More Rockin’ Books To Read

Jan 2016 Haul-1

It feels weird for me to be posting my first book haul of the year on the first day February. January sure flew by fast, and I admit, it’s been tough trying to catch up with time when life gets busy. But reading will always be a constant, and I’m absolutely excited to read the rockin’ books I got recently!

*sings Taylor Swift* I’m so bad at posting book hauls regularly. I’ve still got back log from December to prove it. Mostly 2016 ARCs and some late 2015 releases that I’m looking forward to picking up.

If you’re curious about the obscure book in the very first photo btw, it’s The Casquette Girls! I didn’t think I’d receive it anymore since I got the email about it many months before so I was super surprised it was waiting for me at the post office. And it was wrapped in some super adorable glittery black ribbon and came with a sweet message from the author + a silver also glittery party hat (that I failed to photograph). A pretty awesome first bookish package of the year!

And on that fun note, I’m so happy I finally have the illustrated edition of Harry Potter! I ordered my copy November last year and it only just got here last month. International shipping takes forever argh. But I’m glad it arrived safely and in perfect condition. I also got Bookishly Ever After and The Wrong Side of Right way back and I’m really excited to read both these lovely sounding contemporaries! Oh and my local bookstore was on sale for the new year so I treated myself to some Little Black Classics.

Much love and gratitude to Alys Arden, Penguin Randomhouse, Harper Collins International, Scholastic, Merit Press and Tracy Ploch for sending this book blogger some awesome mail!

    THE HP ILLUSTRATED EDITION!!! I am so jealous! :D You must share pics of the inside!!!

    Have you read Sword and Verse already? I was a bit underwhelmed by the book. And I have an ARC of Shadow Queen myself, and I cam’t wait to read it!

    Oohhh HARRY POTTER. <3 I'm trying to borrow it from my library but for some reason they're convinced it's adult (?! I mean what even, library, get your act together, gah). hehe. But I’ve heard it’s GORGEOUS. Omg and so many pretty books!! I’ve heard dubious things about Sword and Verse but I WANT TO READ IT SO BAD. Also The Trouble With Destiny. <3 Intense cover love there. :D

    The Illustrated HP is sooo pretty, isn’t it? I got Just Visiting in December too but I haven’t read it yet. I’m really excited for A Gathering of Shadows this month!

    Here’s my January haul.
