Big Fat BOOK HAUL. OH YEEEEAHHH.

So in the book blogging world, people usually call posts like these, 'In My Mailbox' posts, its a 'meme' made by The Story Siren.

BUT, 'book haul' sounds so much more fun.

So, now, before you eye orgasm out at seeing the lovely pile of books, [- yes, PILE! :D], I want you to know, I'll be having a giveaway for my Paki readers soon!
Comment on this post telling me which book you'd like to win out of the pile, and just maybe, if you're lucky that book will be up for grabs!

Anyway, without further ado, here are the new additions to my growing to-be-read pile:

yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaahh, you like that? ;3

These books above are old books and new ones mixed up.  I got some from Galaxy Books and some from Readings- both in Lahore.

AND THEY WERE SO CHEAP.
It was heaven.

Then there are the super-brand-new books below, which were more expensive but I made my mom buy them for me anyway because I want to go to Karachi and I didn't because of stupid reasons and I was sad.

Glossy, beauties.

Here are some more pictures of some closeups:

13: Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison


So, I've read quite a few of the above, and How to be Popular by Meg Cabot and 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher are two completely different, but absolutely WONDERFUL books. Number 13, Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison is hilarious and SUCH a fun read!

I bought some of the above for my sisters, though I probably will re-read the ones I've already read- and obv the rest.
