Showcase Sunday 18. HarperCollins.

I said last week that this haul would be awesome and that is because I got my first review copies from a publisher! I contacted HarperCollins International and they were so kind to provide me with four of my listed books. They might even work in the future with me, so you can imagine my happiness. As you can see (my bookmark is sticking out), I already started to read The girl of Fire and Thorns from Rae Carson.

Review Books.

I also managed to snatch some copies from Netgalley:

The forgotten Queen - D.L BogdanBetween two thorns - Emma NewmanRapunzel Untangled - Cindy Bennett
What is your haul this week? :)

  2. I loved Hemlock which really took me by surprise as I'm not usually a fan of paranormal romance. Hope you enjoy!

  50. Awesome haul, Mel! WHAT'S LEFT OF ME was one of my favorites of 2012, so I really hope you enjoy it as well. I've got EVERNEATH sitting right on my shelf, and I'm super excited to start on it.
