Haul from the Hummingbird (#6)!

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to do this feature again. Today is another few weeks edition! I'm trying to limit my review-books, so I don't do NetGalley for now. Boy, do I have any idea how hard it could be. Especially with books like Stormdancer and Speechless showing up! Anybody sharing my on-going lament? :P

Now for the good haul from my lovely (and super strong) hummingbird! 

(clicking on the book cover will bring you to the Goodreads page!)

First shelf

I received Hallowed the same week of my birthday, so I take it as unofficial birthday present! Thank you so  much, lovely Riya! You should totally check out her blog because she has the cutest blog (and such amazing reviews) ever! Plus, I LOVE that girl very much! x)  Such a Rush is a book that has been on my wish list for a long time! Dante's Girl has one of the cutest cover I've even seen in... decades? :P Insignia receives many positive reviews and I'm so intrigued to read it!

Second shelf

I love the cover of The Forsaken very much, it's VERY COOL beyond words! Oh my gosh, Tiger Lily! Finally! Fun fact only, Peter Pan was one of my earliest book crush! ;)  I hunt for awesomeness in I Hunt Killers! Sounds like the perfect book to balance my cute contemporaries! x)

I read like snail lately, so I'm hoping to quicken up my pace soon! A bit hard since all I want is sleeping all day. Must be side effect of holiday. I think I'm in hibernation right now. That's right, folks, summer hibernation!

Enough of my ramblings! What did you guys get? Can't wait to see everyone's amazing hauls! :)


  1. LOL! I slept so much the past few days! if i wasn't at camp, i would sleep all day. :) Fantastic haul!!!!! Tiger lily is truely astonding )in my opinion) and i hope you enjoy it! Also, enjoy all your new books Hilda!!!!!!

  2. Such a Rush looks great. I hope you enjoy the books you got! :)

  3. Wow, great haul! Hallowed was fantastic, and I really really want to read Tiger Lily and Such a Rush soon.

  4. HILDA I LOVE YOU!!! Happy birthday!! hope you enjoy Hallowed!! :') OMG You got such an awesome haul. Such A Rush ROCKS. Seriously. AND I have a feeling that you are going to fall head over heels in love with Grayson, that super hunk of a book hottie. I know I did!! <333 And Tiger Lily seems really cool too. Alex Flinn, who is one of my favorite authors of all time, said it was amazing, so I'm pretty sure it will be. Hope you enjoy your fab haul, sweets!

  5. I think you're going to enjoy I Hunt Killers a lot, Hilda! Jazz is such an interesting character, and that book wasn't what I expected at all. I keep seeing Insignia around and hearing great things. Same for Tiger Lily.
    Great haul, my darling. Happy reading to you. :)

  6. Look at all that awesomeness, Hilda ! I'm so jealous. :)
    Dante's Girl seems like such a cute read. I agree the cover is absolutely fabulous! :)
    I also got Insignia, so I can't wait to start reading it myself.
    I hope you enjoy all your books, hon ! <3

  8. Such a Rush - yay! And I am just reading Insignia now and I have heard good things about The Forsaken. Enjoy your books!

  9. OMG! I really want to read I Hunt Killers. It sounds like such an incredible book. I'm yet to read any of Cynthia Hand's books but I hear they're awesome.

  10. Ooh, looks like a ton of great books! I'm totally jealous :D (hahaha kidding!) but all of them look so good. I can't wait to dig into my copy of Forsaken. It's at home so GRR! Gonna have to wait 'till I get back from vacay :'(( Happy Reading and Hope you have (had??) a wonderful birthday hun :)

    Confessions of a Readaholic

  11. I wish I had the strength to stay away from NetGalley. It's just to tempting! ;) This is a great haul, Hilda! I really hope you like Insignia and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Tiger Lily. I have a copy of that too which I can't seem to squeeze in! Enjoy my dear! :) And it was your birthday? Happy birthday!

  12. That is such an awesome haul, Hilda!!! <3 -pats your hummingbird on the head-
    Wow...I'm still waiting for my copy of I Hunt Killers, and I'd love to hear what you think of Insignia and Tiger Lily! You lucky lucky girl, and of course, a very happy booktastic birthday to you <333333

  13. So jealous of Hallowed and Such a Rush; I want to read them both so badly! I have read nothing but AMAZING reviews about Tiger Lily, even more jealous of you now, Hilda!

    Enjoy these gorgeous books, I can't wait to read your beautiful reviews of them.<3

  14. Ohh, such an awesome haul! I can't WAIT to read The Forsaken, it sounds seriously fantastic! I got I Hunt Killers and Tiger Lily too, actually. :D LOL, but I've been too scared to post my mailbox post lately, since it's one month old now... Hahah. Crazyyyy. Doesn't make it better I got two series set... *cough* But enough about me blabbing about. I hope you enjoy!!

    P.S: I replied to your e-mail, but I'm not sure if it managed to end up in spam or anything. I'm totally interested *nods excitedly*

  15. Great haul Heidi. Dante's Girl sounds like a cute read and I'm looking forward to reading The Forsaken too. I'm like a snail myself lately, can't seem to get any reading done at all. I need more speed lol.

  16. Great haul. I really want to read I Hunt Killers and Insignia. They seem like different books, yet very interesting in unique ways.


  17. Uh oh, NetGalley withdrawels. LoL. You got a lot of great books like always! Hallowed is frustrating as all else but still amazing <3 I really disliked Such A Rush, but I seem to be the only one =/ I just heard of Dante's Girl on a blog the other day and thought it sounded like the perfect summer read! Hope you enjoy them =)

  18. Dante's Girl looks so ADORBS! I have a copy of Insignia too and I want to read it soon!

  19. Hallowed is SO awesome! I honestly LOVE it so much! I am reading Dante's Girl right now and it is SO cute! And I seriously want to read Tiger Lily and Such A Rush!!! They both sound so awesome!!! Enjoy these awesome books :-)


  20. Hilda, I love your post! Hallowed is gorgeous both on the inside and out; Tiger Lily was an exquisite novel too. *sigh* I always loved Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, Tink and Wendy. Man, now I have this sudden craving to magically fly to Neverland... Anyways, great haul you have there! I look forward to your opinions on all of them. :)
