new on my bookshelf!

Folks, today I ventured outside for you to bring you this new-on-my-bookshelf post.
It was really sunny and warm out, but I really wanted to take these snapshots in front of my favourite plant in our garden (bar the fruit trees, lemon & fig in particular). 
I hope you enjoy! 

BEAUTY by Robin McKinley (1978)
A retelling of the story of Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney film. I heard wonderful things about this book and decided that I needed to get my hands on more fairytale retellings, so I ordered it off the Book Dep!
Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to read it very soon because my reading load for uni is pretty epic as it is, so leisurely reading will be reduced enormously. :(

THE LOVER'S DICTIONARY by David Levithan (2011)
I already mentioned this in my post about the Perth Writers Festival, which is where/when I bought this one. 
It's signed, new, beautiful and I can't wait to read it.

WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON by John Green & David Levithan (2010)
The only thing that would make this book even better is John Green's personalised signature in there too! But I'm pretty satisfied with the way it is for now. ;) See this post to find out what David wrote inside!

TOUCH OF POWER by Maria V. Snyder (2012)
I won this in a competition and was pretty stoked about it because I don't really enter very many blog giveaways (however I used to be a giveaway-entering maniac back in the day). I haven't really heard of the author before but the book sounds exciting even though I don't understand what they were trying to do with the cover model's hair.
