THE BORROWED AND THE SWAG

Top to Bottom, left to Right:
The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate

Deadtown by Nancy Holzner - borrowed from ninefly
The Dark Divine Swag (bookmark + sticker) - thanks ninefly!
A Wish After Midnight Swag (5 bookplates!) - thanks Zetta!


Okay, so how much do I love the swag? I already read and loved and reviewed the Dark Divine, and while I may not have my own copy of TDD (which will be rectified soonnnnnn, very soon) but I haz bookmark and sticker to comfort me while I wait for paperback!! (trying to ease up on the hardcovers, for I am brooooke) Which is all mine mine mineeeeeeee, mwuahaha. And the AWAM bookplates!! *HUGS THEM* I was wondering if anyone'd be interested in winning the AWAM swag in a giveaway. I have four left over that I can totally give away, but one is for myself. 8D And, also, I might as well mentioned that I gobbled up and finished Freak Show already and OMG MY SAPPY SAPPY HEART, HOW FABULOUS IS THIS NOVEL?! I HAVE NO WORDS. REVIEW IS COMING, I SOLEMNLY SWEAR. (I'm so behind on reviews. It's disgusting)

What a great bunch of books! I love your enthusiasm. I am deliberately not checking out the books by West or Kushner at Amazon. I haven't read them but I am trying not to start any new series or add anything to my TBR stack. I hope you enjoy your new books. Happy reading!
