  1. Uh, I’m so jealous of your hardcover set of His Dark Materials! I just mentioned the books in my children’s book recommendations, because it’s one of my all time favourite series.

    I also want to read The Murder Complex & Midnight Thief. The Grisha books look lovely together!

  2. R & R was perfect. <3 Still unsure about whether to read His Dark Material...not sure I can handle the ending. Firebug sounds interesting. Looking forward to your review!

  3. Great haul this week! I can't wait to hear what you think of Mortal Gods. I wish I could read all my fall books but I still have a lot of summer to read through first. Though I've had to squeeze Jackaby in. I can't wait any longer. Love the signed Cassie book. Enjoy Carina!

  4. Great haul. I'm a little jealous that you got Mortal Gods. I so want to find out what happens next in that series.

    Books of Love

  5. Look at all those goodies! Wow! Love all the books and treasures you got this week. The cover of Don't You Forget About Me is amazing. I couldn't stop looking at it.

    Your cat looks so cute with the books. Love the expression!

  6. Push, yay, I loved Push! And Paranoia was okay. I can't wait to read Ruin and Rising! I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Carina.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend!

  8. lots of fantastic books as usual Carina!! I really want to read Rush and Push! as well as the first book of The Kiss of Deception since I own it and it's about witches :D I didn't enjoy The Murder Complex all that much but I hope you do! <3
