If you liked that you might like this:


  1. Yay for Bone Crossed and Cat’s upcoming book! A Certain Slant of Light is on my TBR too – I have to get to that soon – and I haven’t heard of The Girl of the Limberlost (was that the title?) but am off the check it out at once. I just LOVE those books where you read a chapter or two for comfort every once in awhile, so I need to pick up more books like that. I’m really curious to see what you think of The Blue Sword, though. I read it with Catie last year and wasn’t impressed, but McKinley’s writing seems to be an acquired taste (slow, lots of description, little action till the end), so I’m looking forward to comparing notes on that one. Great haul, Heidi! 😀

  2. First – I just noticed that you have a Roman Holiday poster on your wall. That is one of my favorite movies, and definitely my favorite Audrey Hepburn movie. I like it so much more than Breakfast and Tiffany’s. And Gregory Peck, too!

    Okay, enough about Roman Holiday. I haven’t read the Cathrynne M. Valente books, but they are really popular at my library. Well, actually, the first one is popular, but I don’t think the second one circulates as much. It’s definitely a series I want to read though.

    I read a book by Sarah Beth Durst earlier this year and HATED it. It was Ice. Ugh, seriously, I didn’t like that book. But I have heard that Vessel is good. I’m just not sure I want to go there again.

    I completely understand needing to own books even if they are in the public domain. I have five copies of Pride and Prejudice. FIVE! I just can’t help myself.

    Anyway, enjoy all your goodies. Happy reading :)

  3. So good to see your face, friend! I’m happy you’re so happy about this book haul! I’ve never heard of Humble Bundle before so I’m going to have to check it out because deals like that are as rare as unicorn. And there IS something to be said for Aussie YA, as well as the generosity of book bloggers. We are all so awesome. I can’t wait to read Shadows myself and I desperately need to get to Sara Zarr. The Girl Who series has been making me crazy with lust after all I’ve heard of it, I really need to start this series soon since it sounds so exactly what I would read!

    Enjoy your new books <3 <3

    Yay! So glad you are excited about it! And you are TOO sweet.

    I am insanely jealous of the new The Girl Who book. Cannot WAIT to hear how you like it.

    Speaking of Aussie YA, I just read Jellicoe Road. I still can’t really talk about it.

  5. Bonnie says:

    Tons of great books this week! And oh gosh… I’m so excited for the new Valente book too!! I would have had a problem not dropping everything to start it at once too. 😀

  6. Chachic says:

    You got some pretty awesome books in this recent haul of yours. I’m so glad it didn’t take long for The Blue Sword to be delivered. I ordered that as soon as I found out that you’ve NEVER read ANY of Robin McKinley’s books. That has to change soon, my friend.
