Book Hauls

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:

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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!
