Book Haul (#27)


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I certainly did. On top of the good Christmas, I've been able to sleep in until the late hours of the morning because it's the holidays. WOOOOOO! Who doesn't love to sleep in?

Anyways, I joined the UK Secret Santa and my Secret Santa mailed me some incredible books that I have wanted to read for a long time. If you're reading this, Secret Santa, I would just like to say that I am extremely grateful for my presents!!

Here are the books that I've received this week:
Is It Just Me?Storm (Elemental, #1)
Is It Just Me? by Miranda Hart - Received -
My parents got me this book for Christmas! Thank you! If you live in the UK you'll probably recognise Miranda Hart from her comedy TV show 'Miranda', she is HILARIOUS.
Storm (Elemental #1) by Brigid Kemmerer - Received -  
Thank you, Secret Santa!!!!!! I have wanted this book for SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long. I love you. Whoever you are; you're amazing. I read it on Christmas day, and it was awesome.
Once (Eve, #2)Mystic City (Mystic City, #1)
Once (Anna #2) by Anna Carey - Received -
Thank you, Secret Santa! I can't wait to find out what happens to Eve and Caleb. 
Mystic City (Mystic City #1) by Theo Lawrence - Received -
Thank you, Secret Santa! I've heard some mixed things about this book but I'm intrigued by the cover.
If I LieBeautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)
If I Lie by Corrine Jackson - Received -
Thank you, Secret Santa! I've seen this one around on Goodreads and I've been longing for it.
Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful #1) by Jamie McGuire - Received -
Once again, THANK YOU, SECRET SANTA! I read it yesterday and thought it was really good.
Tempting the Player (Gamble Brothers, #2)Opal (Lux, #3)
I bought this book to read for the JLA readathon! I enjoyed Tempting the Best Man so I thought why not read the sequel?
I finished this book at 4am this morning. Omg. Oh my freakin' god. That is one big cliffhanger! *Sobs* I need Origin.

That's my haul for this week! Leave a link to your book haul in the comments and I will check it out.

Enjoy your books,
Sam :D


  1. WOW! How many beautiful books! Can you believe I didn't receive a book for Christmas? I guess my Secret Santa doesn't know me that well xP
    I've always wanted to read Beautiful Disaster - I just love the cover!- and I also tried to request Mystic City on Netgalley, but they didn't accept my request. I have Half-Blood and Pure from JLA still sitting on my shelf and Storm is on my wishlist!

    Have a great weekend!
    And if you want take a look at my Books Shopping

  2. You've got so many books! I love all the covers and I'm thinking of adding most of them in my to be read list.
    Also, how awesome is Miranda Hart? It's a shame her show is not broadcasted here anymore :(

    Have fun reading all of those!

  3. I highly approve of any of Jenn's books LOL And I LOVE Brigid's series. You need to read Spark like now! :-D Enjoy!

  4. I love that cover for Mystic City. Wow, I want to read that one.

  5. Miranda!! Ah! She's so hilarious! Did you see the Christmas special? Lol. And Outnumbered's really fun to watch too.
    Yeah. I almost died at the end of Opal. You know why.
    The Teen Reader

    1. Yes!! The Christmas special was absolutely hilarious. "BISCUIT BLIZZARRRD!"

      Le sigh. Stupid ending, right? I want Origin so bad.

  6. I have an ARC of Mystic City and i can't wait to read it. I've heard great things about it!

    My IMM

  7. YES! *waves hands in the air* I'm SO GLAD YOU LOVED STORM!! I so wanted you too!! :D

    I realised, after I had sent the damned parcel that I forgot to put who I was in the Christmas Card. haha.

    But I do hope you love all of your new reads! And I'm definitely curious to know what you think of Mystic City when you read it :D
