  1. Ooh, I'm planning to read Not a Drop to Drink this week! I'm also hoping to read All the Bright Places soon as well. I've heard great things about both. :) The Raven Cycle tarot cards look awesome. Congrats on winning those!

    Have a great week, Rachel. :)

  2. Those are more than I can imagine! I can't even see myself owning or receiving that much books at once! I see most of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy them!!! :D

  3. Youu won so many books, I'm so jealous! The entire Raven Boys trilogy? You're gonna be reading some good books soon!

  4. Holy shigah girlie!! I have gotten ZERO bookmail since the first. I did buy a bunch of 99¢ and $1.99 ebooks though. The best ebook deal I got was all 12 Anne of Green Gables titles in a set with 142 extra AoGG short stories, for only $1.99! I hope your contest winning luck continues! That is, unless it is a giveaway I want, then I am giving you the evil eye, lol.

  5. LOOK AT ALL THOSE. I'm hoping Wicked Thing will be good because I couldn't get into it at all when I first had a go ://

  6. SO. MANY. BOOKS! *heart eyes* I don't even know where to begin but I see a ton of great ones. Not A Drop to Drink is one of my all time favorites. Enjoy all of those books, Rachel! :D

    Em @ Books & Cleverness

  7. GOSH. Look at all those books! The Raven Boys is what caught my eyes! So excited to see what you think. Great haul, Rachel! <3

  8. Amazing haul girl!! So many awesome books and the Raven Cycle tarot!! Wooohooo!!

    Happy reading Rachel!!

  9. I really want to read The Way We Bared Our Souls so badly! It looks so emotional and interesting.

  10. Some of my favorite books are featured here!! That The Raven Cycle giveaway is to die for! And I plan to read Magnolia soon myself! I've heard great things!!

    Happy Reading!

  11. WHAT YOU WON SO MANY BOOKS! How do you guys enter and win so much :( I've entered a lot and only one ONCE in three years. There must be a life algorithm somewhere and I didn't get the memo... haha. So many books <3 <3 <3 ENJOY THEM, GIRL! CAN'T WAIT TO READ YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT THEM!

  12. Wow! Awesome haul! I WANT City of Savages! Of Metal and Wishes was wonderful! I'm probably going to be adding Ghosts of Heaven to my shelves very soon. Enjoy your new books and happy reading!

  13. You got some amazing books here, Rachel! I love Maggie Steifvater's The Raven Cycle series and I hope you love it as well! Enjoy your mountain of lovelies! :)

  14. DAMN, look at that haul! You must be so busy ;D HOW CAN YOU WIN SO MANY BOOKS? Admittedly, I very rarely enter giveaways but that's like woah!! Can't wait to know what you think of A Wicked Thing since I'm debating reading it or not!

  15. Wow Rachel, that is a great haul! I am kind of in awe right now. ;) I see a lot of books that I've been wanting to read so I am excited to hear your thoughts on them!

  16. WOW. You came, saw, and conquered. Congratulations on all the wins! I loved Laini Taylor's books, Perfect Couple, Magnolia, Pivot Point, Deep Blue, The Chaos of Stars, Of Metal and Wishes, On the Fence. I enjoyed but didn't love Not A Drop To Drink, A Wicked Thing, Born Wicked, The Way We Bared Our Souls. I didn't like Love & Other Theories, Lailah. And I have Kissing Ted Callahan! So I've read most of the books you have here - that makes me so proud, for some reason LOL. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous weekend :)

    Check out my STS post!

  17. WOW. Just wow. I have been dying to read The Ghosts of Heaven, The Way We Bared Our Souls, and City of Savages! And I am reading All the Bright Places now. But I am scared! Ohh and I need to read Since You've Been Gone, and The Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and The Raven Boys, and Of Metal and Wishes. Honestly, this could be the most impressive book haul of all time! Hope you enjoy them :)
