Last week I didn’t do a haul. Honestly, I could probably skip this week too because I just haven’t gotten that many books. Most people would be sad. But not me! I am so far behind that the little hauls are the ones I appreciate best. I got one book for an upcoming blog tour, and I picked up a couple of e-galleys that I REALLY had to have. I also got a candle shipment in and a new gold filter for my coffee pot. It’s the little things, man!
For Review:
The Heiresses by Sara Shepherd
I have never read either of her series but I know they are huge. This book kicks off a new series, this time adult. So I thought I would give it a chance since I love New York City! This is for an upcoming TLC book tour.
Thank you to HarperCollins!

Going Bovine by Libba Bray 
(Already Read-DNF-This book was just not for me at all.)
Killing Ruby Rose by Jessica Humphries
(Got this as part of Kindle First for Amazon Prime, so it was free.)
Bekka here!  I don’t really have too much to say – it’s been a pretty uneventful week over here.  The only thing to really report on is that I got my dresses for BEA and they are AMAZING.  One may not be the most ‘flattering’ but seriously, fuck ‘flattering,’ I love my dress.  Anyway… books!

For Review

No One Needs to Know by Amanda Grace – I didn’t realize who the author was before I requested this one, but oh well! I haven’t had much luck with Amanda Grace/Mandy Hubbard in the past, but I’ll give this one a try anyway.
We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt – I don’t know what it is about teacher-student romances, but they’re like crack for me.

Far From You by Tess Sharpe – I’ve only been waiting for this FOREVER! So excited!
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor – So, I guess it’s time to read Blood and Starlight, huh.
Dare Me by Megan Abbott – I’ve wanted to read this one for ages and so I finally just broke down and bought it.  
On the blog this week:
On Sunday, a review of the Grim anthology by Christine Johnson and various authors.
Lyn rants and reviews Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas on Monday.
Bekka and Lyn share their most unique reads for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday.
Kara discusses why she is envious of writers on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Bekka has a review for Tease by Amanda Maciel.
Forgotten Fridays covers Going Bovine by Libba Bray with Lyn and Kara.

    I love candles!! I was actually supposed to be going to a partylite thing tonight (they are great candles), but the kiddo has been sick so I canceled. And Kara, the coffee filter is definitely something to be excited about. I am buying a filter cup to use at work in the kuerig. I am getting a stainless steel one though.

    Bekka, I love dresses!! I have a bunch that I got from The Burlington Coat Factory for super cheap. My favorite is a red Calvin Klein one that I got for only $30!! The cover for Dreams of Gods and Monsters is so pretty!!! I am going to a signing party on 4/24 so I will buy it then to have signed by the fabulous author. I am just now reading Days of Blood and Starlight. I’m actually listening to the audio and it’s great!!

    Fabulous haul girls!!

  2. I am actually reading Heirsses right now and I don’t think it is adult though? I thought it was labeled YA? if not, it’s ok, I love reading my adult books. I do have some issues with it atm but I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I agree Kara, sometimes it’s nice not getting loads of books. I’m getting quite a build up of books I need to read and I’m so glad I don’t co-blog, I’m booked up until June, it’s insane! I hope you enjoy Far From you Bekka, it sounds fantastic and I’d love to get a copy! Good luck! 😀
