Book Haul (13)

Book Haul is a weekly feature here at The Non Reluctant Reader that showcases all the awesome goodies I got this week!
So this week was the week of my birthday, and I am FINALLY A TEENAGER! So some of my friends gave me books for my birthday, and they're the ones I love the most :P I also got a $75 gift card which will undoubtedly be used on books!  Anyway, here's what I got:
My hamster, Tris, inspects this week's haul. 
For Review:
The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
I am going to be hosting a stop on this book's book tour on the 19th and am excited for that! I haven't read the first book in this series, The Girl of Fire and Thorns but I need to soon so I can be ready to read this one for the blog tour!
Skyship Academy by Nick James
This book is from a local author and the new one comes out this month so I really need to get around to reading this one. It seems like a cross between steampunk and dystopian!
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
This is one of those books that have been on my radar for a million years and I really need to start this series, so I put it on my birthday wishlist and look forward to reading it soon.
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
Now I have the second book too! :)
The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
I have been pining for this book for so long and it looks incredible! Sort of a dystopian "escape from Alcatraz"! 
What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
This looks really unique and cool! I can't wait to dive into it!
So that's what I got this week! What did you get? Let me know in the comments! 


  1. Happy birthday! The Forsaken is on the top of my wishlist right now. :) And your hamster, Tris, is adorable! Enjoy your books!

    I really loved the Nightshade series so I hope you enjoy Nightshade and Wolfsbane and I seriously hope you become Team Ren! lol. I really want to read Forsaken and What's Left of Me! They sounds really good. I have Girl of Fire and Thorns (I think that's what it's called, sorry if I am) and I've heard amazing things about it, but I haven't read it! I might just wait until I can get Crown of Embers! Anyway, I hope you enjoy all these awesome books! And again, happy birthday!
