Book Haul 58 | It Was My Birthday Haul | #Blogtober

Well it is the mid of October and at the start of this week it was my birthday. I turned 33 as you might have caught on. Because I was not doing so well in the months prior mentally I got a big as budget from my parents to buy books from. So yeah. Books

The Birtday Books

The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R. Pan
The Beholder (The Beholder 1) by Anna Bright
Firstly I bought these two second-hand from a Dutch fellow book blogger from my birthday budget. They are in great state.
Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson 5) by Patricia Briggs
River Marked (Mercy Thompson 6) by Patricia Briggs
Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson 7) by Patricia Briggs
The Brightest Fell (October Daye 11) by Seanan McGuire
I choose to spend some of the birthday budget on continuing with some longer series here.
Memories of Ash (Sunbolt 2) by Intisar Khanani = READ
You all know I am a fan of Intisar. I’ve read this one as an ebook but wanted a physical copy as well so here we are.
The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky
I’ve heard such good things about this one that I couldn’t resist buying it.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
I got this beauty from my husband ❤
The Tower of Nero (Trials of Apollo 5) by Rick Riordan
Of course this book had to be here. I always ask for it each October ❤
Drowned Country (Greenhollow 2) by Emily Tesh = READ
This was a little gift from my little man (that husband purchased)
The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson
A Deadly Education (Scholomance 1) by Naomi Novik = READ
Look at the pretties. Unfortunately since I read my arc of A Deadly Education I have been informed that there is racism in it that I missed as a white reviewer.
Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman = READ
I got this from my friend ❤
We Set the Dark on Fire (We Set the Dark on Fire 1) by Tehlor Kay Meia
Goddess in the Machine (Goddess in the Machine 1) by Lora Beth Johnson
Lobizona (Wolves of No World 1) by Romina Garber
I got these from my inlaws and sil. I am so happy. I’ve wanted to read these all since I’ve heard of them.
The Burning Page (The Invisible Library 3) by Genevieve Cogman READ
And lastly I got this next installment of this series from another friend ❤
Seven Deadly Shadows by Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani
I found this cheapish for hardcover prices and since I have been getting most of Alameda’s books I needed to have this beauty too.
The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix
De Diamant van Banarmasin by Arend van Dam
For this years children’s book week I took Merijn to the bookstore to pick out a book. And of course I picked up something for myself. The red book is the children’s book week gift.
Coral by Sara Ella = READ
I read a review copy of this book last year and it was a 5 star read that stayed with me. So when I saw it pass me by for a very decent hardcover price I had to order it.
Het Voornemen van de Muis by Toon Tellegen
I got this little book from the library as a thank you of my volunteering earlier this year.
The Archive of the Forgotten (Hell’s Library 2) by A.J. Hackwith
One of my most anticipated reads of the year!

Kingdom of the Wicked (Kingdom of the Wicked 1) by Kerri Maniscalco
Release Date: October 27th 2020

Call of the Boneships (The Tide Child 2) by R.J. Barker
Release Date: November 24th 2020

  1. Happy birthday! You got some great books! I love the look of the covers for We Set the Dark on Fire and Memories of Ash. So pretty! Also, I hadn’t realized Seven Deadly Shadows had been released! For some reason I thought the publication date was later.

    1. Honestly Seven Deadly Shadows has been flying so far under the radar. It released in January this year but I’ve only seen one other blogger talk about the book (which reminded me to look for it).


  2. Wauw! Jouw familie, man en vrienden weten duidelijk waar ze je gelukkig mee kunnen maken. Wat een mooie haul in je verjaardagsmaand. Lief ook dat je een klein attentie kreeg voor je vrijwilligerswerk bij de bibliotheek.
