Massive Christmas Book Haul!

This post is LOONG overdue. I originally wanted to do a vlog of my giant haul, but well, yeah.
These are all books that I've collected since Christmas, it's a LOT. AND they make me happy! 

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

First up:
Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)- I WON this from Goodreads giveaway!! It's my first ever ARC! WOOT! I've been excited for this book forever and I can't wait to read it! It's due to be published end of next month I believe.
Obsidian (Jennifer L. Armentrout) - I received this one from my bookish secret santa! Thank you!!
I attempted to read this one but alas, it twas a DNF. Boo. You can read my review HERE if you'd like.
I received all of the following books as Christmas gifts from my mom and grandma. I asked for these specifically, cause they would have no clue what books to buy for me.
Casual Vacancy (J. K. Rowling)
Second Chance Summer (Morgan Matson)
Bunheads (Sophie Flack)
I also got that handsome owl from my mom! I have a recent obsession.

Sweet Evil (Missy Higgins)
Twilight: The Graphic Novel Vol. 1 (Stephenie Meyer, Young Kim)
Crewel (Gennifer Albin)
Rootless (Chris Howard)
Black City (Elizabeth Richards)
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking (Susan Cain)
The Curiosities: A Collection of Stories (Maggie Stiefvater, Tessa Gratton, Brenna Yovanoff)

Lips Touch: Three Times (Laini Taylor) Finished this, 3.5/5
Throne of Glass (Sarah J. Maas) Finished this one too 5/5
Stolen (Lucy Christopher) - I actually bought this one with some xmas money- Also read 3.5/5

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone Audiobook- narrated by Jim Dale
OKAY. So the rest of my haul are books I bought myself from Barnes & Noble or Amazon with Christmas money.
Easy (Tammara Webber)
Meant To Be (Lauren Morrill)
My Life Next Door (Huntley Fitzpatrick)
Pushing the Limits (Katie McGarry)
Beta (Rachel Cohn)

Grave Mercy (Robin LaFevers) - Reading now, so far so good!
Splintered (A.G. Howard)
Under the Never Sky (Veronica Rossi) - already read this on my Kindle but needed the hard copy
Through the Ever Night (Veronica Rossi)

Opal (Jennifer L. Armentrout) - WHAT WAS I THINKING??
Onyx (Jennifer L. Armentrout) - See above.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (Jennifer L. Smith)
Now for a couple non-book gifts!
Blu-rays of:
Pitch Perfect- I watched this for the first time after I got it and have to say it wasn't nearly as good or funny as I was expecting it to be. It was okay.
The Hunger Games - I've watched this like 5 times. Loves it.
NOW. For my most awesome-est gift I got for Christmas from my Dad:
 IPAD!!   I love it so much! Still learning how to use it and stuff. I'm always the last person to get any type of new technology.

SO. That's my Christmas book haul. I still have Christmas money to spend but I want to try and save it so I can use it to buy new releases that are coming out this year that I'm excited for.

Leave a comment with your haul link and I'll check it out!

Stolen was a powerful read and Pushing the Limits is great, I just finished that. I am jealous of Black City and Splintered and I need to stop messing around and just go read Grave Mercy already!! I hope you love everything!
