Broke and Bookish Book Haul for 2/1 - 2/14

Daisy's Book Haul

-The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: I think I might own this in Dutch already or it's gotten lost in my parents' house somewhere, but after watching the movies, I really want to read this, cause when I tried it the first time years ago, I just couldn't get through it, so maybe this pretty version will be enough motivation to actually do it.
-The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy by Julia Quinn: Julia Quinn is awesome, of course I bought this latest release.
-Catch a Falling Heiress by Laura Lee Guhrke: same goes for Laura Lee Guhrke, I really love her books!
-The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon: So I've read this already, but it's AMAZING and I needed my own shiny hardcover!

Egalleys for review:
-Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone: I'm always intrigued by mental illness, and I've heard amazing things about Tamara Ireland Stone's writing, so I'm excited for this one!
-The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey: YAYYYY!!! I'm so excited for this!! It sounds awesome :)
-Forever For a Year by B.T. Gottfred: this sounds like it has a real possibility of breaking my heart, I'm SO in!
-Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson: steampunk isn't usually my go-to genre, but this sounds really interesting and I really like Shanna Swendson's writing.


  1. The Hobbit is a great story. I read it years ago for a fantasy literature class and really enjoyed it.

  2. I loved the Hobbit when I was younger. The Mime Order looks really good.

  3. I haven't read the Hobbit or watched the movie yet, but I've heard good things about it, so I hope you enjoy it! The Mime Order sounds fantastic! Great haul!

  4. I need to read The Hobbit! We have a very worn copy(the cover's missing) because my dad and my brother have handled it so many times. I don't why I keep putting it off! Hope you enjoy it, and all your other books.

    Happy reading,

  5. Aaah, I want The Girl at Midnight but haven't had any response to my request, alas. Not even a no! I hope you enjoy it, anyway.

  6. That is a gorgeous edition of The Hobbit!
    And I agree with you on Mime Order, I will definitely need to add that to my shelf at some point, but it will need to be in paperback to match its partner otherwise it will drive me crazy!
