Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 6/9 - 6/22

Daisy's Book Haul

Egalleys for Review:

-Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone: I haven't actually read the first book in this series yet, but I've heard AMAZING things about it, very excited to dive into this series!
-Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep: I have had lots of ups and downs with this series, but the last book was SO GOOD, I'm really excited to see what happens next for Gwen and Logan!!
-How To Marry a Highlander by Katharine Ashe: I love Katharine Ashe's historical romance!
-Summer is For Lovers by Jennifer McQuiston: I'm all for young women in historical romances breaking society's rules :)

So this was the book haul when LOTS OF PRE-ORDERS came in and some of my splurges because of BEA envy ;)

-An Offer From A Gentleman by Julia Quinn: Julia Quinn is awesome, I really want to read her whole backlist :)
-How To Tame Your Duke by Juliana Gray: I'm trying to discover more historical romance authors to love and decided to give Juliana Gray a try.
-Keeping the Castle by Patricia Kindl: this book sounds ADORABLE! And I love castles :)
-Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers: so I still need to read Grave Mercy, but seriously ASSASSIN NUNS. Enough said.
-Reached by Ally Condie: another series I need to start, I'll just binge-read them soonish :)
-The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson: ALL THE EXCITEMENT!! And it is so PRETTY! :D
-Goddess by Josephine Angelini: I loved Starcrossed and just had to have the ending to this series!
-I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella: I love Sophie Kinsella's books, they are the very best chicklit in my humble opinion.
-The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller: I'll be honest, I'm looking at a LOOOONG wait after the last of the A Song of Ice and Fire books and I'm looking for epic fantasy series to read to tie me over.
-Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin: I LOVED Masque of the Red Death, so excited to continue this series!
-Enchanted by Alethea Kontis: I've heard MANY good things about Enchanted and its sequel!
-As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott: I'm always intrigued by a good amnesia story and this one sounds really creepy!
-Storybound by Marissa Burt: it's about a school were children learn how to be a fairytale character, YES I AM SO IN!
-Identity Theft by Anna Davies: this is actually a bit smaller than I had expected, so it'll be a fast, creepy read!

Jen's Book Haul

*all books from the library
- Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys:
I loved Between Shades of Gray and I can't wait to start this book!
- Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler:
Started reading this one and it sounds SO I think I may have read it before but according to Goodreads I haven't.
- Easy by Tammara Webber:
 I saw a raving review of this book either on a blog or Goodreads and decided to give it a try!

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. I love Julia Quinn! I've read ALL of her books and can't wait for the next one to be released!


  2. Great books, both of you! I have Reached and Out of Easy on my TBR pile and they both sound amazing. Easy is a great book, my first NA read but it was still good :) Happy reading!

  3. I'm in the middle of Dark Triumph and so far, I love it so much more than Grave Mercy! Nice haul :)

  4. I just finished Goddess....reviewing it now xD Can't wait to see your review(: Great haul!

  5. I'll have to check out Katharine Ashe!

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one that had a BEA-envy-binge LOL!

    Out of the Easy was great - Ruta Sepetys knows how to write historical fiction :-D


  7. Grave Mercy was literally my all time FAVORITE book from last year, so I'm really hoping you won't be disappointed! I have Dark Triumph waiting for me on my bookshelf now too! I can't wait to get to it! I think it will be very soon now that it's summer. :) Enchanted was fun and I can't wait to try out Hero's story next! Bethany Griffin's story was SUCH a cliffhanger that I'm DYING to read book 2 and can't wait for that one!!! I'm very jealous that you got that one! Very cool! I just got an ARC of Gooddes from a pal, so now I can read both book 2&3 of Angelini's series! I've been waiting for her to finish the series. Fantastic haul Daisy! WOW!

  9. Great stack! I have the same problem indulging in books and getting so many, it's ridiculous! My haul is here:

  10. I want the Rithmatist! *Brandon Sanderson fan here* :)

  11. out of the easy! i wish to have it soon >.<

  12. There are far too many awesome books in this list for me to name them all. I am really looking forward to Time After Time, though. I read the first book and it was some of the most beautiful prose.
    Enjoy them all!
