Book Haul #94: The Royal Fangirl Stack

Hello fellow bookworms!!!

Good day friends! I hope you have all had an amazing week!

I have a huge bookhaul this week! Not what I was planning right before BEA, lol! But, if you haven't see it on twitter yet...
there's a hashtag for book trades (#booksfortrade, #booksfortradeUK and #booksfortradeAU) and many book bloggers have been trading unwanted books... I have received a lot of books that I want to read, but mostly books that I've been wanting to add to my collections: like the Lauren Oliver ARCs, Lola and Anna, and the Jennifer E. Smith books/ARCs :) 

After shelving these, I need to finally make my schedule and finalize my stuff for BEA next week! I'm so excited to be going again! I'm looking forward to meeting more bloggers and authors, and not being so anxious the whole time :) 
If you're going, please say HI!... I might have candy to share, or gum! lol!

Until next week, happy reading!!!
