Geek Chic This Week (6/3/12)

Geek Chic This Week is a feature here at Geek Chic to talk about the books I received this week, whether bought, borrowed, or fallen from the sky! It's inspired by the Story Siren's In My Mailbox. 

Happy June, everyone! I hope you're enjoying the weather warming up! If it is where you are, I mean. It's certainly been warm here, surprisingly so :)

Anyway, on to the books!!


-Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I'm not sure what kind of person/reader this makes me, but I've never read a Jane Austen book. Like, ever. But I've really been wanting to, and a friend of mine is also reading P&P for the first time, so I decided there's no time like the present!

-Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I've heard great things about this book, so why not?

-Tempest by Julie Cross. It's time travel! I love time travel! I already read it, and it was SO, SO GOOD!!!

-Ditched by Robin Mellom. Looks funny, and finally at my library!

-Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Another one finally at my library that I've been dying to read!!

-Taken By Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Oh my. This was so good. Yet it shattered my soul. (HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO ME, JLB?????????) Urgh. I just...I just can't. 


-A Dog's Life by Ann M. Martin. Loaned to me by a friend. I don't know much about it, but it looks cool!!

-Denise by John Benton. Loaned by the same friend :)

-Grief Girl by Erin Vincent. Another loan from that friend. Looks really good!


-City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. COLS!!!! Read my excitement upon getting it HERE!

So what did you get in your mailbox this week? Leave me your book-sharing posts!!



  1. Awesome haul! I really need to get caught up on The Mortal Instrument Series!! Been seeing COLS in a lot of IMM posts. TAKEN BY STORM!!!!! I NEED to get my hands on that book! Oh no what happens?! :O Your comment about the book is making me worried. Like you I've always wanted to read a Jane Austen book but never have. I really need to though! Hope you enjoy all the books you got this week! Happy Reading!

    1. Taken by Storm...I refuse to reveal spoilers. But it made me cry :/ It was good, though, other than that! You should definitely read it ASAP!!

  2. Nice haul! P&P is my favorite Austen book. I've had Ditched forever and can't wait to read it.

    Enjoy all the books!

    1. Cool! I'm looking forward to reading P&P :)

  3. Awesome books, Mag!!! I really want to read Tempest and Cinder as well. Gosh, and OF COURSE, City of Lost Souls!!! I am dying to read that one!!! I am really trying to avoid stumbling across any spoilers for it, but it's so hard. I already know one thing I really did NOT want to know yet. *sigh* Anyway, great haul!!! :D

    Here is my post: StS :)

    1. It was strange that I didn't see many spoilers before I read CoLS (I follow a LOT of TMI/TID blogs on tumblr) but after I read it they were EVERYWHERE on tumblr. Strange!

      Ooh, yikes. I did know a few things beforehand, and I hate accidentally getting spoiled!!

  4. On the Jellicoe Road <3 <3 <3 I really hope you enjoy it, if you find the beginning a bit slow or confusing just keep going ;)

    I'd also like to read Tempest and Ditched!

    1. Okay, I'll make sure to give it a solid chance!!

  5. Oooh, you got Cinder!!! I love that book! I can't wait to hear what you think of it! And I really want to read On the Jellicoe Road! It sounds so good! Happy reading!

    1. Cinder looks AWESOME! I can't wait to read it :)
