This week I added some books to my shelves but the most exciting thing that I added was a new 3DS XL console!
I haven’t upgraded my DS since the DS Lite model that was several years ago. As soon as I heard Professor Layton versus Phoenix Wright were out, two of my FAVOURITE DS games franchises ever, I had to go and get one!
Red and Black aren’t my ideal colours, I would have preferred the white one but it was the best out of the other colours and the sales person was willing to bargain so why not? I got a great bargain at JB Hifi (did you know you could bargain down the prices there??) and nabbed the last copy of the game on sale at Big W. There’s a pink and white kirby 2DS coming out, but I really don’t like the look of that model.
Here’s my new pretties:
Looks like I’ve got lots of Professor Layton to catch up on!
Now to my books…
Review copies – physical
Thank you to all publishers for sending me these books in exchange for review!
Got another copy of Fire & Flood from Scholastic, so that means I’ll be holding a giveaway for the 2nd copy of the book! International readers, I hear ya so this giveaway will be international! My review & giveaway will go up tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Also received the next in The Last Thirteen series, Nine, I still haven’t read these books yet but with one release a month it’s pretty prolific.
The Year of the Rat is one I haven’t heard of before from Simon & Schuster, I can see the book is available on Netgalley. Anyone read this? It looks like a humourous contemporary.
I bought Eleanor & Park from Book Depository, I have read and loved everything else by her and no doubt I will love this one too. TBD had 10% off some of their best sellers and this was on the list, so the perfect time to pick it up!
Also bought the first 3 Charley Davidson series, a paranomal romance about a Grim Reaper and a part time PI. I’ve had many recommendations from trusted Goodreads friends about this series, especially since I loved the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine. I’ve heard Charley has a wicked sense of humour! These books are $2.99 for a limited time only on Amazon.

Aussie YA Bloggers Group – I don’t know why we haven’t done this before, but Brittany and Kelly had the fantastic idea to set up an Aussie YA Bloggers group on Goodreads! I had no idea there were so many of us out there, and it makes me excited for the possibilities!
PTA Live Brisbane tomorrow – I AM SO EXCITED! I cannot wait to meet you guys and to fangirl over the latest YA releases tomorrow!
Happy International Tabletop Day – Thanks to Geek & Sundry, Tabletop Day is a Thing and I spent all of yesterday playing board games, one of my favourite hobbies. I played Shadows of Camelot (lost to evil), King of Tokyo (lost), Big Bang Theory Party Game (won), Hanabi (won as a group), Incan Gold (lost), For Sale (won). It was a pretty epic day!
I just realised I need to tell you guys about my love of board games.
What did you add to your shelves this week?
