The Postman Knock #8 or Oops I Went A Little Mad Edition!

Hey ho, folks! This is how I feel today...

I've already written about the results of my ban here. As you can see from my huge book haul, it's ended, I've reached my goals and I'm ecstatic! Thank you all for your support and virtual hugs, I really needed them at times...

Here's what I've got (freebies were downloaded from my wishlist within the last 4 months; I used Black Friday offers to buy books, and all review copies are from this week)

REVIEW COPIES


FREEBIES


BOUGHT

These were much much cheaper from Books on Board rather than ebooks on Amazon, and I had them on my wishlist for ages!


These are all Amazon Kindle bargains.

Here you go, that's me done until Christmas. :D

READ this week:

RESONANCE was amazing. It's the second book of this author I've read and I really am impressed. This one is talking about environmental disaster and two scientists' race to minimize the damage, really gripping! THE ZERO DOG WAR made me giggle all the way through. It's full of snark, craziness in a good way and exaggerated villains and heroes, - in other words FUN. Read it! THE INNOCENT was so intense. This is the second thriller I've read from Taylor Stevens. The first one, The Informationist, ended up one of my favorite reads of 2011. The main heroine, androgynous Vanessa Michael Munroe is such an awesome psychotic badass, you'd love her :D PRETTY WHEN SHE DIES was a decent read, but I can't add much more to that. The same can be said about BLOOD KIN. It's nice but I don't really like that it's more paranormal romance than urban fantasy, the ratio just doesn't do any favors to the plot. At last, LUCAS was scrumptious, and I read the book in one go. Scorching, fast-paced and lacking usual alpha male jerkiness, D.B.Reynolds writes one of the very few PNR series I adore, and she is on my absolute autobuy.

DNF:

SYKOSA was a constant stream of teenage consciousness along with jerking off her boyfriend and some weird ass thinking. I couldn't stomach it to be honest. I've looked up some reviews on this book and it seems that you either like it or hate it, so it's really a matter of taste. DARKNESS FALLS started much weaker than the previous book and the main heroine was very rude and obnoxious towards her grieving mother. I really took it to heart and stopped reading. Off it goes to a charity shop.

This is it.

Next week look out for a couple of giveaways and have a lovely Sunday!
There is one giveaway happening right now if you're interested *wink*

Ciao!
