Book Haul

Book Haul #31 – The Rest

So here we are again. I really thought I would be able to buy less books in March and yet, nope. So much nope. I have no restraint. Lets just hope April is going to be better. ._.

+ = Read

The Girl with All the Gifts (The Girl with All the Gifts 1) by M.R. Carey
My friend bought this last year and she knew that I wanted to read it too. So when she finished this earlier this year she gave it to me, saying she wasn’t going to reread it anway. ❤

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles 1) by Patrick Rothfuss
It is the tenth anniversary edition and  it is gorgeous and I could not leave it when I saw it in real life even though I already have the paperback. Lesigh.

Lake Silence (The Others 6, The World of the Others 1) by Anne Bishop +
Since the Dutch publisher seems to be unlikely to translate on with this series I got the English edition when it released.

The Legion of Flame (Draconis Memoria 2) by Anthony Ryan
I got the first one last year and though I still haven’t read it, having the second one might kick my ass into gear to pick up these huge books. I also promised my husband when I got this that I would read them both this year. Fingers crossed.

A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet 1) by Madeleine L’Engle
Gezien de Feiten by Griet op de Beeck +
Het Houden van Mannen by Myrthe van der Meer +
So this March it was the Book Week again from the 10th to the 18th. Gezien de Feiten is this year’s book week gift and since I wanted it I had to buy Dutch books worth of 12,50 Euro. Both of the above books were 10 each so I had to buy them both. Great logic. I’ve been meaning to get to A Wrinkle in Time. The stills I’ve seen of the movie have been great. And I liked Myrthe van der Meer’s Paaz so I was curious about this one.

The Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha 1) by Tomi Adeyemi
The Dutch edition came out nearing the end of March and after a difficult doctor app for my mental health my husband gifted me this pretty.

Queens of Fennbirn (Three Dark Crowns 0.5) by Kendare Blake
I haven’t even read Three Dark Crowns but I could not resist this bind up of the two novella’s. I’ve seen some people recently loving Three Dark Crowns and it has had me itching to read it.

You know if you see this physical haul it probably doesn’t seem so bad for March but I am going to direct your attention on this extra book haul I got from the Boekenfestijn, this Anderwereld Unboxing and this Celebrate Books unboxing.

Ebooks

The Smoke Thieves (The Smoke Thieves 1) by Sally Green
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Defy the Worlds (Constellation 2) by Claudia Gray
Twice Dead (The Necromancer’s Song 1) by Caitlin Seal
All from Netgalley. I think I got lucky. ❤ But I am so not allowed to request anymore until I finish all of these that are for april/may or have already been released. I have 6 still to read in total.

  1. That’s a really cool cover for The Name of the Wind! I have the black one with the leaves… i actually ended up reading it on kindle (buying a second copy basically), because it was so big 😀

    The Girl with All the Gifts was my first zombie book (well, sort of zombie i guess?), and i liked it a lot.

    Nice books you got!

    1. I have that one too but I thought this might get me to pick it up a bit sooner to read. The spine screams at me from the shelves haha.

      I am very curious about The Girl with all the Gifts~!

  2. I really liked The Girl with All the Gifts. I have The Boy on the Bridge, and Fellside to read too. I guess The Boy on the Bridge is set in the same world as Gifts. Yay for Wrinkle! I am so happy you are going to read it. I might buy The Children of Blood and Bone in hardcover before I even read it; I love the cover that much. You got some good bargins, so not so bad? 😋

    1. I am very curious about it. I haven’t heard much about The Boy on the Bridge though since it came out.
      I am very curious. The movie trailer caught my attention. I think the naked hc of blood and bone is really pretty in the us edition?
      You are an enabler too. 😉

  3. Misschien moeten we samen een clubje beginnen als de NSAB (Not So Anonymous Bookaholics). Niet om het kopen van boeken af te leren maar gewoon om er over te praten en ons zelf er van te blijven overtuigen dat het geen kwaad kan vermits boeken geen vervaldatum hebben en we die echt ooit een keertje allemaal gelezen gaan hebben. 😉
