Book Haul, or the One with the Happy Haul-idays!

WOO pun titles ftw! Happy holidays, everybody! Happy winter, Christmas, Chanukah, Festivus, Chrismukkah, Kwanzaa, and any and all holidays or non-holidays you celebrate! Happy Saturday, aka the high holiest of days!

I originally filmed a vlog because this is a particularly EPIC haul that deserves documentation in video form, but my camera decided to be a major Grinch and film without sound (or maybe it was tired of hearing me shriek over the AWESOME BOOKS and just gave up living). So we're going with regular old pictures today for my first book haul in about a month.

  1. WOW, Gillian! This is an EPIC haul! That's so exciting that you got a Court of Thorns and Roses - I hope you enjoy it! I really want to read Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods, The Conspiracy of Us and Cruel Beauty.

  2. Woooohoooo!! What an awesome haul Gillian!!

    Enjoy all the new books!! Darn that camera, I would have loved to hear your exclamations of joy at the books, cause they are worth being exclaimed for!!

  3. Oooh this is an awesome haul. So many great books there. I am SO EXCITED for A Court of Thorns and Roses. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW. I hope you enjoy it :)

  4. I am SOOOOOOOOOO jealous that you have Lion Heart. I read Lady Thief immediately after it came out and instantly regretted it because I then had to wait another year for the final book and I NEED IT IN MY LIFE NOW! I hope you enjoy it! Looks like you have lots of awesome books to dive into.

  5. So many great books this week!! I've been wanting to read the Scarlet series for awhile now, and I think that since the last book is coming out within the next few months I'll finally start it. And a Court of Thorns and Roses?! AH. Stop. Cannot wait to hear what you think of all these books.

  7. Happy Holidays!!! I hope you had an awesome holiday. You sure have an epic book haul this week :) I'm excited for A Court of Thorns and Roses, The Orphan Queen, The Walls Around Us, Emmy & Oliver and The Night We Said Yes. Cannot wait to hear what you think of all these books. I hope you have a great Happy New Year xoxo
