A Feast for a Bookworm: Week #18 & #19 in 2013Saturday, May 11, 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. :)
I skipped posting new books last week, so this will be a BIG list:
The Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin (Historical Romance)
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo (Historical Fantasy)
Dragon's Child (King Arthur #1) by M. K. Hume (Historical Fantasy/Arthurian Mythology)

Dancing With the Devil (Nikki & Michael #1) by Keri Arthur (Paranormal Romance / Vampires)
Big thanks to Harlequin Historical, William Morrow, Atria Books, Del Rey & Dell.
Old Mars (Science Fiction Anthology)
Fool's War by Sarah Zettel (Science Fiction)
Once We Were (The Hybrid Chronicles #2) by Kat Zhang (YA Dystopia)

Altered Souls (The Witch Avenue #2) by Karice Bolton (Paranormal/Witches)
Released Souls (The Witch Avenue #3) by Karice Bolton (Paranormal/Witches)
Twisted Perfection (Perfection #1) by Abbi Glines (New Adult Contemporary Romance)
Big thanks to Strange Chemistry, Karice Bolton for The Witch Avenue and me (for purchasing Twisted Perfection :o) ).
It may seem a little bit bigger but it IS a two week worth of books. *innocent look* OK OK I confess. This is a disaster. And I just started cleaning up my review pile. *sigh*
This time NetGalley is innocent. I only got The Sword Dancer, Fool's War & Playing Tyler from their website. The blame is 100% on Edelweiss - they approved most of my request and some were more than two months old! I would be angry at them if I was not excepted over so many great books I now have to read. :D
I also signed up for Karice Bolton's The Witch Avenue blog tour. I expected to get only Lonely Souls (book #1), but Karice gifted to me all three ebooks so now I have a lot of witchy goodness to read. :)
And last, I bought myself a little treat for relaxing on my vacation in Budapest - Twisted Perfection. I read it and although I loved Abbi Glines' dramatic romance as always, it's getting too similar to erotica for my taste. Full review will be posted soon.
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. ;)
