I have quite a big haul this week and am really pleased with everything I received. 
Library Haul:

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher- This was one of the books in the Sick-lit Daily Mail article and, having been featured defending the books in the Daily Mail, I thought I had better read it.
Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl- The Beautiful Creatures movie comes out next week and having read the first book, I’m really looking forward to reading the second.
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel- I’m sure Emma read and reviewed this on her blog and so on seeing it at my library, I decided to try it for myself. I don’t read many vampire novels so I’m looking forward to reading this one.
To-Review Haul:

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan- I was so pleased when I saw that this was one of the books I could request to review. After reading The Fault in Our Stars back in December, I’ve wanted to read another John Green book and this one is co-written by David Levithan which is also a bonus.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer- I’ve wanted to read this book for so long and I’m finally going to be able to! I love the cover so much and it is a very welcome addition to my bookshelf.

Witchstruck by Victoria Lamb- I won this book in a competition run by Girls Heart Books and am really looking forward to starting it. Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres and this is written in the Tudor era which is also my favourite period. I am spoiled!
Book Swag: 

Signed Breathe Postcards- I was super pleased when Sarah Crossan asked if any UK bloggers wanted these signed postcards and jumped at the chance. They’re so pretty and were sent all of the way from the USA. Thank you, Sarah!
Geek Girl Badges- If you’re a regular in the blogosphere then I’m sure you will have heard about Geek Girl by Holly Smale by now. I won a competition and received loads of these badges. I wrote about my badges in this post. Thank you, HarperCollins!
What did you receive this week? Be sure to link back to your own posts and follow and I’ll return the favour.

    Yay for swag!!! I have only read two books out of your haul and right now I’m reading umm.. Cinder and I’m not really into it. I heard that it gets better, it’s just so sci-fi at the beginning. I’ve read every book out of The Caster Chronicles series and Beautiful Darkness was my least favorite. I hope you like it though, because the third and the last book are worth it to suffer through BD:) Happy reading, Lucy!!

    I just wanted to say that I really love your blog. Your a great writer and your posts are always intresting. I’d love to get to the point where I have heaps of blogging friends and followers and get sent books from publishers. I love your new header and I think Queen of Contempary is a great name. I really want to read Geek Girl and I love the badges. I just bought Beautiful Creatures the other day. Happy Blogging 😀

    Cinder is one of my favourite books so I really hope you enjoy it!
    Will Grayson wasn’t my favourite John Green book, but the end is so great. I preferred John Green’s Will Grayson to David Levithan’s.
    And Thirteen Reasons Why, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. It’s incredibly daunting and I really didn’t like the girl which didn’t help. I hope you enjoy your books!

    I love the header, so pretty. Emma did a great job 🙂

    I just love the covers of the Beautiful Creatures series – plain but breathtaking all at once!
    And Cinder! Even though I have a hardcover copy of Cinder, I want to buy the paperback one too!
    Nice pretty Breathe postcards! 😀
    Thanks for stopping by my STS Lucy! (:

    Awesome haul! I have Cinder but I still haven’t gotten around to it, I have been meaning to though! I think Thirteen Reasons Why sounds interesting but I don’t like reading books which deals with such heavy subject matters :/ Enjoy all your new books! xxx
