Book Haul #10 (8/8/11)

My book hauls may get rather unimpressive, now that I've instituted a self-imposed book buying ban! I'm too reckless...


Fallen (Fallen, #1)
by Lauren Kate

Source: local library

Format: Audio CD

Genres: Paranormal Romance (YA)

Not being too sure if I'd like this one, I decided to check it out from the library. Sure, it's pretty popular with, like, everyone--but, I don't always go with the flow. I hope I do, though...

The Emerald Atlas (The Books of the Beginning, #1)
by John Stephens

Source: local library

Format: hardcover

Genres: fantasy, adventure (Middle Grade)

Since this is being touted as the next "Harry Potter", I figured I'd better read this, and read it quick. It's actually very quickly gaining critical acclaim with a lot of readers and critics, so maybe it has some great potential, after all...


Black Wood (A Witch Rising, #1)
by Jayde Scott

Source: the author (review copy)

Format: .mobi file (Kindle)

Genres: fantasy, paranormal (YA/Middle Grade)

The author followed my review policy to the "T", so I looked into her portfolio of folios (lol), and found that she had just self-published this title. I immediately contacted her for a review copy after reading a bit of the opening scene, since I already found the characters quirky and brilliant. (So far, this is a great read!)

Immortal (Immortal, #1)
by Gillian Shields


Format: MP3

Genres: Paranormal Romance, fantasy (YA) made this title available as a free MP3 download during their special "Summer Reads" program. I don't know anything about it, but I'm always up for a good PNR if I can get one, especially as an audiobook.

And, that's that, folks! What, did you all get this week?
