Sunday Post (2)

Hi everyone!

It's been two weeks since I'd done my last Sunday Post, and a lot has happened since then, both blog-related and personal. December is always busy for me, but I'm enjoying it a lot so far.

Here's what I've been up to lately:

The Lovely Cassie Alexander, author of Nightshifted and Moonshifted, wrote a guest post about her experience during Hurricane Sandy. Cassie is a registered nurse and her post is amazing so make sure to check it out. There's also a giveaway of signed and personalized copies of her first two books.

I reviewed:
Trapped (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #5) by Kevin Hearne
Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo
Moonshifted (Nightshifted, #2) by Cassie Alexander

Next week, my reviews of Defiance by C.J. Redwine and The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke will be posted.
Now, here's what I have to share.

Sarah Fine, author of Sanctum, one of my favorite 2012 releases, kindly sent me a bonus scene from Malachi's point of view and two Sanctum wristbands, one of which my daughter immediately stole.

 Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst
Pivot Point by Kasie West
The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez

What did you guys get? Leave me a link and I'll be right there.


  1. what an awesome haul Maja..and I would have stolen a bracelet too if I was your daughter..too cool! Enjoy your new lovelies!The Sunday Post

  2. Glad to have you back this week, Maja! :) I can't wait to read your review of Defiance. :) Oooh, I've heard amazing things for Vessel-- that the writing is absolutely fabulous! The Space Between Us sounds really great as well. Great books this week, happy reading!

  3. I read your review on Pivot Point on GRs but I don't think you put it up here yet. Based on that I guess I need to lower my expectations somewhat. I too received the chapter in Malachi's POV from Sarah Fine. I just need to read that gem! I can't wait to see what you thought of Defiance! Enjoy your reads Maja. :)

  4. I got Moonshifted a few days (well, about two or more weeks, actually) ago and still have to read it.. I'm actually REALLY wary because I liked the first one, and.. second book syndrome is a thing to be afraid of etc. pp. Bookmarked this post so that, once I read it, I can check your review! :)

  5. Maja such a cute haul this week, I remember we both loved Martinez Virtuosity, so I can't wait to see what you think of The Space Between Us, I don't think I've seen many reviews around for it, so as per usual I'll be stalking your updates! Vessel has just the most gorgeous cover ever! I hope the book lives up to it too! Hope you enjoy all your reads hun! :)

  7. I've heard nothing but good things about Vessel! I really need to pick it up as it sounds like my kind of read. Hope you enjoy! :)

  8. Vessel and Pivot Point! The covers are gorgeous. I've been seeing some good reviews on Vessel. I can't wait to see what you think about it. Have fun reading them :D


  9. I've heard great things about Let the Right One In, Vessel, and Pivot Point! :) I actually picked up The Space Between Us this week too and can't wait to read it! I loved Martinez's debut, Virtuosity, so I hope her next novel is just as good. Amazing haul, Maja! :D

  17. Ha, if I was your daughter, I would have taken both wristbands - one for each arm. ;) I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Vessel and The Space Between! I'll also have to keep an eye out for your Assassin's Curse review. :) Lovely haul, Maja!

  18. Oh, I really want to read Sanctum! I'm glad you're having a nice December thus far. Looks like you got some interesting books. I've been curious about Let the Right One In for awhile now (though I have not seen the movies or anything).

  19. Let the Right One In was a creep-fest! Looking forward to your thoughts about it. :)

  22. *sigh* December is the busiest month for me too, and I feel sort of pathetic because of my lack of blog posts... Anyhow, awesome haul, Maja. :) Pivot Point and Vessel both have fascinating premises, and I look forward to your opinions of them both. Also, I can hardly wait for your review of The Assassin's Curse - I really liked it, despite some of the flaws. :) Enjoy your goodies, Maja darling!
