Jen's Book Haul (69)

I decided to shorten the title to Book Haul. I'm lazy. Inspired by memes hosted at The Story Siren and Tynga's Reviews.

I didn't buy any books this week and I'm getting over a sinus, upper respiratory, and ear infection which left me practically incapacitated for a couple days. However, the UPS man did manage to make me feel a little better with these beautifuls.

For Review
Penguin, I bow to you. Thank you x infinity forever. Also, I'm sorry for scaring my cats and husband when this arrived. No, that wasn't a seizure.

I've never read anything by Francesca, but this look absolutely enthralling! Thank you, Macmillan!

I just finished Shadow and Bone like, yesterday. And holy effing crap, am I glad I have this baby on hand. Again, Macmillan, you rock my world.

On Makeshift Bookmark this past week...

Monday: Find out why Robin Benway's ALSO KNOWN AS has me dancing to "Bulletproof" by La Roux (and help yourself to your own little dance party.)
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday features some 2013 Debuts that are vital to my existence.
Wednesday: Click here! Look here! Win UNREMEMBERED by Jessica Brody!
Thursday: I reviewed Tiger Lily and included a rather awesome GIF of Tinkerbell throwing the bitchface.

Have a fabulous week, all!


  1. OMGOMGOMG Seige and Storm! So freaking jealous!!! O_O Seriously. I drooled a little. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the blurb of Love in the Time of Global Warming, but the cover is certainly gorgeous (and unique!).

    Have an amazing week. :)

  2. I got Siege and Storm this week too. I'm sooooo excited to read it!

  3. Yeah, I think there's a little drool on my screen, what with Siege and Storm AND Indigo Spell. Enjoy them!

  4. You got Siege and Storn & The Indigo Spell! I'm so jealous! Have fun reading them both! :D

  5. So lucky you are to get The Indigo Spell. I would have killed to have gotten that. Nice haul.


  6. Great haul, Jen! I cannot wait to read Siege and Storm, and I love the cover of Love in the Time of Global Warming, I really want to read that one too!

  7. Some really nice books! I haven't read the first ones but I'm hoping to soon. Happy reading!

  8. OMG I am ugly with jealousy right now over that ARC of Siege and Storm. I LOVED Shadow and Bone and cannot believe I have to wait (what feels like) an eternity until that book gets released. I hope you love it!

    I also just finished The Golden Lily - just in time for Indigo Spell. I'm a big fan of Richelle Mead so I expect nothing short of AWESOME.

    Happy Reading!! my StS

  9. GAH I am SO JEALOUS. I need INDIGO SPELL so so so so so bad.

  10. I will never not be jealous of The Indigo Spell even though I get to borrow and even though I will be ordering it.

    HUZZAH SEIGE AND STORM. Dude, wasn't the package it came in totally pretty?

    I just read Pink Smog by Francesca Lia Block last weekend and quite enjoyed it. I hope her new one is good as well. :-)

  11. Yay for The Indigo Spell, Richelle knows how to write a great book/series! I hope you feel better now :)

  12. Seige & Storm- oh man. Super jelly.

  13. Great books this week, Jen. I can't wait for my copy of The Indigo Spell to get here. Happy reading.

    Have a great weekend :)

  15. I'm so jealous you have Siege and Storm. Do you fancy giving it to me when you've done? ;)

    Check out My Haul! Letterbox Love!

  16. Siege and Storm is everywhere this week. Need to read the first book. Hear such amazing things and I am soooooo jealous over the Indigo Spell. Happy reading!

  17. I bought Shadow and Bone last year but I still have to read it. It sounds really good though and I'm super excited! I hope you enjoy everything. :)

  18. You have such a great haul this week! I have yet to read the Bloodlines series or Shadow and Bone but they all look great!
    Check out my IMM/ STS!

  19. Nice haul! I heard Siege and Storm was really good. Happy reading! :)

  20. Ooh, enjoy Siege and Storm! I'm looking forward to reading Shadow & Bone soon, as I've been hearing great things about that one.

  21. Pretty books this week! I hope you enjoy everything!

  22. Francesca was one of my favorite writers growing up, and even my sister, who is not much of a bookworm at all, loved her stories. I actually had no idea this was coming out (she also just released an adult novel) so I'm going to add it to my list and eagerly await your review.

    Hope things are going well with you!
