eBooks

Invisible by Cicily Anne Paterson:
This was a free eBook from Amazon UK (and I think  it's still free, if you want to check it out). It had some pretty decent reviews, and seeing as it's free, I thought I'd get it on my Kindle and give it a shot at some point.
On a side note, I also love the cover - it makes me crave summer!

Fated by Alyson Noel:
This one is in the Kindle spring sale at the moment, so I picked it up for 99p. I was going to get it ages ago, but something stopped me from picking it up (I don't really know what), but I thought for 99p, I might as well get it and see what I think. I'm hoping to get to it soon!

The Academy: Game On by Monica Seles:
This one is a review book via NetGalley from Bloomsbury. I got an email from their publicity department about it, and I thought I'd put in a request. In all honesty, I can't remember too much about it, but if the cover is anything to go by, I'm guessing there is tennis involved, which is new - don't think I've read a book where the protagonist plays tennis. It seems as though it might be a nice summer holiday read, so I'll give it a go then.

Scrapbook of my Revolution by Amy Lynn Spitzley:
This is another I picked up from NetGalley this weekend, and again I can't remember too much about it, but the cover really caught my eye (no pun intended). Looking at the synopsis again now, I see that the main character has gold skin, and she can read the emotions of others around her. This sounds like a pretty different YA fantasy novel, so I'm looking forward to checking it out!

Other videos this week ...

Cinder and Scarlet are great, Scarlet soooo good! And I have to get Carriger's books, I've waited long enough. :D

My Haul

I feel so out of touch when I see books like the Cinder & Scarlett and haven't read them. I'm slowly buying all the Soul Screamers books so I can read them all back to back when I head in. I've only read the first so far, and I was partway through reading the second on Kindle when my Kindle broke, so I'm now collecting them all on paperback instead. And the Alyson Noel looks awesome.

Happy Easter to you.

Amazing books, Dani! I need to read the Lunar Chonicles series, they seem to be ruling the book blogosphere at the moment! I really enjoyed Between Shades of Grey so Out of the Easy looks good.

I love classics so I am big fans of Peter Pan and The Secret Garden. I have heard great things about Fated too :)

Happy Reading and Happy Easter!
