    I would choose Gabriels Redemption!

  2. Grace Fonseca

    Awesome haul of books. Timebound looks interesting. I haven’t seen that around. Heard really awesome things about Defy. Come check out my haul as well.


  3. Jess @ Such A Novel Idea

    Oooh Fire & Flood!

    You got some nice looking books. I thought Defy was okay, but I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I was. I hope it works for you!

    Thanks for stopping by my STS.

  4. Great haul! I got Defy last week, and I hope it will be as good as I think :)
    You have several other good-looking books in your stack, there.
    Thanks for stopping by earlier :) Have a great weekend, and Merry Christmas!

  5. Chrissi Reads

    Brilliant haul this week! I hope that you enjoy everything that you’ve got!

  6. Very nice haul! Fire and Flood looks really good, and I’ve noticed lots of bloggers getting Defy this week. Enjoy all your books!

  7. Cait

    Poison Dance was nice…just not long enough. (Er, lol, it is a prequel novella I guess!) I wasn’t a big fan of Defy. The love triangle wasn’t different from any other triangle. I hope you enjoy your books! My StS!

  8. Been trying to request Defy directly from the Publisher. Sadly, I haven’t gotten any feedback yet. NG also disapproved my request.

    Happy reading and merry Christmas!

    I am very excited for Defy. Sounds amazeballs. Happy reading.

  11. Kezia D

    Ooh Fire and Flood! I’ve been hearing that it’s good!! I hope you’ll love it :D and I wonder why the cover reminds me of Antigoddess by Kendare’s probably because of the feather lol :p Meh, unfortunately I didn’t love Defy. The concept is full of potential but the romance (the love triangle) ruined the plot. I hope you’ll like it more than I did! Thanks for stopping by my blog btw! :D You had an awesome haul!!

  12. Great haul of books! I think just about every title is either on my wishlist or my TBR but I especially want to read Timebound and Where the Rock Splits the Sky.

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading :)

  13. Braine

    Been seeing fire and flood, quite an interesting plot and I sure hope it’s as good as it promised. Merry Christmas ladies!

  14. Cool haul. Enjoy your new additions :)

    Happy Holidays!
