-The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan: LOVE RICK RIORDAN!!! I don't know how I never got around to buying this book before!!
-The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock had SUCH a powerful message that I want to see if this is as amazing!

-The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black: Holly Black is awesome. I really need no other reason.
-The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson: SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS BOOK!!! And the whole series! I totally hugged it when it got here and seeing as I read it MONTHS ago, it's probably due a reread :)

-Wake Up Missing by Kate Messner: how is there not more buzz about this book??? I totally love the sound of it!
-Sweet Legacy by Tera Lynn Childs: really enjoyed the first book in this series, haven't read the second yet, but I really needed this. Duh.

So I went book shopping with some AMAZING Dutch book bloggers: Debby, Judith, Mel, Daphne and Iris! :D It was so much fun! We went to a booksale and all got a nice pile of books :)

-Dreaming Anastasia
-Haunted by Joy Preble: Russian History!! And Baba Yaga!! I so hope this series is good!
-A Knight In Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux: I really enjoyed one of her contemporary romances, True Love, so I figured I should try this historical romance :)
-The Predicteds by Christine Seifert: this sounds really interesting and also creepy!
-The Lovely Bones and Looking Glass by Alice Sebold: I really loved this book when I read it a couple years ago and I couldn't resist this pretty boxed set with the added Looking Glass which FREAKED ME OUT when I opened it because it has all these faces in it!! I mean, I get why they're there, it just freaks me out.
-Fake Boyfriend by Kate Brian: I totally bought this because of the awesome cover with a Ken doll on it. And it sounds kinda cute :)
-Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer: it sounds like my kind of feel-good read :)

I think I might need to go on a book buying ban... Those never really last though...

Egalleys for Review:
-Never Desire A Duke by Lily Dalton: I'm a sucker for a marriage gone wrong and then going SO RIGHT!

-Something Real by Heather Demetrios: this take on reality TV sounds intriguing!
-Alienated by Melissa Landers: I'm usually not an alien-kinda-girl but this sounds really good!
-Model Misfit by Holly Smale: I thought Geek Girl was really cute, so I'm looking forward to reading more about Harriet's adventures!
Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase: I totally loved The Princess Diaries and movies like that, and this sounds like it is a slightly more mature version of that!!

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. Aleinated???! Just my most anticipated release of 2014...*shrugs/happy dance* AND Coldest Girl??? Luckyyyy.
    Happy reading :D

    1. Thank you :) I'm very excited for both of those!! :D

    1. Yes! So much love for Holly Black and Rick Riordan! :D

  3. So many great books! (I'm jealous!) I can't wait to see what your thoughts are. :)

  4. Dreaming Anastasia was amazing. I read book 2&3 out of order but it still was a really fun read. I have a Russian Obsession lately so anything Russian was bought.

  5. Envious of your books ;) I love Holly Black Tithe series. I'll have to read The Red Pyramid.

  6. I don't quite know what to say, the book list never ends - I am part jealous but mostly relieved I don't have that many books being squashed into my mailbox. Happy reading!

  7. Lots of good books this week. Me Before You is really good. Get the tissues out if you're prone to crying. I did not like the Red Pyramid as much as I wanted to. Interested to see what you guys think of it.
