When was the last time I did a book haul post? i honestly can't remember. Since [whenever that was], I have acquired, as you can see, quite a lot of books. Is that a surprise? I think not. Some have been sent for review, one I bought, some I won, some were gifted to me [thank you Sabrina], and some are back in a book haul because they are now sIgNeD. Yes. RAINBOW ROWELL SIGNED MY BOOKS [again, *tackle hugs* Sabrina who let me pile them on her when she went to YALC. and when I didn't. *throws things*]
SIGNED BOOKS: Landline & Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Have a Little Faith by Candy Harper [Which I LOVED SO MUCH, even though I normally don't really like books like these], Say Her Name by James Dawson and Salvage by Keren David, which I have yet to read. And Cress by Marissa Meyer [See 'WON']
WON: Inland by Kat Rosenfield, with thanks to Anya who held a competition , the prize being a book under £10 from The Book Depository and the entire Keri Smith backlist [won from Spinebreakers - you will see what I won in my next post: Keri Smith Collection] which included: Finish This Book, How to Be An Explorer of The World [I HAVE WANTED THIS FOR SO LONG], Mess, The Pocket Scavenger [which as you can see I already had] and Finish This Book and Cress by Marissa Meyer, [I won a US writing competition - I didn't know it was US at the time but they let me win anyway!]
BOUGHT: The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson [for 99p!!!!]
SWAPPED: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins and Graceling by Kristen Cashore. [Thank you Elodie]
SWAG: Lots and lots of swag, all very pretty and THANK YOU SABRINA.
FOR REVIEW: Everything else.
And that is ''it''. LOTS OF THINGS. I really want a new bookcase but I have no space...:( Now - to the thanks..*settles down* Thank you to Sabrina, Elodie, Rainbow Rowell, Anya, James Dawson, Hot Key Books, Penguin Books, Faber and Faber, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, Orion, Quercus, Chicken Hous and Amulet Books.
Did you get anything recently? And have you read any of these books? What did you think? And did any of you go to YALC? HOW WAS IT? Tell me things...

    1. THANKS. I took me so long because I kept forgetting to add photos in. I think it took four hours to do this post. :'(

  3. OMG, all these books and and...DID YOU MAKE BOOKISH GIFS?! You are seriously awesome. Fangirl is signed. Eeeep. You're so lucky. And congrats on winning a writing competition too! THAT IS COOL. I have never won a competition, hehe, but I win a lot of random draws, so that counts right?! I'm randomly lucky. ;) *ahem* Anyway, this sure is a lot of books! Hope you have time to eat them all, right?! I haven't been reading much lately and woooah my TBR is getting taller. I swear I'm not doing anything and I have no idea who it's siphoning books from. Except, maybe, my sister... *whistles innocently*
    Thanks for stopping by @ Notebook Sisters!

I hope so too...I'm going on holiday soon so READING TIME GALORE. Mine grows taller EVERY DAY. Hah, I have no-one to siphon books off of except my TBR pile expands drastically every time I read blogs and watch booktube..*sigh*
