Book Roundup (17) - April 21, 2013

Merriam-Webster defines 'roundup' as a gathering in of scattered persons or things (source)

Replace 'persons or things' with 'BOOKS!' and you'll have what happens in my house every week as I try to keep control of my hoard :)

This is actually a couple of weeks worth. I went so long without buying that I went a little nuts this month - hehe :)

Links are to Goodreads!

Let me know what you guys got! I love seeing everyone's new beauties :)

  1. I love Handmaid's Tale! I've read it half a dozen times in the last ten years! I thought I chose that book for WBN but was given Language of Flowers, which I thought was my second choice but I probably switched them on accident...It is also an incredible book though.

  2. Lovely haul! I"m beyond curious about The Resurrectionist! That looks wicked awesome. I think this might be the first time I've seen Pulse but the cover is really gorgeous. I hope you enjoy them!
