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 The 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...

WHOA, it's been a while since we've done one of these. Oops! And now that I rewatch this I look and sound SO TIRED! After holiday break and all that lounging around, going back for two days apparently wore me out completely! :P

  3. Ooo, yay for Bitterblue! I have that one! It is enormous and shiny and GORGEOUS :D I read and reviewed Defy! Loved that book. I have had Fates for the longest time... I think my review date is coming up on my schedule. Need to get reading! And Secret! Reviewing that one Tuesday! According to my review schedule LOL

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

    1. I couldn't believe how HUGE Bitterblue was! I cannot wait to read it though. Cashore's books are AMAZING! I can't wait to read Secret too though; I love the Elemental series. I really don't care for that cover on Secret though. :(

  4. Hi Angel :)
    Hope you are having an awesome start to 2014! Happy New Year <3

    1. I forgot about 4 things in my vid, so I just threw them into the list anyway! I'm such a nut! Oh well! Hope all is well! :)

  5. Nice haul.

    I spotted She Is Not Invisible in book hauls a couple of weeks ago and I've added it on to my Wish List.

    Enjoy your reads.

    Please feel free to check out my latest haul at

  6. Great assortment of books. I love the Sookie Stackhouse series. I have Bitterblue on my TBR mountain but passed it over yesterday when I was looking for a book to read because of its size. I will get to it someday but will probably have to read the earlier books in the series again before I do. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  7. Ahh, sooo cant wait to read Fates & Enders. Great haul & Happy Reading! :)
