I have a massive haul this week! Probably because of my addiction to taking things out of the library and also because I ordered and received lots of books! 

Library Haul: 

 Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson- I read the first book at the start of the year and can’t wait to read the rest! I also really love the cover.
Crossed by Ally Carter- I haven’t finished Matched yet but I’m hoping that now I’ve got this one I’ll end up reading it. 
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway- I know a lot of people have read and enjoyed this book so I decided to pick it up myself. I’ve only read a small part of it but it’s really good!
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer- Evolution comes out in the UK soon and, even though I’ve already read The Unbecoming, I’d like to read it again.
Saving June by Hannah Harrington- I’ve been hearing a lot about this book lately and have decided to try it out for myself. It does look great!
Review Haul:
Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black- I hadn’t heard of this book until I got it this week and I actually kissed the cover when I pulled it out of the envelope. It’s so pretty! Thank you Scholastic!
Tempest by Julie Cross- I received this to review from Macmillan and started it straight away. I really enjoyed it and my review will be posted on Tuesday!
I also received Smuggler’s Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen which I didn’t photograph but absolutely loved!
Amazon Haul:
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan- I’m always looking for a good contemporary so I decided to order this book! It’s the only one that has been delivered yet but I can’t wait to start it!
What books did you receive this week? Leave your link!

    Great haul! I love that cover on the Dance of Shadows book! I really need to get Crossed now that it’s in Pb to match the 1st one I have in Pb on my shelves! 🙂 BTW, the vlog is SO NOT SCARY! It is a bit techie as far as using iMovie, or Movie Maker goes, then finalizing it, uploading it to Youtube and embedding it to your blog…BUT taping it you get over pretty quickly I found! I have to be honest that we can’t do them in front of ANYBODY! LOL! But, that’s our only limitation! 🙂 Our audience is an empty room! We’re talking to ourselves on the computer screen recording! 🙂 Just like talking into a mirror! Just try it once! PLUS, with a UK accent NOTHING CAN GO WRONG! Thanks for stopping by Lucy!

    I loved Saving June! It’s an amazing contemporary. I’m not a huge fan of the Matched series, but I definitely liked Crossed better than Matched. Hope you enjoy it! I can’t wait to read the Mara Dyer series, I’ve heard so much about it.

    Dance of Shadows is brilliant and I’ve just been talking to you on Twitter about Tempest – glad you liked it! 🙂

    I’ve read Saving June, Audrey Wait and Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares – all favourites of mine and couldn’t recommend them enough.
    I’ve just finished Reached by Ally Condie actually and although I really disliked Matched and only marginally liked Crossed, Reached was actually so so good. I hope you enjoy it. If you don’t like Matched, just keep carrying on, the books get better! 🙂

I want to read Crossed, I got it out of the library but didn’t end up reading it, want to finish the trilogy even though I didn’t enjoy Matched much. I also really want to read Tempest, its a book I’ve been meaning to buy for awhile but haven’t yet gotten around to…:( But its my birthday in three weeks so maybe one of my friends will buy it for me 😀 Enjoy your new books, Lucy! 😀 xxx

    I didn’t really enjoy The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but the sequel is SO worth reading. I have to read Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, especially with all the good things I’ve heard about it.
