“I have to say that although it broke my heart, I was, and still am, glad I was there.” ― Markus Zusak

 

So for  the longest time i have heard about a book series called Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I just could never afford to pick up the whole set at one time with everything going on lately. So I was elated when i won the entire series in a giveaway. As soon as they were delivered wireless to my email i put them on the kindle. I started reading the first book right away and was sucked in!

As i got further into the book i was a little thrown off because there were some spelling errors EVERYWHERE, but i thought, yeah this is weird but ill keep going. It wasn’t until the second book that i noticed something really weird…

If you haven’t already put it together, the quote i used for the headline is from The Book Thief and when i found out that i had received PIRATED COPIES of a book that i was so excited about, it broke my heart. I will not finish this series with the copies that i have because i feel like i am committing some huge crime for receiving stolen goods!

I have reported the person i got them from and then messaged them to explain that whether they believe so or not, piraters, like themselves are the reason books these days cost so much! Our favorite, least favorite and authors everywhere spend their HARD work and money in their work and how is that fair to them or their families to steal the food out of their families mouths.

To all of you wonderful bookworms, please take caution in where you get your books from! Support our lovely authors and don’t buy or pirate books for your leisure time enjoyment!

  1. This is horrible! I’ve never even heard of this happening 😦 I’ve been meaning to pick up this series as well hopefully I get to cross them off my TBR list this year. Sorry for this happening to you and in a competition as well, some people are just plain evil! I’d be so shattered. Hopefully you get the real versions soon and are able to enjoy them 🙂

  2. This is great. I’m so glad you brought attention to something like this. I can’t believe someone did that. Every time I hear about people pirating books it really breaks my heart. After all that heart work and effort this is what they have to deal with. It’s ridiculous. Another great post. Glad to see you posting again :). It’s always great.
