MBiC (12) ~ Book haul time!


MBiC is a fortnightly (*ahem*) book haul feature inspired by Kristi (The Story Siren) and Alea (Pop Culture Junkie). I love looking at book covers, and especially their colours, and that is where the idea to feature my new arrivals by their spines in accordance to their shade comes from.

28th of April 2013 ~ Notes

It's been a month and a half since my last book haul. This is only half of the books I've gotten. In a week or two I'll share the remaining titles (they're mostly more classics that I've bought). In this one I'm sharing my review books and recent YA I've bought/preordered. Super excited for some of these!


Note: All release dates are in the format (dd/mm/yyyy); click on images to zoom in; all book links go to Goodreads.

* = Up for swap

  • Wildlife - Fiona Wood - 01/06/2013 - accepted
  • Steal My Sunshine - Emily Gale - 01/05/2013 - requested --> review tk
  • Inferno (#4) - Sherrilyn Kenyon - 09/04/2013 - unsolicited *
  • The Bone Season - Samantha Shannon - 20/08/2013 - requested ARC
  • The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey - 07/05/2013 - unsolicited

Excited for all these, except for Inferno, and that's because it's just not for me. Just finished reading Steal My Sunshine - at least 4 stars from me! Review will be up sometime this coming week. The 5th Wave has been generating some really good buzz from fellow bloggers/Goodreaders, so I'll be reading that really soon. (FYI: It's on Netgalley too!) I was practically begging for The Bone Season. Read the sampler here. I'm so curious about this one and I hope it doesn't just fall into the romance arc. And as for Wildlife, I love Fiona Wood's debut so I can't see how I won't also love this.

Bought

Just finished the The Hunger Games series last week. So good! I'll eventually get around to writing a wrap-up series review for it, once all my emotions have caught up with me. I read Out of the Easy at the beginning of this month. It was perfect (for me)! Check out my review, the link is above.

I preordered Gone for $5 through The Book Depository. It's the 'special' edition, mostly in that it's cheaper; there's also a sample chapter from the last book, Light. I actually got Ransomwood from Lisa (Badass Bookie) through a swap. All the other books not mentioned are from AllBooks4Less. I was VERY happy about getting Burn Bright - I now have the whole trilogy and I will get around to reading it soon. There's just so much dystopia still on my TBR!



Q: How many books do you read a month, on average?

Happy reading.
Share with me your own book hauls! :)
