Jamie's Book Haul 

I'm not at home because I'm watching my nieces and nephews while my sis is in the hospital so I can't show everything I got but I had this box from Bloomsbury with me and got my nieces in on it!

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. Aw, congrats on the baby niece! What an absolutely adorable picture! :)

    Sarah @ Kitties Like Books Too

  2. I want to read Vessel, its cover is amazing. I'll wait to see your opinion

  3. Nice haul(: & Awhhh..your new niece is adorable!!
    Happy reading

  4. Daisy, I love the A Great and Terrible Beauty series! I hope you love Days of Blood and Starlight (and Daughter of Smoke and Bone). I still haven't read Throne of Glass, but it seems like Crown of Midnight has been getting absolutely glowing reviews, so I think I will buy it soon.

    Awww, she is adorable, Jaime!

  5. Congratulations on the new baby niece. Also, wonderful haul. So many good titles that I don't know where to begin. :)

    I hope you enjoy everything!

  6. Yay, Gemma Doyle trilogy! (I finally got my own copies because they were so inexpensive at the Strand this summer, haha.) Hope you read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and love it! Vessel sounds amazing.

    Your niece is ADORABLE! Congratulations!

  7. Congratulations on your adorable baby niece! (:

    Awesome haul! I hadn't heard of Dangerous by Shannon Hale-- I've been meaning to read some of her fairytale/middle-grade books, but this one sounds excellent.

    Also, SO JEALOUS that you have Crown of Midnight! I am waiting for it from my library, and am just dying waiting for the order to come-- sometimes it takes months! :(

    Anyways, thanks for the haul!!

  8. I also own Mila 2.0 and was super excited when I bought it but still haven't picked it up.. That happens a lot.

    and Congrats on the new niece! Adorable!

  9. Great haul! I liked Mila 2.o. I'll be reading Days of Blood and Starlight as part of my 2nd Annual September is for Sequels Challenge.

  10. I love the Libba Bray series. I was thinking about rereading it.

  11. I think this is a great idea. Maybe I wouldn't spend so much on books if I could visually see how many books I bring into my house. I love your blog. Keep up the good work!
