My Poisonous Book Haul (71)


This has now become my replacement for In My Mailbox. Since that feature has made some changes, I decided that I needed to move on as well. This feature has a name that's more catered to my blog's theme, but it's exactly the same. Basically, you create a post of the books you either received in the mail/e-mail, bought at a bookstore, or borrowed from the library.

So these last few weekends, I attended both days of the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the Pasadena Teen Book Fest, and the Ontario Teen Book Fest, and boy did I have an amazing time at every single event! Not only that, I got some amazing books signed. I also went a signing a little while ago with Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows, but I just haven't posted a MPBH in a while. Speaking of that, there are going to be a lot of review books on here, so this is a pretty big post. This is probably the biggest book haul I've ever had...like, ever. Ready?
