Book Haul for Late November

It feels like its been forever since I've posted a book haul on my blog!  I've been doing them all on my YouTube channel.  But I've gotten so behind in my videos, I've decided I'm not recording any more until I am caught up.  But I still wanted to share, so here we go!  This covers about the last week or so.

Also, I wanted to make a couple of quick announcements/reminders.  

Danasquare and I are hosting a read-a-thon from Dec. 9-22nd.  Its all about getting all your reading and challenges done before the end of the year.  Look for the graphic on my right hand sidebar to sign up or get more info.  #readingcram

Also, my favorite Goodreads group (that I'm now a mod of--YAY!) is hosting several awesome upcoming Author Q&As!  Check out my right side bar for that graphic!!  And we are still working on booking even more authors for everyone to chat with!  So far, we've done Jennifer A Nielsen, Ilsa J. Bick, and Marissa Meyer, and they have been a blast!

Now onto the books!

  1. Awesome haul Jen. I haven't heard of he Infinity Ring before, it looks amazing on Goodreads. Will add it to my list :)

  2. Cool, thanks! The Infinity Ring series is a MG short chapter book series, but I got them from Tessa's school book fair thinking we might both like them! And I loved how they are written by different accomplished YA authors!!

  3. Wow, great haul Jen! I really enjoyed Inferno, I got it as soon as it came out and wasn't disappointed. I got Witch Finder for review as well and tried to read it but didn't get very far. Thanks for sharing!

    1. That's a little discouraging, I was hoping I'd like Witch Finder, but I'll give it a chance! My mom also loved Inferno! Thanks for stopping!

  4. I like your haul, Jen! I didn't make a haul post last week, so this means more books to show this coming weekend. I haven't read Inferno yet. It made a huge controversy here in Manila because it was mentioned in the book. Sometimes, Pinoys tend to overreact! LOL!

    1. Can't wait to read about that, and then the controversy! LOL Thanks for stopping!


I love reading your comments, and will try to respond as much as possible!
