Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 5/12 - 5/25

The books I got this week are nothing new for me to review but rather hard cover pretty omnibus editions of some of my favorite comics. I'm excited because they are things that I've wanted for a long time and finally own.

Daisy's Book Haul

Egalleys for review:
-Asylum by Madeleine Roux: it sounds SO CREEPY! :D
-The Angel Stone by Juliet Dark: I really enjoyed the first book in this series and am excited to get to the sequels.
-All Our Yesterday by Cristin Terrill: this just sounds SO GOOD! And something that the boyfriend could read as well :)
-Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein: ALL THE EXCITEMENT! I loved Code Name Verity SO MUCH!
-The Rules of You and Me by Shana Norris: sounds like the perfect summer read to me :)
-Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts: what would YOU do if you only had a couple of days left to live, together with the rest of the world?
-I Married the Duke by Katharine Ashe: I love Katharine Ashe's historical romance and this one has a 'dashing sea captain' in it! Which is almost as good as a (gentleman) pirate! :D
-The Trouble With Being A Duke by Sophie Barnes: they meet at a MASQUED BALL! YES I WILL READ THIS!
-The Ruin of a Rogue by Miranda Neville: unexpected love and deceit and all of these good things :)
-Invisible by Marni Bates: I've heard many good things about Awkward and this just sounds really cute!
-Resist by Sarah Crossan: ok, so I haven't read Breathe yet, but I'm dying to! And then I can just continue with this! :D
-Confessions of Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey: this series is amazing and I'm probably gonna cry at this final book, cause we all know what happens to Marie Antoinette...

Not pictured: One Doctor by Brendan Reilly

-Inferno by Dan Brown: it was a total bargain and I couldn't resist the shiny cover!
-The Heiresses by Allison Rushby: about triplet in 1926 London. Need I really say more?
-Impossible by Nancy Werlin: a modern day fairytale about a family curse, COUNT ME IN.
-Beauty by Nancy Ohlin: set in a boarding school in a fantasy world. Seriously, why would I NOT read this?
-Oath Bound by Rachel Vincent: I own the whole series and have read none of the books, but I'm sure they will be awesome!
-Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins: yes, I do still need to read the first book... But the covers are so pretty!
-A Farewell to Charms by Lindsey Leavitt: LOVE THIS SERIES! Can't wait to finally read this last book!
-If I Should Die by Amy Plum: very much loved Die For Me and I really need to get on with the series!
-The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller: it looks ADORABLE!

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. This post has reminded me that I need to read some of H.G. Well's work! I will also be interested to see what Daisy thinks of Dan Brown's new book Inferno? Its got mixed reviews so far, which is unfortunate since all his other books have been intense!

    1. Hmm. I am not sure if it is the same where you are, but the two HG Wells books in my haul are free at Barnes and Noble. I bet that they are probably free somewhere else too. I just hope geo-restrictions work out to make them free where you are.

  2. Ooh Asylum sounds amazing. I love this new trend of books using photos in their novel. Makes it more interesting to me!

    All Our Yesterdays also sounds great- it's something different for me too, but that's awesome.


  3. Pauline, I love the Y: The Last Man series! I read the whole thing in one big obsessive binge earlier this year. The hardcovers look amazing. Lucky you!

  4. Y: The Last Man is amazing! I need to re-read it, and eventually invest in the beautiful hardcovers.

    All Our Yesterdays and Tumble & Fall sound so good!

  5. Nice haul! I loooved Sweet Peril(: I stole it from my bestie(;

  6. Awesome haul ladies. I come here and you make my pile seem small. So many good books that I want. Enjoy them.
