 What books have you added to your shelves this week? If you are also participating in this meme, please leave me the link to your blog post in the comments so that I can come and drool over all your goodies!

 If anyone has read any of these books, I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Holy smolie! That's a LOT of awesomeness! So, so many books that are really amazing like the Madman's Daughter for instance. Hope you enjoy them as well!

    1. Thanks, Shelley! That's one that I was really pining for! Can't wait to read it!!

  2. I really need to read Insurgent, I loved Divergent and I still haven't gotten to it yet although I just might wait until closer to October to read it before the last book comes out. Great haul, enjoy!

    Kristin @ Young Adult Book Haven

    1. You and me both, Kristin! I loved Divergent and really want to see what happens next!!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. You got a really nice bunch of books. Lots of them are on my wishlist and some are on my TBR mountain. I'll be eager to hear what you think about Nauti Siren. Leigh's books are sometimes embarrassing to read. I would expect that to be multiplied when hearing the book. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    1. I've haven't yet read anything by Leigh, and I don't normally read the contemporary romance genre, so this one will be a bit of an experiment for me! I have listened to some audiobooks that have literally made me blush. I don't know how those narrators do it!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Wow, you won some great looking books and got some great discount books too! I loved The Madman's Daughter, and I'm excited to start shortly Strands of Bronze and Gold. Enjoy your great haul!

    1. Yay, another one who enjoyed The Madman's Daughter! Hope you enjoy Strands of Bronze and Gold!

  5. WOW, congrats on those nine books that you won! You will LOVE Insurgent. And I got The Obsidian Mirror... last week? The week before? Who knows! Enjoy your lovelies! :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. Thanks, Alyssa! Can't wait to read Insurgent!!

  6. I loved Strands of Bronze and Gold, wonderful haul Darlene and have a great week! The Sunday Post

    1. Thanks, Kimba! I'm looking forward to reading it!

  7. Wow! I see like seven books that I'd love to have too. Fab luck you had this past week. Happy Reading!
