My Book Haul (13)


My Book Haul seems like a good way of giving my books a little special attention, as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.

For Review:

Have seen this one around the blogosphere and, in a moment of weakness, requested a copy from Amazon Vine. Love the idea of seeing the future!

Pivot Point by Kasie West

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. (Goodreads)

Contest Wins:

So excited to find out that I was one of the winners for Allison's swagtastic giveaway over at Alli's World! I'm a sucker for swag, and look at all the awesome loot I received!

Received bookmarks, temporary tattoos, postcards, and stickers. Thanks Allison!


Have seen this book on several blogs, but didn't download it to my nook until Carrie at In The Hammock gave the head's up that it was available for free! 

Double Crossed by Ally Carter

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists. (Goodreads)
