Fall Book Haul

I cannot resist shining new books if I happen to find them for a good price. My TBR is already looming over me, but how could I resist! What if the next candidate for buying these books is a book-destroying-monster and these precious beauties goes to that person if I don’t give them a loving and safe home? (I have to admit that this reasoning is a bit tricky when I buy ebooks.)

Most of the books I buy are for my kindle because I get really good deals through eReaderIQ. If you want to know more about that, I talked about it in my last haul which you can check out here!

šŸ° = ebook, šŸŒŸ = new physical copy, šŸ‰ = second hand physical copy, šŸŽ‰ = a sale find

Clariel by Garth Nix šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I had just finished the Abhorsen, the third book in the Abhorsen series, and I was grieving the fact that my library doesn’t have Clariel when it popped up in a kindle sale!

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I’m so excited to read Ash Princess! It has received some mixed reviews but somehow I have this funny tickling feeling that I’m going to love it. Maybe it’s that gorgeous cover.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, The Cruel Prince gets a lot of hype and as a person who is not into fae I thought that I wouldn’t read it. But then it popped up in sale and, I don’t know, what if it is worth the hype and I’m missing something amazing? I need to read it!

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I have heard that the Sleeping Giants compares to Illuminae Files and I’m trash for that series. Can’t wait to read it!

Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown šŸ°, Ā£2.99, This one I got for an LGBT bookclub I’m part of. I read it already and I have some of my thoughts in my Goodreads review.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I might be the only bookaholic in planet earth who hasn’t read the Book Thief! But now I have a copy so I can fix that šŸ˜…

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£1.99, I’m so happy that I have a copy of this! The Girl in the Tower is the sequel to Bear and the Nightingale. This will be a perfect read for wintertime!

She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders by Jennifer Finney Boylan šŸ‰, Ā£4.05, A book for the October LGBT bookclub! I dislike the cover but this book was so good! See my thoughts in Goodreads.

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima šŸ‰, Ā£2.52, I have been desperate to start this epic fantasy series for so long! I finally decided to go for it and buy the first book.

Emily of New Moon by L.M Montgomery šŸ‰, Ā£3.80, You probably know that Anne of Green Gables was written by L.M Montgomery but have you heard of Emily of New Moon? I haven’t read Anne but Emily was my favourite growing up and I want to read these books again soon. The cover is so pretty!

Lips Touch by Laini Taylor šŸ‰, Ā£3.68, Laini Taylor is probably my favourite author because she created the perfect thing called Strange the Dreamer. I am vowed to devour everything she has ever written!

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I have been eyeing this middle grade fantasy for the longest time. I don’t read much middle grade but for some reason I’m desperate to dive into this one. It looks so whimsical!

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, Another Holly Black novel! I put this in my TBR shelf after I heard WhittyNovels praise it and I just automatically bought it when it went on sale.

Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb šŸ°, Ā£0, This was my Kindle First pick for October. As a prime member I get to have a kindle ebook for free from a selection of editor picks. The synopsis sounds really intriguing.

I am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, I love Malala, who doesn’t? I have seen the documentary, countless interviews with her and read her articles. But I still haven’t read the book. Now I can!

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, So listen, I haven’t read Ember in the Ashes yet, but somehow I have this strong feeling that I’ll love this series and binge read it at some point. So I bought the sequel already. I’m awful I know, I really should read the first book before buying the sequel but oh well.

A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M. Harris šŸ°šŸŽ‰, Ā£0.99, This is an interesting one because I can’t remember anything about it. I had placed an eReaderIQ alert on it (to get a notification when it goes on sale) and I had placed it in my TBR in Goodreads. But I can’t remember why. Funny but I just bought it then when it was on sale, I bet it’s okay, the cover is nice!

That’s my book haul! I bought 17 books in 2 months šŸ˜±šŸ˜± Sounds crazy but I actually read 17 books within those same two months! So yay, not over the top at all! It’s important to make sure that I never run out of books šŸ˜‚

Have you bought books recently? Which ones? Do you get physical books or ebooks? Or do you prefer the library? Tell in the comments, I would love to know!!

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Oh The Book Thief, I love that book and I hope you end up enjoying it!! šŸ˜ I also thought I would never really read The Cruel Prince, but ever since my library got it I was like ‘why not give it a try’ so let’s see what we both think of it šŸ˜±

    1. I’m so glad to finally have the Book Thief, I think it can’t be anything less than amazing with so many people loving it! Oooh how exciting, maybe we will both end up loving the Cruel Prince unexpectedly! That would be pretty awesome šŸ˜±

  2. I read Sleeping Giants and Illuminae and I loved them both, even though they are completely different. They both have this unusual format of
    transcriptions of differents documents and files, but that’s it when it comes to similarities. I feel like Sleeping Giants is much more mature. And this story feels much more probable – which makes it feel like A LOT of fun.
