Book Haul #5 Part 2 - I Have to Review the World & Giveaway!

Hola!

Today I have part two of my monthly book haul (have you seen part 1?) and now that I am composing this haul I am realising that I definitely did go beserk this month and hopefully will tone it down a bit in the future? I have very few paperbacks for you, a few DVDs and mostly... a whole bunch of review copies and ebooks which I am going to review in time. Wish me luck with reading this summer because I am going to be very busy...

Paperbacks and DVDs!



DVDs: Hancock (which I have already watched and loved)
Dirty Dancing (Already watched - me and this movie are now best friends for life.)
It's Complicated
2 Fast 2 Furious (FINALLY saw the sequel. Not as good as one at all, but okayish I guess.)

Paperbacks:
| Bag of Bones - Stephen King | Joni - Joni | Psalms as Poetry | Fairest - Marissa Meyer | A Thousand Pieces of You - Claudia Gray |

I am really looking forward to reading Joni's autobiography because her condition is a unique one and her journey is truly moving. I have been collecting more Stephen King since reading On Writing as well. The Psalms as poetry was actually a gift but it sounds like it will be interesting!

I have already read Fairest and I read it in the hours after it arrived because I literally couldn't wait xD I have also already read A Thousand Pieces of You and wrote a review of it when it was released here. But I loved the book so much and the cover, I got a paperback version instead of simply the E-arc.

Giveaway Time!  I am throwing this giveaway to celebrate 1500 pinterest followers! So this giveaway is courtesy of those lovely pinteresters, and definitely for you! Open internationally,


Enter to win a signed copy of the book There's a House in the Land by Shaun D. Mullen. I will say that this is my book, which means I have read it once. It's not a spanking new edition, but I hope you might want it anyway. 


Olivia's Question: Which books have you recently acquired?

  1. How are you ever going to get to all of those?! I love the variety. I would be entertained for a long while with a haul like that. I want to read Tick, Madness So Discreet, and so many others. I have Witch Hunter cued up for the summer. Happy reading.
