Book Haul #23: Short and Sweet

Posted June 11, 2015 by Debby in Book Hauls / 4 Comments

It’s been more than a month, so it’s time for another book haul! It’s decently short because I restrained myself immensely from buying books while I was unemployed. (So, yeah, you can probably expect a bigger haul next month.) But I only bought the books I was really excited and desperate for, so I’m very very happy with this haul, and especially with the generosity of friends and publishers 🙂

Purchased

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West: Kasie West is one of my all-time favorite auto-buy authors, so this should surprise no one. I had this pre-ordered since about February, soooo yeah. I already read it too, and I loved it. My review will be up soon – but basically, it’s super cute fake dating shenanigans with a surprisingly deep story about the social media generation.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: SOON.

Won

Uprooted by Naomi Novik: This one’s been RAVED about by very trusted friends of mine, and I’m pretty sure it has everything I like – fairy tales, dragons, a strong heroine and a hate-to-love romance. Really hope I can fit this one in this summer! Thank you so much to Mel for hosting that amazing giveaway!

Gifted

End of Days by Susan Ee: Thank you forever to Dahlia for this super lovely book!! I can’t believe this series is ending. I’m hoping to fit in a series binge this month or next. I’m scared, tbqh.

Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross: PROOF THAT CHRISTINA IS THE SWEETEST EVER. Knowing I was down about my unemployment, she sent a fluff care package ♥ Even though the surprise was ruined because of TBD’s agonizingly slow shipping (and I think the package had an odd detour to the US), I’m so flattered and grateful and happy and excited and YAY. Definitely reading this this summer.

For Review

Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally: FINALLY I HAS THE PRECIOUS. I was in Edelweiss AND NetGalley limbo for ages, but then I got approved on NetGalley AND I ended up on the blog tour. But anyway, you know how much I love Miranda Kenneally, but this one ALSO features a country music artist as a love interest. Hell. Yes.

Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell: THE PRETTIEST COVER OF ALL TIME. I gather this is a fairy tale retelling of some kind with some steampunk-ish elements. But whatever, I saw that cover and I needed it in my life. #shallowasfuck

Tangled Webs by Lee Bross: I just read this one and… Eh. It is NOT good. It’s almost *painfully* boring. My review will be up next week.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray: THE OTHER PRECIOUSSSSS. The Diviners was ace, so yeah, I am incredibly excited to read this one. It puzzles me that they redesigned the redesigned cover, but uhhh… okay. I guess this is better than the previous one, but also can we not just go back to matching the original The Diviners cover? *cries*

  1. I haven’t read any of Kasie West’s books but she’s a favorite among many bloggers! I’ve heard really great (or not so great) things about Sarah’s book but just the fact that it’s a beauty & the beast retelling has me wanting to pick it up.

    Overall, your haul looks amazing and I hope that all the books are fun for you 😀

  2. You got a lot of quality over quantity this week! I’m thrilled you have Uprooted – I really hope it goes well for you. I have it here, but because I fell so far behind due to vacation, it is going to take a while to pick it up.
