Thank you so so much to publisher Spencer Hill Press. You just made my life.


  1. I'm almost done reading pushing the limits and I love it! I though grave mercy was ok and I got a want so wicked to! :)

  2. Yay for Deity & Cursed--I got those too. And I love BDB. LOVED Pushing the Limits. And I've heard Grave Mercy is great. I hope you enjoy them all.

  3. WOW. *Everyone has awesome hauls!*

    Okay, I haven't read the Covenant series or any other book by JLA yet *hides in a corner* But so many people have been going gaga over it, so I guess I'll start with Obsidian?

    Spencer Hill Press is really a sweetheart for sending you so many goodies! Have fun reading!

    Here's my haul, happy Sunday ;)

    1. OMG Sel! You have to read ALL books by JLA! She's my all-time favourite author and all her books are just awesome! Yeah, I suggest you start with Obsidian. Then go with the Covenant series!

      And thanks! Happy Sunday to you too! :)

  4. Awesome, so many good books and swag. I loved Grave mercy, it was really good. Enjoy all your loot!

  5. Wow what an awesome haul!! You got so many so many fantastic things! I hope you enjoy them all, I loved ReVamped myself! New follower! :)

    Carly :)

    1. Thank you for following, Carly! Yeah, ReVamped was a very enjoyable read! :)

  6. Wow that was an awesome haul!

    I've been thinking about the covenant series actually, I'm trying to decide whether to get it or not.

    The Jennifer L. Armentrout swag sounds freaking awesome! I just received her Obsidian book and have already pre-ordered Onyx, I'm looking at her other books too!

    My SS

    1. Oh you REALLY should start the Covenant series! The first book isn't THAT amazing, but 2nd book (Pure) and 3rd (Deity) is just WHOA. Probably my 2nd favourite series of all time, behind Obsidian of course :)

  7. Slated, Grave Mercy (what a shame you didn't like it!), For darkness shows the stars, Cursed and all the swag. Great haul! :D


  8. Woah! What a great haul this week! I didn't enjoy Grave Mercy either, so I was surprised about the huge hype it received. Nevertheless, I am excited to see what you think of Pushing the Limits and For Darkness Shows the Stars. Happy Reading! :D

    Ivy Book Bindings

    1. Pushing the Limits was amazing I thought! I didn't really enjoy For Darkness Shows the Stars though :(

      Yeah, I didn't get the hype for Grave Mercy either!

  9. I'm so sad you didn't enjoy Grave mercy, I still need to read it. I thought it sounded really good!

    Letterbox Love!

    1. Yeah, it did sounded really good and I thought I was going to enjoy it but I didn't :(

  10. Umm, this is probably one of the most epic hauls ever! Soo many amazing books I wanna read!
    Happy reading!:))
