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...

From the Library...
As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott (Speak/Penguin)

What did you get for your libby this week?


  1. Carnival of Souls was amazing! I am very curious about As I Wake. I hope you enjoy all your books this week!

    Our StS for the week =)

    1. Good to know! I haven't really read any reviews on it yet. I don't want them to jade me I think. We'll see. My favorite Marr book is Ink Exchange, so I like them dark I guess. I'm curious about As I Wake too! I can't wait to see what Rachel has to say!

  2. What a great win! I'm really wanting to read Carnival of Souls. As I Wake looks interesting. Kinda loving the cover! I hope you enjoy all that you got this week. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

    Regine's Book sounds like a book that is like to have the opportunity to read and I hope that it gets a Kindle release in the UK.
