Book Haul #57

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!

As I thought I didn't get books for Christmas from other people but I certainly treated myself! I splurged on something I've needed coveted wanted for a while and also picked up a few extras - I should never go shopping with my sister as we always seem to end up spending a small fortune, we enable each other! This is the last book haul that would include books I've bought, I'm going to try and be good in 2014 which means only reading books I already own, that come from the library or if I'm lucky, review titles. It's going to be hard but I have so many things I want to do and that means saving the pennies!


The Dark Is Rising - Susan Cooper (Folio Society)

The Nightmare Before Christmas - Tim Burton

Path of Needles - Alison Littlewood
These Broken Stars - Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

The Goldfinch - Donna Tartt

Familiar Spirit - Lisa Tuttle

The Pillow Friend - Lisa Tuttle

  11. Oh, I love that edition of The Dark is Rising -- I saw it in the Bodleian Library when I was there to see an exhibition (they had a recording Susan Cooper reading the prophecy poem as one of the exhibits!) and I want it so much. But I have too many books, and I still love my battered, tattered copy...

  12. Cool haul. Hope you enjoy everything, especially These Broken Stars. I just love that cover :)

    Happy new year!
