Yayyy, book hauls! I missed doing these. I haven't done one of these in aaaages, since way before ALA. I had been planning to do one for ALA, but I got SO. MANY. BOOKS. that the idea of linking them all and typing them up was intensely stressful, so I ended up not doing one, and then weeks passed and lo, no book hauls. And yet I was getting books, so I really I was just being a big lazy fail. (If you are interested in what my ALA book haul was, I Instagrammed my haul here and here.)
Rather than list every book I've bought/been given/received for review in the interim, I'll hit the recent highlights. Because it's been a lot and, erm, I've forgotten. Also I've been very busy GETTING SHELVES and moving the cumbersome contents of my beastly book Himalayas into them after PUTTING THEM TOGETHER MYSELF which is frankly beyond my skillset so it took a lot of effort and swearing and coffee...my point being, all my books are newly organized so it's even harder now to remember which are new.
Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George
Shadows of Sherwood by Kekla Magoon
A finished copy of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir PLUS A SWORD Okay, it's a letter opener, really, but I HAVE A SWORD FEAR MY WRATH (remind me to tell you guys about the time I was seven and my brother accidentally stabbed me in the mouth with a letter opener when we were pretend dueling) (or does it suddenly become actual dueling when one of you draws blood?)
