Galaxy Gazette: Book Haul and Recap! Issue #3 (May 13, 2012)

GG is inspired by Sophie's Monday News and the In My Mailbox meme by Kristi. Even though I'm not participating in IMM anymore, a few bloggers pointed out it's only right to credit Kristi since many of these new memes are all IMM inspired. (Including mine!)

Hey everyone! Thanks for coming back to visit my blog. I appreciate each and every one of my readers who come over ^___^

My Book Haul For This Week

If you click on the image, you'll be lead to the Goodreads page.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier

HOLY. FREAKIN. CRAP. Those are the three words when I saw I actually got accepted to read these three books on Netgalley! Eeeeep, many MANY thanks to each of the respected publishers and of course, to Netgalley! <333

The Nifty Kindle E-Book Deal of the Week:

Picture leads to Amazon page.
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Oh my, oh my, I love love love this book. It was so good! If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend that you do (besides it's only 0.99 right now!)

 The Recommended Read of the Week:

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

This book was just so freakin' fantastic. I absolutely LOVED it. It's one of the best fantasies I've ever read, and it's now an all time favorite of mine! <33 

Just a Heads Up... (Somewhat Irrelevant)

I might go into a hiatus soon. I feel like I'm kind of drifting into a life slump. (I've just gotten my heart broken into ten billion pieces by this jerk, and let me tell you, it hurts a lot.) I just feel really sad and alone right now, and books don't seem to offer an escape like they used to. So... poop. Ughhhh.

Weekly Recap:

I reviewed Storm by Brigid Kemmerer.
I did a super sappy thank you post to many people!
I reviewed Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta.

(Sadness, I only posted 3 times this week.)

What's your guys' weekly book haul?

Awesome haul! Looking foward to see what you think about Throne of Glass!

Happy reading! :)

Gianna said...

Great haul this week, Gianna! Throne of Glass and Seraphina (!!!) sound fabulous. I hope you enjoy your books and happy reading!

On a sadder note, I'm so sorry to hear that you're hurting. Whoever that jerk was, he's exactly that. A huge jerk. I hope you feel better soon, because a mean person like him doesn't deserve to have a great girl like you upset over him. <3 Stay strong, Gianna!

Gianna said...

Nice books!  I really want to read Throne of Glass.  Must get asap! :)
Enjoy your books!! :)


Gianna said...

Thanks Sophia! <33 Your thoughts really helped. :) <33

Gianna said...

Throne of Glass sounds really awesome, I can't wait to get into it! And thanks! :)

Gianna said...

THRONES OF GLASS (I always say Games of Thrones instead, ugh!) looks GOOD! I love historical novels, especially after I read the amazingness that is Grave Mercy♥ Isn't getting accepted from netgalley the best feeling ever? (and getting rejected, the WORSE?!) Also ((HUGS)) go on your hiatus girl, it's always good to take a step back and just... breathe and girl, like you said he's a JERK!! you still got your whole life ahead of you so don't even waste another second thinking about this (what seems to be) loser and this is probably the most cynical advice ever ever ever but I tell it to my friends all the time so yeah, you get it too: we came out of our mom's womb alone, were getting buried alone so don't waste your time on others who don't deserve it and in all honesty a significant other is not the most important thing out there so just do what makes you happy and screw the jerk :D

Gianna said...

Yay for Starcrossed <3 and Finnikin of the Rock looks awesome! Definitely going to check that one out. :) Lovely haul. Hope you enjoy.

I hope you feel better, love <3 Here's what you do, grab your favorite ice cream (pint size of course) and just do whatever, watch TV, watch a movie, who knows what. Just do what you want to do. I don't know you that well, but I believe you're a strong girl and you can totally pull through this. I know it totally hurts and I get it and I'm not going to say it gets easier and it won't hurt less or whatever because I don't know right? I just know that you can get through it and you'll find someone who is worth a million times better than this jerk and you'll forget all about it. You'll be happy and you'll laugh and you'll smile like no tomorrow. If this guy cannot see how awesomesauce you really are, well, he's not worth one bit. Again, feel better! I'm totes here if you need to vent or anything <33 

Gianna said...

<333 So true! I don't need a man anyways :3 *HUUGGGSSSS*

Gianna said...

Mucho mucho thankies darling! <3 Best advice ever about pint size ice cream :) <33

Dana said...

You got some great books love the seraphina cover!

Gianna said...

throne of glass looks nice and interesting! :)

Gianna said...

Throne of Glass looks good, you have to tell me if you like it! :D I also have Seraphina, and mind me, it sounds AMAZING. Can't wait to get started on it! I already read Starcrossed, and I KNOW I have to get Finnikin as soon as possible. 

Have a great week, Gianna! <3

YOUR MAILBOX! I'm SO excited for Throne Of Glass... AND FINNNIKIN!!!! BFF Kristin is CRAZY about this book and Melina in general... 

Also, *hugs you and doesn't let go* I am so sorry about the slump and heartbreak. I know how empty that sounds, and I wish I could say something more, but I know how much it hurts, and how overwhelming it is, and how bloody hard it it to stay positive, wondering how it can get better again after this... but it will. because you are SO beautiful and amazing, and worth so so SO much more amazing than any asshole jerk who wouldn't see what a freaking amazing thing he had in you. *sends bucketloads of virtual icecream and chocolate and non-fattening goodies*
Hopes you're oK xx

Gianna said...

I am so sorry you have been hurt D: D: D:  Let's kick some jerk butt!! I hope you are feeling better *hugs♥* and don't leave! I'm just getting back and I will miss you T_T 

Sorry for reading these so late too :/
