Have You Seen This??? Part 2

The wonderful ladies, Andi (Andi's ABCs) and Brittany (The Book Addict's Guide) have come up with a brilliant way to share and help our book obsessions and collections!!! 
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS is a new feature for those of us searching hard-to-find editions of books, primarily older copies of ARCs, early or foreign editions, etc...

Hosts: Andi (Andi's ABCs) and Brittany (The Book Addict's Guide)
*Updated 3/20/2015*

First, I want to thank Andi and Brittany for putting this together! In the last few weeks I have accumulated so many ARCs to add to my collection - I feel like I'm living in a bookish heaven :)

Next - a huuuge thank you to everyone who has swapped or donated a book to me!
Seriously, booknerds are the bestest people ever!!! They're the only ones who can fully understand what it's like, can relate, and help. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart :)

You can see my original post here and see how much my shelves have grown :)

And now, there are a few ARCs that I am still hoping for.

I love Oliver's writing!
She is one of the first authors!!! I was introduced to her when I first started book blogging. I have so many fond personal memories that are connected to when I read her books.
I've been considering creating a post about this... maybe one day.

Here are the ARCs that I am still looking for
- DELIRIUM Original Hardback

I am a HUGE Stiefvater fan!!! HUGE!!!
Currently, I'm anxiously waiting for my order of LAMENT and BALLAD UK paperback editions to arrive soon. I'm also waiting for my hardcover of THE SCORPIO RACES and the UK paperback edition of it too! These two should arrive by the end of the month. And I hope to be able to place an order for this in the Spanish hardcover soon - I cannot wait to get this edition!!! It's been on my wishlist for forever. And it will also be my first spanish edition book; which is another dream of mine - to have a bookshelf full of my favorite books in spanish :)

Here are the ARCs I am still looking to find
- LAMENT (ARC) and BALLAD (ARC) <- Do these exist?
- LAMENT and BALLAD Hardcovers <- Do these exist?

I'm also looking for:
- International copies of THE SCORPIO RACES!!!
So far, I have ordered the UK paperback AND the Spanish hardcover :)
- International copies of SHIVER!!!
So far, I have ordered the Italian paperback :)

GRACELING is the first fantasy I ever read that I was able to follow, fall into and love!
FIRE and BITTERBLUE are amazing too - I just love Cashore's mystical writing!
I am dying to hear about what she's been working on! I follow her blog as if my whole booknerd existence depended on it, lol! I cannot wait to see something about a new book... anything!!! *begs!!!*

The ARCs I'm still looking for

THIS book broke my heart!!!
And I NEED all the copies!!! This is my latest venture -
and I aim to get all the editions by the end of the year :)
As you can see, my hardcover is already a bit roughed up - it's one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES!!! I have read it numerous times, and often find myself moving it around the house just to have it near me (TMI?)

For now, I'd be super happy to at least get an ARC of TIGER LILY!
BUT, I'm also looking for international copies too :)

If you have any of these and you are willing to let it go, please contact me... (thebumblegirl@rocketmail.com)
I'll be more than happy to work something out with you!!!

Thank you to Andi and Brittany for putting this together!!!
And thank you to all of you who take the time to peek at my list and help me find my long lost loves!!!
