Book Delights is a feature on my blog where I share with you all the books I purchased/received in the previous month. I was on a self imposed book buying ban in July and am pleased to announce that I made it through twenty nine days without buying a book. I cracked and bought one book, but there was only two days of the month to go so I think I did extremely well.
Although I was on a book buying ban, I still got a fair amount of books.
I’ll start with the eARCs thanks to Random House Australia and Bookouture:
Books I won thanks to YA Madness, Speculating On Specfic and Juliet Madison:
Shadow and Bone.
Siege and Storm.
Ruin and Rising.
The Inevitability Of Stars.
Plus some awesome swag from Juliet madison.
I also won an ecopy of The January Wish from Juliet Madison.
I also won the Game Of Thrones box set thanks to High Fantasy Addict/Bookworld:
Game Of Thrones.
I also downloaded the Kindle app on my Tablet so I can read my netgalley ARCs, and I went a bit crazy and downloaded a heap of free books from Amazon. I know I was on a book buying ban but these don’t count because I technically didn’t buy them:
