Books of the week #1

Instead of my "Favourite books of the week" post I want to do something new. From now on every Sunday I will look back at the books I read & enjoyed in the last week, the books I bought & received in the last seven days and the books I'm reading right now & plan to read next. I will call this new feature "Books of the week". 

In the last seven days I bought 5 new books

  • A weekend with Mr Darcy by Victoria Conelly
  • Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  • Eon by Alison Goodma
  • Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb
  • The girl with the silver eyes by Willo Davis Roberts
And I received an awesome package from Danny from the Bewitched Bookworms. She sent and borrowed me three exciting ARCs. Thanks so much Danny!

  • The unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • Awake at dawn by C.C. Hunter
  • Blood Rights by Kirsten Painter

In the last week I read 8 books and three of them were especially great and enjoyable.
My favourites of the week are
  • Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep
  • Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink
  • The girl with the silver eyes by Willo Davis Roberts

Right now I'm reading

  • A discovery of witches by Deborah Harkness
  • Between the Sheets by Robin Wells
  • The hunt of the unicorn by C.C. Humphreys

And next I plan to read

  • Witch Song by Amber Argyle
  • Crazy Sweet by Tara Janzen
  •  Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep (eARC)

    Wow you got some great books this week! I can't wait to add them to my to read pile!

    check out my in my mailbox!

  2. You have read 8 books?? In one week? Oh my, how do you manage that?? I'm happy to read 3 to 4 books in the same time ^^

    and I already like your new feature - two more books for my wishlist ;)

  3. That Conelly book sounds interesting and directly made it on my wishlist. I envy you the opportunity to already read "A discover of witches" - I'm gonna have to wait until it is released. Til then I'm curious what you think so I'm looking forward to your review.

  4. I'm so jealous of "Mara Dyer"... I have that pre-ordered and am counting down the days until it gets released next month!

    Is "A Discovery of Witches" good? I have it, but haven't read it yet because I haven't really been reading many adult books recently.

  5. Ok, three Sarah's makes think a bit complicated :)

    @ Sarah: Hi, will check out your pilw asap

    @ Melanie S. : I'm have my free time right now plus I limit the time I spend in front of the tv or computer.

    @ Sarah: Are you waiting for the German version of "Discovery of Witches"?
    I hope that the book by Conelly will be as cute as it sounds. I would love to read a really cute book right now.

    @ Sarah (Escaping through books): In the last weeks I also read a lot of YA so it's a nice change. "Discovery of Witches" is not fast paced and full of many little details and that's what I enjoy about it.

    I hope that I will like Mara as much as I hope to.

  6. Oh wow, I am so exiting that you will read the hunt of the unicorn. I hope it is good maybe i try to read it than in english too.

  7. A Discovery of Witches is really good! I purchased that one not long ago. I haven't heard of The Girl with the Silver Eyes, but it looks good. Happy Reading :)

  8. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is SO good!

    Check out Em's IMM!
    Also, check out our giveaway of Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor!

  9. I'm finally up to number one on the waiting list at the library for Discovery of Witches! It has taken forever. I can't wait to read it.

  10. New follower :) Love your blog design and some fantastic books in your collection :)

    Here's my "It's Monday! What are you reading?" post.

  11. Wow, great reads! Hope you have fun reading them!

  12. Oh, wow . . . some nice selections! Eon is definitely on my list, and I love everything Robin Hobb has ever written. Blood Rights was suc a great read (I managed to snag an ARC). Can't wait to see your thoughts on A Discovery of Witches and The Hunt of the Unicorn (both languishin on my maybe list).

    Here's what's in my Mailbox this Monday.

  13. I loved Discovery of Witches- it was a fun read. I have been wanting to read A Weekend with Mr. Darcy- hope you enjoy it!

  14. OMG!!! I'm so jealous! I managed to read 2 books over the weekend I thought I was doing really well! A lot of those books look really interesting and I'm off to add some of them to my wishlist!
