what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
This week just flew by and the next thing I knew it was the weekend (which has also flown by way too fast *pouts*). I’ve spent most of this week playing KOTOR II: The Sith Lords in my spare time as well as catching up on my reading so nothing too exciting (for anyone else anyway – for me it was a dream week haha!) 😀
This weekend I’ve just chilled out reading Hunt the Fae by Natalia Jaster (I got an ARC because I’m on the ARC team – expect a review next week!) and bingeing Shadow and Bone. I’ve really enjoyed Shadow and Bone but it has reminded me I do need to get back to reading these books (only read the first book of the Grisha trilogy – when it was first released as The Gathering Dark in the UK and I own that edition which goes for big bucks these days!)
- Pre-order goodies from F.T. Lukens: I don’t have the book yet since In Deeper Waters isn’t out in the UK until June but I was happy to receive the pre-order swag including a signed book plate and super-cute stickers!
- Nessian book sleeve from Book Besties UK: I love this artwork so much and just had to get a sleeve featuring it.
- MXTX pins from NotVanessaLee: I am super-stoked with these awesome designs for each of the series – they are very detailed and stunning in person.
- Rhysand pin from Po Jainter: I had to get this pin to go with my other ACOTAR collection – it is very cool… 😉
