Weekly Updates

Happy Sunday Everyone!  Here is our weekly update.

Donna's weekly buys or swaps.

I've brought and swapped a few books this week BUT I haven't received all of them yet so, I thought it would be easier just to provide you guys will the links to the books. As soon as I've read them, I will be posting reviews so watch this space. 

XVI by Julia Karr (Thank you to Jodie from Books for Company) 

Leave us some feedback if you've read any of the above books in the comment box below. I'd love to know what you 

Jessica's weekly buys or swaps

I haven't  really swapped any books yet, but I recently bought (after swearing to myself that I wouldn't)

I'd heard a lot about  these and so I really wanted to give them a go. 

Cover Reveals

Crossed by Ally Condie 
The Blurb: In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake. Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again.

Release date is November 2011. Cover release for the second book in the Matched series Personally, I really like it the cover. It's quiet attractive and completely matches the first book Matched. I love how they use the white and add the hint of blue. What do you all think?

 Hollowland by Amanda Hocking. 
The Blurb: Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

This book is actually already released, so you guys can purchase it from Amazon straight away. All the publishers have done is re-design the cover. The cover on the left is the old one and the cover on the right is the new one. I think the new one is so much better - it's improved so much. Which one do you prefer? 

As soon as we get some more cover reveals we will you update you as soon as we can. :) 

Working on the blog. 

As you all know, Jess & I have been adding several things to the blog. Over the last week or so we have added the following:

Subscription Mail, Guestbook, Our first giveaway & More Reviews

If there is anything you would like to see on our blog, then feel free to email us and let us know. 
Don't forget to say Hi to us every now and then as we love talking to you all.
