Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 2/3 - 2/16

Daisy's Book Haul



Egalleys for review
-The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise: this sounds SO CUTE!
-How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer: it sounds like the perfect summer read and I've heard good things about Smart Girls Get What They Want.
-Arclight by Josin L. McQuein: sounds CREEPY and exciting!
-Undercurrent by Paul E. Blackwell: a male protoganist and memory loss, I'm SO IN!
-The Breeders by Katie French: got this for a blog tour, sounds really interesting!
-Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross: this is on my most wanted debut of 2013 list! Many thanks to Elizabeth Ross for the egalley!
-The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway: TIME TRAVEL! YES!
-A Touch of Scarlet by Eve Marie Mont: seriously, who wouldn't want to step into a favourite novel??
-Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead: AAH! NEW SERIES BY RICHELLE MEAD! It sounds EPIC!
-A Touch Menacing by Leah Clifford
-Stormbringers by Philippa Gregory: I LOVE Philippa Gregory, I haven't read the first book in this series yet, but I bought it and I have no doubt I'll love it as well! I am kinda bummed by the cover change though, now my books won't match...
-Afterglow by Karsten Knight: I still need to read Embers and Echoes, but as Wildefire left us with a HUGE cliffhanger, I'll be glad to read these back to back :)
-Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young: I still haven't read anything by either of these authors (though I own their books), but I've heard amazing things and this sounds really good!
-With This Kiss, part one, two and three by Eloisa James: I love Eloisa James, these novellas sounds wonderful!


Gifted
From one of my best blogging buddies, the wonderful Alex @ A Girl, Books and Other Things I got two books:
-The Giver by Lois Lowry
-Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
Thank you so much! I'm really excited to finally own both of them as I've heard many amazing things about these books!

Bought
-Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
-Asunder by Jodi Meadows: AAAH! It's so gorgeous and I can't wait to dive back into this world!
-The Archived by Victoria Schwab: I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED The Near Witch, so I'm beyond excitement to read this one!
-Everbound by Brodi Ashton: Everneath nearly killed me with that ending, I NEED to know what happens next!
-Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness: already read, but wanted a finished copy :)
-Red Glove by Holly Black: I'm REALLY glad I waited this long to buy these books, cause I would have been heartbroken at the change in covers otherwise... Love this series!
-Prodigy by Marie Lu: still need to read Legend, but already bought this one because of all the excitement over it
-One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean: YES! LOVE SARAH MACLEAN'S BOOKS!
-Slated by Teri Terry: caught my attention because it's been re-published this year, sounds really good!
-Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi: YAY! This seems to be the week of exciting sequels coming in the mail! I hear chapter 62 is especially exciting...


Jen's Book Haul


 
Bought:
 
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
Just One Day by Gayle Forman
 
I haven't bought myself a new book in a while so as a Valentine's Day present to myself I ordered these two books from Amazon! I am SO excited to read both of these books! I've heard nothing but wonderful things about them!


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.

  2. WOW. So many good books! I can't wait to read The Boyfriend App. Mainly because of the cover lol. Unravel Me is really good! And I felt the same way about the ending of Everneath. I got Everbound this week as well and I CANNOT wait to see what happens.

    1. I REALLY hope Everbound won't end on a huge cliffhanger as well, I don't think my heart can take it...
      And I know what you mean about the cover of the Boyfriend App :)

  3. Pretty sure it is Sarah Strohmeyer, not Katie.

    Also, I didn't like Changeling by Philippa Gregory at all, but somehow feel the need to read the next book. I guess I just expect greatness from Ms. Gregory and hope the second book will live up to her reputation.

    1. Oops, thanks for pointing that out!

      I'm sorry you didn't like the first book, hope the next one lives up to your expectations!

  5. Wow, you all scored some great books this week! I've been eying Etiquette and Espionage for a while, and several bloggers I like have recommended the Sarah MacLean book. Enjoy reading all your new goodies!

    My Sunday Post (including the books I got this week)

    1. Sarah MacLean is on my insta-buy list, so far I've loved everything she's written :) To start with I'd suggest Nine Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake, first in her Love By Numbers series and still my favourite :)

  6. The Giver is one of my favourite books for ALL TIME! So beautifully written. I can't wait to read Prodigy! WOOH!

    1. I've heard so many people rave about The Giver! I'm really excited to finally read it myself! :)

    2. Oooh and I'm glad you've read White Cat. I loved the older covers :( Now they look weird side by side because they all have a different cover design. LAME! I hate is when publishers do that.

  7. I am so curious about Undercurrent, lovely haul this week! The Sunday Post

  8. I would kind of love it if The Broke and The Bookish started hosting a weekly Book Haul meme! I won't go back to IMM, and there are little things I just don't really like about Mailbox Monday and Stacking the Shelves.

    Something to think about?
