  1. Drooling over your book photo. So many and so organised. Me on the other hand XD Legend looks like a great book. I so need to pick up the series.

  2. I’ve heard of many of those books up there (and yeah, that’s a helluva lot of books!) but I really want to read something by Marie Lu (mainly want to read Legend). I’m also anticipating reading My True Love Gave To Me – I love short story compilations! They’re awesome :P

  3. I am so so so so excited for My Heart and Other Black Holes. I love the plot of it so much. It’s so unique. I’m excited for I Was Here too.

    I have both of the Vivian books! You wouldn’t happen to be interested in a buddy read for the two, would you? I’ve been meaning to read them, but I haven’t for whatever reason, library books mostly.

    I believe I won The Winner’s Curse, but I’m not positive.Nice job at buying Damsel Distressed, My True Love Gave To Me and The Young Elites. All three of those are high on my “Must obtain” list. Though I have the first two on hold at the library with the last one checked out.

    I received E-ARCS for Out of Control by Sarah Alderson and Dancing With Molly by Lena Horowitz.

  4. SO MANY BOOKS, HAZEL! :D What an exciting haul. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on I Was Here, The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl, the Vivian duology (?), The Book of Days, My True Love Gave to Me, The Young Elites and Lullabies. :) I’ve only read The Winner’s Curse out of the books you’ve hauled, and I found it to be an enjoyable read – I hope you do, too! I actually have an eARC of The Winner’s Crime and so far I’ve heard that it’s even better than its predecessor, so I’m looking forward to reading it next year. :)

  5. Can I just go over to your house, and then borrow I Was Here, My Heart and Other Black Holes, and The Incredible Adventures of Cinammon Girl? I’m just dying to read those, especially The Incredible Adventures. :D I’m all for incredible adventures! If I ever do go to your house, I suspect I would just end up staring at your bookshelf for forever.

    I can’t wait to see what great photos you’ll make of this haul.

  6. What a marvelous haul–so many lovely books! *squeals* (Also, that photo is fantastic!) I think it’s hilarious/awesome that you have both versions of My True Love Gave to Me; I’ve seen a lot of people saying they prefer this or that version, haha. I’ve got a copy of the US version that I’ve been saving to read during the Christmas season–I’m planning to get to that one very, very soon!

    I’ve also got I Was Here, The Book of Days, The Winner’s Curse, and the first Vivian Versus book on my to-read list, plus of course the Marie Lu books. :) What I’m saying is, you’ve got an awesome haul here, and I quite approve of most of your acquisitions! Happy reading!

  7. The Winner’s Curse, for sure, but also all the Marie Lu books! The Young Elites wasn’t quite as good as the Legend series, but that ending was killer. Champion will flay your soul into itty bitty little pieces, but it’s beautiful ;)

  8. I want that UK edition of My True Love Gave To Me!!! huhuhu! well it seems you have another busy month ahead more than the usual…coz of the Christmas holiday :)

  9. What a lovely book haul! I’ve read The Winner’s Curse, and while I didn’t love it as much as everyone else, it’s a series worth starting if only for the incredible book that follows. Also, I was very surprised by Burning Blue. It’s intense, but in a good way! And My True Love Gave to Me is lovely, and filled with holiday spirit. Happy reading, Hazel!

  10. Wow, that’s a lot of books! I’m so jealous of those hardcovers of the Legend trilogy! I asked for the box set for Christmas, but no one got it for me. I did, however, get the paperback set of Percy Jackson and the Olympian, which I’ve been eyeing for a long time.
