Weekly Book Wrap-Up #40

Saturday, January 21, 2017

In my weekly book wrap-up, I share with you the new books that have arrived at my place. No matter if I won a giveaway or got approved for a reviewer´s copy or just bought a new one. And I will tell you a bit about the how and why I added them to my shelves and why I wanted them in the first place.

And of course, I link up this meme again with the two other suspects that are hosting each of them *smile.

So Tynga´s Reviews and Bought, Borrowed & Bagged are still on board here at Gone With The Books.

Stacking The Shelves #40 is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews. A meme that is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #24 in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.

I got a lot of new books this past week. Some of my pre-orders were delivered way earlier than expected which made me actually dance across the house. Some I just bought because the price was soooo seductive and thanks to the forum Lesejury the giveaway Dirty that I had won back in December was finally in the mail. I discovered a sort of antique book store online and couldn´t resist trying and bought some books for a very low price I wanted since ages. So a lot of books I expected to arrive next week came this week and my TBR grew quite a lot …

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.

    1. I became a fan of her when I saw the Divergent movies and now I am hooked... Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Ok, I'm definitely picking up Carve the Mark. I've seen it all over the blogs this week. Immortal beloved looks good too and it has a beautiful cover. Enjoy your reading!

    1. Hi Laura, thanks for stopping by. Yes, it seems as if everyone wants to read Carve The Mark *smile*

  4. Lots of new books is always great! The only one I've heard of her is Carve the Mark. I read it early and while I did enjoy it, I definitely saw the problematic issues that make the book controversial. I will be looking out for the sequel though. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have an awesome weekend, Vi. :)

    Check out my STS post!

    1. That sounds very intriguing. Books with problematic issues that become controversial are always good. Thanks for stopping by.
