Good morning, everyone! I hope your weekend is good and long just like mine:) We are celebrating Queen Jubilee here, which means that i'm not working Sunday but start on Tuesday instead :)

Here is what I have in my mailbox...


I loved book #1 Firelight, so Moonglow is a must read for me! Thank you, Grand Central Publishing!

For review

I totally blame Hannah for that, who dragged my kicking and screaming self into a blog tour for this book :) However, looking at the premise me thinks it's totally my cup of tea...


We are going to sunny Portugal for a week in the end of the month and these are my holiday reads :) Fifty Shades Freed was £2.70 on Kindle or £3.00 paperback, so I just had to buy it, and Captivated received a gorgeous review from Katiebabes, and I was intrigued enough to splash out to see what was all that gushing about...
Dear Author recommended this book in great detail, and their recommendations work for me most of the time, plus it was only £2.60 on Amazon.

Library sale

I went to my library on Monday to donate some of my books, and they had a sale! No idea what these books are about apart from that the first one looks steampunkish, but hey, - you can't beat the price of 25 pence per book, right?

Kindle Freebie

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer is hosting a giveaway to promote this book. Twitter entry was mandatory, so I couldn't enter, but hey, the book is free on Amazon and sounds intriguing :)

This is it. How was your book haul this week? 

Music Video

Very much feel good, summery music...
Happy Sunday!

Oh you too, I can't wait to start moonglow, th ecover is so gorgeous! Enjoy!

here is mine

Mel said...

Some very steamy books this week - I approve! :-) Hope you enjoy the long weekend - it looks very wet outside today :-(

Hannah @ Once Upon A Time said...

I did not drag you kicking and screaming and you know it! :p

Also, also.. GLASS BOOKS! I love that one. It's so.. FECKING WEIRD. So desperately want to get my hands on book two. My review of Glass Books from my steampunk feature. I honestly think I could write a better review these days but if it convinces you to read it at all then it's all good.

Yiota said...

You guys have cool libraries! Ours are a little lame :p Frequent Traveller has an amazing cover. It will look good printed ^.^

Ellie Warren said...

That Hannah, she's such a bully ;)

Hannah @ Once Upon A Time said...

Heyy.. yeah, okay, I am. But you all love me for it. ;)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Melliane, so great! I love covers for this series - whoever did them is an amazing artist. Hope you enjoy it too!

Mel, what miserable weather we're having! Again. I'm supposed to go bowling today, and I really really don't want to!

Hannah, LOL! You see, even Ellie agrees with me :) I did see your review when I was adding this book to my Goodreads TBR, and it cheered me up. We love weird :)

Yiota, I think UK libraries are not as good as US but we're trying :) and I did notice Frequent Traveller because of the striking cover at first.

Jessica@a GREAT read said...

Nice!! I was going to request Moonglow, having enjoyed Firelight, but I hesitated! I just have too much on my plate as it is. Looks really good though!

Happy Reading!

Here's my STS

Have a GREAT day!

Petra said...

The books from library sale look interesting, especially the Glass Books of the Dream Eaters sounds really good! :)
Enjoy your holiday! ;)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Jessica, some days I just have to avoid Netgalley, because I end up requesting every time I'm there, so I know how you feel! :)

Petra, thanks! I'm looking forward to reading that book!

Enjoy the books :)
Captivated sure captivates me

Giselle said...

I've heard amazing things about Easy lately I really want to order that one asap!! Awesome haul!

Joyous Reads said...

Oh hello. Captivated LOOKS yummy. I might just have to check that out. Have a great week, babe!

Aleksandra Dee said...

*sigh* gorgeous eye candy. *.*
now to the point - yaaaay you got Easy! I want to read that book so bad, everyone seems to love it. :D Great haul!

Aleksandra @ Divine Secrets of a Little Bookworm

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Some great sounding books. :) Hope you enjoy the second book, Moonglow. :) Have a great week!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Kimba, thank you! I'm always very selective! LOL

Blodeuedd, Joy, I've read Captivated already, and it's very very hot, but don't expect much of world building :)

Giselle, Alexandra, you MUST read Easy!!! It's fantastic!

Melissa, you too! have a wonderful week, and I'm looking forward to Moonglow!

Bea said...

You need twitter! It's easy and you don't have to spend a lot of time on there. :)

I haven't read the 50 Shades books but I'm starting to weaken. I hope you have fun in Portugal!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

i know you are right, but it scares me :))) I just think how much more time I'll spend online going through the blogs, blogging and being on twitter... and it's just like a big black hole ;)) I'm sure I'll get there eventually :)

Bea said...

Oh, it can be a time suck, no doubt! But you also meet new people, try new authors and bloggers, heck you can even win books! :D

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
