I read Half Blood and loved it! I really should pick up Pure soon but maybe read Deity a week before #4 comes out so I don’t have to wait. Great Haul! Happy reading :)

    Umm holy hell! I knew you’d have The Elite- so flippin jealous (and I’m crying haha) The Rising looks really good, and I’m dying to read Rise. Unbreakable is amazing I flippin love Ben! :) Can’t wait to see what you think of all these goodies. How will you get through them all?

  3. The Book Belles

    Oh my gosh, those are some seriously amazing books! :) I loved Smart Girls Get What They Want and it’s one of my favorite contemporaries ever. It’s so cool you got the sequel :) Unbreakable and The Elite both looks great. Enjoy all of your books!

  4. Maji Bookshelf

    I enjoy your videos! Loved this one too. You got some amazing titles! I really loved smart girls get what they want and I would highly recommend it, EVEN (highly unlikely) if you didn’t enjoy her second book.

    I want to start the private series too! guilty pleasure huh? I heard amazing things about it.

    awesome books!

    OMG OMG OMG I’M DYING HERE! I’m so incredibly jealous of your beautiful copies of Apollyon, Unbreakable, The Rising and Splintered! Can’t wait for your reviews for those! The Darkness Rising trilogy is amazing, so yeah you should definitely start it soon :)
    This has got to be the most amazing book haul I’ve seen πŸ˜›
    So happy reading, and I hope you love all of them!

  6. Lili

    You get so many amazing books! Can we switch places, Katie?! haha I also got Apollyon for review and I’m excited to start it. I hopefully have SPLINTERED coming which I am DYING to read. I can’t wait to hear what you think of SALVATION, WHAT THE SPELL, and SCHOOL SPIRITS. I recently requested that last one on netgalley. I read THE DEAD AND BURIED and was greatly disappointed, so I hope the same doesn’t happen to you. And I am also dying to read ALWAYS A WITCH! ah <3 I’m stalking your blog for all the aforementioned books, fyi

    Have an amazing week!

    GAME OF THRONES! Love those books so much and they’re a very good break from YA when teenagers get to be a little much.

    Also lolllll the Justin Bieber and One Direction books just LOLLLLLLL.

    The Sea Of Tranquility is FANTASTIC, like one of my favorite books of 2012 good.

    Happy reading. :-)

  8. Cat

    So jealous of this huge haul, but you’ve inspired me to go book shopping today and pick up a few of those. :) I just finished Sea of Tranquility before Christmas. It was my FAVE book of 2012. You will love it!!!

  9. Blythe Harris

    HOLY CRAP! You have a huge haul this past month! Wowzers. You have no idea how jealous I am that you got Rise by Anna Carey! The Eve trilogy is one of my favorite trilogies in young adult and I’ve been dying to get my hands on an ARC of Rise. It looks like a lot of people are getting ARCs so I need to contact HarperTeen. I hope you like it, Katie! I will eagerly anticipate your review. Nothing is worse than a trilogy that ends on a bad note, but I adore that trilogy so much, so I doubt it’d be anything less than great. And I got Pulse this week, too! Can’t wait to start it. Again, awesome haul, Katie!

  10. Anonymous

    I agree with you about the Eve trilogy, but I do want to read the last book you got! Also can’t wait for The Ward and to get Splintered! Jealous!!
    Anyone know if Splintered is a series or a definite stand-alone?

  11. Jen (A Reading Daydreamer)

    Katie, this is insane! I’m so glad to see you back making vlogs though. :) Harper Collins is always so nice to you! You NEED to read Sarah Strohmeyer’s book, because it’s just an adorable contemporary. <3 The Ward sounds awesome and so does Splintered! Happy reading, Katie!

