Buried in Books!

Buried in Books
I seem to have gone a little crazy again this month >.>. I requested a number of books from Netgalley and figured that I’d get about half. Turns out the publishers were in a good mood since I got accepted for a lot more than expected! Good thing I just turned in my last paper for the semester and so I’m freeeeee. And by free I mean that I need to spend half the day doing research at least (probably more if my adviser is asked) but I don’t have crazy deadlines bearing down on me. I’m going to be spending a fair amount of time reading all of these awesome books before diving into hardcore summer work mode ;-).


Some Quiet Place School Spirits Shadows of the Realm Gameboard of the Gods Through the Door

I actually got approved for Gameboard of the Gods a while ago, I just haven’t posted about my Netgalley books for a while >.>. In any case, I’m currently reading School Spirits and loving it, so watch for that review in a week or so. I’m also super pumped for Some Quiet Place because it sounds like an awesome premise :D. A big thank you to all the publishers and Netgalley for these!


Clockwork Princess

Also, Simon and Schuster Audio has been awesome and sent me the audiobook of Clockwork Princess so that I can review it as soon as I finish listening to Clockwork Prince. Thank you!!!

What did you get this week? Any votes on which Netgalley book I should read next??

Anya from On Starships and Dragonwings Happy Reading!

  1. Ooh that Richelle Mead one is out on Netgalley already? Nice! I’m curious how that will be :)
    I’m not big on audio books but I’ve been wanting to check out Clockwork Prince actually (because Ed Westwick narrates it.. lol)

    Great haul! Sorry for the delay in responding.. been a busy week. Thanks for stopping by my StS last week! :)

    • Indeed! I was able to snag it pretty early actually and just kept putting it off for more urgent deadlines D: Just finished it though and I really liked it!

  2. What an exciting haul :D I am SO curious about Some Quiet Place & School Spirits (which I am currently reading now…though I didn’t know it was a spinoff series of Hex Hall and am now hoping you don’t NEED to have read Hex Hall o.O) Gameboard of the Gods should be my next read after that. Eeep, I’m eager to compare notes of all of those! Shadow of the Realm looks great too, congrats on all these Anya – Enjoy ♥

    • Definitely didn’t need to have read Hex Hall as you’ve probably realized already ;-) But now I need to read Hex Hall because it sounds like so much fun!

    I just heard about School Spirits today – it was in an email Goodreads sent me. Sounds like a really awesome one to read! I’ve got Gameboard of the Gods as well…I hope it’s good. I didn’t realize it wasn’t YA! Enjoy your reads!

  4. School Spirits looks like such a fun read! I have Shadows of the Realm and Gameboard of the Gods but have yet to read them. Enjoy! New Follower:)
    Here are my newest additions

  5. Courtney N. says:

    Shadows of the Realm sounds AWESOME. Enjoy your haul!

  6. Such delicious books! Enjoy them!

  7. Jenn @ A Glo-Worm Reads says:

    Gameboard of the Gods is pretty good, I really liked it! But, Shadows of the Realm looks quite good as well! I almost requested it, but I’m not going to request books anymore, I have too many I bought that I need to read first!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my stacks
    I have the Richelle Mead book as well so I’ll be looking forward to seeing your review on it
    btw LOVE the dragon!

    • Thanks for stopping by here as well :D Hehe, I love the dragon too, favorite part of the design lol!

  9. So much awesome! i’m excited to start reading Gameboard of the Gods. I love Richelle Mead! Enjoy all the books that you got this week! Thanks for sharing and happy reading!!

    Our STS this week
    MaryAnn | Chapter by Chapter

    • Yey! I actually haven’t read any Richelle Mead before so this has been an awesome introduction, haha

  10. Can’t wait to get stuck into GOTG, I started it weeks ago and took a break. Really enjoying it so far tho!

    • Yey! I’m about 15% in and am getting quite intrigued. It’s such a cool set of cultures so far :D

  11. annettesbookspot says:

    I haven’t read any of those, but I have Some Quiet Place and School Spirits that I intend to read soon. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting.

