Book Hauls

Book Haul #10

book haul 10Rick Riordan – The House Of Hades
Lauren DeStefano – Wither
Lindsay Ribar – The Art Of Wishing
Julia Hoban – Willow
Nancy Werlin – Extraordinary
Kieran Scott – Geek Magnet

Remember how last week I said I was going to control my book buying? (x) Well, it’s like some unknown force is telling me ‘No, Hazel, you need to go buy books’ because our local bookstore, Fullybooked, announced a super discounted sale! Would you believe I got a hardback copy of Wither, Extraordinary, and Willow for about Php100 ($2)? And Geek Magnet was just Php50 ($1) so I grabbed it without second thought! Ahh, I swear- I just can’t resist sales! (The sale is still ongoing and I’m so tempted to go back again.)

House of Hades was released this week (x) and I got a copy as soon as it was out! I’m already done reading, actually. IT WAS HELLA AWESOME, you guys. I’ve been looking for a copy of The Art Of Wishing ever since I read Jen’s review. So when I spotted it at the store, even though it wasn’t on sale, I just had to buy. I actually received some book mail this week too but I think I’ll reserve them for next week’s haul instead!

What awesome books did you get this week?




  1. Girl, do not be ashamed for buying books that are THAT cheap! I wouldn’t be able to resist, either! I remember really enjoying both Wither and Extraordinary when I read them a long time ago. Gaaah, I saw your fangirl tweets of HoH on Twitter so I really need to get started on that series! Lovely haul, Hazel! Happy reading :)

    1. Yey I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed those two, Jen! I actually have no clue what to expect in these books but I’ve heard the authors are good so I just dove right in and got the copies. Hehe, I’d be embarrassed about my too fangirly tweets but really, I loved it so much! Hope you love the books as much as I do! Thanks for dropping by, Jen! :D

  2. The Art of Wishing looks super cool, and omg I’ve heard amazing things about House of Hades! Too bad I haven’t read ANY of the Percy Jackson books. I own the first 5 though. Will read it next year. LOL. Great haul :D

  3. Is there anything better than a book sale!? I don’t blame you at all – For those prices I would have done the exact same thing :D What an extraordinary deal!

    Wow, I’m so flattered that my review was one of the things that convinced you to pick up The Art of Wishing, Hazel. Thank you! I promise you won’t be disappointed. It was such a lovely surprise and remains one of the most memorable books I’ve read in 2013 :D I can only hope you’ll enjoy it, too!

  4. Ah, book sales always get me too! It seems the week I finally decide to put myself on a book buying ban, all these great deals pop up. But it’s all good because I love buying new books, lol. :D

    I’ve been wanting to read The Chemical Garden series for a while now! I can’t wait to see what you think of Wither :) I hope you enjoy all the books you got this week!
