Book Haul #21: The Hiatus Haul

As I talked about earlier on the blog (and on Twitter), I’ve been in a bad blogging rut the past weeks which led to an inevitable hiatus from me. Your comments on my most recent post + your tweets, however, are giving me some perspective on things. I started thinking about the posts I loved doing on the blog and so I decided to do my usual book haul post, which I adore mostly because it’s a chance to share pretty books + pretty photos of books. Here are the books I got during my hiatus:

Thank you Bloomsbury, Harlequin Teen, National Bookstore, Simon Teen, Penguin Teen, and Harpercollins INTL for the galleys and ARCS! Also, thanks to Dahlia Adler for my BTS twitter party prize! ♡

Just because I was on hiatus doesn’t mean I stopped reading/buying books, does it? I’ve actually been ordering a lot through BookDepo, where I spend my earnings from designing blogs! I ordered Ruin and Rising and Wish You Were Italian last month but they still haven’t come. I’m also still waiting for other books, payments from designing blogs too, to arrive at my local post office.

As for going to the bookstore, I actually haven’t visited that much lately, except for that time I bought Dangerous Girls. I mostly only went because I had to buy books for the signings, like with Burn for Burn, as well as Anna and Lola. I actually already had Anna and Lola before but gave away the old copies that I read because I wanted the new covers so that they matched Isla. Speaking of Isla and the Happily Evera After, I never imagined that I’d get an ARC. (Okay, I might have daydreamed about it.) I read it as soon as I could and JUST LOVED IT. Definitely pre-order if you haven’t yet, so you can get the cutesy buttons that come with!

From the rest of my haul, I’ve already read Boomerang (which hopefully I can review soon because I have an extra ARC I can give away then) and Just Like The Movies, which I both enjoyed. I’ve read a lot of good books during my hiatus actually, which totally doesn’t add up. Hopefully, after this book haul post, I’ll really get my blogging vibe back again!

  1. I received ‘Let’s Get Lost’ from Edelweiss in the last week and am absolutely loving it! I am really excited to finish it (hopefully tonight!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I am :)

  2. Burn for burn sounds like an interesting series. I’ve heard a lot about Jenny Han lately. One past midnight looks very creepy (love it) and I like the sound from Let’s get lost. Happy reading! :)

  3. So many opinions about this haul! First, AHHH ANNA AND LOLA AND ISLA AND AHHH THE GLORY! I seriously can’t wait for Isla and I’m glad to see that you enjoyed it! I also need to start the Burn for Burn series, I’ve only heard good things about it and it seems like something that I’d enjoy! Also, YES TO DANGEROUS GIRLS, it’s so good! And you MUST tell me how good Where the Stars Still Shine is, I’ve been debating about buying it for the past year! Great haul :3

    1. Isla was awesome- I’m sure you’ll like it, Shelly! I still haven’t started Burn for Burn either so if you want we can do a readalong sometime! Haha, everyone has book pushing Dangerous Girls so I just knew I had to check it out! I’ll try to write a review for WTSS when I read it! :)

  4. Oooohhh all the pretties! It’s like a dream to see Anna, Lola, and Isla all together <3 Congrats on getting Let's Get Lost! They didn't have it available for the US on Netgalley, so I just have to wait till the end of the month. Hope you enjoy it!

  5. Can I just say that your hauls are my favorites!! So pretty shot! I’ve been wanting to read Dangerous Boys! AHHH Must buy it once I visit FB again :D Boomerang seems like a god book especially that almost everyone’s talking about it! Happy reading, Hazel!

  6. THIS HAUL CONTAINS TOO MUCH AWESOME. I CAN’T. *looks away* JUST KIDDING I’M STARING/DROOLING. I’m dying to read BOOMERANG and ISLA! I loved Where the Stars Still Shine. I’ve heard amazing things about Let’s Get Lost, I’m curious about that one! Happy reading, Hazel <3

  7. Lovely photo as usual, Hazel! (I demand a bookshelf tour! ;D) I am tempted to pick up a copy of Dangerous Girls because that cover’s SO GORGEOUS *_*
