Galactic Haul: The Awesome Lone Book Edition (5/19/12)

Galaxy Gazette didn't seem to work out for me LOL. So, now I'm just calling it a Galactic Haul, which is basically my book haul of the week, weekly recap and recommendation. :) Inspired by all the many different book haul memes~



This week, I believe I only got one book but it's one book that blew my mind away! (Edit: Just snagged some awesome books from my library! :)



For Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry 
(Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Netgalley and Harlequin TEEN! ♥)

This book pushed me back into the contemporary genre, and I'm now craving more books like this! :D ♥ It's one of the best romances I've read. That's right folks, this book goes up with Sweet Evil. (And if you know me, you know I LOOOOOOVE Sweet Evil.)

And guys, like holy shit, Noah Hutchins is just freakin' hot on that cover. (I LOVE YOU NOAH, BBY ♥)

From the Library: The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, Wither by Lauren DeStefano, Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

The Sky is Everywhere sounds reallllly good. I'm craving contemporaries right now (Thanks a LOT, PTL) and this sounds just like what the doctor ordered!

Wither is an interesting lookin' dystopian and lot of my friends on Twitter are raving about it and couple aren't... I can't wait to see how this book turns out to be for me. :D

Darkness Becomes Her... just yes. Just YES. Mythology, silver haired girl with teal eyes, romance? Hell yes hell yes hell yes! ♥

Recap of this Week:
I reviewed Taste, Obsidian, and Kill Me Softly.
I updated my Bout of Books challenge page.

Jaime @ The Perpetual Page-Turner just read The Sky is Everywhere and RAVED about it.  I thought it sounded interesting, but I am MUCH more interested in reading it after seeing the cover that you posted!  It's amazing how a cover can make such a difference, hey?

Gianna said...

I like the new name :) although I liked the other one too :D You got awesome books! Enjoy them and can't wait to hear your thoughts on all of them.

Lovely haul this week, Gianna! I like WIther although I'm not completely agree with the main character. Still, the book is worth a shot and it's a very different take in Dystopian stories! Oh, I can't wait to read your review of Pushing The Limits, you make me desperate to have it now! Darkness Becomes Her and The Sky is Everywhere sound amazing! <3

Happy reading, and enjoy your books! :)

I got PUSHING THE LIMITS this week, too, and cannot wait to finally read it. I've been craving to get a copy of it ever since I first read its summary and when I saw it on NetGalley I freaked out a tiny little bit. Glad to hear that you loved it so much! :)

Wow, great books! I also requested Pushing the Limits. I have my fingers crossed to see if they accept my request! I'll let you know if I do *---* I also have The Sky is Everywhere, but never gotten around to read it. And it's in Spanish, so... I hope I like it, because it sounds really good :) Gosh! I really need to read Wither someday, too!

Have a wonderful week <3

I second, third, fourth, and MILLIONTH your recommendation for Kill Me Softly -- holy moly, I LOVED THAT BOOK SO MUCH!!!! Even though I have a million other books to review instead of this one,  I'm planning on posting a gushing review of it anyways! x) And everyone seems to be saying the exact same thing about Pushing the Limits and Noah! It's making me SO eager to get my hands on that book! Wither is just made of awesome on its own! ;)

Amazing galactic haul, Gee! I hope you have an amazing reading week! <3