  12. I got Some Quiet Place and Gameboard of the Gods several months ago – I am confident that you will like them! Hope you enjoy all of your books! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • Yey, excellent to hear!! I had a DNF last week, so it’s good to know I’m going to have a couple of great books to read!

  13. Some Quite Place! Love the cover and the story sounds really interesting.

    • Agreed on both counts! I have to keep resisting starting it right away since I have early books to review first, haha

  14. That’s a good looking haul of books! Happy reading.

  15. Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews says:

    Woo hoo you got some awesome books :D I requested Some Quiet Place a while back but got rejected xP ah well :) Heard School Spirits and Gameboard of the Gods are both great books, happy reading!

    • Oh no! I’m sorry D: It seems like whether they accept or reject is kinda random sometimes, haha

  16. I’m really looking forward to Some Quiet Place! It sounds so interesting. I read Gameboard of the Gods the other day, and it’s amazing! Thanks for stopping by :)

    • Yey, I’m so glad you liked Gameboard of the Gods! It’s longer than the books I’ve been reading lately, but as long as it rocks :D

  17. Awesome Haul, yay for C.Princess. I hope you like it, it will be cool to compare thoughts. Thanks for stopping by my STS.

  18. I really like the cover of Some Quiet Place. I need to read the Hex Hall series. Happy reading!

  19. Some Quiet Place looks so creepy and cool! I can’t wait for it to come out – congrats on getting to read it early! Thanks for stopping by my StS. :)

  20. I’m super interested in Some Quiet Place. And, of course Clockwork Princess. I really want to read it, but I’m putting it off because I don’t want the series to end. Haha.

  21. Gameboard of the Gods does look good! :D Happy reading!

  22. I have Gameboard of the Gods, too, but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I wanted School Spirits, but it’s been pending for 2 weeks, so I’m not too optimistic about it.

  23. Nice haul! Gameboard of the Gods looks interesting (love the cover)! You’re lucky you are getting some free time. For me, it’s kind of just study, study, study. Can’t wait for the summer!

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog! :)

  24. Yay to NetGalley and the end of semesters. I’m excited for Gameboard of the Gods and School Spirits.
    New follower via Bloglovin. Your blog is so cute.
    My StS @Natflix&Books

  25. I got School Spirits, it sounds great fun.
    Happy reading.

  26. Oooh, I really want to read School Spirits! Might have to try and get that from NetGalley myself! Happy reading :)

  27. Hannah @ Once Upon A Time says:

    Uh… I’ve requested and been accepted for an embarrassing amount of books in the past week. *blush* The way I figure? At least they aren’t wasting money if I don’t get around to them. D: I will do my best to get through a few though. Despite my MASSIVE shelf on Goodreads, I’ve actually never successfully read an egalley.

    • Whew, I’m not the only one! You’ve never read an egalley? What has been the problem in the past?

  28. Nice collection of books! I got Gameboard of the Gods, too, but not School Spirits. And I’m loaded up with ARCs also. You should check out the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge that Kimba has over at The Caffeinated Reviewer.

    • Yes, I’ve been seeing that around! I’m probably going to end up participating whether purposefully or not, haha

  29. I love the cover for Some Quiet Place. I have Gameboard of the Gods too but keep forgettign about it. Trying to get a bit caught up with egalleys at the mo.

  30. Oooh, so many awesome books! Looking forward to your review for School Spirits. I’ll be listening to the Infernal Devices series on audiobook soon. (As soon as I finish this final Wheel of Time book!)

  31. Gameboards of the Gods looks awesome!

  32. Some Quiet Place!

  33. Nice haul! Gameboard of the Gods looks quite interesting. I think I requested that one from them but got turned down. Oh well, I’ll just have to be patient and wait for your review to see what it’s like. :)

    • Hehe, according to my Kindle dots, it looks freaking long D: Hopefully it’s amazing and I speed read all the way through ;-)

      • It’s kind of amazing how sometimes a good book can be insanely long and yet you can just tear right through it in a short period of time because it’s THAT good! I love it when that happens.
