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

Daisy's Book Haul

-Insatiable by Meg Cabot: I've been meaning to read more of Meg Cabot's books and this one was bargainpriced, so of course I had to order it!
-Slide by Jill Hathaway: I've been feeling really guilty about slacking on reading my review copy of it and bought the paperback to make up for it :)
-Pulse by Patrick Carman: this book was screaming at me to buy it because it just sounds like such a me-book! I'm hoping it'll be awesome!
-Shiver, Linger and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater: I already owned and read the first book in the series, but couldn't resist the sale on this pretty boxed set! I didn't love Shiver, but I do want to know why everybody was raving about the series so I'll read it eventually.
-Requiem by Lauren Oliver: EEE! It's HERE! I will binge-read Pandemonium and this one soon!
-Be My Prince by Julianne MacLean: I wanted to try a new historical romance author and this seemed a good book to start with :)
-Switched by Amanda Hocking: people seem to either LOVE it or hate it, which always makes me curious about a book!
-The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter: I'm both sad the series is ending and excited to see what will happen after that GINORMOUS cliffhanger at the end of Goddess Interrupted!
-The Trouble With Flirting by Claire LaZebnik: Epic Fail was really cute and this looks like a cute contemporary read as well :)
-The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen: so I haven't read The False Prince yet, I obviously needed this book!
-Gilt by Katherine Longshore: LOVED THIS BOOK! Needed my own copy :)

Egalleys for Review
-The Deepest Night by Shana Abe: this series just sounds so exciting!
-The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross: I really, really like this series, these books are what make me give steampunk a second, third and fourth chance!
-Blood Between Queens by Barbara Kyle: I don't know why I hadn't heard of this series before, because it sounds like just the thing for my Tudor obsessed heart!
-Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries: I've been hearing really good things about this author and this novella sounds like it has the potential to be really sweet!
-Lady Vivian Defies a Duke by Samantha Grace: I love those romances in which someone plays matchmaker and ends up falling for the person he's matching up with someone else :)
-One Night With a Rake by Mia Marlowe: a rake who falls in love. Yes I am a sap for these kinds of stories!
-The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry: sometimes I just need to get my creep on and this sounds like just the book for it!
-This is W.A.R. by Lisa & Laura Roecker: a girl is killed and four other girls our out for VENGEANCE, YES!

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. Wow, you got a ton of awesome books this week! Have fun reading!!!

    My STS

  2. Is it bad that I haven't read any of Lauren Oliver's books yet? :x I knowww, what have I been doing with my life!?!? Anywayy, while I attempt to catch up on the many awesome series out there, happy reading to you!

    1. Haha, you can always catch up ;) I haven't read beyond Delirium yet either, but there's still hope!

  3. Bleh, I wasn't really a fan of Blood Between Queens :(

    1. :( I'm sad you didn't like it!

    2. I don't like historical novels that are about mostly fictional characters who are either really close friends with or do important things for real people (like in this book, Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots), you know what I mean? I like reality! Oh well, hopefully you'll like it more than me!

  4. I loved the Lauren Oliver Delirium series annnnd you must get your butt moving on THE FALSE PRINCE. love love love it!!!! I just reviewed on my blog a self pubbed book I bought. Holla!!! :) Gotta support the writers anyway we can, right? :-)

  5. I really liked Switched, but my friend didn't read past the fifth chapter. I guess you were right with the love it or hate it thing, but I took the love it side!

  6. Just got The Runaway King too! So excited to start that. I'm really for some awesome MG fiction after all the business has blown over.

  7. I'm really excited to read The Runaway King! I just got it in the mail, too. I hope it's as epic as the first one. Awesome haul! Happy reading!

  8. Fantastic book haul this week! That's a beautiful box set of Stiefvater's series. I really enjoyed book one but the series went a bit downhill for me. Still enjoyed reading it though. And I agree... Gilt totally needs to be on my bookshelf too. Loved it! Can't wait for Tarnish!
    My Showcase Sunday!

  9. Awesome haul this week loves! All these books sound so amazing! I especially want to read Slide, The Girl Who was Supposed to Die, Pulse, and Gilt. Hope you guys enjoy them! (:
