Book Haul

Book Haul #51 | In Which I Am Behaving on the Physical Book Buying Front…

Would you look at that title. Aren’t you amazed.  I’m really trying to limit my impulsive book buying and so far it is going okay this year. Go me. I only bought 3 physical books. If that was the only thing in this book haul you would applaud. Unfortunately there is such a thing as ebooks…

Of Curses and Kisses(St. Rosetta’s Academy 1) by Sandhya Menon
After having finished what I owned of Enchanted Inc. and stumbled on this book at my local bookstore, I bought it. Since I’ve heard such good things about Sandhya Menon I decided to pick it up.

Exit Strategy(Murderbot Diaries 4) by Martha Wells
So because I really wanted to get this one, I opted on buying a copy second-hand for half price. However this came without the dustjacket. I weeped. But it was my own fault for going second-hand I guess..

Holy Sister (Book of the Ancestors 3) by Mark Lawrence
Last year I read books 1 and 2 and really enjoyed myself. However I had to wait on my matching mass market paperback until this February. Yes I did pre-order it ha.

The Girl and the Stars (Books of the Ice 1) by Mark Lawrence

Incendiary (Hollow Crown 1) by Zoraida Cordova

Poison & Lies (Spellcaster Academy Episode 8) by Jenetta Penner
Release Date: March 30th 2020
A Touch of Death (The Outlands Pentalogy 1) by Rebecca Crunden
The author contacted me to see if I was willing to read it. It sounded interesting so here we are.
Nothing is Strange by Mike Russell
Again I was asked to review this book. It is a short stories collection that sounded interesting.
Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts (Steampunk Romance 4) by Nancy Campbell Allen
Release Date: August 4th 2020
So I didn’t realize this was a fourth book in a series but it looks like it follows different characters each time. I’m going to see during the Summer if I want to start at the start or am just going to wing it right on with book 4. It is a little out of my comfort zone. However last year I really enjoyed the book I picked up in general mind so here we are. And it is steampunk!
The Order of the Pure Moon Reflected in Waterby Zen Cho
Release Date: June 23rd
So I might have fist pumped when I got approved. Zen Cho is one of my favorite authors.

  1. I was just thinking to myself the other day: oh, I’ve been doing so well not buying books the last month! Until I remembered all those ebooks that I got… Its’ a terrifying amount really 🙈 Well done on holding back! Lol

  2. I’m looking forward to Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts too. I started that series of books last year, I think, and enjoyed them. You don’t need to read in series order because each book focuses on a different character and situation.

  3. Oh, die Of curses and kisses heb ik in Antwerpen nog in mijn handen gehad maar ik heb hem uiteindelijk toch maar teruggelegd met Londen in mijn achterhoofd. Tot nu toe kocht ik drie boeken in januari, geen in februari (nu ja, ik bestelde er bij Awesome Books maar die zijn nog steeds niet aangekomen dus tellen ze nog niet) en gisteren twee oudere paperbacks van Jill Shalvis bij de Kringloopwinkel.

  4. If you can’t see them, they don’t count, so shhhh, those ebooks totally don’t count. That’s what I’m going with. *cough*

    I’ve got The Girl and the Stars, too, and I can’t wait to read it! It sounds so good. I still really need to read This is How You Lose the Time War, too.
