Surprises all around this week!
Thank you Allen & Unwin Australia for sending me these review copies!

 Cooper Bartholomew is Dead by Rebecca James (Final Print Copy)
Loving the final cover! Look out for my review of Cooper B on the 24th! Also, follow this link to see behind the scenes of Rebecca James writing Cooper B.

Clariel (The Old Kingdom #4) by Garth Nix
Hello gorgeous :D I can't wait to read this series, I've only heard good things about it! Plus, this copy of massive! Hmmm, going to invest in a smaller copy when it comes on shelves to match the rest of the series.

Pandora Jones: Deception (Pandora Jones #2) by Barry Jonsberg
Eeep, so excited about this one. I absolutely loved the first book, Pandora Jones: Admission, and I've been told how good this sequel is.

Sacrifice (Elementals #5) by Brigid Kemmerer
OMG THIS BOOK!! I've already finished it (I know, I'm addicted to this series), and let me tell you now, I blubbered like a baby. It was such a good ending, and there might be another novella coming..... Yes, I stalked Brigid until she told me, or didn't really tell me... 

YA Book Exchange

Thanks to trader, Elodie!
Wondrous Strange trilogy by Leslie Livingston + swag
Ohhh hello lovelies! I've read this series and I knew I had to have it when I saw it was up for trade. Plus, how awesome are the Jane Austen themed postcards?

From the always amazing, Kelly at DivaBooknerd
Kelly, you sly woman! This is my all time favourite classic (other than Alice in Wonderland) and she surprised me with this gorgeous cloth hard copy!!! I think I nearly cried when I got it in the mail from her. 


  1. Oh you got fabulous books this week! I have Sacrifice to read but I don't want Elementals to finish! And how lovely of Kelly to send you The Secret Garden :)

    1. Definitely did! Although, Clariel is massive compared to the others, I have the biggest urge to cut it down it's not funny. It's not just length wise that's massive, it's width as well so it sticks out so much :/ I KNOW!! I'm so upset now that it's finished, but I'm excited to see what Brigid has in store next, and for the novella that she will be working on later later. She is amazing isn't she!

  2. I can't wait to see what you think of Cooper Bartholomew. That one KILLED me, because, like just a few chapters in it really started to suck knowing Cooper would die. I mean, he's a NICE person. Really freakishly nice. *sigh* Kelly is obviously awesome, right?!
    I haven't read anything by Garth Nix yet...I'm thinking I should...
    My Stacking the Shelves!

    1. I loved Cooper B! Oh, I know right, he was such a nice guy, and he did the right thing, then it's like BAM... dead. I'm glad that we got to see his POV in the story though, so it's not too bad, except the fact that he dies,so yeah LOL. Very awesome, she already knows this but I had to point it out for everyone :P
      It's ok, I haven't either, so I'm really anxious to start :D

  3. Awww that is so sweet of Kelly to send you that book! I used YA Exchange the other day, not many Aussie traders but at least there are some :) I love that cover for Clariel, it is freaking beautiful! Have a lovely week Gina. My STS will be posted soon :)

    1. YES! I can't believe she did it :D Yeah, there isn't many, but the few that are there are really nice, plus there are quite a few international traders. It is gorgeous isn't it! Definitely had to get the new covers seeing as how gorgeous they are :D Enjoy your week too! I'll be looking out for your STS

  4. Trading books is such a great idea! The second Pandora Jones book looks amazing, and I can't wait to see what happens after the cliffhanger in the first book. That edition of The Secret Garden is beautiful too - hope you enjoy all your books Gina :)

    Eugenia @ Genie In A Book

    1. It is, it's such a great site, and the traders are all really nice and helpful. The joy of working with other booklovers!
      I've heard it is amazing from A&U (haha not just because they're publishing it, but because it is). I hope it's easy to remember what actually happened in the previous book, I'm trying to remember the details. It is beautiful! I can't stop looking at it, it's so bright and ahhh! Thank you :)
