Welcome to my new Wednesday post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Now: What She Left ~ T.R Richmond.
I’ve only just opened this, so nothing to report yet but looking forward to it.
Then: Rebel Belle ~ Rachel Hawkins
I really enjoyed this quick, quirky read. My review will be up next week.
Maybe Heir of Fire or Hold me Closer. Or Blood Red, Snow White. Ahh so many!
New on the Wishlist
I’m still working my way through Mead’s Vampire Academy series, but when I saw this on the excellent Obsessive Bookseller’s blog I had to add it to my wishlist.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
New on the Shelf

Purchased: So my book-buying ban took a hit last week when I randomly found a The Works shop on my travels. They had some books for £1 and also a 3 for £5 offer. It was rude not to, right!?
Here’s my haul:
Netgalley: I didn’t request any advanced copies this week (pat on the back)!
Borrowed: I didn’t borrow any books this week either.
I’m Waiting on…

Miss Mayhem (Rebel Belle #2) ~ Rachel Hawkins
I’m really waiting on this one after just finishing the first book. It was a blast!
Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and best friend Bee has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can return her focus to the important things in life: school, canoodling with David, her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie, and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.
Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or connect her to David for life. Expected publication: April 7th 2015
So, that’s my week in books, now how about yours?
