Book Buying Ban #16 or My Last Sunday of It!

Five more days, and the ban is finished! FIVE MORE FREAKING DAYS! I feel really happy now, peeps ;))) How has your week been?

Here is what I've read:

SACRIFICIAL MAGIC and CHASING MAGIC were freaking fantastic. I love Stacia Kane, she is always on my auto-buy because the quality of her writing is unbelievable. I open her books and I know full well I'll be hooked from the first sentence. That's how amazing she is! GEEKOMANCY was adorably geeky, fun and quirky, and I enjoyed it very much. At last, REVOLUTION blew my mind away, it was so great. I finished the book and it made me feel like fish out of water, dizzy and disorientated... Read it if you can, it's out of this world!


SHATTERED GLASS failed to keep me interested as the plot was eery familiar to DAUGHTER OF THE NIGHT by the same author, and ILLUMINATE just pissed me right off. I'm sorry, in which universe it's normal for a sixteen-year old to have a crash on her older employer and him hitting on her at the same time? I don't care if there is whole angel-demon vibe going on, but I did not think it was healthy and I did not care about the heroine enough to read more. The balance of power between them was right off.


18 books left

Next Sunday I'll be talking about all the books I bought using Black Friday offers. Hopefully by that time I'll finish with the books currently on my list and be free to start afresh ;)

Please, don't forget that today is the last day to enter
All winners for finished giveaways will be chosen on Monday.

Now for the promised pics from London...

Fun in Covent Garden...

Me and Tracey Sinclair
Tracey's Dark Dates bracelet made by this artist.

Center of London teeming with people in the evening!

Good old Big Ben!

Circus near St. Paul's Cathedral which struck me as ironic...

Mind-blowing St.Paul's. 
Sorry for the quality of the pics. I did not use flash often enough and most of them came out too blurry.

By sheer chance we saw Orient-Express arriving at Victoria station and sneaked on the platform to take some pics before all the poshies in their furs and evening gowns start boarding. This one is on my bucket list, peeps :)

This is it. I'm leaving you in Florence's capable hands...
 Happy Sunday and keep on rocking!

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
