Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s June on Friday, this year is going by way, way too fast! I feel like this year has gone by in such a blur. I feel like my book haul posts are slowing down now and I’m actually reading more books that I am buying. My May haul was small and I am pleased with what I have acquired this month. Three I purchased myself and one was sent to me for review: So without further ado, here is my May haul:
1) Charmcaster by Sebastien De Castell
I am actually in love with the covers for this series! They are so bright, so eye-catching and so damn beautiful! I was so excited when this book came out and I’m actually already halfway through it now! Expect to see it on my May wrap up, woop! I ordered a signed copy, but unfortunately it arrived damaged! I’m getting a replacement though so fingers crossed that one arrives in perfect condition! I thought I’d read this now though so I can keep my replacement nice! I’m being sneaky. From how much I have read of this so far, I love how each book has new characters and is in a different setting, it makes it that more exciting! I still love Kellen, he is so adorable.
2) Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough
I won’t lie to you, this was totally a cover buy. I hear this author writes pretty explosive books with incredibly twists and shocking endings. I haven’t read her first book but I saw this in Hardback for only £4.99 so I was like gimme, gimme. I have no idea what it is about but that cover looks awesome and is already making me nervous about reading it! I hope it’s good!
3) Legendary by Stephanie Garber
I haven’t even read Caraval yet and I bought this! Maybe it will finally push me to read it knowing that I can pick this one up straight after. I haven’t heard anything bad about this series so I’m not too mad at myself for buying the second book. I haven’t actually picked it up yet but I pre-ordered a signed copy so I hope it is actually signed now! I also really want to see what my hidden cover is under the dust jacket! I got one I didn’t really want last time, so hopefully this time I will get the one I have been hoping for!
4) The Captives by Debra Jo Immergut
This is the book that was sent to me for review and I’m not very far in yet. I’m on p130 and it’s very slow going. It’s different to crime/psychological thrillers I normally read but it sounded really good! It’s literally set in a prison and I’m struggling with it a bit because I don’t have a clue what a lot of it means. Basically there’s two main characters, one was convicted of murder and sent to prison for life. The other is the prison psychologist who does sessions with her. The psychologist remembers her from school and he had a crush on her. He is now captivated by her again and that’s kind of where I am up to at the minute. You are just finding out about both their lives and ultimately what made her murder someone. I’ll have a review for this up in June!
So these are the books I have acquired this month! I am very happy with them and I think it’s awesome how I am already reading two of them even though my TBR is giving me a death glare. What books did you purchase this month? Feel free to leave a comment below! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
