Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 7/7 - 7/20

Daisy's Book Haul

-The Heartbreakers by Pamela Wells: sometimes I'm REALLY smart and accidentally pick up the second book in a series. So I had to order this as it's the first part :)
-For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund: I've heard NOTHING but amazing things about this book! Am very excited to read it!!
-Poison Princess by Kresley Cole: I hear Kresley Cole's books are very popular, I want in on this action.
-The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan: I haven't actually read the first book, but I LOVED the Percy Jackson series, so of course I'm book hoarding these.
-Pretty Little Liars
Unbelievable by Sara Shepard:
So I've been OBSESSED with the TV series lately and the boyfriend's sister really loves these books, then I received a coupon and ordered them :)

Egalleys for Review:
Ok, so there was this outbreak of AMAZING Harper titles on Edelweiss and well, I have no self control when it comes to those... Mostly because lots of them were on my pining-for list :)
-Grasping At Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper: this sounds fascinating! I'm always intrigued by reincarnation stories!
-Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas: this sounds adorable!
-The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine: I'm such a sucker for cute contemporaries! And this cover alone is lovely :)
-Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell: this sounds SO CREEPY!
-Uninvited by Sophie Jordan: OMG, ALL THE EXCITEMENT!! I've been waiting for this book FOREVER! (or it feels like it) It sounds AMAZING!
-Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge: SO EXCITED! I love fairytale retellings and this one is about Beauty and the Beast! One of my favourite fairytales :)
-No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale: isn't the title alone so creepy?? This sounds a little Pretty Little Liar-esque and YES I'LL READ THIS!
-All That Glows by Ryan Graudin: so the Fae and I haven't always been best buddies, but this sounds so good that I'll give them a 15th chance :)
-Perfect Lies by Kiersten White: LOVE the cover! I actually own the hardcover of Mind Games, still need to read it though, but then I'll read this straight after! :)
-Elusion by Claudia Gabel: the dangers of submerging yourself in a virtual reality are endlessly fascinating to me!
-Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd: OMG, I totally LOVED The Madman's Daughter!! SO excited for this sequel!
-The House of Ivy & Sorrow by Natalie Whipple: there is witchcraft and a curse and OMG I'M SO IN!
-Warrior by Ellen Oh: I really enjoyed Prophecy, the first book in the series, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what adventures Kira will go on this time!
-Pretty Sly by Elisa Ludwig: I haven't read Pretty Crooked yet, but this series sounds so good with a girl that has the modern Robin Hood thing going on!
-Panic by Lauren Oliver: SO EXCITED! LOVE LAUREN OLIVER!

-The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan: Courtney Milan is self-publishing her new series and I read one or two of her books before that I loved!
-Great by Sara Benincasa: a retelling of The Great Gatsby, which I haven't actually read, but sounds totally amazing!
-Gemini Rising by Eleanor Wood: an exclusive private school and Ouija bords. Seriously, do I have to say more?
-The Seduction of Lady Phoebe by Ella Quinn: I love swooning over historical romances :)
-Royal Inheritance by Kate Emerson: I'm slightly obsessed with Henry VIII and this book is about one of his illegitimate children.
-Sometimes a Rogue by Mary Jo Putney: there is a rogue and racing across Ireland and kidnapping and YAYYY!
-When The Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke: the heroine is a matchmaker who doesn't want to help the the hero find a match, of course this will be fun!!
-The Strangled Queen by Maurice Druon: this series is being re-released and comes highly recommended by George R.R. Martin.
-The Chronos Clock by Wendy L. Callahan: I was contacted by the author and this definitely sounds like my kind of steampunk :)
-Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick: this sounds absolutely heartbreaking!
-Things Good Girls Don't Do by Codi Gary: I really like the sound of this, but I'm not really a fan of the cover... She looks awkward.
-(no cover)
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott: I cannot imagine having your mother lying in a coma, basically being a baby incubator!

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 got a lot of the same e-galleys as you from Edelweiss, but didn't find Panic by Lauren Oliver, MUST GO find it now!! :-) I've wanted to read For Darkness Shows the Stars for awhile as well. And I read the first one before The Son of Neptune, but need to read on with that one! Great haul this week! I'm an old GFC follower.
    Check out my STS

    1. They took Panic down for a couple of days, it's back now :) Glad to see I'm not the only one who loves her egalleys ;)

  2. For Darkness Shows the Stars is a pretty good book; I assume you've read Persuasion, which it's based on ? I'm really looking forward to Diana Peterfreund's new book, Across a Star-Swept Sea, which is a sci-fi retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

    Great looks amazing! I can't wait.

    Hmm....all of those are classic retellings. Interesting.

    I'd love it if you'd follow me!

    1. I've read Persuasion and really liked it! I love all these classics retellings that are popping up :)

  3. I added a bunch of these to my wish list. I'm especially intrigued by the Gatsby retelling.

  4. Wow! This is a huge haul! You're going to love Pretty Little Liars. The show is different from the books but the books are just as fantastic. Also, PANIC!! I'm dying to read it. Hope you enjoy!

    Happy Reading

    1. Yay!! So glad you enjoyed the books! I'd heard they were different (and got some spoilers as well... :( )
      I'm SO excited for Panic!! :D

  5. Jeez thats a huge (and amazing, totally jealous) haul!!! I hope you love them :3
    Happy reading

  6. I love the Percy Jackson series too! I've been reading the Heroes of Olympus series but I still need to read The Mark of Athena before The House of Hades comes out in October.

  7. So many fantastic books! Perfect Lies, Dark Curiosity, and Uninvited!! I'm SO JEALOUS of those! Very cool! The Poison Princess is one I've had on my TBR list for a long time! It sounds really good. Happy reading all of these amazing books!

    1. Than you!! I'm so exciteed for all of them! :D

  9. Wonderful haul! I need to get my very own copy of For Darkness Shows the Stars (since its a retelling of Persuasion, which is my favorite Austen novel!).

    Eek, I need to request egalleys for Dear Killer, Perfect Lies, and Elusion. The covers are gorgeous.

    1. I really love Persuasion! :)
      And YES! Aren't the covers amazing?? Harper definitely has some of the best covers out there!

  10. Whoa, you got so many of the books I've been pinning over too! Have fun reading!
