Goodie Basket (24): Book Haul & Blog Recap

Goodie 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 )

I received an ARC of the second book in this series, but have yet to read the first, so when I saw it at my bookstore I knew I just had to get it!


I was gifted this AWESOME homemade bookmark (in my fave colors!!!) for an RAK/birthday gift from the lovely and talented Miki! This is seriously one of the sweetest things anyone has ever done for me! Thank you Miki!!

Yay for Mark of Athena! It's pretty enjoyable. It's definitely a middle-of-the-series book though. It moves the story along but it's not super exciting like how the previous 2 books have been. Hope you enjoy it!

Nice haul.

I've read Insurgent and have The Girl Who Navigated... on my Kindle to read.

I've also heard about London Eye and the description of The Hunger Games meets X-Men sounds interesting.

Enjoy your reads.
