Book Haul #26: This Is Not A Birthday Haul


Meet Sir Teddy, guardian of the books. LOL.

You guys know I celebrated my birthday earlier this week and you might have expected a birthday book haul. But no, this isn’t my birthday haul and there probably isn’t going to be one. I think I’ve exhausted my book shopping quota for the month especially after MIBF, and now with this- I think I got enough books this month to make me happy and satisfied for a long while.
A list of the books I got:

Book Mail
Alice in Zombieland
Words and Their Meanings
Nobody But Us
Fall for Anything

ARCs For Review
In a Handful of Dust
The Invisible
The Strange and Ever After

(Thank you, Harper Collins Intl!)

Bought from NBS Sale
A Little Something Different
Out of the Easy
The One
Touching the Surface

Only Everything (Signed)
Complete Nothing (Signed)

(Thank you, Kieran Scott and Miel!)

Still pretty sweet, right? I thankfully got several books in the mail throughout the month- for review, payment for my design services, and prizes I won. The books I bought were actually pre-birthday so they don’t really count as a birthday haul either. I think I might just save my birthday money for my travel fund, actually.

Anyway- have you guys read any of these yet? Which books did you get this week?

    I have Not a Drop to Drink on My Kindle and will probably get In a Handful of Dust when I am ready to read so I can just continue on with the story. Really nice haul, Hazel. :)

      I also have Not A Drop to Drink but have yet to read it! Thanks, LaLa. <3

    Wow that’s lot of awesome books! The ones that caught my eye immediately was Complete Nothing and Only Everything. They have such gorgeous spines! I also got A Little Something Different this week and I’ve only read 2 chapters and it’s been really good so far!

      I know! I’m so excited about all of them- I’m totally going to binge read once I’m on my semestral break. So glad you’re enjoying A Little Something Different! That was such a cute book. :)

    I love the colors of your book haul, Hazel! Where did you get your copy of A Little Something Different? I’ve been wandering in different NBS branches but I can’t find a single copy! Hahaha

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 27, 2014 at 8:53 am

      It is pretty colourful, yeah! I got it at NBS MOA but I think you can find it at Fullybooked too! :D

    Words and Their Meanings is one I keep intending to look at more closely; I hope you enjoy it! Lovely haul :D Sir Teddy is adorable ;)

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 28, 2014 at 12:13 am

      Thanks, Kayla! :D I’ve been excited about Words and Their Meanings since I first heard about it! It sounds like such an emotional roller coaster and I love those kind of books. I’ll let you know how it goes when I get to read it! :)

    Can’t wait to read reviews for these books. I have read The One and I liked it.

    Happy belated birthday, Hazel! I’ve got Alice in Zombieland somewhere on my TBR pile (but it’s not a priority). I’m definitely curious about what you’ll think of it! I had a bit of restraint this week and only picked up three books…One of which was Dance of Shadows which, for the first time in FOREVER, I just bought on the whim, without checking ANY reviews. I’m hoping that it wasn’t the wrong decision (because that cover is just stunning)!

    Ahhhhh too many books! And you’re so lucky! Congrats on winning! :)

    In a handful of dust was amazing :D I should check out Something strange and deadly, I’ve heard great things about the series and conclusion. Happy reading!
