So this haul happened. I didn’t mean for it to happen but I could not pass up the library sale and then I had a quick trip to the charity shop and I got gifts and I have no self-control. But if you follow this blog for a while you already knew that haha.
★ The Bitter Twins (The Winnowing Flame 2) by Jen Williams
★ Down Among the Stick and Bones (Wayward Children 2) by Seanan McGuire
★ Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children 3) by Seanan McGuire
★ Fantastic Beasts 2: the Screenplay by J.K. Rowling = READ
My parents were like, you can order for 50 euro books. So here we are. After reading In an Absent Dream I realized I really need to read the other two as well so here we are.
★ The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland
I’ve had my eye on this book ever since Maraia mentioned it first and now I have it. ❤
★ Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow 1) by Danielle Paige
★ The Emperor’s Blades (Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne 1) by Brian Stavely
★ The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard 3) by Scott Lynch = READ
So this is my charity shop haul. I saw the hardcover of The Republic of Thieves and made a wild grab for it. I would love to have the whole series in hardcover with these covers some day instead of my mix matched paperbacks haha. The Emperor’s Blades is actually a Tor ARC. I was unsure if this was allowed but La La in the Library assured me that American publishers don’t mind arcs being sold in charity shops so I got it. Couldn’t help it. And Stealing Snow was not even 2 euro so I figured that was a good enough price to try it despite not hearing great things.
★ The Cuckoo’s Calling (Comoran Strike 1) by Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling = READ
★ The Emerald Storm (The Riyria Revelations 4) by Michael J. Sullivan
★ Ottoline at Sea (Ottoline 3) by Chris Riddell
And off I went to the library sale. I’m sorry for the bad photo. It were a terrible few rainy and dark days at the time. I read The Cuckoo’s Calling from the library, the whole Comoran Strike series so far, and saw this for 1 euro. I can see myself rereading these in the future so I got it.
I am so confused as to the Riyria books. So I have an ebook of Dulgath but that is another Riyra series? Oh well. I should be able to find the other books in the library as well if I want to start reading it. I’ll have to look up the reading order. And then I saw this cute little book by Chris Riddell and grabbed it.
★ The Battle for Skandia (Ranger’s Apprentice 4) by John Flanagan
★ George’s Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl
Then I found these two at the library sale, books for Merijn in the future that I will also read at some point.
★ Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children 1) by Seanan McGuire = READ
★ A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire 1) by George R.R. Martin = READ
★ Harry Potter: A Pop-Up Guide to Hogwarts by Kevin Wilson and Matthew Reinhart
And finally, for the physical books anyway, I got these books from husband for christmas. I actually asked him for no books and a seat for on the back of my bike for Merijn but he said that wasn’t a christmas present and to present my wishlist. I did not expect to get the pop up guide. *.* The Game of Thrones illustrated edition was only 10,50 euro. And I still needed Every Heart a Doorway.
★ The Final Days of Magic (Witches of New Orleans 3) by J.D. Horn
Release Date: June 18th 2019
This year I read books 1 and 2 from this series so I was quite pleased to see it pop up on NG already. I don’t love this series but I am very interested to see how it all is going to end.
★ Shadow of the Fox (Shadow of the Fox 1) by Julie Kagawa
This is already out but it was a read now on Netgalley UK and I couldn’t quite pass that up.
★ New Moon (Luna 1) by Ian McDonald
And this was the TOR freebie of the month. Sci-fi so I grabbed it. Seems like a great read for my reading challenge next year.
★ The Winter of the Witch (Winternight 3) by Katherine Arden
Release Date: January 9th 2019
I’m so happy I got an ARC for this halfway through the month. Now to read book 2 and read book 3 right after. ❤ *.* Thanks so much Penguin RH International.
★ The Armored Saint (The Sacred Throne 1) by Myke Cole
Tor send out a christmas thank you freebie for following the newsletter and that was this. Very interested. \
★ Desolation (The Keystone Bone 1) by Jesper Schmidt
★ Born of Water (The Rise of the Fifth Order 1) by Autumn M. Birt
I entered their giveaway and though I didn’t win anything they offered up their first book to all those who entered. Though I think they are free regardless.
★ The Unicorn Anthology. Edited by Peter S. Beagle and Jacob Weisman
Release Date: April 19th 2019
I saw this on netgalley and had to give it a chance.
