Book Haul #20: Hello, Summer Reads

Happy sunday, everyone! The week has gone by extremely fast but many good things have come out of it, at least for me.  Firstly, I’m done with my summer classes, which means I’m finally on break. Just for like, two weeks. In celebration, I did some book shopping since I hadn’t bought any books yet this month at all until this week! Check out the books I recently bought and received:

Leila Howland – Nantucket Blue
Kieran Scott – Only Everything
Huntley Fitzpatrick – What I Thought Was True
Morgan Matson – Since You’ve Been Gone

book haul 20 for review

For review

Lisa Glass – Blue
Nick Lace – Hostage Three

20344869 20652560

Chantel Guertin – Depth Of Field
Jessica Park – Flat Out Celeste

It’s been a long time since I shared the ebooks/eARCs I’ve gotten and I’ve long since accumulated more than a few but Depth Of Field and Flat-Out Celeste are the most recent. I’ve actually been avoiding Netgalley (my ratio is horrific enough) so I’ve not been requesting eARCs much, really. I still have a lot of physicals to review and I’m trying to balance.

Anyway, I’m so excited about the books I bought this week- they feel perfect for my short summer break! I got the first four last Tuesday when I visited the bookstore and then Since You’ve Been Gone the day after. I started reading SYBG the day I got it- I’m too eager for my own good, I know- and I loved it completely! (Check out my review for it, if you haven’t!) I’ve already decided to read Only Everything next, because Kieran Scott’s post for Ah-MAY-zing Reads got me completely excited for it!

Speaking of Ah-MAY-zing Reads, we have one week to go for the event! Which means the twitter party is fast approaching! *shimmies* Be there on May 30th 9PM EDT, okay?

How was your week? Which books did you get/read recently?

    Great haul! I won Blue by Lisa Glass through Goodreads. It hasn’t arrived yet but I hear it’s very good so I’m excited! I hope you enjoy it too. And I’d love to hear what you’ll think of Love and Other Foreign Words as well! That book looks really interesting.

    I recently bought a copy of Since You’ve Been Gone too, and I’m so excited to devour it! And I just about freaked out when I saw Love and Other Foreign Words on your stack!

    I love your photo of the books! Plus, I really like a lot of the books on the summer reading pile you’ve made. Happy reading!

    Beautiful photos as always, Hazel! I’m loving the spines of the books that you bought! Personally, I got my hands on a copy of Since You’ve Been Gone, which I’m very eager to read, no doubt due to your review!

    *flails* I didn’t know Flat Out Celeste was out this week!!! *scrambles for extra quarters* I NEED IT. But wait – paperback comes out next week. Okay, I can wait. Just one more week. Awww now I’m all happy ^_^

    Great haul…this week I didn’t get much. I downloaded a few free ones from Amazon…but nothing REALLY exciting. I have started the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children though!!! It has been awesome so far :)

  13. Georgie @ What She Reads on May 26, 2014 at 4:39 am

    This s a great haul Hazel, I’m currently listening to Since you’ve Been Gone on audio and I’m loving it so much! I need to get What I Thought Was True, I love that the spine matches My Life Next Door. Would love to know your thoughts on Depth of Field (AWESOME COVER!)

  14. Prima on May 26, 2014 at 7:43 am

    All of the books look really pretty but Only Everything takes the cake for the best! I’ve just recently finished What I Thought Was True and I can’t wait to see your thoughts on it :D

  15. Danielle on May 26, 2014 at 8:19 am

    Oooo so many pretty books and almost all on my TBR! Since You’ve Been Gone is one I have been coveting in particular and really want to read Nantucket Blue! Hope you enjoy! x

  16. Erin Sebastian on May 27, 2014 at 9:27 am

    I’m actually looking for Only Everything by Kieran Scott in our local bookstore! It looks really nice. I’ve seen your review, and I think it’s worth reading. :)

  17. Michelle on May 27, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    Wow, great post! You’re so lucky to have those books! <3 I really need to read Nantucket Blue and Love and Other Foreign Words!

    Looks like it’s officially summer in Bookish world! I’ve had a copy of Since You’ve Been Gone kicking around for a while, but have been saving it for a hot day with a smoothie and bare feet. Can’t wait to read your thoughts. Huntley Fitzpatrick is a new surprise favorite of mine: My Life Next Door was really wonderful, and I got to hear her reading from What I Thought Was True kind of recently. The passage she chose was really sweet and funny, so I hope the rest is just as good. Happy summer reading!
