Book Haul #39 – The One Wherein I Barely Bought Books Myself in November

See that title? And  I still managed to get a bunch of books. Of course I also got some at the end of October that came after I did my last book haul but shh.

Reading Challenge(64)

Het Juiste Spoor by Marieke Nijkamp and Corinne Duyvis = READ
Obviously I ended up buying this at the end of October (but after the wrap up of my previous book haul). This is a bind-up of two novella’s by these two dutch authors about friendships. Duyvis story is a companion to On the Edge of Gone and I loved reading it. This is the ONLY book I bought myself this haul.

The Girl in the Tower (Winternight 2) by Katherine Arden
I obviously had to have this.

The Caged Queen  (Iskari 2) by Kristen Ciccarelli = READ
This is the Dutch edition I had on pre order with some of the goodies I got for pre ordering it. So pleased.

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White = READ
One Dark Throne (Three Dark Crowns 2) by Kendare Blake
These were the two books I got in the spook-a-swap. You can see the unboxing here.

Avalon (Avalon 1) by Mindee Arnett
Polaris (Avalon 2) by Mindee Arnett
For my birthday La La in the Library got me a giftcard for Better World Books and I ordered these two from it. ❤ I’ve been meaning to get these and this was a great opportunity. Polaris is a former library book which is why there is a sticker on the cover and the spine. But that is okay. I can live with that.

Je Bent Wat je Leest. Nederland Leest 2018
Yes all Dutch. This is 2018 free book to pick up from the library for Netherlands reads. It is based on the One City One Book campaign that started in the 90’s in USA.

Foundation (Foundation 1) by Isaac Asimov
I bought this paperback cheaply from the Anderwereld sale (Dutch book webshop). I was drawn to the red edges and it being a 1966 copy.

Wonder by R.J. Palacio
My friend got this, read it and decided she didn’t want to keep it. I think I want to read this some day so here we are.

The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke
When my parents are here I am always gifted a book at the local book store (because enablers haha). I ended up going with this one. Standalone, fantasy, dark. Instant need.

ebook haul november 2018

Revenger (Revenger 1) by Alastair Reynolds = READ
So I ended up being approved on NG for the second book and didn’t realize it was a second book… I still had a small coupon so I got this as an ebook cheapish. Figured it was a good addition for Sci-fi Month anyway
Shadow Captain (Revenger 2) by Alastair Reynolds
Release Date: February 21st 2019
Here is book 2 from NG.
In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children 4) by Seanan McGuire = READ
Release Date: January 8th 2019 
So excited I got approved for this. Thank you Tor. ❤ I haven’t read the 2nd or 3rd in this series but this is a prequel story and based on The Goblin Market. Since having read the original The Goblin Market this drew my interest immediately.
Ewan Pendle and the Castle of Nightmares (Ewan Pendle 2) by Shaun Hume
I read the first book for review last year I think. Over the Summer I had contact with the author over reviewing this one but I didn’t get the ebook until the end of October, just before the release date. It is currently already out and I hope I can still get to it before the end of the year.
The Black Tides of Heaven (Tensorate 1) by J.Y. Yang
This was a freebie from Tor in November. Sometimes I can get those monthly freebies, other times I can’t. But I feel very lucky having this one. ❤
The Ingenious by Darius Hinks
Release Date: February 5th 2019
This cover just looked really good…

And a little booklet for Merijn about Sinterklaas with Miffy. I also got a similar one for him with some of the songs that go along with it. These are so cute.

    I still need to read the 2nd book in the Winternight trilogy so i restrained myself and haven't bought Girl in the Tower just yet… 😀

    The Boneless Mercies is such a pretty book.

      1. I haven’t started it yet. For some reason I decided to start with the biggest book of them all… (600 pages) because that’s clearly the way to make sure I get through as many books as possible lol


  3. Ik ben momenteel een poging aan het doen om Het meisje in de toren te lezen maar kan me maar moeilijk concentreren en zit dus nog niet helemaal in het verhaal. Er zitten weer enkele prachtige covers tussen je nieuwe aanwinsten. Die van The Ingenious vind ik bijvoorbeeld heel knap.

      1. Het meisje in de toren heb ik ontvangen als recensie-exemplaar dus ik hoop er wel doorheen te geraken. Maar je hebt helemaal gelijk, deze periode lijkt het lezen nog wat moeizamer te gaan.
