Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 9/15 - 9/28

Daisy's Book Haul

-More Than This by Patrick Ness: Book Club made me do it! I've been hearing all sorts of wonderful things about Patrick Ness' writing and although this book doesn't sound particularly exciting, I will read it and hopefully become a fan as well. It's also the first book club book! Yay book club! :)
-The Ocean At The End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: I tell myself the excuse that I had to buy it because I am a member of this bookish-thing and it has me ordering a book from them every 3 months, but really, it's shiny. And it's Neil Gaiman.
-Hidden by Sophie Jordan: Because I can't resist ordering all the books in a series I haven't even started yet... This is a thing now...
-Deception by C.J. Redwine: I've heard really good things about Defiance and although I haven't read it yet myself, I plan to soonish!

I have many amazing people in my life and they make my heart happy buying me books!
-From my brother for my birthday: Het Meisjesboek: the original title was The Daring Book For Girls and it promises me that it has EVERYTHING a girl should know hidden in its pages :)
-From the GP I have my residency with for my birthday: Stand-up Filosoof: which translates as Stand-Up Philosopher, it's a non-fiction book and it sounds really interesting!
-From The Broke and the Bookish's very own Kimberly just because she's an amazing person: Tuesdays At The Castle by Jessica Day George: I ADORE this book! If you haven't read it, go do it now, because it's a Middle Grade novel that totally stole my heart! And Kimberly, being the wonderful person she is, went to a signing a while back and got me a signed copy as well!! Look how pretty it is:

I know I already said it, but thank you so much!! <3

Egalleys for Review:
-Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne: prequel to the Midnight Thief, which will be released in 2014, sounds really good!
-Gentlemen Prefer Mischief by Emily Greenwood: I love a good ugly duckling turns beauty story :)
-Far From You by Tess Sharpe: this sounds SO CREEPY and amazing and just YAY!!!
-Infinityglass by Myra McEntire: SO MUCH EXCITEMENT!! I really love this series and I'm dying to find out what happens in this last book!
-Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler: lately I've been leaning towards more contemporary and this one sounds amazing!
-Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder: EEEE!! ALL THE EXCITEMENT!!! I mean, seriously, I squealed when I saw this on NetGalley and you better believe I'm reading it soon!! So much love for Maria V. Snyder's writing!!
-Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong: I've heard really good things about Kelley Armstrong's books and this one sounds like just my kind of book!
-Wicked Little Secrets by Susanna Ives: a childhood hero. Really, that's all I need.
-The Scandal In Kissing An Heir by Sophie Barnes: I really enjoyed the first book in this series and this one sounds really good as well :)

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 read The Ocean at the End of the Lane last week, and adored it. I hope you like it too.

    Here's my round-up of the week.


  2. More Than This! I saw the book trailer for that one and can't wait to read it. I just finished A Monster Calls the other day and LOVED it. I hope this one is just as good.

    The Ocean at the End of the Lane is great! It's very Neil. :)

    Enjoy all your books!

  3. Wow! Looks like you got tons of awesome books <3 Hope you love them all!!!
    Happy reading

  4. Nice haul!! Far From You looks awesome. Enjoy your new books :)

  5. Looks like you got some really good ones this week. Happy reading!

  6. I must admit that I am not a huge Neil Gaiman fan (scandalous, I know); I read all of his books and then there is something always missing for me. Anyway, I loved The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

  7. Oh I have to go shopping...

  8. I am incredibly jealous that you bought More Than This. That cover is frickin' gorgeous.
