Book Haul

Book Haul 55 | #Oops

This past month was uhm fairly bad on the book buying front compared to some of the other months this year. To be fair I got my tax return in June and as shit as 2020 has been so far, I figure I’d pay some authors lol. What? It sounds more positive than hoarding books.

Reading Challenge(64)

House of Dragons (House of Dragons 1) by Jessica Cluess
I was able to buy this over from a friend. Dragons okay. Okay.

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
Out of my comfort zone but I’ve heard too many great things about Acevedo that I had to give this a go

The Rise of Magicks (Chronicles of the One 3) by Nora Roberts
This was translated to Dutch and I got it from my husband. Now I have the trilogy complete so I can read this one in one go.

Stormsong (The Kingston Cycle 2) by C.L. Polk
Finally I have this one ❤

An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
I’ve had my eye on this for a while so I finally bought it.

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin 1) by Roseanne A. Brown
I was one of the lucky winners from Tammy’s Wyrd and Wonder giveaway and I choose this beauty.

Changeless (Parasol Protectorate 2) by Gail Carriger = READ
I struggled for the longest time to find this book and the ebook was so expensive. But then it suddenly popped back up so I ordered it straight away.

Shaking Hands with Death by Terry Pratchett = READ
This is the BBC Richard Dimblebly Lecture 2010 that he did then. I’ve been meaning to get this one. Its only about 50 pages but it does pack a punch.

I also ordered this (e)book sleeve and pinhoop from Books Art Liberty. My protection thingy that came with my sony e reader was dying a slow death. So I figured this cutesy dragon one could replace it and if I ever need a new ereader (as my sony will not live forever) it will also fit. I think I am also going to order some more of the pin hoops to display differently.


I ended up making two orders of each 2 books by black writers.

The City We Became(Great Cities 1) by N.K. Jemisin
I really loved Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy and I would really just like to read all her books out so far.

★ The Kingdom of Gods (Inheritance 3) by N.K. Jemisin
I have the first two books that I am planning on reading this Summer so I figured I needed the last book too.

A Phoenix First Must Burn. Edited by Patrice Caldwell
The cover is so pretty and I think short stories can be a great way to find new authors to try out.

I got an e arc of this but it wouldn’t work properly on my e reader so I ended up resorting to buying the published ebook.

I ended up buying this after liking to many of the authors tweets on twitter.

    1. I loved The Poet X (lend it from a friend last month) and Clap When You Land was a good read as well. I really want to read With the Fire on High sometime this year as well.

  1. Wauw, dat is een indrukwekkende buit. Ik ben er in juni in geslaagd om geen enkel boek aan mijn collectie toe te voegen maar op mijn verjaardag kreeg ik er wel zeven. 🙂 Vermits daar twee dikke exemplaren bij waren heb ik dit weekend gepuzzeld om alles in mijn boekenkasten te krijgen. Tja, zowel Diana Gabaldon (Sneeuw en as) als Lisa Maxwell (De duivelsdief) waren een uitdaging op dat vlak.

  2. Wow fabulous haul! I really liked Clap When You Land, I hope you do too! I also just bought The City We Became, hope we both love it! The Conductors also looks awesome! I am reading Seven Devils now, and also am super curious about Ever After, so I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts!
