Book Haul #2

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my second book haul of the year. It’s been ages since I posted my last one, maybe March? Crazy how that time has flown! Back then I was doing the read three books buy one challenge and incase you are wondering, I’ve stopped doing that now simply because I can’t be bothered keeping track anymore. I think I got halfway through the year and then just stopped, whoops!

Anyway, here are books I’ve purchased lately and a lot of these I bought because they’re by my favourite authors or I just really liked their previous books! Here’s what I got:

Finale by Stephanie Garber: I’m late talking about this because I already read it (finally!). It was so good and such an awesome end to such a beautiful series. Stephanie’s writing is seriously magical and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff: I’ve been waiting two freaking years for this book and it’s finally here! I have completely forgot what happened in Nevernight so I will be starting the whole trilogy from scratch. Also how beautiful is this cover? So nice!

Five Bookish Items I Want to See More of in Subscription Boxes!

Hey guys! I thought I’d do something a bit different today by talking about subscription boxes and some items that I’d like to see more of! Now I don’t buy many subscription boxes, I’ve only tried FairyLoot and Illumicrate (both UK based) then bought a few items from OwlCrate (US based). Sadly I can afford to buy the whole OwlCrate box because shipping from the US to the UK is ridiculous.

When seventeen-year-old Tati sends a saliva sample to a DNA ancestry testing site her results come back inconclusive. What’s wrong with her DNA? And what does it have to do with her unexplained seizures and the beckoning tunnel she sees during them?

With knowledge of their existence a deadly threat in every universe, the only chance all four have to survive is to work together to take down the scientist responsible: their father.

October 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! So at the beginning of the year I said one of my goals was to tackle my TBR and get it down from 80 to like 50. Sadly that hasn’t happened yet, it’s currently hovering at around 70 (I haven’t counted it in a while) so for the last few months of 2019, I really want to attack my unread books and really get them down. Watch this space to see if it actually happens! Here’s the books I’ll be tackling in October:

No One Home by Tim Weaver: I didn’t manage to get to this one in September but I don’t mind now because I realised it’s perfect for October! It’s the tenth book in the David Raker series and it sounds like a spooky one! The residents of a small village called Black Gale all get together for a dinner party on Halloween (See? Perfect for October!) but the next morning they have all vanished. Is Raker looking for nine missing people or nine dead bodies? Eek! Can’t wait to find out what happens. I’m not really a theme/season reader but I can at least make the effort during Halloween!

Killfile by Christoper Farnsworth: This was a trade I made on Facebook and it actually sounds really cool! The main character is like a hitman I guess but he can read minds and make people see things that aren’t actually happening! It sounds different and exciting so again, can’t wait to see how this one goes.

July 2019 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! Who else thinks this month went by really fast?? I managed to read 10 books and I’m very happy with that! I loved the majority of them and I actually reread an entire series which was good! I don’t reread books that often so to reread an entire series was awesome. Here’s what I read in July:

The Spider Dance by Nick Setchfield: This is the sequel to The War in the Dark and one of my most highly anticipated sequels! It really didn’t disappoint and was totally worth the wait. The author perfectly brings together an incredible mix of genres to form this amazing story! It was a very fast paced plot and was action-packed from start to finish.

The Retreat by Sherri Smith: Another amazing book from Sherri Smith! It’s about a group of friends who go on a wellness retreat but… only one of them will leave alive. The twist at the end was perfect. Sherri did such an amazing job of keeping it all hush, hush until that jaw-dropping twist at the end. I don’t know how I didn’t see that coming! Such a great story with very complex characters. Definitely worth a read!
