Book Haul #31


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

Well, this was going to be my last big splurge before starting the great book buying ban of 2013 and commencing Operation TBR but it didn't happen! Newly revised plans are to start the ban on July 7th, one last splurge next weekend whilst I'm away and Operation TBR will start as soon as I've finished this current batch of library books :)

Bought

In The After - Demtria Lunetta

Another Faust - Daniel & Dina Nayeri

Poison Apples - Lily Archer




Bought - Kindle

Living In The Dark - Rebekah Campbell
 Netgalley



Autumn - Sierra Dean



Won

Zombie Cat: Tale of a Decomposing Kitty - Isabel Atherton & Bethany Straker
Not a bad week, I managed to get Poison Apples, which has been on my wishlist for a long time, in a quirky bookshop near my sister's and Another Faust only cost me $1.50/£1 in a charity shop, not that I went in looking for books! It was meant to be a hunt for glass vases for flowers for a friends wedding.... A huge thanks to the lovely Kate for Zombie Cat, I won a copy on her blog and she has a picture book coming out in 2015 called Pierre the French Bulldog Recycles also illustrated by Bethany Straker. Zombie Cat is hilarious and in no way meant to be a picture book for children! I'm putting my copy away for double trouble to read when they're older.

What did you get this week?
