My Book Haul 7/19/14

In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.


My friend Tammy over at Bo's Book Nook sent me a boxful of awesome! She picked up a few books for me at BEA this year since I wasn't able to attend, but I wasn't expecting so many. Thank you Tammy! It's good to have good friends!

some great swag
Not only did Tammy send me a boxful of lovely books, but she also included a very cool tote bag, an Ally Condie sampler, and some great swag! The magnet is already front and center on my fridge, proclaiming to all that Authors Are My Rock Stars! Thank you so very, very much!!!

Oddest mail of the week:

um....bulk office supplies? No thank you!
This has got to be, hands down, the oddest thing I've ever received in the mail. It's basically an office supply catalog, addressed to me with my name and blog name. While fascinating to browse, sad to say that I do not need 500 mailing envelopes, gigantic rolls of plastic wrap, or 1,000 sheets of packing paper. I can only assume that they got my name and address from a publisher, as that's the only mail I receive with my blog name. Why they would think that a book blogger would need bulk office supplies is beyond me. Very odd....

What did you receive this week?


  1. That was very nice of Tammy to send you over ARCs from BEA. I hope you like em all. It's good to have thoughtful kind friends.

    Books of Love

    1. Friends who love books as much as you do are priceless!

  2. That is a box full of awesome! I hope you enjoy them. :)

    It is strange that you would get a Uline catalog but I will confess to having a small obsession with office supplies.

    1. I actually saw a few things like mailing envelopes and packing supplies that I could use, but don't need 500-1000 of them! *L*

  3. Whew, that is some awesome books!! Super jealous. haha

  4. Nice haul! I'm really curious about Jackaby!

  5. Look at all those lovely pretties you got. :) Hope you are having a great week this week. :)
