Book Haul #80

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!

It looks bad, it really does... There's quite a few books this week but I had a $20 gift certificate which covered some of my spend, honestly! There was also lots of squeeing earlier this week when I  decided to take a risk on clicking request for Heir of Fire and got approved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think that's the biggest title I've decided to see what happens if I request it but it made me oh so happy!

Bought

Eyes Like Leaves | Fangirl | Say Her Name

Feet of Clay | Jingo
Kindle

Bright Young Things | The Immortal Crown | Take Back the Skies

    1. I'm going to do a Throne/Crown re-read and then get stuck into Heir, can't wait! Gollancz have released/are releasing 21 of the Discworld books with these fab covers, I'm just waiting for the last 5 to be published over the next 2 months :)

  4. Looks like a good week! I really need to get on with reading Fangirl, and I'm getting intrigued by Take Back the Skies.

    Also, I love the tie-in media campaign thing for Say Her Name, have you seen it? For some reason Bloody Mary scares me out of my skin, so I wooon't be reading it, but I love the advertising.

    1. Fangirl is the last of RR's published books that I have left to read and I want to read it before the thing in July! Bloody Mary is one of my favourite legends, read the book, loved it and the media campaign was a touch of genius :)

    1. I read Sarah's work when it was originally on FictionPress many years ago but the published books are so much better and definitely worth reading!

  13. Great haul. Love those covers for the Terry Pratchett books, have actually never read any of his books before. Say Her Name looks really intriguing, want to read that one myself. I hope you enjoy them all. Here's mine.

  17. I got Heir of Fire too!! I was sure I wasn't going to get approved, so it was a big surprise to me. Enjoy that book and the rest of your new ones!

  18. I'm dying to read Koko Takes a Holiday, I must try to get that one! Um, Say Her Name--just no on that one. The Bloody Mary myth scares the crap out of me!

  19. Great haul! Say Her Name has such a freaky cover; I may have to look into reading that one. I've heard such great things about Fangirl though I've yet to read it.
