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. So money well spend I say.

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.

★ Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo (PJO and the Olympians 5.5) by Rick Riordan = READ
★ 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.
★ 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.
★ 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!
★ These Witches Don’t Burn (These Witches Don’t Burn 1) by Isabel Sterling
★ 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 ❤
★ 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.
★ 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.
★ 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.
★ 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.
★ Hunted by Meagan Spooner
★ 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.
★ Not Even Bones (Market of Monsters 1) by Rebecca Schaefer
★ 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. ❤ It is also super pretty and shiny. I am in love with it.
