Goodie Basket (26): Book Haul & Blog Recap



Goodie Basket...is a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

(This meme is inspired by other book haul memes such as Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea and Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer )

In my Goodie Basket this week...

FOR REVIEW

*finished copy*  The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #2) by Michelle Hodkin
Simon & Schuster
sent from pub for review
This was such an awesome surprise from S&S and I actually did a little dance of appreciation when I opened the package it came in. I actually planned on buying a copy of this book next week and had been sad that I had to wait SO long to finally read it, so you can imagine my supreme happiness when a copy arrived at my door!

*signed finished copy*  The Stars Fell Sideways by Cassandra Marshall
sent from author for review
I will be reviewing this book later this month, as well as interviewing Cassandra and hosting a giveaway...so look for all that later this month!

Amazing new books! Congrats on your package from S&S. :) THat's fabulous! Also, great books from Netgalley. I considered requesting Dance of Shadows (that cover = GORGEOUS), but then I read a lot of negative reviews and that kind of put me off it. :( I hope you enjoy it though! Have a great week. :)
