Hey guys! Wow, its been a long time since I last posted on a regular basis! I just recently got back from vacation, and things were a little bit hectic, so I wasn't able to properly start blogging yet. But anyway, thanks so much for those who stopped by during the last two months inspite of my sporadic posting. And a special shout out to Patricia from Book Exhibitionism, for this post of awesome! She's totally awesome, and you should check her blog out! (She's currently on a hiatus, but I believe she's returning this July, and when she does, watch out! She's coming back with her snarky Patricia-ness full blast! :D)

But anyway, I still got some reviews saved, so hopefully, I'll be able to post stuff regularly soon. 

So anyway, a bookworm like me take a 2 month long vacation and not buy any books? Yeah right! In fact, I found the best little bookstore- Basement Books! They sell remainder books, so they were all pretty cheap! But I'll show those books next week. For now, I got two month's worth of books to show off! :D 

Okay, so first (or was it second?) week of vacation. I won the most awesome prize pack from Hachette Australia! 

I know, right? I was one happy camper as I opened the box! And because the books have such pretty covers, here they are:

In my opinion, the Australian covers are way better than the US ones, but that's just me. :) 

I'm pretty excited to read Heaven, because it has the best summary. And A Witch in Winter looks pretty cool too! Skins though... I didn't even know it was included in the box, and the cover is mildly creepy. :/

Now this one I really wanna read! I had actually read the first two books about two years ago, so now I want to read the whole series once again using my shiny new copies! :D

So... that's all I got for now. Check back next week, to see the large haul I got from Basement Books!

    But.. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAWW! I love you! :D

    And awesome haul! I plan to read Embrace, too! (Btw, I have no real internet right now (my neighbour is here, too, so if I start typing furiously she'll become suspicious..) but I'm so glad you're back and I'll start stalking you as soon as I'm back :'D)
