Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 5/11 - 5/24

Daisy's Book Haul

-It Takes a Scandal by Caroline Linden: I really like Caroline Linden's writing, so I had to order this one!
-The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle: I LOVED When You Were Mine and this sounds like it has heartbreaking potential.
-Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton: I've been eyeing this ever since it came out, so I decided to finally order it.
-The Dressmaker by Posie Graeme-Evans: it has a female dressmaker in Victorian London and romance and intrigue and YES PLEASE!
-Pegasus by Robin McKinley: I've been eyeing this for a LONG time as well and it's Robin McKinley, I don't really need another reason.
-Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg: this sounds really cute and I forever be drawn to Pride and Prejudice retellings!
-One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez: so I admit that my buying this was triggered by the author's recent passing, but I really loved Love In the Time of Cholera. Also, the cashier totally fangirled over it at the check-out, which was kinda awesome :) I love seeing fellow book-people work in bookstores!
-The Unexpected Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell: I LOVE Jill Mansell so when I saw this at the local bookstore I just HAD to buy it. Obviously.
-Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer: I spotted this on someone's TTT comparing it to Hart of Dixie and as I'm having major Zade-withdrawal, I'm gonna use this to try and make the wait a little less excruciating. And also I'm gonna marathon watch the show again.
-Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson: I keep hearing all these amazing things about her writing and decided I needed in on it.

Egalley for Review:
-The Stepsister's Tale by Tracy Barrett: I love stories from a different POV, so Cinderella from the POV of the 'evil' stepsister sounds right up my alley!
-Awkwardly Ever After by Marni Bates: I really like the 2 books in this series I've read so far.
-Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld: a book in a book! Sounds awesome!
-Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis: Snow White retelling! YES!
-The Agincourt Bride
and The Tudor Bride by Joanna Hickson: the story of Catherine de Valois, I've never read much about her before, so this is perfect!
-Winning Miss Wakefield by Vivienne Lorret: this will be perfect when I need to get my romance on :)
-The Fall of Grace by Julia London: I love this plot thing when two people who are already married fall in love.
-Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini: I am beyond excited because OMG I LOVED her Unearthly series and I cannot wait to read this new series!


  1. I'm curious about Darkness Becomes Her.
    Wow, so many books from Netgalley! ;-)

  2. What a haul! I look forward to your thoughts on Pegasus; I haven't read it yet. (I own it, but I keep waiting for the sequel... and waiting....) Enjoy all your lovely new books!

  3. I just took Since You've Been Gone out from the library. It looks so good!

  4. Darkness Becomes Her has been on my wishlist since the first time I saw it. I really want to read One Hundred Years of Solitude!

    Cheers :)

  5. Great Book Haul! Hope you enjoy all your reads!


  6. There are so many books on this list that I want to read I literally almost can't stand it! Thanks for all the good ideas.
