Kelly's Book Haul

From the library:
Beastly by Alex Flinn
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
Girl, Stolen by April Henry

Also, I get to pick up Going Bovine by Libba Bray,  Looking for Alaska by John Green, and Where She Went by Gayle Forman tomorrow! It's going to be one big YA party! 

Bridget's Book Haul

From my Birthday Wishlist

-The Long Walk by Stephen King.
-Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
-The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
-Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
-Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence

-A Dance with Jane Austen by Susannah Fullerton. My boyfriend's parents sent me this one since I love Jane Austen and I love to dance. They love sending us non-fiction Jane Austen stuff...I'm actually curious how many more books of this stripe they'll be able to find.
-Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. I bought this for myself on my birthday because I forgot to put it on my list. I finished it the other day and it was magnificent.

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. Awesome books! I loved Beastly. I'm still trying to get into Beauty Queens, sadly, but I hope you enjoy it :D I also adore the Black City cover. c:

    Happy Reading!

  3. So many great books. I see all these Sarah Dessen books and it makes me feel silly that I have yet to read a single one. Bad blogger! Oh The Fault in Our Stars...huggles John Green.

    1. You must read a Sarah Dessen book soon! They're amazing. I promise!

  4. Great books! And yea for libraries! See several of my favorite authors in all of your hauls, so hope you guys love them as much as I do. Enjoy!

  5. So many great books. I get teary-eyed when I see TFiOS and If I Stay. Be prepared friends, be prepared.

    Enjoy your books!!!

    Here;s my Stacking the Shelves

  6. Jen: Can't wait to see what you think of Sarah Dessen's book. I just finished my first one yesterday, Along for the Ride. Also, The Fault in Our Stars is absolutely amazing, if you love John Green already, this one will not disappoint! Enjoy!

    Daisy: I've seen not-so-good reviews for Black City, mainly because it was full of cliches. I haven't read it myself, so I'm looking forward to see how you feel towards it. (:

    Kelly: Oh wow, Beastly is a great book and an awesome twist to the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast! Holy crap, If I Stay is one of my favourites and it's a very well told contemporary. It's awesome!! I just finished Along for the Ride, it was my first Sarah Dessen novel and it was a great one. Hope you enjoy it as well!

  7. Whoops, I posted it by accident, haha. Great haul, I hope all of you guys enjoy your books. (:

  8. Rebel Angels! I have so many thoughts on that series. I can't wait to see what you think once you've read the third book, Jen! And Cadet of Tildor - YAY. I'm about to start this one, Daisy :) Oh my gosh, Kelly, have you not read If I Stay? I'm not the only one? I really need to start it, hah! Bridget, that's so cool about your boyfriend's family and the Jane Austen thing - my boyfriend's family does the same with anything London, hah!

    Fab books, ladies - hope you enjoy!

  9. So awesome to see some Sarah Dessen in those piles! :)

  10. TFIOS and Rebel Angels are both so, so good! I've been dying to read Bossypants since I love Tina Fey.

    Unremembered and the Cadet of Tildor look really awesome.

    Beauty Queens and Going Bovine are both absolutely fantastic, especially Beauty Queens. Libba Bray is just a genius. And Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite books ever!

    Amazing hauls. Happy Reading!

  11. Kelly, I loved Beastly! The movie is good, too, but the book is so much better. I hope you enjoy it!

  16. Can I say how much I love your YA-stickered haul, Jen? I am constantly pulling out books like this on the subway. I try to do it proudly!

  17. Jen: I've been hearing so much about The Fault in Our Stars - I definitely want to read it, and I'm a Hemingway fan so The Paris Wife is right up there on my TBR

    Bridget: Your list is fab - 2 of my fave literary speculative fiction titles there in the Atwood and Ishiguro. Rebecca is such a thrilling page-turner too.
