Thanks mom! 

What did you get?


  1. Omg that book has a long title! Seriously, apart from City of Fallen Angels, all those books have seriously creepy covers. Even Coraline! Love it!

  2. Awesome books! I hadn't seen that cover of Coraline but WOAH. Just WOAH, in a cool way. The Girl Who Circumvented Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making looks really cute, and I love the cover of The Horns of Ruin, though I haven't heard much about it. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, and happy reading! :)

    Also, 200 Pound Beauty = <33. I agree, very cute.

  3. Those all look great. The Girl Who Circumvented Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making looks really fun. Happy reading! :)

  4. I would even add the cover of City of Fallen Angels, Bookworm :) Just means one thing - they are going to be wonderful reads.

  5. I need to buy The Girl Who.., too. I was sent an ARC and I started it (it's really good!) but the print on the ARC is so tiny I was getting headaches! :D Love the cover of Horns of Ruin! Enjoy all of these!

  6. Coraline is great! It's very creepy. I need to read The Girl Who Circumnavigated as well. Enjoy your new books!

  7. Woot! I had a Neil Gaiman title this week, too! The Mortal Instruments series is a fave here, and I SO want "The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland"! Great mailbox; enjoy your reading week!

  8. Giada- Wow, these are the kind of stories I'd love to read! They don't get mentioned much on the blogs I follow. But they seem like high adventure and fairy tales like I used to love when I was in school. I've heard of the first one and Coraline, but not the rest. I can't wait for your reviews so I can see which ones I want!!

    Thanks for coming over. I'm so glad to meet a new blogger with different books. I'm hoping to stick Divergent in this week among my review books but it's long! Still, how can everyone be wrong???


  9. Ooh, I haven't heard of a few of these. The Stuff of Legend and The Horns of Ruin have GREAT covers, I'm going to have to look into them.
    And LOVE that cover for Coraline. Creep-y!

  10. Looks like you got some fun books to read! Happy reading. :)

  11. I only know of CoFA though I still haven't read it yet. Anyhow, hope you have fun reading your books!

  12. Wow - some inknown books to me there and I immediately want to know more about them! :-)

  13. Lots of fun books, many of which I've never heard of. Happy reading!

  14. I really love the cover of "or else my lady keeps the key" :D it reminds me of some old pictures I saw...
    I find the cover of "the stuff of legend" creepier than the coraline's one..can't tell you why actually...

    let'me know how "the girl who.." is! it sounds interesting...

    enjoy your books!
