My Book Haul (1)

From now on I will be posting My Book Haul on Saturdays.
Feel free to link up in the comments if you would like to share your mailbox post with me (and others) to check out.  

I had a pretty good week this time around.  I got a few books for review and received a big box from Anna @ Anna's Book Blog for my daughter and myself.  She is thrilled with the books Anna sent and wanted me to tell Anna that she has excellent taste in manga! So, onto the pics!

Vampire Knight 2, 3, 8, 10 by Matsuri Hino
Maximum Ride 2 and 3 by James Patterson and NaRae Lee

A HUGE thank you to Anna for all of the above books!

So what did everyone else get this week?

Anna is awesome, isn't she? I won her "Box O' Books" giveaway (it was a surprise box of books) and there so many great ones! Some of them turned out to be books I still needed in a few series I've been collecting, so that was great! It looks like you got some great ones too from her! Yay!

Happy Reading Amy!

@Amber She IS awesome! She deserves the praise. I saw that you won the box of books and I was so excited. They couldn't go to a better home. LOL
Enjoy your reading as well!

Nice haul! Grim looks really good. I hadn't heard of it before but I just went and looked it up.

Enjoy your reads!

You're welcome for the books. I hope you and your daughter enjoy them.

I agree with Nerd Girls, Grim does look pretty good. :)

Wow you got a lot of great stuff this week from everyone. :)

Vampire Knight is a really great manga but you do have to read time starting with volume one because te stories don't make sense if you don't follow them from the first one.

I have never read the Maximum Ride series in manga form or the book form. I guess I just have something against James Patterson because that man comes out with a new book every other week and it is impossible that he writes all of that. My boyfriend and I joke that he has long been dead and they just have a team of ghost writers writing all of his stuff while still placing his picture on the back of the book lol

I hope you enjoy everything. I was just looking at Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale and Geared for Pleasure the other day. I'm leary to start the Faerie Tale one because it seems part of a 10ish book series and everyone knows I don't need to get yet another romance series that is too long to catch up with. I'm sure for you it is no problem considering how fast you read lol.

Well now that I rambled on for forever I'm going to wish you happy reading!

Great haul! Love the JD Robb books, so hope you enjoy Eve and Roarke as much as I do! And love the sound of Not Your Ordinary Fairie Tale. Happy reading!
