October 2018 Book Haul!

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well and are having a great month! I’m sorry for my lack of posting last week, I was actually ill halfway through the week so I didn’t have time to sit down and write anything. But today I am bringing you my October book haul! Sadly I bought a lot again this month but I have already read two of the books I purchased so that’s something! Here’s what I bought:

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton: I popped in Waterstones for a browse which in hindsight I should have known was a big mistake because I saw this in buy one get one half price. I had no intention of buying it but the staff member I was talking to said it was an absolutely mind-blowing book and that I should read it. I was immediately sold because he also said it was one of his favourite books! I read it last week so my thoughts will be in my wrap up post!

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay: The staff member was kind enough to include a book that wasn’t in the deal and he actually recommended the first book in the Dexter series. I didn’t even know what this series was about despite it having a TV show but he said he really loved this series, so I decide to purchase this as well! Again, I read this last week and will include my thoughts in my wrap up post!

September Book Haul!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my September book haul! I acquired a lot of books this month but I only bought two of them and was sent the others! They are all screaming Halloween at me and now I’m really excited for October! Here’s what books I got this month:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: This is definitely the most intriguing book I’ve gotten this month. Just looking at the cover gives me chills! It’s about a journalist who wakes up one morning and has a strange symbol tattooed on his neck and soon more appear that are accompanied by horrific nightmares. As he digs deeper he gets caught in a web of corruption and violence tangled with his own past. One way or another, he has to right the wrongs. Big thanks to Titan Books for sending me a finished copy!

In Her Bones by Kate Moretti: This definitely sounds interesting and I love the angle the author has taken, I thought it was quite refreshing. The story follows the daughter of Lilith Wade, a serial killer who was arrested for murdering six women. After a death row conviction and media frenzy, her daughter Edie is just trying to survive out of the spotlight but she has an obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. Then one man is found murdered and she becomes the prime suspect. Edie remembers nothing of the night of the murder, and must get to the truth before the police-or the real killer-find her. I’ve read plenty of stories about serial killers but none from the actual daughter or son of the killer, so I thought this sounded really interesting! Thanks Titan Books for sending me a finished copy!

August Book Haul!

Hey guys! Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks August has gone by really fast?? I can’t believe I’m posting my book haul already! I hope you have all had a fantastic month of reading and book buying! Here’s what I purchased this month:

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas: I have such a great story to tell on this! I pre-ordered both of these from Waterstones and the paperback version arrived fine (I love the purple sprayed edges, so beautiful!) but the hardback that was also signed arrived damaged. I’m always in my local shop and sadly this isn’t the first time one of my books has arrived damaged. I complained to them and they said since I’m a regular they will refund me and give me a brand new copy for free! So I actually didn’t even pay for my hardback copy in the end! I love the staff there so much, they are always so nice and cheery. Very grateful to them for giving me a copy for free! Saved me £12.99 to spend on another book!

July Book Haul!

Hey guys! I’ve had another successful month of buying hardly any books! I bought two books with my own money and then I received four for review (already read two of them). I’ve managed to read 8 books this month so I feel like I actually have a chance at getting my TBR down slowly, slowly. I’m not exactly sure what my TBR number is but it’s pretty high. I’ll have to do another count again! Anyway, here’s all the books I purchased/received this month:

You Were Gone by Tim Weaver: I honestly just bought this because the hardback was cheap and it seemed like a good deal! I need to read the rest of the books in the series first before I can read this one though. I might take some on holiday with me in September because I do really want to read them! If you haven’t heard of this series, it’s about a private investigator who finds missing people. Very good crime thrillers in my opinion. I think this is the 9th book? So you have to invest yourself in this series which I haven’t been able to do yet!

LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: I have no clue what this is about and just bought it because I like Jay Kristoff’s writing. I definitely want to read it though because just from looking at that insane cover, it seems like it will be really awesome! It has some amazing reviews too from what I can see on Goodreads. Just looking at the cover it looks very futuristic!

June Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I am combining my book haul and my wrap up post for this month because I had a terrible reading month. I have also been horrible for posting on my blog this month and I am truly sorry about that! I have hardly posted anything, it’s so bad. June has not been a good month for me in general but I’m feeling slightly better now, so hopefully I can read and post more in July!

Book haul:

 

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter: This was literally £2.99 in Sainsbury’s! I couldn’t believe how cheap it was and immediately snatched a copy up. I have seen lots of amazing reviews for this so I can’t wait to read it now!

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw: This was very kindly sent to me for review by the author and he actually signed it as well! That was such a lovely surprise and there was a cute little bookmark included as well. It sounds like a book I’d really like and the plot definitely seems unique! I’ll be reading this in July so keep an eye out for my review!

May Book Haul!

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:

Charmcaster1) 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.

April Book Haul!

Hey guys! So, I have not been good this month. I am currently reading my sixth book of the month (hoping to read 7 but we will see) and I was like, yes! That’s another six books knocked off my TBR! You know what I went and did to celebrate? I bought another 5 books! I can’t even say I regret it though because they are such pretty, deserving books. But now I do feel like I have accomplished nothing with my TBR. Oh wellll! Here are the beautiful books I bought this month:

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi: I saw this sitting in Waterstones looking all pretty and special and I just snatched it up and held onto it like it was the only copy in the world. Have I even read the Shatter Me series? No. I am just a sucker for books with pretty covers. I have no self control!

Scythe by Neal Shusterman: I have been seeing this cover everywhere and honestly I am intrigued. It sounds really good and I have been seeing great reviews for it. I wasn’t intending on buying it yet but because Restore Me had a buy one get one half price sticker I had to take advantage of that. So, naturally, when I saw Scythe with the same sticker and realised it was the only copy in the shop, that was that. It was coming home with me.
