Our Week in Books...

This is our week in books at Libby Blog. This feature is not our own original idea and is inspired by so many others that are out there (esp. IMM by Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Review) with the goal of sharing our new books and getting to know one another a bit better in the book blogging world. If you have a similar post for the week, please share it in the comments so we can comment back...

Have a great week in books and let us know what you got for your libby this week!


  1. Aww Brave was such a good movie. You got some great books! I need to finish the Maze Runner series!

    Clean Teen Fiction's STS

  2. Oh my.... What a haul....Looks like you had an amazing week.


  3. So many great books!! :) The Immortal Rules and Hex Hall were AMAZING books, too! I hope you enjoy all your books!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  4. Wow - what a haul. From your list, I've only read the Mortal Instruments series, which I loved. Hope you enjoy them too, as well as your other books.

  5. OMG what a haul and so many fantabulous books! Love the Cassandra Clare books (both series are great!) and the House of Night series is also pretty good (although some of their teen speak annoyed the crap outta me - but the storyline is great!) Enjoy the books you got this week :) Happy reading!

    This week's haul!

    1. I completely agree on the teen speak of House of Night and haven't been to thrilled with how the series has gone. I still wanted to finish out my series on my shelves and read them too though. I love the plot idea with Nyx and tattoos, etc.

  6. wow what a haul! I just got City of Bones, and I have the last next to last one. Have't read them yet though.

    Happy Reading!

    My STS

  7. OMG! I don't even know what to comment on bc there's so much epicness in here!! I really want to read Beauty Queens and If I stay/Where She Went!! Awesomesauce haul!!

    Xpresso Reads

    1. I know, right!! AND this next week will be epic too! It has literally taken 33 years though to convince my family and friends that I really only want cash or B&N gift cards for books for gifts! Just this last year they've started listening! I think it's the blog that's finally made them understand. You'd think becoming an English Teacher and then a Library Media Center Director for a school district would have been a bigger hint! LOL!

  8. *falls over* That is a truly epic book haul! Happy (late?) birthday! It looks like you're going to be a very busy reader. :-)

    1. I've already read about half of them, but yes I will be busy reading! :) Which is just how I like it!

    2. I'm with you on that one! I finished 2 yesterday and immediately picked up another. :-)

  9. Wow, you got some great books. Immortal rules was really good. Happy Reading.

  10. Oooo amazing book haul! Belated happy birthday! Immortal Rules was soooo good. Loved it! Brave was such a cute movie. Thank you for dropping by :P

  18. I just bought City of Glass and I can't wait to read it! I just got a copy of Hex Hall off of Amazon because I have the second book. I also enjoyed If I Stay but I'm a little nervous to read the second book because of the synopsis. The Immortal Rules was really good I enjoyed it! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! Here's my IMM =)