  12. Alyssa Susanna

    AGH YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE TECH SAVVY THAN ME! VLOG AND EVERYTHING!!! πŸ˜€

    I am jealous of you for so many reason right now – but a few jump out at me: THE ELITE, UNBREAKABLE, THE BOYFRIEND APP -.-

    lol

    I hope you enjoy, well, EVERYTHING!!! I look forward to reading your reviews :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog!

  13. Chi Kittie

    Hey Katie,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. πŸ˜‰ I watched your video this morning and totally forgot to leave you a comment. I ended up buying Shadow Lands right after you showed your beautiful copy.

    I hope you enjoy reading all of your lovely books.
    Have a nice weekend.

  14. Lizzy

    Wow, great haul! There are a ton on your list that I hadn’t heard of before, so I’m definitely going to have to research them. I really enjoyed A Song of Ice and Fire (I had to stop myself at book 3, because it’s going to take so long for the last two to be released. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  15. Emily @ Falling For YA

    Oh my goody goodness this is a massive haul! I am also on the Salvation Blog tour and really enjoyed it. I’m super jealous you got The Elite, and Shadowlands I have been wanting to read both of those books!

    Happy Reading this week and thanks for stopping by my STS =D

  16. siriusyareader

    Ahh!!! Katie your back! I love your vlogs! You got a bunch of good books. I thought the same thing about The Selection. I’m looking forward to your review on the Elite. I started the Eve trilogy but have yet to read the next book. Splintered sounds great! Anyway I’m so glad you’re doing STS again. Thanks so much for stopping by my STS even though it was lacking. I wasn’t feeling well and then right after I posted it I went to the library and got 5 more books… hehe πŸ˜‰

  17. BookStacksOnDeck

    Amazing stack! How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True & What the Spell I hadn’t heard of until now & had to add those to my TBR list. Can’t wait to read Rise (Eve #3)! Hope you love ’em all! <3

  18. Ashley

    I love your new books! The Elite! I’m really hoping I get a copy of that one. πŸ˜€ Dying to read it! I also got Pretty Girl-13 and Pulse in December. They sound pretty awesome! I hope we both love it! And OMG The Ward! I’m dying for that one too. πŸ˜€

    My Stacking the Shelves

  19. Erika A

    Wow that’s a lot of books! I can’t wait to see what you like of Shadows in the Silence and The Elite. I also got Splintered this week and I got Witch World awhile ago but I just couldn’t get into it. Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  20. Andrea Heltsley

    I got Splintered and Witch World myself:)
    Gah!!! I’m so jealous that you got the Elite(Selection #2) by Kiera Cass and The Rising(Darkness Rising #3) by Kelley Armstrong!!! I’ve been waiting forever for those!!!
    That’s an awesome haul, I guess you’ll be locked away reading for a while..lol
    Thanks for stopping by my STS:)
    Cheers
    Andrea

  21. Carmen B.

    Omg, that is one giantly HUGE list! o.O You just got your reading fodder for the next 6 months or so πŸ˜›
    You should move Splintered near the top of that pile – I just finished it and it’s amazing! I’ve heard great things about Shadowlands and The Sea of Tranquility, too!
    Reading the Game of Thrones books is also something I’d like to do this year… at least the first one.
    Enjoy all of your books, no matter what you pick first :) Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  22. Nereyda @Mostly YA Book Obsessed

    Uuuuum, I don’t even know where to start…
    I really can’t wait to read The Shadow Girl and Unbreakable. Have you not read Hallowed yet?
    I’m reading Boundless and arghhhhh it is so frustrating, mostly because I am Team Tucker and there is just too much Christian. HATE him!
    Awesome book haul :)

    • Katie

      Oh I’ve totally read Hallowed but for some reason I got another copy of it. I am with you on Team Tucker and I don’t like the sounds of all the Christian in Boundless. I can’t wait to get my copy!

  23. Christina Kit.

    YAY for Hallowed and Salvation!!

    Your review got me into reading Anne Osterlund’s contemporary – it sounds so good and it’s wonderful when another culture is featured.
