What I Got #22 ♥ Happy Things!!

What I Got is a weekly meme hosted by Monica over at Cover Analysis :)
This si going to be two weeks worth of books, because last week I HAD to post my review for The Darkest Minds. That book was just too amazing to wait. So, yeah. What I got for the last two weeks!
For Review:
Dracian Legacy by Priya Kanaparti
I JUST finished this last night (Friday night). I had so much fun reading it and I adore the characters! My review will be posted (along with a character interview) on Febryary 16th as part of the blog tour!
The Essence by Kimberly Derting
I got this for review for my post on the blog tour, last Saturday, but I couldn't read it in time, so now I'm going to review it just regular, on the blog! I have not started it yet, but I'm sort of kind of TOTALLY excited about it. Thank you to Simon & Schuster!
Breaking Waves by Danielle Sibarium
I got the first book, Heart Waves, in my last What I Got. I'm currently reading that one, and then I'll read this one, and then I'll be reviewing them both for the blog tour! Thank you to Danielle for sending me this book!! (And the first, as well. Loving it so far!)
Apollyon  by Jennifer L. Armentrout
YESYESYESYESYESYESYES, I got this! This was the book I was upset I didn't get last What I Got. But now I have it and I am soooooo happy. I can't wait to read it! Thank you so, so, SO much to SHP for sending me this book for review!
I got a bunch of gifted stuff this week, so I'm going to break it down by person!
From Dolly, my wonderful best friend from Creative Writing class:
Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This was on so many of my lists. For Christmas, for what I NEED to read in 2013, and so on. So I was SO FLIPPING ECSTATIC when my dear friend Dolly randomly showed up to Creative Writing with this book for me. Apparently, her blog stalking skills are spot-on. Thank you so much, Dolly! I'm so excited to read it!!
From Perez, my big baby of a Physics best friend:
The Original Illustrated Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I have not read anything Sherlock Holmes. EVER. So I'm seriously excited to actually become a cool kid and and read this! Eeeeeeeep! Thaaaaanks, Perez. YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH GIFTS OF THE BOOKISH VARIETY.
From Anna, my super awesome blogging idol who runs Literary Exploration:
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
I've been wanting to read this since it came out last summer. So Anna was nice enough to give me her ARC!! I already read this and it was amazing. There shall be a review sometime ;)
Asunder by Jodi Meadows
Anna is a wonderful person for giving me her ARC of this. I was being whiny on Twitter about how it looked so nice and then she was all like "I'll send it to you." I spazzed. And am still spazzing. Yay!
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
I love this book. I love this book I love this book I love this book. My favorite book out of the eight I've read this year and my favorite non-JLA book, EVER. It is so amazing and I love it so, so, SO much. I cannot wait for the next book. I already posted my review last week, and I heart Anna so. Much. For surprising me with this book.
Thanks a million to Anna for these three books (I've read two and they were great!) and for being so awesome and ahhhhh, so much happiness. :)
From my dear author friend, Priya, who may or may not be one of my favorite people:
Accordance by Shelly Crane
Book 2 in the Significance series! I am incedibly happy and excited to get into this one. I'm just starting it today (Saturday) and I'm all smiley about it!
Defiance by Shelly Crane
Book 3! AHHH! And, this goes for the cover of Accordance, too--Pepe and Sztella! Love.
Independence by Shelly Crane
And book 4. I now own the whole series! Yay! I can't wait to just sit and reeeeeeeead them all! And now I won't have to die at the end of any of them! Hehe.
Losing It by Cora Carmack
I've been in love with this cover for ages. For some reason, it just makes me happy! I think it's the top half of the cover. Anyways, there was that, and then the fact that the description looks like this book is going to be great. Top that all off with the fact that JLA said this was her favorite book of 2012...I wanted this book. And now I have it!! I can't wait to read this one, either.
Thank you so, so, SOSOSOSOSO much, P-Diddio! I'm still happy dancing over this. Mhmm. Yeah. STILL. Super amazing early birthday gifts!
And...I think that's all of What I Got for this week. Or two. Sorry if I forgot anything!
What did YOU get this week?!?! Have you read any of the books I got? Telll meeee!
