Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Shadow & Bone | Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Motherland by William Nicholson 
Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan
Barely Breathing by Rebecca Donovan
Altered by Jennifer Rush
Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick
Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington 
Girl Defective by Simmone Howell
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

This week was absolutely epic! Walking Disaster is one of my most anticipated 2013 books and I've been desperate to read it ever since I finished Beautiful Disaster last year. I've been meaning to read Reason to Breathe and Barely Breathing as well, since they're both New Adult books that have received glowing reviews :) I'm looking forward to meeting The Darkling again in Siege & Storm, although I've heard he appears less in the book? *sigh* What a pity! I miss him!

A massive thank you to Simon & Schuster, Hachette, Pan Macmillan, Penguin & Harper Collins for the above awesomeness<3
What did you receive in your mailbox? Leave links!



    ESPECIALLY S&S. I see everybody with it -sobs- my Darkling <3


    Also Between the Lives omg wanttttt.

    I've seen quite a few people receive the Breathing series, not sure about it as it's about abuse :/


    Awesome haul seriously! Happy reading Shirley :D

  2. ME WANT Etiquette & Espionage! Have heard great things about it so far? Who's publishing it here? Hachette? If so I'm going to have to beg Theresa! ARGHH!

    I really need to finish Between the Lives soon. So we can all discuss discuss discuss!

    WOOOO! Enjoy Shirls.

  3. DYING to get stuck into S&B/S&S and Altered! Can I steal your copy of E&E……… Nomnomnom.

    All Hail The Mail!

  4. I just recently finished Etiquette & Espionage--I hope you love it as much as I did! Such a fun read!

  6. Eeeeps! I love when I have these weeks, they are just full of awesomeness! I'm so jealous of Altered, Etiquette and Espionage, I loved her other series! I haven't read Beautiful Disaster, though I know loads of people have told me to! Also S&B and S&S have been on my list for ages... The covers and titles are totally different here as well! Lovely haul Shirley!

    Thanks for stopping by! Xxx

  7. Oooooh I saw Etiquette and Espionage in the store and it looks amazing! You got so many great books this week! I'm looking forward to your reviews! Happy reading!

  8. Awesome book haul, Shirley! I have read Drowning Instinct and really enjoyed it - it's a very unusual book, that's for sure! I am very jealous of Altered and Shadow and Bone! They look so good!

    I hope you enjoy every single new book you've received, Shirley. I can't wait to see your reviews for them all. :)


  9. Ooh nice! These are new to me! Only read Gail's book! Hope you enjoy them all!

  10. Lovely haul this week. I love the look of altered. Hope you enjoy your new goodies

  11. Eeeppp!!! Etiquette & Espionage! Sweet haul! :D

    Here's my Showcase Sunday

  12. I've only read Etiquette & Espionage and I wasn't too happy with it, but I really want to read Altered and I simply have to read Shadow and Bone too. Everyone else seems to have read it already. I feel left out. *pouts*
    Fabulous haul, hon. Enjoy them all.

  13. Oh I have Altered and it looks so good. I need to get to it. Enjoy.


  14. AHHHHHH! Walking Disaster *flails around in utter jealousy* I need to get my hands on that book soon! I can't wait to read it and that cover, I just love it so much. So definitely can't wait to see what you think of that one. I loved Drowning Instinct so much, it was such an awesome read. can't wait for your reviews on all of these, Shirley! Epic haul!

  15. Eeeeep Shirley everyone seems to have received copies of Siege & Storm, I'm hoping that my postman will bring my copy soon, I've also heard that The Darkling doesn't make that big of an appearance in it *cries* but I'm just finally glad to be back with him! Also yay for copies of Etiquette and Espionage and Drowning Instinct, they're both books I can't wait to read! Happy reading! :)

  16. I'm a little scared to pick up Walking Disaster. I read and loved Beautiful Disaster but I've heard you like Abby less reading this one. Hmm.. Etiquette and Espionage sounds like wicked fun! Enjoy your reads Shirley. :)

  17. Walking Disaster and Etiquette & Espionage o_O gah you're so lucky! Can't wait to see what u think!

    Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away...

  18. ALTERED!! Mmmhmm, Brodie approves of that deeeelicious cover :D I'm so excited to read it! I won a copy of Etiquette and Espionage, which arrived this week. Marie Lu calls it a "steampunk version of Harry Potter"? OH HELLS YES, I'M IN. Can't wait to see what you think of Between the Lives, looks good!

    AND ENJOY SIEGE AND STORM, SHIRLEY. IT'S SO SO SO SO SO GOOD. Prepare to convert teams :D Actually, screw both the Darkling and Mal, I'm in love with Sturmhond! <3
