I totally forgot to mention these books in my last haul. I won the e-books Grimm Diaries Prequel 1 – 6 by Cameron Jace in a giveaway. He also accidently sent me I am alive. I’m very excited about the Grimm books, they sound good.What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?
Warning: these Grimm Prequels are like snap shots of a magical land you're about to visit soon. I like to think of them as poisoned apples. Once you taste them, you will never see fairy tales in the same light again. This Grimm Diaries Prequels are a number of short books in the form of epistolary diary entries. The diaries are more of teasers for the upcoming series: The Grimm Diaries, allowing you to get a glimpse of what to expect of the series. The 6 diaries are told by The Evil Queen, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, the Devil, Prince Charming, and Alice Grimm.
Every girl dies - not every girl really lives.
Sixteen-year-old Decca Tenderstone feels captivated when she meets gorgeous and reckless Leo, who is arrogant, silent, beautiful, and shoots almost every one he meets. They live in a dystopian future in Los Angeles where every sixteen-year-old is ranked on a scale from one to ten to determine their future. Outranks, who are considered a danger to society, are forced to attend the Monster Show, a brutal sacrificing ritual that is broadcasted worldwide on live TV, where rebellious teens are labelled Bad Kidz or Monsters and get to fight for their lives in deadly games. To prove that you're still alive you have to scream I Am Alive every six hours. Lower your voice, and you're dead. Decca doesn't need Leo's company. She has a secret of her own. While they both can't stand each other, she will find out why she doesn't fit into any rank. Nothing will stand in her way as she has to make choices concerning love, life, staying alive, growing up, and finding out who she really is.
I was strong enough to stay away from Netgalley, so I didn’t request any new books. I did find two great deals; 5.38 USD (4 euro) for The graveyard book and Smoke and Mirrors from Neil Gaiman.
These are the Dutch editions I got. I love these covers! I have now six of his books in this edition and they look so pretty on the shelves.
The red/brownish one is The graveyard book and the blue/greenish one is Smoke and mirrors.
I’m now waiting before I order my books from TBD, because I’m going to a book fair next week. I can’t wait! I’m also excited to order some books, because I want The fairest beauty from Melanie Dickerson :D
That’s my haul this week. Leave a link to your haul!
