come out 'til April 2014).

I also got three unsolicited review books: Blood Warrior by Lindsey Piper, Hearts Unbound by Sara Luck and How to Entice an Enchantress by Karen Hawkins.

And I got approved for Turn and Burn by Lorelei James and Until Fountain Bridge by Samantha Young on Netgalley--it was so awesome because I requested both books on Thursday morning and I was approved that same day! That never happened to me before so YAY for great timing.

I already finished reading Until Fountain Bridge (my review will be up this coming week), which is a novella and I'm currently devouring Turn and Burn because I have been dying to read this book (I'm a huge fan of Lorelei James' Blacktop Cowboys series).

Did you guys get anything good? Leave me a link to your book haul post so I can go take a gander your pretties.

Happy reading,


  1. I literally JUST finished Defiance - I loved it so much! Definitely my type of book ;) And all the Fierce Reads swag - I am so jealous! I love the tote bag :D

    Have a great weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

  2. Lovely haul of books. I see a lot of stuff in there that I want to read. Thank your for visiting me earlier at my new blogs home. Defiance, ah I still need to read that.


  3. Awesome haul :) I can't wait to start Monument 14 and I can't an eARC of Shadows last week. Hope we enjoy both books!

    Thanks for stopping by My Haul!


  4. Thanks for stopping by my STS! Ten was good, if a little corny in parts. I loved Something Strange and Deadly, can't wait for the sequel. Happy reading!

  5. I've been meaning to read Juliet Immortal for so long. I've heard some good things about it. I've been hearing a lot of good things about the Monument 14 series and Grisha trilogy as well. Good haul :D

  6. Grats on your wins! Macmillan is so nice to resend you the books + a gift. :D
    That is definitely a good deal, especially since Ten and Defiance is so good!
    Enjoy all your books! (:

  7. Hi Michelle! Goodness, that's a lot of books! Are you and Leslie even planning to sleep at all?

    You are so lucky to be able to participate in blog tour with famous authors and get awesome freebies. In the city where I live, that's next to a miracle.

    Netgalley is really awesome. But I have to work harder to get approve for titles under famous publishing houses.

    I hope that you have a good time reading them , Michelle!
