Jessie's June Book Haul

Thursday, June 26, 2014
Hi everyone! I have a pretty decent sized haul going on today. That said, it's not quite as bad as my usual. This is a haul for all of June! BEA gave me so many books, my hauls are going to be on the small(er) side for a while.


That said, here they are. 

These are my B&N-had-a-Hachette-sale buys:

Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty (Shambling Guides #2) - loved the cheeky, fun first one 

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie (Imperial Radch #1) - great reviews, often favorable compared to the Paradox books.

The Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron/Rachel Bach (Eli Monpress #1-3) - this woman wrote the Paradox books. I need all her books.

My Ryan-took-me-to-Half-Price Books-haul:

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen (Brian's Saga #1) -- childhood favorite for less than a $1. Can't resist.

Sister by Rosamund Lupton -- not for me. Already read it and this is an author I just don't fare well with.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith -- marked down to $2 and it sounds cute/good.

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (Rebel Belle #1) --- that cover speaks to my soul. Plus it was $7 for a hardcover.

The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich -- for a TLC Book Tour later this summer. Thanks, William Morrow books.

Zodiac by Romina Russell -- Lili from Lili's Refelctions was awesome enough to send me this when I missed a copy at BEA. Greatly appreciated, lady!


The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh O'Brien -- this was sent to me from Steph for a Cuddlebuggery review!

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (The Grisha #3) -- this book was four days late and then I read it in 6 hours. I am still Not Okay. (The book was fabulous but now I have no more Grisha booooooooooks.) (STURMHOND)

Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman (Prisoner of Night and Fog #1) -- I've already read this as an ARC and but I needed a physical copy. 

My Strange-Chemistry-is-shutting-down-omg-buy-all-their-books haul:

Shadowplay by Laura Lam (Micah Grey #2) -- I loved Pantomime. There's no way I would not find out what happens next!

The Wizard's Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Hannah's Duology #1) -- Loved the cover, intrigued by the story. It was conceived and pitched as a duology so the fact the second (The Nobleman's Revenge) might not be published is troubling.

The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Assassin's Curse #1) - another book I read and loved as an ARC. Plus the cover is amaaazing.

The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Assassin's Curse #2) -- I have to see what happens after book one. Plus, another case of CRC getting great, original covers.


I have a few more Strange Chemistry books I need to pick up (57 Lives of Alex Wayfare, Stolen Songbird, Featherbound) and if you're interested in any, I would grab them before it's too late.


  1. I love that this is a smallish haul and I LOVE that we got six of the same books this month. Someday our evolution into brain twins will be complete. (Thank you AGAIN for the birthday gifts.)

    Love the covers for Rebel Belle and Paper Valentine, I've had my eye on both. I can't believe you have a place that sells hardcovers for $7! I picked up Statistical Probability a couple of months ago, I love the blurb!

  2. I'm sorry, I just realized how many times I said love in that comment. I'm clearly too chipper today to be posting on the internet.

  3. You got Zodiac??! JELLY!!


    Awesome haul, girl!

  4. I really have to buy The Legend of Eli Monpress set. Rachel Aaron is pretty amazing! I'm super excited for The Vault of Dreamers and I have got to make time for Ruin & Rising, what am I DOING. lol Happy reading!
