This week was ...... amazing, no other words to describe it really other than simply amazing. First of all last Sunday I got to meet one of my favourite authors Abbi Glines and recieved several free signed books, then on monday (not book related) I was voted to be the new president of my university cheer team and then saving the best till last, on Tuesday I was mentioned in an article in USA today. USA today!!!!! (sorry punctuation police but just one exclamation mark does not do my excitement justice) I'm not even from the US and I have heard of that! It's an article about New Adult books and it mentions the NA book club at the end along with a few quotes from me. If you want you can check out the online version here. I really want to get a copy sent from America so I can keep it forever :) This is generally just a fantastic article about NA books that actually seems to understand what they are and explains them very well.
On to the books I recieved :)
Abbi Glines event
The Vincent Boys, The Vincent Brothers, Because Of Low, While It Lasts and Just For Now all signed and personalised to me! I also took along with me an extra copy of The Vincent Boys to get signed so I could give it away. Keep your eyes out for that soon. Thank you to both Simon and Schuster UK and Hot Key books for the event and free books :)
Im trying to not get as many books from netgalley as sometimes the formatting is a little off making it near impossible to read but sometimes there are books I want so badly that I can't wait for the perfectly formated ebooks to release. I got two amazing books this week (that are luckily well formatted :P).
The Selection may not be loved by everyone but it was certainly loved by me. I have been waiting for The Elite ever since and I had been checking netgalley daily for the past 3 weeks as I heard it was going on there. This has already been read and was good though not as good as the first, I now need the final book. Right now :P

I first fell in love with Samantha Young's writing when I read her older YA series The Tale of Lunamorte. I have read and loved all her books so am really excited for another, especially one that is NA though she is also a truly fantastic YA writer.
|The Stillness of You|
This is an amazing sounding NA contemporary romance. A huge thank you to Julie for donating so many copies to the NA book club for people to review and also giving me an extra copy. Here's hoping everyone loves it :)
This sounds incredibly funny, interesting and certainly different to most romances I have read in the past!
Thank you to ebury for the review copy :)
It doesn't really count because I haven't recieved it yet but I pre-ordered Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams. This is the first time I have EVER pre-ordered a book but I adore this authors writing! There aren't many books I have loved more than Taking Chances, if you want to read my somewhat gushing review you can do so here.
I found that a YA author Alexia Purdy was giving away several of her books for free over amazon and they all sound good so I decided to download them. Hopefully these will be the start of some new series's that I will love. I also found a freebie from an author already love and another who is a complete unknown to me.
|Reign Of Blood|
|Never Say Such Things|
|Awakening the Nightmare|
|The Madman's Daughter|
I have heard lots of great things about this book so I am very excited to have won a copy.
So What are your thoughts? Have you read or plan to read any of these books? Feel free to link to your own Stacking the shelves or similar posts in the comments :)
