Weekly Recap
 
Search Terms
  • chris myers posting - I was on the blog tour for Lennon's Jinx
  • apollyon stacking the shelves - Yes, I got Apollyon in January
  • best book boyfriends 2012 - I do indeed have a post on that
  • falling for her fiance - Yes! I loved this book. Cindi Madsen is a great author!
  • sweet peril by wendy higgins. - I got this last week and can't wait to read it!
  • arc giveaways- I had one a few weeks ago, but none at the moment. Sorry.


I also had a super disturbing search term that I think traumatized me and I was not about to put that up. It was searched for twice actually. There's a difference between funny disturbing, and just really wrong disturbing. 

Well that's all I've got. I hope that all of you had a great week. Link me and I will check out your post!!

  1. Ooo, you reminded me that I still need to read The Immortal Rules! Sounds like the second book is going to be just as good!
    Great stack! Enjoy :)

  2. Ooh, I saw so many people talking about FIRST KISS on twitter, but I didn't know what it was! I have the prequel novella and the whole concept seems really cool, so I need to make an effort and at least read the novella before the book comes out!I'm also very intrigued about Love's Forbidden Flower.

    1. I am looking forward to reading The Eternity Cure!! I just realized that Timespell and Love's Forbidden Flower have the same chick on the cover. At least I think she's the same. Lol!!

  4. "The Trouble With Flirting" sounds really really cute! I love the film version of Mansfield Park. I haven't read it though. I have to admit that I'm not a huge Jane Austin fan, though I love all the movie adaptations. It's weird, but just go with it!

  12. Jenni is right - you're like the giveaway winning queen! Haha. The cover reveal-giveaway queen... you're a queen of a lot!!

    Is it bad that I'm super curious as to what this "disturbing" search term was?

  13. I didn't know The Eternity Cure was on NetGalley until I saw it on everyone's StS post! I'm so excited for that book because I loved the first book. I also like the sound of The Secret Ingredient. I need to check that one out too.
    Great books this week, Amy and congrats on winning all those awesome goodies!

  18. Great bunch of books this week! So many won/gifted and review copies :D

    And BOOOOO to the disturbing search term :( Don't even give it a second thought!

  19. Awww, yeah, The Eternity Cure! I grabbed that one off of NetGalley as well, though I don't know that the odds are all that good that I'll actually get to it. Still! Awesome.

    Oh, AND I just read The Trouble with Flirting, and I wasn't expecting much honestly, but I LOVED it. So. There you go. :)

  20. I got The Secret INgredient too. It sounds like a lot of fun and I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought so. I can't wait to read The Eternity Cure. I am crossing my fingers that I like it better than the first book because I thought the series had enormous potential and I wanted to stick with it. Nice haul!
