Did you think that the books from my birthday haul were the only books I got this month? Yeah, I didn’t think you would. October was a great month for new releases, and I had a few pre-orders coming in that were kind of my present to myself.
I don’t think it’s too bad what I got. Some were really cheap. I feel that is always important to point out, haha. I’m hoping to have less books next month, but I can’t make any promises. Anyway, let me know which books you got this month, and if you have read any of the books I’ve gotten.
Physical copies I bought
The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive 1) by Brandon Sanderson
★ So this is the book I mentioned in my last book haul that had been damaged. So I got the new copy a few days after I posted that post. Initially I wanted to get all of Brandon Sanderson in those white UK versions but they are a lot more expensive and this book is divided in two book in those editions. So since I haven’t read any of his books yet (though I own Final Empire) I figured I didn’t want to invest that much into it yet.
The Kingdom ( Graveyard Queen 2) by Amanda Stevens
★ This was on my list since I was it was coming out in print in September. And luckily I found it in our local book store. I read the first book as an ebook earlier this year and then purchased the Dutch copy when I saw it. While I wasn’t in love with it I think it’s one of the few paranormal crime that I am really interested in at the moment, and I’m curious to see where it will go.
Six of Crows (Six of Crows 2) by Leigh Bardugo
★I already mentioned in a Sunday Post a few weeks ago that I had found this in the local book store. I was so happy. I had been planning to pre-order it that weekend but it was already early in the store.
So remember the Boekenfestijn, the book fair where I went earlier this year? They have put up a web shop a while ago. Initially not a lot was on there, but there seems to be more now though a lot seems unavailable. But I decided I’d try it out. So I ordered these three there. I didn’t even pay 15 Euro with shipping.
Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices 2) by Cassandra Clare
★So I already have this book as a paperback, but it’s pretty and apparently a collector’s first edition so why not.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Volume 3 (BTVS Collection 3) by various authors
★ I love Buffy and this is an omnibus of three stories that was failry cheap. It’s not the best copy, but I don’t nessecarily mind with these kind of books.
The Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter 7) by J.K. Rowling
★ I’ve said in a top ten Tuesday that I threw away my Harry Potter dustjackets when I was a teen so when I saw this fairly cheaply, I had to have it. Quite happy with it.
The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard 1) by Rick Riordan
★ It’s so pretty. And yes I went with this cover and not the fire one. I didn’t like it with the figure in front of it. The arcs with just the wolf and fire were prettier than the finished copy I felt. And this matches better with my Heroes of Olympus copies.
It’s a Wonderful Death by Sarah J. Schmitt
★ I’ve been wanting this since I heard of it back in January. So happy with it.
Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes 2) by Sara Raasch
★ Another pre order for the month of October! I really liked Snow Like Ashes so I can’t wait to read this.
The Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter 1, illustrated version) by J.K. Rowling
★ I was not going to get this but than I saw it online for half price, and I could not resist! And it is so pretty.
The Ruins of Gorlan (The Ranger’s Apprentice 1) by John Flanagan
★ I’ve been meaning to read this so when I found this cheap copy at Kruidvat I got it.
Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl 1) by Eoin Colfer
The Arctic Incident (Artemis Fowl 2) by Eoin Colfer
★ I found these cute little Dutch pockets of the books in the second hand book store for 3 Euro each. I’ve been meaning to read these as well, but I didn’t want to spend too much on them. They’re not big so hopefully I can read them soonish in between some others.
The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt
★ For a while now I’ve been seeing the translated to English version around of this Dutch children’s book and it made me realize that we don’t own it and that I need to reread it because I remember very little of it.
And lastly I got this Ygritte funko that is super cute. I didn’t realize how much I liked her until that thing happened in the books. Clear much, right? Haha.
