Book Haul! (151)

Book Haul is a weekly feature here on Katie’s Book Blog.  It is not something I created and I take no credit for it.  Anyone who wants to participate can and you don’t necessarily have to call it a book haul. It is a list of what books you have received over the previous week, either for review, from the library, from the bookstore, or from trades.

For review:
-The Book Of Blood And Shadow by Robin Wasserman
-Dark Frost (Mythos Academy #3) by Jennifer Estep
-The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze
-Black Dawn (Morganville Vampires #12) by Rachel Caine

Gifted:
-Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

Lovely bloggers mentioned:
-Angela from Reading Angel

    Great haul, Katie! The cover for The Last Princess IS gorgeous. I might have to buy it just to have it on my shelf, haha. :) And that’s so sweet of Angela to buy Insurgent for you! If I were on a book buying ban, I would break it for Insurgent in a blink of an eye, but I totally admire your strength! Happy reading, Katie. :)

    I got Insurgent, too. I’m actually planning to hold off just a little longer before I read it. I’m looking forward to it, but there are books I need to get done for review that should come first. Anyway, great bunch of books you got. Glad to hear you’re enjoying them. Have a great day!

    Great book haul! Love the cover for The Book of Blood and Shadow! And anything by Jennifer Estep is awesome, and I’m really looking forward to reading Dark Frost! So sweet of Angela to send you Insurgent because you’re on a book buying ban. I broke my ban last week, so have to climb back on the wagon. Happy reading!

    Just finished reading Insurgent! L O V E D it! Probably not as much as Divergent but still L O V E D it! I’m desperate to get my hands on a copy of The Last Princess, something about the cover just scream BADASS! I need to catch up on the Morganville Vampires. Only up to #6 :/

    Happy Reading Katie!

    Nice haul this week. The Lost Princess is really pretty, and I love that bookmark you have in The Book of Blood and Shadow (because THIS is what I notice). The cover is a bit disappointing, but hard paper is cool, as well as the inside cover. =D
    Enjoy!

    Epic haul this week Katie. The Last Princess looks like an exciting read. Loving your yellow dangly bookmark thing. I never buy bookmarks, always end up making one out of a piece of paper that’s lying around.
    Enjoy your reads this week!

    Insurgent is so good!! Glad your friend bought it for you so you can read it. I loved Robin Wasserman’s Skinned series — I’ll have to check out Book of Blood and Shadows soon!!

    Check out the books and beauty items I got this week on Books & Beauty!

    I didn’t receive anything this week, so I’m just checking out what everyone else got :)

    Honestly, I really dislike the Book of Shadow & Blood’s cover… I thought there was something wrong with my library’s version, because it was so disjointed, and… odd, but it appears that that’s the official cover. I love the UK version SO MUCH MORE! I’m going to be finishing it tonight. Can’t wait to compare note on it it :)

    Oh, I can’t wait to read Black Dawn! Love the cover on that one too. I’m hoping to get to Divergent this month or next month. I hope I love it as much as everyone else.

    Have a great Sunday Katie!
