Broke & Bookish Book Haul for 9/16 - 9/22


Paula's Book Haul

Went to Target with the intent of buying only laundry detergent..... somehow A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin fell into my basket while I was there! Oopsies.

Julia's Book Haul

Personally, I am trying not to buy books until I move, because moving books is hard. But, moving eBooks is easy...This is what I've bought in September thus far. 

From the Library:
- The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James

For my Nook:
- Undone by Lila DiPasqua
- The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton by Miranda Neville

For My 3 Year Old Cousin's Birthday:
- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr., John Archambault and Lois Ehlert
- Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle

I am the best aunt/cousin ever. He always likes the books I get for him, and I get them at every holiday/birthday . Last year it was 'The Little Engine that Could'. He is quite the reader :)




Jamie's Book Haul

For review:

- Through The Ever Night by Veronica Rossi  (OMG  I loved Under the Never Sky!! SO excited!)
- Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
- Prophecy by Ellen Oh
- Everbound by Brodi Ashton
- Everybody Sees The Ants by AS King (audiobook)
- Happier At Home by Gretchen Rubin  (audiobook)


SO I went to the National Book Fest this weekend (and met John GREEN!!!!!!) but realized before I left that I had loaned out all my JG books (minus An Abundance of  Katherines) to a co-worker!  SO naturally I had to buy the ones I didn't have so I could get him to sign them!!

Looking For Alaska by John Green
Paper  Towns by John Green
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green


Our Broke & Bookish book haul is inspired by memes like IMM & Stacking the Shelves & Mailbox Monday. This is just our very simple way of doing it collaboratively so we can participate in all of them and not have to choose one.


  1. Yea! Throught the Ever Night! I can't wait. Lucky you....

  2. I read the Ugly Duchess! I really liked the beginning a lot, but the second part was a little strange for me.

    1. I had mixed feelings. The beginning had me almost throwing up from the deception. The middle they were apart for too long. And the end was a bit rushed...

      I have a full review that I'll probably put in the queue for posting at some point :)

      I still really like Eloisa James writing and thought it was quite a unique premise.

  3. Great haul. Salivating over all those Harper Titles. Great haul of books.


  4. Looks like you all got great hauls! I also have A feast for Crows but have not read it yet, i hope you like it.

    Check out my IMM

  5. I'm super jealous of Jamie, Revolution 19 and Prophecy in one week. Awesome! Books in supermarkets are dangerous, it's just too much temptation.

  6. OOOH John Green!!! I want to breathe his air!


    That's all I have to say. :D
