Book Haul #43 – Just May for a Change

What is that you say, I am doing a single month haul because I got too many books in it? I don’t know what you mean…

Reading Challenge(64)

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate 1) by Gail Carrigher
I found this second-hand when we were in Amsterdam (at the end of April but shhh). I was very pleased as I have book 3 I found cheaply and have been meaning to get the first.

Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
On May 11th the author was signing his book near us so my friend and I went to buy and sign the book. ❤

A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison = READ
I already read this as an e arc but when it was on offer in the waterstones with another book I wanted I had to get it. I really liked it.

Monstress volume 1 by Marjorie Liu. Art by Sana Takeda = READ
Defy the Fates (Constellation 3) by Claudia Gray
These two I got for Mother’s Day. ❤ Finally got  a chance to read Monstress. And why do I not hear anyone talking about this book being released 1-2 months ago?

Thud! (Discworld) by Terry Pratchett
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
These two I got for our wedding anniversary. ❤ They were literally wrapped for months and hidden in plain sight, lol.

Finale (Caraval 3) by Stephanie Garber
I had the other two with the secret cover and the only way to make sure you have this with the secret cover is to pre-order which is what I did. Look at the pretty.

De Zwendelprins by Rima Orie
This is a diverse fantasy by a Dutch author so of course I needed to support that.

  The Sword of Kaigen (Theonite Companion) by M.L. Wang
And lastly I won this book from the author on Twitter this month and it arrived super fast. So much thanks again. ❤ It also has a notebook and some swag with it. I love.

David Mogo, Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa
I got approved for this on NG. I am very curious but so far the reviews have not been great…
Witchsign (Ashen Torment 1)  by Den Patrick = READ
This is my second wish on netgalley to get approved within 2 weeks or so. What is this magic? Anyway it sounds really good.
Lost Gods (Lost Gods 1) by Micah Yongo
Pale Kings (Lost Gods 2) by Micah Yongo
I got approved for Pale Kings on Netgalley but it turned out to be the second in a series so I ended up purchasing the ebook since I really did want to give this series a chance.

Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World 1) by Rebecca Roanhorse = READ
And as I was buying Pale Kings I ended up getting Trail of Lightning for the wyrd and wonder readalong that happened in May.
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Approved for this on NG. ❤ I can’t wait to read it.
Not Your Backup (Sidekick Squad 3) by C.B. Lee
A late approval on NG for this beauty ❤

  1. Happy aniversary! I don’t know if I got to tell you that anywhere else around social media. 💐

    Those special covers are wild. I love them. 👍✨

    I cannot wait for my The Priory of the Orange Tree to arrive, so photo worthy. 😍 The Pratchett is gorgeous, too. 💕,

    Fingers crossed that Gods of Jade and Sorrow is every thing it sounds like it can be. 💛

  2. Ah, so many cool books!
    One of my colleagues just got the Priory of the Orange Tree. I didn’t realize that book was so huge! 😀

    Echo sounds like something i should check out.

  3. Ah, Soulless … nog een serie waarin ik wil verder lezen. Er was tot nu toe één boek dat ik wat minder vond maar de andere heb ik allemaal met veel plezier (en gegniffel) gelezen. Die cover van Witchsign is zo mooi.
