Books or Bust #8

Books or Bust! is my way of sharing my week's giveaway wins, purchases, NetGalley books, etc.

I am linking up with Vicki @ Books, Biscuits, & Tea for her Showcase Sunday and Tynga @ Tynga's Reviews for her Stacking the Shelves.


{Purchases}
I was so excited this week for Insurgent by Veronica Roth to come out. I pre-ordered it back in March and it finally got here on Thursday! I will admit that I tried to start it, but realized my brain needs a little Divergent refresher course. So I'm gonna reread it here in the next few days.

On my Kindle, I purchased...
 The Selection (The Selection, #1) Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse, #12)


{NetGalley} 
I was approved for these titles this week. I'm currently working on reading The Peculiars and cooking out of two of the cookbooks I received over the last two weeks :)
 Timepiece (Hourglass, #2) Hot Sauce! Taste of Home: Cooking School Cookbook: 400 + Simple to Spectacular Recipes 

I'm really incredibly excited about the middle one because I have recently become a buffalo sauce fiend and I would love to make my own hot sauces. :)

Yay for Insurgent. Mine came on Wednesday and I still haven't had time to read it.

Love NetGalley.

And I am obsessed with hot sauces too! Let me know if you find any great recipes!

I can't wait to get Timepiece as I really loved Hourglass. I got Insurgent this week and The Selection as well. I need to get my hands on Deadlocked too!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just got Divergent so I can be cool too :)

Super jealous of the books you got this week. I really need to pick up Deadlocked (but it's kind of hard when I'm still enforcing my buying ban until my tbr pile slims down). Definitely looking forward to reviews. As for cookbooks, I get all of my recipes off of Pinterest (it's a huge addiction for me). Happy reading!

Thanks for visiting my haul.

I had the same problem but after reading the summary Veronica posted on her blog, everything came back to me. :D

Nice haul there.

I'm currently one of those masses who are currently reading Insurgent.

I'm a little slow with starting Insurgent - only 4 chapters in! That's just me being incompetent, though, since I read Divergent for the first time only last month. Happy reading! ♥

Giselle said...

Yay Insurgent! I'm reading it now and it rocks! I want to try that last Sookie book but I hear it sucks.

I hope you can make some nice dishes out of those books! :)

And I stil need to read Divergent, but I hear amazing things about Insurgent. So happy reading!
