Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 3/31 - 4/13

Daisy's Book Haul



Egalleys for review:
-Ink by Amanda Sun: this sounds fascinating and I kinda love that it's set in Japan as I hardly read any books set there!
-The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley: I LOVED The Rose Garden! I'm really excited to get to this one!
-Royal Mistress by Anne Easter Smith: I'm an anglophile and I'm not afraid to show it, this sounds right up my alley!
-Tempest Revealed by Tracy Deebs: I really liked Tempest Rising and Tempest Unleashed, though I had some issues with the last one, but I'm really excited to see what'll happen next!
-The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau: it sounds like a high stakes dystopian and I LOVE book like that!
-Intuition by C.J. Omololu: I thought Transcendence was pretty good and I'm eager to see what'll happen and if there'll be a love triangle like I predicted in my review!


Bought/gifted:
-Banner of the Damned by Sherwood Smith: I love Sherwood Smith's writing and couldn't resist ordering this when the paperback came out!
-A Touch of Scarlet by Eve Marie Mont: I loved A Breath of Eyre so of course I needed the sequel!
-With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent: I'm SO behind on this series, but I'll read them soon! LOVE TOD!
-Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt: her Princess for Hire series is AMAZING! I'm so excited to start this one!
-Torn by Amanda Hocking: second book in the series I've heard both really good and really bad things about, it was on sale so obviously I needed to buy it.
-Fractured by Teri Terry: same goes for this one ;) I should start Book Hoarders Anonymous...
-Clockwork Angel
Clockwork Prince
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare: I've heard so much about this series and the people at Appliances Online were nice enough to send me this pretty boxset! Also: it's huge!

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.
