Book Haul #26

Haven't done one in ages, but I've been busy with school and I'm basically blogging once a week and barely manage to visit all of your blogs. I'd rather visit yours and comment than blog every day though :) So you guys know the deal, if you've read any of these, let me know what you thought. I'm so everexcited about these pretties. Also, I hope you leave your links so I can visit you back which I'll be sure to do throughout the next week if not this weekend.

Physcal books


Never Fade (The Darkest Minds #2) by Alexandra Bracken

E-books


Addicted for Now (Addicted #2) by Krista and Becca Ritchie (e-arc)
Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins
Wild Child (The Wild Ones #1.5) by M. Leighton (already read and loved loved loved)

Since Jasprit [The Reader's Den] read Easy and will be reading The Edge of Never, it's only fair I give a try to one of her favorite series which last book Fractured she reviewed on her blog this week. You know me, I'm impatient so I got both of the first book and the sequel as well. 



Massive thanks to Krista and Becca for the e-arc of Addicted for Now! Will be starting it tonight :)

Also, I went to see Thor 2 yesterday with my friend and we both loved it! It was such a great sequel to the first movie which was so-so for me at times, but I loved every bit of the second one. It was filled with great humour, action and the graphics were pretty awesome. Marvel sure knows how to do its job and I can't wait for Captain America's and X-Men's new movies. Have you guys already seen Thor 2? What did you think? If not, are you going to watch it?


What did you get this week? Leave your links below and I'll check out your goodies :)

In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by The Mod Podge Bookshelf and Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

  2. THOR THOR THOR! What the heck am I supposed to do -- Ender's Game and Thor came out and I HAVE TO SEE BOTH NOW! *hyperventilates* I think I'm having movie withdrawals or something. It's been so long since I stepped into a theater. I'm so glad the Thor sequel was awesome. I actually loved the first one. I saw it twice in theaters. And the X-Men trailer already has me giddy :D Also, I hope you're enjoying Addicted for Now ;)

  5. Thor 2 comes out here next weekend and I'm so excited! I can't wait to watch it. My movie buddy is actually going to be away but I don't care, I'll go watch it by myself if I have to.
    I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Sarah Fine's books and Stir Me Up.
    Enjoy your lovelies! :)

  7. So want to read Ruby Red, hope you like it.
    Haven't seen Thor yet, the first movie kinda put me off.

  8. The Darkest Minds is amazing. Seriously, I'm obsessed with that series. And I really liked Sanctum as well. : )

    I haven't seen Thor (the first, let alone the sequel) but BF and I plan to do a movie marathon soon. We named our Bulldog Thor so it's only right that we see the movies! : )

    Great haul, thanks for visiting my StS!

  14. Some really great books this week! Really want to read Ruby Read and The Darkest Minds books! Enjoy all your reads.

    I saw Thor 2 a few days ago and I really enjoyed it as well. I have to admit, I LOVE LOKI - he is just kind of brilliant and his comedic timing is excellent. Thought it was a really great sequel, and I am also so excited for Captain America 2 and Xmen Days of Future Past - I absolutely loved Xmen First Class!

    My STS.

  16. Darkest Minds and Never Fade! I was going to purchase those 2 this week as well but decided I should wait. I haven't even seen Thor 1 yet but glad to see people are enjoying it.

  17. I haven't read any of these, but The Darkest Minds and The Burning Sky are both pretty high in my TBR pile. I'm so glad you enjoyed Thor 2. I'm definitely planning on seeing it. I'm super excited for the next Captain America and X-Men films, too. Great haul and happy reading!

  18. I've heard so many good things about Ruby Red but I also heard that it also has a rather disappointing series ender. Hopefully, I'll be able to read it soon. Almost everyone loved the first Thor movie but I also thought it was so-so too. I'm glad you like this one better though.

    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

  19. Ah, Siiri! It's hard when your life is so busy to read, post and comment. Thank you for every one of yours!

    I hope you enjoy Sanctum. I really enjoyed it! I might hold off on Fractured for a bit.

    I haven't watched many movies lately (hello, always reading!) But I did just watch World War Z and loved it! I haven't seen the 1st Thor but I do love superhero movies. I'll have to download the first one and watch it. Glad to hear you loved number 2! :)

  20. I'm so jealous, it seems like everyone has seen Thor 2 but me ;) I enjoyed The Darkest Minds, so I need to pick up her new book. Happy reading!

  22. Girl I totally know how you feel. My midterms are coming and I have no idea where my head is. Unfortunately my blogging is suffering cause of that. I cannot wait for the break. But you've got some amazing books too. I need to read The Darkest Minds like now but that will hardly happen. Also yeah Jasprit's reviews for that series made me get myself copies. Which are now waiting on my Kindle. Gah I'll have to make a schedule or something. Great post Siiri :)

  23. Unfortunately, I haven't read any of the titles so I can't tell you anything about them, however they have awesome covers, the physical copies. I'll have to check them out :)

  25. You loved Wild Child!?!! That makes e soooo happy, Siiri! I really want to read Stir Me Up, and can't wait to see what you think.

    Enjoy your books, sweetie!

  26. I have heard great things about Bracken's books, despite not having read a single one, but I hope you enjoy them both. Also yay for getting Sarah Fine's books, they weren't typically something that I would normally read, but definitely stood out as favourites of this year. I will keep an eye out for your updates. Also I'm going to watch Thor 2 with my sister and friend tomorrow. Me and my friend and huge Marvel fans, so we're hoping this film lives up to our expectations. We can compare notes tomorrow! Happy reading hun! :)

  27. YAY SANCTUM AND FRACTURED!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so so so so so so so excited you're reading those, I can't wait to see what you think! I absolutely loved The Burning Sky as well, and of course the entire Ruby Red trilogy. So good:) I'm jealous you've already seen Thor, I can't wait to go and drool over Chris Hemsworth! It comes out this week here, so I'll be there ready for the hotness on Friday:)

  28. I'm really excited for Thor 2 I loved the first one. Sanctum sounds really good I've been hearing a lot of great things about the author. Great haul! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, I've been seeing The Darkest Mind and Never Fade a lot in everyone's STS this week. I know it's describes as part hunger games and that alone makes me very interesting in giving it a shot. I'll wait to see what you think of it. Great haul!

  30. I've been bitten by the YA bug recently and I must say, I didn't realize how much I missed it. I just finished Stir Me Up last night and it was a really good one. Hope you like it too. I am so intrigued by the Addicted series but I just can't fit in it. Enjoy your books!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay! Sanctum and Fractured were great reads for me. I really hope you enjoy them. I also really liked The Burning Sky. I can't wait to see what you think of that one! I haven't done a book haul post in god knows how many weeks (possibly months!), but I do love seeing other peoples. :)

  32. I'm trying to find someone to go with me to see Thor:( My stupid boyfriend doesn't like fantasy.:(((

    You have some great books there, honey. I hope you'll like them all.

  33. The Burning Sky! Time for some fangirling! -fangirls- I hope you'll love that one as much as I do!
    I still have to read The Darkest Minds and Never Fade. I've heard great things about them both.
    Enjoy all your lovely books & thanks for stopping by my STS last week! (:
