Well….yet another book haul. There will probably be another within the next few days, let’s be honest. Barnes and Noble knows I’m trying to cut back, so they send me a 20% off coupon. Figures.

Anyway, I was super excited to receive all these. I’ve heard some pretty great things about each! Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Leave a comment, I’d love to know what you thought!

If you’re interested, she does sell her jars on Etsy!  Her shop can be found here:

She does beautiful work and ships quickly.  It’s a gorgeous gift for any bookworm (trust me, I adore mine).

Hooray! A book haul! I’ve been waiting for my mail order books to come in so I could do them all at once but….I got impatient.

Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire
The cover for this is so unique, I fell in love with it just for that.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I’ve heard such fantastic things about this book, I simply had to get myself a copy and check it out!

H2O by Virginia Bergin
The book jacket actually has cut outs and the undressed hardback has words in the shape of a raindrop. Trust me, one of the coolest covers.

Half Bad by Sally Green
This has been on my to-buy list for a very long time – got excited when I saw it hanging out at Barnes and Noble!

Have you guys bought any books lately?!

3 April 2015


Well, I absolutely did not intend to buy even MORE books, but go figure, I did. Barnes & Nobel certainly knows that all they have to do to get me in the door is simply send me a 20% off one item and I’ll absolutely buy more than one.

This round, I was planning on grabbing The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige, however of course while looking for it more than that caught my eye and I left with 10 new books rather than just one.

The books I purchased on this unplanned excursion are:

Blind by Rachel DeWoskin

Painless by S.A. Harazin

Down From the Mountain by Elizabeth Fixmer

The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

Me Being Me is Exactly as Insane as You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

The Minnow by Diana Sweeney

I’ve got such an incredibly long list of books now on my to-read shelves that I am doing my best to stop buying more in such large quantities and instead work on lowering the number of books I own that I have yet to even crack open.

Thanks for reading guys! And don’t forget to follow the blog so you never miss another of my inevitable massive book hauls.

1 April 2015


So I didn’t buy more books….APRIL FOOLS. I DID.

My haul from FINALLY arrived, and I am so excited to get my hands on these babies.  I received 26 books (13 Hardcover, 13 paperback – completely unplanned for it to be even.)  I spent $84.49 on the actual books and $15.99 on shipping, making my total $100.48.

That’s an average of $3.86 PER BOOK.  INCLUDING SHIPPING!!

I will absolutely be checking before I head out to the bookstore from now on.  It was so so worth it.

I also got a few autographed copies, which I’ll absolutely be taking advantage of in the future, seeing as I know they have that as an option with some of their books.

I bought books from their Scratch & Dent section as well as their regular section and honestly guys, I’m not kidding, I have to look at the invoice to see which ones were ‘damaged’.  Because trust me – they aren’t.

Lux, A Little Something Different and Loser were the 3 books I purchased from the Scratch and Dent section and the only thing wrong with any of them is the following:
Lux – Had 12 pages that had the bottom corner bent.  12.
A Little Something Different had the back bottom corner of the copy bent.  Not even noticeable.
Loser had that TINY tear in the binding that you can see in the photo.

All of the issues with the scratch and dent copies are easily fixed/ignored and honestly worth the ADDITIONAL discount you receive on them.  I was amazed, I honestly thought the covers would be half torn off for such a price reduction.  But honestly, I mix them in with the rest of my books, and you can’t even tell.

AND NOW FOR THE HAUL…what exactly DID I get?

How to (un)Cage a Girl by Francesca Lia Block

Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab

A Crack in the Sky by Mark Peter Hughes

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Unleashed (The Wolf Spring Chroncles) by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

The Storm Before Atlanta by Karen Schwabach

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn

Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

Wish by Joseph Monninger

Starters by Lisa Price

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall

LUX (Beginnings) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Loser by Jerry Spinelli

The Fortune of Carmen Navarro by Jen Bryant

Wicked Sweet by Mar’ce Merrell

Eve & Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Sea Change by S.M. Wheeler

A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley

Orchards by Holly Thompson (autographed)

Brutal by Michael Harmon

The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Ink is Thicker Than Water by Amy Spalding (autographed)

I absolutely recommend checking out to anyone who is looking for books at a great discount!  It’s so convenient and it MAY take a little bit of searching as all the titles aren’t categorized as easily as you’d think, but keep an eye in the Recommended Titles bar when surfing the site, and feel free to search by Author or Title in the search bar!  Who knows?  They might have exactly what you’re looking for.  😉

14 march 2015


Well I finally have a book haul to blog about! Most of you don’t know this, but I was in a car accident during the last big snow storm we had here in New England, and I haven’t had my car for over two weeks. I am ‘supposed’ to get it back on Monday, but who knows. Bottom line, Insurance is picking up the tab on MOST of it, since it wasn’t my fault, but of course the repair shop found things that weren’t a cause for the accident and blah blah blah, it’s been a very stressful past few weeks. BUT. I went out today and bought these babies as a pick-me-up to myself. A lot of them were on my wishlist and have been for a while, so it was nice to finally have them.

The books I bought are the following, in no particular order:

Hush: An Irish Princess’ Tale by Donna Jo Napoli
I read The Smile by Donna Jo Napoli and it is absolutely one of my favorite books.  I’m hoping I adore this one just as much.

The Treatment by Suzanne Young
FINALLY I HAVE THE SEQUEL TO THE PROGRAM.  I loved The Program.  Like, loved loved loved it.  So I can finally read the next segment!! YAY!

Seed by Lisa Heathfield
The description of this really reminded me of Gated, which I really enjoyed.  So I’m hoping I like it just as much!

Compulsion by Martina Boone
Not even going to exaggerate, I think it was the word ‘plantation’ that caught my eye.  I’ve had an idea for a novel involving a plantation for years, so I am really curious to read this and see what it’s about.  Once I got past the one word that caught my eye, the book description seemed really intriguing!

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
I have seen so many fantastic things about this book on Bookstagram, that I had to finally grab it and try it out for myself.  And honestly, the cover is gorgeous.  Who could blame me?

Landry Park by Bethany Hagen
The old cover caught my eye.  But this revamped cover?  Had to grab it.

Winger by Andrew Smith
When I visited my book conference in November of 2013, this book had yet to come out and was one of the Advanced Copies they were giving out in our book boxes.  They limited the number to about 100 for over 1000 conference go-ers, so you can imagine we were all a little disappointed we didn’t receive it when all we heard about for a good chunk of one of the conference days was how fantastic it was.  Basically, I’m still sad I didn’t get Andrew Smith’s autograph.  But I’m super excited to finally have this book and check it out!

I currently own and have to read 300 books.  The order in which I read/review them is completely random so….these may or may not take a while.  Oops.  I should probably stop buying more but there are worse things I could be spending my money on.
