  1. It's the best thing to join Showcase Sunday or some other meme, just be better blogger than I'm and post more often. I always have something more important to post but I'll prepare it for the next Sunday. :)
    But the point is that you've got some amazing books this month. I loved Tiger Lily and I hope you'll love it too same as Forever :) I have finished Skulk few days ago and it was really interesting :) I need to read The Coldest girl in Coldtown too. Great haul :)

  2. I participate in Showcase Sunday, it helps connect those who participate :)
    So many awesome looking books! Yay for all the Kelley Armstrong ones, and Grave Mercy was awesome! I hope you enjoy them all :)

  3. Ooooh, a lot of wonderful looking books there! Enjoy reading them!

  4. OMGGGG what an awesome haul! *drools* I am in book heaven right about now. You have some beautiful hardback books there. And congrats on winning a book, you lucky thing!

  5. WOAH YOU GOT SO MANY BOOKS! I hope you enjoy them all!

    Thanks for sharing, chick! <33

  6. Holy awesome haul! I really do need to get around to reading the Carrie Ryan series, I have had those forever. I hope you love all your new goodies, Megan!

    1. Carrie Ryan's 1st book is amazing the 2nd is kinda meh and the 3rd I had to stop reading a few chapters in because it was hard for me to get into but I wanna finish the series.

      I hope you both like book 1 :)

  7. Woah, that is a big haul!! From weekly to monthly, now thinking back to weekly? I don't know, I say you should do one whenever you feel like you've accumulated enough books to warrant one. Sometimes you might have slow weeks, sometimes not.

    It's amazing to see all of the books in your haul together like this though! Grave Mercy and Clockwork Angel are amazing, amazing books! Can't say enough good things about them. But I will say this: they both gave me I newfound appreciation and love for historical fiction!!

    Also, Curtsies & Conspiracies - eeeeeek!! I know we both loved the first one, so it will be so exciting to return to this sequel (another histfic!)!!

  8. Awesome haul and ooh Grave Mercy, I loved that. I host the Sunday Post and some peeps find bi-monthly works great for them. I will say it helps generate more traffic and I have made some terrific friends, found awesome books and followed new blogs because of book haul posts.

  9. I hope you enjoy Origin! Its one of my faves!

  10. Maybe do the Sunday showcase when you get a few you'd like to talk about? Not everyone posts one every week - some do it fairly intermittently. xo Orpheus sounds really interesting, I shall have to look out for it. Grave Mercy is in my tbr pile already (yey), but I'd love to hear what you think about Origin and Tiger Lily as I'm currently thinking about them... :-) Have a great weekend honey!

  11. Wow -- crazy haul! :) Lots of good stuff, though.

    I think I'll be doing a monthly post come the new year ... a weekly one will be too much to keep up with! But we shall see.

    Yay for winning Omens! I can't wait to read that one!
