Have You Seen This??? (Update!)

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 4/28/2015*

A huge THANK YOU to Brittany and Andi for not only putting this together but continuing it to allow us to easily find what we desperately are looking for :)

And a big thanks to all the wonderful booknerds who have fed my geeky heart! My collections have grown so quick, I am in book heaven :)

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

And now, there are a few more ARCs that I am still hoping to find...

* * * * *

I am a HUGE Stiefvater fan!!! HUGE!!!

I just can't explain just how much I love her writing, her art, and everything about her - she is so unique, inspiring and real. 
Right now, I'm still waiting for my U.S. hardcover of THE SCORPIO RACES and the UK paperback edition of it to arrive! 

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 the UK paperback :)

- International copies of SHIVER!!!
So far, I have the Italian paperback :)

* * * * *

I love Lauren Oliver's writing!

She is one of the first authors I was introduced to 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

* * * * *

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 hoping to order all 3 in the UK paperback editions later this summer :)
May have to consider the German editions too, lol!

The ARCs I'm still looking for

* * * * *

THIS book!!!

I NEED all the copies!!! 
As you can see, my hardcover has been very loved - it's one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES!!!
I read it at least twice a year (I'm going to have to get a back-up soon, lol!)... if you haven't guessed yet, I love everything Peter Pan and have quite a bit of a collection of it too... I believe that there might be another ARC of Tiger Lily with a different cover (UK?) and I'm looking for international copies too :)

* * * * *

My newest obsession!

I need to get the U.S. hardcovers, but I'm also looking for the UK covers too!
I know that I can purchase these - I'm only asking to see if anyone in the U.S. has copies they would like to trade away since my budget is really tight right now :)

* * * * *

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!!!


  1. Hey lady! I've got an ARC of Vanishing Girls that I JUST finished and don't need to keep! :D Hit me up!

  2. You have an ARC of TIGER LILY and I am so jealous!
