Book Haul #8

I'm sorry that I missed last week, y'all! I feel like such a slacker. ;P Anywho, these last few weeks have been-- surprising to say the least. I got some awesome new books that I can't wait to read-- and a buddy read might be in the works. (One can hope!) BUT. I have big news, and so does everyone else.
Google Reader is being discontinued. I recommend Feedly. (:

Now, on to the books! (:


The Plains of Laramie by Lauren Paine (Gifted)
Gunsmoke by T.T. Flynn (Gifted)
The Rules by Stacey Kade (I have no idea, but it came from Disney. o.O)
Perfection Unleashed by Jade Kerrion (Accepted Review Pitch)
Fitz by Mick Cochrane (Randombuzzers)
The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper (Randombuzzers-- I didn't realize that this was a series!)
Dualed by Elsie Chapman (Gifted by Sarah from Book-A-Holic-- she's awesome, seriously! xoxox)
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin (Traded for)
Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally (Won)
That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard (Requested)
Lauren Yanofsky Hates the Holocaust by Leanne Lieberman (Won)

So, how do you feel about these books? Are they any good? Terrible? Also, what do y'all think about the impending G reader doom? Let me know in the comments! (:

  2. Great haul. I loved All These Things I've Done, but haven't read Because It Is My Blood yet. I really want to because I love Gabrielle Zevin's writing style. That Time I Joined the Circus looks like a fun read too. Thanks for sharing and happy reading.

    1. Thanks! I've been waiting to read that one forever-- it's one of my most anticipated, I think. I haven't heard anything about it, though. It just looks good, you know? (: It does! I hope that it's as good as it looks. (: Thank you! (:

  3. Awesome haul Megan! I really want to read Dualed, I've heard mixed reviews though so I keep putting it off.

    I am devastated about Google Reader(ok... slightly dramatic lol). I am such a creature of habit so to think I'll have to get used to something else. Bleh. I did create an account at Feedly though, and they have an Android app so thats the one I'm most likely to switch to!

    1. I'm not sure about Dualed either-- Sarah says that it's awesome, and we have similar taste in books, so I'm giving it a shot. But SO MANY mixed reviews!

      Haha, I totally know what you mean! I just like Feedly because it's so pretty, LOL! I am using it, though, and it's helping me to keep up with my favorite blogs-- GFC is so...impersonal. LOL! That doesn't actually make sense. Thanks for stopping by, Lauren! (:

  6. Yay for Things I Can't Forget Megan, I found it to be a lot different from Kenneally's previous two novels, but I still enjoyed it. Also I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Dualed! Happy reading! :)

    1. I'm really excited about Things I can't Forget, but I'm a little nervous, because everyone says that it's different than her first two books! I hope that I like it. Dualed looks good, so I'm looking forward to reading it too! Thanks! (:

  7. Megan...I am slightly freaking out on you right now. Oh, did I say slightly? I meant MAJORLY. You have THAT TIME I JOINED THE CIRCUS in your freaking, lovely hands! Did that sound creepy? I don't care ;) Great haul!

  11. All These Things I've Done is amazing! Definitely make reading that a priority!

    I'm so bummed about the loss of GR; I barely commented this weekend but am feeling more optimistic after discovering Netvibes. I've also tried feedly and bloglovin and am waiting for my subscriptions to import at The Old Reader. I am trying to be excited about this opportunity to try a new reader instead of majorly disappointed.

    1. I'm glad to hear it! It's been on my TBR FOREVER, seriously. Can't wait to read it! (:

      Eh, I actually never really used it. But I do use Feedly-- I'm glad that something good came of this! Ooh, I haven't heard of that one. Feedly and Bloglines seem to be the ones that everyone is going for right now. I hope that you find one you like soon! (:
