Like I said last time, I'm a lucky girl and have wonderful people in my life who buy me books for my birthday :) My mom got me these:
-Sabriel by Garth Nix
Lirael by Garth Nix
Abhorsen by Garth Nix: the beautiful boxed set of The Abhoren Trilogy! I'm so excited!! People keep telling me how amazing this series is :D
-The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle: I've heard a lot of good things about Lauren Myracle's Shine and this sounded like it could be my kind of book!
-Five Summers by Una LaMarche: because seriously, I love books about friendships. Even if they're falling apart, because that's life and not every friendship lasts forever. Also: SUMMER CAMP! EEE!
-Relativity by Cristin Bishara: because look at the gorgeous cover!! And I'm fascinted by alternate realities!
-Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: I owned the whole series in English, except for this one and now I can blisfully stare at my beautiful complete set! :D

You're probably not reading this, but thank you so much mom!!

-Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn: I'm slowly making my way through Julia Quinn's backlist :) It is awesome!
-Unbreakable by Kami Garcia: Ancient. Secret. Society. That's all.
-A Radiant Sky by Jocelyn Davies: I started this series way back when the first book was released and have yet to find the time to actually continue with it. But I want to!!
-De Laatste Zomer by Tatiana de Rosnay: Dutch version of A Secret Kept, I keep hearing amazing things about her books and it was a total bargain!
-The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima: so I haven't started this series yet, but I LOVED her Seven Realms series and obviously I needed to own this. And it is SO PRETTY!
-Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano: I loved Wither! And this new series sounds really exciting :)

-A Gentleman 'Til Midnight by Alison DeLaine: A LADY CAPTAIN! YES!
-One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern: her books are a bit hit or miss for me, but this sounds like it has a lot of potential!

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. Five Summers looks really good! I love summer books AND friendship books!

    I also got an ARC of Panic this week ... I can't wait to read it!

    Happy belated birthday! Enjoy all the books. :)

  2. Amazing haul! Here is my small haul:

  3. Goodness that's a lot of books. It's a good thing there are two of you! I bought Unbreakable this past week, but haven't started it yet. I am trying to read more of the ebooks that have been sitting on my ereader for forever first.

    Ten by Gretchen McNeil is very good.

  4. I got Infinite Moment in my haul, too! Ten is great and Dear Killer sounds amazing! DK was written by a teen author, right?

    My IMM

  5. You got a fantastic book haul! :)

  6. I love Divergent and Insurgent and can't wait to get Allegiant to see how the series wraps up!!

  7. That is a serious amount of books and a lot of awesome ones at that! Enjoy them all!

    Tammy @ Bo's Book Nook
