This Week’s New Books

If you’re wondering why I’m not having an IMM – read this post.

There are so many new “Look at my new books!” memes that I’m having troubles choosing. I know a few of the hosts personally and I don’t feel like picking teams on this one. So, I introduce my own conglomeration of all the memes out there! If you’re hosting a similar meme or if one of your friends hosts one, let me know and I’ll add their graphic (:

I had an amazing week! It was my 18th birthday this week, and I celebrated with a nice BBQ. I got quite some bookish gifts, but most of them in the form of book gift cards. I will be able to buy a LOT of books! Still, a few of my family members and friends ventured to give me a book I don’t own yet, and succeeded very well!

Click on the covers or links to go to the book’s Goodreads page.

For review:

Requested this one from Netgalley (thanks Amulet!). It looks pretty interesting, kind of a young-adult mystery about a group of people bullying bullies. Or something like that. I’m looking forward to read it!


I got these pretty flowers from my boyfriend. Never thought I would be flower kind of girl, but I thought it was so sweet!

Couldn’t find this one on Goodreads since it’s a Dutch book (with an English title). It has all these pictures of weird places, hotels, items… It’s a really cool book (:

From another friend I got this awesome “hang your book somewhere” thing! The bottom is a little flat metal bar that makes sure your book doesn’t get damaged. A thank you to my mom for posing with it!

Books! Insurgent is actually a late-late Valentine’s Day gift. I have been waiting for this book to come out for SO LONG. As you can see, I already started it. Dreamcatcher is a great addition to my Stephen King collection. And I finally got a copy of A Game of Thrones! And man, that book is scary. It’s huge!

And I got some awesome non-bookish stuff too. I got lactose-free chocolate (yay!) and some Lush bathstuffs. If you’ve never heard of Lush, check out their website. All of their products have not been tested on animals, are vegetarian, and smell amazing. I wish it was my birthday more often!

So what do you have in your mailbox, on your shelf or to showcase? Leave a comment with your link so I can visit you back!
