This week was actually a massive week for me. Many of the books I've won arrived this week and I bought a couple of books too.
Maria V. Snyder is doing a fantastic thing this year where when you recommend her books to five people and have them email her, she'll send you a FREE copy of one of her books! Yes, you heard right....FREE....SIGNED book. Isn't that fantastic?!?! I'm a HUGE fan of her Poison Study series, and even though I own them all, I had to take advantage of this. I did have to pay $10 for shipping seeing as I live Down Under, but it was more than worth it as far as I'm concerned. Check out her Referral Program for yourself http://www.mariavsnyder.com/contests.php
I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of In The Arms Of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane thanks to Michelle over at http://www.thebookheist.com/ I have actually read this book, thanks to NetGalley, but I loved it, and it's fantastic to have a signed copy. So many thanks to Michelle!
Thanks to the fantastic team over at http://www.bittenbybooks.com/ I was lucky enough to win a goodie pack from Gini Koch, author of the Katherine "Kitty" Kat series, a series about aliens and the adventures of Miss Katherine "Kitty" Kat....something which I haven't read, but is on my never ending to-read series regardless. The awesome swag included a tote bag, pens, a hat, some post cards and magnets and some signed posters from Ms. Koch herself.
I also technically "won" a signed copy of The Chosen by Sheenah Freitas when I bid on an auction she was participating in to help raise funds to help the devastated people of Japan. I got a signed copy of her book, a couple of bookmarks and a notepad. I was proud to be a part of such a good cause. You can check out The Chosen at: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10306049-the-chosen
This week I bought The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter (which I have already read and reviewed, I might add) and Definace by Lilith Saintcrow, a book I am just dying to read. That's everything for me this week. So....what did you get in your mailbox?
