October Book Haul (Oct. 7th, 2012)

Another week, another book haul a-la In My Mailbox (The Story Siren) / Stacking the Shelves (Tynga's Reviews) / Mailbox Monday. I got bought some great titles this week - including some that have been on my wishlist for quite a while...

  • Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link - I bought this short story collection for my Short Story Challenge.
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - Is it weird to be a fan of an author that I've never read? Because if it is, then I'm super weird 'cause I adore Neil and have never read a thing of his.
  • A Study in Sherlock (Anthology) and Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the D'Urbervilles by Kim Newman - Nothing beats a bit of Sherlock fanfiction.
  • Hounded by Kevin Hearne 
  • Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King - I admit it: I only bought this because it had wolves on the cover. I thought, "Well, since I've always been meaning to try Stephen King, I might as well try this wolf-y one." Also, short stories!
  • The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemesin - I have yet to read a bad review for this book, so I am rather excited to see what I think!
  • Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead  - I haven't started Mead's Dark Swan series yet (this is book 3) but I trust her enough to buy the books as I see them!
That's all for this week! What did y'all find in your mailbox?


  1. Good haul this week! I love Richelle Mead but Storm Born is the only one of her adult novels I've read. The others are on my TBR list.

    Check out my IMM & SP.

  2. I love Richelle Mead. I haven't read this series, but I've read everything else by her. She is absolutely brilliant! Have fun with these books :)

    Here's my this week's IMM.


  3. Haha, no you can totally be a fan of an author and not have read his/her books. I love John Green (from Vlogbrothers), but have only read one of his books. I am reading another of his now, but I totally get what you mean.

    I have been wanting to read The Graveyard Book for awhile, but still haven't gotten around to it.

    Anyway, happy reading :)

    Here's my IMM

  4. Happy Reading!

    You got some great books. I cant wait to see what you think of them. I havent read any Richelle Mead Books but I have heard she is a great author!

    Check out my IMM:


  5. Great haul this week. I've not read Mead's DS series yet but I've read her others and loved them. I really need to pick this up.
