Gift from Holly Cupala:

Kiki Hamilton sent me a copy of The Faerie Ring for the upcoming blog tour, but I'm also blurbed in it! I couldn't get a good picture since my camera is crappy, but  yay!

Won from Princess Bookie's Contest Craze:
Truth & Dare Anthology
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon

I also won a jacket proof from Michelle Hodkin for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, along with a scene from the book which I can honestly say is fantastic and amazing and I am absolutely DYING for this book! She wrote something on the back of the proof as well as the scene, which was also just... rawr. Sorry the picture didn't come out well. The cover is SO gorgeous though, and the title is shiny! And it reflects weird from the flash. But it's pretty! And feels sexy. And I couldn't stop staring for like a day. Trust me. You want this book! Michelle also sent me a copy of Fallout by Ellen Hopkins, but I forgot to take a picture with it...

So that was my week! Definitely loving everything, and the contest stuff is always great to get in!
