Hello, darling bloggers and readers! I hope your weekend has been fantastic. Maybe you celebrated National Readathon Day and got to read a whole lot which was probably awesome. I didn’t get to do much reading over the weekend which is unfortunate because I’ve got some new books! Check them out:

book haul 31

A Blind Spot for Boys by Justina Chen
Dangerous Boy by Mandy Hubbard
Thumped by Megan McCafferty
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

Would you believe I got the two hardbacks in the middle for a little over $2 (100PHP) each and the V. Schwab book for about $1 (50PHP)?

I talked about this one on the blog earlier this week. I quite enjoyed the story and y’all can check out my review and win a copy here! Aside from books, I got awesome swag in the mail:

    I have been reading non-stop recently, it’s been great considering toward the end of last year I was feeling in a slight rut. I haven’t read any of the books you bought so I’ll be checking back for your reviews — can always trust a Hazel recommendation!

    So $2 is actually £1.30 which is an incredible price for two hardbacks!

    Wow, so many bookmarks! (They look gorgeous, are you going to hand them out, or put them in every single book you’re reading – do you read books at the same time?) Lovely book haul. Cities looks spectacular.

    Great book haul; looking forward to reviews. :)

    Cities looks like an awesome book! Unfortunately, I did not get much reading done on National Readathon Day because I had a club for school that took up most of the day, but I did finish Snow Like Ashes that day, and it was pretty amazing.

    I actually haven’t heard of these books, which means that I have a lot to look forward to when I go GR stalking! Thanks so much for sharing :)

    I love seeing The Near Witch and Thumped. The Near Witch is all kinds of creepy and really good. It was the first book that my book club read. And Thumped! I love Megan McCafferty’s books. I’ve read Bumped, but I haven’t read Thumped yet.

    Enjoy your books!

    For some reason, Last Year’s Mistake reminds me of Katie McGarry’s books. I really want to read The Near Witch. I haven’t read a book with witches for a long time, and I still need to read a Victoria Schwab book!

    AMAZING Haul! I always love your photography and it’s great like always! Don’t you love great bargains and you come home with all these book, secretly dancing inside

  9. Alexa S. on January 25, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    The Near Witch is a beautiful novel! I truly enjoyed reading it, and you’ve reminded me to check out more of her novels too.

    I think I saw Blind Spot for Boys in a list by a local magazine here. Looks pretty good!

    Did you read Bumped? My sister brought them to me to read from the library a couple of years ago. They are great when you need a light read. I think tbey would be just the ticket for a reading slump. :)

    those are great deals…i usually go for bargain books as well :) aaaaand i love those bookmarks…eh i wonder if you’re giving them away…hehehe!
    i am intrigued about The Near Witch by V. Schwab…hope you can post a review sometime soon :)

    $2 for hardbacks is an amazing price. :) I’ve seen A Blind Spot For Boys, it sounds interesting. I haven’t heard of Cities before, but I’ve looked it up on Goodreads and it sounds interesting (I really need a new adjective). I’m jealous of all your Simon & The Homo Sapiens Agenda bookmarks! I want to read that book so badly, I can’t wait for it to come out.

    I’ve read and loved A Blind Spot for Boys! It was my first Justina Chen book!

    Aaaaaaahhhhh SIMON VS BOOKMARKS!!

  16. jessica on February 2, 2015 at 11:37 am

    The Near Witch and Cities sound very intriguing, I’ll definitely have to check them out. I love this post!

    […] and there’s no way she can resist the MC’s passion for photography. Incidentally, she hauled that book last December, so she also gets to read off her shelf this […]

    I loved A Blind Spot for Boys by Justina Chen. It was my first book by her!
