Purchased:
 Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
GAWD I am so behind, I've only read the first book! *admits to knowing what happens in the last book* But how pretty are these covers! I absolutely LOVE when a series does "classic" covers.


Fear (Gone #5) by Michael Grant
Yes, I know, I've been buying this series entirely out of order. Hey! I was going to buy the third book before this one, but they didn't have it in stock.

Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2) by Laini Taylor 
No, I haven't read this series, but I HAD to get the second book as a Hardcover. Thank you soooo much to Dymocks for ordering this in for me, when I couldn't find this anywhere!



Won:

Thanks to Amanda Sun for this!

Rain (Paper Gods #2) by Amanda Sun
I won this from Amanda's competition, and submitted my bookmarks! YAY! Even though this took TWO MONTHS to get here, it is definitely worth it. P.S. The paper thing at the bottom of the pic is Tomo's fave tea.

  1. Michael Grant's series is one of my favorites! I've read the first four books, I'm hoping to read Fear soon. The Divergent books are so great. I have yet to read Allegiant though! Thanks for sharing; great haul. (:

  2. I love the new Divergent covers too, but I must admit, I prefer the original US covers. I have the first one in that cover, and then the rest in the Aus/UK versions. So bummed! I've only read the first book in the Gone series, but it was really good! Illicited so many emotions omgawwwd! I haven't started the DoSaB series either!!! We should do a readalong :D

  9. I'm in love with those Divergent covers, so I hope you enjoy the rest of the series. I thought Days of Blood and Starlight was awesome, so I hope you enjoy it.

  10. I love those Divergent covers! I have also only read the first book and know what happens in the last book... which puts me off reading them. I didn't go looking for the spoiler, another blogger posted it without warning on a Top Ten Tuesday post. :(
    I hope you enjoy all your books!

    1. That's the same with me. It does put me off reading them, but only in the sense that they can wait until later on to read them. Oh, I hate that! it was all over Facebook when Allegiant came out :( Thanks!

  11. I've only read the first Divergent book too, and I love those covers! Enjoy. My STS.

  12. Those Divergent covers are nice, I hope you enjoy catching up on the rest of the series. And you MUST start the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, it's amazing, and that cover if definitely worth owning in hardback!

  14. I love the classic covers! And yup, love when they do that, even if it means (in my case with The Hunger Games series) you have 2 sets. But it's so hard not to buy them, haha. I haven't even read Divergent yet (though, I do know what happens in the last too. Damn spoilers.)Though, I did seek them out because now it feels like I've read the series without actually reading them...;) Happy reading!

    Here's mine

    1. I can't wait til the classic Four cover comes out in paperback! It's gorgeous. I am exactly the same with the rest of the series. Damn people on Facebook who like to spoil it :( I completely get what you're saying, but in a way, it's easier now to just put them aside because we know what happens in the end. Thanks
