Book Haul, or the One With All the Catch-Up




Not to be confused with ketchup. (Or catsup, if you're weird) (No offense) (but honestly, catsup?)

So I filmed a vlog which was obviously the greatest vlog to ever be filmed... and then it got dumped. Whomp whomp. But it was actually less tragic and more serendipitous, since I then realized I'd left out a good chunk of the books I've gotten this week. And then I looked back even further and realized that I've forgotten to put a ton of books in my hauls this month, so this is the week where I go in a rectify past mistakes. I'm so good at lifing.

  1. A thousand pieces of you has such a pretty cover, I got a copy as well. I need to read The burning sky, this series has great covers too. Winterspell!! Bit jealous of that one, because I can't wait to read it :D I'm lucky enough to have an awesome bookish friend, so I got to borrow a copy from Mortal Heart <3 I love the packaging from Trial by fire.

    Happy reading!

  4. YEAH EDELWEISS. When I saw all the books Harper dumped on there I got really, really excited because I am super dorky like that.

    ALSO THAT ELEANOR & PARK EDITION. It makes me wish there was a Barnes & Noble close by. Alas.

    Happy reading!

    1. I KNOW! And they dumped them during BEA, so I was just book spoiling all over the place. SO MANY BOOKISH PRESENTS.

      And yeah, this E&P is GORGEOUS. I keep opening it up and stroking it.

  6. That's an amazing hall, Gillian! A Thousand Pieces of You, Top Ten Clues You're Clueless, and Winterspell are ones I can't wait to read! Also - Mortal Heart was amazing. Probably my favorite of the series.
    Happy reading!

  7. The Perilous Sea cover makes that book so worth having in print - must have in print!
