My Book Haul #1 - The cover obsessed one!

After all of the drama with The Story Siren, I have decided not to take part in IMM. I have nothing against Kristi herself, just her actions, and I just don't want to get involved in any of that stuff, so I'm not going to take part at all. I think there is going to be some other memes created, so I'll take a look again next week. But for now, I'm just calling it my book haul!

I didn't do an IMM last week because I only got two books, and I was feeling too lazy to get the camera, take the pictures, upload them...*snore* So this is two weeks worth of books!

Fab Confessions of Georgia Nicolson Volume 1 - Angus Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging & 'It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers!' by Louise Rennison
I'm like, the only girl in the UNIVERSE who hasn't read this series, and after reading and loving Louise's Tallulah Casey series, I knew I had to get this! I can't wait to read it, I'm sure it's hilarious! (this is one of last weeks's books)

For review
Kelly-Ann: My Scorching Summer Diary by Liz Rettig
I've read reviews for this series saying it's absolutely hilarious, so I'm really looking forward to reading it. The cover is so pretty too! (I got this last week) Thanks Random House1

Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby
This looks so fun, and the cover is gorgeous! Thanks to the author for sending me this.

Fire City by Bali Rai (ARC)
This looks interesting, and the ARC cover is so cool! Thanks Random House!

Burn Mark by Laura Powell
I don't know much about this one, but the cover is just amazing! (Sorry, this IMM seems to be all about covers! ;P) Thanks Bloomsbury

Jasmine Skies by Sita Brahmachari
I have and haven't yet reading Artichoke Hearts, but I couldn't turn down this request! The two cover match so beautifully together, I just keep admiring them! Thanks Macmillan!

Dying To Know You by Aidan Chambers
This author has gotten tons of awards and amazing reviews, I can't wait to read this! I've read the first few pages and it seems promising! And, OK, the cover is AWESOME!!!! Thanks Random House!

The Vampire Blog
The Vampire Fighters
The Vampire Hunters (manuscript) by Pete Johnson
This series sounds really fun! It's a half-vampire...blogger! I'm taking part in this blog tour in June, so look out for it. Thanks Random House!

That's it for me! Quite a happy week :) What did you get in you mailbox? Let me know in the comments and I'll stop by!


  1. Ooh! I really wanna read Jasmine Skies! Xx

  2. Great books! I really like the look of Burn Mark and Shooting Stars!

    **There's a new meme hosted over at Books, Biscuits and Tea called Showcase Sunday which is the same thing :)**

  3. Georgia Nicholson is fun..... I am pretty sure you will enjoy it. :)

  4. Hi Cliona - a great haul this week. I had no idea what happened with Kristi before this post, but now that I know I wish I hadn't take in part in IMM :( Will have to do the same as you and find another similar meme. Anyway, enjoy your books. The Georgia Nicolson series is a great laugh!

  8. I seriously cannot believe you haven't read the georgia nicholson series yet...WHAT?? Haha, I'm so glad you're giving them a go though, they're amazing. I've been reading them for so long (though I never actually finished the series) I think they were one of the first 'YA' series' I ever read actually. I used to annoy my sister by laughing at them at night when she was tryna sleep...till I lent them to her and then she totally understood haha. ANYWAY I really hope you like them!! I've got Burn Mark and Shooting Stars too, both look awesome
