Book Haul 71 | Pretty Editions

Or that is what I am calling it as I am quite happy with all my pretties okay.

The last book haul was only in May and this is already coming your way early in July. But I had a few pre orders come my way and other happy bringings. So that I felt I needed to make a post now as not to have a very big one at a later point.

The Tensorate Series by Neon Yang
This is a paperback collection of the Tensorate novella’s. I read the first novella a few years ago but never got around to picking up the next few. This bind-up was perfect and I hope to read it during our camping vacation in July.

A Master of Djinn (Dead Djinn Univserse 1) by P. Djeli Clark = READ
This was one of my favorite reads of last year but the hardcover was soooo expensive. So I waited for the price to drop and once I did I pounded on it.

The Language of Ghosts by Heather Fawcett
The Dutch edition. It is pretty. The picture doesn’t show but its a bit shiny. This book is one for my 12 books recced by Twitter friends so here we are.

Fireheart Tiger by Aliette de Bodard = READ
As I was searching for more Bodard to buy as ebooks I found this for a nice price in paperback so I ordered it.

Mission: Critical. Edited by Jonathan Strahan
In the same search I found this anthology pb even cheaper. It has a story by Aliette de Bodard but also by Yoon Ha Lee. So my interest was awakened. And then I saw it was edited by Strahan who also edited The Book of Dragons. I’m going to save this one for sci-fi Month I think.

In het Vervloekte Hart by Rima Orie
A book by a Dutch author. Lets forget that I still need to read her other release as well. But this copy was so pretty and I was so happy to see that they gave such an amazing copy to a Dutch author instead of just the already popular English and American authors that I had to buy it for support. And I am genuinely excited.

Book of Night by Holly Black
Another pre order that came in was the Dutch edition of Book of Night. I’ve been really curious about it but for a change I wanted to get the Dutch edition. It is really pretty. I will show you more down below.


On a Red Station Drifting (Universe of Xuya) by Aliette de Bodard
Seven of Infinities (Universe of Xuya) by Aliette de Bodard
Of Books, Earth and Courtship (Dominion of the Fallen 0.6) by Aliette de Bodard = READ
Lullaby for a Lost World by Aliette de Bodard = READ

  1. Oooo, I’m glad to see the Tensorate novellas in one handy volume – I’ll have to look out for that as they’ve been on my list for too long.
    So many pretty books Annemieke! Happy reading! ❤

  2. The fact that you’re happy with your pretties is the important thing here. xD I still need to read A Master of Djinn! The book looks sooo pretty, though. I also need to read The Language of Ghosts, but it’s definitely a pretty one, too. I’m really excited to read Zachary Ying, too! Looks like you got a lot of great books! Hope you enjoy them all.

  3. Ooh, so many gorgeous covers! What a haul 😍 I love that cover for Master of Djinn and prefer it so much more than the digital version I have, lol. I hope you enjoy all of these reads, Annemieke!

  4. This is a great list! I’m currently reading and enjoying A Master of Djinn (finally), and I agree that I love my hardcover version, too. So pretty. I have the hardback copy of Seven of Infinities, but the de Bodard book I really want to have a hard copy of is The Tea Master and the Detective. It’s so pretty! I haven’t looked for one lately, though.

    1. These are all so pretty and also sound interesting! I’m going to come back and see what I want to add to Goodreads. 🤗

      You found some really great deals. 😎

      Are you finding that you are buying more physical editions in Dutch? 📚

      1. Sometimes I wait for the special editions. And I am more inclined to buy mg in Dutch because of Merijn so he can read them in the future. But not more than that really.


  5. Ik twijfelde of ik Dief van de nacht wil lezen vermits het laatste wat ik van Holly Black las (Water, het eerste deel uit een oudere trilogie van haar) me niet kon overtuigen. Het eiland van verloren woorden ga ik wel eens opzoeken want dat heb ik precies nog niet eerder gezien.

    1. Ja ik vond The Cruel Prince okay maar nooit verder gelezen terwijl ik oudere werk van haar wel leuk vond. Maar dit is dan weer meer volwassen dus ik ben erg benieuwd.
