A Feast for a Bookworm: Week #17 in 2013Saturday, April 27, 2013
A Feast for a Bookworm is weekly post on Bookworm Dreams blog highlighting new books that I either purchased, borrowed, received for review or on a giveaway.
What is the difference between this post and In My Mailbox hosted by The Story Siren or Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews? None, whatsoever. But I thought that my post deserved some original title. And this is what my husband and me came up with. :)
So new books on the menu for me are:
A Thousand Perfect Things by Kay Kenyon (Fantasy)
Children of Fire by Drew Karpyshyn (Fantasy)
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover (New Adult Contemporary Romance)
Quite Contrary by Richard Roberts (Fantasy)
Big thanks to Premier Digital Publishing, Del Rey, Atria Books and Curiosity Quills Press.
My self-proclaimed NetGalley and Edelweiss ban is working people! I know it sounds funny considering I've got 4 new books but it's better than 15-20 (and believe me I used to request/download that much weekly).
Quite Contrary is my first review copy I requested directly from publisher. Funny story related to that book. I recently read and loved Nefertiti's Heart, so I looked for Curiosity Quills Press on NetGalley and requested this book (dark retelling of Red Riding Hood). But when they approved my request I saw that there is no 'Send to Kindle' option and that book is expiring/being archived tomorrow. Since I love fairy tale retellings and I really wanted to read Quite Contrary I sent them review request and they accepted, so now I have Kindle-friendly ebook. Yay! Special thanks to Giselle from Xpresso Reads, because her post about requesting ARCs gave me courage and also showed me how to write the email/request.
What do you think I should read first? Did you already read something from this pile? What did you get this week?
Feel free to leave links to your lists of new books in comments. ;)
