So, I got a lot this week. More than I should have with trying to finish up Grad school classes and the stack I already have. Oh well though.

Library:

The Walking Dead Comics: Books 1 – 6 – M and S love the show on AMC so I grabbed the comics from the library. They look really good even though I never, ever read comics.

House of Night: Betrayed (Book 2), Untamed (Book 4), and Hunted (Book 5). by PC Cast and Kristin Cast – We didn’t have book 3 in at the library so I’ll grab it when it comes back in.

Bought:

Saqqhique by Catherine Fisher – I found the UK version on thebookdepository.com and decided to order it since the US version doesn’t come out until December. Can’t wait to read it!

Torment by Lauren Kate – I just finished Fallen last week and loved it so I picked this up at the book store.

Night World Vol. 3 by L J Smith – I haven’t read the first two volumes but I found this for $4 so decided to pick it up.

Kindle:

Night Angel: Book of Love by Abra Ebner – I received the second book in this series through a book tour so I’m trying to read the first one.

NetGalley:

The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa – I haven’t read the first in this series yet but heard they are great so I scooped this up on NetGalley when it came out.

Book Tour:

Knight Angels Book of Revenge by Abra Ebner – This looks really good! I hope I get through the first one so I can read this before I have to send it to the next person on the list!

Well, that’s it for this week. What did you get?
