Book Haul #8 (7/25/11)

I'd say this was a good week for me and my book hauls! Next week should be, too...

I decided to go back to hitting up my local library for some titles I've yet to read, and feel too anxious about purchasing. I hate buying a book I end up hating after I read it, so the library saves me from that possible commitment. Plus, they have some books on CD and audiobooks rule!

From the Library

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
by Cassandra Clare

Format: audio CD

I know, I know. How could I have NOT read this book already? I must be insane. It's only because I've been afraid I'd not like it, but I knew I'd just have to borrow it from the library one of these days so I could see if I actually would like it, or not. And, I can give my tired eyes a break and just listen to it. Sounds good to me.

Infinity (The Chronicles of Nick, #1)
by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Format: paperback

I've been wanting to read this book for a while now, and I know a little bit about The Dark-Hunter series by the same author. I just hope for some good characters.

Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.
by Caissie St. Onge

Format: paperback

I've already starting read this and it is totally funny so far! I like stories like this that poke fun at the current popular perception of vampires and vampire lore.

From The Book Depository

Format: paperback

This brand new series looks really, really promising as it has a lot of elements in it that make me want to read it: historical, western, steampunk, paranormal, fantasy, a super hunky male lead as is evidenced by the super hunky male on the cover... I'm not sure it's missing anything from my perspective.

Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #1)
by Kevin Hearne

Format: mass market paperback

This series has been blasting off into the stratosphere of popularity lately! Before I realized this, I read Kevin Hearne's prequel short story to this book, "Clan Rathskeller", which is free over on, and it was super funny and awesome. It sold me on the idea of buying the first book, so, naturally, I did. So far, there are three books out in this series. They are getting released like hotcakes!

That's it for me this week. What books did you all haul in?


  1. Fun haul!

    I'm not a Cassandra Clare fan, but I did enjoy Infinity...Dead Iron is on my "want-want-want" list, and you know I loved Hounded! :)

    Happy reading!
    BJ @ Dark Side of the Covers

  2. Thanks, BJ! Glad to hear good things about Infinity and Hounded from you. I'll be reviewing Dead Iron when I finally get to read it, so you'll see what I think of it.

    Have a great day!
