Week in the Nest - 4.26.15

Week in the Nest is a new feature on the blog where I'll discuss bookish things from the past week or so! As soon as summer comes, it will be more of a weekly meme. But for now, I just really wanted to share with you my book haul this month heheh. I've linked to The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews :)

(Click on the cover to be linked to Goodreads)
Purchased:
-Ebooks + Physical copies-
  

-Audiobooks-
 

Pre-ordered:
Featuring one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends: Connor Cobalt from the Addicted series!
It comes with 15 other YA/NA novels too for only 99 cents so I thought, "Gimme".

For Review:
   
Via NetGalley. Thank you Patchwork Press - Cooperative, Skyscape and Random House Children's!

Surprise Gift:
The super sweet Tanya at T&G Book Boutique gifted this lovely book to me.
It sounds like an emotional read which is right up my alley so I can't wait to dive in!
THANK YOU THANK YOU, TANYA *blows kisses*

This Week:
Waiting on Wednesday (11)
Review - Cinder by Marissa Meyer(?)

I subscribed to OwlCrate, a monthly YA subscription box where you'll receive one newly published YA book and a few bookish goodies! I first heard of it from Siiri (bless that darling because I don't often watch booktubers and I probably wouldn't have heard of it otherwise)! Then after watching a number of unboxing videos, my interest was piqued! I had to give it a shot. One thing I really like about OwlCrate is how each box is centered around a theme which they announce on the 15th of the month prior. The theme for the May box (the one I'll be getting) is Parallel Worlds. I can't wait!

There were a number of wonderful recap/discussion posts in the blogosphere last week!
Aimee at Deadly Darlings recaps her trip to Japan and entering the wizarding world of Harry Potter
Allie at Little Birdie Books asks how do you keep the spark in blogging?
Benish at Feminist Reflections talks about themes in NA books that she dislikes
Jeann at Happy Indulgence discusses emotional vs. critical reviews
Lisa & Becca at Lost in Literature discusses the difficult choice of ebooks, physical books or audiobooks

  2. There's a wide array of books there. I'm very boring in my taste I'm afraid and stick to one or two genres!

  9. Congrats on snagging an OwlCrate subscription! I'm super jealous! Maybe I'll be able to get one soon. Everyone I know who has received one loved it, hope you will too.

    I haven't read any of those books myself, but I see a few that I am going to my TBR right this moment.

  12. Oh my gosh, I'm slightly jealous - there are some books I've been DYING to read (mainly Simon and Ari & Dante on your list. I'm quite interested in hearing what you think about them - I've heard some awesome buzz. :D And yay for OwlCrate! I love the idea of a bookish subscription box, and getting a box of bookish goodies every month can never be a bad thing ;)

    1. Ain't that the truth!! I was a little hesitant to subscribe because it's quite pricey but thought it wouldn't hurt to try it once to see for myself. I hope you get to read them soon!! I've only heard good things so far :D

  15. Thanks for sharing my post, love! And gah, I would totally love to subscribe to OwlCrate and the likes, but unfortunately shipping will probably cost a fortune, so... :( I HOPE YOU LOVE SIMON! It's just the cutest thing ever I swear. And 5 to 1 was pretty brilliant too. :)

    1. Dude, I'm reading it right now and am really enjoying it! I don't know if it's because Sudasa's chapters are written in verse, but I'm just flying through it!!
