Book Haul #76

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews where we can share what new books we've picked up this past week be they bought, borrowed or downloaded. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

I really didn't mean to buy anything this week but I had a few 'slip-ups', I'm meant to be saving all my money for the fun I'm going to have at LFCC/YALC in July where I know there's going to be so much I want and I'll be mad with myself if I don't have the money! It's not too bad though, I had a gift certificate which covered the cost of two books (one of which, Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge, I had to buy, she's going to be at LFCC and I would love her to sign my books!) and the books I bought on my Kindle were cheap (as in 36p/21 cents for Among the Thorns, I know I could read it for free on Tor's website but I love that cover so had to buy it!) or free - the prequel for Skylar Dorset's faery novel, The Girl Who Never Was, out in June. And eeek! I got approved for The Girls At The Kingfisher Club, which is a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, set in the Roaring Twenties, and they're flappers!

    1. Oops??? Honestly, that's one of the nicest things to say, although I am sorry if it makes your TBR even more unmanageble! I love going to blogs and adding everything to my TBR, I frequently do it with your's too :)

    1. I'm reading Glaze this afternoon and I can't wait to start it! Among the Thorns caught my eye on the Tor website months ago mostly because of that cover and I've been patiently waiting for it to come out ever since. I've already read it and loved it!

    1. I pre-ordered The Girl Who Never Was a while ago but when I saw Girl Who Kissed a Lie was free on Kindle I thought it would be a good way to see if I'm going to like it, hopefully I'll get to it soon!

  14. Ahhh, I read Frances Hardinge's Cuckoo Song not so long ago and loved it, so hoping I'll get that signed, though I'm not a 100% if I'm going yet (depends on money, etc) but hoping I can! :) Happy reading!

  18. The Raven's Banquet looks (and sounds) eerie. And did you realize that three of your books this week have birds on the cover? What are the chances?? :)
