Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 7/21 - 8/3

Before I forget: I have a giveaway for Mist by Susan Krinard going on over at my personal blog! Click here to go to the post and enter! Open to residents of the US and Canada!

Daisy's Book Haul

-Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: Yes, I did actually already own the hardcover, but they changed the cover and now my books won't match and this cover is so pretty and AAAH! I just had to buy it ok?
-Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith: LOVE these two books!! Now I finally own them :)
-The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman: I enjoyed The Left Hand of God when I read it a couple of years ago, I never got around to buying the sequel though.
-And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini: I have some serious cover love for this one! It's so gorgeous! And of course I couldn't pass up on the author's newest release because DUH.
-Belladonna by Fiona Paul: I really need to read Venom, but couldn't resist pre-ordering this one :)
-The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: remember how I asked for recommendations about what to read after I devoured all the books in the Song of Ice and Fire series so far? This is one of the recommendations I got, see, I totally listen!
-The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner: I think this was a recommendation as well, besides April from Good Books and Good Wine has been singing the praises of this series and I usually love the same fantasy books she does.
-The Poison Throne by Celine Kiernan: another recommendation, SEE HOW YOU ALL MADE ME SPEND MONEY?
-Mistwood by Leah Cypess: I'd been eyeing this one for a couple of years now and decided to just order it already.
-The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: EVERYONE has been raving about this one, I'm not really sure it'll be my kind of book, but I gave into peer pressure and bought it.
-Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: same goes for this one, besides, it was a total bargain.
-Magician by Raymond E. Feist: ANOTHER recommendation. I remember reading some of Feist's books when I was a teenager, I just can't remember if I've read this one. But his first series in the Riftwar Cycle seems like a good place to start up again :)

Egalleys for Review
-The Wicked Wallflower by Maya Rodale: I love a good tale where two people are pretending to be engaged and end up actually in love with each other :)
-Keeping Her by Cora Carmack: Obviously I need more Bliss and Garrick! Especially Garrick!
-Foreplay by Sophie Jordan: This is the start of Sophie Jordan's New Adult series! I love her historical romance, so it'll be interesting to see if I love this NA series as well!
-A Song At Twilight by Pamela Sherwood: lovers with a past meet again, YES!
-The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Andersen: second book in the series that explores a world in which Anne Boleyn had had a son and lived. SO EXCITED!
-Bellman And Black by Diane Setterfield: AAAAH!! I LOVED The Thirteenth Tale and I'm just so beyond excited to read this one!!
-The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn: this was a no-brainer, it's by Julia Quinn and she brings ALL THE GOOD STUFF in a historical romance!
-These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman: this is blurbed as 'a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds'. I like those kinds of stories.
-White Space by Ilsa J. Bick: about a girl who jumps between the lines of books and into the white space where realities are created and destroyed, I mean YES OBVIOUSLY I NEED TO READ THIS!!
-The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain: I'm so loving all these Greek Mythology retellings!! :D This sounds AMAZING!
-A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris: YAYYY!! I read My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century on Friday and I LOVED IT! I'm do excited to read the sequel!!
-Hover by Melissa West: I actually still need to read Gravity, but it sounds like something I would very much enjoy :)
-The Governess Club by Ellie MacDonald: an earl posing as a tutor!! That's bound to cause all of the good tension!
-The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: a profiling genius teen working with the FBI and a killer targeting them!! I AM SO IN!
-The F-It List by Julie Halpern: this has the potential to be truly heartbreaking.

Jen's Book Haul

All books from library
-The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
-The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston
-Divergent by Veronica Roth
-In Honor by Jessi Kirby
-Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

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 felt the same way about the Throne of Glass cover. I really didn't like the hardcover one...

  2. Loved The 5th Wave and looking forward to your thoughts on The Thief. Enjoy!

  3. There are some really awesome titles and both of your lists, but my favorite has to be Feist's Magician. It has been my favorite fantasy story since I was thirteen (and has only recently been tromped slightly by The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss). I hope you both enjoy your books! :-)

  4. Omg you have so many great books! I can't WAIT to read These Broken Stars!!! Great haul(:

  5. Glad you love Crown Duel as well! I remember getting it a couple years ago and loving it and I ended up buying my own copy as well.:) Also looking forward to reading White Space as well.
