Goodie Basket (22): Book Haul & Blog Recap

Goodie a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

(This meme is inspired by other book haul memes such as Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea and Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer )

In my Goodie Basket this week...

Just like their Halloween Promo books, Harper Collins has started their Holiday Books Promo by sending out YA/MG/Childrens books to bloggers that make great holiday gifts. This week I received their box of middle-grade books, which included...

Charlotte's Web (60th Anniversary edition) E.B. White
This was one my favorite books as a child and the hardcover anniversary edition is so gorgeous!

by Colin Meloy
I've had my eye on this series for awhile and am excited to finally get to read them!

The Harper Collins MG box also included:

My 16 year old sister claimed the One Direction book as soon as I opened the box and proceeded to read and fangirl over it! Now I just need to find someone with Bieber Fever who I can gift the other book to ;)

From Simon & Schuster:

I had never heard of this series before but I'm excited to start reading the spooktacular books!

Little Brown Books
sent from pub for review via Netgalley
I actually squee'd when I got the email from Little Brown about the eARC of this book! I've been waiting all year for this sequel!

Uses for Boys Erica Lorraine Scheidt
St. Martin's Press
sent from pub for review via Netgalley

sent from author for review
The first three books in this series were some of my fave YA books I read last year and I've been excitedly waiting for book 4!

Big THANK YOUs to Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Little Brown, St. Martin's Press, and P.M. Dooling for all the bookish awesomeness this week!!!
