So this week was quite a lovely week for me. I got some super exciting news and I’m still in shock about it!

The Infernals by John Connolly

The Infernals by John Connolly Amazon | BD | Goodreads

You might recognize this one, I’ve gotten it before for review from Netgalley. I purchased it [actually I WAS going to purchase and lovely Pabkins gifted it to me!] It’s going to be a very special book on my shelf forever.

me - quoted, back cover up top, inside cover on bottomI am a HORRID picture taker but that is me quoted! On the back cover [up at the top] and then inside! I can’t believe it still. I feel so honored.

The Gates by John Connolly, Die for Me by Amy Plum

The Gates by John Connolly Amazon | BD |

Die For Me by Amy Plum Amazon | BD | Goodreads

So excited that Die For Me was on sale [thanks Amanda for tipping me off!] It’s been on my wish list forever now. The Gates is the first book in the Samuel Johnson series, The Infernals being the second, and I’ve wanted to read it ever since I read The Infernals [ Pabkins also gifted this one to me *muah!* ]

  1. Great books! Of Poseidon looks super good … I’ve seen that around a lot lately! I’ve only read one other John Connolly book, but I really liked it. I should really check out more of his stuff!

    Happy reading! 🙂

    • Yes yes! the review books sure do stack up quickly. I started going back and forth on Immortal Rules and Passage switching off every 2 chapters but the Passage is hurting my wrist so I put myself on the library waiting list for the kindle copy cause I’m not buying a kindle copy when i already bought the paperback. From now on anything over 500 pages = buy the kindle not the physical copy.

    • Yes, I feel like I’ve seen Die for Me all OVER the place, so excited it was on a fantastic sale so I was able to snag it up! Now to find time to read it, hehe 😀 Thanks for dropping in!

  6. Wow, great selections this week! Die For Me is awesome and I’m in love with the cover. Have seen the sequel’s, Until I Die cover? It’s totally to die for. Sweet Evil is rather hot and popular these days. My GR buddy was willing to sacrifice her liver to have it. Haha.

  8. I’ve got those two John Connolly ones. Great books and Blackbirds I preordered just waiting now for book depository to deliver it.

  9. Andrea @ The Busy Bibliophile says:

    I also loved Die For Me! I’m glad you were able to get it for a steal. And congrats on being published! That’s quite an honor.

  10. JOHN CONNOLLY! YES. ♥ For so long I put him off and put him off (I kept getting him mixed up with Michael Connelly). One of the blogs I follow posted a review of The Book of Lost Things and I knew right then and there I needed to read it. I found a copy at work and instantly fell in love.

    & that’s beyond awesome you were quoted!! 🙂 Congratulations!

    My IMM!

  11. A big congrats for the quote. I love the cover of infernals. SOme new great books to read, I hope you”ll enjoy them all!

  15. I bought the calling right when it came out. I was so curious how the story will go on. And I have to day, the second book was amazing. So much tension, I was glued to the pages.

  17. The first book was a bit slow and almost disappointing, but the second is so much better and I really want to know now what happens next. I hate waiting for the next book, especially if it’s another year or so.
    Nimue recently posted..Winner!

  18. Thanks I definitely hope I do! A few of the books I’ve read this year have disappointed me. Hoping none of these do!
