Haul from the Hummingbird (#4)!

Hi everybody! You may have noticed that I didn't do this feature last week, so this post is a wrap-up of books I've received the past two weeks. I haven't posted much lately, but you can expect things to get back to normal soon! Exams are finally over! *insert breathless shriek here* Talking about excessive happiness! :)

Since I love rewarding myself to the point of spoiling, I decided to get many some books for my Summer read!

(clicking on the picture would bring you to the Goodreads page) 

ENORMOUS thanks to Harper Collins, Tribute books, Harlequin Teen, and Abrams! :)

I'm so excited to read What's Left of Me! I've been wanting the book ever since I saw the cover, so I'm very glad to have the chance to read it! I heard that Pushing the Limits is a touching and lovely story, so I can't wait to dive into! I'm in the mood for historical YA lately. My first thought when I read the blurb of A Soldier's Secret: Mulan, anyone? Shadow and Bone, oh-em-gee! Finally.

I received The Color of Snow for the book tour. Lovely cover! Darkness Before Dawn looks so good! I love the cover of Beauty, so I just know that I have to buy it! I was a bit hesitant to pick Arise, but I have to know what happen to Amelia and Joshua.

I love the dark tone in Elizabeth Scott's books. Living Dead Girl is my favorite book by her, but I hope Miracle could be my new favorite. I read Easy two weeks ago and fell in love with the story. It's so good and I'd recommend it to anyone! I have a thing for fairytale, so Enchanted is an instant-buy. Good Oil looks really good! I love Australian author!

I hope everyone had a great week with books too! Looking forward to see what everyone else got! Happy Sunday lovely people! :)


  1. Yeah ! We got some pretty similar books. :)
    Hopefully, we'll be reviewing them at the same time so we can compare. :D
    I love the cover of Beauty and really need to get it some time. :)
    Miracle sounds awesome. I love E.Scott's books. :)
    Hope you enjoy all of them ! :)
    Happy reading ! :D

  2. I saw another blogger mention The Colour of Snow last week, and thought it sounded like a great read, so I hope you enjoy it, as well as your other books! I haven't heard of Beauty until now, but I just read the synposis and it sounds very intriguing, I'll look forward to your review. :) Happy reading!

  3. beauty has a really eye catching cover! enjoy!!

  4. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Shadow & Bone. I loved that book! :) The cover for Beauty is great. I can't even remember what that book is about but I would probably buy it for the cover alone. ;) Amazing haul, Hilda! It looks like you have lots of amazing books to keep you busy! :D

  5. Omg Hilda! First of all yay that all your exams are over! And second this is the best book haul I've seen in ages!
