Book haul (#8)

This is the indie edition as I think most of what I've downloaded recently has been indie... Having said that I've never actual participated in...

This meme is run by Tynga's Reviews.
This week I have stacked my shelves (quite literally).
Oh look! What's that? I'm getting a haul..
Mum took this as I was opening some- I was just looking at Curious Fox's goodies :)
But before I get into the parcels, these are from book swaps/gifts given at OUP by the bloggers there! Thanks Julianne for The Butterfly Tattoo, Kerrie for The Ghost & the Goth, Orli for Ketchup Clouds & Fiona for the Numbers Trilogy. I haven't read the top three so am looking forward to those :) ((I've linked to their blogs, not Twitters :P))

We also got books from OUP themselves at the event- you can see the beauties above! I got Who Framed Klaris Cliff signed, as well as my proof copy of Storm & Stone. I loved the event for many reasons (the books helped- especially for ice-breaking).
I got these books from a library sale at school. I'm not a huge fan (mainly of the noise levels in there) but these cost me 20p altogether and it was a chance I couldn't miss so I don't regret buying them! I bought more books but we'll get to that...
(Sorry it's a weird photo BTW- its just I don't want to show the library stickers & bits.)
Well, there's this new Sarra Manning which I won- thanks to Goodreads' First Reads Giveaway ProgramAtom provided the book for the giveaway so thanks for that... It was a fantastic opportunity to receive it :)
Returning to the opening of the review books... TA-DA! Look, it;s the CF catalogue as well. I'm really looking forward to reading their May release Alex As Well. I also have shown you the sampler for The Ruby Airship (second book, Diamond Thief review here) as I'm looking forward to that in April, I believe :) They always have good books & send me such treasures...
Also can't wait to dig into Rachel Riley's The Time Of My Life which I received from OUP actually for review & as I'm part of (a bit of a spoiler) the blog tour soon! :P
But, now...
Last, but not least, the books I bought from The Works. Not quite for 10p each XD But still, quite good bargains! More good reads, YAY! (no pun intended). I hope you liked this haul... What do you think? It has been a month but it's still quite good. I'm not complaining...

Wow! That *is* a massive haul! Ketchup Clouds and the Numbers trilogy are on my wish list so I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of those. :)

The CF goodies look great too - I want to read more YA and MG this year so I'll need to check out their catalogue.

Also, yay for the Sarra Manning book! Can't wait to read it. :D

Hope you enjoy all your new books, Amy! #TheVoiceUK Twitter party tonight? :D x

Oh my word, so many wonderful books. Happy reading.

Roberta R. said...

So you are a redhead, uh? :)

That's really massive. I tried to count your books and failed. Can't count after 10 ;).
I had a hard time deciding which book I wanted to read first when I got my Christmas book package (gift to self). How do you manage to make up your mind?

I've Seen The World's Worst Girlfriend elsewhere today, too, and I'm really curious about it - it looks like a fun read!
The Numbers series, look a little ominous, does it have anything to do with the TV show?
Thanks for stopping by earlier, Amy :) Have a wonderful weekend.

What a great haul! Happy Reading!
Here are my newest additions .

@Vicky: I've already read Numbers but you'll hear my thoughts on Ketchup Clouds, sure. I hope you get/have a CF catalogue now? They are fabulous <3 Yes, we are having a #VoiceUK Twitter party tonight ;)

@Luna: Hehe, thanks. *goes off to actually read them*

@Roberta: Am indeed. USE YOUR TOES TOO THEN :P I'm too lazy most of the time too :P You think I have tips on how to make up my mind? Umm... OCDish traits? By release or if non-review by how long I've had/interest levels/how popular on GR/ratings :P Many things, haha.

@Jaden: *TBR pile stacks up* I need to read Who Framed Klaris Cliff too :P My Mum, who got her own signed copy, keeps telling me to :P

@Breathesbook: Thanks <3 As a monthly hauler, it's easy for it to look good :P

@Tsuki: Hopefully so ;) Thanks.

@Lexxie: I'll be honest, I haven't really liked all of Manning's books but I keep coming back because... I dunno. They're always popular too.
The Numbers books don't have anything to do with the show (no idea what that is), no. Really fab reads :D

@Jill: Those two both look good, yup. Thanks for stopping by.

@RfaB: That’s nice to hear. Happy reading!

@Debbie: I don’t even get that many books for Christmas! :O Probably why my Mum takes photos- photographic proof I get books from SOMEWHERE. What did you think of Alex As Well?

@Hawwa: Wasn’t that the haul that rejected my comment? ;) Still haven’t read it but... when back from the abroad maybe ;) That’s April... I’m not very good at following orders, evidently.

@Jay: By great you mean insane? Hope you’ve been enjoying your additions <3

Looking for something?...
