Book Haul

bookhaul may 2017

Seven moons have come and gone since my last book haul, and, in my opinion, it’s definitely time for another one. Let it be thus!

I have twelve new books to show you, and since I’ve started dabbling a bit in book subscription boxes this year, a few will be special editions. :) In addition to the lovely books, I’ve also put up some new shelves in my apartment, which I’m super excited about.

Feast your eyes!

First of all we have Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman, the second book in the Arc of a Scythe series. This book is gorgeous inside and out, and I highly recommend it. This series is only getting better and better and the third book can’t come soon enough.

I also acquired Gone Rogue, the second (and I believe last) volume in Marissa Meyer’s graphic novel series. I really enjoyed these two volumes, and I hope we’ll get to see more of Iko in the future.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black was the OwlCrate January pick, and while I didn’t manage to get that box, I decided that I needed this (signed) edition in my life.

I very much enjoyed this one, and The Wicked King is definitely one of my most anticipated releases of 2019.

Please give it to me now.

The first OwlCrate box I got was the February Hidden Worlds one, which brought The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert into my life. Sadly, I ended up not really loving this one, but hey, at least it’s super pretty.

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston came with the OwlCrate for March, and while I had some issues with this one as well, I remain hopeful that I’ll like the sequel better. Fingers crossed! Also, look at those sprayed edges.

In March I – of course – also had to get Obsidio, the last book in The Illuminae Files, and it was just as good as I anticipated. Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman is a great team, and I can’t wait for their next project.

Speaking of stunning conclusions to Sci-fi trilogies, look at this gorgeous bastard. Only Human was so so good, and I really think you should give this series a chance.

May also brought me The Burning Maze, the third book in The Trials of Apollo series, and – no surprise – I really enjoyed it. It wasn’t my absolute favourite, but Riordan really can’t go wrong when it comes to adventure, mythology, and humour.

Being in a mood for Terry Pratchett these last few months, I also couldn’t help adding three more to my collection: Guards! Guards!, Maskerade, and Carpe Jugulum. I simply adore these editions, and one day I wish to catch them all!

Last, but most certainly not least, I got the absolutely beautiful Circe by Madeline Miller. I read her Song of Achilles in 2015, and it remains one of my favourites to this day. Circe was almost as good, and I really hope Miller continues to write for many years.

And that concludes this book haul! I really hope you enjoyed it and perhaps even found one or two books you’d like to pick up yourself. :) Now look at my lovely new shelves before you go!

Aren’t they just great?

  1. You got some real treasures there! I would give an arm and a leg for the purple sprayed edges of Heart of Iron. I loved Thunderhead too! It’s one of my top reads of the year.
