I'M (ALMOST) BACK!
Mid-August and September have been an exhausting month, as there was a college event celebrating World Tourism Day at my university. Our section was one of the participants, so we had to prepare for the following competitions: dance, booth making and food showcasing. That said, last month I was only school, props, school works, repeat.
This October, only a few more days left of blood, sweat and tears which consists of roleplay, declamation, research, documentation, projects and more school works. One more week until final exams and I'M FINALLY FREE!
WHAT'S IN MY MAIL BOX?
Last month, I have received some mails and books that brightened up those days even though I haven't had much time as I'd like to read, but I'm hoping I can get back on track soon as semestral break is near. Yay!
The titles in purple are signed.
Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis
I immediately signed up for the blog tour
of Cage of Deceit
as soon as I've read its synopsis. I've always been a fan of books that have assassins in it! Blame if for my love of Assassin's Creed and Throne of Glass series. That said, I've had high expectations of books like these and I'm very happy that this book, Cage of Deceit, has exceeded my expectations! Check out my review post
as part of the blog tour.
Also, I just learned that this book was a spin-off story of True Reign series. How amazing is that? In case you didn't know, the first book of True Reign series, The Key, is free right now! Go one-click it
Diamonds in the Rough by Michelle Madow
When Michelle Madow posted on the street team that there was a bunch of copies of Diamonds in the Rough hanging around and giving them away in exchange for a review, I couldn't email her fast enough! I was so happy; this was the time when my aunt was coming back here to the Philippines. I haven't read Diamonds in the Rough yet and I think I will need to re-read The Secret Diamond Sisters because I haven't touched my other books for quite a while now. (I'm sorry, my preciouses!)
Air Awakens by Elise Kova
Seriously, September was the month that I was unlucky and lucky at the same time. Elise Kova had posted that there were misprints of Air Awakens
sent to Amazon. They were going to destroy those, but she said someone would want the books; giving them away in exchange for an honest review. It was a US only shipping, but I still filled out the form, fingers crossed, hoping I'll get lucky and have one. Like I've mentioned before, my aunt was coming back home and that time my dear friend back in the US was willing to ship my things to me so I also included that when I was filling out the form. I didn't receive a reply at first, but then I joined a twitter chat and started spreading about it. Elise tweeted me back that I would be receiving one! YAY!
Now, the precious book is here! I'm halfway finished because I've been busy with school works. (Bummer.)
Even though I have one now, I still bought a digital copy. Haha! I can't resist its gloriousness.
Sparked by Lily Cahill
I won Sparked by Lily Cahill from a BookLikes giveaway! The synopsis intrigued me; it's like a forbidden love type of story I think. I haven't read it yet, but I have high expectations for this book. I hope it will bring strong emotions out of me and I hope the guy is swoon worthy, if you know what I mean. *winks*
You can check Sparked
Fire Falling by Elise Kova
I received Fire Falling from the author in exchange for a review. I hope I can finish Air Awakens fast enough, but I still have final exams so maybe I can sneak reading in between lectures ... Haha! No spoilers, please!
I also received some Fire Falling bookmarks to give away so check back occasionally on my blog for my review of Air Awakens and Fire Falling to win signed bookmarks!
