Book Haul #39

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!

So, I'm thinking Operation TBR should start in a few weeks... I may have bought a few books this week, I may have downloaded a few Kindle freebies, I may have bought some Strange Chemistry 1st birthday celebration titles (even though I own & have read Broken in paperback I'll be reviewing it next month as part of my Classics Retold project), I may have requested a few titles on Netgalley/Edelweiss... Let's face it, I well and truly messed up the book buying ban and I know I'm going to be in London until September 4th - Patrick Ness! Waterstones Piccadilly! Can't wait! Here's what tipped me off the book ban wagon!


The Cats of Tanglewood Forest - Charles de Lint

Karavans - Jennifer Roberson

Omens - Kelley Armstrong

 Bought - Kindle

Blackwood - Gwenda Bond

Katya's World - Jonathan L Howard

Broken - A E Rought

Kindle Freebies

Canary - Rachele Alpine

Lady of Devices - Shelley Adina

Scar & The Wolf 
Blog Tour

Six Months Later - Natalie D Richards


Tainted - A E Rought

The Clockwork Scarab - Colleen Gleason

A Study In Silks - Emma Jane Holloway

What did you get this week? Feel free to leave tips on how to stick to the book buying ban ;)


  1. I picked up "Omens" too and I'm so excited! Happy reading!

    Tsuki’s STS

    1. I'm really looking forward to Omens, feels like it was a long wait!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Really liked Blackwood and so want to read Broken. I hope you love them :)

    1. I loved Broken but I'm rereading for Classics Retold next month, just finished Woken Gods by Gwenda so thought I'd check out Blackwood!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Nice haul of books this week. I always love seeing what people get. You got some interesting books.

    Books of Love

  4. I really need to get my hands on Omens! I love Armstrong :) Thanks for stopping by My Haul!


  5. So many of these need to be added to my TBR list. I'm jealous :) Happy reading!

    My STS.

  6. I love the look of Broken! I hope you enjoy your books :-)

  7. Awesome haul! I got a copy of Six Months Later this week for a blog tour and I'm really excited to read it. It sounds really fantastic and the cover is gorgeous. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  8. I'm really excited for Omens. I have it on order at the library. Six Months Later sounds amazing. I was pretty disappointed in Broken, but I'm curious to hear what you think about it (and its sequel). Great haul this week!

  9. Wow, so many books...I just got The Clockwork Scarab too. I'm not sure if I want to read Tainted or not. I read the first book (Broken) and it was just ok for me.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. I need to get a copy of Omens! It sounds really good.
    I'm also on the tour for Six Months Later and it sounds quite intriguing. I can't wait to get to it.
    I hope you enjoy your lovely books! :)

  11. Oooo I am thinking about getting the Cats of Tanglewood Forest - It looks so good! I LOVED Omens and I hope you do too. I still can't believe I got to interview her!

    You made out like a fat rat this week!

    1. It is really good, I absolutely love CdL's writing and the illustrations by Charles Vess are gorgeous!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Ahh... I'm in love with the cover of the Cats of Tanglewood forest. As for your other books, I haven't heard of them.

    Have a fab Monday!
