Showcase Sunday 13. Free books.

This week, I got some amazing books. Most of them for free! There was a book sale and I helped them out, so I got to pick some books as a thank-you-gift! Netgalley was also kind enough to provide me with another book and I bought myself a little present. Just because I can.

Free books.
I only have to buy book 1, Vampire academy. I'm very happy that I got these!
Frostbite (Vampire Academy, #2)Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)

Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)

I'm still curious about this series, but I hear nothing but negative things. So it was fantastic that I could take them for free! House of night.

Betrayed (House of Night, #2)Untamed (House of Night, #4)Hunted (House of Night, #5)
Tempted (House of Night, #6) Burned (House of Night, #7)Awakened (House of Night, #8)

I decided to snag these away as well.
God's SpyThe Venetian Betrayal (Cotton Malone, #3)The Fallen Blade (The Assassini, #1)
God's spy.
The venetian betrayal.
The fallen blade.


A.E Rought - Broken.
Expected publication:
January 8th 2013 by Strange Chemistry.

Imagine a modern spin on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein where a young couple's undying love and the grief of a father pushed beyond sanity could spell the destruction of them all.

Finally! Ruth Frances Long - The treachery of beautiful things.
The Treachery of Beautiful Things 
A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction. The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.

Fantastic week for me. Link me up with your haul!

  15. Lovely haul, I love The Infernal Devices series, and we've got Broken in common this week. Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  16. Wow! Great Haul! You got a lot of really good looking books.


  17. I really need to read the Vampire Accademy series! I loved the first four books in the HoN series, but from there they just got boring, for me, and went in a completely random direction. Clockwork Angel! I have that to read, too. It looks so great.(:

    Happy reading!<3

  18. Wow, amazing book haul! I love those books!
    Happy Reading!

  19. Great haul of books, Broken is top of my 'must read' list!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, happy reading!

  20. I loveeeeeeee Clockwork Angel! Cassie's Infernal Devices are far better than TMI, so they're really good! So is VA, so I hope you enjoy all these awesome novels! :D

  21. Great haul! So many awesomely spooky covers!

    Enjoy :-D

  22. Broken sounds really interesting. Hope you enjoy all of your books!

  23. Wow great books! There are a lot I haven't heard of before. Tome of the Undergates sounds pretty cool. Also The Treachery of Beautiful Things. I have heard of that one before and it sounds great!

    Have an awesome week. :)


    I wasn't a huge fan (or a fan at all) of House of Night, but I still read the first five books for some odd reason. Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did :)

  25. OOh very nice!! I loved the Vampire Academy series! Enjoy!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  26. Thanks for stopping by my IMM! I feel like the House of Night has dragged on for too long, but they started out pretty good. Enjoy your books!

  27. Wow Mel!! You got a ton of books! Yay *does happy dance* for Vampire Academy!! I hope you love the series as much as I did. I'm wondering about requesting Broken too. I have so many I have to review already though, I probably shouldn't. I'll look for your review, Mel. :)

  28. I adore the Vampire Academy series but never got into House of Night. Thats one of the nice ways of being paid - with books! :-)

  29. Need to get my hands on Treachery of Beautiful Things. Looks SO good! I personally did not like the House of Night series. I read 3(?) of the books, I think. Poor writing and a plot a wasn't interested in made me stop. Interested to see what you think. That's an AWESOME way of being paid for helping with a book sale, btw... *goes off to help random booksales*

  30. Soooo many good books! Can't believe you got all of those amazing books for free!! I've read the first few in the House of Night series but haven't gotten round to finishing it yet. It's really long so I hope the story hasn't fizzled out!

    What's Hot?

  31. Lovely books this week! Happy reading! :)

  32. EEEEEEEEEEEEE! VAMPIRE ACADEMY! I only finished the recently earlier this year but it's definitely one of my alltime favourite series! I loved everything about it! I truly hope you enjoy the series and can't wait for you to read Bloodlines too ;) Clockwork Angel! So glad to hear that you loved it! I love love loved the book so much + Will, Tessa & Jem!

    Anyway, awesome books this week, Mel! ♥ Happy reading!

  33. Free books are the best! I'm jealous about Treachery of Beautiful Things, as that's one I've been wanting to read for a long time, and I keep seeing Broken around on other people's lists this week, but swore I'd stay away from NetGalley. I hope you end up loving everything you picked up!

  34. I hope you love Clockwork Angel!! The Infernal Devices series is great.

    Happy Reading! (And congrats on all the free books!)

  35. Wow...awesome haul this week...and how nice that helping out turned into some great free reads!!
