Book Haul #66


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!

Don't fall over but I think this might be one of my smallest book hauls ever... I'm not sure what happened - I somehow managed to buy only one physical copy of a book this week, not bad but as I actually already own a copy but can't find it I probably shouldn't have bothered! It's for a good cause though, the fabulous Mrs Markham and I are doing a buddy read/re-read of the entire Dark Tower series by Stephen King, if this interests you by the way feel free to join in - we'll mostly be chatting the series up on Twitter so we can annoy worship maybe get a retweet from the man himself! The others were pre-orders (one of which I'd completely forgotten I'd paid for months ago) and a Kindle bargain after my sister said I had to read it! Probably just as well because I did treat myself to something else un-bookish (sort of) :)

Bought

The Assassin's Blade - Sarah J Maas

Half Bad - Sally Green

The Gunslinger - Stephen King

Kindle Bargain

The Storyteller - Jodi Picoult

Kindle Pre-Order

Gilded - Christina Farley

Review - Netgalley

Chasing Stars - Helen Douglas
I was going to try & stay away from Netgalley/Edelweiss for a while as I'm drowning under review copies again but given how much I loved After Eden it would have been rude not to request Chasing Stars, thanks for approving me Bloomsbury!

Bought - Bookish but not a book

Game of Thrones S3 DVD
I wanted this blu-ray version but wasn't about to pay a silly amount of money for five discs, it is pretty though... Also not quite sure how it would fit on the shelf!

  3. Great haul! I loved The Walking Dead deluxe cd set this past year, that was the Governor's aquarium thing, but who can afford to spend money on that.
