Competition Prizes:
I received this beautiful necklace from Jennifer Laurens (author of Heavenly) after winning a giveaway on her blog.  Isn't it beautiful?  It even came with matching wing shaped earings!


  1. That's such a lovely necklace, and the books are great! I bought books today (shame on me), but I'm not letting myself do so for a while now haha :)

  2. I really loved the City of Bones series. Have you read it yet? It took me a little bit to get into but once I did I was hooked. then I want to read Fallen. I'm not familiar with the others.

  3. Yay. This IS great! Cute necklace and awesome books. Heavenly seems to be good. Its cover's so pretty! I loved City of Bones and already ordered my City of Ashes copy. Hmm. I also have read Fallen and liked it very much! Unfortunately, I still don't have my own copy... Getting it ASAP. The others I have never heard of, but I'll be glad if you enjoy them and tell us about it! :)

  4. What great reads and I love the necklace! Wow! Enjoy your books - forget the ban - LOL

  5. Great books you got this week. Fallen looks really good. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  6. I am a complete Mortal Instruments fangirl. So really hope you enjoy them and Fallen. That is an awesome book. Love angel mythology with a passion. Enjoy!

  7. Yes, I know, I need to get myself those books in the Mortal instruments series. Everyone keeps telling me that they are so good. I hope you have a wonderful time reading them and I can't wait for your reviews. :)

  8. I am about half way through the first Kitty book and I am dieing to know what you are going to think of it.. I don't think my review is going to a total positive one...

    Great other selection though! :)
