Broke & Bookish Book Haul for 10/14 - 10/27

 

Daisy's Book Haul


Bought
-Sacrifice by Cayla Kluver
-Grimm Tales by Philip Pullman, because who can resist such a pretty book filled with fairytales??? I sure can't.
-Mystic City by Theo Lawrence
-The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal

For Review
-Sacrifice by Cayla Kluver, Yes I KNOW! I was just so excited when I saw it on NetGalley I forgot I'd pre-ordered it...
-Undeadly by Michele Vail
-There's Something About Lady Mary by Sophie Barnes
-The Secret Life of Lady Lucinda by Sophie Barnes
-One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean, ALL THE EXCITEMENT! I LOVE Sarah MacLean's books!!

Kelly's Book Haul


From the library: As I think I've said before, I'm always a year or two behind on my YA reading, so most of these are oldies, but they are new and exciting to me!

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
Bossypants by Tina Fey - I ADORE Tina Fey and 30 Rock is basically my 4th favorite television show in existence. I can't wait for this one (even though the cover slightly freaks me out).


Given to me: Daisy was nice enough to send me two books for my birthday earlier this month, for which I was so grateful and excited! I am just waiting to return the favor for her! Bookish altruism is the best sort of giving.
Matched by Ally Condie
Wentworth Hall by Abby Grahame - I feel like this book is basically Downton Abbey in book form. Yes please!

In other bookish news, I got a Kindle Fire last week! It was supposed to be a present from my mom when I graduated in May, but we procrastinated a bit. I'm still figuring out how everything works, but I love it so far!


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.

  5. I think as bloggers we can get a bit caught up in reading the latest releases so it's great to spend some time with the oldies.

    1. I always feel out of the loop, but if I wait and read books later on I don't feel as pressured to like it...if that makes sense
