Hauling Sunday LVI

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great week-end. Mine is pretty good so far :) The weather is really nice and that's great. Got to hang out with my friends a little yesterday evening and I'm getting ready for the Oyster Fest. Watched a bit of tennis as well. Yay for Djokovic for being in the finale... but in the other one, I was hoping for Murray to come out victorious. Yes, I know, chances were slim, but one can hope right? Just as I'm hoping Stosur will win tonight!!

Oh I went to the optometrist on Friday evening concerning my eyes and she said everything was okay. The reason why my left eye is bothering me is because it's very dry for some reasons. However, my vision and everything is good. Phew, what a relief!

Now, the only thing that would make this week-end perfect was if I could read a bit more ^_^; I started a book but it was really bland and had to put it aside. Sigh. Now, I've started another one and I'm half-way through... but I don't know how much time I'll have to read the rest of this week-end. I guess it's for me to find out later!

Okay, I'll stop rambling and introduce my new pretties :)

Got these books on last Sunday, taking advantage at the "Buy 3, get the 4th free" promotion :)

Revenge at Bella Terra by Christina Dodd - Technically, I should have waited after reading Secrets at Bella Terra before being Revenge at Bella Terra... However, I needed a 4th book and quite frankly, out of the two books, the story of Revenge was the one that I wanted to read.

Demon Marked by Meljean Brook - This is the book that spurred the bookstore adventure LOL. That's the book I needed to get my hands on and yay, I did! :)

Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn - I met Ms Quinn at the RWA Literacy signing and got Haunting Desire IIRC. While I don't need to read a series in order, it's always nice... especially since Haunting Beauty was being re-released in paperback :) Plus, Ms Quinn is Canadian :)

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June by Robin Benway - Alex reviewed this book not long ago and it sounded like something I would like to read :) I love psychic powers :)

Archangel's Blade by Nalini Singh - Of course, I had to get this book because it's written by Ms Singh. I'm still a bit wary of this series; I prefer the Psy-Changelings series... but I was curious at the change of characters. You never know, perhaps Dmitri will trigger my love for this series.

The follow books are some that I've gotten in August, but forgot to include in my Hauling Sunday posts ^_^;

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare - Ms Dare has just recently changed publisher and I was curious to see if it would reflect in her writing :) For some reasons, Avon's historical romances really work well for me.

For I Have Sinned by Darynda Jones - Little novella that takes place between First Grave on the Right and Second Grave on the Left. I've enjoyed the first book and thought I should give this a try :)

Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - I've had this book on my radar bever since Heather Webber gave this a 5 stars on Goodreads. Unfortunately back then, Flat-Out Love was only available on Kindle... Then when I checked not too long ago, it was available in other format and I jumped on it! :)

So yes, lots of new books in the past two weeks :) It's great to be buying books LOL.


  1. Yay! I hope you like April, May and June!!
    I've heard of Flat Out Love -heard it was great - so I can't wait for your review of it.

    I got a Night to Surrender too, and I'm excited, it will be my first Tessa Dare book =D

  2. Nath, definitely the Brook and the Singh! Yay! I'm hoping Dmitri will also do it for me... otherwise this series by Singh will be a bust for me. :(

    I look forward to your thoughts of Revenge at Bella Terra and Flat Out Love. :)

  3. Wow - haven't read a Christine Dodd book in ages. Use to love her historicals, curious to see how you like her contemporary.

    Very nice haul Nath. Good mix of genres too. :)

  4. Alex - I hope so too :) It's a good thing that I'm in the mood for YA :)

    I'll try to review Flat-Out Love soon :) and I hope you enjoy the Tessa Dare!

    Hilcia - I'll be curious to see how you like Archangel's Blade, Hils :)

    LOL, now I have a lot of pressure to review!!

    Leslie - I don't read her religiously, but from time to time, I pick up her contemporary :) She has a habit of writing gritty ones with characters that may not be so likable... LOL.

  5. Good haul Nath. I still need to get my hands on the Meljean and Nalini. *sigh* Soon I hope!!

  6. Ames - Yes! I'm happy :)

    LOL, you can wait a little Ames as you're not up-to-date in both series, right? :P

  7. I have Archangel's Blade and of course, you were there when I got an ARC of Tessa Dare's A Night to Surrender at RWA. ;) I read it over vacation and while I thought it was cute and very enjoyable... I didn't think the writing or the plot had as much of a sweeping romance feel to it that her first two trilogies do. I'll keep reading her work, though. I do really enjoy her books.

    Enjoy all your loot!

    And Yay! for Stosur, right!? :)

  8. Christine - LOL, I know you've already read the Tessa Dare :)

    I started reading the Tessa Dare and had to put it aside. It just wasn't engaging me ^_^;

    Yes, for Stosur!
