Wow, so it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a book haul post. This is actually the first one this year which is totally nutty. This also means that I’ve completely forgotten what I have and haven’t shared so I’m pretty much winging it. Here goes!

Review Books

I’ve been super selective of the ARCs I request because 1. I always have too many and fall behind and it drives me nutty and 2. I’ve been selecting some real mediocre reads and life is too damn short for mediocre reads! This new batch of review books has some really good looking ones so I’m hoping that pans out well for me. I’m currently reading Banishing the Dark and I’m loving it.

  1. Very nice collection of books this week! I’m with you though, I need to start really thinking about titles I pick and choose from on both EW & NG as I have LOTS. I’m trying to rely mainly on my library in order to get caught up on series I’m lagging behind. I just hope they don’t become more frugal in their purchasing habits. Have a great week!

  2. YAY BOOKS!
    Out of all these books the one I want in my hot lil hands RIGHT NOW is On the Bright Side, I’m Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God like right now. The title is amazeballz. I’m not sure what this says about me as a person, but whatever, I’m committing.

  3. This is an amazing haul Bonnie, I’ve had so many mediocre reads lately, that I totally understand you not wanting to request that many books, I tend to usually go for the ones that are already on my to read pile. You have a really nice variety of books to get through, so I hope you come across some that you will enjoy. Happy reading! 🙂
