I celebrated my birthday this week! Despite the fact that books were obviously #1 on my wishlist, no one dared to gift them to me because no one was sure what kind of books I wanted. I’m totally creating a separate, more specific book wishlist for my birthday next year! Anyway, my family and relatives did gimme some book money and I’ve spent them oh so well. (See photo above) Thankfully, I was able to control myself and saved some of the money for future book hauls.

All the same, I’m super happy with the books I got this week! I finally have the first two books of the Under The Never Sky series! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get copies! Also, I’ve given in and gotten myself a copy of Throne Of Glass too. (All your awesome reviews have pushed me to do so. This better be as good as you guys were saying!) I bought The Disenchantments and Sorta Like A Rocks Star as well, two contemporaries that’s been sitting too long on my to-read shelf. And I got Kasie West’s books! I’m really excited to read Pivot Point! I got a copy of TDBU too, despite having read it already. (I needed this lovely book on my shelf!) Speaking of, YOU have a chance of winning The Distance Between Us- just enter my international giveaway!

What awesome books did you get this week? What are you reading next?

  2. Hazel, it looks like you had a fabulous birthday! I kind of like just getting book money though instead of worrying that people might gift you a book that you already have. But EEEP! Onto the books you got! I actually haven’t read Under the Never Sky yet, either, but we so have to! I LOVE THRONE OF GLASS. You better like it or something bad is gonna happen ;) Happy reading, Hazel!

    1. I did have a fab birthday! I like book money too but I also love getting wrapped up gifts hehe! Under The Never Sky is one of those books I kept seeing in everyone’s TTT so I knew I had to read the series sometime. Throne of Glass really sounds badass so I’m looking forward to reading it! :) Thanks for dropping by, Jen! <3

  6. I LOVED Pivot Point so much. The Distance Between Us and The Disenchantments were also good. I have a copy of Under the Never Sky, but I haven’t read it yet. Whoops. I want to soon though. Great haul. You got a bunch of great books. I hope you enjoy reading them.

    1. I’m pretty psyched about that one cos I think Kasie West can do no wrong! I really enjoyed TDBU and I think The Disenchantments will be a lovely contemporary read. I’ve put off getting a copy of Under The Never Sky for the longest time too but am excited to read it now! :)

  7. Excellent haul! Book money is always the best. You don’t have to sideeye your friends or family for buying books you don’t want.

    I can’t wait to start Pivot Point. I hope it’s as awesome as what people have been saying.

    1. Thanks, Cee! I guess you’re right! I’m very excited about Pivot Point too! I trust that it’s as good as everyone says though because Kasie West is absolawesome! :)
