My score:
Stripped of their birthright and shunned by the people of Ashlund, Una and her family are forced to live on the fringe of society as Scavengers. There is no question that her family's bond is strong, but the law of the Authority is stronger...and soon it will come to collect her. After all, the family is on borrowed time already.

When a night of torment and truth reveals well kept secrets, Una takes new freedoms - free from the Authority, her family, and possibly her fate. Pulled between the life she's always known and a world where status and rituals are everything, Una struggles to understand a culture that has rejected all she holds dear.

November Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Oh lord, what an awful reading month this was! Only 4 books... I've been very busy. It's not that I'm in a slump, I'm just swamped with work and private appointments. November is a very busy month as a teacher since that's when I have a chat with all the parents after school time, it takes 2 weeks. Then I have to prepare all the Christmas festivities, so yeah.. Only 4 books this month.
I'm glad that I already completed my Goodreads goal. I plan to read much, much more in December!

I've been having this blog for almost a year. I can't believe it! I'm so excited to announce a one year anniversary giveaway! I'll give more information this January..

For now I'll tell you about this month's ratings, what to expect and my haul, which was awesome this month! I received HARRY POTTER ILLUSTRATED as a birthday present. YAY!

Unboxing: Celebrate Books - Arabian Nights

Today I'm finally doing an Unboxing Post for a bookbox that I LOVE; Celebrate Books.
I have been ordering these book boxes since day one and I have loved every single one. There is usually a hardcover in the box with several awesome bookish goodies (like tote bags and mugs) and bookmarkers. Who doesn't love these goodies?!
I've always wanted to share an Unboxing with you guys, but usually I'm so busy writing reviews... That wasn't the case today, so YAY!
