I don’t even remember the last time I did a book haul, but what I do know is that since then I have accumulated a lot more books. The pile in room just kept growing month by month until I finally decided that I needed to do a haul and put them onto my actual shelves before they stay there forever. As usual, this haul contains loads of different books from fantasies to contemporaries to graphic novels and classics, so hopefully it won’t get too repetitive!
So here are all of the books I have picked up over the last few months!
After being really surprised by how much I enjoyed The Last Namsara last year, I just had to pick up a copy of the sequel to discover what happens next. I have also heard some great things about this story that follows new characters in this same world, and so I am super excited to explore more of this fantasy land in this companion.
This was the last book I recieved from Fairyloot before my subscription ended, and one that I strangely hadn’t heard of before then. I have yet to read a Brandon Sanderson novel as I am very intimidated by the high fantasy and complex worlds, but this sci-fi following a teenage girl who dreams of becoming a pilot seems like the perfect place to start exploring his books.
I’ve been having a really good run with YA thrillers recently, and so after seeing Cait @ Paper Fury talk about how she enjoyed this small town murder mystery, I decided to pick it up for myself. I read this one back in February and was hooked from start to finish on this story of missing homecoming queens and small town secrets.
I’ve been waiting for a continuation to A’s story every since the ending of Everyday, and so I am insanely happy that this book is finally out and that I can have all of my questions answered so many years later. As with so many series finales, I am both so desperate to pick this up and nervous to, particularly as it has been so long since I started it, and so all I can hope is that this trilogy ends well at last.
I just had to add this classic to my collection when I saw it for a very cheap at a local bookstore, as I adore the sound of this sci-fi about a world in which books are burned and television rules. It also sort of gives me 1984 vibes, which is another of my favourite classics, so I can’t wait to dive into this one pretty soon.
I actually picked this one up at the same time as Fahrenheit 451 because I am a sucker for cheap books, plus I have been curious about reading this one ever since the movie release last year. Initially, I actually planned on just watching the adaptation of this one, but after months of never getting around to doing that, I decided to stick to my usual habits and try the book out first.
Of course I had to pick up the sequel to The Cruel Prince as soon as it was released a few months ago, and so its probably not surprising that this is also one of the books in this haul I’ve already read. Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed this dark faerie story that still managed to shock me with its twists, and so I already can not wait to get my hands on the final book in this trilogy.
Despite my love for Beauty and the Beast, I’m pretty sure I have never read a retelling of it, which is exactly where this book comes in to fill that hole. Not only am I super interested in seeing how this story spins one of my favourite fairy-tales, but I also love the diverse nature of this story and can not wait to see how much I fall in love with this new release.
Although I have yet to read A Darker Shade of Magic, another V. E. Schwab book that has been on my TBR for goodness knows how long now, I decided to pick up another of her books that I have also been desperate to read ever since I first heard about it. This book has so many amazing reviews, and sounds exactly like my sort of read, and so I can’t wait to hopefully get round to this one a little sooner than I have done with some of her other books.
So despite the fact that I have yet to read Amanda Foody’s debut novel, Daughter of the Burning City, I just couldn’t resist picking this one up when it was released as it just sounds exactly like my sort of read. Since I picked this on up, I have read the first chapter of her debut, something that now has me even more excited to dive into both of her stories!
I have been following Savannah for a while now, and so have watched her journey writing this book and releasing into the world, so i just had to pick myself up a copy when it finally came out in March. I am also super interested in what this high school thriller holds, especially as I have been really enjoying other similar books that I have read recently.
I finally picked this one up a month or so ago after seeing this graphic novel everywhere after its release in physical form. I have yet to read another graphic novel since Nimona, and so I can not wait to correct that with this boy-meets-boy romance that I’m sure I will fall in love with.
