Book Haul #30: New On My Shelves This 2015

Happy weekend, dear readers! How was your first week back in school/at work? I hope it’s been great and that you’re able to relax with a book today. Anyway, I’m here to share a small book haul with you guys:

book haul 30

First book haul for the year!

Love, Lucy by April Linder
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Life/school has been demanding since the start of this week but I was thankfully able to squeeze in a bookstore visit last Wednesday, as I mentioned on Instagram, and got Jennifer Niven’s newly released debut book, All The Bright Places. I’ve heard a lot and can’t wait to read it!

I received the rest of the books in the mail. Dianne of Oops I Read A Book Again kindly sent Love, Lucy for me to borrow and read. Everything Leads To You, the only 2014 release in the pile, was sent to me as a belated Christmas gift by Kazhy of My Library In The Making! Thank you PH blogger friends for being lovely!

I also have to thank Harper Collins for sending me an ARC of the much coveted Red Queen for review! Also, I got these other HC titles from Edelweiss:


Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

I’ve already dug in Emmy & Oliver and loved it and I’m so thrilled to be reading Simon soon! I’m totally not sorry for caving in and breaking my Edelweiss/e-ARC ban.

What books did y’all get recently this 2015? Have you read any of the books I got? Let me know which one you think I should read first! ;)

    Great book haul; I like the Red Queen. ;)

    Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is fantastic!

  4. Anette Fabre on January 10, 2015 at 3:33 am

    Everyone I know is reading All The Bright Places and I’m all alone. *insert intense sobbing*

    Haha don’t worry about that edelweiss ban! When I see a new HarperTeen title, I immediately download it because even though I might not feel like reading it right now, maybe I’ll get to it sometime. Hope school is going well for you, Hazel! I don’t start until the 17th (on a Saturday which sucks)…whatever, at least I only get to go to school 3x a week (MWSat) so yippee more sleeping & reading time for me lol. I’m excited to hear what you thought of Emmy & Oliver! I hope I’ll like it as well. I’m pretty sure you’ll like Homo Sapiens (lol that title is way too long) because a lot of people really liked it. :D

    YES. EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU. YOU WILL LOVE IT. *crosses my fingers* It’s such a sweet book. You’ll really enjoy the friendships!

    I’m dying to read Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. When I get my hands on it, confetti and rainbows will shine down on me! ;D You should arm yourself with oreos when you read it.

    Wonderful book haul! I’m very excited to read “Everything leads to you” when my copy arrives!

  8. Taylor Lynn on January 10, 2015 at 10:02 am

    I haven’t read any of these yet, but I ordered a copy of All the Bright Places the other day which should arrive next week, and I’m looking forward to reading it–I’ve heard so many good things! I’ve also got Everything Leads to You, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Emmy & Oliver all on my to-read list, and I’m looking forward to them all (they sound so fantastic!). I hope you enjoy them–happy reading!

  9. Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination on January 10, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about All the Bright Places, Everything Leads to You and Red Queen, and they all have beautiful covers. Enjoy!

  10. Amalfi on January 10, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    OMG i want your books!

  11. Mawa Mahima on January 10, 2015 at 1:34 pm

    I’ve spotted around five books that I’m coveting right now in the school library, but since I’m on a bit of a book-acquiring ban it’s so hard having to cheer myself on to finish the books I have on me so I can get more books. I have to read all the books, after all!
    Love the photo, almost all the covers match in colour. It looks beautiful.

  12. Julie on January 10, 2015 at 6:33 pm

    I’m currently reading All The Bright Places after months of anticipation and I’m loving it so far. My friend has an ARC of The Red Queen and she loved it! Great photo by the way.

  13. Chanpreet on January 10, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    I don’t think I’ve read anything by April Lindner yet, although I’ve been meaning to. From your haul, I’ve heard lots of good things about The Red Queen!

  14. lea on January 11, 2015 at 12:06 am

    Haven`t read these yet, but they sound interesting!

  15. Laila BC on January 11, 2015 at 2:43 am

  16. Shannelle on January 11, 2015 at 6:11 am

    *wheezes at Red Queen to the point that I’m begging for it in my head* Anyway, enjoy all your books! And the Starbucks, haha.

  17. Pili @ In Love With Handmade on January 11, 2015 at 8:17 am

    Lovely haul! I’ve actually just started the few pages of All The Bright Places so I can’t really say much about it yet, but I have high hopes for it!
    I’ve heard really great things about both Red Queen & Simon so I hope you’ll love both!
    Happy reading!

  18. Lauren @ Lose Time Reading on January 11, 2015 at 10:53 am

    EEK! Red Queen :) I’m hoping to start that so soon, I’ve been itching for it! I hope you love it :) Everything Leads To You is one I have wanted to pick up for some time but ooohh, yanno, the rest of my TBR haha.

    Never be sorry for breaking the Edelweiss ban :)

    Happy Reading Hazel!!

  19. Laura on January 16, 2015 at 5:00 am
