Book Haul [6]

I haven't thought of a name for a weekly meme of book hauls so let's just go with what's posted above.

For now, I'll call this the "Whatever it's called" Book Haul. It's only temporary, I swear. I just haven't thought of a clever name for it. So this is pretty much just like In My Mailbox by the Story Siren and This Week In Books by Pop Culture Junkie and all the other titles with the similar concept here and there. This is a weekly post showcasing the books you received for the given week, either bought online or from a physical bookstore, borrowed from the library or from a friend, received for review or won from a giveaway, etc.

Hi there! 

Wow! How long has it been since my last book haul post? I've been on a hectic schedule for the past few weeks so forgive the absence. 

Anyway, I have a few books in for this week's post. I haven't actually gotten the time to go to bookstores recently so this is going to be a short list.

A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL by Suzanne Young
SCARLET by A.C. Gaughen (Review Available HERE)
GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers (Review Available HERE)

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings BOOKMARKS
Book Depository: "Fish you should not eat" BOOKMARK

So that's it for me, let me show you a few things I had my hands full with for a couple of weeks:

Goodreads - The Filipino Group
Photo originally from Maria @ Bookchilla: Reading is the ultimate aphrodisiac
I finally got the chance to meet with the Goodreads: The Filipino Group during one of the Face-to-Face discussions. I only went there to observe but I had fun meeting them.

My cousin's daughter (my niece), Catherina is welcomed by the entire clan to the Christian world! 

Agnes                                                                                 Hanna

And then those two kept keeping me busy with all their vet schedules, not to mention baths and grooming and everything in between. 

And of course a whole pile of books that need to be trimmed down. LOL.

Your turn, WHAT DID YOU GET THIS WEEK? Let me know and I'll be sure to check them out!
Happy reading!


  1. A Need So Beautiful sounds interesting. The Selection was okay for me but I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I want to read A Need So Beautiful. I keep saying I'm going to get a copy and then never do. And I have The Selection but haven't read it yet. Too many books, not enough time.
