Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 4/27 - 5/10

Daisy's Book Haul

Bought and gifts:
I met up with a couple of awesome bloggers: Karin, Kat, Celine, Judith and one awesome booktuber Lisa. We had lunch, obviously went book shopping and traded some books :)
-Dark Lady's Chosen by Gail Z. Martin: bought this when I was shopping with my fellow book people because it was way cheap and I own the first two books in the series.
-The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: so everyone is talking about this and I want in on it.
-Between the Devil and Ian Eversea by Julie Anne Long: I really like Julie Anne Long's writing and had to have her next release.
-Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson: I'm trying to read more epic fantasy series and this one sounds really good!
-Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George: I LOVED the first book in this series and had to have the sequel.
-Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae: this sounds SO cute! I love stories set in Italy!
-Dark Lover by J.R. Ward: so I know miss Kelly will be happy to see this in my haul! I hope to love it as much as the rest of the bookloving world does!
-Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: there's a whole load of controversy around this one, but I'm still really curious!
-The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafón: I LOVE this man's writing and needed to own this book as well!
-Delirium Stories by Lauren Oliver: I've only read Delirium and still need to read the other books, but Judith brought this to the meet up and I snagged it, thanks Judith!
-Little Women and Me by Lauren Baratz-Logsted: I've been wanting to read this ever since it first showed up on my radar a couple months before release and I'm so happy Karin brought it all the way from Austria for me!
-The Hero's Guide To Being and Outlaw by Christopher Healy: LOVED the first book in the series, it was so funny!

Egalleys for Review:
-Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot: rich people's drama. Yes I am intrigued!
-Blackbird by Anna Carey: this sounds REALLY exciting and I like Anna Carey's writing.
-Stray by Elissa Sussman: the Order of Fairy Godmothers. Do I really need to say more?
-Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch: Winter is coming (back)!
-Get Even by Gretchen McNeil: I'm kinda digging the whole Robin Hood theme of getting revenge for other people.
-Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios: a story about a jinni! I hope this will be awesome!
-Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker: this sounds pretty scary, but exciting!
-Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby: this sounds romantic and sweet and just YES!
-Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane: I always find myself tuning into the news when it's about a missing person and I wonder what happened and what's the real story behind it, so this book sounds right up my alley.
-Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis: new YA fantasy by a fellow Dutch lady, OBVIOUSLY I'm reading this!
-Unwept by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman: these two wrote the Dragonlance series and I'm curious about their new paranormal series!
-Make It Count by Megan Erickson: I'm digging the whole new adult college thing going on and I like a tutor turning into something more story! Who knew math could be sexy?
-The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin: Sisi is a historical figure that fascinates me, so I'm excited to read this book!


  1. I was so tempted by Unwept, but resisted for now. I loved Dragonlance Chronicles :D And just because I got to get a book signed and met him, Tracy is actual Laura's husband ;-)

    1. Oh, whoops! Should do a little more research before I call people ladies... Fixed it though, thanks! ;)

  2. I am really curious about Dorothy Must Die. I can't wait to hear what you think about it.

  3. I can't wait to read your reviews about these books! The Rosie Project is wonderful, have fun with that!

  4. I just recently read Dark Lover and entered the BDB myself. SO WORTH IT! If I wasn't trying to work my way through my current TBR shelves, I'd be snatching up the rest of the series!

  5. I'm really looking forward to Otherbound, looks good! Happy reading!

  6. I hope "doroty must die" arrives Soon in Italy!! I love Carlos Ruiz Zafon and i want read soon Lauren Oliver's books!

  7. I must be the only reader who didn't like The Rosie Project!

  8. Great haul, Blackbird sounds interesting but I am trying really hard to resist :)
