I've been very lucky girl two past months. I've won some giveaways, bought some books and been given some. This blog post is dedicated to books and swag stuff I've got :)
Yes, I do have need to brag about it. I LOVE books and love write about them soooo, suck it up and be happy with me ;)
This past few weeks were great for my bookshelves.
Here we go...
I got Silos by Hugh Howey (Silos on Croatina, but you might know it as Wool Omnibus) for my birthday from my girls on work. I work in capital of Croatia, Zagreb, in a bookstore. Heaven for bookworm don't you think? Sometimes it's hard but I love it as long as I'm surrounded by books.
Around my birthday I bought all three books from Stark trilogy by J. Kenner, Oslobodi me, Uzmi me i Ispuni me (clik on them to read my reviews) as known (on English) as Release me, Claim me and Complete me.
Bez Nade Colleen Hoover (or Hopeless as many of you know it) is one of most wonderful books I've reed this year and got it from my boyfriend for my b-day, Croatian edition :)
“The sky is always beautiful.Even when it's dark or rainy or cloudy,it's still beautiful to look at....it'll be there no matter what...and I know it'll always be beautiful.”
― Colleen Hoover, Hopeless
I've been lucky to won some Amazon gift cards on other blog giveaways and bought Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins and To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.
“Just because something isn't practical doesn't mean it's not worth creating. Sometimes beauty and real-life magic are enough.”
― Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door
“Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That's the part of the risk. I don't want to be scared anymore.”
― Jenny Han, To All the Boys I've Loved Before
I've pre ordered my copy of Isla and Happily Ever After (click for review) months ago. I was soooo happy when it finally arrived (the book was late for almost three weeks, like I live on Mars).
“I am hard on myself. But isn’t it better to be honest about these things before someone else can use them against you? Before someone else can break your heart? Isn’t it better to break it yourself?” ― Stephanie Perkins, Isla and the Happily Ever After
Who doesn't love Harry Potter? I've started buying Croatian paperback editions though I have them in hardcover xD I couldn't resist xD
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
I've bought this one's today. They were on 50% off :D
Ohola Nasljednica by Lynn Raye Harris
Princeza i Kraljica by Philippa Gregory
U Okovima Ljubavi by Annie West
Djevica i Svetac by Carol Marinelli
U Zagrljaju Neprijatelja by Sarah Morgan
I was soooo happy when I won this swag giveaway from Kerry Heavens! Her books are great, I reviewed them both on my blog; Just Human and Still Human.
I hope I'll win some more gift cards for Amazon so I can buy both and have them on my bookshelf :)
“You left, but it wasn't your fault. So you've stayed perfect in my memory. I guess my fear is, if I let myself love you, you might turn out to be just human. And if you're just human, you could easily hurt me too. I couldn't survive being hurt by you Danny.”- Just Human
“You told me once that you were afraid I would turn out to be just human and that I would hurt you. I told you then that I am just human and that I could be hurt just as easily. Well I’m still human… I’m still me and I know we could destroy each other. But I don’t care, because life without you isn’t worth living...” -Still Human
I know that for some book bloggers this is nothing and that I dont have that much to brag about, that they get books to review on daily base from NetGalley or some other page, but books are books and I like to show mine :)
I decided to work some more on my blog and reviews and my New Year decision will be to join NetGalley and try get some books for review. But for now I buy my own copies :)
Did you get/buy some new books in recent time?
