  1. Awesome haul. So many great titles. I'm envious of your copy of No Where But Here.

    Happy Reading!

  2. Oh wow. So many pretty books waiting to be explored! I also bought a copy of The Girl At Midnight. I hope that you enjoy all of your new additions. Have a great weekend! My haul!

  3. Ooh Crimson Bound! I read the arc and it was fantastic! Love seeing it in hardcover! Might have to get it myself at some point. ^^

    Happy Reading!

  4. It's great when you have an all round productive week! I'm looking for a quieter week to catch up on my blogging which had to take a bit of a back seat this week but the reading was good and buying was restrained! You certainly won't be bored with that book haul! Hope you enjoy them!

  5. WHOA! Edelweiss loves you! LOL! I have such terrible luck with them. But not on Netgalley where some of the same publishers are. Whatever! I am dying to get back to my books I bought anyway! But I see tons of reads I cannot wait to read later this year! However will you decide what to read first?! Happy Reading!!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. Awesome books! I am dying to read Ember in the Ashes. I love the new paperback cover for Moon and More. I also can't wait to read Rook and Magnoia. Enjoy your books!

  8. Fun picture. I enjoyed Everything that makes you and hope that you do too

  9. Ember in the Ashes was a great book. The cover looks very pretty, as do the rest of your books. Enjoy your new books.

  10. I am totally jelly you got the new Becca Fitzpatrick book!!!!! Dying to read that one! The Girl At Midnight looks great too! Happy reading :)

  11. I HAVE READ MOST OF THESE! I loved Rook, Ember, The Darkest Minds, Across the Universe, Legend, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I thought Crimson Bound and Magonia were okay though. I have Legacy of Kings, Dangerous Lies, and those Harper downloads! Dangerous place, Edelweiss ;)

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have a lovely weekend, Michelle.

  13. Some beauties there! Good luck Super Reader! Thanks for topping by.

  14. Oh, what a great stack of books. I have a bad case of book envy! I wish I had more time to read. lol

  16. Oh yea Rise came out :D I love the paper god series by Amanda Sun. So many good books, have you started on any of them yet?

    1. I haven't read any of them yet, but I'm definitely adding Magonia to next week's tbr. I'm waiting for The Heir on Tuesday. I need to read fast to fit all these in!

  17. Dude. I cannot. Those EW books, they are just calling my name. They WANT me to read them. They say "Shannon reaaaddd usssss" (They hiss like snakes, I don't know why.) And I say "Tell your publishers to approve meeeee". That's where we stand ;)

    Also you physical book haul! You seriously singlehandedly keep publishers in business, I am convinced! Rook! I love Rook! And The Girl at Midnight, I just bought that for my giveaway winner, but I want it for me, too! And I NEED A Game of Love and Death. NEEEED. I almost bought Saint Anything, but I knew I was just buying it because I was excited to see it in a store, so I stopped myself hahha. I hope you enjoy all of these!! Have a wonderful week :)

  19. Great haul. I love all the covers. I hope you enjoy your reads and have a great week.
