Book Haul

Book Haul #49 – Amazon (de) Sale

It all started with a tweet.

Anniek from Anniek’s Library tweeted about the German Amazon sale and it was the downfall to many of us. (Ps: go visit her blog/twitter, she is awesome). I jest of course.
But I did buy from Amazon (German) for the first time. In 5 orders for a total of 16 books. I KNOW.

I decided to do this haul seperately. I’m usually not one to go insane in sales. However these were all new books. Hardcovers were between 4,50 and 6 Euros and paperbacks were even cheaper. I could not quite pass that up. I paid about 75 Euro for these 16 books which were mostly hardcovers. Which I would have paid 250 Euro for on the Dutch online website that I often order at.ย  So money well spend I say.

Package Delivery 1

I ordered most books on Tuesday and Wednesday. And on Saturday I already got the first 10 books. It was a great feeling to get to unpack such a large box of books. I’ve never ordered this many books in one go.

Aiko is a bookstagram kitty.

โ˜… Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo (PJO and the Olympians 5.5) by Rick Riordan = READ
โ˜… Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh = READ
Two novella’s that I added in my cart quite quickly. Of course I needed The Singer of Apollo for my collection (here it was available as ebook only and currently unavailable even). And I have heart great things about Silver in the Wood so it seemed like an obvious choice to add it.

โ˜… Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill
After having read The Tea Dragon Festival I have been wanting to read more by Katie O’Neill and this looked so cute.

โ˜… The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad
I was so excited this was in the sale because I have been meaning to get it but nobody ever put it on the top of my wishlist when buying for me. Tss. But look at how pretty!

โ˜… These Witches Don’t Burn (These Witches Don’t Burn 1) by Isabel Sterling
โ˜… The Wise and the Wicked by Rebecca Podos
The same goes for these next two to be honest. I am so pleased to now have them in my possession. Especially The Wise and the Wicked โค

โ˜… Space Opera (Space Opera 1) by Catherynne M. Valente
I enjoyed Valente’s first book of her MG series and while I am not a fan of song contests this sci-fi setting just sounded super interesting and I can’t wait to see what she made of it.

โ˜… Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake 2) by Victoria Schwab
I kind of went back and forth on ordering this one. I do own City of Ghosts but I haven’t read it yet and I have heard some mixed things about it. Even so, couldn’t quite pass it up.

โ˜… Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
I have only heard great things about Anna-Marie McLemore so when I saw 3 of her books in the sale I ordered all 3. No shame.

โ˜… Gods of Jade and Shadow by Sylvia Moreno-Garcia = READ
This is the only book out of them all that I have read before ordering already, as an e arc. I needed it. It was good and it deserves a place on my shelves.

Package Delivery 2

On Monday these two were brought. Which is quite special because normally we don’t have package delivery on Monday unless extra paid.

Look at this purdy stack.

โ˜… Hunted by Meagan Spooner
โ˜… The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie
I’ve been meaning to get Hunted for ages but it just never surfaced to the top of the list. And I really need to jump on reading Ann Leckie. She sounds like my cup of tea.

โ˜… Not Even Bones (Market of Monsters 1) by Rebecca Schaefer
โ˜… The Serpent’s Secret (Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond 1) by Sayantani DasGupta
Yes to having Not Even Bones. I’ve heard some great things. And you might have seen me shouting when I saw that The Serpent’s Secret was in this sale. It was the next diverse MG I wanted to purchase and I was so happy to see it. โค It is also super pretty and shiny. I am in love with it.

Package Delivery 3

โ˜… When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
โ˜… Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore
And lastly these two pretties came in.

 

The whole stack

ย Do you get tempted by sales like these?

  1. I wish I had joined that amazing sale… The bookworm in me is dying to touch and smell new physical books (I’ve only been reading e-books lately).

    Anyway, this is such an amazing book haul! I really want to read The Candle and the Flame and Gods of Jade and Shadow. Hunted is one of my favourite books. Hope you love it as much as I do.

    Happy readings!

    1. I think they have it at least once a year so hopefully next year? Hugs.

      Gods of Jade and Shadow is great! I can’t wait to read The Candle and the Flame as well. And I’ve been eying Hunted since it first released years ago.

  2. Man, you got a real deal on these! I don’t think our sale here in the US was that good. xD Though, we did snag *some*. I was mostly well behaved and only bought a couple Kindle books for myself and bought things for Christmas for others lol. You snagged so many good books, though! I had the same thought about Tunnel of Bones. I’ve decided to just wait and read the first one first, in case I don’t like it, but then again, I didn’t see it go on a particularly good sale, otherwise I might’ve been tempted. xD

    1. Ha yeay. Good that you behaved. Your husband was pleased I bet haha. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Yeah like I would not have bought it full price but with this I could not really resist. It is Victoria Schwab after all.

  3. Die haul verdient inderdaad een eigen blogpost. Ik ben nog steeds blij dat ik er deels aan heb kunnen weerstaan. Niet volledig uiteraard want dat was onmogelijk met die mooie prijzen. Deze verkoop gaf me eigenlijk hetzelfde gevoel als de eerste bezoekjes aan het Boekenfestijn. In het begin waren de prijzen daar ook zo laag dat ik heel wat boeken in mijn mandje heb gelegd waarvan nadien bleek dat ze toch niet echt mijn ding waren. Ik merkte dat ik ook dit keer weer vlotjes aan het bij elkaar sprokkelen was maar heb er nadien toch nog maar eens met een kritisch oog naar gekeken en er vervolgens heel wat boeken terug uitgehaald. Momenteel staat mijn tbr dus even lager dan bij de start van het jaar (hoera!) maar dat gaat wsl niet lang meer duren vermits de feestdagen en Secret Santa swap voor de deur staan. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Ja heel knap. ๐Ÿ˜€ Voor mij is het wel wat anders dan boekenfestijn want heel veel van deze boeken stonden echt al een tijdje op mijn lijstje maar er was nog geen paperback uit en de hardcovers waren steeds nog zo duur.
