Book Haul

Oh boy. Remember, this is two weeks worth of books, including the yearly Christmas haul, aka books I've read as ARCs/galleys, but needed finished copies of! I also think I mentioned last time some excellent finds from publishers. Well, to explain a bit more, there was a massive clean out at one publisher and my friend invited me to raid the shelves. Then she mailed the box to my parents', so I now have all of those too.

Annnnnd hopefully a few others, but I think that's a good list to get through for now!


Sooo, I'm writing this quickly sometime after midnight and I'm kinda sleepy and my throat feels like it's been sliding down a cheese grater... I may forget things is what I'm trying to say.

New books 
(well, these are from early December until now)

Review books (netgalley):

All Fall Down by Ally Carter
Conspiracy Girl by Sarah Alderson 


The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
Elijah's Mermaid by Essie Fox
Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward (which I got because the summary reminded me of Reason and Romance)


Reason and Romance by Jenn Young (e-book, I've read and loved multiple versions of this over the years on fictionpress, so I'm glad the author finally published it)
The State We're In by Adele Parks (was on offer on Kindle, I think)
Oceanswept by Lara Hays (free on Kindle)

Currently reading:

The Cuckoo's Calling by J K Rowling/Robert Galbraith
