Book Haul #62

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!

All I can say about this week's incoming books is oops! I was so good, I even resisted half of these titles on Edelweiss for nearly a month but they've been calling to me... And I may have gone slightly insane with the old download button... But on the other hand, I have Cress!!! Now I just need to read Cinder and Scarlet! I'll also admit to already owning a copy of Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson but at over one thousand pages the thing is darn heavy, especially in bed when you're trying to read under the quilt because it's so cold. I completely blame Shadowmagic on my brother-in-law, if he hadn't mentioned it in an email I could have forgotten it was on my wishlist and left it there for another year or two. Instead I forked over the princely sum of $1.63/99p for a copy, just don't tell my sister!


Cress - Marissa Meyer

Cruel Beauty - Rosamund Hodge

  1. Ooo, I love love love Cruel Beauty! And I saw most of those Harper titles on Edelweiss, but I had to put a hold on all the downloading I've been doing! Too many review books D: Hope you enjoy all of the books you got! :)

    Have an awesome weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

  2. I'm looking forward to Cruel Beauty too. I haven't read the School of Good and Evil, but it sounds good. I'm going to get to the Cinder series finally this year.

  3. YAYAYAYA for Cress! I loved it. Just absolutely loved it. ^.^ (Though I still think Scarlet is my all-time favourite, you know, if I had to choose.) I'd love to read Cruel Beauty! Everyone raves about it. :) My StS!

  4. You've got some great books this week! I want to read so many of them.

  5. YAY! The Lunar Chronicles is awesome. I hope you enjoy your experience. I've been meaning to read The Way of Kings for the longest time - it sounds like such a good read! I got 'Molly Pierce' and 'Lily Graves' (my personal names for them because I can't keep track of all these titles with people's names in them XD) last month, and I'm so looking forward to reading them.
