Book Haul #26 – The One Where I Barely Bought Books but Still Got a Lot

Untitled On Twitter I posted a poll to ask if I should post my November and December book haul as I have been combining two months together this whole year. But it was voted to post them separately so here is my November book haul. I technically only bought 2 books myself. An ebook and a cheap buy I found in the local book store. Even so I ended up with plenty of books still…

+ = Read

UntitledThe Ship Beyond Time (The Girl From Everywhere 2) by Heidi Heilig +
I bought this with a gift card I got for my birthday after really enjoying the first book!

UntitledSpiegelgeest (Drakenzieler 1) by Cocky van Dijk
Kristallen Hart (Drakenijs 1)  by Cocky van Dijk
I won these books through a giveaway on a Dutch facebook page for Books on Air at the end of October and they arrived at the start of November.  They are dragon books!

2017-11-08_04-49-19I, Robot (Robot 0,1) by Isaac Asimov +
As talked about in this post, this was a free gift at the library.

2017-11-10_04-36-49The Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter 2, illustrated edition) by J.K. Rowling
The Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter 3, illustrated edition) by J.K. Rowling
So who has the best husband of ever? Remember when in November my IPOD died and I was sick too with my voice gone, again? Well he got these two for me. ❤

So I have the first book of this trilogy already and when I found the second one for 5 Euro at my local book store I had to buy it. I proudly admit that this was only the second book I bought myself with my own money in November.


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (illustrated edition) by Newt Scamander (and J.K. Rowling)
I had been eyeing this one since I saw it. I had it on my Christmas wishlist and when it was cheapish (17,50 euro) at the Black Friday sale I notified my husband of this. He ended up giving it to me at the end of November when it came in instead of waiting until Christmas. ❤

First Keeper – A Landkist short story by Steven Kelliher +
As I was reading the third book I figured I could sign up for the news letter and get this short story to read as an inbetween as well.
The Death of Dulgath (The riyria chronicles 3) by Michael J. Sullivan
I’ve seen his books around and when I saw that this book was up for grabs free (through Raven & Beez)  for a short time I figured I’d give it a go. This is tecnically a third book in a series but I have been assured that this can be read as a standalone easily.
The Silver Tide (The Copper Cat 3) by Jen Williams
After having read the Dutch translations through the library in early November I knew I wanted to read this installment too. The last one I think. Unfortunately it has not been translated and I doubt it will be at this point so I bought the book to finish it.

Where the Stars Rise: Asian Science Fiction and Fantasy +
When I first heard about this book I knew I needed to read this. But when I came across it on Netgalley it was wish only. But the publisher granted my wish. Yeay!
Halayda (Star-Fae 1) by Sarah Delena White
This was a bit of an impulse netgalley request based on that cover.
Furyborn (The Empirium Trilogy 1) by Claire Legrand
I wished for this on Netgalley and was approved!
The Carver and The Unseen (Order of the Bell 1 and 2) by Jacob Devlin
I joined the publishers reviewer network and was able to get these for review. I’ve seen them around a bit and am so drawn to those covers.

  1. nice haul!!! the carver and the unseen sounds so awesome!! And I love it as Netgalley grants wishes haha. Furyborn was my last granted wish as well over there, and I’m so happy with that e-arc. From what I’ve read so far: EPIC. I really think this is going to be one of my 2018 favorites ❤

  2. Ahh I wished and was approved for Furyborn too and it’s my FIRST ever wish approval?! I’m like so pleased haha. And all the dragons in this haul makes me very happy. :’) And I love the Girl From Everywhere series! I got a bit confused in the sequel so I’m totally rereading it via audiobook someday.😂

  3. Maartin did good by buying those pretty Harry Potter illustrated editions. *Offers him cake* Well done, sir. I love the dragon books. They look lovely. I was wondering if you could make a list of introductory novels you’d recommend for someone who hasn’t read much about dragons (me!). I have heard so much of the Michael J. Sullivan series. I hope you like it. It’s like popular, but not too popular. OMG. I have that first book in the Heidi Heilig duology (It’s a duology, right?). I’ll give it a shot this month.

    1. That he did.
      Oh difficult. Would you like just dragons or humanoid dragons? If you want just dragons there is the Wings of Fire books that are a middle grade series with just dragons. And there is the Seraphina duology by Rachel Hartman with humanoid dragons. The Last Namsara is also an interesting place to start. In a lot of cases dragons come secondary though (which is such a sad thing).
      And yes it is a duology. 🙂


  4. The Potter books! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
    Keep ramping up the ebooks, haha, and you will catch up with my invisible pile. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚
    Nice haul! ☺
    Beautiful photos. 💜
