It’s been a crazy week for me, full of so many new books. Too bad I couldn’t read any of them because I’ve been busy catching up with school work. But I’ll definitely makeup for that this weekend! Excuse me while I drown in all the awesome reads I got this week:

1. Crystal Mack – The Pentrals (For review)
2. Melina Marchetta – Jellicoe Road (Bought)
3. Nyrae Dawn & Jolene Perry – Out Of Play (Bought)
4. Cora Carmack – Losing It (Won)
5. Elizabeth Norris – Unraveling (Bought)
6. Katja Millay – The Sea Of Tranquility (Bought)

I dropped by Fullybooked just to check if the book I ordered had come already. Apparently, it’s still on its way. I ended up perusing Fullybooked’s shelves and trying to control my *grabby hands* from getting all the lovely new books! Obviously that didn’t work though. I blame Out Of Play (which I just couldn’t not buy) and my I’m-already-spending-might-as-well-just-empty-my-wallet mentality.

If you guys don’t follow me on Twitter, you probably don’t know this: I received my first ever book mail! Here’s what was in it:


I won some swag and a signed copy of Losing It from a giveaway! I just wanted to say thank you so much to Micalea Smeltzer!


Gahhhh, I still cannot believe I have something signed by Cora Carmack! I’m just so happy!

What’s crazier than getting your first ever book mail? Getting your second one the day after. Yep, true story. Anyway, The Pentrals looks so pretty! I love illustrated covers!


Thank you so much for the advanced copy, Gary Mack from Apologue Entertainment!

You guys will not believe all the ebooks I got this week. I didn’t even expect to get approved for most of these. Anyway, here are the latest additions to my digital bookshelf:

ebook haul 6

From Netgalley: All Of You, Wild Cards, Monsters, BRZRK Reloaded, Waterfell, Iron Traitor, Countdown, (Never) Again, Heartbeat
From Edelweiss: Maybe One Day, The Last Forever, Finding It
Other eARCs for review: Chaos
Bought from Amazon: Keep Me Still, Buried Secrets

Thank you Netgalley, Edelweiss, William Morrow Paperbacks, HarperCollins Children, Simon Pulse, PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, Harlequin TEEN, Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, Entangled Publishing!

Ahhhh, so many books to read! No pressure though because I’m really psyched about reading each and everyone of them! Now, what to read next? (Seriously, I need help here guys)

How about you? What awesome books did you get this week?

    Ooh! How exciting! Jellicoe Road and The Sea of Tranquility are frecking awesome– start those ASAP! Wild Cards isn’t too shabby either. BTW, I am so jealous of the Cora Carmack book– I haven’t read anything by her yet! And the inscription ROCKS. Awesome haul, girly!

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 1, 2013 at 1:24 pm

      I know, I’ll start those soon! I’m particularly excited about them. OMG You HAVE to read Cora Carmack’s books! Thank you so much for dropping by, Megan! :’)

  2. Sarah on August 31, 2013 at 4:41 am

    Wow, fantastic haul! Really enjoy all the pretty covers.. Especially the cover of Losing It!

    Unraveling looks good and I can’t wait to read Iron Traitor :D Enjoy!

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 1, 2013 at 1:27 pm

      My friends have been nagging me to read Unraveling! I’m excited about Iron Traitor too!

  4. Jen on August 31, 2013 at 11:17 am

    Yay for signed books! I got a lot of the same egalleys from Netgalley. I’m so excited for Maybe One Day and Waterfell! I hope you love all of them, and happy reading!

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 1, 2013 at 1:30 pm

      Signed books are awesome especially when they have such lovely inscriptions! I heard Maybe One Day’s real good! I’m not sure about Waterfell but I’m hoping it’s likable. :D Thanks so much, love. <3

  5. Lisa on August 31, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Oh man, this haul is wonderful! I have Jellicoe Road checked out from the library right now. I haven’t read it yet, though. I hecka want to read Losing It. I’ve heard a few good things about it. Also, I really love the photo you took of the signature in that book. So pretty.

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 1, 2013 at 1:45 pm

      Haha, it is! I don’t think any of my future book hauls could top this! Yey, Jellicoe Road is supposedly a beautiful book! Eeeep, you gotta read Losing It! Cora Carmack is really awesome. And thanks so much, Lisa. :’)

    I loved Unraveling! And Losing It/Faking It, and now I have Finding It. I wasn’t a huge fan of The Sea of Tranquility though :\

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  8. Megan on September 1, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Isn’t getting books in the mail the best feeling? You got a ton of great looking books this week.

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on September 1, 2013 at 2:16 pm

      It is. I’m glad I finally know what it feels like. I know, I’m so happy and excited to read them! :)
