New Bookshelf Additions

Hello bookish friends,
It's StS/Sunday Post** time! But first the links of what we posted this week:

Thursday: Review: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Wednesday: Book I Covet: Starbreak by Phoebe North
Tuesday: Books That Make You Cry

There wasn't a lot of posts because I was busy studying for my oral exams all week--this exam determines whether I'll graduate grad school or not. I had my exam on Friday and I passed! Woo-hoo!! I'm going to be graduating in December with my Master in Library and Information Science.

Okay, now for the books...

We are most excited for the physical books that came this week:
Cress by Marissa Meyer (for review)
<<Leslie freaked out when she got Cress in the mail. She LOVES the Lunar Chronicles series.>>
Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier (bought)
Harlequin Red Hot Reads tote (not pictured) + Cosmo magazines (won)

Here are the e-books I got:
One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy (bought)
Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy (bought)
<<I had a hankering for more awesome NA and this series by Monica Murphy got great reviews on Goodreads so I had to check it out. Plus, book 3 is coming out soon.>>

Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen (e-ARC)
<<This one has mixed reviews and some of my trusted bloggers didn't like it but I'm curious, especially because I kept seeing it in the social medias this week.>>
Barefoot by the Sea by Roxanne St. Claire (e-ARC)
Friends Without Benefits by Penny Reid (free on Kindle)
<<The reviews of this one were mostly positive and it was free so I couldn't resist downloading it.>>

What new books did you guys get? We wanna see! Leave your STS/Sunday Post link so we can come gush over them.

Happy reading,
Michelle (& Leslie)

    I'm right there with Leslie on the Cress excitement!! I did a happy dance when it showed up in my mailbox!

    You got lots of kissy books! :D Enjoy!

  16. Wohoo for Cress! I haven't read Scarlet yet although I've been meaning to. Yay for Monica Murphy's books. I really liked reading those.
    Also, I've heard mixed things about Breaking Nova too, so I'm not too sure whether I want to read it or not.
    Lovely books! Hope you guys enjoy them all! :)

  17. Cress! So jealous! Hope you enjoy it! Ooh, Friends without Benefit is free on kindle? Might need to pick that up! Great haul, happy readings.Thanks for sharing & stopping by Bookmunchies!

  18. Cress! I would be excited too. I love this series. Enjoy your week.

  19. Good luck on you're oral exam! I'm sure you'll rock it.

    Ohhh Cress! Lucky!

    Now I have to go see what you thought of Dash and Lily.

  20. I hope you enjoy One Week Girlfriend! I usually dislike the New Adult contemporary romance novels that I read, but I enjoyed that one. And OMG Emerald Green! Must have! I need to get my copy. I've (we've) been waiting so long!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fantastic week!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  22. Whew! A lot of these books are really new to me except for Emerald Green and Cress. The latter reminds me yet again that I need to buy Cinder and Scarlet on the succeeding days in order to prepare myself for Cress. You are always so lucky for receiving most wanted physical ARCs.

    Have fun reading your beauties, Michelle!

  23. Congratulations on your exams! I have mine in the spring, so I totally understand how big a deal that is (though I wish I had chosen Library Science - I'm in History)!

    Great Haul, enjoy!! The Monica Murphy books look fun :)

  24. Ah! I would have loved to get one of those amazing gold packaged on my doorstep! I can't wait till Cress comes out. I hope you both enjoy your new reads!

  25. Ooo, Cress? I've yet to read the Lunar Chronicles series. :3

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Sunday Post! :)
