Book Haul #26

book haul

For the week of April 22 – April 28, 2012

Hello all!! Due to the whole debacle with Story Siren and her plagiarism, I am no longer participating in her In My Mailbox meme, or following her on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube. Until I find another meme, I am aptly naming this Book Haul (lol). Without further adieu, here’s what I received from some publishers and from my shopping trip to Chapters!

    I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t read The Giver yet! I need to before the movie comes out. I hear it is a short read.

    The Giver should and probably will have you in tears. It’s a classic. You have a great haul!

    I got Ascend too this week, had to complete the Trylle Trilogy! I really enjoyed this series and cannot wait to read more of Hocking’s books.
    I just re-read Passion, love me some Fallen Angels 🙂
    Belles is such a pretty book, and it sounds good too, it’s on my list! and I am dying to read When You Were Mine – anything R&J should be good, right?
    Great stack this week, happy reading 🙂

    Here’s mine:
