May 2019 #Bookhaul


I had a fruitful month in May when it comes to new books. As a result, I managed to procure TEN new review commitments. Also, I went a bit wild on Amazon buying up some inexpensive and interesting sounding Kindle books.

If you want to learn more about any of these titles – just click on the cover graphic.

From Bloodhound Books I received “Scared to Breathe” by Kerena Swan.

I will be participating in the blog blitz for this title on June 4th


I’m excited to be participating in the one day blog blitz for Lucy Hay’s “The Lynmouth Stories“.  The blitz is presented by Rachel’s Random Resources.

I downloaded FIVE titles from NetGalley.

Interestingly, four of the five titles are written by ‘new to me’ authors.

Where the story starts” by Imogen Clark

(I was auto-approved for this title from Lake Union Publishing)

Blood Orange” by Harriet Tyce

(I received a publisher’s widget for this title from Grand Central Publishing)

Death by Dark Waters” by Jo Allen

(I was auto-approved for this title from Aria)

Some Choose Darkness” by Charlie Donlea

(I was approved for this title by Kensington Books)

The Doll Factory” by Elizabeth Macneal

(I was approved for this title from Simon & Schuster Canada)

I downloaded THREE titles from Edelweiss:

Her Daughter’s Mother” by Daniela Petrova

(I received an invitation to read this title from Grand Central Publishing)

Stone Cold Heart” by Caz Frear

sequel to “Sweet Little Lies”

(I was approved for this title from Harper Collins)

Trace of Evil” by Alice Blanchard

(I was approved for this title from Macmillan)

first in a new series featuring policewoman Natalie Lockhart

So that means I have TEN more review commitments.

and… I purchased NINE Kindle titles from

This sounds like a lot, but most of these were inexpensive at time of purchase.

My total expenditure = $ 14.16










Hope you all have a great reading month in June ♥

    Some wonderful looking books here. I am envious that you got The Doll Factory, I will have to wait and get it from the library. I am always impressed by your restraint. What you get in a month, I get in a couple of weeks. Happy reading this month Lynne. 😁
