  4. Nice books this week Carina... your Insurgent copy, the green one with the tree, is that a hardback? I really want that copy in the large paperback so it matches my original Divergent.

    1. Thank you :D It is the hardback, yes. I really want the International Paperback, though :) But, well, can't find it anywhere online :\

    2. I know it. it's so annoting isn't it?! Maybe the one I want will be out in a couple of months :-(

      Have you seen this copy of Finnikin?

    3. It really is :( Unfair, too. Because I'm guessing it's in stores in the US somewhere. Hoping it will show up soon; but sort of doubting it :p
      Ohh! No, I have not seen that one :D I have the hardcover, and now the paperback. But that one is even better :D Thank you. <3

    4. Psst, the Finnikin of the Rock paperback you sent me to is the same one I have bought :) it is the same cover; because the ISBN is the same :p

  5. I forgot to say, I know you enjoy fantasy, have you read the Obernewtyn Chronicles? Amazing books!!! :-)

    1. Oh, no, haven't read those books :D Will have to check them out ;) thank you :)

  6. Great haul Carina! I love how you buy all the different editions of a book. ;) The cover of Shine is so pretty. I wasn't sure about it first because of the yellow, but it looks so much better in real life. Hope you enjoy reading any of these you haven't read yet! :)

    1. Hih, yeah, I love buying so many different copies (A) My mother would not agree, though.. She wishes I would stop buying books. Probably shouldn't tell her about all the same copies :D lol :) I agree about the cover of Shine. It really is pretty :)

  7. Fantastic haul, Carina! You received so many amazing books this week! Slated! Bitterblue! Sweet Evil! Until I Die! And it's amazing that you buy different editions of some books - if I were an author, I know I'd love you! xD

    Happy reading, and happy belated birthday! I hope you had amazing day on your birthday! :)

    Here is my haul this week. :)

  8. I've been hearing such great things about Struck! I need to get it. You got lots of great books this week. I hope you love them all.

  9. Do you think there's going to be another book after Bitterblue? :D

    Anyway, here's my IMM:

  10. Oh my goodness, so many books!

    Enjoy all your reads!

  11. Girl, you're definitely in the running to become an honorary member of The Book Hoarders Movement! Lol. I'm glad I'm not the only nutty who buys multiple copies of books! <3

  12. Awesome IMM! I'm dying to get my hands on Until I Die. :)

  13. Okay so I can't find a copy of Insurgent anywhere near me and you have two... so how's that fair? *evil eyes* lol. Just kidding. I'm really dying of jealousy here! ^_^

    Beautiful haul! Happy reading.
