On My New Arrivals Shelf (1)

As most of you may already know, there's been some serious drama in the blogosphere in the last week. Many have weighed in on it, and I've commented in just a couple of places. Mostly, though, I just don't want to take part in any of it. The only real change to what I've been doing is that I will not be participating in the IMM meme hosted by The Story Siren anymore, but I'll still show you what I got in this week, because I approve of any chance to admire books. :)

I considered just stopping with these posts, but I do like having the chance to thank people, since I might not always get the chance to read a book immediately, because there are so many. I might join another linkup at some point, but this is what I'm doing for now at least.

Pretty New Books:
I didn't actually receive any books specifically for review this week, but I did get some lovely things in anyway. *snuggles with books*

Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver (Won from Pitch Dark Days, Signed)
Purity - Jackson Pearce (Purchased at Launch Party, Signed)
The Homecoming of Samuel Lake - Jenny Wingfield (Won in Secret Read Giveaway - Actually, they sent me two of these, so there will be a giveaway!)

Goodwill Haul:
This second set, actually shown on my little bookshelf where I store new arrivals, is all from one epic Goodwill trip. Super excited about finding Sisters Red, since I stumbled across an ARC of Sweetly last week.

Wow, Goodwill had some great books! Also, while I liked Masque of the Red Death, it was one of those books for me that was awesome for the first half, then fell short as the plot needed to resolve.

And I'm in total agreement about wanting to stay out of the drama. I said a bit more about it on my blog post today.

Your Goodwill is amazing! We rarely find books that good in ours (and my husband LOVES Terry Goodkind.)
