What I Got #25 Happy Easter!

What I Got is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Monica over at Cover Analysis :) 
So...I haven't done a What I Got post in...well, FOREVER. There are going to be a lot of books here. I am 100% sure I've missed some books here. There have been some books I've gotten that I'm NOT listing here. Why? Because I either a) forgot them, or b) didn't remember them until after I made the post and was too lazt to go back and add them.
But from this week on, I'll post every week(ish) and won't miss a bunch of books! So that's a plus.
Also, I'm not linking anything. Because linking all of these books and stuff would take FOREVER. And there's a Walking Dead marathon on and I want to get to watching that. So...yeah.
The Collector (Dante Walker, #1) This Is What Happy Looks Like Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1) Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)
Things I Can't Forget (Hundred Oaks, #3) My Favorite Mistake (My Favorite Mistake, #1) If He Had Been With Me True Love Story
All right...I have no idea where to start right now...
Right now, we're talking birthday gifts. Because we all remember that my birthday was February 12, riiiight.
From Jessirae (so far):
My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea Cameron
Jessirae is a wonderful person and I cannot WAIT to get to this book. Every time I pass it on my Kindle, my finger seriously twitches. Someday soon I'll sit down and read this one. THANKS, JL! <3
From Jana:
Touch by Jus Accardo
I told Jana that this book looked really good and I wanted to read it, so she sent it to me for my birthday. ISN'T SHE FANTASTIC? Thanks, Jana!
From Monica:
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu
Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Did I mention that the copy of Daimon is signed? Because IT IS! Y'all know how much I adore JLA, right? EEEP! Thank you so much, Monica!!
From Vicki:
The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
I have no words for this. None. So I'm just going to say THANKS A MILLION, VIX!!!!!! And move on. Because words are not enough here.
--Now we're on to REGULAR gifts, ones that were not birthday related--
Call The Shots by Don Calame
My librarian gave me this because she's awesome. That is all.
--Oh, hey! Now we should move on to library books--
Legend by Marie Lu
I met her at Breathless Reads and with the way she was talking about this book, I KNEW I had to read it ASAP. So now I'm the first person to check it out of the school library ;)
Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt
This is another one I'm the first to check out. I've been grabby hands for this book for a while so I'm SO GLAD I'll get to read it now! This book was either the first or second Waiting On Wednesday I ever did. That's a big deal.
The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
This is this year's Read It Forward at our school. So I'm readin' it.
Origin by Jessica Khoury
Remember when I said I was at Breathless Reads? Well, I got this book (and got it signed) there, too!
The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
This book was released on my birthday. I bought it at the beginning of March. I started it, but haven't had time to finish it yet. I need to seriously prepare myself for all the Sydrian feels!
For Review:
From ARCycling:
Hand Me Down by Melanie Thorne
Um. Yeah. I love the cover of this! And I have not read it yet.
From PYR:
Lightbringer & Reaper by K.D. McEntire
Fair Coin & Quantam Coin by E.C. Myers
Earth Girl by Janet Edwards
These are all books I can't wait to get started on! Thanks so much to PYR!!
From Spencer Hill Press:
Call of the Jersey Devil by Aurelio Voltaire
Spence City's first book! I'm so glad to have an ARC of this. Thank you, SHP!
For Blog Tour:
The Kings of Charleston by Kat H. Clayton
I want so bad to read this book, but I haven't had time yet. Grrr. I will make time. Soon.
The Collector by Victoria Scott
Um. Yeah. WHO WANTS TO GUESS HOW MUCH CREAMING THERE WAS WHEN THIS LANDED IN MY INBOX?!?!?!?! Goodness gracious, this completes my life, guys. It really does. My review will go up this week, but I'm telling you now: This book? Phenominal. Read it.
From Scholastic:
The Last Academy by Anne Applegate
I'm on the blog tour for this, so I got an ARC for review. Thank you so much, Scholastic!
From Willow Aster:
True Love Story by Willow Aster
I am STILL stunned that she sent me this book for review. I'm not going to tell you HOW I requested this book, but I'm going to tell you that I never in a million years thought the request would be approved and that I'd get an email the very same day containing this masterpiece of a novel. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Willow. You are a marvelous person.
From Hyperion:
The Rules by Stacey Kade
I requested this book forever ago, because I love Stacey's The Ghost and the Goth trilogy, and was completely surprised (albeit pleasantly) when this book landed in my mailbox. Thank you so much, Hyperion!
From NetGalley:
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
I've read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and that book is fantastic. So obviously I'm ecstatic I get to read Jennifer's next book. Plus, the description makes me freaking drool. Eeep!
Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker
Thank goodness I got approved for this one. I'm currently reading it and Trent is making me swoon. BIG TIME. Oh, sweet baby Jesus, there are no words for this. My heart explodes, people. Also, is it just me, or is the original cover a million times better than this one? Sorry, but it's true.
Dare You To by Katie McGarry
If you follow me on Twitter, you saw that I was flipping out over getting approved for this. Heck, I STILL am. I loved PtL and flail at the thought of this book on my Kindle right now. I AM SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally
This is another one I flail about. I lovelovelove Miranda Kenneally. Her stories are so great.
If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin
SO. SAD. The thing about this book is that we KNOW he's going to die. It says it in the description and everything. I've gone into this book at least ten times since downloading it and my heart still can't take it yet. When I can deal, though, this book is going to be magnificent. I can feel it. It's an emotional one. Where I already know my boy's going to die. Awww, crap. SADNESS.
OHMYGOSH, GUYS. I've finally made it to the end of this. If I were to tell you how long it's taken me to make this post, I doubt you'd believe me. Let's just say it's taken me A WHILE. So I'm glad to be done. And, ha, I'm thinking of at least six books that I KNOW I've gotten that I didn't list. Oh, well. This is a big enough haul. Then again, it is, like, a month and a half worth of bookish goodness.
So, tell me: What did you get this week? Tell me in the comments.
Or leave a link. I'll take a look!
Also: Have you read anything I got? What'd you think? What should I read next?
Seriosuly. What should I read next? I have no clue.
Have a great day and all that jazz ;)


  1. WOOOOOOW! So much awesome in this haul, for seriosuly JB! UGH. I suck so much because I STILL HAVE THE REST OF YOUR GIFT. I know, I totally fail. The good PO has been closed and yep. You will get it though. You will. If it's the last thing I freaking do. Anywho, I just finished The Collector last night and it was AMAZEBALLS. I lurved it. It's funny how I gifted you My Favorite Mistake and yet, I haven't even bought that for myself yet. LOL. ANd OMG, I really want to read True Love Story! I saw that on GR and was like: MUST HAVE! -- I'm really excited to dive into Dare You To and Ten Tiny Breaths. I hope you enjoy Glitch, Send Me a Sign, and The Vincent Boys! I enjoyed those books! Especially Send Me A Sign. Both boys in that book is droolworthy! Anyway, enjoy enjoy enjoy! I heart you time a billion and three <33

  2. so many awesome books, I have recently become a fan of Miranda Keneally and I can't wait to read her new book!

    Kristin @ Young Adult Book Haven
