Weekly Update (#7)

Hey Everyone, 

Sorry we missed you all last week. With it being Easter weekend & a bank holiday, Jess & I struggled with doing the update. So, we're featuring a double one this week......

How was your Easter? Poor Jess, didn't get any eggs but me I had far to many and all I've eaten all week is CHOCOLATE!! I think I'm a little sick of it now. Lol 

As you can see the Spring Carnival Giveaway is up and running. You have until May 8th to enter. 
Name that Book will be back starting May 9th! So don't forget it check it out. UK/EU only. 
And, our own May giveaway will be coming May 9th too - So LOADS of giveaways for you to enter. 

Anyway..... Here's this this weeks and last weeks updates:

Donna's In My Mailbox

Hey! There's quiet a few books that I've had over the last two weeks. So I'm just going to provide a photo and the links to Goodreads for each book. I could sit and talk about these books all day! I'm excited to read every single one of them.

To review for Chicken House Publishing - Thank you! 

Swapped books with UK Swap Shop on Goodreads. - Thank you Lindsey! 

Won off First Reads. 
I was so excited when I got an email saying I'd won this book. I've wanted to read it for ages but the fact I got a signed book and two bookmarks was amazing. I can't wait to review it. Little message from author saying "Always believe in yourself" I may do a giveaway with this book once I've read it depending on how much I enjoy it but of course, I'll let you all know. 

Kindle books:
 As most of you know I have already read Iron Fey 2 & 3. You can check out my reviews here: The Iron Daughter & The Iron Queen - Both were amazing books! I'd highly recommend them. TEAM ASH!!! 
Oh and Insight was only 70p off Amazon, so I couldn't resist. 

Hope you enjoyed my mailbox this week. What's was in your mailbox this week? Leave me your link below?

Cover change for Hades by Alexandra Adornetto 

Okay guys, we recently posted the cover reveal for Hades by Alexandra Adornetto BUT, since the first cover was revealed it seems to have changed. If you see the photo, the first picture is of what was originally revealed and now the second picture is different. To be honest, we're not quiet sure which one will be the cover design. Lol.
Anyway, which one do you prefer?

Donna:  I love the second cover. Even though the picture is the same, I much prefer the colours. The pinks and reds stand out that much more. 
Jess: I haven't read this book yet, but I'll admit I love the second cover a lot better than the first. Its more dramatic. It just catches my eye a lot more.


That's all for this weeks updates. We hope it was insightful. Don't forget to keep stopping by for our new giveaways that are coming up shortly. Happy reading everyone :)

I really prefer the second one. The first one is too "photoshoped" for me...

Bex said...

Lindsey's Bookshelf said...

i prefer the second :) It isn't as harsh it is a lot softer.

The one on the right is the official version of the cover. Alexandra Adornetto made an official announcement about it through her Twitter account. It's not as beautiful as the first one but still very pretty! :)
