Here we are again with a book haul. Only the second one of 2019. So far I think I’ve been doing decent in terms of buying books. A lot of them were gifts. And one cannot say no to those. As for the ratio of hauled books read I think that is rather decent too. I’ve read a few and a lot of the others are on my tbr for the next few months.
★ Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake
I won this book from The Reading Hobbit’s Giveaway at the end of February and it has a book plate too! ❤
★ Slayer (Slayer 1) by Kiersten White = READ
Husband was going to keep this wrapped up until our wedding anniversary but when I got really sick for a week he gave it to me on World Book Day ❤
★ The True Queen (Sorcerer Royal 2) by Zen Cho = READ
My pre order came in ❤
★ Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor 2) by Jessica Townsend = READ
I got this from a friend as a very late birthday present ❤ After having read Nevermoor I just needed it.
★ Lud-in-de-Mist by Hope Mirrlees
You know I’d never heard of this classic fantasy until I saw the new Dutch release two years ago I think. I’ve had my eye on it for a while but never bought it. When I saw it for less than 50% of the price at book fest I had to grab it.
★ Clariel (Abhorsen 4) by Garth Nix
★ Goldenhand (Abhorsen 5) by Garth Nix
I own the first 3 in Dutch, and again when I saw them cheapish at book fest I could not leave them. Clearly I am not a 100% ready to read this series lol. And look Clariel has a dragon on the cover so clearly this is for me haha.
March Acquired: 7
April Acquired: 6
★ Lethal White (Comoran Strike 4) by Robert Gailbraith
Okay I caved. I was waiting forever for my reservation of the library to come in and when my mom asked me if I wanted it, how could I say no?
★ The Ship of Smoke and Steel (The Wells of Sorcery 1) by Django Wexler
★ Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries 2) by Martha Wells = READ
Hello my beauties. I ordered this through my parents account from a website where they’ve had a subscription for many many years. It requires them to spend something on books every quarter or so. And guess who gets to order books…
★ Night Shift by Debi Gliori = READ
Mid April I got a surprise package from La La in the Library with this gorgeous illustrated booklet about depression. Thank you so much again!
★ Grey Sister (Book of the Ancestor 2) by Mark Lawrence
I read Red Sister at the start of April and really liked it. As I was ordering something for my husband as our wedding anniversary gift I accidentally came across this for 8 Euro (Okay so we all know it wasn’t an accident but shhh.)
★ Soulbinder (Spellslinger 4) by Sebastien de Castell
I have a problem but it has so pretty spray painted edges… Someone kick my ass into reading this series please and thank you.
★ Moonlocket (The Cogheart Adventures 2) by Peter Bunzl
I was happy to see book 2 on Netgalley. Can’t wait to see where this goes next!
★ The Outside by Ada Hoffmann = READ
This has an autistic mc and that was an immediate sell for me.
★ The Fever King (Feverwake 1) by Victoria Lee = READ
I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book so when it went up on UK netgalley I had to try my chances.
★ Shadow Frost by Coco Ma
I came across this on NG and the cover sold me immediately. The synopsis sounds good too!
★ Slave Warrior Queen (Of Crowns and Glory 1) by Morgan Rice
★ Rogue Prisoner Princess (Of Crowns and Glory 2) by Morgan Rice
These were free on kindle and seem like good reads to read during the Summer for when I am outside with merijn and need to be able to put down a read within a second.
★ Little Witches: Magic in Concord by Leigh Dragoon = READ
A middle grade graphic novel little women retelling seems like a lot of fun.
★ Dragonslayer by Duncan M. Hamilton
A last minute approvement on Netgalley. I mean, this title and with a dragon on the cover, of course I was going to request this!
