Before we start this week’s updates we're just going to re-cap of last week. 

We hope you've enjoyed our reviews this week and don't forget that we currently have three separate giveaways at the moments.  So if you haven't entered, now's your chance.

For review:
I just finished this book and I absolutely loved it. My review will be coming over the next few days once I figure what to say. :) Thank you Little Brown. 

I won these off the great blog called  A Cupcake and a Latte. Its a really good site. You guys should check it out. 
Quiet busy this week for me. What did you get in your mailbox? Don't forget to let me your links. 

Jess's In My Mailbox

Yay! I won. Lol I never win anyway so I was thrilled to win copies of these books plus some swag off Bella @ Cheezy Feet Books. The swag hasn't arrived yet but I'll post a little picture for when it does. Thank you to Bella for hosting a great giveaway.

Books Brought: 

Donna's Next Series.

I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who voted, to help me choose what series to read next. 
I can't believe 128 people  voted! The polls are closed and now but here's what the scores where:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins : 88 votes. 68%
Stray Series by Rachel Vincent: 11 votes. 8%
The Fever Series by Karen Moning: 16 votes. 12%
Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill: 10 votes. 13% 

So Yes! The Hunger Games WON!!! I'm really excited to start this series now, I think with all the  excitement around the movie, I do need to read them before. So again, thank you to everyone who voted. Lol I think we should get more polls up like this. It saves me trying to figure out what to read next. :)

You've both had some really fabulous books this week. So many there I want to read, like Bitter End, Bite Club and Spirit Storm (what a beautiful cover!). I hope you enjoy them all, and I really hope you enjoy The Hunger Games - that is my most favourite book of all time!
