New Books On My Shelf #57 Frankfurt Book Fair edition & Giveaway

I'm not sure if I can believe how many books I have brought with me from Frankfurt to feature in this week's New Books On My Shelf post. Unbelieveable forty-six! I spent Saturday and Sunday in Frankfurt and went to the fair both days. The German publisher hall was too crowded for my taste, but I really enjoyed being around all kinds of international publishers.

Although I brought my camera with me, I didn't take any pictures of the Book Fair at all. Must've been surrounded by too many bookish distractions... So here are all the books I've got. Partly bought, the other half for free.

I had a nice chat with the lady at the Harlequin booth, Reka. And obviously we were both huge fans of Julie Kagawa and her books. There's just no way round talking about THE IRON FEY series if you are talking fabulous books. I'm also very excited for INVISIBILITY by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan. Planning to start it tomorrow right after uni.
