Unexpected book haul

I wandered into WH Smith today with no real intention of buying anything (I'm trying to save my money after all) and came across the quite possibly best deal ever! You know how every once in a while they sell a boxed sets of 5 books from the same genre for £9.99 to promote some series and/or authors? I don't often come across a box I'm interested in buying and when I do I usually already own 3 or more of the books in it, not really making it worth my while to purchase the set. However, when I checked today they had not 1 but 2 boxed sets that looked interesting to me and they were on special as 2 for £10. Meaning I just bagged myself 10 books for £10!

Surprisingly I only owned one of them in hard copy so far (The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan which I finally read last week and is a fantastic book) and one in digital format (I'd Tell You I love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter which was a quick and fun read). As I was already planning on getting a hold on some of the titles (Tithe by Holly Black and Ash by Malinda Lo) all the other ones are an unexpected bonus!

Now excuse me while I go crawl under my fleece with a hot chocolate and my shiny pile of new books...
