Weekly Roundup (1) + Book Haul! (vlog)

Yay! New books!! I love this time of week so that I can share my excitement over the most current books and bookie things with you! I am starting this new weekly post, appropriately titled Weekly Roundup. In this vlog I share the latest news on the blog, as well as the books received. So let’s get started, yes?

Hooray for going to awesome author events and finally meeting Tahereh Mafi and Veronica Rossi! That’s right. I went to their Into the Future Book Tour stop in Miami last weekend!! (Thank you to St. Martin’s Griffin, Little Brown Books for Young Readers, Tor Teen, Bloomsbury Children’s Books, Saundra Mitchell and Sarah Nicolas for the items I received this week.) Also a correction: Where I mention the “Changeling” series by Kristin Cashore, I really meant the Graceling series. Oops.

    OMG! You won The Vespertine, The Springsweet, and Temptation of Angels from Saundra’s tour, cool! I followed the tour but didn’t win anything from the blogging authors, but I won Saundra’s grand finale prize 😀
    Awesome vlog! You’re doing great with these 🙂
    Alyssa ❤

    • Congrats, Alyssa!! Saundra is so awesome – and her books are, too! 🙂

      I am excited because I just got a webcam today so I can do more vlogs at a much better quality. Teeheehee… I have a new toy…

  2. I love A Certain Slight of Light, beautiful book!

  3. I loved it. Can’t wait to listen to the audio book. I hope the overall solemn atmosphere of the book is portrayed within the reading… 🙂

  4. Revived looks so good, I can’t wait to read it. I also can’t wait to read Wake I haven’t read anything by her yet but I’d really like to. I read The Fault In Our Stars and i loved it, it was sad though. Also Hush, Hush was really great I love the series so far. I really want to read Switched. I saw the whole trilogy at my used bookstoree but I didn’t even have enough to get one. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. You can check out my IMM on my blog =)

  5. Jenna, you are doing so well on your vlog!! The many books you bought all sound like exciting reads. I like the idea of reviewing the week of books.

  6. SO many good reads this week! Yay for Switched! I loved Hocking’s whole Trylle Trilogy and got all the paperbacks too, I hope you like it too! I’m excited to read Bitterblue too, but I want to re-read the others first, lol! and all of those books are so thick, so I’ll have to rethink it when the time comes!
    Enjoy your new reads this week 🙂

    Here’s mine:

  7. I recently bought Under the Never Sky, Shatter Me, and Switched as well! I need to read them soon, they all look so great! ❤

    Happy reading!
