Book Haul!

I have stopped doing IMM due to recent events, so I thought I'd post a good old-fashioned book haul instead! 

Books I Bought:

Again, I sniffed out some good book deals this week and managed to spend less than £10 on books! Yayyy...I can afford food!

Title: Hush, Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Published: 2009

Title: Specials
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Published: 2006

I bought 'Hush, Hush' because I have read some incredibly negative reviews of the book and I wanted to see what my own feelings would be!  
I was really excited to see 'Specials' for such a cheap price! I have read the first two books in the series 'Uglies' and 'Pretties' and, although they are not magnificent, I would really like to see how the trilogy concludes! 

Title: Mirror, Mirror
Author: Gregory Maguire
Published: 2004
The movie only just came out here in the UK and I don't want to see it without reading the book! I love the cover too...fairy tale loveliness!

Title: The Mammoth Book of Best New Manga Volume II
Author: Many!
Published: 2012
There are so many different stories in this volume- great to dip in and out of!

NetGalley E-Books:

Title: The Drowning House
Author: Elizabeth Black

A marriage unraveling and a mystery to solve- this sounds like a really good character-based mystery novel. 

Title: John Saturnall's Feast
Author: Lawrence Norfolk

This novel is about feasting and witch-craft and all good things! I really love the cover too!

Title: We're Flying
Autor: Peter Stamm

I haven't had a collection of short stories in a while so I was excited to get this!

Blog Tour Books!
I am excited to be participating in a few blog book tours in May!  I have never participated before so I'm really looking forward to getting involved and learning more!

Title: Shadow on the Wall
Author: Pavarti K. Tyler

I have already read this book and I LOVED it- it was amazing! Brutal and unflinching and an awesome story.

Title: The Shapeshifter's Secret
Author: Heather Ostler

I loved Animorphs, which is what initially attracted me to this book! The cover is cool too!

Title: The Golden Flute
Author: Catherine Lanigan

This is an MG book, and looks like a great adventure.


  1. Awesome haul! I haven't read Hush Hush or any of Scott Westerfeld's books, yet. I love the cover to Mirror, Mirror! It reminds me of Jackson Pearce's books. Congrats on the blog tours, that's very exciting! Enjoy your reads :)

  2. John Saturnall's Feast - sounds great! I will have to check that one out!

  3. I love Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire. If you are talking about the film with Julia Roberts though it isn't actually based on Maguire's novel. The film is the more traditional version of snow white in that there is an evil Queen and Snow White is the princess dumped in the woods. In the book Snow White is the daughter of a nobleman who is held hostage by Lucrezia Borgois (an actual historical figure). She is sent away to die out of jealousy but not because of a mirror. It's a fantastic book though.

  4. Ah! I really want to read the Uglies series, and kind of can't believe I haven't yet since I've read almost every other book Scott Westerfeld has ever published. The Leviathan series is my most favorite alternate history ever!

  5. I haven't read any of these! I am super excited to see what you will recommend.
