Owl Post (1)

Hello guys!  Today I'm introducing a new feature in the blog. This meme is created by Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries inspired by In My Mailbox by The Story Siren. I've been meaning to do this since forever and I just love this idea of Brodie. I am such a Potterhead and I'm beating myself up for not thinking about this so kudos to Brodie!

Before I show you guys what books I hauled, I'll tell you 3 things first.
1. I'll do this on Sundays but not every Sunday. Most likely I'm going to have this every 1st Sunday or last Sunday of the month.
2. You can link your own versions of weekly haul at the end of my every Owl Post. I'd surely visit them, I love seeing new books!
3. Since I'm going to only post occasionally, my Owl Post will most likely be massive not because I am rich ( I wish!) but because the books just accumulated throughout the weeks.

So my first Owl Post is books I've bought and received in the month of May and the last 2 weeks of April. 

Here they are:

Bought

The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, and the The Hunger Games: Tribute Guide by Emily Seife - already read this titles but I like to have my own copies. 
Away Laughing in a Fast Camel by Louise Rennison - I absolutely adore the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series so I bought this one. This hardcover was on sale. :)
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - Browse through this one and I could say I was freaked out by the images. 
Divergent by Veronica Roth - Finally bought a copy. Will read this v. v. soon.
The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan - This is the latest installment in the Kane Chronicle's series.  
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan- I scored this copy on a sale. It was so cheap, it's like 75% off the original hardcover price.
Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Shroud - Bought this on a sale as well. A total steal, this one is.

Received

Won the Starter swag from Just A Girl Geek!

Bewitching by Alex Flinn (ARC) - I won this from Panda Reads.
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers - I won this from Making the  Grade.
Enclave by Ann Aguirre - I won this from The Nocturnal Library.

Thank you so much! :)

That's it! It was the summer and I am broke but hey we can never have too many books! :) I'll be very busy this whole year getting through all that books. My balloon owl was so exhausted I have to replaced him every now and then. 

How many owls did you get knocked out this week? C'mon share em! :D

    Great haul! =D Which one do you plan to read first?

    PS -- Isn't it cool to get an ARC, then have Customs open it and find out they can't charge you anything for it? ;-)
